    While driving, attached light is behaving strange

    I attached two front lights on my buggy and noticed that these lights shine weaker while driving. If i stop my vehicle, the lights revert to the original luminosity. First i thought that i may not have had enough power and added a second generator, but that didn't change it.

    Looks like you have insufficient power, try connecting lights to a separate generator

    Try placing an extra generator and plugging it ONLY into the lights- that way they can know if its power issues or a bug.

    Did you sever the connection to the first generator or was it still connected?

    I think this is a feature. If you connect 2 generators for example the lights dim a lot less. I think it's just that they dim a bit much. More of a suggestion to change and not a bug

    I noticed that too and thought it was because of insufficient power due to the reactor having to power the wheels. Didn't look further into it as I was busy adding more reactors... my buggy can go up pretty steep hills now.

    I wonder if there is any way to see reactor power usage!?

    I like the way how you hook up things to reactors. No everything connected on the grid is powered as in other games.

    3 generators for 4 wheels seems like the best mix. Setting then to fast speed means you fly along

    So five generators may be overkill after all ;-)

    The generator says it produces 80W, the wheel says it needs 35W. So one generator per 2 active wheels should be good for full power.
