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.

    Cockpit not brown enough

    After upgrading to P3D V5, I realised my cockpit looks more white than brown:

    WhatsApp Image 2021-07-11 at 8.03.00 AM.jpegI soon discovered that enabling Enhanced Atmospherics made the cockpit sufficiently brown, but I'd rather stick to Active Sky. I believe it's a lighting issue, because EA naturally makes the lighting warmer, which allows the brown of the cockpit to show. I wonder if there's any way to enhance the lighting in general. I've tried Reshade, but it hasn't fixed anything.

    Have you tried HDR? I don't have any recommended settings because I don't use it myself, but in my experience it can make the cockpit a lot darker. Perhaps even too dark...

      I am using HDR. I tried turning it off but that did nothing and only made it uglier.

        Interesting situation, because I was just recently trying to figure out what causes this. I too use P3D V5 and active sky but have a brown cockpit, but have noticed many YouTubers have that whiter grayer one. I have yet to pinpoint which setting it is though. I am happy to maybe upload a screenshot of my settings and we can compare/contrast to see what might be different? Let me know, because I am actually curious how it would like to fly with a lighter cockpit (for myself). I'm also happy to hop on Discord or some other platform to just talk it through if you like. Either way, I am available and happy to help!

          Try playing with the HDR Saturation.

          I've found I must use the NVidia control panel to modify my display to be able to use MSFS with it's overdone HDR. I use NVidia settings as opposed to other applications control color, found on the Adjust Desktop Color Settings screen. In your case you might want to adjust digital vibrance.

            Hi, I resolved the problem by upgrading to v5.2 and enabling EA. Zac, the realistic cockpit colour is brown, so I'm not sure if you would want a whiter colour, but really the only notable setting of mine was that HDR was off.

              Copy that Bertrand! I don’t necessarily “want” the white color haha. I’ve just seen so many people with it on YouTube I was curious what caused and want to see what it looks like on my screen if that makes sense. Either way, glad you got it resolved! Happy simming
