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.

    Hi Robert and PMDG!

    Wonderful update!! Now, the 737 handles in a more decent and civilized way... previously, it was kind of a wild horse.... I'm not going crazy with the trim.... Amazing job!

    Please, please, and please!!! Don't forget the MMS and SS.... I know that the plane is quite flyable and that it can be landed in heavy weight conditions (Emi showed it on a YT video), but still, it's quite annoying that the MMS and SS doesn't match the actual Vref speeds. Hopefully, this can be fixed before you move on with other airplanes in the development road....

    Turnaround done... time to get back in the air for the SJC-BUR leg... see ya!

      Thank you for the update. I was under the impression that SU11 was taking care of the lack of a true simulator pause in MSFS. Could you tell us what's the latest on that from PMDG's point of view?

      Appreciate your commitment.

        Must have stopped reading before you got to:
        "The SDK functionality for SU11 is still not quite usable (it won't actually allow us to build products yet- oops?) but once a functional SU11 SDK becomes stable we will alter a few lines of code and this little gem of a problem will fade into memory for everyone"

      I do enjoy these conversational updates; they are very engaging. Looking forward to the DC-6 update - does it include handrails for the pilot's access steps ? No matter if it doesn't. Anyway, I also dream of a 727 which, along with the VC-10, is one of the most elegant airliners ever built.

        Paul- One of my favorite habits is to put YouTube on the screen across my office and let it roll through classic airliner videos. I've recently taken a deep dive into VC-10 videos. I am thoroughly intrigued by this airplane because it is hard to get a sense of scale watching videos- yet I stood under the one at Duxford back in 2019 so I know it is a big airplane. Like many English designs- it is ungainly and somewhat unsightly on the ground- but the VC-10 becomes quite pretty when cleaned up and in cruise. - RSR

        Cheers Robert. I saw you and Clipper Tabitha May at Duxford that day. Thanks for coming over, and to all the crews who crossed the pond. Quite a gathering, wasn't it. You might be interested in this, if you haven't seen it already:

        RSR,
        Thanks for keeping us in the loop! I'll update my -700 & -800 soon. Truth be told, I have not had a lot of time to fly the -800 much since its release. Also, another irony. When the -700 was released, I just returned from a diving trip to the Bahamas. While I was on another trip this summer, the -800 was released when I was in French Polynesia. I know it's a long shot, but late April 2023 I'm diving in Cuba, so upon my return I am hoping the 777 is released. 😉

        Just flew my first flight with the new updated 738.
        The A/T behaviour during descent and deceleration is a crystal clear improvement from the previous version, tho I am also encountering problems about saving the hydraulic fluid state between sessions. The other guy seems to have it constantly reset to zero, while I have it constantly reset to 100 (normal max should be 94).

          Is there a workaround for pause being broken in MSFS. Is the pause found in dev mode, for example, reliable?

            Or anything else in the way of ACARS, CPDLC or cabin interaction?

            NG3 flies very well already (especially since the latest update) so this is pretty much the only thing I could wish for right now.

                Good question... It is a bit too silent about GFO. It sounded very nice in terms of features, would be a shame if already dead.

                  I think that is the current planned order and how he listed them. The 777 is after the 737NG And the 747 is before the MAX series. Either way, I am excited and will definitely buy the line.

                        The -8 and -9 are certified, the -7 and -10 are not as far as I'm aware.

                        I'll be darned, I thought SWA was already flying Max-7s. All of ours to date are -9s, but there's plenty of -8s in operation too. Now the -10 is a slightly different story with some changes, but what's the hold up on getting the -7 certified? Was it just that there were initially no orders for it? Seems like it should be as straightforward an iteration of the -700 as the -8s and -9s are of the -800 and -900ER.

                        Sorry if this has already been asked somewhere, but will the -900 include both the standard -900 and the -900ER?

                            Hello Robert

                            Quite impressive how you and your team are proceeding to get the best simulation of the B737 series ever. Actually you are fighting with basic behaviours in a wild and not very stable environment 🤪, I can fully understand. But would it be possible also to give some comments from your side for us homecockpit builders? It is quite easy for a desktop pilot to make his material working with the proceeding sim. Homecockpits need some extra functionalities and are not that easy adapted. So for our installations some periodic information about planned functions would be very helpful. Just some examples:

                            - Suppression of VC: Meanwhile I like the 3D-cockpit most on my desktop testplace, I can't use it in the homepit, also hoping for significantly higher fps in the 3-screen-visual. Should probably be solved by Asobo, but does not work since years.
                            - Standby instruments: Can we expect, that the standby instruments will be available as popouts, too? A lot of extra work, material and software could be avoided.
                            - Update of popouts: Actually popouts freeze and are useless therefore, when you switch to external views. Is it planned to make them working independently from the main view?
                            - Will it be possible to store popouts so that they are loaded automatically after a restart? Would be much more convenient than a separate, slowly working popout manager.

                            Some comments in your regular, most estimated updates would be very welcome. Anyway, thank you most for all the fantastic work 😊😊

                            Best regards from Switzerland

                              Urs- Here in the office we have the PMDG 747-400 running in the P3D environment driving a full cockpit rig. The visuals (3 projectors with 220 fov) are driven using MSFS and wideview. The 747 drives the cockpit using a project that was deep in development when MSFS appeared so it isn't quite ready for public consumption- but for the most part it works quite nicely to drive hardware from the 747. I would like to find time to integrate the capability into the 737, but had to choose between doing this or MAX at the moment... I think once we get through the major aircraft in the pipeline, we'll have time to bring that technology forward. Conversely we are about to do some hiring so with the right programmers... Who knows how quickly the tech would come forward! - RSR

                              Hi Robert, thank you so much for answering. Of course you must set priorities following the market needs. So let's hope for future functionalities as soon as there is time for. To tell you good news: My change of the PMDG B737-800 from P3D to MSFS (including 3DOF Motion and ForceFeedback) was quite successful! There were some tricks and the help of FSUIPC, but the result is remarkable, the environment just overwhelming now. We are on the good way.
                              All the best

                              Do the wipers not animate for you when you turn them on?

It is the first of the forum rules that you agreed to follow when you created your forum account (see the top of any page in the forums).
