No they aren't.
Otherwise laser pointers and laser-guided items would be totally useless.

I can witness that, my green laser pointer is fully visible (Beam, dammit) in the dark.
IR lasers are invisible though, that's true.

ANYWAYS, as for the mod itself, it sounds moderately interesting, so i'll give it a shot,
and come back with more constructive criticism and comments...
Maybe even a gif :0

Edit: Ok, that was... Disappointing. Offsets are REALLY messed, basically unchanged from
whatever gun you modded it from. Muzzle offset is like, half a meter below the actual muzzle.
The sprite is pretty good though.
As for the functionality... It's a gun that fires ten red bullets at once with zero spread, that
can travel around the map several times and puncture your ass twice. Not good.
You need to work on offsets and originality. Sure, it's a good idea, but it has been done a million
times before, and truth be told, you didn't do it very well :/
If you can't think of anything original (Not to sound offensive), at least try to make your mod
above all the others of the same kind.
Keep trying though, you'll get it soon :)

Oh yes, gif.

Y'ALL JUST GOT SHAKEN.
Anyway, the mod is... ehhh. Sprite isn't bad, but the coding is just not up to spec. Fixed offsets, a nice sound, and lower lifetime would indeed fix this.
A neat, unrealistic random muzzleflash would also help.
And the Church of the Invisible Pink Unicorn is a scientific faith- It's scientific because we know that it's invisible because we can't see it, and we have faith that it's pink.
But yeah, some lasers, especially red ones, are not visible in the daytime unless there is a lot of dust. I just assume that, in this mod's case, the visible red is caused by the extreme power of a laser capable of turning whatever it hits to mush.

You can't see the beam of light, he means. You can see where they land. Same with any form of light. If you think about it, if we could see beams of light, on a sunny day, we would only see white.

Sprite; below average; looks like a ripoff of the AAL N Rifle

Offsets; eh, shook got it already :P

Originality; I can name 3 lasers off the top of my head in a heartbeat which all frankly whoop this one out the park.

Overall; not worth the DL ._.

Before you give him creds for the sprite, it came from the sprite dump.

(sorry off topic)....yes if it was just a pointer, but a real life lazer like in the mod then it would be a beam of light so concetrated it is, not only "see-able", but able to burn through/electrify/dissolve* your target

*depending on the lazer you use of course

ON TOPIC:mod is good but nothing too new, sprites quite good,its just a simple lazer

I keep saying, SOMEONE ELSE MADE THE SPRITE. It is buried somewhere in the sprite dump. probably dead now of course. Also, the particle beam off of C&C3s expansion pack faction Black Hand, available as an upgrade to confessor infantry, would be appreciated. It would be a constant beam, not a single blast, be a green blast, and it would require a resprite. I think that would be fun to play around with. Although to stay true to the original, each bullet would need to make a tiny green glow explosion on impact.

Lasers do not work anything like that. It shoots a glowing beam of death that kills stuff.

Does it even say laser in the mod? It says "Particle Beam Weapon" to me.

Yeah actually. Beams are constant. And a particle is akin to a piece of something solid. It's just shooting tiny atoms of superheated metal, basically.

I can be nice. And anyway, as bladecat4, didn't I slag your attempt at trying to get someone to make a fully formed mod for you so you could take the creds?

.....Again It was not a full mod and I was not going to take all the cred why does everyone think I was going to be an arse and take all the credit
creds creds creds

AND that was when I just started, didnt know anything about the forums, and was very, very, very tired......, new at modding, now i've made them all myself (exept the umpossible one).

yes thats right I said umpossible.

Googles Lazer.

No, they are not the same thing, because Lazer is not an actual word but a corruption of the word laser.
To put it simply, there is no such thing as a lazer, lazer is simply a mispelling of laser.

Uhm... yeah. Like everyone said, fix these offsets. If you're too lazy to do it i could always try to code em but, well, I'm deep in college right now so no chances there.

Also, a muzzle flash would be nice as well as a little spread so the particle looks bulkier thus making it look like that its really an über laser that kills.

Try to make a continuous Beam too, cauz now its just another laser, one that I can easily do myself even if I'm bad at coding. Or you could make a laser shotgun... I don't think I ever saw something like that.
