The basic of the Laser Mod includes three types of blocks:
Use the laser mod to defense your house, as a light source, or for a mob-trap and much more!
All blocks are based on the ruby now.
You can craft it with glass and redstone:
For the next version it is planned that
the ruby arises in the environment.
The laser is a block, which shoot a laser-beam, when you activate it.
The default laser-beam is white, very small and interruptible.
You can use this fo a mob-detector/light barrier.
You can improve the laser with a lens, to add a function. You can put other blocks on it while sneaking.
The Laser Reflector
The peculiarity of the reflector is that the laser goes through and comes out were it points. So you can pass on the laser-beam.
The redirected beam has the same properties like the source.
You can mix diffrent laser beams and you can also put a lens on it.
The Laser Sensor
The Laser Sensor is a block, which provide power, while touching the laser-beam.
Use it for pass on signales over a long distance.
Use the lens to change the color of the laser-beam and also the function, the properties, all in all the whole behavior of the beam. You can craft a lens via the "lens bench".
The first step is to click on the new lens bench and and put a glass-block in the middle.
Specialize your lens:
For making a edge, put one of these solid blocks into the highest slot.
This is only for aesthetics. You can also make frameless lenses, but you need the drill to use them.
To change further poperties, you can put further items into the function slots.
Is it possible to change following properties:
And advanced it with a Enderpearl.
To change the color, put one dye in one of the other slots. (function slots)
Each color changes the function of the laser.
?The detector beam. The beam is interruptible.
Power 1-3: Blocked by items, mobs, and player.
Power 4-6: Blocked by mobs and players.
Power 7-9: Blocked by player only.
➡The heat beam. Deals damage, sets the world on fire, destroys blocks.
Power: Each level improves the damage per second, the change to set an entity on fire and the beam can dig through harder blocks. Maximum damage: 30 hearts per second!
Advanced: Prevents beam from destruction of items.
➡The nature beam. Speeds up plant grow rate. If user cuts the tree segment which is under the effect of an advanced green beam, the whole tree will fall. This will allow for automatic tree farms.
Higher Power: Speeds up plant grow rate.
Advanced: Tree-cutting mechanism avaible.
➡The slow down beam. Slows down mobs on horizontal plane (e.g. they move slower, but jump as usual).
Power n: Slows down target to n*10%.
Advanced: Slows down by vertical axis.
➡The light beam. Has increased light level.
Power n: 4+n Lightlevel
Advancded: The beam passes through solid blocks as if there wasn't any.
➡The tractor beam. The beam pushes entities. All sorts of farming machines as well as laser elevators are possible with this beam.
Power n: Pulls stuff with acceleration 0.4*n m/s.
Advanced: Pushes instead. If the beam is horizontal, it also pushes entities top with same acceleration.
➡The hybrid of red and blue.
Increase the power, to improves the properties of the laser-beam. Each level also increases the size of the beam.
The maximum Power is +9.
A default beam has the range of 10 meters. Improve the range, when needed.
Or worsen the range. Each reflector reduce the range by 20%.
Use Blaze Powder to make your laser-beam more transparent, or even complete invisible. Blaze powder's effect is reverse-propotional to beam power. It's only possible to make a laser with power 1 completely invisible.
With the drill in your hand make a right-click on your chosen block and a gui will pop up.
You can put a glass-blocks or a frameless lenses into the slots.
Ruby must be present in player's inventory and will be automatically consumed.
Each slot stands for one side of the block. The glass-block will add a further input,
the lenses a further output.
Use the template for examples of possible constructions.
(You can craft a frameless lenses like a normal one, read the lens-topic for further infos).
Now you made a custom laser-deviece!
To harvest such device, use a tool you would usually use for its material block.
The handheld laser beam sensor
You build complicated laser-systems and your are unsure which properties what kind of properties your beams have?
Craft the "handheld laser beam sensor" to understand better the operation of the laser-beams. Recipe:
Click with right-click on any laser device and it will show you the beam-properties.
The tube and the panel
Use the lasers to make colorful displays, or color-signals. Recipe:
When a tube collides with a laser-beam, it will change the color of the connected panels
into the beam color. Panels light level depends on light level of powering beam.
Make a wonderful screenshot about your usage of the laser mod.
Describe the picture and post it. Please upload it as a 640px x 358px .jpg file.
We will add it to the topic and the best one will be the new topic-picture!

Cool mod, quite an interesting idea. May I suggest an obsidian lazer? Or perhapse upgraded lazers that use diamonds as lenses. These new lazers would be able to cut through everything but obsidian and bedrock. They would be limited to working for short bursts, then have to have a cooling down period. They would be quite time consuming to remove, even with a diamond pick, but they woudl save hours of time when trying to create tunnels through a mountain or anywhere else. They could also be quite useful for hidden traps, if the mod is made to work with SMP. Simply hide the lazer(s) behind a solid rock wall, leave a few pressure plates, and let the other player see the light.
