Been enjoying the mod, but ran into a strange issue last night/this morning..

My solar panels are telling me the sun is not visible (so energy is not being created).
I'm on the moon, they worked fine the 1st 2 days running the mod.
Previously (and now) I have let them sit through a full day/night/day cycle, no change. I have opped myself and used the time set day command, no change. (this DID work the first two days).
I have shut off and restarted the server. I have deleted the solar panels and re-added them. They are tracking the sun - They aim directly at it, and they are in clear view of the sun (as I say, they worked perfectly the 1st two days). I read for something in GC you can't have "too many" (someone I think threw a number in the 90's?) I only have maybe 12-15 or so, so if it was for panels, that should not be an issue..

Is this a known issue? Is there a fix/workaround?

Found it. Try updating to at least 588. Also try installing Forge 804. It's the recommended build for now. I've seen where the latter ones can cause issues.

Indeed - Running 643 now, problem resolved. Just FYI also to others - I'm running it on Forge 842, which was the latest when I went file gathering.. No problems to speak of (minus this topic, which was not FML843 related as it turns out) :)
