Re: Names for various ships

...Holdon, I sortof lied. I named some ships by a system. Engi B (the one that has one engi, correct me if i'm wrong) - Usually something making reference to the Master Sword from Zelda: Skyward Sword. Especially with Fi in it. (uss master, uss imprisonment, something along the lines of that.) Manti...

Re: Names for various ships

Oh well then. *proceeds to scream "Crystals" off the top of the roof(not really.)*

p.s. C(K?)rystals are better than people.

Re: Names for various ships

I don't have a ship naming system, but I DO have a crew naming system that might help you out with ship naming... Humans - named after my irl friends Engi - named after Fi, from Skyward Sword Mantis - named after some other Zelda character, depending on colour (the leafish-green one is Link, the blu...

Re: Dumb ways to die!

So I was playing Engi B on the iPad Edition. Sector 5, the run is looking promising with a Burst Laser 2 to chew through shields, and pretty good engines and shields. Yet still no additional crew. So I'm cruising along, when I find a slaver. I have to draw straws to send a crew member over. I laugh...

The Truly United Federation

As you may know, there are 8 races currently in-game. I took it upon myself to attempt to recruit/hire/obtain one of each. It's no less challenging than I thought. For me, I was always missing the Lanius sectors. Just normal RNG situations, but it was really annoying. Eventually though, I managed it...

Re: FTL: Faster Then Light | Weapons Spreadsheet

It would be helpful to have a crew damage slot, cuz even weapons other than Anti-Bio beam deal damage. Or I didn't spot that. In which case, sorry. Btw, really helpful, thank you for creating this. I'd be willing to research about crew damage though.

Glaive + Vulcan = USS Truth

So I was running Rockman B, I picked up a Glaive at the beginning (had fun pwning those n00b ships), and I was hoping for a Vulcan to go along with it. Lo-and-behold, I got it in sector 7. I happied. I happied so loud I forgot how to English. I lost against the Rebel flagship at the end, but heck, i...

Never-ending Lockdown?

Diamonds are forever, but Crystal Lockdowns shouldn't be. And that isn't all that helpful when you need to "convince" new space pirates of their bad decisions. (I'd include an image but I just couldn't cut it down to size(256KB).) So, I was running Crystal B, and I had the task of destroyi...

Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

Ok, I didn't read all of them, some may be repeats, some may be basic but this is also for the noobs in need, so here we go. Did you know? Other than missiles, defense drones knock out ion intruders or boarding drones. Saves you the trouble of having to fight them by person! If you're really lucky, ...

Re: Dumb ways to die!

Ok, this has happened at least more than once... Crystal B. Naturally I'd use a boarding team. But the default augment is Crystal Vengeance. I sent my crystal guys over. They sent a shot to my hull, and that 10% of misfortune struck. The piece of crystal was sailing right for my boarding team! Of al...
