This week's minor update brings a new type of laser sensor!
The laser point sensor will detect a laser light within it's vision upto 2000m away. There is also a new laser beacon component that emits a detectable light on the component. The new sensor acts like a camera, sensitive only to specifically laser light. It will output if a laser is detected, and the XY position of the point most central to it's field of vision.
This new component will help players build AI systems, helping accurately position and coordinate drones, create laser guided missile behavior, or other such systems.
The full patch notes can be found below.
