I made some suggestions for Mars Explorer 3 and created them in Unity. I created a video of the suggestions as well: 
 
The suggestions are:
World brightness setting - set to near minimum in video
Lasers emit light as they move
Random bot names from a list - in the video, bot_Wolfram and bot_Apollo
More interesting laser hit effects (Beautiful and Fantastic only)
More interesting lasers (Simple+)
Rate of Fire setting for vehicles! (Set to maximum (4x normal) in video)
Rate of Fire setting for bots - decreased by 30% in video.

Awesome! :) I like the effects you made :) Only... It could get confusing with all of those exploding bits everywhere... Because it could get hard to see and stuff

Yes, probably the explosion pieces could be a bit smaller.

That sucks. Really nice job, though. I want these changes seen in Mars 3 as well. The splashing is my favorite.

When the lazers hit the ground, they "splash." This isn't a joke at all, it's what it is called.

Nice work! :)
 
 
 
Here are some comments on the suggestions:
 
  • World brightness setting -- A good idea! This won't happen until the world loading system is revamped.
  • Lasers emit light as they move -- Interesting! Scheduled for addition. Will be visible only in beautiful/fantastic.
  • Random bot names from a list -- This is a high-detail setting and will have to wait for the settings revamp
  • More interesting laser hit effects -- I like those effects! I am happy to recreate them myself, but you may wish to share the changes you made if you want them to stick.
  • More interesting lasers -- On simple+? Dunno, depends on how laggy the effects you want on simple are.
  • Rate of Fire setting for vehicles! -- Planned, but will take place after the settings revamp
  • Rate of Fire setting for bots -- Planned, but will take place after the settings revamp
 
 
 
 
 
For maximal chance of these features being added, you may wish to PM me the modified project

btw none of these changes will show up in the next release -- I have actually already completed the next release and I'm just sorting through images. However, they may appear in releases after that :)

I would love it if lasers made light when they move, but probably only on good+

OOOIEE! I like those ideas!
World brightness may be hard/impossible though, you would have to ask the comittee. (Idk)
 
However, like I have said previously, an I/O setting for amount of lazers per second would be neat.

World brightness is easy, you just have to change the brightness of the directional light.

True...
 
However, I have seen worlds which have forgotten directional lights.

Amazing!
 
Although the splash looks more like a glowing green goop spill instead of a laser hit.

The green is too dull, so it looks more like glowing radio active waste, especially when it hits.
 
It needs to be bright colored. It is a laser.
And lasers also don't "splash" like that.

Who says the mars buggies really even fire lasers? o.O
They could be cooled plasma dischargers or something :P
