Re: Scrap Management

I thought i'd share my method of scrap management since its a bit different than what most have said. first off, I dont upgrade anything on my ship until I have at least 100 scrap left over after upgrading the ship, unless its a very crucial upgrade that I really need at that exact moment. the reaso...

Re: Crew members are there correct locations?

honestly, to me the only factor that really matters as to who is manning what is their skill level. there is only a very small list of people I'd prefer to doing which job. such as zoltans should always be on a main system to get full benefit of their energy power. engines and shields are great loca...

Re: Your guns shooting down a enemy drone

fyi this also happens with missiles too, i've shot down a missile that passed right infront of my weapon before. and I can only guess it would work against boarding drones too but i've not had that situation happen yet

Re: Difference between evasion and dodging

just a bit of correction, engine room does not have to be manned in order to obtain the evasion. also evasion and dodge are the exact same thing, they just werent consistent in using 1 word. upgrading engines will increase base dodge chance and FTL charge, manning it will give a boost to evasion dep...

Re: Best drone combination

it all depends on your load out. there is no best combinations of just drones, you gotta have other weapons to support it. no matter what, you need some kind of weapon that you can physically aim to take out key components to let your drones do their work each drone has it's strengths and weaknesses...

Re: Engi-Ship - Startingtips ?

if you read some of my other posts on ion weapons, you'll find that in order to keep something locked down, you gotta constantly attack it. the more you attack it, the more energy/upgrades you lock down but as soon as you stop attacking it and the timer runs out (with this weapon its a 5 second dura...

first, turn on auto attack, you need that ion burst 2 to be shooting constantly second as soon as the shields go down, switch to shoot their weapons, your attack speed (as long as you have a guy in the weapon bay) is fast enough that you can lock down 2 systems at the beginning of the game. third, u...
