The Solar Collector is a level 1 structure available to both the ARM and the CORE. It provides a constant +20 to the player's Energy production, which is reliable but not very high. It is essential in the early stages of constructing a base, and the player should construct as many of them as possible until better energy production sources become available.

Solar Collector
A simple and dependable form of power generation that uses radiant light energy.

Appearance[]

CORE[]

The CORE Solar Collector resembles a bunker in appearance. When activated, the top lifts up and solar panels slide out of the four corners of the structure; more solar panels then start to swing out, revealing the CORE insignia in the center of the structure. When attacked or switched off, the inverse happens.

ARM[]

The ARM Solar Collector is more simplistic in design than its CORE counterpart. It resembles a pyramid with sides that fold out to reveal solar panels. When attacked or switched off, the sides fold in, protecting the solar panels from damage.
