Exocraft Mining Laser Damage Temporary Fix

Increases the damage of the Exocraft’s basic mining laser from 8 to 360 (In the mod files, this increase is from 10 to 450).

The exocraft’s mining laser will now be more powerful than a good multitool. As a turret and considerably larger weapon than a handheld multitool, I would expect the laser’s power to scale accordingly.

The “8” damage that the mining laser does in default NMS is a bug and this mod attempts to fix or at least balance the weapon.


Old instant miner went AWOL so I updated to the latest template to fix the description bugs, increased the power, and built in a rework of the smaller debris mod, this one being 1/10th the size and all models shrunk now, vs the other mod missing some resources.

This mod will cause many particles and debris to form instantly. The forced smaller debris helps cut down any lags I’ve encountered.

I also found and forced a white colour for the mining beam, or alternatively you can use the “_MOD_Frenchys.AtomicLaser-red” version for the railgun red colour. The muzzle colour has also been updated to match the beam colour for each mod.

The MW prefix is for MegaWatt, and is an instant-kill, instant mining laser as well.
