  1. Righto, Kyle. Well, I’ll leave the post up here for wider discussion if you don’t mind and I’ll send a message to support too, in that case.
  2. Sorry, Kyle. I thought the forum was the place to ask these kind of questions - both community input and PMDG input to any questions I ask would be great
  3. Chaps I seem to remember before the 744 was released asking whether there would be an option of transponder panels/systems (i.e. whether we could select between the system with rotary knobs and that with the keypad-style display) and Kyle said there would only be one type simulated as the keypad-style system was too disparate to include merely as a swappable aircraft option in the FMS menu. However, now that the chaps have completed the 748 and it has the keypad-style transponder, I wondered 1) if this was sufficiently similar to the keypad transponder system in the 744 and, if so, 2) whether a selectable option could now be viable in the 744 options menu in the FMS? I know Lufthansa, and I think BA too, have the keypad transponder panels in their 744s and it would be nice to be able to recreate them.
  4. When you put it like that, Simon, the cost seems a little more justified, but I still can’t help feeling that access to information about Boeing aircraft that, outside of our hobby, would be massively abstruse, seems very, very steep. It’s not as if PMDG are asking for information that would require Boeing to employ specialist engineers to provide; it’s info that Boeing must know for safe operation of their aircraft. That said, there aren’t many people to whom I will bow to superior knowledge - you are one of them, Simon.
  5. $400,000 per annum for performance data? Why??

    A few thoughts.

    I also think the torch would be great - often I’ve had to fumble in the darkness for the battery switch to start the APU. I’d have thought that the real aircraft has some kind of boarding light so that you can get some light in the flight deck before turning the battery on, doesn’t it? If not, a little torch would be great. Xplane has this feature already, I believe.

    PBR - Kyle was not kidding

    I've seen the intrductory spiel to it on the Prepar3d website but really don't understand what PBR does.

    747 glowing yoke P3D v4

    I've seen the kinds of mess shaders can make to the sim, so I stay well away. If P3D had a native camera setup, I would never use 3rd party add-on cameras either. Why the people at EZCA decided to add ridiculous, gratuitous effects that completely change the sim physics I will never know.

    Do you have Orbx Global Vector Doug? Because with my T2G LFPG, I have to run the configurator and remove the LFPG exception in it, otherwise I get really bad scenery sinking issue.

    RWY26 Montego Bay

    Thank you; more specifically, though, can I exclude the "static" jetways and replace with GSX Expansion SODE jetways, or is this not possible because they are are not modelled as separate objects but just painted into the scenery.

    RWY26 Montego Bay

    Hi guys, I'm interested in getting the RWY26 MKJS for P3D as somewhere to take my Jumbo. The only problem is, the Simmarket description has "static jetways"; does anyone know if these are modelled as separate objects, so that I can replace them with GSX expansion, or whether they're just painted into the scenery, so to speak, with no GSX replacement possible. If I can do a GSX exclusion on the "static" jetways, I'd be interested in getting this. Cheers folks

    The support is woeful, Doug, but if you want a decent Hong Kong, the T2G version is lovely. I have their LFPG too, and it’s really nice. Performs very well too.

    [06OCT18] Livery Painters are a dime a dozen...

    Alex from Goldstar Textures should get involved here - his PMDG repaints have even included accurate control column checklists and flight deck placards, and they're brilliant repaints. Christian Mohr does this with his repaints too - not just immensely accurate outside, but inside as well. I don't know if that's relevant to the Ops Centre, but I love it. John and Steve are both fantastic, too, of course.
  14. Hi folks, I appreciate that, even at relatively light weights, the aircraft will accelerate beyond 250kts to ~260kt mark below 10,000ft, unless manually limited in the VNAV CLB page, and that this is likely so that there is a buffer from the minimum flaps UP manoeuvring speed. i just wanted to know whether ATC around the world appreciate that this is likely to be the case and 747s routinely just accelerate a tad beyond the 250kt limit without permission/warning, or whether you have to wait with flap 1 extended until ATC says 'no speed restriction' or similar (in reality I know that flying out of London and UK airports this tends to happen pretty quickly after departure anyway, but I just wondered). Cheers
