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.

    Will the 737NGX have a PBR update?

    I was reading a post on another flight sim group that PMDG aren't going to push out anymore updates for the 737NGX, especially a PBR update for the NGX. Because its "too old", could this be true?

    Any updates adding features to the NGX are unlikely if not out of question with the NG3 coming Soon™.

      Thats a bummer since the only PMDG aircraft I own is the 737NGX. But I guess its the right thing to do

      Soon? It has not even reached beta. I would be surprised if it took less than 18 Months until it is released.

        Alright so, I'm trying to add my name and it keeps telling me that i have too many lines, I'm trying to put in: "Karan Singh" and a screenshot of a plane

      Okay so heres the dealio to me. Release a 737ngx update for pbr just that its a solid plane. Release the ng3 which is most likely nit gonna be the max varient because i cant see PMDG calling the MAX the NG3 since its not even part of the of NG series of the 737. Now however if its the MAX variant then PMDG will kinda have to be forced to release a PBR update for the NGX because people will ask more for PBR if the NG3 is a MAX, just like how everyone wants a 777-200ER for some weird reason now

        It's possible that NG3 will contain the -800/900 with and without split scimitar, and the max 8 and 9. Hard to say.

                I wouldn't say out of nowhere. A lot of people have been wanting it for a while, more or less since the release of the 777. For me personally, the lack of a -200ER was what stopped me from buying the 777 in the first place.

                  Swaluver88 Upon PMDG 777 release the -300ER and -200LR were outnumbered by an order of magnitude by the "classic" -200ER, even now there are 400+ -200s vs 60ish -200LRs. As such there has always been demand and calls for the -200ER, even before the PMDG 777 was released.

                  I expect the NG3 will encompass both the NG and MAX lines, albeit some as expansions. Putting PBR on the current NGX would be a disincentive for existing owners to upgrade.

                                  There is - it's just not obvious like it should be (I mean that seriously - I don't like how it's somewhat hidden).

                                      Yeah. Unfortunately it took me a good deal longer than it probably should have to figure out how to edit my signature.

                                        I heard there are very few 737 max simulators out there and pilots going from the 737-800 to a max don’t need sim time only iPad time. What kind of training is needed to make the jump.? I hope the PMDG releases the max and it comes out with EFB and MCAS latest update. I love those huge displays. I wonder if airlines ever considered a pmdg based sim rather that classroom or tablet training.

                                          Transition from NG to MAX can be done from one day to about a week depending on the airline it's self.
                                          Hopefully we could see MAX-10(although it we'll see light in 2020).I hope that -10 wouldn't become a new 777-200ER for PMDG.

                                                    Strongly suggest you grab TomatoShade (freeware), then search the web for freeware TomatoShade reflection profiles. Tremendous ones are out for PMDG NGX and 777 (and other aircraft add-ons).

                                                    The NGX is the only thing I fly (although I own many others) With the freeware addons just described its reborn! Only missing the SSW. P3Dv4 has been game changing, but in the last 30 days since making the suggested switch I feel like I'm already running v5. The lighting changes based on surroundings in the VC are almost as breathtaking.

                                                    My profile pic is a very small tease (see nacelle)...its undoctored photo...

                                                    Until the NG3 is released...

                                                    Here is a pic of the older tomatoshade profile below 653.png
