Re: How to use defence drones?

This was a real corner case for me, I'm terrible with drones so I rarely buy them. But mantis c only has lockdown bomb and stun bomb so taking a missile offline takes a while. Couldn't get a better solution than drones at that time :-p Lock down Weapons, teleport crew in, tank missiles. Or get Hack...

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

If we are, then the shieldless twin basic laser auto scout is the 'Retard' I don't see how stupid it is. You usually only start with 1 layer of shield and if it catches you early before you get two layers, then you're screwed aren't you? Sure it has no shields as well and probably in an asteroid fi...

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

Uh, yeah. I was speculating a situation with a nonshielded enemy. If you want, I can work out time listings for every possible setup of ship. :twisted: A non-shielded enemy is not a reasonable fight. I wouldn't even say it's target practice (The Beam Master is considered that). Basically your math ...

Oh... yeah... I forgot that dual lasers and other smaller weapons won't get the message through the Flagship's thick skull.

Re: Question about Artillery

Agreed. When in doubt, look at a mod that did exactly the same thing and see how they did it. Basically, when you can't do something or don't know how, you steal the assets from somewhere else. (not FTL, though, Subset wouldn't like that) Looks like you've been necroing a lot of random threads with...

Re: (MOD) Sleepz's Weapons

is it possible to have an artillery have different effects at different levels? Like, lvl1 - 3 damage, lvl2 - 3 ion damage, lvl3 - 100% breach chance, and so on? Sadly, nope. The benefits of leveling up a system are hardcoded, and for artillery it's reduced cooldown. :( Aww... I wanted to make a sh...

Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

I havn't tried this myself, maybe check if there's an autofire button .png for the two-space slot? If not, trying duplicating the one from 3 spaces and renaming it. (if you have trouble finding them, iirc the images are in the /img folder, not a sub-directory) (this is 100% speculation as I'm at wo...

Re: [SHIP] Make The Federation Great Again!

Well, yeah, but you could just add a second Rock plating under a different name to the mod. You can't create a second augment with the same effects as another one. It doesn't work that way. I don't know... if you add a new augment to your blueprints file with a different name... :P Well, what would...
