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.

    GSX Level 2 refueling question

    Does the NGXu use the Progressive refueling method in GSXu? If so, is it the done the same as PMDG 777? I assumed it did but had no luck getting the refueling to start. I have used it in the 777 so I am familiar with it. The 737 sets their time as "turnaround" which is different so the five minute rule may not apply.

    Hoping for some advice here.

    Thanks

    I suggest you do not use GSX to refuel your PMDG aircraft.

      Can you provide a little more information as to why not. Not being argumentative, just very curious.

        GSX doesn't refuel the aircraft anyway, it calls the aircrafts built in refuelling system if the developer of the aircraft supplies such an API. In the NGXu go to ground ops page in the FMC, REQUEST the PMDG fuel truck (make sure the PMDG fuel truck model is hidden) and pre-select the amount of fuel you require. Then in GSX ask for the fuel truck, then when GSX informs you that "the fuel truck is in position" and to "use the refueling system in your aircraft" press the START button in FMC and that is it. GSX will now see the fuel being loaded by PMDG and display the quantity of fuel being loaded on the fuel truck LED display and in the green bar at the top of the screen if you have that enabled too.

          That‘s a little off-topic but I wonder if GFO will take control of the refueling regarding a pre-calculated amount (plus extra fuel for wx by pilot‘s discretion). So starting a flight via GFO would start the loading and refueling process. If so it would make the whole GSX loading obsolete.

            I wouldn't call it obsolete, as GSX still has better animated jetways and follow me cars etc. I wish GSX could be made obsolete though as its the most buggy addon for FS ever I think.

                Open FMC> MENU> PMDG Setup> OPTIONS> SIMULATION> PAGE 8/10 You should be able to work it out from there.

                      In GFO you will get the aircraft in the state that the previous user left it. So if it was checked in with 6723 lbs of fuel you will get it with that amount. I you elect to use the PMDG operations all you will need to do in the FMC is tell it how much cargo, fuel and Pax and it will auto load the aircraft to those levels, no work around needed.
