In so much pain right now...

Never beaten normal before, everything was looking great until I realized something... None of my weapons can damage the hull... Tried to jump away to a store in the sector and time ran out before I got there. http://i.imgur.com/dXSv2.jpg?1 Edit: Right click and open image in new tab to see the whol...

Re: Burst Laser Mk 3 is UP

A percentage of a higher number is higher than the same percentage of a lower number. Thus, higher reload time weapons gain more of a benefit from a percentage reduction in their load times. Not really, the percentage is really what matters. Let's say you add +2 damage to a fast weapon and a slow o...

Re: Quest markers disappearing

Happened to me once as well. Final quest marker for the slug ship i think? Just cheated to unlock it after it disappeared. In my case I went to a store, went to an asteroid field to get knocked down to 1hp and returned to the store for that achievement. So I got a new achievement, revisited a known ...

Re: Enemy ship flees with my mantises on board

Not at all, there's no reason they have to be in the cockpit. I was suggesting that anytime an enemy FTL's with some of your crew on board, there be a screen where you can try to finish off the crew without support from your ship. And as far as I've noticed that's how it already works for the player...

Re: Enemy ship flees with my mantises on board

Actually it looks like what he's commenting on is whether the enemy ship can jump while fighting in the cockpit, not whether there should be a way to save your crew if they jump.

Re: Defense Drone II?

Yup. I never use it. I'd rather have a mark I than a mark II, and with the power cost you can have two of em if you find em.

Re: Enemy ship flees with my mantises on board

Less "lazy programming" and more "not how the game designers wanted it to work". I don't know if that's true. Are there any dev comments on it? Obviously I don't know their thought process, but the way it works doesn't make much sense. So I would think that if it were 0 effort t...

Re: Enemy ship flees with my mantises on board

My only issue is that the two Mantis can't kick the crap out of the human after the jump, and then just charge the FTL and jump back. I understand the game isn't designed to account for this (I don't think even a mod could do it), but it just seems so silly to lose fights that have basically alread...
