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.

    The Mystery of Ground Operations!

    G'day all.

    I've had a strange occurrence with my 737 aircraft recently. On the last two flights the Ground Vehicles refuse to approach the aircraft (see oics below). Neither will the GPU or Air Con units disconnect nor will the Stairs go away.

    The pushback sequence still works and leaves the ground units such as vehicles, stairs etc behind when it moves the aircraft. I can then operate the flight normally.

    I always start my flights from a saved scenario/panel state. I have GSX installed but never use it with PMDG aircraft.

    I've had a similar problem with my PMDG QoTS 747.

    All running on P3D ver 4.5.

    I'd be grateful for any advice.

    Cheers

    Warwick

      Hi Alex, no I don't. Just one at a time.

        I have had problems with external power not disconnecting. If you remove chocks too soon disconnection can hang up.

        Some vehicles wait until other vehicle movements have completed. I have no idea what the logic is but that might explain why vehicles didn't approach.

          G'day Kevin, It's not that. The vehicles don't approach at all, they'll happily sit there till the end of time I'm thinking. I'm considering reinstalling the aircraft to see if that makes a difference. I doubt it's a panel state since it seems to effect all the models in the 737 hangar in the same way.

          Odd!

            Maarp All your 737s will use the same panel state, so that doesn't rule out a panel state issue. Reinstalling rarely solves anything. I'd try a default panel state first, at least.

            You haven't said what you are actually doing, you need to be a bit more specific to get useful replies.

              No need to reinstall. If and when you have any problem with ground services the quick fix is to go into the PMDG Options and hide/disable all of them and then show/enable all. This resets the logic and you're on your way.

                Oh, sorry. Just doing the normal pre-flight setup - fuelling, cargo load etc.

                  That's nearly as vague. I meant the order you were doing things, it might have been important. It really helps others trying to help if you are specific about the issue.

                  However as Dan's logic reset has sorted you out it's no longer important. That was a new advice for me too.
