[0.8.0183] Science Platform rotation does not use power?
Acknowledged, NormalPublic


Rotating the science platform on a small lander doesn't seem to use any power from the power source. This should use a small amount of power, surely?

Steps To Reproduce
  • Build and land a Small Lander (mine is using Chemical Batteries only)

Hi! We know about this. At the moment instruments don't really use any power (only driving around does) because system of power usage and most importantly power recharge is work in progress and it's still not fully implemented. Therefore you can use your vehicle even if it shows 0% energy left. We should put it in an update soon.
