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.

    A word of caution to those of you updating the Content: if you like flying the default Beech airplanes that came with P3D v4.3 and earlier, make sure you back them up before you update. LM was asked to take them down by Beech's new owner and they're gone as of v4.4.

            Unless I read the original post wrong the update was looking like this Wed or Thru. Something must still be broken. Good catch and look forward to the update. Does the not releasing on Fri/Sat still apply? If so than we can look forward to it sometime next week.

              Quick inline update:

              We sat on our hands a bit waiting for some feedback on our research from Lockheed Martin. They confirmed our findings, so we are now certain of the instructions to have users update both the client and content in order to effectively see the PBR treatment on aircraft models is valid.

              I'm not sure what they will do with the information, but having seen their responsiveness I am certain they will handle it with adapted instructions or adapted installation processes pretty quickly.

              We are anticipating pushing the update (finally!) later today, Friday.

                  Looking forward to the update. Does this also resolve the "missing RAAS announcement" problem with the 747 freighters?

I updated content and only step required was to delete the SITUATION in the [USERINTERFACE] section of prepar3d.cfg, to stop P3D from attempting to load my default scenario with the BE-58, and create a new default scenario with the Mooney Bravo (M20M).

                            Updating the content should not impact any installed sceneries or addon aircraft. In fact, all of Orbx is still in scenery.cfg so it's not a matter of using the xml method at all. The content includes the Scaleform feature so the menu screens that open within P3D for GSX or Active Sky will slightly change. Other than the unexpected impact on displaying wing and nacelle shinny leading edges, there is no other impact.
                            No it really shouldn't. However after a content update I see red crosses on several AS airports where objects are missing. I'll have a look at it and if it happenes again after the 4.5 update I'll ask Aerosoft about that. thanks for the heads up that it really should not be like that.

                              why saturday in UK ? now it is Friday there and in EU too

                              but then I doubt, cuz they said "no-way" for Friday release as a new rule

                                Because when Robert/PMDG says later today on a Friday they are talking in their time, US time, so as they are a good few hours behind UK time that will most probably make it Saturday in the UK when the update is pushed.

                                  Seems more then likely Monday now, as Robert mentioned not wanting to release during weekends to give a break. We will just have to fly few more days with sun but no shine lol

                                    They said "We are anticipating pushing the update (finally!) later today, Friday" so unless something has gone wrong I still believe it will release later this evening. I know they mentioned they will no longer release updates on Fridays and Saturdays but RSR wouldn't have said Friday if that was not the case.

                                        Since we're waiting around; not doing anything. A question:
                                        The PBR support requires all new liveries to be released? Or, is it more: polished aluminum liveries really show off the new effect and there needs to be more of them?
                                        Thanks

                                          afaik all liveries support PBR as long as the model does. However if you want to get the most out of it you need the painter to take care of it too.

                                              then we will most likely have to download a new installer from the PMDG website... Let's wait for the official announcement by Robert.

                                                        I would keep flying until they fix the -400 update. It's not installing for a few of us.

                                                            Dan,

                                                            We are not finding anything amiss- and it appears to be humming right along for most.

                                                            Grab the log file and attach it here so we can take a look to see what your hang up is?

                                                            c:/Users/<account name>/AppData/Roaming/PMDG/PMDG Operations Center/Updater/pmdg_updater_log.txt

                                                            To save time, delete the file, then try the update, THEN send us the new file. Will keep us from having to scroll through years of accumulated data...
