How does radar work?
Do you have to stay still for radar to operate? I select it on my ships equipped with radar but it seems to rarely do anything, and then only when not moving.
I have a hard time understanding when defensive things activate also, like cloak and all that. It seems as if the move commands are interrupting them. I'm also unsure as to what has priority or if you have to stay still.
Brings up another question I have.. is there not any way to tell if the cloak is active? I click it but I am still auto targeted..

i.e. Step 1. Select Radar Module
Step 2. Click on the picture of the radar ping that appears.
Took me a couple turns to figure it out as well. If you're using a computer the mouseover text should say something like "activate cloak/radar ping". I'm not sure what it does on a tablet.
Thanks for the reply - I don't think I would ever have figured that out. Where is the manual for this game?
