"In the bustling cantinas scattered across the galaxy, whispers of AshCorp's latest breakthroughs echo through the air, igniting a fervor among spacefarers and settlers alike. The allure of laser-based tools, with their promise of efficiency and precision, captivates the imagination of all who hear of them. Sensing the opportunity amidst the growing demand, Vortex seized upon the chance to further cement their place in the cosmos.

Drawing upon their extensive experience and intimate knowledge of the market, Vortex Tactical brokered a groundbreaking contract with AshCorp, securing the rights to harness the foundational principles of the revolutionary gravitational technology. With unwavering determination, they channeled their efforts into their burgeoning Vortex Industrial division, tasked with bringing this innovative technology to fruition.

Over a span of three months, Vortex Industrial embarked on a relentless pursuit of perfection. They meticulously integrated AshCorp's patented gravitational technology with their own advanced laser systems, ensuring unparalleled performance and reliability. The result was a marvel of engineering—a suite of laser-based tools that not only surpassed expectations but set a new standard for excellence in the industry.

With production in full swing, Vortex Industrial wasted no time in distributing their cutting-edge creations to spaceports throughout the galaxy's coreward regions. Almost overnight, their laser tools became the coveted choice of spacers everywhere, renowned for their unmatched quality and effectiveness.

Today, as the legacy of Vortex continues to evolve, their indelible mark on the cosmos grows ever more pronounced. Through innovation and ingenuity, they forge a path forward, empowering settlers and spacefarers to navigate the uncharted depths of space with confidence and resolve."

Hi, I like the look of your mod, but before I decide to use it or not I need to know, how big is your small grid tool, as so far all the block tools I have tried have always been a large block size?

So I tested it out, and it mined a lot of stone but not a lot of gold, which was what it was also grabbing, minor bug?

Really nice mod, ive run into an issue tho.
When mining something and deactivating the laser, it still produces ore without actually mining. Making infinite resources. This can be stopped by turning it off

I also have other laser tool mods using tool core and no other mod is having this problem

Personally, seeing how small and powerful these laser tools are, i find this power cost very reasonable lol. Thank you for such a Wonderful mod <3

Raven its weird right? As developers we should make things that make since for the player? So they do the right thing kinda intuitively ya know? It really seamed to me these were logical power requirements for this kind of tool but soooooo many people seam to be not powering them enough. I've been considering lowering the power requirements because it catches so many people up.

FYI,For any of you wondering why it just flickers the laser on for a split second. The power requirement for the tools. is in MEGAWATTS.
