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.

    PMDG could you plzzzzz consider the possibility of A380-800?

    There are literally no developer as good and detailed as you working on airbus planes. specially this beast of an aircraft. please let us know if it could be a possibility at least in the future.
    Best Regards

      thank you for your response
      its a shame as i heard the new msfs 2020 is cloud based and probably will cost a fortune to conduct long haul flights (internet wise speaking) . what about any perspective on airbus products?
      best regards

            Whilst I think it is unlikely - you can't say that with absolute certainty.

            I do wish someone would do a good A380 though - the technology on that thing. Plus the enormous MTOW. Four engines. And that wing. Mmmm. Such an ugly birdy though compared to the 744!

                  ..of course! Finally the pieces come together. One day you may announce the C-Series from Bombardier. As it is called the
                  Airbus A220 now, you could argue that it IS INDEED an Airbus.

                    I hate any planes by Airbus and the 380 is dead anyway. I do wonder what will PMDG take on as a new project, but I have everything I need for now.

                    Airbus: too much computer between me and my plane. I would rather have another fire eating radial liner any day. Just personal preference you understand.

                      Is it really that different from the 748 or the 777...

                      I can't say since I have zero experience with the Airbus. Actually IMO the 777, great addon that it is, is too automated to be much fun to sim. I like the NGX and MD80. Just enough automaton to make navigation easy but a somewhat mechanically busy cocpit. The short haul mission helps too. And that DC6. Wow! Just personal preference. I guess I'm drawn to the planes IveI'been on. They're even talking about pilotless drone air taxies.Yuk!

                        Try some emergency situations.. ;-) And you'll be happy if you have some automation left as a single PC pilot :P

                            And the hydraulic pump operating those massive flaps - especially at the end when it winds down...

                              It's true that this type of comment "I don't like 'computer' airplanes" normally comes from a guy who tries to prove that he is a professional, actually when the emergencies happen, he messes all up

                                No, just a hobbiest who prefers a certain type of aircraft over others. I don't have emergencies due to my meticulous planning and mature and level headed judgement.😏

                                    Honestly, I'd just be happy if PMDG came up with any completely new aircraft. Instead of all these upgrades to planes we've had for years and years and years. Maybe MSFS2020 has something new for us coming. Hopefully.
