Forgot to re-power oxygen and constantly wondering where there are breaches and why I'm dying. Well, at least that run was not that good anyway.

Re: Oxygen and improved blast doors

Oxygen - I upgrade it only when I have all my essentials at my wanted levels or my power generator is maxed. If you get shot in the oxygen you can keep it damaged for a bit without sending your crew to that room.

Doors - Never beyond lvl2.

Re: [Achievement] Can someone make a visual for Slice&Dice?

Get 2 beams - preferably Pike. Encounter a small ship - an unmanned drone or slug interceptor for example. Target your beams so that every single room is hit. Keep in mind that beams must hit in a time period of 5 seconds between each other. Example on beam placement. ftlawgjnagsna.jpg Alternative -...

Re: RNG hates me today...

Haha, that feeling when you get hit while invisible on 90+ evade chance. Sometimes RNG gods just don't want you to finish the game.

Re: How to beat the Flagship and take less than 10 hull dama

I find it funny how people can get massive full stacked crews, whereas I can't even find 2 mantises in the same run.

Re: What might you want to see in the new update?

I had an idea that players could request mercy while in battle, the same way that enemies sometimes ask you to leave them alone, giving you a reward as you smash their hull. The idea would be to add a new button to surrender. After pressing the surrender option the AI makes a choice on what they wan...

Re: Do you think Advanced Edition will have better AI?

I think what we could ask for is race or affiliation specific AI behavior. For example - Mantis would be all about boarding you and killing your ship without any personal regard towards what happens with their ship. All out aggressiveness and full on berserk, you know.
