The GSO Thermal Beam, a static long-range beam which deals fire-type damage. That's it really. screen225.png

Update log:
-Made the beam actually do fire damage
-Made beam cheaper, now requires 2 Heat Coils instead of 2 Plasma Emitters
-Lowered damage to 750, from 850

IMPORTANT:
Delete old Thermal Beam folder before adding the new one.

Big news:

I am an idiot and forgot to tell the Thermal Beam to only do fire damage. However, @Licflagg has used it to make a miner and suggested I keep the broken Thermal Beam around for that purpose. As such, the old version of the thermal beam will soon be rebranded the Plasma Beam, a shorter range beam which uses a modified thermal beam model and deals plasma damage. The original post of the Thermal Beam will contain both the new and old versions of the beam until I make the model for the Plasma Beam.

Any existing creations with the old Thermal Beam will have them replaced with the Plasma Beam once it's finished, the new Thermal Beam will have its own block ID.

GSO Plasma Beam, basically a Thermal Beam but it does plasma damage instead. Also has a shorter range but higher damage.

!! IF YOU HAVE NOT UPDATED THE OLD THERMAL BEAM, DELETE THE FOLDER BEFORE INSERTING THIS ONE !!

The new beam is cool.

But i think something went wrong for me.
Both beams are the same length/range, and the aiming is a bit strange.
Like, some aim, otheres don't, and some aim in strange directions.
And yes, i did scrub the old beam BEWFORE i installed the new one.

I remember this being a vanilla bug with weapons not returning to their normal position after shooting at an enemy. I'll take a look at it though.

The Thermal Beam should be longer than targeting range, while the Plasma Beam should be just slightly less than targeting range. I'll see if I accidentally messed up the range values, though I did test this before releasing them.

EDIT: I checked and the Plasma Beam JSON is correct at 100 range, and the Thermal beam at 180 range.

I checked in game and both lasers definitely have different ranges.

Also, if the picture below is the same as the aiming issue you have, I'm afraid it's a vanilla bug with weapons not completely returning to their original rotation when no enemies are nearby.
