Re: why attack anything but weapons?

If they've got hacking on your shields or weapons, that is often the first thing to try to take out. If they've got a lot of shields and not much damage potential, I'll go all out for the shields first, then bridge. If they've got a lot of damage potential, but not much shields, I'd go for that firs...

Re: Wipe non advanced edition scores

It used to be the case that if going for a high score you'd do the system normally, then go back to every system and clear out the rebels from each. You'd get just one fuel from each, which enables you to keep going, no scrap, but score from killing ships. It didn't help you materially in any way, b...

Wipe non advanced edition scores

Is there a way to get rid of standard edition scores? I used to regularly troll the rebels to get silly scores in the standard mode (generally with the basilisk or shivan). However, this is not possible any more. All my high scores are still there though, and there's no way to ever beat them. All my...

Re: Needs FTL Multiplayer

OMG : http://www.microsoft.com/multipoint/mouse-sdk/developer.aspx

This supports 25 mice connected to a single computer. I think I would actually pay money to watch a game of FTL with twenty five people trying to control it.

Re: Needs FTL Multiplayer

Computers can already support multiple mice (I had three connected to my PC recently trying to diagnose some mouse problems, and they all worked at the same time). Having two people trying to control the same pointer in FTL sounds like a vision of hell to me. Multiple pointers is another matter, but...

Re: Missiles in the games

You could just make missiles dirt cheap to buy, but I guess that would make bombs all the more attractive. In my opinion, the biggest problem with missiles is that there is a defence against them, in drones. A well equipped player ship with 2 bombs and 2 lasers can't be countered by the AI ships. A ...

Re: Shield backup help!

Your shield should charge automatically, nothing can damage your shields permanently in FTL. At the bottom is the power assigned to each system... right click to lower power, left click to raise it. Shields work in multiples of two - two power bars equate to one shield, so one power bar in shields d...

Re: [Suggestion] Fixing the Broken and Bad Ships

And since you start with four weapon power you can swap it out for basically anything if you get lucky with the RNG. Max stealth and some engines, double burst laser II and off you go to at least sector six before anything is likely to cause you any trouble. Your advice is to grab double burst lase...
