I fly a lot of frigates, so I tend to crash gates quite often. Since we have a session-change timer which is very important, would it be possible to also get an invulnerability/cloak timer so that we know how much longer we can hold cloak before that 1 minute is up?

a sort of timer would be nice, or something imediately warning you when being uncloaked, the normal uncloaking animation is too soft to notice right away that you are now visible

You have a session change timer which is now only 15 seconds What? I think that's enough Lol

we should show session timers whenever there is a session change.

I don't think it displays when you change ships in a station, but it will still fail if you try to clone jump during a session change cooldown...

... so show it!

There isn't a session change when you change ships in a station, so why would there be a timer?

IIRC there still is the session change timer ... but it's not ship to ship anymore.

If you dock and do nothing, you can insta undock.
If you dock and reship, you have to wait out the timer before you undock ("preparing to enter space" bar just takes longer).

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

That would be beautiful.

Most annoying thing of the week: You failed to dock/jump because you are cloaked (in your Deep Space Transport).
