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.

        From a couple topics below yours:

        https://forum.pmdg.com/forum/main-fo...-for-fsx-steam

        You may need to remap it to the correct PMDG folder. I believe navigraph made some sort of change to their program and it caused the program to send the nav data to another folder.

          Sometimes the “navdata out of date” hangs around even if you have updated it and can be as simple as just clearing it from your cdu, also this has been answered here before.

            Exactly. I think Kyle has already addressed this somewhere in the forum. Navigraph have remapped their path to PMDG. You must delete you existing path and then perform a rescan in Navigraph.

              Delete existing path to PMDG in Navigraph and then perform a re-scan. It will automatically apply the new path. Regards.

                Additionally, a few people have kind of alluded to it, but I'll add detail:

                If you want to fly at night, and set your sim's time to "night" for that location (say you're at Heathrow, so it's 0000Z). The clock will, of course, display 0000Z in the plane, because the sim time is 0000Z, regardless of your computer's clock time. I'm sure to most, this makes sense.

                ...which somewhat baffles me because the concept usually ends there with people until someone points it out:
                Logically, if the plane is following the sim clock instead of the computer's clock, then it will also follow the sim calendar over the computer's calendar. As such, if the Nav Data effective date is 4/1/2019 to 4/30/2019, and your sim date is 9/1/2017, then your nav data will display as "out of date" because 9/1/2017 is not between 4/1/2019 and 4/30/2019.

                    American date conventions are so confusing... it took me three attempts to understand why/how there could ever be thirty months.

                    Helpful information though as I’ve had this problem before.

                              Granted that it is less than ideal for people to use different date conventions in different places...if the context was not obvious to you in this particular case, then "fixing the Americans" - were that even possible - would ultimately benefit you little.

                                Yeah. I'm not a fan of it. Context clues, though.

                                True. As someone who has grown up with a mix of all of it (American, Euro, and different computing conventions), I think the American system is garbage. The others at least have some sort of logical flow.

                                Then again, we also have coins that are out of size/value order, too...haha.

                                  And as with the Metric System, the chances of it changing anytime soon are about the same as me buildng a nuclear reactor out of wood in my back yard.

                                  But yeah, Euro guys please keep poking your American online friends in the eye about it every chance you get...it is greatly appreciated and not demoralizing at all. /s

                                  I'm with you. It's frustrating (either way: the fact that it won't change, and the fact that we have to put up with it and that people razz us about it).
