Re: Defense Against Missiles [A How-To Guide]

I think the Autopilot is only ever used when the station is unmanned. It allows the pilot to move and deal with intruders or fires or critical damage. The autopilot bonuses cannot stack with the pilot bonus because either the pilot is manning the station or it's on autopilot. Can't be both. Very thr...

Re: Breach Missiles are bullshit

Ah, my bad. The Hermes is vindicated because of it's extra damage for the same price when compared to the Atremis. You spend fewer missiles to take down an enemy ship, and since missiles are both costly and difficult to obtain at times, it's worth having to reroute some power to save on missile use....

Re: BEAM balance discussion

Well beams may not be autofire friendly but manual timing has its advantages. They hit instantly. And rarley if ever miss. Bursts still have to travel towards the enemy and shields recharge with frightening speed.

Re: Rock Ship strategy?

Bulwark (Rockman ship) starts with 2 rocket launchers. No lasers. You have to use them untill you get an alternative. Boarding being the best since it earns well and Rockmen are good survivors due to their 150hp.

Re: Rock Ship strategy?

Unlucky Scarecrow gives good avice. I'll add some observations as well. Buy missiles at every chance but dont run out of fuel. Ignore Cloak and Drones, grab the Teleporter ASAP. Upgrade it to level 2 for Rockmen and 3 for other boarders. That way you can survive airless boarding. Proceed to board th...

Re: Breach Missiles are bullshit

Is that the one that fires two shots? If it is, it has a good chance of getting past a defense drone.

Re: Stuttering Intel HD

It seems laptops are cursed somehow. I run the game with a desktop i5/HD4000 and it is just sweet. I was worried when i read that HDseries were not officially supported but it seems they only cause probles on laptops or when it's the HD3000 series.

HD4000 runs fine.

Re: Fire spreading illogically

orange border around the room says there's no oxygen. Not under the carpet, not in the drawer, not anywere. Crew suffocates, then so should fire. Both need air to function. It's just a minor imperfection in the code that governs fire spread. You can abstract it to mean the threat and dagner are stil...

Re: The Torus' Engi Med-bot Dispersion augmentation & Med-b

I belive the augment has a fixed healing ability. Upgrading and powering the Medbay will increase healing of crew inside but will not affect the healing effect of the augment.

I could be wrong.

Re: record history/replays

Love it. At least record the achievements and notable events of each crew. I can see my highest ranking crewmembers but i forget what ship they belonged to and what else they did.

Give us a way to reminisce old victories (and cursed failures).
