Hotel26 Posted September 29, 2021 Share Posted September 29, 2021 (edited) Overview: A fresh Sandbox world was created; Commnet activated; nine (9) expeditionary missions dispatched to a selection of bodies ranging from Moho out to Eeloo; creating a total of seventy (70) assets far out into a (highly-warped) future. Objective: Splice the 70 assets (relays & surveyors) into a) a Lab world (with Commnet) and b) an Orbit world (with Commnet) to provide both worlds with full relay capability, end-to-end. Problem: A small sample of assets shows they operate and are controllable in the Lab world but not in the Orbit world. Specifically, an M700 Surveyor, equipped with battery and OKTO is able to Toggle Overlay on demand in both worlds, but [T] will not activate SAS in the Orbit world. The Orbit world is showing Full Probe Control and 96% Signal Strength relayed to Kerbin. It is expected to work. Insight: current UT in the Lab world (which is a highly-warped system) may be in advance of the original, fresh world in which the missions were run. By comparison, the Orbit world UT has only advanced to Y3, D304. The spliced craft are finding themselves suddenly in the Far Antiquity. Comments: I suspect this problem is related to splicing craft far back in time. One effect of inter-world splicing I expect and have verified/confirmed is that the EPH (epoch) orbital parameter for the craft in question will get set to a near-current value (with a concomitant shift in orbital position for the craft) and that lastUT will also be updated sensibly. There should be no problem there. Crew members were removed in the operation. Science commentary, for example, has also been omitted. Only the VESSEL object itself in the craft file was beamed across. I am unable as yet to identify any specific failure related to the time-shift. The problem may be something else, e.g. difference in how the three worlds are configured? I will get to the bottom of this, I hope, but if anyone meanwhile is able to offer some clues or insights, I would be deeply appreciative. (And, yes, I do know this is a self-inflicted wound. In the name of Mad Science, you see...) Edited September 29, 2021 by Hotel26 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
