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.

    Anyone flying NGX with FsPassengers?

    Hi Guys,

    Since I've been flown the QOSII for quite some time, lately, I'm considering to purchase the NGX and some information are needed from you guys who have been flying the NGX with the FsPassengers.

    Does the NGX is fully compatible with the FsPassenger? (E.g. Do lights and seatbelt sign are recognized by the FSP?)

    Thank you very much!

    Best regards,
    Disathon Wattanadhirach

    for your best interest i would go away without FSPAX. ive heard it being fully compatible but other better programs are coming out that replace fspax almost (PACX, simbit world, etc)

      It‘s compatible with the NGX in terms of the ability to deactivate the CG and fuel/payload-calculation within FSP for the PMDG 737 (and the old 747). Its failure generator is very much based on what the sim provides and an engine might suddenly fail or you might get the sound of medical failures or you get shot over war zones. But the systems are not really affected and the switches you are asking for would have to be changed (added?) by yourself into the 2D panel. I personally wouldn‘t use it anymore, it‘s not going to work with today‘s complex study level addons.

        I don't use FSPassengers, but I'm not sure I would trust it anyhow. Years ago, I read on another forum about somebody who was taxiing in after landing and hit an invisible hole in the scenery. According to FSPassengers, 12 people died when the plane suddenly experienced a descent rate of 6 feet per minute or something along those lines. That would be the equivalent of you dying just by me nudging you.

          Yup, I had things like that too. Not sure about the decent rate but turbulences inflight are absolutely lethal. No need to get bitten by a venomous snake, simply fly with me ;-) no, seriously... it‘s weird. You have to takeoff with flaps or you get financial and in-game legal penalties, good luck with a C172 or even a Piper Cub. Landing lights ob above 10000? Penalty. Strobes on on the taxiway? Penalty. Decending too quickly using FLCH? Penalty. I was frustrated pretty quickly, as I was trying to use it with the PMDG 737 and with smaller GA planes. A2A? Only with Accusim turbed off, because... why did you shut down your engine? Jail!
          It‘s nice if you look for entertaining flights. But not if you look for realism.

            Thank you all folks for the useful and insightful information. I want to inform you all that I already purchased the NGX and the compatible level is in my acceptable range.

            I've agreed with all your comments about the FsPassengers limitations. But for me, it is a challenge. It provides me some goals to fly the sim and see the development of my airline as it grows. Its also gives me the sense of a tycoon game as it has features about cost and pricing including crews and in-flight services in one package. (I also use it for a quite amount of time and have some hard time to leave it, for now.)

            I'm also keeping my eyes on the other related add-ons like PACX, or A Pilot's Life too but, for now, I still happy with it and have some level of consideration to move on to the other add-ons.

            Thank you all again!
