Found a weird bug today. My fleet arrived in a system as ordered, but one of my cruisers was cloaked. I found this a tad strange, as the class doesn't have any cloaking components whatsoever. I checked the rest of the cruisers and found I could cloak and uncloak them as well. All were of the same class. Did I hit some sort of componant combo or is this just a bug?

Does this design have a master computer? The "difficult to detect by telepathic means" ability they have is actually a psychic cloaking ability. It's completely worthless if you don't also have at least a minimal level of EM active and EM passive cloaking as well, but it's the specific defense against psychic cloak detection.

That's probably it. At least it seems to be so in my case. While we're here, is there any way you can keep your units from sometimes stopping after going through a warp point? (Even if its a normal one which doesn't damage then or anything?) It doesn't seem to matter what kind or how many orders I give them.

Go to Empire Status (F11) -> Empire Options and look for "Ships should clear their orders upon entering a system containing an enemy presence" in the Ship Orders category. This option is on by default and is probably the cause of your problem.

Also make sure "ships clear orders on any presence is off too, or that will cause problems. Wink

Thanks, that appears to have been the problem. If only I'd known this 40 ships ago...

That might be it, however, the cloak function was not available to these ships until they got to the rally point.
