Re: Implement Steamworks, achievements and statistics on Ste

If you're good enough to start from Normal, would you ever care to step down and unlock Easy? You'll have to either live with 1/2 of achievements locked or get bored to death by grinding below your capabilities. The FTL way is best of both words. "Easy" players get the achievements, while...

Re: End Game Variety

It's pretty common in traditional roguelikes to have very little variety in end game. For example, in Nethack you basicly had 1½ choices for pimped end game character; powerful hitters and powerful hitters who could cast spells. And before anyone goes there, doing non-pimping challenges resulted in ...

Re: Accepting surrender, yay or nay ?

My three rules of surrendering are: 1) Accept surrender if you get an item 2) Accept surrender if you get something you need (fuel/missiles/drones/fourth crew member) 3) Don't accept surrender AFAIK you always get more scrap from destroyed ship than from surrender, so I don't see a point in keeping ...

Re: Post your best ship setup

Scrap is easy to come by and you don't even need all that much to get good gear for a ship. You need much more luck getting good (or specific) weapons from stores and events though. I don't really see why all of the screenshots on first page couldn't be from normal-unmodded game.

Re: How to get the Burn-Enemy Achievement?

I haaaaaate this achievement, it seems so random. I just had rock ship with two fire beams, ion blast 2 and 4 rocks to use for boarding. Several times I tele'd all the rocks to other ship, lit everything on fire and watched enemy crew members run around and die in doorways and whatnots not giving me...

Re: Post your best ship setup

http://212.50.135.5/~peke/kuvat/feast.jpg Three BL2s from events and one from shop, about 2000 scrap total, mantis+rockman boarding team from sector 2 onwards. I guess it could've been even better with defensive drone, but I could drill through weapon systems with one volley so I didn't worry about...

Re: Burst Laser Mk3

BL3 is also only laser weapon without fire or breach chance. Not that the other ones have big chances either, but fire enough shots and you'll eventually light something up or poke a hole somewhere.

Re: Advanced Players: How are you beating normal?

I find that crew teleporter is, especially with atleast one mantis in crew, one of the best purchases early in the game. If I get teleporter on first sector I usually end up with boss-ready defensive gear (3 shields, 30%-40% dodge, lv1 cloak and possibly drone control) at around sector 5 and can spe...
