An idea to make working mutable solar systems but still have the sun "Kerbol" as the center of the universe

Would it be possible to make a forced locked orbit of a black hole around Kerbol and then have the other solar systems orbit that, have the orbit represent this(image gif below)2015-05-19-13h39_41.gif where the yellow dot is the black hole and the white one is other solar systems?

That is easily done. Many planet mods have moons of moons.  And most planet mods that add stars have those stars orbiting Kerbol. Making an actual black hole is the hard part but a mod finally came about to make those a little easier if not just more visually accurate. The impossible parts are:

  • Orbital precession: the orbit path moves and swings over time
  • N-body physics: where objects are affected by gravity from every other thing that generates gravity such as in your example to slow the orbit of the solar system when it passes between Kerbol and the black hole.

the main idea was just have the black hole orbit Kerbol but have the game lie and say the orbit line is from the black hole. even just having it not have an orbit line and have the fake line be a part of the body model

There's a setting for hiding orbit lines too. I don't get the part about having the game say the orbit line is from the black hole. You sound like you want that line hidden but also remain visible. And the fake line bit is completely confusing.

You know when you select the moon there is an orbit line going through the moon but nothing visable on Kerbin, have the black hole's orbit line disappear and have the line going through the sun, in orbits if you think about it just even moving the line to go through the sun would work because it's all perspective.

* visible

So it's like clicking(focusing) on the Mun, and suddenly seeing the Kerbin-orbit-around-Kerbol line? Think about the shape of that line for a moment
