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.

                Gate assignments, different types of performance requests, oceanic clearance if that is needed, and much, much more!

                    GFO will change the simworld forever. It'll become something you enter and exit, rather than creating and destroying. You know that GFO will always be operating in the background 24/7 365 days a year, just like real world ops.

                              But yeah GFO is definitely something that should be getting way way way more attention that it is getting currently. It seems highly underrated as it stands right now

                                Yeah I don’t understand it either. More people should be hyped for this. Might come as the previews come though. PMDG hasn’t shown/talked/revealed a whole lot about GFO here on the forums either so that might also be a reason why it’s not getting that much attention.

                                  I man theres not much to reveal other than the website and the functions it holds. Which will be in like a changelog sort of webpage maybe? Either way having the opportunity to help beta it would seriously be a dream come true

                                    Think it’s quite comprehensive work to be a beta tester - look how many flights some of them already have done Think more people will be excited when previews come

                                          The potential lies in GFO with the ability to link in different ways. There is potential for VAs but that would require VAs to change their model of how flights work. Then there is gate assignments. Then there is ATC if implemented in online networks via API.

                                              Hi Tim,
                                              I believe that GFO will change the way people may choose to fly. I am really looking forward to it.
                                              I am assuming that supplying the airline code to ACARS will enable VAs to interface with the aircraft's OOOIs.
                                              RSR, I believe, originally said that gate assignments will be provided during descent. How this will avoid AI aircraft at gates I don't know. Will GFO assign a new flight an appropriate gate?
                                              Re ATC involvement - are you referring to a potential additional requirement beyond current procedures?
                                              Regards, Richard
                                              Cheers, Richard McDonald Woods

                                                However most gate assignments come from ramp control due to late gate swaps and etc. So when the pilots call up it usually goes something like this

                                                Pilot: "southwest ****, we are on the ground"
                                                ramp control : "southwest **** D1, gate is clear"


                                                I can only give an example of southwest due to me working on the ramp but I have a hunch the others are very very similar. I'm looking more into weather changes and cpdlc, routes, VA integration, etc

                                                    Would be nice to end the weekend with. On the other hand we’re only half way through June - it’s only been two weeks since last update. Don’t know what to expect tonight though

                                                        I believe that GFO will change the way people may choose to fly. I am really looking forward to it.
                                                        I am assuming that supplying the airline code to ACARS will enable VAs to interface with the aircraft's OOOIs.
                                                        RSR, I believe, originally said that gate assignments will be provided during descent. How this will avoid AI aircraft at gates I don't know. Will GFO assign a new flight an appropriate gate?
                                                        Re ATC involvement - are you referring to a potential additional requirement beyond current procedures?
                                                        Regards, Richard
                                                        From what I understand there shall be an API for online networks to integrate into GFO. This will be either via secondary program, plug in, or direct integration in their clients. For controllers to use it regularly though it should not add any or very little to their workload. This how I perceive it in an IRL ARTCC. I know some controllers that say I will never use that. So it is still waiting to be seen.
