Default Cloaking bonuses do not apply (Fixed in 0.917)

I've tested this in game, and I've found that regardless of cloak or not, my Shadow ship does exactly the same damage with kinetic weapons. If I am to believe the text on the cloak, I'm supposed to have +200% crit chance and +200% kinetic damage, neither of which applies.

This is easily tested by wiping out a planets defenders and then firing on the planet with a kinetic weapon. First without cloak and list the damage done, then activating the cloak and seeing the exact same numbers and no increased crit rating.

Anyone else noticed this? Or do you just not play cloak-and-dagger style?

Will cloaking bonuses only apply to kinetic weapons?

Also, is Deadly Aim suffering from the same bug?

The cloaking device specifically lists +% kinetic damage, so I assume that is by design, yes.

When things added bonus fire damage in Din's Curse, it was to all weapons, which is why I'm asking.

I think that was more of a "+12 fire damage" than "+200% Kinetic Damage". The difference being the %-age sign.

It will work on all weapons and it won't mention Kinetic damage any more.

I believe deadly aim was being affected in the same way.
