Re: Favourite Enemy Ship Layout?

There's a Rock fighter I like a lot, if I have a Pike Beam equipped. 7 rooms in one swipe... mmmm :D

Re: Defense Against Missiles [A How-To Guide]

The Scientist - I did some more experimentation today and unfortunately it turns out that enemy ships do *not* always lose weapons in a consistent order, when their weapon room is damaged (drat). --Noel I think they do, but since the AI is working at several billion operations a second it can switc...

Re: Post your Highscore

Just out of curiosity, how do you guys take screenshots? I used Fraps but i dont feel like running it every time. Is there an in game shortcut i missed? I use PrintSrceen and paste into MS Paint.

Re: Post your Highscore

In a Kestrel A I got 4998 >.< so close. It was the best run I'd ever had. Found a Scrap Recovery arm and a Burst Laser II in the second jump, 2nd Sector. Got the "6 species of crew", "No Redshirts", "Technophobia", and "kill the boss on Normal" A good day 8-)

Re: Stasis Pod Distribution

I lucked onto a Stasis Pod, stumbled into the Zoltan researchers and got the Crystal guy and have by pure chance taken the right path and found the Rock Homeworld sector... and theres nothing here. Shouldnt there be a quest marker or something? Because I've already used up about 8 years worth of luc...

Re: Core Tactics: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced

If I'm using a Firebomb or Breach weapon, the O2 system is the main target. The enemy will de-crew two other positions (unsurprisingly) to repair it, and they need more time to repair than it takes for you to reload and fire again. I've found out, in the not-so-fun way, just how difficult it is to r...

Re: A challenge: How low can you go?

For others that haven't learned it yet: In that screenshot you can see the fire icon over the drone rooms power. it has also almost turned a bar completely red (kind of how repairing a crossed out bar makes it turn yellow). Boarders do the same thing but they stop attacking systems if you bring a c...

A challenge: How low can you go?

Just how badly mauled can you get and still win a battle? This is my entry. Only 1 crew left, and he'd just repaired the O2 when it was at 9%, then rushed back to repair the medbay as the guns fired to destroy the enemy with just 1 hull remaining. It was an epic battle, but of course, I couldnt find...
