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.

    You're not alone with this.. PMDG have never officially denied it but it's presumed to be highly unlikely..

      i thought they did.... If i am not mistaken they said they dont plan on making planes which are already available from others. I could be wrong as i am not able to find their post, but maybe others can confirm that. Its the reason they dont make the 787 as QW has one, the 767 is available from CS as is the 757, TFDI is doing the MD11, and so on and so forth

        Pretty sure PMDG's decision not to do the MD-11 was already made even before TFDI announced their MD-11.

          This rationale was pointed out as being a ‘conspiracy theory’ by one of the moderators - the fact that this developer has developed that plane, then it must mean that PMDG can’t develop one as well. He declined that that is the logic - and it shouldn’t be like that in my opinion, that is when competition arises. I can find the post I think you’re looking for, if you want?

            You're certainly not alone in this wish. It's a shame that the venerable 75/76 will most likely never be modeled by a PMDG (or equivalent) caliber simulation. But, to be honest, who here doesn't want every Boeing model simulated by PMDG? The problem is the scale of PMDG's operation doesn't seem to permit the rapid proliferation of high quality products. Which suggests we ought to be grateful for the pleasures derived from PMDG's focus on quality rather than quantity.

                Seeing they went super old school with the DC 6, what I would love to see them do and surprise us with is a really good Boeing 727, seeing that CS may not be reworking theirs to be compatible with P3DV5 ETC.

                But isn't LevelD releasing the 757 any day now? Oh wait we are in 2020 not 2010! Time flies and the 757 doesn't

                  I don‘t think that Level-D still exists. I know there have been some mysterious facebook posts but I can write anything on the internet. BTW I currently create a study level 707 better than PMDG

                There's a few aircraft I'd like to see from the Boeing stable (72, 75, 76) and if you want to be tenuous, a C17...

                    I agree, I would love to see a B727...my favorite legacy airliner. A beauty!

                      757 and 767 is dead in any other platform except for older flight sim so this; is the time for PMDG making this amazing aircrafts!

                          It's a topic that comes up a lot, *sigh* but I understand everyone wants their favorite aircraft to fly. I have many great memories flying Level-D 767, but having been spoiled by the depth of PMDG's products I couldn't go back to any other product. Seeing how many people here miss their beloved MD-11 I wish I had been "onto" that and had the opportunity to enjoy it when it was in its prime. Mark Trainer

                            Mark, the MD-11 was my first beta and the reason I moved from FS9 to FSX (LOL has it been that long ago?) and the reason I learned how to operate within the VC Cockpit. There were plenty of differences between it and the Boeings in how the automatic flight systems and FMS worked to make it really interesting.

                            You could pay for the seed funding to get it started... ;-)

                            If the 757 Plus comes to fruition (instead of the oft mooted 797/NMA), it might be on the cards again. But after the 727-200 and Caravelle...

                            We have to understand the various niches of the market, for example, CS and QW B757 are interesting products targeting a certain segment of different clients (as mentioned at their forums) while PMDG B757 will be something else for sure, no direct competition here.

                            Regarding LD B767 product that is comparable with PMDG in a way, it's not available of P3D V4.X

                            The MD-11, I still think that it was a mistake that PMDG did not develop for P3D, the reason is, with P3D 64b environment it's like a new experience and not similar to that of FSX, meaning there will be whole new customers + older ones purchasing the product with much higher numbers than of FSX.

                            So I agree with the post above, we need to see in our lifetime B757, 767 and MD-11 from PMDG ( I did not mention 707,717,727 and 787 yet)

                              PMDG can't be expected to make a version of every Boeing. Not if you want them all to the same high quality and some time this century. 😏

                              TFDi have made an excellent study level 717 and have announced an MD11. PMDG certainly won't need to duplicate those. I'm sure they will make a 787 though, eventually.

                            Very good 757 and 767 sims available for X-Plane 11 which is very much alive.

                                There is lot of data and logics in the design of an aircraft and I think that knowing PMDG attention to details in making a software airplanes look like the real thing. You need to gather a lot of resources to do so, and that's why I think it is hard for them to collect all of that info to make these amazing planes; perhaps, they don't have enough data for these two old but moderns airfoils of the 70's like for instance FCOM and other manuals. I wish they, for all aviation professionals and simmers; make these aircrafts it would be awesome! Maybe they do have enough information to do it it just not the time and time will tell....

                                  We as customers have no idea of what‘s on the to-do-list except the closer future which has been announced. Do there is a lot of room for speculation, hope and wishes I personally still hope for a (yeah it‘s me again 😂) updated Jetstream and a B727, as I know that RSR would totally agree with me from a heart POV

                                    Yes you do. RSR has stated this many times and it's no secret:

                                    737NGXu update and V5
                                    777 Update and v5
                                    DC-6 update and v5
                                    NGXu,777 and, DC-6 incorporate into GFO

                                    and repeat the above for MSFS 2020

                                      Isn’t the NGXu incorporated into GFO already? I’ve seen it being flown on the website many times at least - but perhaps it’s not fully incorporated, or?

                                              757 is my all-time favorite airliner, followed closely with its brother the 767

                                                737NGXu update and V5
                                                777 Update and v5
                                                DC-6 update and v5
                                                NGXu,777 and, DC-6 incorporate into GFO

                                                and repeat the above for MSFS 2020
                                                That‘s the „closer future“

                                                  Yes, but PMDG have never mentioned plans beyond the "closer future" since the time they announced they planned to produce a family of Airbus products. I prefer it that way as it avoids disappointment
