Luzivras Factorio Power

Adds Solarpannels and Accumulators MK 1-8, Mk1 = 8 Normal pannels/accumulators Each Mark, means times 8 in power (additional cost on higher tears, to make a balance for the space)

a How much power for each tier?

I am looking to replace my nuclear setup with solar, but I don't want the footprint of vanilla. This looks like a viable alternative.

To make sure I understand correctly, is the following approximately true:

  • Vanilla solar panel/accumulator = 42KW avg per day cycle
  • MK1 = x8 = 336KW avg
  • MK2 = x8 = 2.7MW avg
  • MK3 = x8 = 21.5MW avg
  • MK4 = x8 = 172.032MW avg
  • MK5 = x8 = 1.4GW avg (same as about three 4-reactor nuclear plants)
  • MK6 = x8 = 11GW avg
  • MK7 = x8 = 88GW avg
  • MK8 = x8 = 704GW avg

  • These solarpanels and accumulators behave like a bunch of the vanilla ones together. In other words, they cause zero hit/degradation on UPS (unlike nuclear which eventually causes a problem). Is this correct?

  • The size of these solarpanels is roughly the same as that of vanilla solar panels, correct? The whole point of the mod being to save on footprint instead of flooring huge sections of land. Yes?

If the above is correct then your mod could easily power a huge megabase while using far less than one chunk of space. Just what I have been looking for. I hope your answer is yes to all of that :)
