Wireless_Solar_Panels_V1.2

Description
PLEASE NOTE, AT THE MOMENT THESE MODS WILL NOT POWER ANYTHING ON RAFTS OR SADDLE PLATFORMS.

Just a wireless version of my Solar Panel Mod.

At last here it is, after much hair wrenching and not just a few swear words, I have finally come up with a working wireless version of my Solar Panel Mod, so far I have checked this in SP mode and it seems to work just fine with just one exception.......

If the panel is already running and you place a new structure (for instance a lamppost) it will not automatically power up, it will say 'UNPOWERED' but if you go to the panel and change something for example range distance or you power down the panel then power up it will become 'POWERED', but items already placed before you power up the panel will automatically become 'POWERED', I will look into this but it is such a niggly little thing I am not treating it as urgent.

These panels are based upon the Tek Generator but have been tweaked to work as normal (was not as easy as it sounds believe me), I have not yet looked at battery power as I need to work out how to get the panels to power down at dusk and power up at dawn, once I have that sussed I will look at battery power but for now they work 24/7.

The 2 mods...

This one 'Wireless Solar Panels' and the original 'Solar Panel Remake v4' seem to work well together so there is no need to unsubscribe from one to use the other, good eh! I have given the wireless panels thermal cells a different colour from the normal ones so you can distinguish between the 2.

If you find a problem with the mod please inform me (politely) I do not respond to impudent remarks, remember I am not a scripter what I do is based on already made items, I learn as I go along. (take that as you will but it is a fact).

I no longer play this game and cannot in all honesty say that I will be supporting my mods in the future, this along with long term ill health I doubt I will return to modding the game. Sorry folks

Does anyone else have problems with new produced solar panels since the genesis patch? My new produced panels don´t do anything.

Oh nooo. This is a sad news (cancer). I wish you very very much a good success with the healing. Yes, take all the time you need. Totally understood, and most important!

I am at present fighting peritoneum cancer so it will be some time before I am back, I am going into The Christies Cancer Hospital in Manchester soon for treatment so hope to be back in maybe 3 or 4 months ready to battle with the kit, see you all then hopefully.

Not sure how much you've looked into the parts with making it automatically turn off at night and such, but would like to mention that S+ does have some code you could peek at on their lamps/torches since it's open source.

Other than that, I believe I forgot to tell just how great this mod's been. Been using it since you first launched the old v1 cabled panels... and it's still a regular in my mod list. Thank you for making it.

Yes, some idiot stealing - that can happen. But too many would know, that your mod is the original. Even by date it would predate the copy.

It would be however a much greater and far more serious problem for your fan community, if your items disappear and therefore functionality and structure would disappear from many games.
