Hi Orbinauts, just a quick question.. I notice in Orbiter 2016 there is a Generic Camera in modules that you can enable in the launchpad... But I also use Orbiter 2010 and notice it is not showing in modules. Does anyone know if this is new for 2016 version?

Hiya, I do use Orbiter 2016 but I miss using Dan Steph's DGIV and Wideawake International which isn't compatible with 2016 so I use 2010. Just can't see the Generic Camera option in there

IIRC, Generic Camera is a feature of the D3D9 client for Orbiter 2016.

@N_Molson, We should not judge what version of Orbiter users choose to use. If folks using other Orbiter versions besides 2016 bothers you, don’t answer the thread!

FYI, I still use 2010 as well, I enjoy deep space work with the Arrow.

Hi @Max-Q , thank you for your reply...that was what I was thinking..seems like it is something that turned up in 2016 version....thought I might be missing it, but makes sense now...I've seen an add on called Camera MFD, so might take a look at that ...might now work as I think it was for 2006...but no harm in trying...it's just that I liked the Generic camera when I was docking to the ISS...looked great on one of the MFDs as I was <100 metres from docking....yeah, I do like 2010 as well...seem a lot more stable to be honest....thanks again guys

Orbiter 2016 is not "less stable", I can guarantee that... Sorry to do some "fact checking". It is not going to crash unless you install incompatible addons.
