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.

    Cannot activate plugin in X-Plane 11.50 beta (Vulkan).

    I understand that the DC6 is an X-Plane 10 model which will receive no further support. Up until now I have been able to manually activate the plugin and have had some very enjoyable flights with it. With X-Plane 11.50 beta (Vulkan) however, I cannot even activate the plugin. Has anyone else experienced this and is there a workaround? I have tried saving the aircraft as an XP 11 model through Planemaker to no avail.

    Regards

    Charles Kingsford.

    The same for me. I'm sure there are a lot of guys who interested in functional DC-6 in X-Plane 11.50+
    Yes, we clearly understand that the model is for XP10, but we had a plenty of joy flying it in 11.41 with some limitations, but it was better then nothing. If only someone could release some "unofficial" patch to make it back working in 11.50...

          It isn't possible to make a patch since DC 6 is copyrighted and it's a property PMDG by law.If someone wants to do something with the code it needs to get PMDG's approval.

            Let me preface my statement with the fact that I have been an avid user of FSX/P3D for many, many years ...

            I was disappointed with the announcement that PMDG is no longer developing for X-Plane. X-Plane w/Vulcan is shaping up nicely. It runs smooth as butter under all circumstance (for me anyway), and I don't have a high end system. I dropped P3D a while ago because I feel that sim is being stretched to the breaking point. There is only so much you're going to get from it. Every since P3Dv5 was released, the frame rates and stutters are horrible (w/HF2).

            Had the NGXu loaded and couldn't get past 20 frames on a good day no matter where I was (no scenery installed). Basically I recently spent $130 for something I won't use anymore (Not PMDG's fault).

            I have always thought that XPlane was a 'cleaner looking' sim with better scenery (got ORBX loaded with True Earth areas) and everything just runs smooth with 45-60+ framerates using other 3rd party (complex) aircraft in heavily populated areas at almost max settings.

            I was an Alpha/Beta tester for MSFS0 and granted the frames and stutters exist there as well (even since the release), however it's new and will be improved over the coming years where as P3D IMO will only be as good as it is now (granted they have come far from v1.0, but there are limits).

            I am looking forward to PMDG's aircraft (all of them) when they are available for MSFS. Not getting rid of XPlane and perhaps PMDG will take another look at it.

              Could you share your PC specs please? I own XP11 but have never really used it but was always curious about that R22 and the Hotstart TBM. I would have to get another SSD I think but if I could run XP THAT fast I wouidn't hesitate a second anymore.

                I don't know PMDG's marketing strategy, but sure they don't have too many sales of DC-6 for XP10. If they are not going to update it for XP11, it will be absolutely generous gesture to make DC-6 a community project, like some developers do with outdated models...

                  Some guys for one reason, some for another, but we want to stay in X-Plane and have good models for it.
                  As for me, being a real pilot, i've tested both flight models of 2020, and clearly understood that the new sim is just an updated version of FSX in terms of flight dynamics (facepalm). So, i stay with X-Plane...

                    I limit my frames to 60 via the NVidia Control Panel. Remember Vulcan is still in Beta (RC1 at the moment I think).

                        One thing I did notice however is the using XEnviro will kill your frames. Until they get that worked out with vulcan it's a $60 brick. Using FSGRW with stock clouds, really nice.

                          Hello everyone !

                          I second that !

                          Please PMDG read this : I'm also a commercial pilot who enjoyed a lot performing old school IFR full flights on your DC-6. Please do the minimum to make it workable in latest X-Plane iteration, or give this project freedom to the community for continued support.

                          Felis did this in the Antonov An-24 to great success.

                          Otherwise, all classic airframes, due to lack of interests, will be forgotten in history.. I'm personally fed up with the whole market being flooded by winged buses full of flat screens, damn ! Aviation once was glorious and heroic after all !
