PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

    Will there be any preview of 737 this week?

    SU11 has arrived, and we are looking forward to the complete PMDG737 with weather radar, EFB, DATALINK, RF legs, cabin with fine modeling(Multimedia entertainment system can interact like A310​), etc

    We may get one later in the week with details on the EFB and the -900/ER. And (I personally hope), the 777

          Yeah, looking forward to the 777 too but for me, the 747 is the one I’m really looking forward to. Hopefully soon! 😊

            I just want a dimmable clock! Who'd have thought we'd be 10 patches in and this is still on the list. Obviously proving to be much tricky than you'd imagine! XD

              And a more true to life nosewheel steering system. The airplane simply doesn’t feel weighted as a 737 does when initiating a turn with the tiller. You can see it react instantly as if it were on a switch track like a rail car. I know they are bound by the msfs limitations but I wish this could be improved upon.

                .....and the complete lack of inertia when steering with the rudder on low speeds like when starting the takeoff run. A tiny input on the rudder to one side and the nose will jump to the side as if it has no weight, and with the movement stopping instantaneously when releasing with zero inertia as well.

                This platform has so much potential, but needs to improve a lot in many areas IMHO

                  While a few of these features you mention would be nice to have -- such as the cabin and entertainment system -- I would much rather prefer that, once the 737 is completed, they move on to the 777 series. To me, I like it when PMDG make plane simulators rather than passenger sims.

                  For the WXR, the A310 seems to just depict all weather rather than function like a real weather radar. It's a nice placeholder but doesn't really match what PMDG etc offered in P3D.

                    Passenger simulator? Why wouldn’t PMDG be able to create a good simulation that also includes other aspects that many simmers enjoy and are looking for in 3rd party products? Everyone else seem to be able to do both so I’m sure PMDG will be able to as well. PMDG makes neither plane simulator or passenger simulators. They make simulators for MSFS and with that comes several aspects.

                      Are you really sure, that "interactive entertainment system" in passenger cabin is really aspect of simulation quality? Hmmm.. - it is just memory and FPS consumer. And the least important thing.

                        After reading through the SU11 change log, this line caught my attention “It is now possible to make HTTPS requests through Wasm. See documentation for more information”. Am not a programmer by a long shot, but I take it to mean WASm aircraft can now connect to the internet. Hopefully this will mean any/PMDG EFB’s can connect to SimBrief, GFO etc.

                          AND the lack of detail and missing springs and rubber end cap for the pogo-stick, IMHO.

                          It's just has so much potential.

                            First of all I never said anything of the sort. Secondly, you’re missing the point entirely. You’re probably one of those “I never leave the cockpit” simmers. For this reason I won’t bother developing this further. Let’s just leave it at this: there are reasons PMDG has plans for a high resolution cabin for the 737. I’m sorry you’re unable to understand those reasons.

                              I dont care about if pmdg plans (or not) for cabin. just challenging the intensity with some people calls for this

                              it is similar to simmers calls for sound of flaps, although you cannot hear them in cockpit

                                  Exactly, people are incredible...they complain about such insignificant details like ground physics, AP/FD - behaviour or missing rubber end caps on pogo sticks...Shame on them ! I hope PMDG will stick to the really important things.

                                  At least inibuilds provides the option. And what was offered in P3D was due to third party weather app....

                                    Yes, I'm aware. I paid for that third party software.

                                    The point is that PMDG's approach has been no compromise on systems -- so this WXR implementation doesn't really meet that approach.

                                    I do understand the argument for providing the option, though.

                                      Like the compromise on systems make were you cannot test the individual lights (preeeeetty basic function if you ask me)? Or where the complete HGS controls are missing from the FMC? Or the second flight plan?

                                      Yeah the take not compromise..... Jeeeezzz
