As has been stated, laser fences do nothing to bad guys. Nor are they supposed to, as far as I can tell.

They are still way cool though, and you have to watch out for your engineers. "Anouther task to keep you involved... :D"

Even with walls virii can slip under them, so you can place them close to the edge, anything close to the wall/laser fence they slip under.

well you could set some AI spawns along the fence - spawning team green virii - these are invisible but they kill red virii, however they get killed and release green souls like any other unit, so you'll hget a fence releaseing green and red souls - up to you.

Laser fences have always been dubious at best. Relying on them in your mod for anything other than visual effects is a mistake. The same can be said of walls. Although do they stop movement temporarily, it only takes a little effort to 'bounce' a unit right through a wall, which means they arent completely reliable either.

ok looksie here and look for either the darwinia link or the download link (depending on whether I've resotred my homepage when you get there - then look at the laserfence level.
