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.

        I understand why, but frustrating. May still pull the trigger on the P3D version while the sale is going on. Hopefully a year doesnt go by waiting.

            I’m trying to grab a few aircraft during the sale as well-but I also only have P3D V5. I won’t be forced (like I was with ActiveSkyP3D) to install a blank V4 version of the 777 will I? I’m trying to get my new PC stable with all the addons at the moment.

                Thanks Chris-my intention would be to purchase all three base Boeing packs now and hold off on installing the T7 until it’s ready. I’m usually an Airbus type of guy (can you tell by my profile name ) but I have a soft spot for PMDG-the 747 and MD-11 were what really taught me about how commercial aviation aircraft systems work back in 2008/9 on FS9/X!

                (PS-I couldn’t find how to add a signature!)
                edit: found it!

                    Believe me, I would download V4 for the T7 if I could, rather than pester about the V5 update.
                    I still see V4 available for purchase on Lockheed-Martin's website if that's what you're asking.

                          Yes of course since V3,V4,V5 have the same licenses you can for sure head over to PMDG.COM and make yourself happy with one or more 777's

                                    I grew impatient and just rolled back to v4.5. . Everyone’s eyes and attention seem to be fixated on msfs2020 these days.

                                      Five months is rediculous. How long do we still have to wait for this update? Too busy with MSFS where you can make money? Nico de Graaff

                                      If you think you can develop software faster, have at it. Also, PMDG requires you to sign your posts with your first and last name, which you agreed to when you created an account here. Instructions on how to do so can be found here:

                                            Is it worth me buying for P3D5 or holding out for the MSFS version?

                                              Also, is it worth it for you... maybe... is it worth it worth for you... probably not.... both answers are equally correct based on what I know about your budget constraints. I know nothing... so how do you expect someone that doesn't know you to advise you on spending?

                                                  You're looking at at least until Q1 of 2021 before PMDG has an offering for MSFS and that's just an estimate. It depends on how badly you want to fly the 777.

                                                      +1 to both points there. Can’t wait to fly the T7.

                                                        It's more than five months. I am concerned that most developers will now have their attention diffused with the new sim, which seems to be a work unfolding. Since PMDG indicated a strong preference to invest heavily and long-term for the new sim, I am less confident that the activities for P3D will progress as planned. The 747 and 737 lines work well in P3D, but the 777 is behind.

                                                        Such is the way of things. If you have been a long-term customer, you'll learn that this just happens along the way.

                                                        Of course, I hope to be wrong, but the 777 line has been repeatedly pushed back in favor of other things. That is a fact that can be gleaned with a careful read of these forums.

                                                        Any of us who intend to stick with the "legacy" platform are likely taking a risk to do so. P3D is the next FSX in this regard - the availability of content will likely wane over time.

                                                          I don't know, I wouldn't be so pessimistic. It appears there are major shortcomings in MFS before complex addons can be catered for, and I suspect that is going to take quite a long time to remedy. I think PMDG would be organising their resources to allow for that.

                                                          Yeah, I feel your pain. The 777 somehow seems to fall to the bottom of the list while the 747 appears to be the favorite. Either way I don’t much care anymore as the 777 flies great and hasn’t given me any issues. Would be great to have it in MSFS but unfortunately I think the new sim is a mess. I only use it for GA aircraft and go back to P3D for airliners.

                                                        I'm not sure PMDG are favouring other products. I think, because the 777 needed significant work, it was easier to update the 747 and 737 that had already undergone those developmental changes first, ensuring that those projects were cleared and that they could then apply what they learned to the 777. That's how I've read it.

                                                        I don't think that's really the case.

                                                        FSX and P3D shared commonality. Meaning people could find a workaround to install their FSX compatible software into P3D. That only really changed when P3D became a 64bit platform, where developers had to make coding changes to ensure it was compatible. But it still wasn't a massive leap.

                                                        The difference here is that the only hope MSFS users have of getting P3D aircraft addons to run on the new platform is for developers to adapt their products for it. This will, from everything I've read so far, be a significant undertaking that involves rewriting thousands of lines of code. It's not a simple port over.

                                                        I've seen one developer write that it is akin to moving a P3D product to X-Plane -- I don't think there was one airliner addon that made that switch. It'll take time and patience.
