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.

    Strange Bug?

    When I setup a flight and load the Simbrief plan, the FMC starts by loading an old flightplan from when I first flew the 737 several years ago.

    To get rid of it, I have to replace the origin and destination by over-writing the 4 letter code with the new ones.

    Looking for a solution.

    P3D? Exactly what are you doing to load the .rte file? Generally, one enters ORIG DEST and clicks on request. If more than one is available then you get a list to select from.

      What do you mean PD3? I am confused. I am not loading a .rte file.

      I am referring to the PMDG 737-700

        P3D is a simulator by Lockheed-Martin. I think Dan is a little befuddled because you mentioned the FMC pulled up a flight plan from when you first flew the 737 a few years ago, but the 737 for Microsoft Flight Simulator was only released in May, which definitely wasn't a few years ago.

          I'm wondering if the OP has the flux capacitor installed on his 737?

              As Dan asked above, do you enter the ORIG and DEST before you request the flight plan? Tell us exactly what you do when you "load the Simbrief plan."

                Are you loading a previously saved panel file when you begin the session, that is, do you have a STARTUP STATE on the PMDG SETUP menu page? This will populate the FMC with whatever is in that startup state.

                    Yes I have the STARTUP STATE set to TAXI.

                    I still get the same Origin (CYVR) and Destination (KSEA) from that old plan.

                    Claus Jensen
                    Delete that startup state entry. Keep it blank unless you have specific need for it. Basically what that does is load the FMC for you and you clearly do not want that.

                      Hej Claus.

                      Skulle du blot indtaste indtaste data I rte, for at nulstille din fmc for gamle data fra tidligere flyplan.

                      Med venlig hilsen
