I like those husks. I wish there were more of them. Could you make a derelict crystal ship for the crystal pod event?

Also, maybe those husks should have an FTL jammer to keep you there longer.

I might not be looking right, but I don't think the heavy scatter laser mk 2 does 3 hull damage, despite saying that in the description. I picked one up and used it and I swear it didn't kill a ship with 3 hull left. Might just be me being blind though, but could you check?

And maybe rename them to "hulks", rather than husks? Husks are the leaves covering the outside of an ear of corn. :)

Are there any weapons/augments/drones etc. that one should grab if they have the chance? I like all the new stuff that CE adds, but I feel that a lot of the weapons aren't very good or useful. Scatter laser is cool, but why not just go with a normal laser that can damage systems as well?

Burst Laser III's rock. 8-)

And so do Heavy Laser II's. I took out the Boss with a pair of them earlier today (in addition to a Bomb II and a beam drone)

I think husks has more than 1 meaning.

I happened to come across another bug similliar to the previously mentioned mantis one. (copypaste the image to another section)

The crew are all female humans, has something happened to the race spawns ever since you added the Engi/AI thing? I also came across AIs when fighting zoltan ships. Is that supposed to happen?

""Hello. We used our last FTL fuel to jump to this station." They indicate a burnt out husk of debris and warped metal. "As you can see the war must have spread to this sector. We've been stranded ever since."


This is all very confusing. Corn in space? And isn't Hulk this green guy from the avengers? Well anyway, I'll change that.

Rock ships in human hands are not intended, I look into that. But Zoltan and Engi are intended to usually employ some AIs on their ships.

Indeed it does.
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/husk
"A shell or outer covering, especially when considered worthless."
The word "husk" is very often used to describe a derelict ship in sci-fi.
