NMS - Solar / Battery Calculator

I decided to do a bit of research and code up a little something.
This will calculate the amount of Solar Panels and Batteries required when given an amount of Power Consumption (kPs).

I think this may be useful for some of you out there :wink:

With some help of another Discord user, a bot command for minimal calculation is now available on the NMS Discord as well:
!power x (where x is consumption in kPs 0-50000)
The result includes a link to the full version for full details.

Woot! :crazy_face:

Good work … btw what does kPs stands for in NMS ? As an engineer the units of power consumption that I use are watts or Kilowatts/unit of time …?

Well, the image above pretty much says it all :crazy_face:

It is assumed to mean ‘kilo Power per second’, although the ‘seconds’ are basically the minutes counting down in in-game time, not real-time. This I believe, is used as the in-game tick duration which is close to a real-time second.

I have checked various planets where a full day/night cycle lasts exactly 30 minutes real time. This would mean that 1 minute in-game time equals 1.15 seconds real-time. My calculator is based on the in-game tick, with a full day resulting in 1440 ticks. This actually makes kPs a bit awkward, as it uses the in-game minutes as if they are seconds. But hey, it’s a game after all …

Thank you for the enlightenment !
