Have you ever thought that long-range wireless communication in OpenComputers is either too expensive or too overpowered?

Well here you got your solution!
This add-on for OpenComputers allows you to have line-of-sight, laser-based communication up to 4096 blocks.

 

Everything below applies to version 0.7.0 and newer!

A little bit of math:

Base ranges and energy usage:

  • Laser Diode: 25RF/tick, 64 blocks base range
  • CO2 Laser Tube: 50RF/tick, 128 blocks base range
  • Nd:YAG Laser Tube: 100RF/tick, 256 blocks base range

Range multipliers:

  • Base multiplier is 1
  • Multipliers add up when multiple lenses are placed in the laser's path
  • Maximum range is 4069 blocks (calculated as follows: (Shaped Diamond Lens multiplier + 1)*2 * Nd:YAG Laser Tube range)
  • Glass Lens: adds 1 to the current multiplier
  • Quartz Lens: adds 3 to the current multiplier
  • Shaped Diamond Lens: adds 7 to the current multiplier

Discouragement Redirection Cubes decrease the maximum distance by 8.

All values can be adjusted in the config file!
