[1.2.5] The Laser Mod (v.1.5)

  • #21
    I think I've found a bug.
    I made a huge laser-wall powered with redstone, because I wanted to "burn" a tunnel.

    But after I activated the laser, I got a message telling me that minecraft was saving chunks.

    Then I got this error report:

    AWESOME mod! Now i can protect my house from :SSSS:
    A little suggestion:
    How about making the laser shoot upwards?
  • #25
    I have an idea for this mod: Ultra-weak lasers that can't hurt mobs or the player but are stopped by them so you can make it like this:
    L---------------------S
    L being a ultra-weak laser, S being a laser sensor and - being a laser shot and when a mob comes (M=mob):
    L----------M S so you can make long-range mob-detectors without having to craft several stacks of pressure plates.

    Thanks for reading!

    This is quite amazing.

    There DEFINITELY needs to be a limit on how far the beam can go. Once I had to going a really long way, I ran into the game doing the "Saving Chunks" crash.

    found 2 bugs so far (aside from the "Saving Chunks" glitch, which hasn't happened for a while), both in this picture.

    i described it in the picture, since I thought it would be too hard to in the post.

    I also hooked it up to a redstone clock, and when you get REALLY far out...like when the clock is outside of the loaded chunk, the line gets semi glitchy looking. It doesn't break though, so I wouldn't worry about it.

    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.

    I did no think of that great idea :biggrin.gif:
    Ha! A signature! What kind of idiot uses those?

    How are you drawing the laser beam? Did you have to write your own rendering method or does vanilla minecraft support this? I'm wondering how practical a portable, handheld mining laser would be...


    You would need to use entites for that :tongue.gif:

    Does it work on portals?(from the portal mod)

    Loving the idea! I also remember a bunch of people on the redstone forums saying how making a powerful (we're talking like 512kb here :tongue.gif:) computer on minecraft is impossible due to the fact that redstone signal is so slow. Whether or not deliberate, you've inadvertently created faster redstone! A quick test showed that over a distance of 25 or so blocks, 2 lasers to a sensor beats a standard redstone signal by about half a second, which of course as the distance gets longer becomes more and more significant.

    I would love if you could develop the capabilities more here, just off the top of my head I can think of ...

    - Laser gun. We all thought of it didn't we! Not only could it provide half decent damage, it could sizzle the blocks in front of you at X (fairly slow) speed, I'm also thinking that a flick of a switch (like right click) could make the laser from damage to power, so that it powers the block you point at. That could be potentially useful for testing circuits, and has potential with developing circuitry and more complicated traps which require the user to input the source themselves!

    - Automatic laser forcefield. Perhaps for a rather hefty cost of lots of lasers you could create a 2x3 wall of laser that shoots at 90 degree angles. I'm finding hard to put it into words but almost a 'corner' big block that fires 3 lasers in 2 directions. My thoughts here came for quick use of the lasers to create a boundary or for powering stuff.

    :chestfront: :chestfront: :chestfront:
    :chestfront: :: :chestfront:
    :chestfront: :chestfront: :chestfront:

    Chest = laser, of your various varities.

    Of course you don't have to take any of this if you don't want to, I'm just wall-of-texting with enthusiasm here :tongue.gif: Besides that, I love this mod! Great work!
    If you can't strive for perfection, what can you strive for?

    you should make one out of gold that acts as a trip wire.
    walk past it and the sensor on the other side will deactivate and pistons will retract underneath you any you fall into a laser pit of doom.

    This looks sick I'm gonna have to try it out asap.

    I had the same problem, every time I turned a laser on or off it would crash.

    I don't really want the mod, but because of the video I'm gonna go through the adf.ly links anyway so you get some moneys =3

    I fixed the bug with the Laser Tube.
