Back in December I gave some tips and tricks for using mobile depots. A reader commented that as long as you are 2500m away from it, you can stay cloaked and still use it. I tried it, and he was right (the fitting range on a mobile depot is 3000m).
It always seemed a little strange that you couldn’t load ammo or access secure containers in inventory while cloaked, but you could refit modules and even subsystems. But I still made modest use of the feature by swapping out my covert subsystem and cloaking device last.
I guess CCP thought it was a little strange as well so that feature is removed in Rubicon 1.3.6
Ships and Modules
- Cloaked ships are no longer able to use the extended fitting range of a Mobile Depot to refit whilst still cloaked.
