Laser/LAMS rework (2.15)

I don't build particularily small, either. This would be game over for many of the actually small things.

Maybe 10? Tops?

I think you guys are overestimating how much 50 power is, even on a small flyer.
10 power isn't even noticeable(though it would be enough to make power shortages matter for detection/LWCs).


Some setups/numbers for microfighters(~2-300 blocks):
  • If you use missiles all you need is autodetection and a ~2Hz LWC to get IR/radar on target. A 360°/spinning 90° bearing detector with 0 autodetection.
  • You can just use detections from another vehicle.
  • Lasers/fast APS only really need bearing. Laser rangefinder and retroreflection are practically free though so this point doesn't matter too much.
  • Against big targets 90° camera/laser rangefinder are enough.
  • Even if you want a cannon-based ASF, 90° camera + camera tracker + laser rangefinder is all you need, that's 2.6 GPP.
    With a 10Hz LWC that's 3.6 GPP, a 4 block engine + 1 block fuel for 6 minutes(20-40Hz is only really useful for lasers, cannons are fkd by prediction).

The worst case is the cannon ASF, with a generous 10 Hz it's 5 extra blocks/~150 materials for great detection if GPP costs 50 fuel.
Missiles/remote detections are practically free.
