Do you have a question on map editing, how use the map manager or want to make your new map public? Post here.

i was wondering is it possible to makes ships and stations owned by the map or derelict cloaked until you use a sensor ability to find it?

i placed romulan turrets and they do it automatically without needing a cloak generator station. but i couldnt get it to with other stuff (when checking the phased cloak box in the advanced settings, couldnt see another box unless iv blind to it)

iv also tried adding extra special energy and giving them a cloak generator to that team but doesnt work


if anyone could shed some light on this issue it would be greatly appreciated thanks

To do so you'd need to modify the cloaking device of the vessel: initialCloak = 1 flag must be set. :)

you will have to forgive me for my complete lack of knowledge to this subject, but where do i need to place that command? is it meddling with the files of the game rather than just in the editor?(double clicking the unit menu)

as the map im using it for id like to keep it so that its playable to others should i think its good enough to put up here. :sweatdrop:

Yes, you'd have to manipulate the game files I'm afraid.

ah, darn. does that mean its technically a mod for fleetops for someone to download rather than just a map?

Yes, it would have to be a modification :).

i did just manage to place some klingon ships and 2 out of 3 cloaked themselves (i assume because i did what tyler said about activating the map while still in editor)
viewtopic.php?f=23&t=11911&view=unread#unread

and i changed their orders settings (tho they sat there until i detected them and fired on them)
also it made them send the borg cube to help them from the other side of the map.

still.. im 1 step closer to making missions in the skirmish mode!
