Agree. It seems we havent heard anythng since Sep 28, more than 2 months ago. Has anyone tried to contact the developer via email? If nothing serious has happened in his personal life, I find his silence worrying. He used to be very active here and always chime in for an anwer.

Yes, sent several emails.

Offered to manage the spam on this site, for example, but no response.

Also contacted him because the P3D Manager told me he was interested in doing a case study or at least featuring the Vega. Didn't hear back.

Fearing the worst.

Me too..Don't know what to believe. According to his profile, he was last online in the forum on November 16. So I guess a life and death importance issue wouldn't allow time to visit the forums. On the other hand I cannot believe that Vitus work was abandonware and he made all this to vanish one day out of the blue. We really need an explanation.

What is really happening? The forum is full of spam, a big mess. And Vitus has disappeared. Does anyone knows Vitus real name? We can try find his real life contact information. I hope he is fine in his health.

His real name is Otmar Nitsche and he lives in a German town on the boarder with Poland. I've tried several sources without saccess, but found the process a little creepy. I felt like was invading his privacy.

He hasn't posted on any flight sim forums online anywhere since November, so I fear we've lost him, reason unknown.

I check back here periodically hoping for a resurrection, but so far nothing as you are aware. He was an extraordinarily capable developer who decided to devote himself full-time to Wing42, so I doubt he just wandered off and simply abandoned the community.

Me too Tom. I'm hoping for a happy outcome and that Otmar is at least safe and well. With such a challenging solo project, the risk of burnout must be rather a large one, so hopefully just some time is needed.

Regards,
Nick
