Re: Post your Highscore

Not bad for a non-boarding ship/playstyle (it's boring...) + no Scrap Recovery Arm ... The bonus granted by a Scrap Recovery Arm does not figure into the end-of-game stats for scrap collected or for score. It uses only the base scrap before adding the 10%. I tested this. (Just restart until you fin...

Re: Post your Highscore

I don't see the difference between farming game openings and farming ships. That's true of any new system, augment, or upgrade, but that's more true of Scanners. You said specifically that your intention was to "make sure almost every jump goes to fight an enemy ship". How is that not the...

10 points per beacon. You get credit for the starting beacon. (Not the 10 starting scrap.)

Re: Post your Highscore

Pushed it to 7018, without intentional farming. http://www.dos486.com/misc/ftl-7018b.jpg 3065 scrap collected, which should be a record, and that's always legit as scrap can't be farmed. (By the way, I tested, and the scrap listed for scoring does not include any bonus from Scrap Recovery Arms. It a...

Re: Post your Highscore

While not strictly "cheating", this certainly falls under the category of exploiting in my mind. The rebel fleet is supposed to be a deterrent to lingering in the sector, not an incentive to do so. Although this did occur to me as something potentially usable as a means to artificially in...

Re: How do you get 4 guys to fight you in one room?

Well, it doesn't have to be the medbay. Take any 4 square room, vent everything else, and the AI boarders will all go there together.

Re: How do you get 4 guys to fight you in one room?

I got it on the boss, which has a 4 square medbay. I sent two pairs of boarders all into the med bay, and the AI simply sent 4 crew to fight them. On other ships, the AI probably will not commit 4 out of 5 crew to one room, but on the boss it can send 4 out of 8 or so.
