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.

    PMDG OPS Center liveries disappeared

    Hello everybody!
    I have recently bought the 737. Initially I wanted to wait for the WX radar, but well, here we are

    I have a problem with liveries: I found the one I want to use on flightsim.to, but it does not have SSW, it comes with BW. I figured I'd make the required changes to the cfg to have the correct winglets, so I downloaded some liveries from the OPS Center in order to copy the cfg entries.

    The thing is I must have messed up something, because the PMDG liveries do not show up anymore, amd my modified one comes with pink wings. I'll deal with the pink wings later, the more pressing issue is getting back the liveries I downloaded from the OPS Center. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling them. All the files are there, I have updated the layout.json file with the tool, but still nothing. I cannot get N1TS back.

    There must clearly be something that I am missing, but I cannot figure out what it is. I have been making liveries for FSX/P3D for years, but I'm stumped.

    Is there some kind of logfile where I can find info on why it's not loading the liveries?

    Regards,
    Fabrizio

    First thing I would do is delete the one livery you tried to adjust. If you changed the downloaded from OPS Center uninstall them. Update the layout.json just for sure. Take a look into the sim if the default PMDG liveries appear.
    Did it work? Okay, install one of the SSW liveries from the OPS Center. And obviously install the livery back in you want to change.
    To 'convert' a livery from BW to SSW inside your livery folder there has to be a model.SSW folder. So first delete the existing model.BW and insert a model.SSW from another working livery.
    The aircraft.cfg needs only one change: the model entry should be model=SSW. Important! Leave the sim=B737-700 BW as it is, it's fine!
    And screenshots would be nice, to see what you have done. Right now it is just guessing on my side.

      This is the problem: I already did so, but even after redownloading the liveries, some of them do not show up in MSFS. The Layout JSON has all the files, even the hous and equipment files are present in the relevant folder, but the livery isn't selectable in MSFS. It just isn't there!

      As for the SSW conversion, thanks, I found the instructions in the paintkit.

        Do you see any logic behind which liveries show up and which not? Can you see the house liveries in the sim? If not a reinstall of the aircraft could be an option.

          I can see the house livery, and any new livery I download from the Ops Center or flightsim.to. What I cannot see is liveries I tried, then removed (via Ops Center) and reinstalled once more. The files are all there, but they do not work. Other liveries in the same folder do work. Sadly I can see no logic behind it. Reinstalling the aircraft seems like overkill, isn't there some kind of cache I could try emptying?

            Basically you have to check again and again the liveries which are not worked. So is there a texture.xxx folder, a model folder and an aircraft.cfg, is there a texture.cfg file inside the texture folder, do the entries inside the aircraft.cfg match the folder names and models. But as far as I understand you get problems with liveries provided by PMDG via OC, right?
            Without seeing any of your files it is pretty hard to tell what is going wrong there.
            There is only one other folder where livery information is stored (Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft .FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\packages \pmdg-aircraft-737\work\Aircraft) but those are information on cockpit elements.
            If you don't want to deinstall the aircraft, head over to PMDGs support and submit a ticket. They are really helpful and quick on response.
