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.

      Painters have no clue when she'll be released (we really don't....trust me)....but we were given the paintkit and I've started work on a few 700s

      This one is going to be tough to get that gradient just right getting all those dots in there that make up the gradient effect....but boy she is pretty!
      Working on all the "Welcome" text in the back now....it'll be a process to get them lined up and warped near the top as the fuse gets smaller up there...ugh.

        I’m also hoping for an update on the update. The hydraulic fluid and random VNAV-to-ALT HLD bugs are particularly annoying.

          Steve, this looks awesome. I have never painted aircraft before, but this is really impressive. Nice work!

          Do you have any Southwest variants for NGXu by chance?

            Thanks Serge!
            There are a TON of SWA painters who are specialists with that livery (Liveries). I know they will paint the heck outta the -700 for SWA when she's released. Not sure if any of them are on the Beta team....but I suspect they'll have their already awesome -800 paints moved over to the -700 in no time once she's in everyone's hangar.
            I specifically didn't paint SWA on the 800 for that reason (no need to duplicate great work)

            It's kinda' sad though because they are my hometown airline (well...one of them in Dallas besides American) and in fact I take a train (DART rail in Metro Dallas) by Love field everyday and see them departing and landing...as well as they fly right by my building in downtown Dallas.
            Anyway....SWA will be well-represented on the -700 I guarantee.

              Thanks Steve, that's awesome. You are an ET in the navy? Thank you for your service. I was a corpsman many years ago, stationed mainly in Norfolk. I fly for SWA VA, one of our major hubs is Love Field. I have flown there countless times in a sim (and once in RL). My favorite is the Love West Visual rwy 13R. Looking forward to checking out more of your work.

              Thanks Serge, thanks for your service as well.
              I was an AT (Aviation "ET"). The wings on either side of the electron denote aviation....so you'd see them on other related "Rates" in the Navy that would otherwise be "ground-pounder" Rates.
              Corpsman huh? I work with a lot of former HM's now that I'm in the Medical field....also stationed back in the late 80's in Norfolk at the NAS.

              Yeah when they land on the 13s they fly almost directly over the building i work at downtown. When they land on the 31s ...they fly directly over my house. so I see SWA a LOT! Lol

            The only things I know of are the fuel temp model and the engine start switches, they have been on the list for a while now so hoping those bugs get squashed in the next update.

                    Clever answer..
                    But that would not be an update, but simply a release announcement.

                    I just find it would be nice to know where in the process we are.
                    reading in this and other forums, I´m not alone having put the NGXu in the Hangar for now.
                    Not because it´s flyable, but rather because it has bugs right now that kills the immersion, having to use workarounds to get it to do things it should do on it´s own and indications that are not correct.
                    After all, this is not the cheapest addon around, and while fixing bugs takes time, some feedback about where we are, and what is looked into, would be nice.

                      If you have been with PMDG for a long time you would now that they rarely give progress information,they aren't lika Leonardo or FsLabs.
                      I have a feeling that expansion will release in March,but who knows...

                        If they said the update was 99% completed it would mean that everything was possible. There‘s no actual value on update updates

                          I did that one for the NGXu. It was a headache but looked great in the end. Nice job!
