So its fine to criticize MS/Asobo on a daily basis and some can't criticize PMDG if they are not happy with their current business model, Really? I have loved PMDG in the past and will probably suck it up and buy the 777 but i'm not touching any of their other products.

Who said it's fine to criticize MS/Asobo on a daily basis? By the way, criticism in a fair and constructive manner is always called for, however some seem to have lost track of what that means and what's just bashing willy-nilly just for the sake of it.

This is a fantastic resource for flight simulator information and assistance. A really friendly community and a real antidote to the toxicity of Avsim. 

Did you just refer to Reddit and mention friendly community in the same comment? 😉

That's not drama, just a fair reply to what you posted.

Not all is green on that side either...

For the first time he didn't complain about Asobo 😂

I hope he fixes that soon.


Happy with MSFS 🙂 Looking forward to XP12

And as usual PMDG are way behind their schedule, mostly because of deficiencies as a developer (honestly admitted by RSR himself this time, which I appreciate). I need to get my hopes down to see the 777 in 2022, I guess. And my beloved 747... oh love when will I see you again?!

The next two years I assume.. ( for the 777 and 747 )

I don’t understand the ridiculous constant pitchforking. The 737 is arguably the best it’s ever been. if you dont like PMDG nobody put a gun to your head and forced you to buy their product.

I don't understand it either. I have just purchased the B737, so please tell me what is wrong with it ?

Thanks

Meanwhile PMDG is getting absolutely flamed in /r/flightsim

It is fun to watch to be honest. I don't agree with all the points but still

1. No flawless simbrief integration (check out the superb 787 Heavy Division mod to see what a flawless simbrief integration looks like.
2. No proper cabin modeled in the BBJ (seems to still be part of the external model).
3. Substandard texture work - move your outside camera to the wheel whell and behold the low-rez "jpegs"
3a. Compare and contrast the texture work of the Fenix to that of the 737 (for example cabin, galley, etc.)
4. No EFB

Points 1-4 are pretty much default in the base simulator and/or the various freeware mods

There is nothing wrong with it, just needs the EFB and some refinement which is coming,just a bit slower than we would like,now if you want to have fun get your self the Hjet, wow amazing fun

The 737 is pretty good already. It does need some improvements but PMDG will have to deliver on that promise if they want to sell more variants.

I just don't understand the apparent obsession with Simbrief and EFBs that are nothing more than convenient utilities. You'd think they were as vital as a pair of wings to succesful flight from the frothing on here. I've managed nearly 18 years on Vatsim in PMDG 737s without either utility but now suddenly anything which doesn't have both gets a good kicking. I don't get it #justsayin .

So how exactly did you calculate your takeoff performance? With performance charts and a pencil?
I agree that anything else is basically "bonus" and "quality of life" (which DOES matter for a hobby, mind you), but unless you are using a (payware) performance tool like Topcat a missing takeoff perf calc is a glaring issue in a flight sim.
Also there's a reason there are EFBs in real aircraft, and I doubt airlines pay those for entertainment only. It's quite the opposite, they enhance situational awareness and reduce the workload for the pilots, both is extremely important for a "sucessful flight" (safe + efficient + on time).
