Re: Advanced Edition: First impressions thread

All of this is on easy so I can unlock and test things. Game 1 was with engie B, and ended decently quick. Game 2 was engie B and I lost on the final boss form, but got to my goal of getting engie C. Game 3 was slug B win, and holy hell it was one of the silliest and most evil ships i've ever done. ...

Re: Balancing the FTL ships

Yeah it's really the combo of the whole thing. No doubt drones could be better and that'd work too, but it needs to be more than just the drones really. Either way i decided to do an engie B run last night on normal to see if it's as bad as I remember. I'm a little of 3/4ths the way, but honestly I ...

Re: Balancing the FTL ships

Engie B just makes me sad, although i'm not sure which method could be used to fix it. 1.The drone systems are VASTLY overcosted for just how bad they are. On the upside you don't need oxygen, on the downside the complete lack of any micro control mixed with a resource cost is bad. Further since the...

Re: FTL: Advanced Edition - Ship Unlock Poll

I like the idea, a lot, however some thoughts- 1. Current system..kinda sucks. I played through the game on a friends computer, and unlocked most the ships, and then would play on mine and feel the EXTREME tedium. It was actually worse once i knew what i was doing because rather than take routes tha...

Re: Tourus Help?

A or B? A- Target their weapons system and man the weapons console with a crew member. Your ion will fire fast enough to lock down both shields and weapons letting your drone take its sweet time tearing them apart. That said if you're getting to sector 4 and getting stuck you probably know that. I'd...

Re: Stealth Ship B (Normal Win)

I've been working on Engi B for awhile now. It's not totally impossible, but I feel the best strat 9/10 starts is to sell all 3 drones, the ion, and the controller at the first shop you come to and get a real gun. Just up doors and vent carefully to deal with invaders, and hope you find crew. It's ...

Re: Enemy ship flees with my mantises on board

Don't you need to clear the cockpit before making FTL jumps?!? This issue has been reported in the following thread, with zasdarq saying he doesn't consider this is a bug, notably because you too can flee with enemies on board: http://www.ftlgame.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2492 By the way, I...

Not yet no. Certain ships are sorta like harder difficulties in that they have more trouble at various points, but there's nothing yet that actually qualifies as a hard mode.

Re: Engi-Ship - Startingtips ?

Use pause and micro the ion. Set it to autofire, but make sure you handle it right and hit what you want. It can be nice to make it so that it hits after the drone laser in some situations(X weapon NEEDS to go down or just getting a direct hit on the shield system) but don't let it keep looping afte...
