Mod to make Zoltan crew less annoying?

One thing that's always bothered me about FTL is how the Zoltan crew member power works. I hate needing to micromanage their energy bonus as they walk around, and I find it especially dumb that in a weapons room the bonus power can only go toward the first weapon. Is there any mod that will modify t...

The small bomb will do 1 hull damage each time it destroys a system. So you can do what rannl said, except by using the small bomb for the last point of hull damage you can avoid sacrificing a guy

Re: This game would be AWESOME with PvP

The problem with removing pause is that some weapon combos work fine without it, while others become far more difficult

Re: How often are games lost to terrible luck?

I had a game on Easy once where I was convinced that I had accidentally chosen Normal. I was playing Stealth B, and my first encounter was a ship with a beam drone and beam weapon.

Re: Is EASY level beatable 100%?

Maybe 95%. If you are playing optimally you have to get really really really screwed over to not be able to win on easy. For example, playing the Rock ship and never finding any non-missile weapons.

Re: How to get the Burn-Enemy Achievement?

1. Set a room on fire. 2. Teleport rockment to room on fire. 3. Enemies will fight until nearly dead, then run away. 4. Move one of your rockmen out of the burning room, to the side opposite of where the enemy crew ran to. This is your decoy. 5. Enemy crew will run back through the burning room to g...
