Yeah, but what i meant is that 512 solar panels uses alot more of resources. Mainly time, space and logic.
Precisely. It takes mechanics and thought instead of just ... place and forget.
I did the whole Compact Solars thing once back in 1.4.7. I found it ... unsatisfying. I mean ... having all that power was *great*, but it was ... boring. Having a couple HV Solars outperform a reactor that takes planning, infrastructure, containment, and constant uranium acquisition really seemed to defeat the purpose of bothering with a reactor anymore, you know?
