Description
Overview:
This is a beam laser effect I created for one of my missions. The beam particle effect is based on ALIAS's gravity script which you should check out if you like the look of this script. When activated, a beam laser will come from the sky above the target position and obliterate most objects beneath it. The damage/destruction can be disabled if you just want to use the effect.

This is the mod version, a script version[github.com] is also available if you want to reduce dependencies or hide it from your players in your mission file.

If you'd like to test the script for yourself, you can try out the demo mission.

Features:
  • Customisable beam/debris colour
  • Damages/destroys nearby units, vehicles and buildings
  • Nearby units can be knocked down by the blast wave
  • Designed for multiplayer and tested on dedicated server
  • Compatible with ACE
  • Useable from Zeus via Zeus Enhanced
  • Editor modules to simplify usage (Mod version only!)

ZEN Modules:
  • Beam Laser Strike
  • Orbital Bombardment

Editor Modules:
  • Beam Laser Strike
  • Orbital Bombardment

The script and how to use it is described in more detail on the GitHub page.

Notes:
The explosion effect has a fairly high particle count, try to avoid triggering more than one beam at any given time for best player performance.

The editor placed module can be synced to triggers so that you can use the script without writing any code.

@Zdraste I do not allow reuploads/repacks of the mod at this time. If you want to use the mod add it to a Steam collection.

Good day, I would really like to reload your mod in my mod. The mod will not claim the rights of the creators of the original addons and is only used to save space in the presets on the project Star Line . Is it possible to get this permission, of course, with a mention of you in the description of the mod.

Is there a way to lower the shake amount?

Thank you for sharing bro! Keep it up!

@Niven Not currently no, but if you use the script version you could change the lifetime of the particles so that they stay for longer. You would need to edit the file 'functions\fn_rayParticles.sqf' and modify the particle parameters.

Is it possible to change the duration of a single beam strike? As in how long the beam is there for?
