    Gaming Space simulator: Best sim on mobile or orbiter knockoff?

    I did find an abandoned website which had a game based on the orbiter engine, though It has been ever abandoned. It should be in the thousands of bookmarks I have archived. I heard that the MFDs for Orbiter are compatible with it also.

    Question Which Addons Work With Orbiter 2016?

    I do love 2016's graphics and improvements, but don't mind getting 2010 graphics and more addon gameplay. It reminds me of FSX and other graphics of the era. The nostalgia is nice.
