Solar Panel-0.png

Solar Panels are used to produce a slow, but infinite supply of Power to various machines found in the mod pack such as the Quantum Extractor, Powder Sifter, Arc Smelter and much more.

Crafting[]

The Solar Panel is crafted at the Power Station and requires

Mechanics[]

While the Solar Panel is in the world, it checks light levels and the environment and adjusts its output every 10 seconds based on the following criteria:

  • If the Solar Panel is underground, submerged in liquid, obstructed by a wall, or in an area with a light level lower than 0.2, it does not produce power.
  • If the Solar Panel is located below y=500, power output is equal to the light level (full daylight and no artificial light sources produces a light level of 1.0).
  • If the Solar Panel is located between y=500 and y=700, power output is equal to 2*light level.
  • If the Solar Panel is located between y=700 and y=900, power output is equal to 3*light level.
  • If the Solar Panel is located above y=900, power output is equal to 5*light level.
  • If power output would otherwise be larger than 12u, it is reduced down to 12u.

It is also recommended that you pair these with Wind Turbines to help round out their power output.

Trivia[]

  • Solar Panels will work terribly with artificial light such as light produced from torches or lights found on your ship. Even Chromatic dirt placed in the background has been nerfed to not affect them much. This exploit once allowed easy power.
