# 1 Federation Styled Cloak
12-26-2013, 04:57 PM
There is a monster of a thread asking for built in cloak on 3 Starfleet ships. Please go look at that if you want to speak out on that.

This thread is to talk about how we will make a cloak that is not like the Klingons or Romulans.

My idea is it should be a pure defensive skill so a lot of this will sound crazy.

Battlecloak
No ambush bonus
and pretty sure more things are needed

So what do you think?

Essentially i think so.

Almost like a placate ability, you can still SEE your target, but your weapons and sensors cant lock on.

Emission seeking torpedoes would still work.

Upside, because we wouldnt get a buff to the decloak, we could keep our shields.

Essentially giving us the cloak, but taking away what everyone wants it for

Drat, I was hoping this was a thread for a formal cloak for our characters to wear.

Hmmm...

I'll play.

30 second cooldown.

base 5 hex 'visible' range, (modified by sensors, and things that alter sensors like probes, etc.) weapons may not lock, but science abilities can, and tractor beams/gravity well can pull you out.

No decloak bonuses to the attack.

weapons, shields and Aux go to 5 while it's active-same restrictions as normal cloak regarding shields.

+25 to Threat Control on decloaking.

base .2 % cumulative chance of exploding or causing other system failures. (Fed ships aren't designed to cloak-the console cloaks are installations from a knowledgeable 3rd party contractor. witness the results of FEderation attempts to develop cloaking systems independently-all have ended in lots of dead starfleet crewmen and lost ships.) chance resets at 98%.

There are already trench coats and long coats in the game. The Winter jackets are there, and available to all factions. The romulan veteran outfit is a pretty cool trenchcoat as well.

What's the point then? Anyone who wants to use this "purely defensive" idea will just slot Mask Energy Signature (which they already do!), and everyone else will STILL slot the cloak console.

like the ones on the original BSG. tan with gold trim, or purple with silver trim.

oh, and for the ship cloak, just say no. I'd rather they put a CDR tac slot on the galaxy
