    So this is something that has been talked about a bit by a couple of friends;

    Basically: like the following crude mockup, have two sliders to set how long days/nights should be

    well then solar power would be OP because if night never happened than whats the point of having any other way to generate power?

    :edit: oh and there would be no need for batteries in a defense turret/base

    Ehm, solar and batteries should scale accordingly i think.

    If you decide to skip days, solar power is pretty useless, but batteries will still be useful as you can charge them from a furnace generator.
    Likewise; if you skip nights; batteries still makes sense for non-anchored techs.

    Solar power is already OP. But so what? Even if this were possible in SMP (which doesn't exist yet) you'd have the option of playing on a different server. If you prefer to play with long nights or shorter days to make solar less OP you'd have that option. Personally I don't see how it could be an issue to you if you don't like an optional feature that could make the game better for others.

    I like the idea, though I think the length of nights are fine as they are I'd like days to be way longer than they are now (3x as long).

    I would like to make this day shorter so weekend comes sooner.

    I never said that batteries would not be useful for mobile techs, just that they would be useless for turrets
