AmpYear Power Manager and Reserve Power. Features: Power Manager and Readout displays. Reserve Power. Emergency Shutdown Processing Computer (and restart) Dark-side EC power usage calculations Realistic EC power production simulation in the VAB/SPH Part by part list of Power Consumption and Production at your fingertips. Highlight individual or groups of parts. The AmpYear Power Manager makes electricity more manageable and useful. Electricity can be used in some new ways. This is the new Full Release Thread of the old abandoned AmpYear by SodiumEyes. SodiumEyes gave permissions a while back for anyone to continue and do what they will with his old version. Power Manager The manager function is attached to all probes and command pods through the power of Module Manager. The Power Manager must be ON for all subsystems to activate/work, this includes RCS & SAS. The AmpYear menu can be switched on/off via integration with Stock Toolbar or Toolbar. Saves all settings and window positions per vehicle to persistent save file. Gives %age indicators of Current Battery capacities, Electric Charge usage and generation. You can transfer charge from reserve to main batteries. Parts that produce electric charge will fill Main batteries first and then reserve batteries. In the Editor and in Flight you can get indications of total power production and consumption of your vessel. You can also get a full list of all power production and consumption parts. Includes Dark-Side calculations for celestial bodies providing EC required to transit teh dark-side of a selected body. Provides Estimated Time Remaining readouts for Main and Reserve batteries. Functions using stock toolbar or Blizzy's Toolbar (can be changed via Settings menu from the Space center). Includes correct power calculations if you have the following Mods installed (but not required for mod to function): Near Future Electrical/Solar, KAS, RemoteTech, ScanSat, Telemachus, TAC LS, AntennaRange. Ability to show Electric Charge in Stock EC units or in SI units. Emergency Shutdown Processor In the settings menu you can set a Power Percentage Shutdown level for High Medium and Low. You can also set default priorities for supported modules in the settings menu. Every part module in a vessel can be assigned a priority (High,Medium,Low), to override the default values. You can select on an individual module level which parts you want included in ESP processing or not. By default when power is re-gained within the vessel and the ESP was previously triggered to deactivate, then parts that were previously active will be automatically re-activated by the system progressively by priority as power returns to the vessel. You can Execute ESP processing manually (manual override button in the GUI) which will cause all parts to be shutdown regardless of their priority setting and the current EC status. ESP still only processes for the active vessel in flight mode. Planned future background processing is in the works. Reserve Power Attach special batteries to your ship to save power for emergencies. Ideal for keeping your probes from dying. Power can be transferred to and from main and reserve power resources. Electrical power generators (solar panels, etc) will re-charge main power followed by reserve power when a threshold is reached. Reserve Power Battery Parts included in several sizes. Auto-Hibernate All AmpYear functions will now continue to run during timewarp up to timestep 7x. Then AmpYear will hibernate. This is due to a bug in electriccharge generation in KSP at high timewarp. A Warning Pop-up will appear and stop warp if the ElectricCharge falls below a set percentage (configurable via the spacecenter window). Show Crew This to show the crew and their roles rather than having to switch to the map view all the time. KabinKraziness An additional (optional) add-on to AmpYear. Go here for the details. Supported Mods: Requests for Mod part support can be raised on GitHub. Speed at which these get added is relative to this equation (SD = MCF * MST) where SD = Speed Delivered, MCF = My Care Factor, MST = My Spare Time. Faster delivery can be achieved by raising your own PR on Github with the necessary code changes. Along with support for all stock EC power usage modules (this would also include any mods that use STOCK EC power usage modules), Ampyear Recognises and supports Electrical Usage by parts distributed by other mods in this list below.

This is a continuation of original AmpYear by SodiumEyes. Full credit to SodiumEyes for the original mod which was covered under GPL license. SodiumEyes did give permissions some time ago for anyone to do what they will with his original mod. Full change log and code can be found on GitHub in the source code link below. As such this mod continues to be covered under GPL license. License: GPL For a comprehensive version checking experience, please download the KSP-AVC Plugin Install Instructions Dependency: You must have installed (NOW included in this package). Module Manager Toolbar - is OPTIONAL. Source Code on GitHub here Completely delete AmpYear folder from gamedata before updating from a previous version. If you like my mods and you want to show your support, then you can support me on Patreon: Download from SpaceDock, CurseForge or GitHub SpaceDock runs and makes mods available to you based purely on donation. If you don't want to pledge to me at least Consider pledging to keep SpaceDock going if you use it. If you also want KabinKraziness go here. If you are looking for the ION RCS parts that used to be part of this mod go here. Support: Be a COOL PERSON and help me by raising bugs and feature requests on GitHub here. I ONLY support the current latest version of my mods and only when they are run under the version of KSP that that version supports (as per the changelog). For support please ensure you are following these instructions. From now on I will NOT respond to requests for support if you have not at least attempted to follow these simple steps. NO LOG = NO SUPPORT. When I ask for a LOG I mean this LOG: KSP versions 1.8.0 and above: Windows: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\LocalLow\Squad\Kerbal Space Program\Player.log - This folder is usually hidden so you should enable the view hidden folders option (more information). Mac OSX: Open Console, on the left side of the window there is a menu that says 'files'. Scroll down the list and find the Unity drop down, under Unity there will be Player.log Aka Files>~/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log Linux: The log is written to ~/.config/unity3d/Squad/Kerbal Space Program/Player.log Whilst I agree CKAN is a great mod for those that can't use Zip tools. I take no part, nor am I interested in maintaining the CKAN mod metadata for my mods. Please don't ask me about it but refer to the CKAN mod thread if you are having issues with CKAN or the metadata it maintains.
