PD, will that be on or off?

sensor/anti sensor bases, dont seem to have any effect on sig, ecm bases make the inf drop pods not show up

gas giants and giant hit boxes, jumping straight from ooi to mhaon in BD+4344 results in collision with the gas giant there, but a pcm made the trip just fine (lag maybe?)

also smacked loakmay with about 4-5 pcms from queenie orbit, hits confirmed, no noticeable damage done

And planets and ships disappearing when you face them from a certain angle.

ive notice another glitch( i think).. i was in the beta mv building a cluster. i was building the main planet, just about to put up defenses and what not and i noticed wth the planet had no power. now i had put up solar gens and then remmembered planets rotated now.so heres the thing if planets have solar gens and rotate they go dead when the gens goto the darkside of the planet. so how about a new generator....... perhaps a antimatter gen or something of that sort. cause if planets go dead for a short while thats easy caps all over the mv. basically rendering solar gens totally useless and not being used by anyone anymore. and fusion gens would take up like aquarter or maybe more of planets to power all the structures so thats no good either.

Thats why your put SOlar Gens equaly around the planet, not on one side. That way a equal number are always producing power, Id suggest mixing solar and fusion gen's also.

How about A Big ass Battery?

That way solar gens can store power during the day to use during the night.
HEck it might even allow the planet to run for a while if the Power is destroyed

Yeah some sort of battery is one of two ways solar generators would become useful again, the other being increasing it's power by quite a lot.

Right now there is no advantage to using any solar generators anywhere, even in combination with fusions. Considering that the most you can get out of 1 solar is, say, 90 on Articus, you then need 4 of them to maintain that 90 power. But 4 fusions = 120 power all the time (and remember you need a CONSTANT supply, a surge of extra power once in a while is useless). Other planets are even worse. Adding fusion to the mix won't help the solars' insufficiency at all.

Believe me I've tested and tested this along with others. Our conclusion is that current solar generators shouldn't be used.

If there was a tiny planet that gave 90 power the way Articus does, then maybe.
