Re: My first life in Faster than Light

Killed in sepia. Next time they board your ship my friend, you open up ALL the door and airlocks except the medbay. Close the medbay doors to keep the air in. Make sure it's powered and send your crew in there. It only holds 3 people so if you have a bigger crew you'll need to keep another room clos...

Re: Whining

I'm also sometimes surprised by the odd enemy that hands me my near-bulletproof ass. You get in over your head sometimes. A couple of tips: - Train the person manning the engines early on to boost your FTL recharge. They get REALLY fast. - Invest in 3rd level teleport for airless boarding. 2nd level...

Re: Repair Arm

You never desperately need to find a store to repair. The scrap lost in self-repairing if offset by having much higer chances of survival.

Re: Last time I name my characters.

What's so laughable about the fastest charging beam in the game? Esp. when you're kinda in a hurry before the cloak runs out. It can do 4 damage if you squeeze it tight. Nice weapon.

Re: Enemy ships can warp away without a pilot

The Autopilot is very usefull when you have a small crew and need to repair lots of damaged systems, and when you get boarded and MUST run away into the medbay while decompressing the ship.

Re: FTL Video thread.

I'll start with my own unsuccesfull attempt in an unshielded Stealth Cruiser. Got pretty far with only a single weapon upgrade and zippo shieldieng.
