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 777-/9X for 2021?

    As when I'm writing this, the Boeing 777-9X Prototype is getting ready for it's first flight. In a year or so, could this be a possibility?

    On a side note great advertising by Boeing on this live feed. You've had kc46, 789s, a 737max, a dream lifter and a 763 fedex, a 773 all takeoff and land on stream. Their PR is doing their job well

        I honestly would love a 777-9x even though it would be a big difference between the old and new 777x given the cockpit is basically new. But the 777-9 is sexyyyyy

          Basically a MAX and 78 combined

        Yes, a PMDG 777-9X would be a great aircraft. But I doubt that this would be that fast, I think 2022/3 would be more realistic as a complete new development... furthermore they need to adapt the 747 and current 777 to the new FS2020.

          vadriver, for you there is no need, but probably 90% of the community still wants to enjoy the amazing aircrafts that made the history of Boeing and PMDG. Not having them in the new sim would mean to ignore all the past of PMDG and would also be extremely disappointing for a lot of customers as they're previewing future releases of their major products for FS2020. It will still take a lot of time to make an accurate (fully in PMDG style) 777-9 from scratch.

          Yes indeed, especially the 747(-8) series is far away from being outdated, so I think it should make its way into FS2020 (perhabs as an enhanced version).

          Don't forget the fact they can't just go to Boeing and use a 77X. It wouldn't have entered service in your timeline and you expect PMDG to recreate it? I'd say 2024-25 minimum to see something like that personally.

        If they were to do it, it probably won't be for years. Unless PMDG has access to the data already.

          Someone really has to break down for me why Boeing thinks/thought this is an airframe that is lacking on the market.
          I don't get it. The 78 line is more than enough to replace the 77 in it's entirety.

            15% more passengers in a 77-9 compared to a 78-10

          Is the 777-9 the longest commercial plane ever? ~252 ft

            If Boeing releases 777-10x it will be over 80m long...
            But 777x could come into existence in 2024/2025 or later.
            Boeing isn't keen on giving data so easily.
            P.S
            I would like to see 787-8/9/10 or 757-200/300🤗 as the next project...

              a PMDG 757 or 767 would really be great, but I personally doubt it will come.

            #10
            Yes the 767, a beautiful aircraft. I flew the 767 back in the days when it was developed by Level-D, sadly Level-D was unable to keep pace with the technology

              I remember when they were the only game in town. The LD767 was a game changer at the time and was the inspiration to get me into sim aviation.

                This would be amazing - ONLY if they actually simulated the new flight deck. Wouldn't be worth it if it was just the exterior 3d model with the 772 cockpit.

                  Stefan, you really didn't need to quote PMDG's Rule 1, especially not in RED -- a friendly reminder would have sufficed. Technically you are right, but on a wild guess, I suspect that Blakewilliams22 name is "Blake Williams."

                  As a reminder, here is PMDG's Rule 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.
