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.

    I doubt it. I think they (PMDG) have their hands full for the next few years;

          The DC10? Yeah right. The Convair 880 and 990 addon are ahead in the queue. They are working on a virtual flight engineer for it which will be used later on the DC10, L1011, and 727.

            What about the virtual navigator and the virtual radio operator? We want those as well for our B-17.

            Seriously though...I think that for now the focus point for PMDG is MSFS, GFO, and the "secret project". After that maybe an adding to the fleet could be reasonable...who knows 🙂

              You misspelled “DC-3.”

                The DC-3? Doesn't it climb, cruise, and descend at the same airspeed?

                  Nah, that’s the Catalina - which, come to think of it, would also be a nice project for the Classics line...

                  You can try that in the DC-3 but it’ll harm you - as I’m sure RSR can confirm.

                  Imagine the future Classics forum where we can argue about this stuff...

                  CBT_Phoenix - now that I think more about it, a B-17 would be nice. But I’d want it to be a civilianized or at least peacetime model. Lots of possible missions - SAR, meteorology, aerial survey, firefighting, cargo, VIP transport. I always thought that other developers missed a beat by not extending their B-17 lines to include those.

                    Think about the historical VA events that could be possible, and the learning opportunities. People nowadays are too "comfy" by just pressing a few switches and relying on their FMCs. A bit of manual flying and traditional aircraft handling would really teach a lot. After all...that's where we all start in flight training, no FMC, no AP, analog cockpit, on a poorly performing, almost-broken, older-than-grandad aircraft 😁

                      I'm old enough to remember Microsoft Flight Simulator without a GPS because when I started (1986), commercial GPS wasn't yet available. So, VORs and airways and intersections, all the time. I miss it. I did the training sequence with DC-3 Airways - haven't kept up with them but it was great to get back to that. Hence my continual lobbying. I'm happiest with an airplane that groans and rattles and doesn't fly itself.

                      That's pretty much my flight training lol. Just in a PA28...
                      I think that a combination of both is essential to keep all the pilot's skills up to date

                    Seriously just give me DC6 installer for version five then they can do whatever they want.

                      I'm not on v5, but if you substitute MSFS, I'm with you on that.

                    Well, in real life, everything is GPS now. Navaids are going away. Even on the 777, VOR/DME updating is turned off.
                    The environment we operate in is also letting go, so it's a people issue as well. I personally wouldn't dare fly in a busy airspace without GPS unless I was very familiar. Not for safety reasons, but to protect my ATP and livelihood. It's a huge reduction in workload knowing where you are in relation to airspace, and altitude restrictions. Think flying along South Beach in Miami, and going up the coast North bound. Either constantly looking at VFR sectionals, or are intimately familiar. This is another reason I fly IFR when possible.
                    In less busy areas of the country where there aren't constant airspace changes, is a different story.
