Re: Burst Laser Mk 3 is UP

I don't know what point Gorlom was trying to prove with his big math post, but the summary at the bottom is the complete opposite from a conclusion I got to on my own. Let me make one of my own to try to make a clear point. BL1: 2 power / 2 shots / 11s reload = 10,9 DPM BL2: 2 power / 3 shots / 12s ...

Walking through Blast Doors

When telling a friendly crew member on an enemy ship to move to another room and a blast door is in the way, it's possible to just walk right though by clicking on other rooms in the direction you want to go. Each click will cause your crew to take a step in that direction moving through the door, a...

Re: Your dumbest FTL moments

"Rockmen are immune to fire, right? *launches Fire Bomb into the middle of the room I'm fighting enemy crew in"

Apparently the explosion itself can still damage Rockmen.

Re: Idea for Multiplayer

How would you stop the game from becoming "Whoever launches their Ion bomb first wins"?

Re: 5 shields?

I've seen an AI ship with 4.5 shields, but never a full 5. I can only assume that ships in a given sector are given roughly the same number of upgrades. But since AI ships don't need O2, Door Control, Medbays, or Crew Teleporters, the points that would have otherwise been used on that get spend on m...

Repair-Bot Dispersal? [Spoil?]

After finishing a fight by teleporting a Breach Bomb II into a medbay to kill off the remaining enemies, I noticed something really odd that I've never seen before. The hull breach caused by the bomb started to repair itself, despite the crew being dead and the fight over. Is this some kind of ship ...

Re: Enemy ship flees with my mantises on board

My only issue is that the two Mantis can't kick the crap out of the human after the jump, and then just charge the FTL and jump back. I understand the game isn't designed to account for this (I don't think even a mod could do it), but it just seems so silly to lose fights that have basically already...

Re: Is FTL Permadeath prepping anyone else for XCOM?

XCOM will probably have frequent saves though.

I'm picturing it to be more like Fire Emblem than a roguelike. I could be wrong though.

Re: Repair Arm

My only issue is having a repair arm drain scrap when the hull is already at full health. Does it still impose the scrap penalty if there is no need to repair?

Re: Whining

I would bet a single missile/bomb weapon would have saved your butt, or at least give you a much better fighting chance. Plus between dodging and high shields, non-beam drones and lasers are hilariously weak. For future reference though, there is a not-very-obvious trick to dealing with drones. You ...
