Hello and welcome to StarMade,
These new modules were suggestions by people who played the game.
This module has the unique feature, that it will make your ship invisible for an amount of time. The duration of invisibility is determined by the count of cloaking modules on your ship. You will instantly uncloak however if you use any weapon, or get hit. It can be used like a weapon controller and will appear in the weapon assignment panel.
This module works similar to the cloaking module with the difference, that it will remove the HUD indicator for all other players for an amount of time. So using the cloaking module and the Radar Jammer in combination will give players the opportunity, to launch surprise attacks on their enemies, or escape a dangerous situation.
This should be a fun one. Put it on your ship and it will explode on contact with any other block structure. Naturally the target as well as yourself will take huge damage.
Sounding odd at first, the module has a huge tactical value. For example you can stick it on a 'pole' in front of your ship, so your ship is not within the blast radius. Also, you could build mines or just suicide into the death star.
Keep in mind that the balance and price of all modules will change soon. They are pretty cheap at the moment, but that is just to make it easier to try them out.
I'll work on more player suggestions and balancing for the next days. Also, I'm planning to further expand the possibilities of the ship catalog. There is going to be easy to use functions to import and export your ships to share it with other people. Furthermore you will be given the option to make your creation private. There will also be the possibility to upload your creation on a different server from were you build it.
Thanks for playing StarMade,
