[1.8.x, 1.9.x, 1.10.x] Realistic Power Draw

Recommended Posts

It's always bothered me that animations didn't use any power.  This addresses that issue.

This is a little mod which will make animations (stock parts for now) use EC.



CKAN soon

That's a pretty nice addition to the game. How much power will an animation consume?

Nice idea indeed.

One silly question: If a ship runs out of battery, all animated part on it won't function?

I peeked at the code on Github. It looks like between 2.5 and 7 EC per animation, with 5 being the mode (average). Based on my knowledge of coding, which is slightly higher than my ability to read ancient Sumerian, I would guess that animated parts affected by this code would not function with EC.

Nice idea, but I encountered a bug. In Editor, when I try to toggle service bay's doors, it doesn't happen and I get this log error:
