Make the active sov upgrades visible on the Solar System Sovereignty info tab.

I like how you made afk cloaky camping an integral part of fozzie sov -
"well we shall cloaky camp the region for a months to drive down the ADM so we have a better attack time frame. And remember people i want your ships afk cloaked 23/7 cause its not like CCP has an inactivity timer for AFK booting"

While I wholeheartedly support the reduction/elimination of cloaky camping (trust me, I get it, I have one of these in my primary ratting system right now!), I really do not want to see an AFK logoff implemented. The number of accounts many of us combined with the cumbersome nature of the login process makes only having to log in our accounts once per downtime a godsend.

It would be very annoying to get booted off while waiting out a jump fatigue timer, or have my trader alt kicked off because I idled for the last hour, or get logged off if I idle in a POS while I go eat dinner.

Not to mention that EVE has many mechanics that enforce waiting for things (cyno cycles, entosis cycles, wait for structure to anchor / online, jump fatigue, etc)

A cloak generally should give you a high security, but not a perfect one. As a counter to cloaking there should be a specialized scanner, afk playstyle outside of stations/pos has to be removed.

Change cloaks to have a cycle time and a max # of cycles. Having a reset clock every 30min is ideal in my head. If u need to go afk for longer u are forced to logoff. Either that or a scan probe that can search. If u are active and bouncing then no problem for them but afk in a merlin....boom.

Actually Agree. You should be able to scan down cloaked ships, just make it painfully long so only AFK people get probed down.

Like 60 Seconds or something. You could actually have an alert for a cloaked guy who has been scanned down on his side, and then the prober has a timer before you can warp to target.
