Would be also cool to make water/wind power plants supplying moon/planetary bases. Maybe also some coal, oil, geothermal or nuclear ones?

    We really need this. When making trips to the outer solar system, the sunlight should be weak and your probe would hardly hang onto life because of low batteries, and on the surface of another planet, if it has those resources, then it would be a good addition to a surface base, ship, etc.

    @fifcie with the coal/oil/geothermal/nuclear the devs would have to add drills and storage tanks. So it would essentially have multiple ideas put into one. @AndrewGarrison could you see that fusion is added in this list as well

    I was going to suggest this myself, glad you already did Fifcie! I agree, we need more powerful power-generation methods in spacecraft. Batteries and solar panels are not remotely viable for sustained ion-thruster-powered flight over any significant distance.

    Oh, that's cool. Sounds even more fun if we can actually craft this ourselves :)

    RTG should be included, Fuel cell should be included.
    About wind, I guess there was another suggestion for a rotor part that it would allow to be used to rotate a part, as a motor, as a generator, etc.
