Quote from: JayNic on August 31, 2014, 02:29:36 AMHey all. The title is pretty self explanatory. But basically: the ability to specify the construction of solar panels on various roofs. It'll free up ground space as well as making sense (it seems to be the way that solar power system are used today for localized use.Related to roofs: I personally find the "create no roof region / remove no roof region" system pretty - (to be honest) - pointless. Seems like it makes logical sense to make us build roofs ourselves like we build the rest of a structure. We build walls, floors, but we have to manage some hokey zones for roofs.ps Loving the progress. Alpha 6 got me back in after passing over a couple alphas. Great work!

Anyways only when you dig into mountains. Would your house stand up to a mortar shot? No, it would blow up half of the house.
Quote from: inman30 on January 30, 2015, 10:43:42 AMPerhaps, it just depends on how big the house is... But yes shrapnel is dangerous. Germans would shoot trees with explosive rounds strewing stuff everywhere killing people. But yeah i want to see more pillboxes etc in rimworld. (note) Also mainly is just about what type of mortar shell it is.. If it's a 40 mm (grenade launcher) round then yeah it wouldn't do a lot of damage but a 120 he? yeah it would do a bit more then that...

There�s even a metal roofing innovation called a Solar Sandwich.
