Mars for Less: We Shipped!
As a software project, it was only natural that Mars for Less for Orbiter would be late, even though it was essentially done back in August 2006. After the big push for the Mars Society paper that summer, I think we just ran out of energy for tying up the loose ends. But thanks to Andy and Mark, MFL has finally "shipped!" Mars for Less V1.6 (24 MB zip file) is now available for download over at Orbit Hangar. Be sure to read and follow the included documentation on this, both for installation advice and usage tips, and note that it does assume pretty good familiarity with Orbiter. A forum discussion thread has been started here.
