laser art [TESTING] (need ideas)

Post by popsch »

Hi,

I tinkered a bit to create laser art installations. This OXP is only intended for testing, because it transports you directly to one example installation.

I have ideas for a couple more such installations, the question is though what is the best use of them? Just random things you encounter on high-tech level peaceful planets? Any suggestions are welcome.

Remarkable! I downloaded this and had a look, and this is a stunning little visual display! I presume you can vary the colors of the beams? Some suggestions for use:

Restricted military zones can be bordered with red warning beams to indicate a no-go area.

High-tech Capitalist systems could have a 'welcome gate' at the witchspace beacon with a display? Or perhaps at the main station would be better, that way pirates don't shoot the beacons.

If you can set up a display anywhere, a multi-colored light display outside of things like Casinos, large Constores, etc, as advertising?

This is quite a piece of eye-candy you've cooked up here, and as tiny as the download is, I don't see why the basic model can't be adapted to any number of OXPs. Excellent work!
Reports of my death have been greatly underestimated.
