(DX11)Deep Space Transceiver

Description: Deep Space Transceiver is an extremely powerful large 20 meters antenna dish, 7x7x9 blocks. It is capable on sending and receiving data at distances up to 2 million km. It is perfect choice for establishing communications between different planets, remote stations or deep space research vessels. NOTE, hovever, than minimum possible elevation for the dish is 33 degrees, so plant theese accordingly so target of connection was higher above horizon than that.

It requires 70 Mw for turning the dish and 3 Mw for maintaining the connection itself, spending 0.5 Mw in idle.

Known issues:
1. It is silent. I want it to make noises as it turns. Waiting for possibility to mod them in.

i think this is now obselete bec vanilla laser antennas now has a slider to adjust the range, and it can be set to unlimited. confirmed in creative and survival.

I don't know why, but the transceiver uses 70 MW regardless of what it is doing.
Even when being idle (and it states that it is), it still uses 70 MW.

I've just reuploaded a balanced version of this mod here:

Lowered the range to 3000 km. I felt that 2 billion meters was a bit much.
