Abstract. We shall discuss some phenomenologically appealing features and challenges of heterotic orbifold compactifications, aiming at a theory of particles and cosmology. Obtaining globally consistent string constructions with properties akin to those of the (N)MSSM is made now trivial by using "The Orbifolder", an open-source computer code. The models constructed this way offer plenty of resources to possibly arrive at observable physics.
