The Solar Generator is an alternative source of power supply utilizing the sun to produce as much as 120 Volts.
It can charge an object placed within it or be connected to a larger power grid through Universal Cable. Solar Generators can function with transparent blocks such as Reinforced Glass above them, generating power throughout the daytime. The generator has its own internal buffer which can hold a maximum of 96kJ.
Its output is marked by a red cube facing the player when placed and it can also output through the underside.
GUIEditThe Solar Panel's GUI is simple enough.
On the left there is a Sun/Moon icon indicating whether panel has sunlight access or not (either due to obstacles or simply, night).
In the middle the black panel shows:
Line 1: Energy currently stored in its internal buffer.
Line 2: Sun Boolean similar to the left indicator.
Line 3: Output power voltage.
The slot at the right accepts batteries or handheld devices and powers them up using it's generated energy directly.
Finally the Bar at right is the internal energy buffer Indicator, currently full in this image.
