Re: Create your own FTL story! (Sort of!)

OOC: Mathis and Cahill are the same person, Captain Mathis Cahill. I made him with two names, then I messed up how I was referring to him. 1) Continue with the charade. You figure that you've already got enough of your crew members, and the Slippery crew, invested in this gambit. Bringing in Evo or ...

Re: Create your own FTL story! (Sort of!)

You take a moment to analyze the situation. A lot has happened that makes you question your tactics. -You encountered the USS Slippery When Wet. -Captain Mathis Cahill, a friend, treated you like an enemy -You jump away, accidentally into an asteroid wave. -Cahill follows you, but now treats you lik...

Re: Create your own FTL story! (Sort of!)

# Engi, it would be much more respectful to the other players if you would at least spell check your posts. The situation seems to be out of hand from the moment it started. The USS Slippery When Wet has their weapons hot before your jump momentum ended. You suspect that their weapons were armed bef...

Re: FEATURE REQUEST: "Wait" available on all jumps

I have 1 fuel. If I jump to the next sector, I'll have 0 fuel. If I wait for the rebels to catch me I could get 1 fuel from them, use it to jump, and then (with some help from the RNG) jump to a store or ship in the next sector and get some fuel from that. However, there is no "wait" opti...

Re: Crew left on a ship that jumps away doesnt get cloned

I take a more pessimistic view. Your former crew members are confused by the lack of communication from their captain. They are overwhelmed, captured, and restrained. They'd kill themselves and clone back to you, but they can't. The enemy crew cuffs them, then forcibly disables the device that commu...

Re: Create your own FTL story! (Sort of!)

1. Fire the Hull Splitter beam and take out the remaining Lanius These scumbags have had their chance. Diplomacy was not their strong suit, and now it's time for them to pay. The beam glistens across the gap in space and slices off several of the exterior spines of the Lanius ship. The remaining hul...

Re: Create your own FTL story! (Sort of!)

The ship rocks harshly as a small explosion rips through the aft cabin. You call for a damage report, and receive immediate responses from Evo and Lt. Saunders. The weapons and engines are still on track. Shields seem to be holding. It's hard to tell what the bomb was targeting. As an afterthought, ...

Re: Loss of Cabin Pressure Achievement

OP: 14% is pretty high. You should be running at <10% to give yourself some leeway. The cockpit is, IIRC, 6 or 7%. Ideally you just have your human there, although if you get +2 crew it gets a little more difficult. Teoes: If a boarding drone seals a room, just turn off 02 for the duration of the se...

Re: Abandoned Sector?

Is it a rare sector? Any specific events which happens there? Can you unlock any ships with the events there? Is there any other points to going there? As far as I can tell: No, it occurs with the same frequency as other red sectors. Yes, several Lanius specific events were written for this sector....
