Re: [OVERHAUL - USES HYPERSPACE] FTL: MULTIVERSE Version 3.2 [The Multiverse Update]

I´m liking the options when you start (loving that the first beacon is the hangar btw) but i think there should be a little more balanced, maybe i´m wrong but why should i pick anything else that a free crew member!? Sure it´s just a human but the other choices are a leto and a system repair drone, some ships can´t even use them because they have no missiles or drones.
Maybe add some variety so you can get different weapons, drones and so on or even let me choose them (basic laser, leto and ion blast for example)

Otherwise the one thing that always bothered me with the base game is that missiles are pretty much useless. You´ve done a few good things to make them usable but my question is how do you feel with the state of missiles launcher´s in general!?

There's more than a Leto you can get from starting weapon. There's Mini beam, Ion blast, Heavy laser..

Besides, not all the same ships might want to pick the same option at start. Some need weapons more than crew.

Oh cool, didn´t know that. I thought so because the three times i picked a weapon it was always the leto and when i grabbed the drone (maybe threet times also) it was always system repair. So after the other 40 times i picked a crew member and it was always a human i assumed there is no different outcome.

I thought the weapon is always the leto so it didn´t make sense to pick it over a crew member except in very very special cases.
If there´s variety like you said everything is fine, just bad luck from my few try´s i guess ;)

A lot of people actually thought the starting weapon might be too strong cause it can give some pretty strong weapons like minibeams or pikes. For 3.4 I've narrowed it down to basic laser, small bomb, ion mk I, or mini flak. The crew member option is generally good but some ships need another starting weapon, so its more or less dependent on whatever the ship you're starting with needs. I could probably also make the weapon option give extra missiles too and drone option give some droneparts if that would help (though obviously the drone option is still useless if you don't have drone control.

Missiles are pretty... eehhhhhhhhhhh... balancing them is very very hard to do, there's not too much you can do to buff them for the player without also buffing them for the enemy.

Yeah like i said above, i don´t know about the other weapons and always picked the leto if i ever choose weapons. So i think everything is fine especially if the pool is the four weapons you mentioned. Extra missiles/droneparts if you take the option sounds good imo. Can you tell me what are the drone options are except the system repair drone?

Ok, just wanted to know how you think about them. Like i also said, if you have a ship which is heavy in missile usage i think you make good decisions with the recycler module (thinking of rock a in vanilla which feels pretty bad)


So i asked also if there is a way to include ship specific stats, is this possible for you!? (just sth like a ship specific win/loo ratio for expample?)

Start game drone pool as of 3.2 is combat I, cloaked scanner, or repair drone iirc. As of 3.3 (most likely releasing today) its breach combat, cloaked scanner, or repair drone, as of 3.4 (unreleased) it'll be breach combat, mini-defense, or repair drone.

Ship specific stats would be something hyperspace would have to add, so you'll probably have to direct that question towards them. Though MV and Hyperspace work in tandem, we are two separate dev teams.
