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.

    Magic of Flight Sim...

    part of these screenshots are also posted in the General Forum but I thought let's put them all together in a single thread, I will add new ones later
    all screenshots are completely unedited (only converted a couple to black and white) and come straight out of FSX-SE




    Now This...is what makes Simming for me worthwhile...

        Yikes. I guess United has a problem on their hands if they're being catered by Southwest. In any event, nice [MOD NOTE: I think he meant "shots," so...] shots.

            I thought it was just two compliments for the price of one ("nice ****" & "nice shots" ... very efficiently merged as "nice shits")

            Don't worry (and thank you Kevin)

                Oh, crap. Sorry. Must have fat fingered it and didn't see it. That's what happens when the I and O keys are right next to each other.

                  Beautiful shots, Robin! There are times in this hobby when you get a breathtaking view, but you seem to get a lot of them. Nice work!!

                  BTW: I've torched more than one port engine on the JS41...that one made me cringe!

                                    Great pictures but I’m curious how you got them:

                                    What scenery are you using?

                                    What hardware are you using?

                                      Little addendum: the screenshots are all made with the FSX in-game "capture screenshot" command and are not edited in any way (only saved to .png in MS Paint)

                                        I purchased REX and SkyForce but uninstalled it when I did not receive any support after attempting to register in their forums. I was unaware I could run multiple weather programs simultaneously provided the proper options are enabled or disabled to avoid conflict. Interesting indeed.

                                        But, can REX Essentials and SkyForce be easily uninstalled?

                                          Actually, I don't know (never uninstalled them) Especially Sky Force is what really makes my virtual world come alive so I won't uninstall it. But if you mean just the textures then yes, you just have to install textures from another program to overwrite the current ones in use in the sim. Maybe best however to write down for yourself which textures you use from which program, to keep track of things.. 😎

                                              Couldn't fly without it anymore (at least BASE, Vector, openLC & Trees HD) But for 32-bit FSX you may need to uncheck some visual eye candy to keep the VAS at acceptable levels, see also my above mentioned setup-thread. For ORBX airports I usually turn off everything that isn't airport related, but also 3D people and 3D grass. For the 64-bit P3D this is however not really necessary anymore.

                                            I only use P3D v4. It is in P3D that things don’t look correct and I wish I could figure it out and get the scenery I see in some people’s screenshots.

                                              Can't help you with P3D. Only other tips I can give you right now are: try experimenting with the lighting in Sky Force (meaning dawn, day and dusk settings) and the visibility settings in AS16. Again, see the threads/posts I mentioned earlier. And maybe adjust your monitor settings, could help to turn the brightness up or down a notch, to adjust for a better lighting experience and less "dullness" of the world.

                                              Since this is a thread about what makes Simming for me worthwhile, I think PMDG wouldn't mind if I also show you some shots I made from a non-PMDG plane (no longer for sale) 😎

                                                It is amazing how we advanced over the last 30 years. I wonder what Flight Sim will look like in 2525 (if man still survives.)

                                                  I think it will be called "Teleport Simulator 2525" by then.

                                                Would the shots of the Concorde be the XPlane version?

                                                  No, it's actually FSX Acceleration, spiced up with all my current addons (Orbx, REX etc) I specifically installed it again - next to my FSX-SE setup - for this addon airplane alone, since I couldn't order the up-to-date FSX-SE/P3D version anymore as of early October. I had to install the earlier released boxed version (eBay) instead, which unfortunately isn't compatible at all with FSX-SE.

                                                I was shocked the other day when I fired up FSX and it recognized the Alpha yoke. Since there are certain aircraft unavailable in P3D (767, J41, etc) I thought I’d give it a go again. Because my hardware is way beyond FSX requirements I have the graphics maxed out so maybe I’ll install Orbx again with all of the other stuff. Thanks for the screenshots.

                                                It will I’ll certainly be interesting to see what MS releases in 2020 if they release on time.

                                                  Yeah, FSX isn't too bad. Not bad at all... 😎
