    it strictly shows how important is a "proper" component layout o_O

    You are switching between two schematic versions. That has nothing to do with component layout (i.e the physical positioning of real-world components) :rolleyes:.

    The schematic layout has absolutely no effect on the simulation results for the same schematic connections.

    GP(R)Solar_TEST-C.png , moving diode first :: GP(R)Solar_TEST-C_a.png , moving capacitor first :: GP(R)Solar_TEST-C_b.png ← pay attention to this , ha ha ha
    -- the MP42B-py is .model MP42B-py ako:2N5087 PNP(... BF=80 ...) , .asc & .plt in a zip if there's a doubt i tweaked the images

    exception makes the rule

    Curiosities as to what V1 with label net F3 is connected at circuit? Found ZLR at D1 Cathode, and an APP by resistor R5..

    Just an wandering thought, are the power source associations not tied at the same principle construct within Spice itself? Have had instances with patterns deleted of designs that I no longer wanted to use that had spare power sources running with no connection that actually showed effort on its output from the main circuit, tho the placement of the components would differ from what I have seen in term, rare.

    ... or have you possibly stumbled onto Spice cheat codes that result in special functions, rather than square, X, L1, up, down, left, right, left, triangle, square? :eek:
