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.

    The only ground service I found available is the Jetway, I miss others as baggage, catering, power, fuel, which I cannot found available.
    How can I enable them ?

      The default MFSF or the free addon are not working at this time. Dont use for a while.

      Also the PMDG is not well implemented right now. Wait for the Fsdreamteam GSX in a few months.

        Play with it because some things cannot be enabled after others. For example, PAX cars cannot be released before the S1 stairs.

            I referred to the ground services provided by MSFS such as Power unit, baggage, catering, and fuel truck, which work with other airliners, but are missing now at the B737.

              i'm pretty sure those don't work with this because PMDG has created all of their own versions. accessible on the FMS

                they are not missing. First read the Manuel it goes into depth of everything.

                second, all above mentioned services are located on the FMC main menu. You can select GPU, baggage, set chocks etc.. dozens of options.

                  Thanks, I tried some of them, but still prefer the default MSFS baggage, catering and fuel truck ground services, they seem more realistic.

                    Maybe check this text file under [Services] and see if they are turned off?
                    • Go to folder Community\pmdg-aircraft-737\SimObjects\Airplanes\PMDG 737-700(or PMDG 737-700BBJ/PMDG 737-700BDSF)
                    • open in text editor (i use free Notepad++) aircraft.cfg file.

                      You are right, if you turn on (1 for 0) baggage, fuel, and catering at the [Services] of aircraft.cfg file, they reappear at the ATC menu options. and can be called, but they coexist with the pdmg services unless you order them to release
                      Also they contact at incorrect points at the aircraft, which is a pity, as they are inusuable that way. Perhaps there is a way to correct that, but I dont know how.

                          jetways are not all working with default MSFS airfields. I just use the ATC option in the sim to connect the jetway.

                          make sure you select a tug in the MDU section and make sure your chocks are released, and parking break is not set. The PMDG tug is working no problem for me.
