{1.11.x} Decaying Solar Panels


Recommended Posts

After a few dozen hours in the game i really dislike the challenges of unmanned craft when it comes to power so that's why i made this quick and dirty mod. 

All Stock Solar Panels will decay Slowly Over the course of 5 Years  This may sound very short but for Casual Players this works great you can adjust in the CFG file if you want 

The latest version of module manager is required.

The Energy flow on the solar panels will slowly decrease until reaching zero even in broad daylight.

One suggestion I have is making lifetimes change depending on how close to the sun you are (extreme radiation environments damaging solar arrays)

Nice! For v2 you could add the ability to service/repair/replace the panels to get them working at full capacity again?

Ill look into this but I don't know how hard this will be if anything it will just be you gotta send a kerbal to the panel click a button to repair it and its good again
