Default URGENT: Will mines explode if friendly ships move

Hey everyone, i need urgent help.
I have a planet mined with 11 mines and an ally is about to move 6 colonyships into the sector with the mines. Will the mines trigger when the colonyships move into them ? The treaty we have is standart "non-aggression".

The friendly colonyships will reach the sector within the next turn, if i self-destruct the mines now, will they still explode or will the self-destruction take place after the ships movement ?

THANKS a bunch !!

Mines only detonate against ships owned by an empire with which you have no treaty, a non-intercourse treaty, or a state of war.

Non-agression treaty and higher ones allow allied ships to travel through minefields. War "treaty", None "treaty" and Non-intercourse don't allow it.

Oh, one Last question: Do minelayers have to decloak in order to lay mines ? If so, can i manually order them to:

1. uncloak
2. laymines
3. cloak

within 1 turn, so the enemy wont notice them except he does the turn movement replay thingy ?

5.9.1. You can launch/recover fighters/mines(not recover)/satellites, transfer cargo (or population), resource mine while cloaked. (from FAQ)

However, cloak order in simultaneous is instant, so I think it's impossible to do sequence "decloak-lay mines-cloak again". Let alone it's not nessesary.

Just do not forget that mineSWEEPERs need to decloak. Best is not to equip them with cloaking armor - learned that the hard way...
