PostSubject: Mining Lasers?   Thu Jan 26, 2012 5:40 pm

Im sure somebody brought it up, but i would like to suggest mining lasers for Future. There is an mod that uses lasers for mining given enough power.
Any comments?







Im using a laser mod. Courtesy of direwolf20, look him up on youtube

I approve of this idea.

Afterall, we're going to be using them for ship-weapons anyway, it couldn't be too hard to code either a mining power setting for your main guns or give you purpose-built lasers.

We are adding lots of mining equipment, but I personally
don't think ships should have the ability to mine. Ships might carry mining
equipment, like my Dreadnought which will store several drilling platforms, but
not be a piece of mining equipment themselves. I don't want to see ships flying
past and using tractor beams to suck up trees and bits of ground.

But that was the idea of the SHEPARD!(Sheep Herds Exit Planet's Atmosphere Robotic Destroyer.)
Wow that was bad.
I agree with you.

Well i had in mind once you drill you have to collect physically your self.

When did this become Eve?!? Mining lasers?!? blah.

If I wanted to sit in a spot and mine for hours on end I'd go play Eve and fly around in my Hulk.

Mining ship can mean a drone-platform like you're going to do, Doc Mac. But some people will enjoy tearing planets open with laser power.

Some of us have never played Eve and plus wasnt this minecraft, purpose to mine. It would be nice if players had the option to do so.

You don't have to use the fun stuff if you don't want, but there is a reason you don't see many iron block space ship builds on survival maps. ***leaves xanax21 in the pit of death***

You could destroy the planet with any non fire weapon (to leave the Items) and use anything which accelerates the Air in the direction of your ship( maybe the ventilation system) to suck up everything you destroyed so you won´t need any tractor beams (but you ar right it wold be cool).

PS. I want a Giant Laser Beam (50x50) which can be overcharged to turn any planet in a Desert Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil )


....

not a very polite way to ask for it

If anything, that would be a radiation beam ( think extragalactic jets from black holes) but it is too overpowered and way too energy inefficient (by any superweapons standard) to be implemented (IMO).
