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.

    PMDG 747 for MSFS

    Haven't heard anything (maybe I've missed it) but I certainly hope PMDG is working on a 747 version for MSFS. I've been holding off migrating to MSFS until the 747 is announced and released. Any news?

    Thanks very much,

    The next two as announced by PMDG is the 777 then the 747. No time estimate yet.

      Thanks Dan! I'm aware that it's a heavy lift moving a product from a 32 bit platform to a 64 bit platform. As long as I know the 747 is in the pipeline I'll wait on MSFS and continue to fly the 747 in FSX.

      Cheers,

        They have already done that going from P3v3 to v4. The challenge is to create software for a platform that lacks adequate debugging tools, but now that the DC-6 and B737 families are complete (except for MAX) they seem to have figured things out.

          I suspect that the process of getting the 777 into MSFS will go more quickly than the 737 did, and then the 747 will go a bit more quickly than the 777 takes.

              Was there a 744 without winglets? I don't think I have ever seen one. All of PMDG's previous 744s have had winglets, I believe.

              Yep, the 744D. Only used by Japanese airlines as far as I’m aware. The current 744 has them. Who knows whether they’ll be done this time around.

              The 400D and 400LCF. That being said they can remove them if damaged and differ the item.

            So long as we get the -400 (or earlier), I don't care if its a sub-variant with or without winglets. I just want the 747, and I want one without it being the -8. You know, like they did for the FSX.

            I'm with the OP. Imma not going to FS 2020/MSFS until PMDG makes a 747 for it. I, too, will remain on FSX until then. (Even if the QotS and FSX sometimes crash (computer-speaking, not aviation-speaking)

                    I too have been waiting for this since the MSFS Alpha days and hope that now at age 75, it arrives in time for me to have the nouse to fly it.. But in the meantime I have a really very good 747-400 running with MSFS flawlessly, including being able to fly on VATSIM. But while we wait for PMDG to give us that......... .
                    I first encountered Precision Manuals when they wrote the initial manuals for the Aerowinx PS 1.
                    PS1 is now PSX and that's my choice for a 747-400. And now there are 2/3 options to link PSX to MSFS. which you can find in the Aerowinx forum.
                    PSX is not cheap at around $500 and a bit extra if you want the NG FMC. And it helps to have 2 or 3 screens to run the setup (but is not obsoletely necessary). The precision and reality of PSX is unmatched for a desktop simulation of the 747-400.
                    Waiting for you PMDG......... .
                    Many Thanks,
