You can download an updated version here.

(use webmilio's topic to post a reply!)

The basic of the Laser Mod includes three types of blocks:
Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
Use the laser mod to defense your house, as a light source, or for a mob-trap and much more!

The ruby
All blocks are based on the ruby now.
You can craft it with glass and redstone:
Posted Image
For the next version it is planned that
the ruby arises in the environment.

The Laser

The laser is a block, which shoot a laser-beam, when you activate it.
Posted Image
The default laser-beam is white, very small and interruptible.
You can use this fo a mob-detector/light barrier.
Posted Image
You can improve the laser with a lens, to add a function. You can put other blocks on it while sneaking.


Posted Image

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.

Posted Image

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.
Posted Image

Posted Image

The Lens

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 Drill

You can use the drill to bore more inputs/outputs into a laser device.

Posted Image

You can choose between one of these blocks for the case:
-Mossy cobblestone
-Stone bricks
-Lazuli block
-Iron block
-Gold block
-Diamond block
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.
Posted Image
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.

Posted Image

Click with right-click on any laser device and it will show you the beam-properties.
Posted Image

The tube and the panel

Use the lasers to make colorful displays, or color-signals.

Posted ImagePosted Image

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.

Yes it works with the aether and remember, if the mod isn't compatible with another,
change the block ids via the config file.

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.
It is not the weapon that makes the warrior, but the warrior that makes the weapon.

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...
