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.

    That's the biggest thing I've been wondering about FS2020 on Xbox. Given that they're usually locked down to prevent scripted cheats being used to gain an unfair advantage in multiplayer games such as Call of Duty, it's going to be very interesting to see how developers can get third party addons running in the Xbox version without dumbing down, since external scripts and DLLs are often required to drive most of the systems in complex addons like the PMDG planes.

    I second this question. No need for a 4-page post. A quick update would be greatly appreciated now that the sim & SDK are out, there were lots of unknowns at that time.

    I assume the base package will include only 737-800/900. The rest may be released as an expansion package.

    Hi and thank you for the add.

    As a noob to the world of aircraft simulation; a question regarding the production of your 737 NG (third generation) for MSFS, I assume you are talking about the release of a package? A quick Wikipedia search reveals the;

    737-600
    The 737-600, the smallest model of the Next-Generation, was launched by Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) in March 1995 with the first aircraft delivered in September 1998.[64] A total of 69 aircraft without Winglets have been produced with the last one delivered to WestJet in 2006.[1] The 737-600 replaced the 737-500 and is similar to the Airbus A318.

    737-700
    The 737-700, the first variant of the Next-Generation, was launched in November 1993 with an order of 63 aircraft. The -700 seats 126 passengers in a two-class or 149 passengers in a one-class layout.The launch customer Southwest Airlines took the first delivery in December 1997.[65] The 737-700 replaced the 737-300 and competes with the Airbus A319.

    737-800
    The Boeing 737-800 was a stretched version of the 737-700 launched on September 5, 1994. The -800 seats 162 passengers in a two-class or 189 passengers in a high-density, one-class layout. Launch customer Hapag-Lloyd Flug (now TUIfly) received the first one in April 1998.[68] The -800 replaced directly the -400 and aging 727-200 of US airlines. It filled also the gap left by Boeing's decision to discontinue the MD-80 and MD-90 aircraft, following Boeing's merger with McDonnell Douglas. The 737-800 is the most widely used narrowbody aircraft and competes primarily with the Airbus A320.

    737-900
    The 737-900 was launched in 1997. It retains the MTOW, fuel capacity, trading range for payload and also the exit configuration of the −800, limiting its seat capacity to approximately 177 in a two class and 189 in a high-density, one class layout. The launch customer Alaska Airlines received the delivery on May 15, 2001.

    Also the Extended Range varients;

    737-700ER
    Launched on January 31, 2006 and featured the fuselage of the 737-700 and the wings and landing gear of the 737-800. A 737-700ER can typically accommodate 126 passengers in two classes with a range similar to the Airbus A319LR.

    The 737-900ER
    This is the newest and largest variant of the 737NG generation. An additional pair of exit doors and a flat rear pressure bulkhead increased its seating capacity to 180 passengers in a two-class and up to 220 passengers in a one-class configuration.[70] The -900ER was introduced to meet the range and passenger capacity of the discontinued 757-200 and to directly compete with the Airbus A321.

    If the above is your intended release the simply wow. Take my money now...

    Thank you for the update. looking forward to the final product -- for my preference, it will be the 739 and the DC3. if there is a chance to be part of the alpha test, please add me to your roster, including the survey we should fill out after each flight for a full report.

    Thank you,

    I am happy to pay any price for such high quality products!
    And I think PMDG is already giving us a discount on their products when I look at the price-performance ratio.

    Looking forward to this, and worth every penny IMHO.

    Hopefully not too long to wait now for the next NG3 product update.

    Don't forget development costs and licensing costs. Running the website isn't free, and the licensing with Boeing definitely isn't free.

    Abusive price? WTH does that mean anyhow? Prices are fixed, ideally, by the market. This means that PMDG should charge whatever price we are willing to pay for it. That could be 5 dollars or 500 dollars, I don't know. However, no matter where the price is set, it can NEVER be abusive UNLESS somehow a person is forced to buy it. That not being the case here, there can NOT be a price that could sanely considered abusive. Wow...just wow.

    Not completely wrong, but to better word it, it would be more like after Boeing gives them clearance to do so.

    PMDG beta testing is always closed, so that’s a task for the 737 beta team. Think the MAX only will be done after it’s been operating IRL for some time.

    I know that iFly737 offer a cockpit builders version (tho not for MSFS2020 yet). If pmdg were able to offer the same, it would be spectacular and a great addition to their hangar. In any case, these visuals are really really impressive. Thanks pmdg - keep up the excellent work

    Totally agree with you. Right now I am really enjoying the Beechcraft Baron, and Adobo seems to be getting better at some things, but I will not do a passenger jet until PMDG. I'm just spoiled.

    Those preview pictures look fantastic. I love PMDG's products and just knowing they are on the way is exciting news. I look forward to the PMDG 737 for MFS, but the PMDG 747 is hands down my favorite and add-on aircraft in ANY flight simulator. I never got a chance to try the 747-8 expansion but I will gladly purchase it once available in the new MFS.

    My first ever experience with a complex add-on aircraft was the PMDG 777 for FSX and since then, the PMDG brand has earned my absolute respect and admiration.

    To the team at PMDG, stay safe and keep up the amazing work you do. Like many others, I look forward to what magic you bring to this new and exciting flight simulator.

    Regards
    Anthony

    The VFR flying with smaller aircraft in MSFS is outstanding for default aircraft. By the time I am ready for something bigger and more complex, it is good to know PMDG will be there with (at least) a 737. And MSFS will have helicopters, seasons and VR with free updates by the end of the year. Welcome to the next-gen sim we've all dreamed of for decades.
