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.

    Mickel's Liveries

    So... my debut...




    Here:
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XZkbcDB57eC-hQmOwXyQt30qzClpvC9g

    It should install via the ops center.

    Feedback and advice happily accepted. As I get the hang of it, I'll probably revisit with a V1.N.

    Looks great Mike! I KNOW how hard those nose stripes were.
    This plane will be stunning when it gets PBR....oh the metal! Hit me up when that happens and I'll work with ya to make that metal really shine (I've had some experience in that area) hehe.

      Thanks Steve. Ended up a lot of free hand on the stripes. There are some spots I'm a bit 'meh' about. After 24 hours of not liking it and being fed up with the sight (I'm sure you've had experience there too), it's growing on me again. I have a lot to learn though. I'll take it as a first go.

          Not the final... but thought some might use it while I work on the exhaust staining.

              Mike!
              You have no idea of the wonderful childhood and youth memories you brought up, with this Panagra. It, and Braniff’s DC-6 “El Conquistador”, and later the DC-7’s, Panagra’s “El Interamericano” and Braniff’s “El Dorado”, were the really “big” airplanes we used to go to see land on the gravel runway of La Paz’s (SLLP) airport.

              I remember having to dress up, to go to the airport to welcome my mom or dad returning from a trip.

              Patiently waiting for the DC-6 to show up in another part of PMDG’s “galaxy” and then, you can expect a lot of whining and “pretty pleases” to paint these ones (and maybe Lloyd Aéreo Boliviano’s?)

              This Panagra looks fabulous!

              Thank you Roberto. I am rather fond of this livery, even though I have not actually flown it anywhere since I finished it.

              PBR is going to make this thing sing. And I will be taking Steve up on his offer. ;-) I am quietly hoping The Boss will flick me the paint kit early... as long as it works in V4.

              I want to do more Central American and Caribbean liveries. The hard part is finding half decent references. There are sooo many possibilities.

            Love the Panagra El Pacifico. Lovely and historically significant.

              I did the whole fleet in '68: ET-AAX, ET-AAY & ET-AAZ, given it's a pretty simple swap. There are a couple of other liveries. One is as delivered in '58, and the other basically the same as the one I've done with simplified titles. I might do the latter at some point.

              High blowers are needed for a HAAB departure.

              They should install via the Ops Center.

                    Thanks Lee. I’m sort of happy with it. I can imagine constantly tweaking, once i’ve extracted a template for the dirt.

                  (ps, I had plans to get two more done, until I found photos of them with a different taper in the stripe on the nose, which won't be a five minute job...)
