 +| laser_module_proportional_power | true | Whether the laser power should be proportional to the current speed, so as speed of movement ramps up (and down), laser power is proportionally adjusted, so that the amount of laser power/quantity of photons for a given distance/area is always constant, even if speed has to increase/decrease progressively.         This is true by default, but in some situations you might want to disable this feature.
