As the topic says, if you warp in to any area with a gas cloud you are decloaked by it and cannot cloak again because of the cloud 2000m from you.

Is this by design? Because it's making warping into sites in WH space very dangerous given 1. The Covert ships are designed to do probing and 2. The sleeper turrets can melt one at 80k in one volly.


Tried warping in at 100k, still get tagged by the cloud on the way in.

Yes. It is intentionally by design. And have always been so.

I am aware that objects decloak you by design. I was asking more if having just about every ladar site decloak you just because they have a gas cloud was deliberate or is it an unforseen effect of having the gas cloud be an actual physical object.

Every gas cloud site I've seen is a Ladar. I don't recall being uncloaked by anything except a ladar site.
