Player Tips & Tricks

- You can place your solar panels in a ring around the equator of a planet, if you want a consistent power supply without using any Accumulators.

- You can place your solar panels on and near both poles of a planet. This had two advantages compared to placing them near/around the equator: 1) each panel typically produces 30-80% more energy per planetary day because they will always be getting sunlight, even when the sun is at its farthest away point, and 2) it is possible to get a consistent supply of power with as few panels as desired, compared to placing them around the equator, which forces to evenly place panels around the entire equator. It should be noted that, the higher the axial inclination of the planet, the more energy a panel near the pole of the "Summer Zone" will produce per day compared to a panel near the pole of the "Winter Zone". However, the further away the panel is from the pole, the less this effect is visible.
