Re: Your "I'm too stupid to play this game" moments.

I just had one whilst READING THIS THREAD. Jumped into Sector 2, first encounter was with an absurdly powerful Auto-Drone (Normal difficulty). Beam drone, missile launcher, Ion Charge thingy. First rocket hit my shields, things went downhill from there. I was about to just call it a day and shut off...

Re: [Modding Question] sector_data.xml.

I would just append this: <sectorDescription name="NEBULA_SECTOR" minSector="0" unique="false"> <event name="YOUR_EVENT" min="1" max="1"/> </sectorDescrption> This should work as it is added to this: <sectorDescription name="NEBULA_SE...

Re: [SUBMIT EVENTS] Community-provided event mod

As well rebalancing and tweaking, as well as revising the player ships (giving them more diverse roles and putting in a few of the new weapons). Next up is adding more ways to aquire weapons (most l...

Re: [MOD] Turning The Tide v0.9

Well, giving a ship mediocre weapons, but solid shields and 50 hp can count as an 'evil destroyer', too. Though it benefits those players with boarding crews :P

Re: Question About Manning Stations

Engines. Manning engines can give 5, 7 or 10%. Effectively, a leveld engine-officier gives +5% dodge. That's the value of 2 engine levels (later on). 20% faster shield doesn't really compare to that, imho. Manning priority for me is Helm (duh), Engines, Weapons, Shield, Cloak (aka, the repair-duty g...

Re: Mantis Type B

By sector 6. If you're playing the ship right, it shouldn't pose a problem. One of my Mantis boarder managed to rack up 30 kills by himself in a whole game, which means he probably had ~22 by sector 6... ntm my other 3 boarders :P Just board pretty much every ship (but Auto-Scouts), eventually get a...

Re: [Modding] R&D and current findings

Btw, are you trying to modify the data.dat directly? If so = doesn't work.

If you're using GMM, ensure your files are coded in ANSI-format.

Re: Federation Cruiser B Unlock

Only normal weapons. The point of the achievement is to rely ony our artillery beam, after all.
