Re: Post your Highscore

How funny,Boof survived 289 jumps. Its a difference between most beacons explored and jumps :roll: You must make a jump to go from beacon to beacon, but you only explore a beacon once. You could however revisit a beacon, and that costs you a jump, but the visit is not counted as an exploration (you...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

I was trying to unlock the kestral cruiser layout 2, trying to get tough little ship. then, as i was at 1 health, iwas doomed by an asteroid. :evil: Did you drive into an asteroid field with only a single hull point left or did you try to get your hull down to one point by farming damage while in t...

Re: Post your Highscore

How can you defeat 234 ships when you have only visited 116 beacons? He cheated, with mods. No biggy. The crime here is that he posted his cheater score as if it's a real one. There are people out there that will do anything for attention, and you've located one. Good call! I wasted all the rebel e...

Re: Post your Highscore

I wasted all the rebel elites in each sector. How can you defeat 234 ships when you have only visited 116 beacons? There's usually less ships than for beacons because of events or the occasional empty dot. From what you say (and some quick math) I get that you did a backtrack in each sector and vis...

Re: Action Queue

Action queues... Using shift-click, you would be able to set the action after the current. It would be mainly used to "go repair this" , then "come back to that room" behavior. It could even be applied to weapon (Ion-beam at every 4 seconds) to queue attacks shield-weapon-shield...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

With the crystal ship I got REALLY lucky.(...)at the final Flagship stage, got blown up just before my Artillery Beam fired. Guess we can't get lucky every time. TYFTL is the exception; FYFTL is the golden rule. I've yet to unlock the Crystal cruiser, after 30 or so trials. The most difficult part ...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Felt so robbed. I moused-over all the system jumps, but somehow I still got epically screwed by the really unorthodox way a few were linked together, the 3-4 encounters I had in that system not yielding any fuel was just icing on the cake :\ Two comments: 1. Big guns are not a guarantee for fuel si...

Custom Starting Ship Configuration

I looked through the mod list, but I didn't find a mod that makes it possible to customize your own ship from the start. By customization I mean to install your very own systems, upgrades, weapons, drones and augmentations. You receive an amount of scrap that's equal to the average value of the inst...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

That is actually a known bug. 5thHorseman is right, the asteroids did not work correctly. This is what Matthew had to say about it: http://www.ftlgame.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=11057&start=10#p39562 To attack mantis by default does sound like a bug, but not one that needs a patch: a goo...
