So I know alphas are never going to get cloaking but it’s a little ridiculous that players can sit on the other side of a wormhole and pick off new players for kicks without any counter.
I suggest making a smoke screen. A group of small probes ( 5, 10, maybe 15 at most) that you can launch out on exiting a jump just before the cloak wares off. They would have the same signature as your ship but only last 5-10 seconds, just enough to warp away in a ship like a venture.
Would this be an unreasonable item to introduce? It would make exploration a lot more feasable for new players. And I can’t see it being game breaking.
