  1. I was not going to buy this as I am more a Boeing pilot but at this price it is a day one buy for me. In my opinion this is much more realistic pricing for higher end planes in this platform to get good takeup and gain good profits through higher sales. I am not expecting out of the gate perfection just an honest try and progressive improvements which they seem to have done, after all PMDG has had 10 years to have the framework of what the just delivered.
  2. Well please explain the described functionality or non functuality......it was not an insect that was squashed between the pages of the program.
  3. We can guess. But this was a few years ago, tine to have written more
  4. Add lack of documentation after they stopped all the Boeing docs and removed them from our aircraft we hads allready bought
  5. If you believe the world map..you will run out of fuel round Srinigar. Simbrief however is much more generous. It is looking a lot more promising. With 4 people on board you are only short 4000 lbs

  7. Thanks for this. Just what I was looking for and must have scrolled over it many times, The max for this is round 60000lbs a bit lower than the maximum allowed but still very useful. Problem is as stated there seems to be more to it than this. You can after doing this go out to the map and adjust it in the fuel options but this is not the way you add fuel to MDG planes. Well I guess the job is not done till the paperwork is done....and we could do with some....in fact a lot...of documentation if this is to keep its name as value..
  8. I am still trying to find in the fmc where to add the tanks. The maximum fuel that can be added in Fuel is about 46ooo lb.
  9. One of the few reasons I was looking forward to the 700 and the forthcoming 600 was as a true long range (7000NM plus) aircraft to enable global operations. As far as I can see this does not appear the case. We are left with a standard range aircraft which would have difficulty flying extended ops in Australia or even Trans Tasman. Please tell me I am wrong as we are left with a big CJ3 range rather than one that competes with the Global 8000 and if provided with a cargo door as many are makes a very versitile combo platform. https://thepointsguy.com/news/vip-bbj-737/
  10. No longer. It used to be the go to feature of PMDG that they provided full documentation, QRH FCOMS etc in original form. Ten they sneakily removed them from all users without any warning later saying that Boeing made them. It did not stop them putting up the prices though. We were told search the internet. If we believed in Piracy we would not have bought the aircraft. It is still I believe the best aircraft availible but a lot of the feel good feeling has gone from the whole product line.
  11. You would be arrested for that now. Don't you know the poor creatures need protection.
  12. exactly....and in this case it seems there may be documentation missing (Understandably though maybe more than should be) and it seems everyone is very willing to say the developer (PMDG) in this case is at fault for not knowing things which may or may not have been documented. I am on the developer's side with this sort of problem as development relies on this. I will say ASOBO seems to be learning and doing a much better job for all concerned than a year ago.
  13. If the SDK is not fully documented it is not fully useable and it is not reasonable to say that PMDG for example is to blame for not knowing or fully understanding how something works. Responsibility in this case for the SDK would seem to lie with ASOBO.
