Re: Dead Again. Sucks, Right?

That's an "if" large enough to fly a Kestrel through. The cavernous weapons room is 4 squares of pure "shoot me". I did beat the Mothership with Dead Again, but that doesn't make the ship suck any less. I will say this: a level 1 shield is like the heavens parting and angels sing...

First Victory on Hard!

Won in the Basilisk with a top-notch wrecking crew of 1 Rock, 3 Mantis, 2 Human, and 2 Engi. Unlike on Normal difficulty, the melee guys were practically useless in the final battles, so I just used them for damage control and fire suppression. However, having been blown to pieces before on Hard wit...

Re: Dead Again. Sucks, Right?

That's not actually true: there's a several-second window between when your [level 3] cloak falls and the GB fires. Pretty much all the level-1 weapons have time to fire within that window, although you can usually get a beam shot at least started before the enemy weapons hit you. Beam drones are th...

Re: Dead Again. Sucks, Right?

Silly me, there it is, right at the bottom of the list. It must've unlocked when I finished Dead Again - Sucks Right. I was so excited to try out the crystal ship (an easy win after Dead Again) I completely overlooked the Simo-H. It looks like a real dog all right. Shield drones are nice, but they'r...

Re: Dead Again. Sucks, Right?

I haven't unlocked the Simo-H yet. I'll trade you the shield and anti-drones for a defense drone Mk.2 ... pretty please? :P

Re: Dead Again. Sucks, Right?

Does that stand for Stuck in My Own Hell? (I actually have no idea what the Simo-H is ... but if it were this ship that's what the letters would stand for.)

Dead Again. Sucks, Right?

The title of this thread is special: I crafted a clever mnemonic to help me remember the name of the most hated ship in all the universe. I finally beat the boss with the dang thing, too. By pure luck I got lots of mantises and rocks to go boarding with plus a scrap recovery arm. Was this ship desig...

Re: Flagship Best way to deal with hacking drone?

Two DD1's are better than one DD2, incidentally. Release them at 180 degrees' separation.

Re: Hostile or Friendly sectors?

Take the green sectors until you've unlocked the crystal ship, which in practical terms means always take the green. I swear I have the worst luck.

If you have the crystal pod on your ship the last stage happens in a rock sector which is red, but good luck getting that far.
