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.

    Another case of bad behaviour wind x PMDG

    Hey there, good evening.

    I'm a PMDG frequent user, I fly almost everyday more than a flight. Since the last christmas update, the aircraft behaviour against the wind seemed to be fixed. But today I've made 3 flights with the B737-800 BBJ2: RKSS-RJTT-RPLL-YPDN.

    The first flight went perfectly, 100% without any problem. But in the last two the following behaviour of the video occurred: the aircraft struggling to maintain its path with few wind intensity during final approach (ILS).

    Notes:
    1- What I noticed was during landing at RPLL and YPDN
    2- Both situations occurred after established on ILS approach
    3- The METAR at YPDN was showing wind 21006KT 160V290, so I proceed to runway 29. Initial approach I was getting tailwind component, but on final approach it switched to headwind (after I stopped recording). But this behavior of the video is completely unrealistic for any type of winds.

    Here it goes:

    video, sharing, camera phone, video phone, free, upload


    Thanks in advance!

    Yeah I don't think this has anything to do with the wind, at least the wind that is being reported on your ND at 5-10 kts, only a few of which are going to be crosswind. I think it's an AP/ILS issue. Next time switch off the AP and hand fly and see what happens.

      Just out of interest, do you use FSRealistic?

        Definitely looks like the low level turbulence option from FSRealistic. It's a nice idea, but due to FS limitations causes great problems with autopilots. Turn it off and the issue should be gone.

          If you use FS Realistic the reason may be on low altitude turbulence settings. I have set this to between 0 - 5.

              Looks like what happens when you have low level turbulence selected in FSrealistic.

                FSrealistic Low Level Turbulence. Turn it OFF. If you want to turn it on, set it to 0, which is off anyhow, so Turn It Off.

                  Did anybody mention it was FSrealistic Low Level Turbulence yet? I think you might want to turn it OFF.

                    Time to do a Youtube short Emi with the 737 inverted as the Captain screams 'Turn it off, TURN IT OFF!' πŸ˜‚β€‹

                      Yeah, that was the cause of it. I already had disabled it, I don't know why it came back on. Thanks a lot!

                        It was funny. I did not know that they had included and activated that "feature" in an FSrealistic update. So I updated and took off from KMIA in the Maddog. On wheels up I thought I was having a stroke. Got it under control and on auto pilot and then on approach I got the roll yips again and spent about two hours trying to figure it out. Good news it was not a stroke.
