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.

    Wrong cabin temperature indications.

    Hi.
    It seems the cabin temperature needles are inverted, when selecting imperial it points to 70F(21C) and metric it points to 26C (79F).
    If the needle pointed the other way around, it would be correct, both pointing towards 75F and 24C respectively​
    is this issue known, can we expect a fix?

    This is known but I wouldn't expect a fix until PMDG has worked through the large number of higher priority tasks such as UFT, 777 and 747.

      I sure hope it doesn't take that long.
      I agree it is a small thing but PMDG does fix plenty of small bugs every update, lots of which I didn't even notice.

        This is true, however what is swept up in a revision job depends on the primary focus of the update and the developer(s) assigned to the job.

          Excuse my ignorance, but could you explain what exactly is inverted about the needles?
          The temperature you get in both cases seems to be just fine?

            If you leave the selector vertical, the packs should try and regulate cabin temperature to 24 DEGREES CELSIUS.
            however, when you set imperial in the FMC the cabin temperature indicator stabilizes indicating 70 fahrenheint, which is actually 21 celsius, you then go to the fmc and set metric again, it will indicate 26 C, if the needles were inverted, for example pointed to where 70F (9 o'clock) that would be equivalent of 24 degrees that were actually requested.
            I'm sorry I can't be any clearer than that.
            the needle is pointing when metric is selected to where it should point had imperial been selected and vice-versa.

              Ah, I guess I never even noticed. The 737s air con system is so bad, you can't rely on it anyway. It tells you you've got 26° in the cabin and the cabin crew shouts at you for freezing them and on the next sector it shows 20° and they shout at you for burning them.
              Just ignore whatever's shown there, at some point the cabin crew will come and shout at you.
              Once I had it at a point where it showed 60°C and the cabin crew felt "just fine, could be a tad warmer" - no, that was no sarcasm.

                that is interesting.

                I think most people don't notice, I myself don't care too much about that, I found it by accident, it is a small thing.
                But pmdg is known for being great at the small things and being very detailed, and since I didn't see anyone else mention it, I thought I should let them know.
