    When outdoors, if you stand on top of a solar panel, it will give your character an indoor environment and temperature of 71 degrees F, regardless of outdoor temperature.

    Pictures attached showing me standing next to the panel, as well as on top of the panel. Temperature goes from 21 to 71 degrees F.

    Minor issue, but happens every time with this panel. Have not tested with all versions of the solar panel, but it definitely happens with the flat one, as shown.

    Is the panel labeled as airtight?

    Yes. This particular panel is listed as air tight.
    I just went into creative and only the default panel, and “solar panel with stand horizontal” are listed as air tight false. All other variants are true, and most will recreate this atmosphere.

    Seems if you can position your body within the bounds of solar panel block, it’ll give you indoor atmosphere.

    Thx. In this case it is probably not a bug, but kind of a side effect how ‚airtight‘ works: if one side has O2 the ‚full block‘‚ has O2 .. or at least close to the model. There is no real inside/outside tracking in the game at the moment so this is a little workaround/side effect. This means little O2 gems are added to the ‚outside facing‘ area even if this is in space. Hit N and show O2 to see that.

    I placed a bunch of them side by side, turned on O2, and I'm not seeing the O2 gems, screen shot attached. But that's ok. I understand what you're saying on how the blocks are made.

    Screenshot says it all, really. Character on that solar panel is "inside".
