(animated) Solar collector dish

!!actually rotates!!

Its great, its huge. Its a Solar collector dish that produces energy, and rotates around looking for solar particles. the engineering and refurbishment department of San Palma came up with the idea after a plan was laid down to repurpose the old radio telescope building, which was abandoned since 1975. Since San Palma had been struggling to sustain an ever rising energy consumption, the brilliant structural engineers at the department came up with this.

based on the windmill template, costs double as much, but also produces double as much.
so why is it based on the windmill template and not on the solar power template ? because in order for the animations to work the model needs to be based upon a template that includes animations.

Can be plopped anywhere.

Check the video for a test of the animation

Works as a windmill.

Huh. These aren't Solar Collectors. They're half-assed Radio Telescopes pretending to be Solar Collectors. I get that you have a backstory for this conversion, but you converted them into something that can't actually work. Your model has none of the required parts attached to it to make it actually work as as a Solar Collector. Better do some research and try modeling the real deal.

Love the idea and concept but the texture on the dish itself desperately needs some loving.
