Re: [MOD] Event Assistant

Don't you think this mod is kind of redundant? Most people who still browse this forum and play this game are seasoned veterans by now. As well as this taking a lot of the fun out of early game experiences for new players.

Re: [MOD] Descent into Darkness - a major game overhaul

That ultra cannon is amazing, especially when used with the super-heated plasma weapon. A real crew killer.

I also thought the 3 shield limit was interesting, especially against the flagship.

Re: Question about ion weapon + a trick I found.

Why no love for the Heavy Ion? Sure it's slower and kinda prone to missing, but it deals double Ion damage at a reasonable pace. I disliked it initially but was forced to make use of it by the "roll with the punches" nature of FTL. Since then i have allways been happy to have one on my sh...

Re: Question about ion weapon + a trick I found.

You are positive? :O im so confused right now lol. Anyway thanks for the advice guys. I tried FTL for the heck of it and thought "What the hell is this shit?" suddenly 3 days has passed and my friends will soon have to cut down the branches that has grown on my door with a machette to get...

Re: Engine Failure Challenge...

Seems like ships that start with one engine bar (Mantis B, Engi B) are perfect for the job. Especially since both start with a drone bay, and one already has a defense drone and level 2 shields. Combine that with the overpoweredness of boarding and you have a solid plan. Although if you encounter an...

Re: How many hours have you played FTL?

I've played at least 30 hours on easy; then reset the scores and started on normal. As for normal, that would be around 47 hours of play. I sometimes do leave the game open for 10 minutes or so while doing other things, but that accounts for maybe 2 hours. Sometimes I think I'm burning myself out on...

Re: Upgrade Priorities

Gentlemen. Let me rephrase. I agree that upgrading shields and engines and offensive power is better overall for survival and progress, but in the first sector, at least, there is not much that puts you in too much danger, so you can afford to get some nice things, even if you do not buy the energy...

Re: Increase the difficulty?

Maybe just a hard mode where you get less scrap than normal. Forces you to do more with less. But I like the idea someone had about introducing more play modes, maybe some kind of endless scenario where enemies get extremely challenging like death match. Or a mode that focuses more on the economics...

Re: Ship of many captains

I always come across the spiders when using the Mantis cruiser type B. I find the boarding drone option hilarious.

Re: Upgrade Priorities

What is pointless about having a more damage resistant oxygen system? Also, have you noticed how much faster just one upgrade is at refilling your ship? Finally, Slugs will be less likely to completely shut off the system if it's upgraded. The damage resilience is why I don't upgrade it until the b...
