Tech Tier Numbers on Laser Icons

Do Gamma Rays shine yellow? Are X-Rays green?
What are their wavelengths? Which ones carry more energy?
Still confused by electromagnetic spectrum?

Then this mod is for you.

What it does

Replaces technology icons for Laser Weapons by exactly same ones, only with tech tier numbers added in the corner, same as they are on Kinetic Weapons, Missiles, Shields, Armor and every other technologies in Stellaris.

Why they are missing on lasers only is a mystery, which might be revealed in future DLC.

Technical Info

Only replaces five icon files for these laser techs.
Compatible with any Stellaris version and all other mods.
Can be installed and removed at any time.

They do have that on ship component icons (legally distinct), which is probably why it slipped thru the cracks for so long - missing numbers there would've been even more confusing.

To be fair, they're visualized like proper beams in stellaris, not "bolts" like with blasters and such, and IMO look much prettier than bolts ever can.

It is an abstract visualization though, as indeed if it was simulation-like camera, there'd be no beams (except maybe in nebulas, where there's at least something to scatter from), definitely no red/gamma/x-rays (outside visible spectrum), and nothing in space at all that'd be larger than pixel-sized due to astronomical scale.
But since it is visualization, no excuse for not making it more convenient and pretty, which is the purpose of such things after all.

You can never have enough Quality in your Life, even if you are James Quall.

I guess they figured the order of the spectrum was obvious. They do seem to be nerds. At the same time though, they shoot visible "laser bolts", so...

This mod has more QoL than James Quall
