So my previous version was 2.7.12 and I just updated to 2.7.22. However, my solar setup is now outputting a fraction of what it was before.
I'm aware the tin cables say they lose .2 EU/t per block but I noted I didn't have any losses until 5 cables, so they were all hooked to lengths of 4 cables with no loss. I'm aware this was kind of "gamey" but it was working.
Now, however, my solar panels have a fraction of the efficiency. When a solar panel is directly attached to a batbox, they output .6 mEU. One length of tin/copper, and it drops to .4. 2 pieces of cable, .2. 3, and I receive no output.
Is this working as intended? Can you just not use solar until you have glass fiber? That seems to be the only cable that would be capable of actually forming a network without immense losses. Of course, even with glass cables, the starting output is only .6, which is a 40 percent reduction from the previous patch. Were they just nerfed?
