Re: [MOD - WIP] Star Trek Addon

When I first started playing this game (and obsessively yelling things at my crew like "Get more power to the shields!" and "Beam 'em onto the enemy cruiser!") my girlfriend asked "is this game basically Star Trek or what?" and I had to agree with her thinking. This mod...

Re: Suggestions to improve gameplay and interface

While I feel like some of the suggestions in this thread are legitimate interface oversights, overall a lot of these feel like they'd just make the game too easy. Frantic multi-tasking is part of the fun!

Your dumbest FTL moments

We all do it. You're caught in the heat of battle, your heart is racing, your fingers are flying, you're pausing and unpausing so fast you're afraid your spacebar is gonna fall off, and then in that critical moment realize that you just did something incredibly stupid. This is the thread to share yo...

Re: [MOD-WIP] Obsidian Cruiser

Weapons level IV is a huge boon, so and considering the other capabilities of the ship I'd say it shouldn't start with any other weapons. It's still gonna kick way more butt than engi b no matter what you do though ;)

Re: What's your favourite Weapon/System/Sub-System?

Teleporter all the way. While it's gotten me in trouble a few times, boarding has been overall my best strategy to dealing with tricky or otherwise unwinnable situations.

Re: Strategy to maximize scrap

Scrap arms! Keeping 40 scrap handy before each store is enough to get you one, and if you can get two or three, all the better, then just sell and replace them as you go. In an ideal game this should be one of your first purchases (though obviously this isn't always possible). Other than that, I agr...

Re: [MOD-WIP] Obsidian Cruiser

I like the looks of this idea so far and just have one question. Will you be able to use the "gravity-well" from the beginning of the game? If not, what other weapons will you start with? Other than that, looking forward to the completion of this mod (and not just because engi B is my leas...

Re: A game I've been waiting for, Thank you for developing

I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiments of this thread. I don't often get excited about new games coming out, and I'm far more the type to wait for a sale than to buy something when it's new, but this is one of the few games that I simply couldn't wait for. Of course anticipation is nothing if th...
