Epoch (UTC): 21 July 2019 23:02:48 orbit number at epoch: 2064
I am trying to sync the ISS with its real position but it is either a few thousand kms ahead or behind its real position (but on the correct track). This is today's (21-07-2019) orbital elements and this is what I've got in SE:
In the manual it says that the epoch must be in Julian days but I don;t know how to convert it from UTC days* * Correction I found a site that does that (thank you internet & google) - I will report back..
Thanks fot that Doctor of Space, I think this version was on the old forum but had not been reposted here. I've tested it in 0.990 and it does work fine. The HST is a great addition too. I remember I had these on 0.980 but after a hard drive failure and reinstall, I lost it and never found it again. ( I even thought I had imagined the whole thing or seen these models elsewhere since I
Here's a comparison, the new one on the left side, and the old one on the right side. So you can see it's very similar (with some diferences, such as the cupola windows shutters are open in the old one and closed in the new one, the new one has more soyuz sapcecrafts docked...) and of course the new one, being heavier in file size and graphics ressources, benefits from more detailed structures in the truss section (more polygons and vertices) and the texture/materials are also more detailed. So that's up to you whether you prefer the lightweight version or the heavyweight, depending on what your CPU and GPU can handle. But you now have the option.

The cupola is definitely a goodie to have so I'll try to modify the "hi-res" model to have the shutter open and be able to use it. Here are some views form the cupola.

Pretty simple to just throw in a transparent single pixel image.

Doc any chance we may ever get this ISS?:

These are all from your post here. And the Enterprise wouldn't be bad as a cherry in the cake

Recent updates completely broke that detailed Enterprise so I never released it
That ISS was random sml edits to the above linked model, doubt I still have them.
There is a really massive Trek pak available in Discord though

Jokes aside how difficult it would be for a complete rookie like me to transform it again?

Is it possible to reduce the size of the entire spacecraft in the editor, and not just individual modules? This option is currently disabled.

Well, in this case, the ISS is a single huge module, you can select the edit module option and resize the whole station as you wish.

Is it only me or does anyone else have this problem? When I go to ISS, and when it pops out in my FoV, I get a sudden yet continuous framerate dropping. It drops to 5 FPS, and it keeps that framerate till I look away (and the framerate comes back to normal immediately). I checked my Task Manager, my GPU 3D Engine load suddenly dropped to about 1/3 when the ISS model popped out.
↑That's when it's normal (See FPS at top left corner)
↑And that's when it gets nuts (See FPS at top left corner)
