one time my textures bugged out and my viator was entirely bright white when cloaked.

as the pilot, i liked it much better than invisible.

This is exactly what I was thinking with the graphics bug people often have. The first thing I thought to to myself was, "This... is actually beneficial to me. It should always be like this."

It would be more interestening to have the possibilty to have a cross and a speed vector that would help you to see where your ship is going.

I would prefer a "hidden line removed wireframe" to show the contours of the ship

because the new manticore is just to damn sexy to NOT SEE 3/4 of the time

I would prefer a indication my ship is cloaked above the HUD

This is actually one of the better suggestions I've seen in a while.

This would really help during gate jumping and cloaking. Ship alignment can be the difference between life and death. In darker systems its often hard to tell which way your ship is facing.
