How so?
User avatar #71 - hydraetis (06/15/2015) [-]
Well for one solar is expensive as hell, both to set up and to maintain. Secondly, I pretty highly doubt solar power would be enough to power the grids in places like the UK and New Zealand where it rains all the damn time, or then in places like Canada where you might get plenty of light during Spring and Summer but you're not going to see very much of it during Autumn and Winter.
User avatar #73 - Greevon (06/15/2015) [-]
That's a good point. Rainy places wouldn't be ideal.

I remember watching a documentary that suggested solar panels in the road though, and it said that as the technology gets cheaper and more efficient, in places like the USA it could be very ideal because of all the sun everywhere and it could be easily incorporated into the road system as more are constructed or repaired.

The point is that it's the future. We won't be using the solar panels we have now. I mean, think about how unfeasible nuclear power was in the 1920's. Maybe solar isn't the future, but whatever is will definitely be renewable and non-contaminating.
User avatar #256 - admiralen (06/15/2015) [-]
that documentary is retarded though
if you tried to implement those glass roads with solar panels in them the cost alone would be more than the entirety of usas wealth
not to mention you would have to make an entire new power grid and that glass is slippery as hell (dont talk about those little bumps they make for traction, those wear out pretty fast)
User avatar #268 - Greevon (06/15/2015) [-]
nevermind i cant read. they're glass
User avatar #267 - Greevon (06/15/2015) [-]
They aren't glass. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_Roadways

And I've already addressed how expensive it would be, but again we're speaking of the future, not 12 minutes from now. Tech advances and becomes cheaper at an exponential rate.
User avatar #291 - admiralen (06/15/2015) [-]
also, the only test they did on them was like 1 tiny square and they very very slowly backed half a tracktor on it
so theyre not even proved to be efficient when new
User avatar #75 - hydraetis (06/15/2015) [-]
The only reservation I have about the road integration is the maintenance that would be involved. I don't know how most places are so my opinion isn't going to be accurate for everywhere but at least where I live, the roads are beat up to hell so adding solar panel maintenance to the road maintenance bill sounds super expensive.
User avatar #77 - Greevon (06/15/2015) [-]
Mostly it would be for country roads out of the way. Urban environment wouldn't be ideal, because while some routes like 66 have huge loads of traffic, all of it is moving along well enough that you don't get shit like "oh, this truck that was idling just dropped 14 tons of iron rods onto the pavement"

As for feasibility, you got me there. Right now, the best estimate to replace all roads in the US with panels is 56 trillion dollars. The company that makes them says this is inaccurate, as the cost per panel in large assembly is as yet unknown, but right now they're 10,000 each. I think it's a good idea that's ahead of it's time, but maybe it'll work. "Smart roads" and "solar roads" and shit like that is becoming a big talking idea with scientists and engineers the past decade. I think there's something to it.

I would be curious to hear what you might think the way of the future is. Everyone seems to have their own idea, after all.

BAD cgi is a lot cheaper than practical effects. If you try to make it realistic it consumes tons of time, work and money. Thats why most movies go for shitty cgi in the end.

he said something like that:

I wouldn't say it looks bad. Many people use them simply to make nice looking screenshots.

I wouldn't want to try to play that shit though.
User avatar #51 - hydraetis (06/14/2015) [-]
What I do is I just choose an ACTUALLY light preset then just tweak the settings myself from the in-game menu till I'm happy with it though day/night interior lighting is forever a god damn nightmare. Would really like for the interior day/night cycle to be fixed up properly so I'm not walking around taverns in pitch black darkness when its supposed to be 1:00pm outside

Well yea I probably chose my words poorly.

I just couldn't find a proper example of the one I used that just went way over the damn top so I stuck that one on.

But yea, a lot look fantastic in the screenshots and talk big game in the description but in actual application, if you try to run them you're likely just going to be playing a super pretty slideshow.
