If you are evasive can you cloak while evasive
5 p3 a says you cannot use evasive while fading or cloaked
5 p3 d. Says evasive voids a cloak
Which is true

Can you Begin cloaking while evasive, if so when you drop evasion are you immediatly cloaked if you are past the fade period. Are you fading if in the fade period. Or is you ship not evasive, not cloked or fading.
What is the status when you drop evasive. Are you immediatly where you would be in the cloaking routine, or are you naked not fading or not cloaked and begin fading in the other functions phase.

Can you go evasive while cloaked or fading.

5p3 d sentence :if a cloak is voided, it remains voided for 4 impules. has this been changed? if it has could you please post what it has been changed to.


Thanks
Nicole

My copy of the FC reference rules says:

Quote:
(5P3a) During a fade-in/out impulse, or
when fully cloaked, the ship cannot: ...(without voiding the cloak) use Evasive Maneuvers.


So the rule is consistent. You can use EM, but if you do, the cloak stops working. I think that if you were evasive during the fade-out impulse, and dropped EM, your cloak would still be voided for four impulses, but when that was over your cloak would be fully on.
