Description
Free clean endless energy from the ever present sun, this has an attached battery pack so the panels work at night.

It is clean and stack-able as far as I know.

Mod file ID = 671591278

all items in this mod can be picked up, renamed, destroyed and all panels are toggable so you can have power on or off.

There is one that is structure (flat) mounted ONLY, and one that is Ground mounted (but will also mount on a structure if needs be, there is now also a wall mounted panel

which obviously mounts only on structure walls.

PLEASE NOTE WHEN PLACING A WALL PANEL IT IS RECOMMENDED TO USE AN INTERSECTION TO START OFF THE CABLE RUN, THIS IS BECAUSE OF THE SNAP POINTS, I HAVE TRIED TO GET THEM RIGHT BUT THEY DO NOT SEEM TO WORK CORRECTLY WHEN PLACE VERTICALLY.

Remember if you like this mod then please rate it so others can see you like it!

They go into the Game.ini file. Just edit it as to how you want the mod to behave.

If you find any problems with the mod or have ideas to put forward please feel free to comment.

Changes to v2.0.2a

New wall mounted panel added.

as of 09/06/2016 this mod has been updated to the new v242.7 game patch.

As of 09/08/17 game has been updated to the v260 game patch.

Crafting costs for each panel....

Metal Ingots = 150
Electronuics = 75
Cementing Paste = 50
Crystals = 100

Crafting cost for WorkStation

Metal Ingots = 25
Wood = 150

This I feel is a fair cost for free endless energy.

UPDATE INFO..........

Changes to v2.0.2a
New wall mounted panel added.

Changes to v3.2 (updated 28/10/2017)
As requested I have added custom power cables and a junction box so these can be crafted before the vanilla cables become available, also added pick up option for these with

a 2 second timer, these are available at the same level as the panels (level 40) and will cost zero engram points. Although these cables do say for use on Solar Panels they

can in fact be used with all power generators, they act in exactly the same way as the vanilla ones except for the pickup option which the vanilla cables do not have.

Changes to v4 (Updated 31/10/2017)

After careful consideration and a couple of complaints I have removed the electrical cables from the mod, to compensate I have incresed the engram learn level to level 50,

this allows you to learn both the electronics and electrical cable engrams before learning the panel engrams, all panels plus the workstation are now learnable at level 50.

The wireless version of this mod is available at the following link...

PLEASE NOTE........

DO NOT RELY ON THIRD PARTY UPDATERS ON SERVERS AS THESE DO NOT WORK 100% OF THE TIME, ALWAYS USE FTP UPLOADS TO REPLACE OUT OF DATE MODS, THAT WAY YOU KNOW THAT YOU HAVE THE LATEST UPDATE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR MODS, THIS IS THE MAIN REASON FOR MODS NOT WORKING CORRECTLY.

PLEASE DO NOT ADVERTIZE YOUR SERVER IN THIS AREA THERE IS A SEPERATE PLACE FOR THESE AT THE FOLLOWING LINK......

The wall panel WILL place but it is a little finicky when between wall sections, but if placed smack in the middle of a wall section it does place fine. And if it started working fine just by moving it up means that there is a problem with a mod further down, check all your mods are up to date.

Soon all panels will need to be placed outside, because it is dependent on direct sunlight these should not be placed indoors, I am also working on day/night cycle.

LOL, I have the structure pannel placed ontop of a wall, as the wall mount one refused to place.
drmskr Jun 4 @ 5:40am 
Yea, I moved the mod higher up in the mod list, and it started working just fine.
Bolisaris  [author] Jun 4 @ 3:37am 
I have just checked this mod on both my server (The Center) and SP mode (The Center) and all panels place just fine, remember the structure panel MUST be placed on a structure such as a foundation or floor and the Wall Panel MUST be placed on a wall the Ground Panel can (at the moment) be placed anywhere.
Bolisaris  [author] Jun 4 @ 2:25am 
I was using these just yesterday on my server and they were placing just fine BUT just to verify this I will check again both on my server and in SP mode and report on here, but it still looks like a mod out of date problem to me, remember do not rely on third party updaters most of the time they do not work correctly. Watch this space for a report after testing.

I can't place them either. Everything up to date.
LeLouvla May 24 @ 1:51am 
OK! I will see that. thank you for your quick reply!
Bolisaris  [author] May 24 @ 1:46am 
This is usually a sign of an out of date mod somewhere. Make sure ALL your mods are up to date and updated correctly, these panels are working just fine on my server

Hi Bolisaris. I have a problem, I can not place the solar panels (with or without power cables) and it's the same for the work station ... Thank you for your help.

I find your Google translated English hard to follow but I think you may be commenting on the NEW wireless panels and not this older mod, if it is the newer one then there is very little (yet) I can do about it, if it is this mod you are commenting on I have looked and all seems well, newly added appliances WILL activate as soon as connected.
