New Horizons Addon Help

Post #1by PlutonianEmpire » 28.10.2012, 01:21

Ok, being the rebel I am, instead of using the SSC for Pluto that came with the new horizons addon on the CML, I wanted to instead use the timeline feature for the existing ReferencePoint barycenter, "Pluto-Charon".

Code: Select all

Modify "Pluto-Charon" "Sol" {
   Timeline [
      {
         Ending 2457023.5
      }
      {
         Beginning 2457023.5   #jan 01 00:00 2015
         Ending 2457388.5   #jan 01 00:00 2016
         SampledOrbit "pluto.xyz"
      }
      {
         Beginning 2457388.5
         CustomOrbit "pluto"
      }
   ]
}


Problem is, nothing is happening to the system. NH keeps missing it by 10 million km. What am I doing wrong?

Yep. That's the one.

Right now, the only way I could get it to work was to define an entirely separate new Pluto for the addon, instead of using modify or replace for the default Pluto.
