Re: Can we expect new content/dlc in future?

More races, more ships, more events, more weapons, the extensibility of FTL is limited only by your imagination. Granted this is addressed by mods, but the devs did such an excellent job balancing the base-game that official add-ons are sure to be of superior quality. Though perhaps console/iOS/Andr...

Re: ideas for FTL 2

I think you've missed the point of what the FTL experience is designed to be.

Did you know...

When a cloaked ship jumps away, it momentarily decloaks allowing you beam back any crew that are aboard. Though the view of the enemy ship switches to the external hull, occluding the rooms. So you have to know where your crew were located in order to initiate the transport. After many hundreds of p...

Re: Favorite Weapon?

Ion bombs.
Best weapon in the game.

If you're lucky enough to pick up:
2xhalberd beam + 2x ion bomb + pre-igniter + 2xautoreloader.
You can kill the boss (every stage) in 2 volleys; ~30 seconds for the first stage(due to cloak), ~15 seconds for 2nd & 3rd stages.

Ridunculous. :lol:

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Internal Auditor wrote:*playing FTL for 30 mins straight*

*Computer auto shuts-down for update*


I've had that happen to me; even posted it in the bugs forum somewhere.

The bug being that FTL should resist the shutdown request when there's unsaved progress.

Re: holy cow... How did this happen?

Maybe it was just a very very long term strategy :lol:

- upgrade 02 system enough to fill the entire vacuum of space with O2.
- space ships no-longer needed.
- win.

Re: Getting effective weapon loadouts via die roll.

Except for a few of the odd starting loadouts, your early scrap is usually best invested in defensive improvements to minimize your repair bill and ensure you reach the later sectors where scrap rewards increase significantly. As for weapons, the crew teleporter is by far the best; it renders conven...

Re: Whats your opinion about DLC?

Hate the entire concept of DLC, have never bought any, and will be disappointed to see FTL go in this direction.

Re: Whats the point of hitting engines?

If the enemy is fleeing, I'll sometimes hit the engines after disabling the helm - so they have 2 things they need to repair before they can continue charging FTL.
