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.

      RSR has always said the people want to fly what they see at their airports, and given this 2020 awfulness we're going to see a strong push for the more fuel-efficient aircraft. That means the 777 as the mainstream longhaul, 787 in between and continued usage of the 737NG and a big lean towards the MAX after its recertification. There'll be an uptick in 777 usage in sims as PMDG upgrade to P5D with PBR etc, and the -200ER expansion is another huge lease of life with three new engine variants to explore.

      That is the obvious and sensible future lineup for PMDG. I'm saying that from a purely pragmatic viewpoint, though I must state that I strongly desire both a MAX and 787 from PMDG. They'd be a day-one purchase from me, even though my heart is, and always will be, with the A320.
      If it's definitely the 787 that's going to be one of the secret projects, I'd be over the moon. Having been disappointed with the QW 787, I do think it's about time the Dreamliner deserved better justice.

        To me it sounds like 1 new aircraft and another utility type product in the works. Either way exciting times lay ahead!

            The 787 is part of the scenery... I wish PMDG to model the 797, which will have only one button called "automatic taxi, takeoff, cruise and landing"... So simming will be like watching cockpit videos on Youtube... Most modern aircraft ever...

              So because it's part of the scenery then it can't figure as a hint?

                Let there be no doubt about it...If PMDG do make a 787. it will smash every other one out of the park. I would buy it, and so would anyone esle..

                Its a no brainer for PMDG to develop the 787.

                      I believe it's a connectivity satellite for live TV. It's optional.

                            As per Lufthansa Technik:
                            >Depending on the scope of the installation, up to 100kg weight can be saved
                            >Reduces operational costs due to less weight and drag
                            >Tail-mounted installation has positive effect on center of gravity
                            >Two antennas under one radome

                            and "It is also possible to install a forward looking HD camera as an optional feature."

                          With Biz Cap on, my money is on a B787, given that is where the money is, and where the money wasn't to be found on the PMDG MD-11 developed for FS9 and FSX.

                          If PMDG want's to meet the 3 holer fans half way, of which I am one, maybe they could develop the proposed, but never realised B777 that was meant to have been installed with an extra powerful APU, for take-offs, technically making it a 3 holer of sorts, I know clutching at straws here!

                              All this talk about future projects... I'm just sitting here wondering whether the BBJ's cabin will be something highly detailed we can walk through, or whether it's just something that's viewable from the outside of the plane. If the former, I can't imagine it'd be the whole cabin, as that would murder FPS rates.

                                Thanks for the good news.Customers, including me, have been waiting for such an official announcement.I will follow PMDG everywhere! If you would like to show me the cockpit of the BBJ as well, I would be very happy to do so.It's a thick request, so I'll wait if you ask me to wait.

                                  It's a standard 737 flight deck, so if you've seen the 737 flight deck, you've pretty much already seen it.

                                    The cockpit of BBJ has changed in detail. The origin may be the same, but the highlight is how far the PMDG, which is particular about the details, has been reproduced.

                                        The PW is super-underrated. Pretty much everyone went for RR or GE. Ironically, despite being an RR loyalist (they did eventually order RRs), British Airways were the ones that launched the GE90.

                                          There were old posts from a few years ago on the AVSIM forum that they hinted at the 737 Max and there was also a mention of an interest in doing the C-Series.

                                          There's a gap in the flight sim payware market lacking the A350, A380, 737 Max, A319/320/321 NEO, A330 NEO, a220s, Embraer E-135/145 and the larger E-Jets. Not many professional level models of those out there.

                                          Also, super excited for the -200ER. Love the 777, 747 and NGXu!

                                            The Feelthere ERJ v2 Ejets v3SP2 are somewhere near QW787 qulity, although Ejets are a bit too expensive IMO
                                            I'd rather say there is no good A340 yet.

                                                  Why are you guys so crazy about the different variants, given they're almost identical operationally?

                                                    For one, realism, for two, they don't sound anywhere near close to being the same. I never flew the 777-200LR and only flew the -300ER once. There's really no challenge when it comes to flying the -200LR given the distances it's capable of flying.

                                                        Looking forward to some long haul in the BBJ 🛩
                                                        I agree, just keep the P3D advancements coming and the PMDG 777 is all I need. I'm not flying MS2020 until I get a PMDG ow QW plane.

                                                          I think a PMDG DC8, 727, L1011 would be refreshingly different. A high fidelity classic airliner would be great with a more modern FMS so it's compatible with todays ATC system. I don't see a 787 coming. Have you ever sat in the cockpit of a 787? You can put any display on anything you want, even a touchscreen CDU. PMDG would have to invest serious time and money to do a 787 to typical PMDG fidelity.
                                                          A PMDG A220, E-Jet, CRJ 700/900 would be cool too.
