    Announcement Bad RAM is bad

    Turns out the server had a bad memory module in it. That was the cause for the server outage this morning and late last night. It has now been replaced and appears to be working again for the time being. I'll be keeping a much closer eye on the server for the next few days. Hopefully I'll be...

    Announcement Expected outage today

    The server will be taken offline for 15-30 minutes some time today for a RAM upgrade. I'll be posting again once the upgrade is complete.

    News Forums and OH back online again

    Sorry all for the sudden downtime just now. With the recent DoS attack revealed for Apache, I thought it would be a good idea to get this patched up sooner rather than later. We should be good to go once again. Thank you all for your patience. If you notice any incorrect site behavior...

    News Server Back Online

    And we're back again (well, have been for some time now). For anyone who's curious about the downtime earlier today, the cause was a DDoS attack against a wide range of servers at the hosting facility which holds this server. We were not one of the targets, but the attack managed to bring down...

    Important OHM and O-F Account Merge Details

    Yes, that time has finally come. I am currently in the process of merging OHM and O-F accounts. There are going to be a lot of changes on Orbit Hangar Mods and I know there will be a lot of questions, so I'm going to outline what will happen here. UPDATE: The account merge is now complete...

    OHM and Scenario Uploads - Censorship?

    Every time some user uploads a "simple", "stupid", or otherwise lacking scenario, tutorial, or playback, I receive numerous complaints from users. If not by direct e-mail to me, I see the complaints posted on the forums here. While it's not all too surprising that people don't appreciate just...

    Announcement Server Changes - Now more accessible from public locations

    I have made a few changes on the server which should make both Orbit Hangar Mods and Orbiter Forum far more accessible from public locations such as college campuses (assuming that they don't have the sites blocked). I was previously limiting the number of allowed connections per IP address...

    Orbit Hangar Mods to support external links - Looking for a volunteer

    I am adding a new feature to the web site which will allow database entries to be made which point to add-ons hosted on other web sites. Put simply, what this means is that Orbit Hangar Mods will be indexing all Orbiter add-ons no matter where they are hosted. This will make Orbit Hangar Mods...

    API Question Vessel Cleanup never called?

    Maybe it's just me, but as far as I can tell, my vessel's destructor is never being called. The reason why I say this is that I have allocated a few texture resources using oapiLoadTexture. If I change those textures in my vessel dll and completely restart orbiter, the old textures still load...

    Project EVE Ship Conversion

    There was a topic a while back about converting EVE ships for use in Orbiter, but unfortunately the person who started it was unable to get the ships converted properly. I decided to give this a shot myself on Friday (which poured over into Saturday). After a truckload of pain, trial and...

    Project Orbiter Web Installer

    I've written a web installer for Orbiter and I'd like to get a few opinions from some of you out there before I post it publicly. Right now the installer is just a 227 KB exe which guides the user through a simple installation process. The user is given the options of which packages to...

    Orbit Hangar Mods - Important Announcement

    What's going on: Some of you may have noticed lately that the Orbit Hangar Mods server has been going offline, is very slow, or just simply seems entirely unresponsive.

    Orbit Hangar Mods new Layout

    I've been working for the past couple of days on a new layout for the Orbit Hangar Mods web site. I thought I'd share it with everyone here in hopes of getting some constructive criticism on what I have so far. You can see what the new front page of the site will look like here: (EDIT: There...
