I just came up with an idea for the Romulans, a building cloak thing. First, i want to know if its possible, and how, and then i reveal my plans. (muhahaha)
Well it should be possible, the Stock A2 Romulan stations had cloak (but it was commented out)
Do you mean "give each station a cloaking device" or "a seperate cloaking station with a large area of effect"?
"each station a cloaking device" I want a special 'Shade' research building that researches Station Cloak and Turret Cloak (for the Spy sattelite, plasma cannon and the other thing), and maybe more.
I tried de-commenting it, but that just adds the cloak button that does absolutly nothin when you click it.
Add "gkcloak" as a weapon and give it a hardpoint for that particular thing and voila! Each station/ship has a cloaking device, but I warn you, you will have to give said objects special energy otherwise it'll be useless! To make a cloaking device to be researched, go into the techtree 1.1 and go down to special weapons, then, I suppose, you change it to what you want, however only one cloaking device (that I know of) was made, so, each race would need the station of another race to build it...or, you could get each research station of every race applicable in the requirements, but i don't know if that'll work.
Your idea, funnily enough, i was going to implement on my mod for some of the romualns...lol
anyhow, hope the above helps, if not...then...errrm...I'll try harder :)
Aum, another question, how do you add special energy? (im an idiot :D )
Uhm, i figured it out. (im a real idiot :rolleyes: ) I now need some buttons (station cloak, turret cloak, cunstruction cloak and civilian cloak (Repair and cargo ships)), a research station, and some research pods. The last two will be the hardest, me thinks, unless you guys have some of them.
Oh..so what you want to do is give each particular type a cloak, but at the same time, will there be any differences in the cloaks???
No, only that they have to be researched apart.
Although that is a nice concept, I doubt very much that different types of vehicles will use different cloaks, more like a factory mass produced cloak installed into every ship...
