The Completion Story Thread

Well, after 172 hours of fun and torture (the Crystal Cruiser quest, mainly), I have finally beaten the game. I have won with every ship and layout on normal and gotten all the achievements. This is not meant as a bragging thread; rather I wanted to tell some interesting facts about my time with FTL...

Re: How to quit FTL

I also tore my hair out trying to get the Crystal Cruiser before finally getting it after about, I swear, 200 runs or more. Maybe it was actually less in reality but it sure felt like that much. However, that situation takes the cake for cruelty. If it is any consolation, when Advanced Edition comes...

Any chance for Type C ships or new themes for existing ones?

I have to say I am super excited about FTL: Advanced Edition. I would actually pay you for it if you wanted me to, but you don't, which is even more awesome! In addition to all the other new features, is there a chance we are getting Type C layouts? I'm sure you would have mentioned it in the traile...

Re: [IDEA] FTL Board Game?

Though it is obviously not FTL-themed, Galaxy Trucker is a board game about extremely dangerous trips through space. You get to build the ship too which is my favourite part. Here's a review by my favourite board game review geeks, the Shut Up and Sit down Team. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ryg4UH...

Re: The Vortex[tips]

I was going to post my tips for the Vortex here, but I think the_truthseeker covered everything possible. :) Vortex is a tough ship to win with. One plus is that you get lots of blue options: Engi Crew, System Repair, Ion Weapon, and Anti-Personnel Drone all provide blue text at events. You need to ...

Re: Rock Cruiser B help?

Actually, since the enemy always flees the room if they are at low health and in fire, I only found one way to get the achievement. Get to the boss. Firebomb the Missile room (or any other weapons room, though the Missile Room is the most important to shut down). Teleport Rockmen. Achievement unlock...

Re: My Engi Type A Strategy

I certainly appreciate you sharing your knowledge with us. :) In regards to Normal, here are some additional tips to keep in mind: Shields: Three layers is indeed enough, even for the boss. However, you will need specific subsystems to go with it. Four shields will be necessary if you are missing so...

Re: Ship Tier List [SPOILERS]

A lot of this I agree with. However, I recommend a reduction to just five tiers. As well: Tier 0: Carnelian, Basilisk. No issues here. Basilisk is extremely strong despite the threat of Zoltan ships, and if Carnelian is close then it deserves to be here as well. Haven't unlocked it yet, though. Tier...

Nebula_Mantis_Fight

Just had a fight with a Mantis ship in an Uncharted Nebula sector. Instead of text, the event box said Nebula_Mantis_Fight. I didn't take a screenshot unfortunately. It was a Sector Two, right after an Engi-Controlled sector, and I got the stasis pod. I am flying Rock A. If there is anything else I ...
