I join my voice to all here saying thank you Dan for the hard work. I still enjoy Orbiter 2010 because of your add-ons. I plan on many hours of fun with the new version and new features. Cheers.

I'm using both. Orbiter 2010 (because of Dan's addons) and 2016. And I love to see Dan's work in Orbiter 2016. But I can wait. Yes, it's hard to wait, but I know that it's not Dan's job.

Thanx Dan !!

We must consider that the current context is not easy for everyone but I am sure that Dan will come back when he will get some available time.

As for Martin, though he has not updated Orbiter Beta since September 2019, he seems to be still alive as I have discovered that he had published a scientific article in last november.

I hope he will continue to patch Orbiter Beta  :)

Whoa that is rather recent as Orbiter timeframe goes! I wonder if the next Orbiter version will see advances in capabilities of the engine as technologies have changed significantly in the last decade.

I hope so too, but seeing how he hasn't logged into OF for about 14 months (March 2020) doesn't make me too optimistic :\

Martin will be back. If I remember correctly, there was a long absence in between Orbiter 2006 and 2010. I'm sure Brexit and COVID are keeping him very busy.

I really hope so - to be clear, I'm certainly not blaming the Doc or Dan for their other commitments, far from it - I am just really looking forward to improved versions of the "things" they developed, whether a new major Orbiter release or (especially) the updated addons shown by Dan.

Especially the new Arrow Freighter in O2016 is looking to be a thing of beauty.

When I am sad, I remember that one day there will be a release of UCGO for Orbiter 2016, and it makes the pain go away :beer:

May I just say that the combination of Dan Steph's and Martin Schweiger's work is still unparalleled in terms of its educational worth and simulator quality. It's such a shame that the upgrade to Orbiter 2016 caused so many problems in its development, I keep hoping that someone will fix the issues its had since no other developer has stepped up to create something in the same spirit.

I've been one of Dan's long-term paying customers, having brought his FS Passengers a few times over the years - all I have to ask really is why hasn't Dan Steph, Schweiger and Doug Beachy from the XR Fleet come together to create a paid product? If bugs were ironed out and it got published on Steam I'm sure this would sell like hot cakes, the modding community would grow and you would get the financial reward you deserve for undertaking this work!

In any case, I hope all is well with you Dan. We're all looking forward to the return of UCGO.

Hi !
I've spoken about this with Dan himself a few months ago, and the problem was that Dan didn't earn any money during the time he spent developing for Orbiter 2016. And he wasn't exactly happy to see how Orbiter 2016 stays without any upgrades and maintenance. We (the french-speaking community) don"t have any news from him since a long time now, but as Face said, he's probably developing for FS2020 and other things, as to put something in the fridge. The idea of a  commercial simulator is not a bad one for him, but he "disapeared" and the topic was left. It's frustrating to stay without knowing about him though.  As you all, i can just hope that he and his family are well and happy.

Dan worked on Orbiter 2016's development? This news to me! Makes me even more surprised that OrbiterSound wasn't a part of the vanilla experience. But I guess not being paid probably contributed to this as well.

Oh! I see, thanks for the clarification! Also in regards to this "FS2020" you mentioned before as Dan's side project, what is it exactly?

                                                  :wor: I love you, man!  :wor:

 :arg: At least my wife is happy having me back on earth....  :arg:
                :arg: ...doing the plumber work....  :arg:

Hello here.

I don't know if we're saying goodbye to Dan, and i hope we won't. He's the author of Passengers X for flight simulator, something that gives him some money, and he needed some. It's just a hypothesis, as i (we) don't have any fresh news since a loooong time. As Corondal says, let's chill out, cross fingers and give him some trust and patience.  :beer:

@Cougar : do the plumber my friend, an angry wife is way more dangerous than a Supernova !  :beer:  :badsmile:
