Vanilla Scenarios v2.0 (1:12)

This addon is identical to 'Vanilla Scenarios' because of this don't run them at the same time. I repeat 'Vanilla Scenarios' and 'Vanilla Scenarios v2.0 (1:12)' are incompatible with each other as they both add the same scenario files.

Having said this the only difference is time scale which is now set to 1:12.

Requested by Mark Watney.

How to install:

1. LMB click 'Subscribe' above
2. Run TKOM
3. LMB click 'Yes' when prompted about new mods/addons downloaded and game needs to restart
4. After game restarts LMB click 'Addons' menu and enable 'Vanilla Scenarios v2.0 (1:12)' by LMB clicking the box to the right
5. Now exit the 'Addons' menu by LMB clicking 'Back' and the game will ask if you want to restart LMB click 'Yes'
6. LMB click on 'Scenarios' menu after game restarts, select which map you'd like to play solo on and go!

This was built using the test branch running the non-dev exe on game version 0.9.0249.39509.

@FredyC There is a bar graph indicator on the solar panels that shows output. When your placing them, make sure you level them out then turn your body arround holding the panels watching the bars making sure the bars are balenced. Otherwise, you will get storm of power first thing that will charge your batteries then feed your equipment producing extra power you cannot store. What you want to do is to produce enough power so that your batteries are full at the end of the day cycle. Power output of the panels is maximized when you have the left side and right side output balenced. The bar graph is right above the plug and the battery indicators.

I will be updating the regular 'Vanilla Scenarios' and probably include the same supplies as this one has in the cargo truck plus some extra stuff. Just need the time to get around to it.

This version will stay 1:12 the other uses regular Dayscale though.

@Hessan: What do you mean aligning panels properly? Is there some hidden way how to actually position each panel separately? I haven't found about that one. Also true is that I haven't realized that there are batteries and I have deployed them later when I had other machines in place which was probably the biggest mistake.

I guess I have to either wait throught the night now or restart.

@Mr. Monochrome: Yea, I don't like 1:12 either. I suppose you are not planning on updating the addon with regular dayscale by adding same content as this one has?

The best course of action I couldn't really say... I just tend to make mods, addons and scenarios lately. Plus I don't play on 1:12 DAYSCALE all that much as it's slighty too fast for my taste. Sorry for the late reply.

Another thing is are you wireing everything up into a grid using the plug box or just direct to the panels? If you go through the plug box, you get to use everything as a single power source.

Solar Panels do include batteries built in. Are you aligning your pannels properly? you should orient the solar array so as to even out ther power production between the left and right panel using the display on the panel to maximize your power production durring the day.

No ideas then? I think these scenarios definitely need at least one of those batteries (MRTG?). I do realize there was no need for those in original vanilla scenarios, but since even a printer needs power it makes it kinda necessity.

I am wondering what's actually best course of action on a first day? I mean there are only those two solar panels and once night hits, I can just stare at the stars, right? I feel bit stuck since there is no night skip and no reason to roam around in a truck (unless there are other drops I am not aware of). I am still pretty much newbie to all this, finished only a story mode so far.

Ok thanks, I haven't actually realized this is different workshop item. I was subscribed to the other one. This one looks ok so far.
