Re: I hate the basic Rock ship.

The whole game is luck based; it hardly corresponds to a single ship.

Re: The Awesome Adventures of the TSS Oponn

If you do, all I would say is to post it in the "Stories and Storytelling" section of the forums: viewforum.php?f=8

Re: Worrying trend in reading Kickstarter Backers

Kickstarter is not a preorder site, it is only a site for supporting developers or content creators or whatever it is that you feel like backing. No where do they claim that the game will be 10 dollars, what they are saying is that you are giving them 10 dollars to back a project that you believe i...

Re: How do droids work please? (and also boarding)

As the above poster said, a drone subsystem will allow you to use drones. Likewise, a Crew Teleporter subsystem will allow you to send over boarding parties to enemy ships. Both can be randomly found in stores.

Re: United Federation?

curithwin, the "secret race" isn't needed for the achievement he's talking about.
OP, you're missing Slugs on your normal list.

You should have:
Human
Rockman
Mantis
Zoltan
Engi
Slug

Re: Hull damage.

Either:
1. A random event repairs your hull
2. You pay for it at a store
3. You use a hull repair drone
4. The "Repair Arm" augmentation

Re: Worrying trend in reading Kickstarter Backers

So knowing that you helped make the project possible and getting whatever physical rewards you paid for isn't enough of a thanks? As far as it being a risky project, it certainly succeeded, so it's not like they lost any money. All of the backers were perfectly content during the entire beta, but as...

Worrying trend in reading Kickstarter Backers

EDIT: This caused much more of an argument than I was expecting. This was meant to be more of a discussion about the motivation and use of Kickstarter than about FTL itself. Don't get too mad at each other, people. --- Disclaimer- I'm also a KS backer. Just thought I'd bring something up that I've b...

Re: Can't get myself to like the game after multiple attempt

Also, just a quick note to the OP: subsystems improve as long as -one- crew member is manning the controls: more don't make it go faster. Having four people in the room makes it charge as fast as having one, so send those other 3 off to make other systems better.
