Re: The Vega

A regular folder is not a file at all, just a location. If he could turn a folder into a .ftl file I'd call black magic. :roll: What did you do TheSwiftTiger?

Re: Shops and distress signals are a trap?

It's really not as bad as you describe. Shops are a guaranteed safe beacon, so they are useful if you have to run from a sun/asteroid field/nasty fight. Preferable to backtracking. Also, unless you get really lucky, shops are the only way for you to pick up an early Scrap Recovery Arm (and a number ...

Re: The Vortex[tips]

Stealth B and Engi B are entirely different beasts. While piloting the DA-SR 12, you know you can win (or if you must run); you just rely on the AI not sniping your Weapons and Cloak at the same time. OTOH, you just feel like you're under-powered with the Engi B the entire run.

Re: My personal strategy

I think I've gotten good at killing crews WITHOUT boarding, especially in the later sectors where I have quite a bit of leeway in terms of hull points. Knowing what the AI takes priority in fixing is key. Most of the time, it's by simple laser spam, preferably with a Hull Laser II involved. Focusing...

Re: [SHIP]Hayabusa Class Battlecruiser (NEW TYPE 2!!!)

Here's the modified .ftl file: http://dropcanvas.com/#NR3I42670nS0mT The Type-1 Ion+Assault Drone combo is a little strong. Maybe I should replace the Assault with a regular Anti-Ship I. I don't really want to remove Ion Drone, since there's no weaker equivalent in game. Maybe only give it one ion p...

Re: [SHIP]Hayabusa Class Battlecruiser (NEW TYPE 2!!!)

Oh, I want to try that. I've always wanted to dive into modding. Let's see, the current starting loadouts are Hayabusa A (12 starting power, 0 missiles, 20 drone parts, Augment: Drone Recovery Arm, Drone Reactor Booster, FTL Jammer) Helm [] Sensors [] Doors [][] Shields [][] Engine [] Oxygen [] Medb...

Re: New Enemy Classes 0.95

Another minor error: the Slug Infiltrator has the bottom-left weapon mount backwards (not sure about how they are ordered).

Re: What do you wish was in FTL?

I know what you meant, but inexplicable means it can't be explained, NOT that it wasn't.

So you want the FTL tutorial to explain the mysteries of the universe? :lol: Sounds like the start of a new religion.

Re: NEED HELP

Or maybe lift something from Better Asteroids mod? the asteroids are slightly higher quality.

Re: [Ship] The Junkyard (fixed link V2)

I think this ship has a very vanilla feel to it, both in terms of aesthetics and balance. I just tried a run with her, and ended up with possibly the best shield strippers to go with a dropped Glaive Beam: Ion Bomb + BL2. I cut through the Flagship like Butter. Got like 5 Rockmen in a row though, so...
