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.

    Boeing 767 any chance?

    Hi guys, I am just wondering here, with the long life of the 767’s with many operators, PMDG never thought in make it? You have a lot of cargos and passengers companies flying the 767 and a lot of variants for this amazing aircraft.

    Do we have any chance to see that amazing plane virtually one day?

    Thanks,
    Thiago Pessanha

    I can only hope so! PMDG, as far as I know, hasn’t announced their next project. I would like to see 767 or A330.

      In the past PMDG said that the Level D was so good, it wasn't worth the development effort.
      Nowadays I'd guess a 787 is the more logical choice since the systems are similar to the 777 and the displays similar to the MAX.

        The 787 would make sense because what you said but also because the 777x is basically a 787 with a 777 body. The 777x avionics should be similar to the MAX and 787. It might be a few years but I do think eventually we will get that bird. The QW 787 would not hold a candle to a PMDG 787. That makes the most logical sense to me.

      Ah a nice classic 767 and 757 from PMDG, that would be a good year if they announced them!!!

        I'll never forget my 1st LDS 767 flight.....it was magical back then...just punching in data to the FMC...it mimicked what I thought was in real life so much so that I dragged my Delta 767 pilot neighbor at the time over and asked him to try it. Pretty much confirmed it minus a few detail pages that we still don't see today. Was way ahead of its time.

        The AA metal paint I did ( worked with Ed Cox and converted his photo textures to the LDS model) blew away all my other paints at avsim at the time in terms of downloads. Over 17,500 downloads of just that one paint! A testament to the popularity of the LDS 767 back in the day (and to Ed's excellent photo textures of the AA 767)...that was 14 years ago.😲

        I'd be 1st in line for a PMDG version as it would still be my favorite plane if I had a good one to fly in flightsim.

          Yeah, it was great in it's day ( when FSX was the latest and greatest ), I kinda miss a good 767 in P3D myself. 🤞

            A 767 would be amazing! It was my very first addon, the Wilco Publishing 767 Pilot In Command for FS2000 I think, later the Lvl D version... I did everything with it, short and long haul, I even had another addon called FS Maintenance or something like that, it simulated wear and expense of aircraft operation. It's sad that Level D has vanished from Flight Sim and the 767 went with them. But I doubt we'll see a PMDG version. For some reason it seems that people don't want to have to think anymore when flying a FS aircraft. Just let PFPX do the flight planning, load the route into the airplane's FMS, automatically of course and let it fly. But in a 767 you would have to be able to read a clock.

              Level D makes one. And it's quite good.

                Agreed. If only they would port it over to P3DV4. I would surrender an eye thooth for a PMDG version.

                      One can never tell how much communication exists between developers, specifically with regard to project exclusivity. LDS stated quite a few years ago in their customer forum that a 767 update was in the works (no other info would be provided- understandable). Similarly they announced a 757 product 10+ years ago, following that eventually with a rather (IMO) snarky response to doubters in the form of a small preview of a section of the cockpit panel. After years of silence the 757 was previewed at FSCon 2017 as a beta product; that will be three years ago this June.

                      Most recently, the LDS Facebook page included some discussions questioning whether LDS would release either or both the 757 and 767 for p3d v4x. The response was "Oh yes we will and that is all I’m going to say". This is directly in line with the "don't ask" posts in their customer forums 10-15 years ago.

                      With development silence now exceeding the design and delivery time for the real-world 75/767 it's fair to assume that both projects are adrift.

                      PMDG-wise, my guess would be that interest in a 767 project would need to exist, then (even more challenging) the availability of a team to pursue such a long project. Both of those would require a solid business case, one we users assume exists but the truth must lie in their hard analysis.

                      I for one would pre-order this minute
