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.

    Avalon & nzaa raas problem

    Hi. I’m having an issue with the raas callout on takeoff at orbx Avalon after I installed orbx Avalon. On takeoff it calls out on taxiway on taxiway. I have run all the alignment scenery stuff, and mkrnwys. I’ve also re installed orbx and pmdg both 747 and 777 as the problem is with both. This also happened to me at nzaa when I put in a 3rd party scenery for nzaa. I’ve removed orbx Avalon and the problem is still there. I now can’t fix it with or without the updated scenery installed. I also have orbx ymml, ybcs, ybbn, and flytampa Sydney and have no issues with any of them. Can anyone please help me as I’m at a loss as how to fix this.

    thanks

      Possibly an AFCAD identification issue. I would ask ORBX or FS2Crew about it. Both RAAS and the airport aren‘t PMDG products. Normally a runway is a runway but I have already seen an airport‘s AFCAD where a taxiway was position direcly below the runway, probably to trick any effects. And have you checked for RAAS being up to date? Which sim?

        I suppose he ignored the monks and called the mists...

        There are people who fly 747s and 777s into Innsbruck RW08

      What’s wrong with flying a 747 into Avalon. I live near Avalon and it is a cargo depo for Melbourne and 747frieghters land there all the time including the aircraft that carry all the formula 1 Frieght and cars for the Melbourne F1 GP

        Sorry I’m using p3d 4.5 I haven’t checked the raas if it is up to date. Can you tell me how I would do that? Is there a way I can check the AFCAD to see if that is the problem? How would I do that? Thanks for your help

          Oh that Avalon.... You didn't give an ICAO so I thought it was KAVX Avalon on Catalina Is in California with a 3000 ft runway, which is also by Orbx. What's the ICAO for your Avalon?

          If you don't know the AFCAD/ADE stuff it's better not to play around with it, it's a development tool for airport data. But I really think it's rather down to RAAS. The developer company is FS2Crew who has a forum on avsim. https://www.fs2crew.com/ is where you can check RAAS.

            The Ozie Avalon is YMAV. It's 10129' long. Runways 18 and 36. Runway 18 ILS is 109.50 @ 177deg. The usual STAR is Jaybi5 trans Apple, Canty or ML (Melbourne VOR). I have a feeling Qantas did some heavy maintainence there, although I could be wrong. Jetstar currently flies their A320's in there.

              Qantas also used it as a training airport for their 707 pilots a couple of generations ago.

              Yes that’s right and also air Asia now fly out of ymav. The airport is owned by Linfox. Australia’s biggest transport company. Ymav is being expanded greatly over the next few years for both Frieght and pax.

                Thanks I’ll check out the raas and update and I’ll also try running makernwys with admin rights. I’m not sure if I did that before or not.
