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.

    This is not good to be PMDG, they normally fix things like this easy and update it accordingly, but this time it seems like they don`t care about fixing the BBJ Engine isssue not even one of the developers have even answered to this thread to update us all, eventually a reason why they haven`t fixed the issue yet.

    I hope they will fix it so we all get at least the right engine options..
    If it's something that impacts the flight dynamics, the fix is most likely anything, but easy.

      And why any of the developers should answered? This has been logged as you have written. Changing engines is not as easy as you think.

        I think instead of haggling over such a small issue, one should just head to the aircraft.cfg and change the thrust rating there from 24200lbf to 27300lbf and call it a day. I mean, this problem already has a DIY Solution tbh.

          Again is not as simple as that.

            There hasn't been much comment or movement on this. The comment by Calzonister, while I can't verify it, appears to come from a place of knowledge.

            PMDG didn't release a variant of the freighter because no such beast had been delivered. Yet here we are that the variant of the BBJ may not have been ever delivered.

            Either Calzonister is wrong or is this a miss from the Dev team. Even DDowns questioned it when it was released,

              I think the dev team is fully occupied with the 777 and GFO at the moment. But as Chris has acknowledged that it will be worked on if it‘s possible I guess they will do it after that. It seems it was a mistake and these things happen, but Chris wouldn‘t have said that if they didn‘t plan to fix it.

              But as stated many times now it‘s not done by simply increasing the engine thrust. They need to adjust (and test) the whole flight model against higher power settings. Probably thousands of variables, then a new performance table has to be created for the EFB... it just takes its time and needs to be done by developers who already have been assigned to another project.

                I'd much rather have the DC-6 in P3Dv5.

Just wondering as the information I am finding only shows 26/27K engines for BBJ. Also is the fuel burn significantly different between the 24k and 26/27k engines?
              The 24k is not used. To date PMDG has not acknowledged this error and to date it is still not addressed.

                I don't know about not being acknowledged, if you scroll up, there's two posts where Chris addressed this.

                As for actually fixing it, I agree, it hasn't been fixed yet. But as I said in an earlier post, if it impacts the flight dynamics, the fix isn't as simple as people make it out to be.

                    Best to log a support ticket if you want an actual answer from PMDG. I have found that they respond to support tickets extremely quickly.

                      There is no need to a ticket for this. This is known and already logged.
