About This File

Hey all :)


This mod adds a brand new module to your solar power plant; solar storage batteries! These batteries can store up to 50 MWh and matches the daily power output of the plant itself.


The module can be bulldozed and can be found in the solar power plant's module menu. It will be the last icon.


A video will be posted here soon.


How to install:


1. Unzip the file.

2. Install the .package file into your SimCityData folder.


I used oppie's SimCityPak program to create this mod/building. Go here to download it: http://simcitypak.codeplex.com/releases/view/122600


Enjoy! More mods and buildings are coming!

Nice mod, Capton. :)


Say, now that you're searching around, they showed High Voltage Pylons in one of the demo vids prior to SimCity's release. They were red white. You can be sure that they're also somewhere to be found. Who knows, maybe they can be useful. :)

I have to ask, what is the purpose of this one? As far as I can tell, the Solar power plants already have batteries and they generate the same amount of power at night as the cells did during the day. Is that not correct?

there is a bug with this. I don't know if this is a  or not, but the same bug DOES appear with the mod for Dormitoryforcommunitycollege.package so I assume it IS a conflict with another mod. It's not serious; it just makes you unable to see how many students, for the college, or how much MW stored in your batteries. When I have time, I'll try just your solar mod with each mod I suspect and without that mod, to see which one it is.


Dammit, I took screenshot of the college to upload to their page and screenshot of yours but none of the screenshots show the popup for information on students or, for yours, the power stored in the batteries and how it's bugged. Basically, it doesnt show the power stored; it always shows a red bar (as if empty) but it still stores as it's supposed to.


I'll update this post for results on the conflict. ty for such a great mod!! It's ridiculous you had to build another power plant to run during the night, before your mod :)

Many thanks for your useful mod! But you could not correct mod so that you can see whether the additional battery charged or not? The same goes for your other mods (for wind power, for example), or in the comments was about school / college that does not display the number of students ...
I apologize if this error is just me. Then I will understand, that may hinder modes. Also, I apologize if this has already been corrected.
Just your modes is very useful, but not enough opportunity to see whether the energy of students, etc. very frustrating.
