Ah no worries mate, good on you for keeping things going though. So just to check the issue is because I am running an older version of KSP?

 

Hmm I don't recall now... you could try 1.4.4.0 or 1.4.5.0 they were for KSP 1.2.2 (get the older versions from github).

No luck I am afraid, it might be some horrendous conflict from one of my mods (maybe RemoteTech 2 or Kerbalism). Oh well, thanks for trying

So I decided to run a test, now using KSP 1.3 and Ampyear version 1.4.9.0 with 0 other mods but still have the same no power produced issue. 

Again the output log:https://www.dropbox.com/s/zltlytte4oenesz/output_log.txt?dl=0

Is there some thing wrong with how I am using the plugin?

 

I'm not sure what your problem is? Your power is at 100% and so the solar panels are not producing any further power from looking at the picture everything looks correct.
Your vessel has a capacity of 10 EC units.

Well I think I may be going crazy or have misunderstood something...because even if my craft is charging up the Ampyear keeps showing Power prod as 0.

You can see here the craft is recharging its batteries from 75% to 77% but I still get Power prod (total power prod of the vessel) as zero. It is my understanding that it should give me a dynamic number indicating how much EC I am generating in real time based off things like solar panels and RTGs, etc..but I have yet to find it to give me a non-zero output.

I see errors... nothing AmpYear.
I started up 1.2.2 with AmpYear 1.4.6 and it is working fine for me. I put a simple probe core with a few oxstats on it. and it shows producing EC.
Have you changed any of the settings for AmpYear from the default? does it show EC production in the editor for vessels?
You've tried without any mods at all? and removed everything except the squad folder from GameData? reinstalled AmpYear and tried again?
If you do that and still don't see any EC production can you go to the AmpYear settings at the KSC and turn on Debug Mode then launch a vessel and send a link for the log from that please.

I didn't change anything other than a few of the priorities in the Emergency Shutdown settings but I was still getting the 0 reading before I did this. I did a clean install to KSP 1.3 and ran only the latest AmpYear mod but it still didn't work (refer my third post on this page and its output log). 

In the VAB I can see power production if only the manager is selected.

The second I switch to the Dark-side and solar calcs it shows that I am producing nothing (which I assume makes sense since I dont have RTGs and not producing power on the darkness)

This again is at launch showing the batt recharging but still showing no production, also not that the Ampyear icon in the toolbar is red (dunno if that is relevant in any way or if it should be green).


As requested here is the output log using the debug mode: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rcfso4x14tpce80/output_log.txt?dl=0

One addition:

the red color used for text (also in other mods) has a bad contrast to the grey (blueish-greyish) background.

A lighter red or even a mid-to dark orange could be better.

A color chooser would even be better.

Using "normal" 1920x1080 resolution with 100% UI (on a 32" screen) and still badly readable.

Oh you mean the text color in the UI? Feel free to submit a Pull request to add a color picker.
Or, raise a request on github.
