Re: FTL board game

You should check out Space Alert by the very talented Vlaada Chvátil and team. That game remind me quite a bit of FTL.

Re: Whats your opinion about DLC?

I would buy it for sure which I think says enough.

Re: Please Help!

I usually don't kill the crew until the last stage. In the first stage mostly board, or concentrate fire on, the weapons in the Missiles > Ion > Beam order. Once those are out I hammer shields with some fire towards helm to remove the dodge until the ship goes down. Depending on my setup I actually ...

Re: suggestion: engine upgrades slow fleet progress

I would think that this is not something that is likely to happen, such a big change of an already released game isn't likely to happen. It would unbalance the game and also be very hard to justify doing anything but upgrading engines to max at the start. More time in sectors equals more loot.

Re: What would you like to see in sequels/expansions?

I would like to see the amount of crew and their skills to matter more for the random events. If I have 4 Mantises and 4 Rocks I would expect the Escape Pod (with a Mantis) or the Giant Space Spider Aliens to almost always be easy. Maybe other game modes where the Rebel Fleet isn't an issue. Longer ...

Re: Random Defeat?

When jumping into an Ion storm it seems that is almost random which rooms/system gets de-powered. Did you make sure to power the oxygen? Not just that it was repaired but also powered by removing power from some other room and adding it to the oxygen room?. Did you hear a hissing sound, like escapin...

Unless they are destroyed of course. They heal if they can get back into the drone control room even if they are de-powered after they arrive.

Re: [Exploit] Quickly Level Crew Shield Skill

Actually this seems to work for engines, bridge and weapons too (just slightly different). If you get to an enemy that can't damage you in the first sector, which is easy if you get level 2 shields, you can just reduce your weapons to a single one that cannot penetrate their shields and wait. After ...

Re: Suggestion: Boarding Party Event Compensation

Wouldn't mind this too, usually too easy and gives almost nothing. Vent everything but the med bay and whatever room next to the medbay you need for your crew. Keep on moving them around in the two-three rooms with air so they heal if needed and kill the invaders. Followed by a minute or two of bori...

Re: Transferring save to Steam

Shouldn't be a problem, files for your save/unlocks is stored in My Documents/My Games/Faster Than Light so you should be able to copy them to a new computer. And I don't think the differend versions should have any problems since they all probably save at the same place. Make a back up of the files...
