Re: Best Weapon Combos

Ion 3 + Glaive Beam/Burst Lasers

The Ion 3 makes sure those shields stay down while you deliver the pain train. Also quicker than the Vulcan and easier to get going again if disrupted.

I haven't had a good run with the Ion 3 though. Mostly because the bad guys drop BS bombs on my important systems.

Re: Dumb ways to die!

How about this: Crystal Cruiser Type B. Hard Mode First jump - Solar Flare. Ok, not bad. No wait, there's an Automated Scout! Ok, maybe I can escape from... The Scout also has a Mind Control device. Fu-fu-fu-fu-fu... You don't even need to wait for your ship/crew to die horribly. You just reset and ...

Re: Dumb ways to die!

^ This. That event with weapon's license issues (or even the border checkpoint but I should always choose to fight instead of submitting to profiling. Always. But I don't because... derp.) ALWAYS screws over what may have been a good run. Especially when they also have a Clone Bay. So you defeat all...

Re: Charlie & The Flagship Factory - Tale of the Nesasio

Part 2 - An Envoy's Path is still under construction. It's not complete and undergoing revisions like the previous chapters, I'm still working on it :D Just so you know, Ruwen isn't going to die to the Great Eye's BS outcome. That would be too cruel. "Oh hey, we just got a crystal" "B...

Re: Charlie & The Flagship Factory - Tale of the Nesasio

Normally I write these several chapters in advance. Close to submitting a new one, I go and edit the old ones a little. Not in this case. The literary Rebel Fleet is closing in on me, like one jump away. Chapters may take longer to be put out there as I'm editing closer to the fleet. In fact, this c...

Re: Rate the shop Augmentations

Can I put my 2 Scrap in for my dislike for the FTL Jammer. There's rarely ever a situation where I need to use it as I quickly board a ship or destroy it before it jumps. Some get away and I wish I had the jammer but then again, I blame the RNG for not letting my weapons hit them in the first place....

Re: Ranking the C ships

The way I see things, Hard is for dedicated boarding ships. If the ship hasn't got Lanius, Mantis swarms or Crystals, it's a gimmick. Kestrel C - No opinion on this one. Haven't used it probably because it's not as fun as the Red-Tail. Engi C - Fun, but again gimmicky. 4000+ victory on Normal I gues...

Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.23/Inf 1.23/EL 1.23

I've got this other suggestion: During one of my runs, I ran out of fuel and I had to wait for relief to drop by and hand me some fuel. I found this Rock freighter drifting along and I sent a team out. Next thing you know, there's this Rock holding my crew for ransom. Give him scrap or someone dies....

Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.23/Inf 1.23/EL 1.23

Excellent mod, love what it's done for the game and really makes each playthrough more unique than ever (although I wish I could encounter AI sectors more often. So many runs, and I always seem to encounter at least one quarantine sector after I've swapped out medical for clones). I don't know if th...
