Re: Do you quit?

Will we really? I mean the votes were a disaster towards the ship unlockabillity however they might still put it in anyway. I did noticed however that the drawing they put there didn't include either the crystal cruiser nor the new lanius cruiser. It also remains to be seen if those will also follo...

Re: What happened in your last run?

I picked Zoltan B for my 5th run after the rock cruiser, my last ship to unlock. On the way I picked up an engi and 2 rocks to deal with the fire. On sector 5 I was almost dying in a solar flame event. Then I was panicked and raised my doors to level 3. Sector 6 was rock homeworlds. I met a merc and...

Re: Ship Specific Bonuses

I don't look at it that way, the ship specific augments are unattainable for other ships (except for engi one) and still they have special stuff. The fed ship has a unique beam weapon and mantis B and crystal B have 4 man teleporters. Making Zoltan shield unremovable isn't really a buff. I wouldn't ...

Re: Maybe I'm Just a Bit Bold

I can never find people to play coop with me in other games but still this sounds like a fun idea.

Re: Do you quit?

It increases my chances from 33% of getting the pod from the dense asteroid field to 100% due to the rock plating. Is that a specialty of the cruiser or a rockmen crew member? Cause I never remember I've failed getting the pod (actually I never knew there was a way to fail). And I've got it 8 times...

Re: I feel like I am wasting my time

Unless you guys are trolling, let me try to explain. FTL is a roguelike game. Which is simply Random encounters + permadeath. But FTL is the king of the genre. There's a lot to learn, but the most important is "how to adapt to and bend probability". If you play this game enough, you'll lea...

Re: Do you quit?

How does playing with the rock cruiser increase your luck at finding the hidden sector?

Re: Do you quit?

I also restart and recently started to even save scum to try and get the damned crystal cruiser which is nearly impossible to get. Even on save scuming I am not getting any dense asteroid field events at all even after flying through 4 sectors of the right type. It's like, there is only 1 to 3 dist...

Re: FTL part 2

Also morale is a good idea. Btw I think what I love about FTL is the feeling that it gives me as I'm the captain of Enterprise and commanding my team to do stuff. To add on to this feeling: 1- Our own character visible on a separate isolated room called bridge. We can level up in stuff perhaps. So t...

Re: Future fisrt person FTL?

Well controlling in 2nd person should probably be with voice commands. Such as "you go there" "you fire beams" etc.
