Hey does any of the FL guru's out there know how to make a weapon that can knock out that cloaking device?

only thing I could think of was haveing low hitpoint on the device. if it gets hit with AOE damage it would be destroyed.

any other creative solutions?

thanks

Jer

Not unless someone's already developed a hook plugin for it. if there is one, i've never heard of it.

cloaks are notoriously hard to balance. I'd only noticed the initiative to add them after the fact, or I would have spoken out against them.

Fooling a while with those cloaks,
WTS has usually 1a set of a no-cloak
and one cloak-able ship - the cloak 1
with worse stats in handling, shielding and weapons.
Result: almost no one uses those cloak ships.

IMHO it would be cool to have
- shields keeping completely off-line while cloaked
(maybe at least drop shield once more, when uncloaking)
- cloaks using power
and
- something like weaponsmoddb for scanner - cloak relation

PS:
And weapons keeping off-line till the end of the uncloaking process
or even a second or 3 longer.
