Re: A few suggestions...

I would love to see equipment for crew members. For example: Vacuum suit: immune to oxygen loss Fire suit: prevents health loss from fires Extinguisher: speeds up fire suppression Repair kit: speeds up repair Medical Kit: heal other crew members in the same room. Personal Teleporter: teleports crew...

Re: Getting Secret Ship not Fun

Example. During the game, you can click on your crew, and in addition to the "Humans are common and boring", you'll see: Jon, Human Male, 36 years old. Jon has always dreamed about getting on a space ship. He used to love playing baseball with his dad. Brian has a long distance relationsh...

Re: Help running the Kestrel in normal mode?

Again, this is as long as I don't face a guy with 2 hull lasers, an anti-ship beam droid, a bomb launcher, and 1 bubble of shield in the first zone, before I've earned more than 30 scrap and even heard of a store. The damn things only have 8 hull but they easily take 7-10 of mine before I'm able to...

Re: Boss Stalemate!

I am not a big fan of consumable weapons, (drone parts, missiles) because relying on them leaves me helpless when I run out. That is why I depend heavily on energy weapons. I wish there was a sub-system that allowed us to use scrap to manufacture missiles at a low rate in order to maintain a viable ...

Re: Will Steam Beta Key Expire at Launch?

The Steam Beta Key will not expire at launch. You will be welcome to install the GOG version, the Steam version on Windows and Mac, and all three standalone versions that will be available on our website. That's a lot of FTL and is probably not necessary though :) Every version will use the same sa...

Re: Will Steam Beta Key Expire at Launch?

We'll get both the GOG version and the steam version :) The steam final version will retain save games, so don't worry about losing all your unlocks. I'm not sure how the Linux or Mac version works but would guess that you order it from gog you are able to download any of the three versions you lik...

Will Steam Beta Key Expire at Launch?

As a lower figure kickstarter, I am unfamiliar with how this works. I downloaded the steam version of FTL when it was opened to $10 kickstarters, and I've been told I will get a DRM free version of the game from GOG.com. After the Beta is over will I still have access to my steam version, (stats, un...

Re: Hints to beat the boss

Disclaimer: I've only beaten the boss once on Easy Mode. I didn't use any missiles, just a 3 shot hull laser and a 2 shot heavy laser coupled with an anti ship drone. I'd wait until all the weapons were charged, AND for the drone to reduce one bubble of shields, then I'd fire my hull cannon and my h...
