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.

    Lol. Good one, yeah I’m flying it with that look as well. Now you can fly it like you stole it with a wheel clamp!

      It seems random too, I loaded for a flight this morning and the gear was normal. But every other flight, yellow nose wheel and leopard spot main gear.

        Yeah it's intermittent on my system as well. Just started a new flight this morning with a livery from inibuilds a united 900ER from KORD to TNCA and it's fine. No artifacts on the gear. This the second flight since I bought NGXu that is fine, all the others have had artifacts.

          Good Morning all, I reloaded my P3DV4.4 to V4.5.13.32097. It remains exactly the same, yellow nose wheel and yellow spots on the main gear, at initial start up and at the gate in the day and night. Looks like there are various people with the same problem, a fix should be initiated. Regards Keith Andrew

            Gents,

            i have been collecting data from your feed back and I am not seeing a pattern at all. This is one of the unique issues, I don’t see a pattern yet. This appears to be a random, thing. I need more time to digest the data and see if there’s something obvious.

            A little bit patience here, we are aware of the issue but it’s difficult to pinpoint what the issue is exactly. I will be back in a bit with a few questions for you guys to verify.

            thanks,

                  Morning Jason and others

                  I loaded my NGXu last night using the PMDG 737 House Model and for the first time no yellow nose wheel. I loaded one of the downloaded liveries, still no yellow nose wheel. As you said the problem is inconsistent. Just feedback. Regards Keith Andrew

                        Shader mods? I haven't gone back to look at the entire thread since it was first started, so I don't remember what anybody tried.

                          I have found that they appear when I resize or move the P3D window. As such I am now loading everything I need to run before starting P3D then carefully not moving the window before going into full screen mode. That way I can make a flight without the annoying markings. I am also running on three monitors if that helps find a solution. I use no shader mods.

                          it’s the only aircraft that this happens with.

                            Brian, that looks to me like a texture corruption. Those are patterned yellow dots and not what is normally seen with a shader mod error.

                            Texture corruption in P3D can be cause by a scenery addon not correctly tagging a texture (ie using global when it shouldn't be used or duplicate texture names). Do you have any suspect sceneries?

                              Dan,

                              The image above from Roar are identical to those I get no matter where I load the aircraft, but only if I move or resize the P3D window. From others who have reported this the images are pretty much identical.

                              I have no suspect sceneries that I am aware of. However given that I have all of ORBX products and dozens of other airports installed that would be difficult to rule out.

                                About a year or so ago, I ran into a problem where the entire interior of my NGX VC Cockpit was textured with the surface textures from the FSDT KDFW where the aircraft was situated, imagine airport surface markings on everything but the gauges. It was not a FSDT scenery causing the error. I found the problem scenery but it took some sleuthing. This was also an earlier version of P3D so it is just as likely that the problem here is unrelated but I mention it as a avenue to consider.

                                  Just recently purchased the NGXU , and am experiencing the same issue. Just seem to appear from nowhere and every time I load the NGXU .Wondering if anyone got this resolved ?



                                  Thanks

                                    I get the same thing, sometimes it's ok and then it just appears, on several liveries. I use no shader mods.
                                    Directly after it appeared on the NGXu , I went into the aircraft selection menu, and it was also visible on the 747 QOTS II (when the structure of the airplane is loading, and the skeleton is briefly visible, the yellow spots were there).

                                    Regards,

                                        Yes I am. Only 1 screen is used by P3D (in fullscreen mode), the other screens are desktop for other utilities.

                                          I am using NO shader mods whatsoever, why is this still a problem? I also have the latest drivers, clear my shader and using the latest Pmdg updates

                                              image_5225.jpg I started seeing this today too. No shader programs in use. Updated to the latest pmdg software. The only thing I added was a freeware KDAL scenery pack. Went in and changed the priority to last in the scenery window. Restarted Prepar3d and the plane loaded twice correct then yellow gears on the third attempt. Restarted after a video driver update and it loaded correctly. Seems sporadic.

                                                  I guess it does not appear on the preview.

                                                  Funny thing, I have not seen the problem for last two months or so, but it reappeared again with the last update. Interesting.

                                                    Just curious, for those who know they've got the latest P3D, no shader mods, other possible causes eliminated etc. - is there a common thread there with liveries by any chance? Because it seems pretty strange to have this popping up even when you first load the aircraft in P3D.

                                                      It is unlikely to be liveries; however, a freeware KDAL scenery raised my eyebrows. I've seen texture corruption on aircraft before cause by scenery with mislabeled textures especially those with global properties.

                                                      That would certainly make sense too, duplicate file names. With liveries I got to wondering because someone posted in another thread somewhere that file copies were showing up where they shouldn't be.

                                                      I fly almost exclusively the official Ryanair EI-ENI livery (vRYR job is hard!). I have never seen it anywhere else, but this is not really relevant as I did so few flights with other liveries. I will try to make few flights with KLM liveries in next few days and see.

                                                      As to DDowns comment: no airport scenery used in my case.
