Anyone have an idea how to mod sell prices?

I want to make sell refunds much lower compared to prices. Where in the game assets would I do this?

Re: Looking for ship mods comparable to the vanilla FTL ship

Thanks for the suggestions, will look into them all. Of course there is a degree of grey area in 'novelty', as you could say some of the vanilla ships are novelty because of their strangeness and unique strategy. So overly strong ships are the ones I'm avoiding most (like on the level of Crystal B o...

Looking for ship mods comparable to the vanilla FTL ships

I'll be browsing this forum, but thought I'd ask to perhaps find some quickly.

Not novelty ships, or ships that are overly powerful. But rather ships that mirror the vanilla ones in capability and play style. Thanks for any suggestions.

Re: Post your best ship setup

Fed A, full cloak, full artillery, 3 BLII and a Flak I with pre-igniter and automated reloader. 26 system power with the 1 zoltan (who happened to be the Envoy) imgur album with full size images, plus score screen http://imgur.com/a/6h5qm#0 http://i.imgur.com/WFzvgeB.jpg http://i.imgur.com/NYY9huN.j...

Re: What would you do now?

My course of action: Buy mantis, your guys are weak vs boarders plus you don't have a large crew, really. A mantis can really help you fend off the boarding drones in the 2nd flagship stage. Save the rest. Alternatively, don't buy the mantis and just save it all. Your goal should be level 4 shields ...

Re: Are stores making the game too luck dependent?

I wouldn't say you should blame stores, it's more how imbalanced weapons are, and how they are very often the most determining factor in a game (other than the player ofc) That said, while your win % will almost undoubtedly be lower in games you don't find Flak/BLII/small bomb/ion bomb, etc., you ca...

Re: Poll: best ship on hard difficulty (other than Crystal B

I find plenty of instances where the leto hits and does nothing to the system - no shields down, no weapons down - just 1 damage to the enemy hull, due to there being one 'extra' unpowered bar on that system. Just about any other 1 bar weapon is better, with the Heavy Laser I or Ion Blast I being i...

Re: Poll: best ship on hard difficulty (other than Crystal B

"The Zoltan A still needs something to do reasonable damage by Sector 3-4; this is more reliable with Hacking, but still a definite issue." This isn't necessarily true, you have the leto missile which can certainly bring enemy shields at those sectors down to 1 bubble. Of course the missil...

Poll: best ship on hard difficulty (other than Crystal B)

I haven't decided yet, I'm going to test out what other people suggest. But I am going to put one up for consideration... Zoltan A. It is extremely 'self-sufficient', requiring few fortunate turns (weapons, systems, etc.) for a successful run. It's incredibly strong early game, which is I think a mu...

Re: Zoltan Cruiser A

Zoltan A is an extremely strong ship, I'd say within the top 5 on hard difficulty. So far I've won the good majority of my games with it. The Halberd beam now is one of the most consistent weapon layouts for transitioning into mid game, because hacking compliments it so well. You don't have to go st...
