Cool Orbiter 2016 Keeps Crashing!

Hi guys,

I am new to this website and Orbiter as well! I recently installed Orbiter 2016 as well as the Delta Glider IV and Arrow Freighter addons, with Orbiter Sound included. Since starting to play the game, I noticed every time I tried using the arrow freighter the game would crash. I shrugged this off and started using the Delta IV and now I can fully fly and do whatever but whenever I reenter atmospheres the game crashes. Has anyone had issues with either these addons causing the game to crash or the game itself crashing all the time? I have a fairly high-end gaming rig as well, so I am at a loss. Cheers!

At the moment Dan hasn't yet updated his addons for use with Orbiter 2016. Orbiter Sound works but has been known to cause crashes. And as you've noticed the Arrow doesn't work at all.

If you check the [External Links] down at the bottom pf the page you can find Dan's forum. Most of it is in French, but last I read he was/is working on updating his stuff. Since it's free though and we all have bills to pay, a release date is up in the air.

Don't be put off though. Orbiter 2010 still is an amazing piece of simulation software, and all those addons work flawlessly with it. UCGO (Arrow Freighter) is pretty cool way out in the black.

I am pretty much in the same situation. The Delta Glider IV is my favorite vessel - by now I know it by heart, love to fly and to land it. My favorite deep star vessel is the Arrow Freighter, so... no Orbiter 2016 for me right now.

But as PhantomCruiser wrote: Try Orbiter 2010. It's really good and you get the whole Orbiter experience (ok, without elevated surfaces, but still...).

I like the little radar antenna you could deploy on the DGIV, I don't know about all of the program codes you had to type in for the autopilot, had to keep going back to the manual for the list of codes, after a week I would forget them. Arrow Freighter is amazing too. Hopefully they will get updated, they are of the same quality as XR1-XR5's imho, perhaps more so because the DGIV and Arrow are not similar to each other like XR's are.

Default Opening Orbiter Repair Shop

I have just recently began a service I call "Orbiter Repair Shop." I was having crashing problems with almost every add-on not revised to Orbiter 2016 specs. Finally I couldn't take it anymore, downloaded Microsoft Visual C++ Software Development Kit and began hunting down the bugs. I discovered Microsoft had added a team management program so that work and be divided amoung developers. This was good news to me because I'm a natural artist but a bit slow at programming (but I LOVE to program never-the-less). Right now shop is open but no work orders have arrived. It seems to be getting a slow start.

But how do you expect to community-fix an addon that is closed sourced in the first place?
