I looked through the mods sections but did not find any meant just for Lasers or weapon filtering.

I am looking for a mod that is nothing but laser beam based weapons. I am looking for beam weapons ranging from PD up to super heavy. (I mostly mess around in the game and as such have a lot of different mods. I use the console commands mod and when I activate combat cheats my laptop slows way down when I use any weapon that fires projectiles be it energy/ballistic/missile. I can fire nothing but Lasers + cheats and be totally fine. For whatever reason its just projectiles.)

I am also looking for a mod that filters weapons by Design Type. Mostly so I can find/compare Mod X weapons easier to use on Mod X ships.

Maybe if you share the specs of your laptop some people here will give you tips to boost performance and hopefully let you get the full Starsector experience. What did you mean when you wrote "I use cheats"?

You should to be aware that, when adding mods, performance often takes a hit.

Now, to answer your question about mods containing "lasers", what you are looking for are laser beam based weapons. The keyword is "beam".

The most powerful ones in vanilla Starsector are: High Intensity Laser and Tachyon Lance (both are large energy).

Searching this keyword into my Starsector mods folder, I find several beam weapons - see below. Unfortunately all of those mods are quite big because they have a lot of content (not just weapons), and I'm afraid performance might go even further down on your computer if you add them.

  • Foundation Of Borken: has several
  • Ship and Weapon Pack: has the Light Phase Lance (small energy)
  • Diable Avionics: has several
  • Tiandong Heavy Industries: has the heavy mining laser (medium energy)
  • Blackrock Drive Yards: has several
  • Interstellar Imperium: some ships have a builtin laser beam weapon
  • Shadowyards: has several
  • Disassemble Reassemble: has at least one, the lacerator (small energy)
  • Dassault-Mikoyan Engineering: has several
  • SCY: has several

It's not currently possible to filter weapon options in refit (although this is confirmed in the next update).  It also isn't possible to make existing weapons that fire projectiles, instead fire 'lasers', because its hardcoded to the weapon. If you're having performance issues, you should consider turning down battle size and disabling GraphicsLib's VFX if you have it enabled.

I don't want to change projectile weapons into beam weapons I just want a greater amount of  different beam weapons especially long range super heavy beam weapons.

And on the subject of my laptop i finally got my PC fixed and I installed the game on it. It plays really nice now.
