As far as the new webpage, there are a few references to "Orbiter 2015" in the gallery captions, like this:

Orbiter 2015 supports terrain elevation....

Tempus fugit! You are trying to finalise the 2015 Release, and before you notice, its 2016. I'll fix those.

I'm no torrent expert, but I noticed that the zip European torrent is called "Orbiter 2016 Core_ ZIP Package", while the 3 others are named "Orbiter2016.zip".
Isn't that a problem with regards to seeding?

They are two separate torrents -- the Orbiter2016.zip torrent is the official one. Where did you get the European torrent? Is one of the mirrors serving it up? If so, that's a bug. The filename in the 'Orbiter 2016 Core_ ZIP Package' torrent is wrong, and it is not one of the official torrents.

EDIT:
I just checked, and the wrong torrent files for the Orbiter 2016 MSI and ZIP are indeed on the European mirror. As a heads-up to all, please use the torrent download links on one of the other mirrors until we can fix the European mirror. The torrent files themselves are small, and downloading the torrent file from a remote mirror will not affect your download speed for the actual Orbiter 2016 core files.

I downloaded the European mirror and looks ok. It's just the name of the torrent. It contains Orbiter2016.zip.

Works like charm in base config. Thank you very much Martins.

Need to get to office to download texture packages and I think I'll need dedicated SSD for that cookie.

Ok, just to be sure, there are no wrong files in the torrents, it's just the torrent file names that are different between servers, right?

Yes, that's right. The file inside the torrent is Orbiter2016.zip. I tested and works like a charm.

Thank you Martin for this wonderful simulator!

PS: I will continue to seed this torrent
