Does anyone in this community have a personal contact with Dan? If something bad happens to him, so that we at least knew about it.

corondal, Despite the fact that I registered recently, I have been watching this forum for two years now, and therefore what you wrote here, I know all this very well.
BUT the year 2020 (or rather the COVID-19 pandemic) reminded all of us very well that none of us is immortal or invulnerable. Yes, I admit that I may be somewhat paranoid, but I wouldn't be expressing my concern about Dan here, if it wasn't for COVID-19.
I don't care about release date.
I want to make sure ONLY for that: If the WORST happens to Dan BEFORE release, his work for Orbiter 2016 will NOT BE LOST for us.

I think that Dan might be busy adapting FSPassengers to MSFS2020. This is what (also) brings him some food on the table, not his Orbiter work.

Hi here ! Hallo Face !
Happy new year to all of you !
The problem is we don't have ANY news from him, nor here or in MP. I don't care about the addon, i'm one of those who only would like to know if he's OK. For the rest, we can wait more weeks or months, it doesn't matter.

Six months from the last time Dan was online here - and no signal from him after that.
And here is a post from FSP forum on November 28:

Excuse me for asking like this, but... are you sure Dan is even alive now?

Same for us here, unfortunately no news.

I regret all the more that I had many constructive exchanges with him during the update of Orbitersound.
And I confess that I miss his presence here and his little messages

Excuse me for asking like this, but... are you sure Dan is even alive now?

To tell the truth, no one knows. I hope that yes, it's true that we could have a doubt ...
I think he's moved on (at least for now) and will reappear one day (or not!) surprising everyone, like the previous time.

The only thing to do: respect his choice, and ... wait ....
:zen: Dannn can you hear me ?

Well i would say, if no, why his websites still running? The fact that they exist, let me hope

Hi ! Like Jacquesmomo said, no news for anyone. As Jacquesmomo, i've spoken a lot with Dan in PM about the updates of UCGO, and he disappeared suddenly. Me and others have sent a few PM as to have any news, because we all feared about the pandemic, but nothing. There's maybe one hope : the update pops up for Xmas (tadaaa !), like the last one. But i won't bet on this. Sadly, he didn't let UCGO in open source, like he stated sometimes. How can this website still be alive ? No one knows.

One must be patient. We each have our personal situations going on.

StarLost, the problem is that only Dan himself can let us know that he is at least alive. And if it's not so, then we will not even know about it. And then we, being completely unaware, will patiently wait for release that will never happen.
As far as I understand, Dan does not have any page on any social network, and no one on this forum knows him personally.
I would really like to be wrong about that ...
