Re: How to lose the game without getting a game over screen.

Those ideas are pretty much how my thought process went. "Okay, so if I upgrade the bay, They'll have time to, no, damn. pulsar. So if I run them to the pilot so I can get to a safe lo-... engines down, same repair situation as oxygen. Welp. As the irish say, Oil Beef Hooked."

How to lose the game without getting a game over screen.

This ship is forever doomed to float in space, constantly spawning clones who try desperately to repair the oxygen to no avail before perishing like their infinite predecessors. Or until the nearby pulsar disables the cloning bay.

Re: To AE or not to AE, that is the question...

Once AE is Installed, there is an option in the "new game" screen that allows you to toggle AE content. so I'd say go for it!

Re: Is "Instant Death" a Common Part of the Game?

Sometimes the RNG just decides you have lived long enough and need to die. Quickly. And possibly humiliatingly. If that's even a word. We have all had moments like that. ;) Spare a thought for this poor soul who got trounced when he really should have lived. Pity his engines were crap but he must h...

Re: I feel like I am wasting my time

medical 2, doors 2, and oxygen 2 are often upgrades that you can skip out on. That's a lot of scrap added together and it sometimes means the difference between life and death via other relevant combat tactics. many "no-win" situations are actually beatable. For example, you said that you ...

Re: FTL hardmode pls

- The only way to earn 10% (15 actually) less scrap is to play a ship that starts with a Repair Drone, but that also has the advantage of selfhealing. I believe you're talking about the repair arm, which heals 1 point of hull damage every time you earn scrap at a cost of 15% off each scrap earning....

Re: Attempting to get the Crystal

I got the crystal ship! But it took me a lot of effort to specifically search for it. What I did was grab the rockman ship (for the plating that guarantees you get the pod if you find the event), and then spam sector 1 run throughs. Every time I finish sector 1, I check the sector layout. Ideally, t...

Are rock sector shops supposed to have crystal weapons?

Title.

I was in a rock controlled sector, and when I went to a shop it showed me that I had the option of purchasing a crystal lockdown bomb. This is the first time I've ever seen a crystal weapon outside of the secret sector, and it's throwing me off. Is this a bug? Oversight? Intended?

What are these... cards?

I opened steam just now and I got a message that 4 new items were in my inventory. I am apparently the proud owner of 2 federation cruisers, one "foil" federation cruiser, and a mantis cruiser.

What are these? I haven't heard anything about this until now.
