Re: Don't understand why some people don't like FTL's gamepl

Firstly to answer your questions from my point of view. I do understand that all things are relative to your own point of view - some will love, some will not. 1, Too Hard - Good. Games tend to be too easy now and nothing worth well is easy to do. Try doing an oil painting and you'll find that out o...

Re: Crew Teleporter.

To be successful at teleporting you need to have at least teleporter level 2 (and sensors level 2 or 3), and Mantis or Rockmen (Humans are fine but they need to escape a bit). Take out their med bay FIRST before the shields and then send them into the enemies medbay. If they have a lot of crew telep...

Re: Maxing out all ship systems; anyone done it yet?

It would be easy if you did not get Teleporters, cloak or drones.

I thought I'd failed...

Just finished a play-through of Red-Tail(Kestrel variant B) and in the first two sectors I lost all but one of my crew. I had so much scrap - I thought I had had it. Still I soldiered on and on. As I went on I gained a Three Shields, Full Engine, Glaive Beam, Heavy Laser I, Burst Laser II and a Smal...

Re: [MOD] Hold the Line

This is a VERY good idea. Have you thought of making the delay random? between 2-6 so it would be more interesting?

Re: List of things people don't like [From Reddit thread]

I have to speak up a little about this game. I love it all and how it stands, at present, with me rates a 9.5 out of 10. I like how it is a short play game, even with quit saves the game plays enough for a father of two to do without having to write down.. what I need to do next time I play this is ...

Re: Update v1.0 & v1.01 - Very few changes

I'd like to vote for a "sandbox" mode, personally. Or, perhaps, a nonlinear mode ala Firefly- just a ship and its' crew, trying to make their way through an uncaring 'verse. With occasional plot thrown in- but that'd be more like an expansion pack or a sequel, given the (probable, I have ...

Re: How do you use stealth ship effictly?

How I use it is use the cloak to dodge the enemy's volleys.

Boost up your engines to as high as possible so you can dodge most of the incoming salvo's.

Also remember you WILL get a good beating in most battles so at times it's best to avoid fights.

Re: What's your favourite Weapon/System/Sub-System?

I love the cloaking device. VERY handy at level 3.

Some do not like it, but it REALLY does help especially if you have the augment "Stealth Weapons".

Re: Which is your favourite ship?

I like the Red-Tail. The diverse crew and the excellent layout to funnel boarders is awesome. The four basic lasers are excellent to start off with, but can be a pain to get the good upgrades. mind my current play through has got a glaive beam and the Burst Laser III. ;)
