Re: Am I the Only Person that Loves the Fregatidae?

I just unlocked it and am loving it on my first run so far. Of course, I did happen to get another Mantis in the 1st sector, so that made things a LOT easier. Just got to the 5th sector with a full crew, but still no weapons. We'll see how it goes!

Re: Ghosts of the Federation

Just found this thread and wanted to say...Wow, great story! Especially like the way that real FTL tactics are involved in the narrative. Subtle things like keeping engines at 90% and life support off while fully powering weapons, making sure to keep the beam weapon powered just in case there was an...

Re: Pre-igniter vs Auto-loader

Great, thanks! Figured it did, now that just makes it even higher priority for Fed Cruiser runs.

Re: Pre-igniter vs Auto-loader

Foolish question that has probably already been answered numerous times:

Does the Auto-Loader augmentation also speed up the charging of the Artillery Beam on Fed Cruisers?

Re: Best way to earn scrap?

Thanks! Yeah, that was a Normal run, and what really helped was lucking into that Burst Laser III in the first sector which allowed me to completely outgun early opposition. Together with the Dual Lasers, I was able to get 7 shot volleys if timed right, so I could completely disable enemy weapon sys...

Re: Best way to earn scrap?

Thanks! And I know, I know! It's just that EVERY time I've beaten the boss, it's by teleporting, and it feels cheaply overpowered to me. It's almost a science at this point; the last few times I haven't even taken any damage in each of the 3 phases. I just wanna see if I can do it, and it seems like...

Re: Best way to earn scrap?

This doesn't really answer your question, but I'm currently in a Fed Cruiser B run where I'm trying to see if I can beat the game without buying a teleporter. Got my Artillery Beam fully upgraded by the end of sector 3, so there's a chance! I'll let you know how it goes. Also, ALWAYS buy the scrap c...
