Why isn't that already the case? Yes, this stems from my desire to have to a) click one button and b) have my strip miners start and finish at the same time to prevent wasted resources. What are your thoughts?

I am not in favour of this. Simply that most people target several roids at a time and have one lazor on each.

You can choose not to link them of course.

I don't know whether grouped weapons fire exactly at the same time (which seems to be impossible for mining lasers when you try it manually in any way possible), but I never understood why mining lasers can't be grouped like weapons.

don't target the roid first

click on your lasers, they will begin to blink,

NOW click on a roid.

Problem solved. Both lasers will fire at the same time.

If I understand Acac correctly (the wasted resources part), it's about mining crystal wear. Even when activating the miners first and then locking the target, they will not act as one. When the cargo hold is nearly full and the end of the next cycle will fill it 100%, one of the two miners will start a new cycle in the instant where 'both' filled it. I guess it's because there's a kind of queue for transactions like adding ore to the cargo hold.

Every identical module should be linkable.

you realize he can set auto repeat to off right?
