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.

    [12NOV19] NGXu Update & Paintkit Pending

    Captains,

    Just a quick note with a bit of information on what promises to be a busy week.

    We are currently planning to issue two updates to PMDG 737NGXuthis week. The first will arrive either either late Tuesday, or mid-day Wednesday, depending upon a few factors that won't settle in until tomorrow. A second build will drop either late in the day on Friday, or mid-Day on Saturday. (All times US EST)

    These two updates are normal post-release updates designed to clean up some of the items that have appeared in the initial release period. I'm not going to detail what will be included in these updates in advance, but we will publish the change list for each update once it is completed. (Please... prove to us that you read this announcement by NOT asking "did you fix X?" We won't answer... )

    To give you something to look forward to, here are a couple of topics that are being addressed for certain:

    One area I can tell you about is that we have added a nifty little menu in the FMS/OPTIONS menus that will allow users to play around with some of the artificial feel settings related to nosewheel steering. I added this because it seems that your experience with our nosehweel steering physics depends quite strongly on your hardware and it's sensitivity. To address this, we have coded in a couple of different methods to control the input/output and you can choose between them. One method allows you to add a nullzone to your controller, but leaves everything else as is. Another method provides a bezier curve against which the control is based. This makes it feel a bit less abrupt on most hardware. We also have a couple of options which base off of the other modes, but which reduce the designed rate-of-change of the nosewheel steering by about 70%. While this does reduce responsiveness, it seems to make things a bit less abrupt feeling on "common" hardware.

    We have a whole bunch more coming, as well- but again- publish
    We are planning to release the PaintKit publicly on Tuesday for certain. We wanted to give a couple of the well experienced painters that we work with an opportunity to test drive the paintkit and report back to us that it was fit for purpose.

    Okay- more work to do. I'll be back with you in a few hours!

                        Hopefully a TUI paint is included, also, would there be a chance we could chnage the winglets on the fly via the fmc? like some other options we can do already

                              I think since they are different models that is a no. I'm sure the reasoning for this is the different winglets have different aerodynamic properties.

                                Agree with Tbarker1989 It is true that there might have some aerodynamic properties,
                                Why on earth you want to change winglets on the fly ?

                                  well you can change things like satcom on the fly which i'm assuming it effects the aerodynamics yet it's possbile

                                    I feel like people never gave the steering really a chance and rushed straight to conclusions about it. I flown about 25+ hours since the release and got used to the steering and what's needed to steer and get comfortable with it.

                                    Indeed the plane needs "post update releases" as well as all other products that are initially released

                                    JOB WELL DONE PMDG! NOW ONTO -700, MAX AND GFO! LETS GO!

                                      I am really loving taking the 900ER around my virtual world. I have seen some on Avsim complain about the sounds but I must say the engine and cockpit sounds IMO are really really good. I love the low end engine sounds especially.

                                        I think it's more about the multiple hardware configurations people use. I love the new ground steering but on my 3D Attack Pro, the tiller response is very sensitive. Having the ability to fine tune this in the next update, will be welcome.

                                        Just like the B747, Got to love that "grinding" sound around 40% N1, in the decent.

                                            Would it be possible to the ground service vehicle file layered with the kit as well? So we can do airline specific vehicles. Thanks

                                              Hi Weston, I suspect that this will not be part of an aircraft paint kit; rather, they have signaled that they will be providing something specifically for ground service vehicles that are used by the NGXu, QOTSII and eventually the 777. No time frame on this.
