I really don't know how this happened, but I'm getting a very "interesting" paintjob on the DG VC :

Anyone else experienced this ? Can reproduce it with stock Orbiter 2016 or D3D9 client...

Wow.... same here... could it be an April 1st thing?

I was thinking the same... very likely. Amazing

Yep:
C++:
    time_t lt; time(&lt); struct tm *st = localtime(&lt);
if (vcmesh && st->tm_mon==3 && st->tm_mday==1) {
if (t) oapiSetTexture (vcmesh, 17, t);
}

... and MartinS forgot to release it properly so there is a memory leak... luckily it's only once per year.

Incredible... an explanation for "potential April 1st bugs"

Yeah it had an "english feel" that lead me to think it was a MartinS thing

The dark un-illuminated FWD flight deck of Atlantis (just something I tried out by setting the Material Emission values for all the panels to all zeros). Image taken near orbital sunset for proper sunlight illumination of the panels and screens. Can't see a thing on the Aft Flight Deck (AFD) due to shade.

In a simulator that can represent something with as much space as the Solar System, only God, The Probe, and Martins can know how many surprises await within that Matrix-kind of simulator.

The decoration indicates that it is like the Belle Époque of aerospace simulation. Now I want to fly to an old and richly decorated train station and listen to the BBC via shortwave.

Doing a complete re-fly of Apollo 7 in NASSP to test my new fuel cell code. After a bit relearning and some coaching, I managed a fairly nice TPF. Looks awesome doing all this out the windows of the new VC.

Testing strange and unusual launch configurations in Orbiter 2010. Thanks to UniversalCargoDeck. By the way we need UCD back in Orbiter 2016, it was very easy to make attachment points.
Clicking on the image will take you to MediaFire so as not to load unnecessarily on the O-F servers.

Then some free flights. Freedom is the word that defines Orbiter without a doubt.
