Haha, no kidding! The 2001 build I used was very playable, you know... :p

It was certainly an interesting venture into the past. I'd love to crack open a copy of that old 2000 build and have a peek at it, but I'm afraid nobody seems to have one.

Very nice video,

P.S. Does anybody know where I can download previous orbiter versions?

Try looking at post 2 in this thread.

I rummaged through a bunch of archived internet pages and here's what I found out:

The first version of "Orbiter-forum" opened on May 9, 2001.
The first addon for Orbiter ever released on July 28, 2001. It's "Apollo Bases v1.00" by Bryan Coiffman.
The first spaceship addon released on August 3, 2001. It's "Apollo CSM" by Thomas A. Bateman aka Moonbeam.
The first version of TransX MFD released on October 4, 2002, and at that time it was called "TransferX".

The first external client for Orbiter is D3D9, which is still in use.
The first sound add-on for Orbiter is Orbiter Sound, which is still in use.
The last sound add-on for Orbiter is XR Sound, which is designed only for Orbiter 2016.
One of the users that don't have add-ons for Orbiter 2010 but have add-ons for both Orbiter 2006 and 2016 is @kulch.

To be fair, I remember Kulch's stuff working just fine for me in 2010.
