Block Laser plugin for Pointcloud2

I am using the block laser plugin from gazebo_ros_pkgs (currently running ROS Melodic and Gazebo9) but I want the output to be a PointCloud2 topic and not PointCloud. I am aware of the fact that there is a convertPointCloudToPointCloud2 in sensor_msgs, but feeding it with a large scale scan causes pretty serious delay issues. There is a fork of the gazebo_ros_pkgs in github (in indigo and jade devel branches) but it's for an older version of ROS (indigo and jade). I was wondering if anyone has found a block laser plugin to work for ros melodic and gazebo9.
