Another sim of interest, and also free, is Orbiter....Take a look at it here:www.orbitersim.comWords can't even begin to describe the way this sim fills the niche of space travel....John, KPHX

Thanks for the link John. This looks like a wonderful addition and a real change-of-pace. I've only played around with it for an hour but I already share your enthusiasm. (And I thought landing a 744 was hard.....)Trip

I think the exoflight project is probably history--and it was the project I was looking forward to the most. :(

For those that still didn't downloaded ORBITER. a small screenshottaken from author's site.Amazing, this guy worked alone during two years and his sim is absolutely GREAT. Also the animation is really as smooth as silk.this make me deeply think about fs2002 where so many programmer worked during so long time... and I would not qualify animation as "smooth as silk" even if you get 30 fps.Dan
