Orbital Velocity

Recommended Posts

Someone explain to me how everything in my save deorbits when I start shooting a timelapse, everything was in a perfect orbit and has been like that for weeks, and the ISS I started on 4 days ago and finished today is now gone, everything just randomly deorbited in the middle of shooting a timelapse, someone please explain this to me.


here is a clip of what happened <snip>



And that did happen to every single craft and space station.

I can't see your movie. I've never tried hot-linking to discord so I'm assuming the forum or discord doesn't support it.

Edit: I was able to jump through the hoops to watch it and with no numerical information I can only assume the periapsis is under 70km.

Note stuff will "orbit" forever down to about 20km so long as you're not in its physics window. That would explain why it lasted weeks if you were, say, watching it in the tracking station.
