    That sounds like prism towers on Command and Conquer... That'd be pretty cool, but then you'd have people put like 10k damage lasers point at each other and end up having a laser that crashes GMod due to overload of damage. But if you could have a damage cap... That'd be good. Example, have a damage cap of 100, have 10 lasers with 10 damage, all point to one laser and make 100 damage. Then have two 50 damage lasers. You get the idea...

    Last time I tried to spawn a laser on my server I couldn't delete it so some people decided to try and cover it up. :P. I posted this bug earlier but I don't think you saw it OR it was something wrong with the server.

    Dumb question but; Did you try the remover stool? Clean up everything?

    Also, Is your GMod a pirate version? That'd probably explain why if you do.

    Tried both of those. And I'm admin but it still didn't work.

    I've got the retail version of GMod to otherwise I might be a bit more in hiding.

    There should be an option to make it pass objects and leave a scorch mark or something... Then covering it up would be a greater challenge, hehe

    I said that in one of my last posts. Like, it shoots a prop for X amount of seconds, then the laser goes through the prop until the prop moves. So it's like a hole.

    No free edicts is caused by this addon. I'm 100% sure.

    How are you checking the max bounce thing? It might be that.

    Edit:

    Cause I was thinking it might check for how many laser bounces it does and then it removes if there's too many. The no free edicts error is caused by having too many entities. So it has to spawn lots of laser entities somehow.

    Just debug it and see what happens.

    Hmm.. i would like it if you could look into the "no free edicts" error, it's the only thing stopping me from hosting it on my server. However it might be difficult, as you seem to sound as if you never get it yourself, making finding the problem a bit tricky... but I suppose that's what we are here for =D

    I set my max bounces to 256 just messing around and I found a bug.

    The 'damage' laser doesn't get reflected after so many bounces, Yet the visual laser does.

    The damage beam (invisible) just goes straight through the mirror. The visual beam bounces of the mirror as normal but doesn't do any damage.

    This is obviously not an urgent bug, It required a LOT of reflections, I'm not sure how many exactly though.

    Can you fix really hard FPS drop when 3 or more lasers working?

    I have a suggestion, a stool that can turn any prop into a laser reflector. That way we could more easily make things like laser spectrometer like machines and stuff like that. :D

    madjawa, I can get someone to set you up a SVN on googlecode. Or at the very least we can get you an SVN on our current Doctor Who SVN.

    I found a bug! *gasp* yeah when I stand too close to a laser which disintegrates an antlion, it takes away my current weapon, even the tool gun, using kill in console is the only way to get it back.
    Have you tried "give weapon_physgun"? There's an addon somewhere in garrysmod.org which lets you spawn all HL2 items as pickups (all weapons/items + Zombine grenade and Physgun).

    I have a suggestion, a stool that can turn any prop into a laser reflector. That way we could more easily make things like laser spectrometer like machines and stuff like that.
    Well, what should happen if you fire a thick laser on a concave surface? It would create a VERY big, nearly continous cone of extremely thin lasers which would lag like hell.

    Shoop da whoop!

    This is epic, but I miss the spark ending effect.

    For the next version: Could you add an ability to change the ending effect?

    LUA king!

    Is it possible to add a charging delay to the laser? I mean, charge up, fire for a specified time then cool down before starting the whole procedure again? (if you specify a zero chargeup time, it switches these things off)

    well this would be pointless... because having an option to turn it off just defeats the point, i mean... lets face it: when you can have a LASER that can shoot constantly and kick some ass, why would you want to limit it??? I mean, i'm not saying that it would not be cool, but if you learn how to use wire then it is quite easy to do anyway. it would just be an obsolete function that would waste time coding.

    Yeah, Just wire it, I do things like that all the time with weapons. Like i made a minigun shoot for a while, then you have to wait a minute. Then it reloads and you can start firing for a while. It's not hard, just use a timer gate and greater and less than for easiest way.

    Is there a console command like "disintegrate" or something like that to make what you're looking at disintegrate?

    Thanks but I set up my own SVN server here :
    https://svn.madjawa.net/lua/LaserSTOOL/
    User/pass is anon/anon
    The known bugs are fixed, but the crystal SENT is still unfinished. I'm working on it but I have less time because I'm at the university now

    Wow... i tred the crystal sent out... seems fine to me lol.. what you mean by "not finished" ??? I see nothing wrong with it. exactly what we asked for, multi lasers into it to create one massive laser that gets bigger with every laser added. i don't understand what is not finished about it.

    by the way.. nice job.

    OK, so another question: how do I make the laser fire continously for a set time? I managed to set the laser to fire with delay, but only for an imperceptibly short time (0.015 secs, to be precise).

    EDIT: OK, I got it (after three hours).

    EDIT: I'd like to make a VERY thick laser, but these effects are a bit... ugly. Something like this:

    Yeah paying for this is a bad idea it will destroy the game it is a sandbox game i have played this for a long time i am not saying i will not pay to play this but the life of the source engine is very limited by the time steam

    Like what?

    The only crystal shaped models I can think of are the ones from Stargate.
    You could always use the model manipulator if you wanted...

    Don't know if this has been suggested, but:

    Could there be an option to actually turn the disintegrating effect OFF?
    I wanna play with Gibsplat, man...
