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.

    About Cockpit Ambiance

    Dear Community,

    I would like to make a criticism if you agree this. Please describe my criticism as constructive because we love you..
    The cockpit sounds are excessively loud, I cannot hear the F/O when he/she talks... especially the extremely annoying engine sounds suppress the cockpit ambience, I don't even want to talk about flaps and spoilers. My dear life partner PMDG company , please consider my complaint and let's keep up with the most realistic cockpit ambience please . When I put a flap, the avalanche sounds begins looks alike..

    My purpose of criticism is not looks to deteriorate, please accept my constructive criticism and let's get better together...wish you hope well..

    Best Regards

    Erkal SANLI

    mmh I never heared the flaps or spoilers in the flightdeck at all, netiher in the real one nor in the NGXu. Could you post some pictures of your sound settings, both in P3D as well as in the NGXu?
    Maybe there's something not quite set correctly in your sim as I don't recall any of the issues you're posting about.
    Greetings,

      I agree on the ambiance that sometimes it's a bit too loud, but that can be customized in the CDU sound settings.
      But for flaps or spoilers I have to agree with Emi, never heard them neither in real one nor in the NGXu

        Have you experienced a landing in the cockpit of a 737?

        This is very much a balancing act for developers but if you're paying a premium for a realistic flying experience, then that extends to how sounds are replicated in the cockpit.

          They actually recorded the sounds from a 90 minutes flight on an actual 737, so they surely are extremely accurate. And they are indeed, when switching from the NGX to the NGXu you can hear an incredible difference in sounds.

          My point is that the ambiance sounds can be reduced in the sound options of the CDU, but it's weird that OP hears flaps and spoilers sounds in the cockpit since I never heard them in almost every airplane, including the NGXu.
          I also flew a few times on a training simulator, and I remember that on take off or landing you could hear the gear, but not the extending/retracting of the flaps or spoilers.

            Sorry, my reply wasn't aimed at you, but at the original poster.

            I'm actually in full support about how PMDG have modelled the sounds. They're probably as accurate as you can get!

              Ah ok, sorry.😅 Yes they are extremely accurate in terms of quality, but I find them slightly unbalanced. That extends across all their products. But in the end, since it can be customized is no big deal.

            Hi Community;

            Please check the video, Stab Trim and Alt Horn sound is very nice and audible, also some other cockpit sounds are very nice, Dear PMDG Developers please check this sounds, we would like to hear the related sounds as well. Please improve the warning sounds and ambience please improve ( especially Trim sound we almost cant hear in the air in the NGXu cockpit )...even I set all volumes are fully%100..

              Depending on the age of the aircraft you hardly can hear the trim sound in real life as well. Especially on the newer aircraft you pretty much don't hear it. PMDG did a good job with it.

                  Just take the audiofile and make it louder using an audio editor such as audacity.
