Solar Panel Power System

Description
Tested with DayZ v1.22

Even after the apocalypse, doing your part to protect the environment is still important. Now instead of having to rely on a noisy, smoky, petrol guzzling generator get yourself a RedFalcon Solar Panel Power System and enjoy free electricity from the sun!. The system can be purchased as a boxed kit from your local trader and set up at your base (as long as it has an unobstructed view of the sun or at least the sky). You'll need to install a truck battery in order for the system to provide you with 24/7 free electricity. This solar panel can accommodate up to 4 devices plugged directly into the system (or many more if you use power strips).

Note that due to the materials used in the Solar Panel Power System (concrete pad and such), once it is unpacked and deployed it can not be dismantled and redeployed. Where you set it up is for keeps unless you want to demolish the panel using a sledgehammer or pickaxe.

Hello, I just installed your mod. Good job. Can you perhaps add a function so that the solar panels automatically turn off the lights when it is daytime? Thanks and greetings from Germany.:steamhappy:

System works fine, big fan! I got a little problem with Cable Reel. Lifetime set on 40 days but despawning after 2 days (with flag active) any solution for that? :)

I've tried everything to get this to work, watched videos. Any help is appreciated. Setup kit in sunlight, attached truck battery, attached cable reel, attached construction light as a test. Go up to solar panel and it gives me a prompt to turn on, but it doesn't actually turn on. Test with construction light on/off and no light coming out of construction light.

My Solar panel wont turn on or give power. Battery is connected. Other devices on generator work fine.

The battery is just there to make the system work, it doesn't act as a battery recharger

Does the panel charge non-fully charged truck batteries that are attached to it?

Of course, just configure your Types.xml to spawn the kit as any other loot item.
