Stock Wind Turbine And Old Fashioned Windmill

Recommended Posts

I have made working, stock Wind Turbine and I think this is the first Wind Turbine posted on here! I hope you guys will enjoy this! I made two versions non-moveable and movable. Major credit to @JZ6 For the stock bearing, this would never happen if not for him.  It is 213 parts. EDIT!  I have now made one of those Old Fashioned Windmills they use on farms and stuff to pump out water. It has the same controls as the other Wind Turbine. Do NOT worry about the vehicle on the  Moveable Old Fashioned Windmill as you can just recover the vehicle.

Controls

1. press space to undock

2. then press '[' or ']' to cycle to the bearing,

3. Control rotation by pressing the keys 'e' or 'q' to spin the bearing!

4. Press space again to engage the SUPER SPEED ENGINES!!! (Not available on the old fashioned Windmill)

That's nice :-)

Now we need someone to create a mod that converts rotational motion into electrical energy, and an update to the weather mod.

Yeah, pity it doesn't generate power..... or does it?

 

BTW.... they did have wind turbines.... in one of the add ons... that added radar buildings on the hills.... not sure which one...

Now we just need wind added to the game! I mean it is a kind of flight sim after all. So we need some wind sooner or later.

Also, nice idea.

Vwoump, vwoump, vwoump, vwoump. Wind turbines are hypnotic!

 Great build man, I would love to see it in motion or a few of them seen in the distance from the KSC, that would make for a really cool screenshot.

Clearly this needs a few blowers.... Or the venerable rotating antenna thingy that I cannot remember the name of, y'know the perpetual motion one that uses no energy.

 

Nice build mate.

Your wish is my command! I have made a very short laggy video just for you. That was like 850 parts. (How do you embed videos?)

Sweet thanks! I will watch immediately. It should be automatic, just press return after typing/pasting the link.

Oh, and the video is private.

Pressing return didn't work but I changed the video to unlisted so it should work.

I just pasted the link directly from the video and it worked. I will let you add it to your post above.

Oh and, awesome!

Awesome, man! Do you think you could make a stock electric fan, too?

Trying to make this:

Is that even possible? I also might make a old fashioned windmill.

UPDATE! 

I now made a Old Fashioned Windmill like on farms and a moveable version it, and thanks for all of the support! :D  I didn't know you guys liked this so much!
