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.

        Metro-Washington DC area is like an un-developed country...
        I would like to challenge "The Administrator" on to what his ideas are of an "un developed country'..I am currently flying in Africa. I regard his country as "un-developing". Please keep in mind that we can find those comments very de-littling...we are buying many products from PMDG..Please do not "Un-develelop your country...Other wise you will become Un-developed! We have developers here who are part of your team..

          Peter- Seems you might be reading FAR too much into my comment in search of a reason to take offense. The World Economic Forum uses the term "un-developed country" to describe countries without the means for reliable, stable electrical production and distribution, among other ills. Hence, I chose the term intentionally in a manner of being ironic, since Washington DC is clearly not an undeveloped country. I specifically did not equate the poor quality of electrical distribution to any specific country, or even continent. The point was humor... - RSR

        Shane,

        We didn't do BBJ3 because we don't (yet) have documentation on it. Once we do- we might just slipstream it into the product.

        I saw a picture of 787 in the background of the 737BBJ preview as well as the upcoming 777-200ER. I hope PMDG does not make 787. QW has a descent one already. Instead I have no idea why developers are not focusing on 757/767. Yes its old. But they are classics. Level-D 767 is very good but outdated. I hope there is a 757/767 in production somewhere down the line With the quality that PMDG makes, 767/757 would be amazing in their hands.

          But the QW 787 is still broken and incomplete, and PMDG making a 787 would be a million times better. I don't want to be stuck with a subpar 787 that's still got missing features and bugs that are putting me off flying it.

            Ngl, but PMDG doing a 787 will be superfluous and just now QW has already made it's first previews available for FS2020 thus scuppering any other competing products chances.

            Not really. There's come competing products out there that PMDG already made versions of, but of course, nothing can compare to the quality and detail of PMDG.

            Not sure how their previews for FS2020 is "scuppering any other competing products chances." I flew the 787 a few weeks ago, and I'm not exactly a huge fan of it. EFB isn't even fully simulated. Visually, it looks great, but systems wise, it's not a full-systems simulation.

          I am not sure but QW 787 for me is great for flying. Yes its not full on simulated but its good enough. However we do not have 757/767. Captainsim is complete (insert swear word) and overpriced and terrible on performance and Level D is not bringing their 767 up to date sadly

              That’s exactly what doesn’t make it good enough in my opinion.

                  It will never be a fully systemed plane either. That isn't QWs market. Its a casual fly about with a few things here and there. But it's a 787. They charge you the price they do and it clearly shows. If PMDG knocked out a 787. The pricing would be completely different for the exact reason of it being a fully simulated 787

                    Exactly pay peanuts get monkeys I do hope pmdg brings this bird out at least it would fly properly and fly like it should would prefer to pay pmdg prices and get something that I know it will be simulated to the closest the sim allows not to mention they take months to do updates and still after a few years there are loads of things still need fixing from day one I could make a long list

                      I wouldn't even so fars to say it's a "pay peanuts get monkeys" kinda product. Their 787 is really nice and i've had a few hour out of it, however if you're someone who's in the PMDG,FSLABS or even LH maddog products. It'll come quite a shock...i would agree on the fact they are rather slow on the update side. But it is what it is, I wouldn't reject a fully simulated 787 to what we have todays standards though

                              remember where you are, this is the pmdg forums! we dont want "good enough" we want the best.

                              if i'm not mistaken the qw 787 doesn't even have vnav? that is utterly unacceptable. i wouldn't fly it if i got it for free.

                                      I agree. If PMDG did the 787, I would definitely get it. I flew the other 787 a few weeks ago, and I don't think I'll be flying it again.

                                                Thank you so much for the incredible work put into this! Another great one to enjoy before getting the 777 update. Great job PMDG, as always!

                                                  Two issues:

                                                  787 - The QW version depends on your level of expectations. If you like simplified aircraft that you can pretty much jump in and fly the the QW 787 is fine. However, if you’re looking for something with more depth and higher quality then you will be disappointed. I own a copy of the QW787 and it’s OK but each time I fly it I don’t feel much like using it again. I agree a PMDG 787 would be very nice and it would be great to see a completely new product from PMDG. I just hope whatever mystery craft RSR is referring to will be available in P3D: MSFS has a ways to go.

                                                  And I am completely lost with regards to the change-log for the NGXu: is it available and if so where?

                                                    It is not at the present time.
