Beta testing 4.5 most likely.

Rob has probably withdrawn active participation here. Too many know-it-all's trying to tell him 'how it is' with P3D.

I've always enjoyed reading Rob's posts - very informative.
One of the most knowledgeable people around the flightsim community.

Exactly

The general consensus is, that my opinion is the only true and valid one! 😄

I was about to start a similar thread. Pity. Once again the few spoiling it for the majority. We shoud start a petition to convince him to return. Forums not the same without his input. Regards.

There's a possibility he's over here in England helping setup a mega computer for a flight sim enthusiast.

In these parts, Rob is like the Gandalf of the Shire.

Rob has been known as an avid advocate of Prepar3d. The latter is certainly in danger to loose the leading role it had once, and for a reason, so he may well has left in frustration. Which I share with him.

Kind regards, Michael

I’m not naming names as it wouldn’t be appropriate but he was definitely coming over in February. I just posted to try and allay fears he’s deserted the community.

I could be wrong of course but I’m reasonably confident I’m not.

More seriously, I recall him looking for possibilities to relocate to Norway after retiring, which must have been around the present time. So he may have just changed location, and perhaps not only location but "points of interest", too. But in this case he certainly would have told us. I've just found his whole profile is gone here.

I hope it's nothing worse...

Kind regards, Michael

Reading through that  https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/167990-p3d-v44-te-gb-south-performance-problems/

Just makes me sad. 

Rob's a great guy and has huge respect here, seems he has very little over there ......if he only stopped looking at the FPS^^.... it is shameful some of the replies.

Robs a great guy who knows not only what he is doing but shares his work. Top guy.

Look here to one of his latest videos about P3Dv4.4 and its PBR capabilities on the MaddogX. Something to be proud of about P3D:

Cheers, Ed

Wow, Rob certainly does not mince his words but I am sure he is just doing his best to help the rest of the community as always.
