Re: Captain's Log - Rolling the Hard Six

Lonchivar,

I think your approach is good, I used the same one when I went for the Crystal ship unlock! Sadly I think all your luck was transferred to me as I got it on my 4th try.

Good luck, and NEVER GIVE UP! NEVER SURRENDER!

Whassat? :lol:


The Skiron missile is a missile that deals 1 ion damage to systems, it is not a very good weapon. Normally only a few enemy ships have it, but I use the Diversity v0.3 mod that makes all the AI only weapons occasionally available at stores.

Re: Weapon stores more often in certain sectors?

Yesterday I got to sector 8 but didn't have enough weapons to beat the final ship. As I made my way to the flag ship I finally found a store and bought a Skiron missile (which I would never do normally). Luckily it tipped the balance back in my favour and I won! Never give up, sometimes what you nee...

Re: Six Mantis Boarding Party Ideas

Yeah, 6 Mantis? Even with lvl 2 doors that would be a very tough fight. Reminds me of the time I got boarded by 5 rockmen at a sun location, and the first thing they did was knock out my bridge... too bad there is no achievement for having your own ship entirely on fire.

Re: Post your Highscore

Just got a high score of 5757 with the Basilisk on my first play through with the ship! A 4-man teleport pad is just ridiculous! Also I had a lot of luck early on, finding 2 rockmen in the first sector and a Burst Laser Mk II as well.

Re: Various Valorous Virtual Ventures - FTL Videos

Absolutely. I do use the oxygen power for other purposes from time to time, but given that it can be catastrophic if you forget to put the power back and that I have a fairly short memory for some things I try to avoid it as much as possible. *nods* Yep, I have suffocated my crew once (or twice? ba...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

So, yesterday I am playing the Man of War and I finally got my double mantis boarding party to max skill. I get attacked by another Slug ship that disables my O2 and start fire bombing my ship. No problem, right? I destroy their medbay with my weapons then beam my boarding party into their weapons r...
