I have just uploaded a change to the last ship seen device that should have been in there from the start. It is something we had planned for a long time but seem to have forgotten to add.

The LSS device is tied directly into your sensors and uses your sensors to detect the last engine trail in the sector. That is how it has always worked but there is a twist.

A players ship cloak will now MASK your trail as you move through a sector.

What this means is your LSS device may not pickup a ship trail if the ship that passed through had a high enough cloak masking it's engine trail compared to your ships sensors.

An example would be if you had level 30 sensors on your ship and you entered a sector where a ship with a level 30 cloak had just passed through. Your LSS device might report that no ship could be detected. It works just like trying to scan a ship that is in the same sector only your LSS device is trying to pick up a masked engine trail.

Now that is cool as hell! Well done guys.


Maybe a tech upgrade for research can be Cloak + Distortor (it reports a false warp trail like other peoples names or wrong sectors...). Just an idea! :)
