#1
Thumbs Up 
PULL REQUEST DETAILS



[balance]
About the PR
Chem Dispensers - Minor power usage every time a reagent is dispensed.
Chem Heater - Uses power high power active and low passive power.
Test Fixtures (Pitching Machine, Impact Pad, Electro Box....) - Use power when active
<s>Solar Panels - Use minimal amount of power when rotating</s>
Recharge Station - Uses power scaled on occupancy
Computers - Adjust power usage to scale with object setting instead of constant 250.
Rechargers - Pulls power based on power_usage
Conveyers - Pull power when active

Plantpots - Minimal power draw and required power for UI and signal usage. [**balance**]
UV Grow Lamp - Medium power draw and requires power to be active. [**balance**]


Adds admin debug menu to examining power utilization per area. Shows a list of all machinery that have a power_usage value and lists all use_power() done in previous power_net cycle. Offers JMP and Varedit for each item.

Why's this needed?
Spreads power usage throughout the station instead of it being limited to a few departments. Trying to leverage existing power usage.

They do have power.

Power is on a per-area basis and space, by default, is fully powered.

Edit: one very easy way to prove this is to realize that the gardengear vendor still works on the russian ship despite the lack of an APC
#6
Space has power. The more you know~
#7
Just add minisolars to space stuff like the russian ship. Problem solved
