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.

    nose detail work...GOL style

    FINALLY found a good enough pic to see what the heck that tiny little "stuff" was on the nose of GOL PR-VBY just to the left of the L1 door......

    Going on my paint.....

    ZSEntK.jpg

    Probably need to put a slight gray transparent background on it because it looks like its one big sticker on the side not separate Delta, AF and KLM stickers. Details......

    Done with GOL.
    Here is the door detail work.....and you can see I did put the gray sticker behind the airline logos. Also had to redo the gray door frame....not sure why some airlines make that smaller.

    714qmf.jpg

    And this is how it looks in the sim....(but a 1000 times better-looking in the sim vs screenshot as JPEG compression kills the quality of the screenshot)

    4kDGQm.jpg

    Nice glam shot showing all the different elements that needed paint for this livery....winglets both sides (all 4 sides really), registration on both wings....bottom AND top (sheez....more work, hehe).

    dXP1Vh.jpg

    The other side (hehe...usually done last as you're mostly duplicating parts you perfected on the left side then flipping copies of them to the right side...at least that's how I do it)

    r0ORDe.jpg

    On this airline...they polish the heck on their nacelle lips. I replicated their hard work and beautiful glint the sun makes off them (Some main texture work as well as 2 channels on the metal map to get this effect).

    Paw8nB.jpg

    Finally, if you fancy yourself a passenger on this plane....this is the view out the right window.

    fnvBvx.jpg

    This was a fun paint....love orange and the details were challenging to find and then replicate. Off to work on VARIG now.

        Thanks Brian....I'll ping ya next time I'm struggling with a certain part of a livery I can't find. šŸ˜‰
        Its almost like a scavenger hunt sometimes...can be frustrating but satisfying when you finally find that pic shows you just what you're looking for.

                If you are referring to the gray line around the door frame, they paint lines around the exits for enhanced visibility in an emergency. You will notice the over wing exits also have this. Easier to see the doors from the outside.
