I'm going to make a new base in SMP. I got plenty of everything after a month gathering ressources, crafting solar cells and vice versa.
I'm thinking about building a casual home on the surface and then have a big underground base with all machines, farms, some nice redstone contraptions etc.
My problem is that most of my power source is from solar panels, and they aren't quite easy to hide from surface view.
I was thinking I could cover them up with non-opaque blocks (like torches, glass and reinf. glass to mention a few), but that doesn't work very well.
I guess the solar panels work this way; they need to be in direct sunlight with light level 15. Am I right?
If you guys have any suggestions, feel free to comment below.
