Alright, you cloak up. You're signalled. You decloak, you're signalled. Simple, right?

Signalled? Pardon? What are you trying to say?

It sounds like you're removing the COVERT aspect of cloaking

I am not sure to understand? Do you mean that each time someone is cloaking in the system everybody are warned.
So if a fleet of bombers are coming they can flood the chan just with their cloaks?

No I don't agree.

assuming a stealth nerf cloaking thread -- should be posted here

Assuming a "hey pilot, I know... I'm cloaking" local notification thing, then that's not all bad.

One of the bitter points of a good bittervet is the realisation that all those SP don't really do much, and that the newbie is having much more fun with what little he has. - Tippia

I think OP meant that player should get some kind of sound notification when his own ship cloaks/decloaks. I dont mind if new Aura voice notifications added: "You've cloaked", "You've uncloaked".

Opinions are like assholes. Everybody got one and everyone thinks everyone else's stinks.

Yea that's it. They want an indication of when they cloak and decloak. Nothing to do with others in the system, purely a personal client thing.

but ur module flashes on the hud when ur cloaked...

did u get de-cloaked while u were afk/alt tabbed? not much sympathy for u if that is the case.

Wait...is this a BUFF afk-cloaking thread? Them's rare, they is.

De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.

I would REALLY like more apparent notification of cloaking/decloaking.
Something similar to WoW's "low HP" or "loss of control" notification.
A gradient mask underlying the UI, making the screen edges fade to black.
And this is not limited to covert cloaking. More apparent notification of a gate cloak timer/fade out would be very valuable for everyone, I bet.

already exist, both visually (twice) and sound

a cloacking / uncloacking ship emits a specific sound

a ship appears / vanish when uncloacking / cloacking

never noticed that a module (like say, cloacking device) is giving you and indication whether it is running, stopped, or stopping?

hint: it blink green when running, blink red when turning off, no colour when inactive.

sometime, i wonder if one even play eve before posting such things....

I don't hear it. (I'm deaf/in battle/zoomed too far/add your case)

Quote:

You always, and I mean, absolutely always zoomed up close, to ever notice this effect? I, myself, like it, but I have to intentionally zoom in to watch it, when it happens.
So, not a notification by any means.

Not enough, since they removed the "cinematic" view option.

It's just not visible on screen.

I do, too, wonder, if you came here to present an argument, or to troll people.

I'd like a vocal notification (with an on/off check box)
and a timer for when you can re-cloak, similar to session change timers

For posting an idea into F&I: come up with idea, try and think how people could abuse this, try to fix your idea - loop the process until you can't see how it could be abused, then post to the forums to let us figure out how to abuse it..... If your idea can be abused, it [u]WILL[/u] be.

well, i presented, in fact, 3 arguments that prove you that what you are asking is already present in the game, thus it is not relevant to dedicate development time on such futile things

maybe you would like CCP to send you a text on your phone + mail "you are uncloacked"?

Oooh. You guys took me completely wrong. You know that notification you get when you're low in shield or armor? One similiar for when you decloak. It'd really help for those times when some moron decloaked you in fleet.

Literally the equivalent of telling CCP to have never have introduced the shield/armor/hull notifications because you can hear yourself being shot at when your ship is zoomed in.
