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.

      Just out of curiosity, where does the Operations Center 2.0 install to? It launched when I installed the NGXu, but now I can't find it to run it again. My Start menu has an entry for PMDG Global Operations Center, but Windows can't find the executable file this is pointing to.

      *Edit* Nevermind, I found it in AppData.

          I guess that's one way to look at it. In any event, he did say that you could buy the NGXu before the end of the year, and get the purchase credit back for it once the NG3 is out, so not really sure you're losing much out of it, but I guess that's up to you.

                    support is at support.precisionmanuals.com

                    That way you can send info you might not want to put in a semi-public forum.

                          Yeah, I kind of had that "Oh crap!" moment too and thought I might have accidently purchased the NGX twice. This is how I understand it:

                          NGXu - for current P3D users (but different than NGX-it's an upgrade).
                          NG3 - for MSFS 2020 (with a limited time free upgrade from NGXu when it's released).

                          Hopefully this is correct . . . or else I made a big boo-boo. (Although the NGXu looks pretty nice. Just hoping to figure out some of the differences from the NGX.)

                            I wouldn't expect the NG3 to be "free" when you get it for MSFS 2020. Odds are it will be priced somewhere above the $99.99 that you will pay for NGXu, so you will just need to pay whatever the difference is at that point (if NG3 is priced at $129.99, then you would just pay $30).

Thank you Robert and the PMDG team for the hard work put into this, it’s very much appreciated!

                              It appears to be the same kit. Unless I’m missing something.

                                I don't know if it would be the same kit. Apparently it is a completely different model, and liveries for the NGX will not work on the NGXu. I would assume (I'm not a livery painter, so I could very well be wrong) that this means a different paint kit is needed.

                                    I downloaded the NGX 737-800/900 and it appears slightly different (I.e. no shadow layer) but it looks very similar. I plan to transfer a previous paint to the available kit to see if it lines up and how it loads with the NGXu version.

                                      Good day gents,
                                      This is my first post here, inspired by the 737, of which I build every day at the Renton factory. Just a question for Robert or any of you who have purchased the brand new NGXu release: Is there a P-8A Poseidon model with this version? If there is no military derivative, I will have to pass on this particular upgrade.

                                      Let it be known, I would gladly pay $150 total, Or even $50 for a standalone military derivatives visual upgrade pack, that would include the C-40, P-8A, and the Wedgetail. The key phrase here being “Visual upgrade”. I would be perfectly satisfied if it was only a 3-D model, with zero difference to the flight and systems modeling.

                                      Sincerely, Preston Martin

                                        Thanks for the moderate earlier stroke RSR. It’lol be purchased and then flown as soon as I land in MIA tomorrow night in the French voting machine from my current real world trip.

                                          Hi everybody! I would still like to fly for the moment the -600 and -700 of the older NGX, so, would there be any conflict if I have the -600, -700, -800 and 900 of the older NGX, with the new NGXu at the same time?

                                            While I certainly believe that you would be satisfied with a purely visual model for military versions, I doubt the good folks at PMDG would be satisfied with that.

                                              Since the NGX and NGXu are completely different aircraft licenses, they will install side-by-side in P3D. At least they appear to do so when I installed the NGXu. I haven't actually had a chance to fly it yet (hopefully in the morning).

                                                I just checked the Ops Center and I did not see it for any of the NGXu liveries so I’d say no. However, someone may paint one in the near future and I imagine it won’t be long before someone paints a C-40 as well.

                                                      Well, of course they're similar! They're both a Boeing 737.
                                                      But I would assume, that since the models are different, you would need a new and updated paintkit to reflect the model changes.

                                                        For those of us who create repaints I was speaking of the layers involved.

                                                      It's not. I asked via support ticket, one will be released in a few days.

                                                        Really disappointed with the disdain you show towards your customers. First you virtually announce a cease in new products for any sim available right now, and then you drop a 99 dollar paid update. Its nice that you will take the 99 dollars off the ngx and max products, but lets not beat around the bush, its not going to be 25 dollars to get the whole thing in MSFS.

                                                        Perhaps this is all an exercise in seeing how fickle the community is by dropping your bombs in the first post and most people being disappointed by it, but now everyone is full of praise.

                                                        The biggest kicker is that you're charging 99 dollars for this update, it seems to be palatable for most that have replied, but you could have treated your customers with a bit of loyalty and respect by not charging so much for it.

                                                          Please stop moaning like a 10 year old. It is not some "minor update" but essentialy a new piece of software. Sure, I also think that 99USD is a lot. If you do not want to buy it, do not buy it. But please stop using these stupid "out of loyality and respect please sell us an update for 20 bucks" phrases.
