Yes alot of NASSP 7 snapshots are there of course, AND even NASSP 6.4.3 are able to be found, however, I didn't see NASSP 5.x there, or NASSP 4.x or NASSP 3.x.
By the way the specific location to previous beta releases of NASSP 7 and other important files are located here.
BUT YES... from what I've seen, the NASSP files are in fact disappearing. View this site to see no official links to any of the older versions of files: http://nassp.sourceforge.net/wiki/Versions#NCPP_1.0.
Note: NASSP 5.x is listed to work for Orbiter 2006. I would love to get my hands on ALL the files available at one time on the source forge page for version NASSP 5.x and all associated files. Thank you very much indy91 for the links, research and help!! It is helpful to see these places to research.

However, upon researching the link the NASSP 7 beta you sited here, states its for Orbiter 2006 but its instructions are for Orbiter 2010. Again there is a lack of correct links and instructions that are either obsolete or unable to point to a download for previous versions and correct documentation for them. The instructions on the same page that is supposed to be for Orbiter 2006 P1 says:

"Start Orbiter, go to the "Extras" tab of the Orbiter launchpad, double-click Vessel configuration and then double-click Project Apollo Configuration."
...ONLY Orbiter 2010 has an "Extras" tab so I assume these instructions are for Orbiter 2010

...and on the same release page, it states information on what Orbiter Platform to install to as Orbiter 2006:

"The new beta modules pack is available here: http://nassp.sf.net/wiki/Installation. Please make sure that Orbiter 2006-P1 and OrbiterSound 3.5 is installed."


...but when you click the link, it takes you to the NASSP main install page which shows NASSP 7 Beta 20150804 w/Modules Pack (August 4th, 2015). I just re-installed this beta to a clean install of Orbiter 2006 P1 and Crash to Desktop. ...There was no MeshLand module to disable. I got the following errors in the Orbiter Log file:

Code:

Installing NASSP 7 Beta 20150804 will not work on Orbiter 2006 P1 at least for me it did not work. So..as I appreciate your help, your link to that ibiblio page DOES however make my point pretty clear as to why I am seeking copies of ALL the NASSP files. Because the old versions are disappearing and the links are not up to date nor is the documentation correct. I have decided that I will find what I need, document it myself, and share as I learn.

Again, I appreciate your help though and any other information ANYONE may have.

That isn't a point: we've had Orbiter2010-P1 in zip format for ages now.

Manual ZIP file extraction is the traditional method for Orbiter installation. Download the ZIP file, create an Orbiter folder, and extract the contents of the ZIP file into the folder. That's all, and you are ready to launch orbiter.exe. This method is non-intrusive (it doesn't change the registry or system resources), allows multiple copies of Orbiter on a single system, and can be uninstalled by simply deleting the Orbiter folder.

Default Oops

Oops! That's right I forgot that. The zip file does contain the raw files. I have been using the installer for so long I forgot about that.

Still I like having 2006. Some MFDs and Add-ons wont run on 2010, and it works with older versions of Windows as well as the newer versions, and it works with NASSP 6.4.3.

Incidentally, I just installed NASSP 6.4.3 on Orbiter 2006 P1 w/sound 3.5 and everything works accept I am still not able to find ProjectApolloMFD

Reporting now that after searching many of the files in the beta release section of the sourceforge site I was able to find the ProjectApolloMFD finally. It was located in ProjectApollo_Beta_20070607.zip I will now try and make a Frankenstein NASSP that has both the older NASSP 6.4.3 with the new module to see if that will work. Will report back.
