Invisible Cloaks

PostAuthor: Gorgon » Wed Oct 22, 2008 5:09 am

It has been possible to make a very minor selection of cloaks invisible for quite some time, but now that we have cloaks with other appearances and 1.69 adds a way to safely(?) modify cloaks to the types that can be made invisible, is there any ruling against doing so?

This is an Avlis specific question, and I know some other worlds already have made their choice. There are many reasons to use an invisible cloak after Bioware made them a mandatory visible equipped item. In my opinion, we did fine without them before the change for years, and having the option is a plus. Does Avlis mind or have a rule against making them invisible?

Until you hear otherwise, all cloaks on Avlis are to remain visible.

This came up in IRC today, and I figured a 6 and a half year later bump and check if it still applies couldn't hurt. Some people probably don't even know there was a restriction on invisible appearance cloak items in Avlis.

Since you can use certain dyes/colors on some cloaks that will make them transparent, as well as off-world places offering to do the job for you, it is easy enough for someone to be running around in one you can't see here. There are also other "cloak" appearances, like hats and so on, which I assume are fine to use, but correct me if I'm wrong.

Moredo said "Until you hear otherwise", so I'll just ask the question again to keep it simple (and bump it). Should PC cloak items on Avlis remain visible when worn?

If things have changed, I'll be happy, but I'll assume this restriction is still in effect.

Can we get the restriction removed please ?
Some characters just look a lot better without it visible (ICly wearing it as shawl).

The matter has been revisited by the team.

The restriction stands.
