Though I do not like the idea of using cloaking for invading, I do understand the reasoning behind it. Thus I thought of Battle Scanners for the Solar Cannon, or Battle Beacons. They would work as follows. You can buy them just the same as any other beacon. They can be deployed on any colony or even in space. They would use the same principle of line of sight as lasers cannons do, but with a MUCH longer range. Once a Battle Beacon detects a ship then the Solar Cannon would lock on and begin to fire. How ever if said ship was to go around a corner out of sight of the beacon then the Solar Cannon would stop. Battle Beacons can be destroyed just the same as a cannon can be with 2 nukes.
This should restore some balance to the initial stages of invading. While still making the Cap easy once the Beacons have been destroyed.
