Orbiter web: Le Monde d'Orbiter

Orbiter users are wildly international, and the French-speaking community is especially active, with a number of talented add-on builders and a strong presence on the web. I can still read French fairly well, but thanks to tools such as Google Translate or Babel Fish, there is no reason to miss out on a useful web site just because you don't read French. Here are a few pointers.

  • DanSteph is the author of the essential add-on Orbiter Sound 3.0 (bilingual site).
  • Mustard has just announced a new home, "the web site of Francophone addons" (mostly English) with a lot of great stuff. The picture above is from the extensive simulation of the Kourou launch site by Papyref and Mustard.
  • Orbiter News is a kind of blog or Orbiter news site with a lot of information about add-ons, including pictures and links to tutorials and missions. I just found this and it's really good (not exactly sure who the author is).
I know there are other Francophone Orbiter sites - you can find links to them on the above sites. To all the French-speaking Orbiter community: merci beaucoup!
