    Discussion Tile making

    The old base tile format still works with both legacy and default 2016 format. However it will be floating at the old altitude 0 level, corresponding with Earth's curvature, and not placed on the actual terrain altitude which maybe above or below the Earth's curvature level at that particular...

    Question STS simulation for Orbiter 2016?

    I believe this fits your request better. SSV is more of a continuation of Space Shuttle Ultra, it goes more in depth than STS2016. Whereas STS 2016 is a replacement for Shuttle Fleet for Orbiter 2010

    Roadmap proposal - Orbiter development

    Hmm, this means another feature is left over pending for reimplementation in OpenOrbiter, because I remember orbiter 2006 and 2010 showed the shadow of the moon moving across the earth's surface I think something will be done about the trains and monorails and beacon arrays and solar panels and...

    Roadmap proposal - Orbiter development

    Yes there is a solar eclipse scenario included with orbiter by default. Atleast the MOGE client supported casting of celestial body shadows in previous Orbiter versions, have not checked with orbiter 2016 or open orbiter yet

    Roadmap proposal - Orbiter development

    IIRC, Orbiter does simulate the casting of shadows by celestial objects on other celestial objects already. So you can observe solar eclipses from Earth's surface, and from orbit, can see the Moon's penumbra and umbra moving across the earth's surface. Conversely, lunar eclipses can also be...

    Discussion Proposal New version of Orbiter

    @jameswebb. Have you taken a good hard look at whatever is happening on the forum, and orbiter development in general, nowadays? Or did you directly jump to the conclusion that Orbiter is dead and fading away? Good things take time. Orbiter is keeping up with the times. In its own way. It...

    General Question Help me - I have a bit of confusion on current/future Orbiter version

    I believe this was created by the forum administrators, by making a fork named OpenOrbiter which pulls commits from the official Orbiter repo. This fork is supposed to be the distribution fork. And the official...

    New Release D3D9Client Development

    Thanks for the reply, kuddel Regarding the version and new features, I remember jarmonik posting about remaking the shaders and adding/reworking features and graphics effects in the client, and wanting to leave behind the d3d9 client codebase for orbiter 2016. I was wondering whether that new...

    Problem Tiny XR2 panels in 4K resolution

    I remember there used to be 3 different versions of the 2d instrument panels of the XR series vessels optimised for 3 different resolutions, like 1366*768, 1920*1080, and 3840*2160? There was an option in the configuration cfg for each XR vessel for setting the panel size used. Is this feature...
