    What would be sweet, is if a magnifier lens SENT was made. One that once the laser goes through, it doubles in size and damage!

    I thought that would make a "focused beam". I have yet to see sun going through a telescope to make a huge laser. A small laser, yes, a death-star beam, no.

    I want those lasers in wire! But not for killing but for type of ranger. Which don't show length between prop and ranger. Only detect if someone pass the beam.

    Please, fill me in with info, where did you find that little ball?? :D :D :D

    Because it's not in the sents

    Edit:

    And By The Way, how do you change the bounce emount? At The Moment it only bounces at four to one laser

    Edit the file Laser STOOL 2/lua/entities/gmod_laser/shared.lua and change the value at line 19.

    Edit:

    :siren: I uploaded the fix for the two known bugs (look the first post) :siren:
    Link : http://lua.madjawa.net/LaserSTOOL2Fix.zip
    You must have downloaded and installed the Laser STOOL 2 in order to use this, just extract to your addons folder and say YES if it asks you to overwrite folders!

    I'm leaving soon, and I will be back around August 18. So report bugs here, suggest new features, and I'll try to add them when I come back :D

    Sadly it's just a helibomb with a changed material. The wide laser comes from a small emitter inside the ball.

    I love SVN versions, but as you post updates rarely it wouldn't be necessary. Lua King! Not god, because it's a bit simple, but that doesn't mean that it's easy. Keep doing these addons, I love them. Thank you!

    Oh, and some light modificators, like magnifier lents would be good too. (But a magnifier or make the light smaller and harder or make bigger and weaker...)

    suggestion...make the mirrors have a wire output for whether they're reflecting lasers at a given time. then you could do fancy looking tripwires and laser alarm grids...that don't just outright kill people.

    sound cool?

    also, for epic wins and awesomesauce in a spraybottle,
    if anyone remembers the game C&C Generals...I see potential for a Particle Cannon network in Spacebuild...forget ion-cannons. anyone who can calculate the angles involved in multiple mirrors to reflect a giant laser beam from straight up from the planet, to straight down to the target, via more than two satellites....automatically....is a true WIRE GOD.
    I'm going to go try that. if I do it, I'll post a vid on youtube and allow you to kiss my feet and hail me as your god.^_^
    deal?

    It should bounce off any prop with the cubemap material.

    For some reason, the laser doesn't break wooden crates or anything, it just makes the noise. Please fix it! (Please!!)

    You probably noticed this, but when you put the laser on a not so heavy prop, it pulls it, also, when you make the laser face straight up while attached to the prop, it will sometimes freeze it and you can't pull on it untill you re-phys it.

    Anywho, awesome STool, love eet. (Oh, My friend wants to know if you're gonna make any more reflect models or make a stool to turn props into said reflector) Bye!

    If the laser uses a normal "lua-bullet", it will be able to go through event horizons. If not, then only if the coder implemented it.

    Yes, please.

    Sorry, I made a little mistake in the fix. Please redownload it.
    :siren: So everyone that downloaded the Laser STOOL Fix zip before this post, please redownload :siren:
    Or else you will not be able to break wooden crates and other breakable props

    Sorry for the inconvenience

    Except that completely defeated the purpose of madjawa redoing the laser to use traces. Using bullets would be terrible and nowhere near as good.

    I picked up a headcrab with my phys gun and put it in the lasers beam. The laser disinagrated the headcrab but it did the same with my phys gun.

    Could you make some kind of receiver for the laser? So we could make trip lasers?

    A perfectly vertical reflector does that just as well.

    I agree! That would be handy...

    The more beams input into it, the thicker/more powerful the end beam?

    Perhaps make a version of this (or make it a checkbox option) to have it do Gcombat/CDS damage? That way you could actually use it to destroy things (yay for epic space battles).


    I will say this much, after playing around a bit with this new laser and an auto turret I made, I've discovered that it kills very effectively, and the wire option to ajust the range is a big help. :D



    Hoping this will some day be able to fire through stargates, instead of just be affected by the shields. :)

    IDEA!:

    Look at the 'Stargate Shield' code. For the shield, it allows the player which owns the shield to not get effected.

    So I was thinking, why not do the same for the laser stool? A Check box which allows the player to not be effected by his/her laser(s)? It would be the perfect base 'gate' which only you could enter. (Maybe the same for the players' props?)

    I don't mean to be a pain, but incase you haven't noticed it, when you put the laser ON a prop, it pulls it. and if you make the laser face straight up, it will freeze the prop every now and then.

    Again, and i won't stop saying it, Awesome stool.
