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.

          Almost 2 years now since the announcement. In the meantime my initial enthusiasm dissipated somehow . Hopefully one of the twitch streamers like Chewwy94 will be part of the wide beta test phase and allowed to showcase this product

            Hi Guys,

            Have to admit me too I can't wait. Just imagine yourself in the 747 or 737 NGXu requesting Taf/Metar, ARR/DEP ATIS, PDC, guetting loadsheet, asking ATC to Level change or offset or hdg change to avoid weather and so many other cool (and real) stuff.

            Please Robert, release GFO as soon as possible !

            So excited about it !

            Best regards,

              How about the 777 with its CPDLC system?

            #7
            Look on the ATC page in the FMC on the 747’s, I think they added new stuff recently, it looks really cool

                No, only when GFO is released, I assume. But it looks very promising, and there's much more to come!

                  Exactly ! It looks actually ultra ultra realistic.
                  Very excited about it.

                        Yes, absolutely. And no doubt the guys at PMDG are doing an incredible job modeling all the aspects of true acars/cpdlc operations.
                        The glimpse we can have already today, checking the ATC page in 747's FMC as Anton said, is stunning.

                        It would be so great to see more on GFO.

                        Cheers and stay safe,

                          I agree, just checking out the ATC page in the FMC was stunning in itself, and this is probably just a tiny tiny bit of the entire GFO product. Let's hope for some previews in the months to come, can't be that far away now!

                              On the NGXu, that would also be, probably, my prefered choice. Because this aircraft is more than stunning.

                              But the cool thing with the 747-8 is that with GFO it will be an almost complete sim speaking of really cool features to use : EFB+ND taxi moving map + ECL(with deffered items, great implementation from PMDG, still missing on the 777), + RAAS + complete fmc + so many things

                              Cheers,

                                Well I’ve reached a point where I actually dreamt about GFO a few nights ago. I saw a lot of planes on the map on the GFO website lol

                                      Just to share that known et absolutly nice video with you guys concerning real preflight ops on a beautiful Air Austral 737-800

                                      https://youtu.be/TMh9v-C2SDQ

                                      ​​​​​​You'll see for just tiny seconds some Acars use regarding fuel uplift.

                                      They also get TO datas via Acars, but they request them via a radio call, which is funny.

                                      Best regards,

                                          Landed today at VTSS. And I missed the ATIS, WX and company updates done via Acars before T/D.
                                          But I'm so happy that will change pretty soon with GFO
                                          Hopefully very very soon ! It would be awesome to have a real preview about it.

                                          Cheers,

                                            I know. See the reason I absolutely love GFO is because it get simmers super close to reality. Not only that people who work in the industry will get closer together with it

                                                I am very much hoping that GFO releases to us this summer, been very excited for it and I expect in the time since the announcement they have gone far beyond expectations and will knock our socks off with what they release.

                                                  It definitely will 😎 At the announcement they said that literally hundreds of additional functionality was being added at an almost weekly basis, I think GFO will have so much to offer.

                                                    GFO will write a new page of the sim history, like the ngx did 9 years ago. It's a revolutionary product, and a new sim era will begin. It's going to be stunning.
                                                    Would be so cool to read a preview of it !

                                                      You're right Thimote. Also nice of PMDG to allow other developers to participate in GFO, it'll create even more incentives to purchase their products as well.

                                                      You ask for a preview - have you watched RSR's announcement regarding GFO, on YouTube? :-) He made an presentation lasting half an hour there, at least.

                                                        Hi Anton,

                                                        Yes I did watch this preview you're absolutely right to mention, but unfortunatley it's not an in-sim video, and the quality of the recording could get improved.

                                                        ​​​​​​But that is still a good start, you're correct.

                                                        So exciting !

                                                        Cheers

                                                          Yeah I agree with you on the video - it was very difficult to read the details on the different previews. Traditionally, there's always a phase with previews when it comes to PMDG, so this will probably happen with GFO as well (I hope so at least)
