0: read the manual. There's an "introduction Manual" about 3 pages long at the start. do not skip this, even if you have been flying other PMDG products for years.

 

1: Sign your name on your post or signature.

2: Hover the mouse over the area  I have circled in yellow and roll your mouse wheel away from you until the number is as high as you want to go (note that the number will roll up to 45000ft even if the aircraft can't physically get there at the weight.)

3: Click the button I have put a yellow square around.

 

4: The aircraft will climb, but it will probably get overspeeds/stalls if you don't do something with your airspeed window as you climb.

 

5: Thrust has very little to do with airspeed.

 

6: If you have fsinn, turn off the weather. It's wrong, and you will have problems above FL240

 

7: If you don't know what fsinn is, then you probably don't have fsinn.

If you haven't flown the tutorial flight, you should fly it. My bet is that you're just doing something incorrectly. The tutorial effectively shows you how to use the aircraft.

I think that broad hint was wasted, Trent.

yeah but i want to use my FMC

 

Not sure what you mean, you can still use the FMC, you just have to dial in the altitude you want the plane to climb to. For example, if you enter 10000 than the plane will not climb past that altitude, however, if your cruise altitude is FL360 for example, then you have to dial 36000 into the altitude on the MCP, after that the FMC will climb to that altitude.

 

However, if you see "VNAV ALT" on the primary flight display then you need to push the altitude knob and the plane will enter "VNAV SPD" and start climbing.

I think you might have a big misunderstanding of how the plane works, because I think you might not understand the basic interactions between the FMC and the MCP. Read the tutorial; it'll answer your questions, and if you have more questions after that feel free to post them here.

omg so weird I have to dump fuel to get to cruising

 

You really don't. Planes don't depart with full tanks usually, and if they do, they fly at the altitude that's appropriate for that weight. As many others have stated here, you should really fly the tutorial flight. It will provide you with a lot of knowledge that you quite honestly require to fly this plane. It's a study sim - not something you can just fire up and fly with little to no knowledge and expect it to work properly.

My bet is - its a troll, since he does not even follow the simplest of tipps, maybe the glider would be a better suitable AC for him....

I recommend reading the tutorial flight 1, it will teach you what you need to know on how to fly the plane

 

It should be located in \Microsoft Flight Simulator X\PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\Flight Manuals\PMDG-737NGX-Tutorial-1.pdf

I'd be more interested in the MCP, honestly.

 

Moreover, with the LEGS page like that, I'm assuming the FMC wasn't set up properly.

I agree. You guys went for the hook, line, and sinker on this one. Let him fly at 10000 and dump fuel.

Yes all airlines take off with fuel tanks full, have full flaps till the cruise ALT of 10,000 feet. Then dump 50% of the fuel and step climb to 12,000ft. Open all the doors and throw the fat people out so they can get to 12,200ft.

 

Then fly Direct to WILYY from TITY

But you have a lot reading to do.

No. What is required for the flight, taxiing, and a reserve based on the fuel policy the carrier is using.
