Re: Post your Highscore

Did you take a lot of ships intact? Taking ships intact means better rewards which means more scrap which, I think, means more points.

Re: Beginner help

If you think you can survive a fight against an Elite Fighter, you can even stick around a little longer. Sometimes when the exit beacon is a bit to the left of the edge, I can sneak a good three, four extra visits to nodes farther right before the fleet catches up, and then one fleet battle at the ...

Re: Post your Highscore

Woohoo, victory with the Slug A! It definitely helped that I found a Burst Laser Mk I in Sector 1! And then some Hull Laser I's later on, which I replaced after I got to the secret sector. Also I got to the secret sector for the first time without savescumming! Woohoo! http://i606.photobucket.com/al...

Re: Post your Highscore

Haha... that's quite an idea...
Although, I'd be worried about the enemies damaging my systems. Especially phase 2, with the two attack drones + drone spam... having powerful weapons won't do much good if they land a few shots in the weapons bay.
But if you wanna try it, let us know how it goes...

Re: Post your Highscore

They can, but I always wanted my only two drone slots for my Defense and Anti-Personnel drones. I was staying at around full hull anyway with my Hull Repair drone, so if I was in a situation where I was in danger of going from full to dead in one battle, I likely would have needed one or the other o...

Re: Post your Highscore

Just used rock boarders + fire bomb to great effect with the Shivan on Normal, to get a new high score! Wooo! http://i606.photobucket.com/albums/tt150/Frogwarrior4/ftlshivanvic_zpsa78ab23d.jpg http://i606.photobucket.com/albums/tt150/Frogwarrior4/ftlshivanstat_zps8991c362.jpg The secret is, drop a f...

Re: Finally unlocked all the ships!

I got all the ships and all the layouts recently. Most of them I haven't really USED much though, so... XD I did use a BIT of savescumming to get a couple... for the slug and secret cruiser, I wanted to unlock them but not have to worry about wasting a run. So I started games on Easy, did a "sc...

The Almost Escape

So, I recently unlocked the Slug Cruiser, and have been enjoying playing around with the Anti-Bio Beam - yet, so far, I have been unable to get out of Sector 1 on Normal. My most recent attempt, I ALMOST succeeded... Well, you know how sometimes beacons that look close aren't actually connected? Yea...

Weapons' breach / fire chance?

Hi, The FTL wiki has a good page with tables on the various weapons, but I'm curious about the way the breach/fire chances are represented. They're too small to be percentages (basic 1-damage lasers are 1 for fire, heavy lasers are 3 for breach and fire). What do they mean, specifically? Does one po...

Re: So how do you beat this game?

Incidentally, if you go the savescumming route, you COULD do a backup at the END of each sector (i.e., when you're standing on the exit beacon). The sector's map - the beacon layout as well as which events are where, placement and inventory of shops, etc - is only determined when you warp to that se...
