Re: [Suggestion] Real-life piracy

Both are acts of theft, but in one case what is stolen is not missing. There is a difference. The difference is not moral in nature. Both cases are still wrong. The argument does not work as intended. There's no distinction in the definition between theft of physical property or intellectual proper...

Re: [Suggestion] Real-life piracy

I am not allowed to steal a car and try it for a few days before I buy it, so why should anyone be allowed to steal FTL or any other game? That argument is a fallacy. When stealing through copying digital information you are not denying anyone access to the original. When stealing a car you deny th...

Re: [Suggestion] Real-life piracy

This discussion is pointless, for the same reasons that are similar discussions on other controversial topics (i.e. politics, religion, and civil liberties). Not one of you has the capability to convince someone that your view of such topics is correct, because everyone has an internal commitment t...

Re: [Suggestion] Real-life piracy

I do not agree at all with this. How many people, who pirate games, go out and buy them AFTER they have played the full version? A long time ago I used to use Pirated games, but since I came to Christ I destroyed ALL my pirated software and purchased it all, just to say a big sorry. This is the onl...

Re: [Suggestion] Real-life piracy

Not trying to start a debate here, but a fair few people do actually pirate as a way to demo a game, and later buy it if it's worth it, which this game definitely is. I'm going to bite anyway and say; breaking the law is breaking the law. Once you've downloaded a file, irregardless of purpose, that...

Re: Info on the next build!

Hey Justin, Awesome news. Thanks for the update! For those of us that didn't make it into the Beta for whatever reasons, any chance of a cheeky update on whether you guys have a firm release date? Definitely August? Definitely September? :D YouTube must be getting sick of me entering the search term...

Re: [Suggestion] Finish non combat wait states during Jump t

We are talking about trying to eliminate 'dead time', time where you are sitting there waiting for a timer to decrease, with no real decisions/actions for you to do.. Or at most the only action is to move person A from room 1, (repair), to room 2, (repair), and then room 3 (repair). I've got 70hrs ...

Re: [Suggestion] Finish non combat wait states during Jump t

There could be a start of game button in the hanger next to Easy and Normal called "automatic repairs." I know it's another UI element and that's bad in it's own right, but there is no reason both groups can't play the way they enjoy. This is a good idea. Not something I'd use but certain...

Re: [Suggestion] Finish non combat wait states during Jump t

Yeah.. Take the movie avengers (just saw it), and add commercials. It doesn't get better. Trust me. No, a film with adverts isn't more enjoyable. But you know what is more enjoyable than a film with constant action? A film that isn't constant action. We're not saying this game would be better if, a...
