Im running RSS, and finally got my first satellite in orbit. The list remains empty, but I see the Ap and Pe dropping when I am running the craft. Is your list empty too? 

The list is empty by default, when you first open the Orbital Decay menu. You can enable/disable the listing of different types of crafts with their respective buttons.

Clicking the button causes the the window to empty, even the settings and vessels buttons disappear. Logs show:

Ill double check if i installed solarcycle thingy.

Update: Yes that was it. Works as a charm. Stuff at 200km drops in 16 days, 1000k in a 700 years ;-)

Is this compatible with 1.6.1, and has the issue with changing LAN to zero fixed in this version?

I compiled it against the 1.6.1 version of the game, you can find it in one of the previous post. What do you mean by LAN changing? Is it sudden, or over time?

How do you make the list items appear?

It's a bit clanky solution, but by default it's empty and you have to click on the vessel types, if you want to add/remove them from the listing. It would probably be a bit more user-friendly, if it would list all objects, and you could filter them like you can in the tracking station.

please do because I have no idea how to make the ships appear, and when I click the stuff, the toolbar, it freezes up and nothing is shown and can't be turned back

First off, I have used this mod in the past. I really like this concept. It makes you think a bit more about making Satellites that will last. I am thinking about adding g this to my current save.

 

I have a few quick questions. Is this mod still under development? Does anyone know if it is working in 1.7? Have any of the old bugs been fixed?

 

Thank you for a great little mod.

@kalmor small change to default

GameData\WhitecatIndustries\OrbitalDecay\plugins\PluginData\Settings.cfg

SIMULATION
{
	RealisticDecay = False
	24HourClock = False
	DecayDifficulty = 10
	PlanetariumTracking = True
	PlanetariumDebrisTracking = True
	NBodySimulation = True
	NBodySimulationConics = True
	NBodySimulationConicsPatches = 100.0
	NBodySimulationBodyUpdating = True
}
RESOURCES:NEEDS[!modularFuelTanks&!RealFuels]
{
	StatKeepResource = MonoPropellant
	ResourceRateDifficulty = 1.0
}

RESOURCES:NEEDS[modularFuelTanks|RealFuels]
{
	StatKeepResource = Hydrazine
	ResourceRateDifficulty = 1.0
}

@kalmor

After starting a new career, in SpaceCenter, after I clicked the stock bar icon "Orbital Decay" (which btw got no tooltip when mouse over), the window opened and after clicking anything the contents disappeared and this was written to the log a lot of times, but stopped then:

NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
  at WhitecatIndustries.Source.Settings.ReadResourceRateDifficulty () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  at WhitecatIndustries.Source.UserInterface.SettingsTab () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0

(Filename:  Line: -1)

This is on KSP 1.6.1 RO RP-1
Both mods are installed ofc (OrbitalDecay and SolarCycleSimulator).

Full log and stuff:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/o29n93z7vsuqawo/output_log.txt and stuff 2019-06-01-03.zip?dl=1

Edit;:

Ahh, damn, grr. Perhaps it's my fault because I also added StationKeeping - forgot that OrbitalDecay got its own station keeping.
So I have to reboot KSP and see what happens.

Hmm... both of my Solar Cycle and Orbit Decay icons are white (in KSC view and at the Tracking Station), so something seems wrong.

KSP 1.6.1 / RP-1...

Here are the logs:

Thanks!

Update, real decay time is 100 days just the forecast is broken

I don't even see craft files in mines how do you in yours? Got any tips? I'd really like this to add to my rss to make my launch manifest of 2k sats more challenging

Unburying this in case anyone comes along to notice it and want to give it a new home. @Sir Mortimer has there been any off-forum discussion on doing something similar in Kerbalism at some point?

Do you mean implementing orbital decay and/or station keeping in Kerbalism?

Discussion yes, but it won't be done. Certainly not within Kerbalism, I would strongly suggest to keep the functionality in a different mod.

well I heard @Papa_Joe came back recently but not sure if he's still interested in maintaining this. Giving it another bump to see if anyone else is interested, especially in considering the modeling research by @Arrowstar that he integrated into KSPTOT

Quote

Take a look at this paper (http://farside.ph.utexas.edu/teaching/celestial/Celestialhtml/node94.html) for how I'm doing the drag effects, particularly equations 10.148, 10.150, and 10.151 (I still need to figure out how 10.149 works and if I need it).  These looks like they're a better model than what WhiteCat was doing originally.  If you have the time, I'd suggest giving this implementation a go in the mod.  I'll have my MATLAB code updated on Github in a few days with my implementation and you could use that as a template/pseudo-code.  It's very straight forward.
