How to make a both-ways laser door

first put a laser and a zone like this:

then set the laser to a group of your choice and set the zone to deactivate the laser when a player enters. then set the zone to re-activate the laser after someone leaves the zone. and you have a door! it might hit you but thats OK you just make the zone bigger.

Nice, but I have an alternative guide that can work as well:
Materials: 2x Zone, 1x Laser

  1. Resize the zone to fit the laser, use Change Size to change the size of the laser.

    The icon should be near the laser (you should see a wire)

  2. Create a wire that goes from the zone to the laser beam.
    Then, wire it so when the player enters the zone, the laser deactivates.
  3. Create a second zone, and put it directly over the first zone.
  4. Now wire it so when the player leaves the zone, the laser activates.

but then it would mean more space taken up and the first one has less space taken up and is easier but that one is cool too. :grinning:

Nice first guide, @anon77025890! Welcome to the forum!

My man, instead of discounting his guide, just publish the Quatroian version!

Welcome to this forum! Nice first guide! Very few have their first post be a guide, but usually those that do are very good, such as the infamous @ClicClac, Luigi of Gimkit Creative!

Mine was too (and it was a not-so-good guide).

great first guide! tip, so some new users don’t get confused on why they can’t wire one device to the same device twice, you might want to add a note to your guide to let them know they need to use channels
