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.

    Baggage Handling Page 4/4

    Hello PMDG,

    since it is not written in the introduction manual I will ask here. After some fooling around with manually running ground services, I have gotten the hang of it and have managed to make it jive with GSX. Basically, all vehicles that GSX uses I disable in the submenu's. NGXu notices that I am requesting something (for example a fuel truck) for refueling and because it sees that I have the PMDG one hidden, the REQUEST immediately changes to release. Very good. Knowing this I can properly ground turn an airplane except for one. The baggage and cargo. I am unable to determine how to make the baggage carts show up. I have all loaders and carts hidden in the submenu's. By the previous logic, they should appear as present as soon as I click on them. However it works when requesting the loader, but for the life of me, no matter the combination or time, the baggage carts refuse to change from REQUEST to RELEASE. Meaning I can refuel, service, board, etc., etc.. But I can not load cargo in the aircraft as the carts never "show up".

    So I ask, is there a specific set of conditions that need to be complied with before you ask for the baggage carts?

    Interesting. What I have been doing is using GSX to marshal into the gate the di the turn around although I have found out a way to change the time and also how to use the enroute turnaround also

      I have this same problem as well. I use GSX so I set "ground Service Objects" to "HIDE ALL" and am able to load or unload pax before or after a flight , but not able to load or unload baggage. I can request for the FWD and AFT loader, but not the FWD and AFT cart to start the loading or unloading. The FWD and AFT carts only show and loading or unloading is possible when I use "SHOW ALL" in the ground service objects page. like the OP says there is little write in the manual as to how it works so I was assuming I was doing something wrong. 2019-12-25_19-54-22-288.jpg

      Additionally, the maximum cargo weight limit for the front hold is difference in the MCDU than in the EFB. Haven't teste the aft. EFB = 7846 lbs and MCDU = 6716 lbs max..
