Shortlink:
This mod is somewhat redundant after U161, but it still has features not included in the base game, such as custom NPC lasers (for SWAT Turrets, Snipers, and Vault Lasers) and disabling/changing player/teammate lasers.

I told you guys it was a good idea! VINDICATIOOOOON!

"Networked Player Lasers" (or "NNL" for New Networked Player Lasers) is a standalone BLT mod derived from GoonMod which allows you to change the color of your own weapon lasers, or your teammates' if you so prefer. 
However, this mod also allows you to sync your weapon laser colors with those of other players, provided they have this mod.

Features

* Customizable R/G/B/A levels with in-game menu for:
    - Your weapons' lasers (all, instead of having to set each one individually)
    - Your teammates' lasers
    - Syncs lasers with other players who have this mod, provided they have this installed
    - Enemy snipers' lasers
    - World/vault lasers such as the ones in Big Bank, GO Bank, Golden Grin or Murky Station
    - Turrets' lasers (for three different modes: normal, reloading, and ECM hacked)
* Reverse compatibility support with anyone still using GoonMod somehow???
* BLT Auto-updated
* Ability to make your lasers strobe different colors, and let other users with this mod see the same strobe. To properly use this feature, please consult the readme!
* Fixes some bugs in GoonMod's original code, including one (intentional?) where lasers never used your alpha level and instead all used one very opaque global alpha level.
* Fixes a potential crash in GoonMod caused by turning on custom weapon lasers 
* Ability to change lasers' colors mid-game

Planned

* Probably gonna change the name/image of this mod since its main purpose (making synced laser colors) is already in the base game. Strobe lasers live on!
* [IN PROGRESS] Menu/save system for gradients
* Custom/synced strobe Flashlight colors
* Blacklist for certain laser colors or colors within a certain boundary (eg. lasers that are too close to the sniper laser red)
* Code that is not bad

Known Issues

* You may experience issues when using this with the mod "Sentry Contours" by Subsimple.
* After selecting any given player/teammate laser override custom color/strobe, if you want to change back to the custom laser colors provided in the base game to attachments, you will need to start a new heist for the changes to take effect. I will try to address this later.


FAQ

Q:
Can I disable other players' lasers so I don't confuse them with snipers?
A:
Yes. You can set them to any color or strobe you like, or make them invisible.


Q:
I'm confused about how to make the special flashy strobe-y gradient lasers work! Or, I am confused about how to make colors with only red, green, and blue! Those aren't the primary paint colors I learned in primary school!
A:
That's not a question, but you can consult the readme, or ask me if it's unclear! It's a confusing system at the moment while I write the menu. Also see this resource website for creating desired colors with RGB called ColorPicker.
Q:
Can I disable [x] feature of this mod?
A:
You can disable any of the features in this mod at will, through the menu. If you just want to change the laser color of enemy snipers, or if you just want to make your own laser a colorful, blinding disco-inferno rave of rainbow hell, then you can do that!

Q:
I'm not convinced to download this mod! SEDUCE ME!
A:
This is the most fully featured laser mod out there, and the only one that syncs laser colors between players as far as I know. If that doesn't get your attention, I don't know what will.

Q:
Do I.... internet?
A:
Yes.

I sometimes mistaken client red laser swishing around with cop sniper laser..


Yes, with this mod you can override all other players' laser colors to be a color or strobe of your choosing, or you can disable them (make them invisible.) Of course you can also set it to display whatever laser colors they choose, if you don't want to override them. (Setting this part in-game  may only take place after starting a new heist.)

A lot of this mod's features (gradients, world customisation) will probably still be useful. Don't lose hope!

The latest update just made your mod semi-redundant. FeelsBadMan

P.S. I was wondering if you could potentially create a "New Networked Flashlight Mod"? It's just a suggestion, however, I think it would be quite cool.

Thanks! I'm quite glad you like it!

I'm assuming you mean to have a flashlight with varying color or opacity? I'll certainly look into such a mod for player flashlights. I think that it's possible, it's just a matter of how much people would want such a mod.
