Laser Designator Block
This idea came to me while browsing scripts on Steam. I've noticed that many of them use the targeting feature of the various turrets and link their features to that. Radar scripts, guided missile scripts, and more all use this method.
A laser designator block for small and large ships would be nice to have in order to fill this function in a more elegant manner. It could work in an identical manner to the current vanilla turrets, but do no damage by itself. Scripts could them link to it in the same way as they do to turrets. It could also have a significantly longer range than the base game turrets.
