well I've played the game a lot. I can't give you a number of games played, but the scrap collected stat is over 100k... and this is the first time i've seen something like this.

I'd say that qualifies as uncommon :P

Re: (bug report)I didn't think to get a screenshot of it, bu

I believe that's what happened. Lemme hop into a stealth cruiser to try and recreate it. Will edit this post with details. Well, I couldn't replicate it. I went into two encounters with the stealth cruiser, and it properly went off cooldown as soon as I jumped. Perhaps it has something to do with th...

v. 1.03.1, running through steam.

That I forgot to include this must be a dead giveaway that I'm not a game developer :P

A simple fix which I think needs to be in the game...

you ever notice how the targeting icon covers up your crewmember's healthbars when you're trying to watch a close fight?

Why not just have the targeting icon appear under crew when you have vision of the room? or even when you have a crew member in the room?

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

My favorite FYFTL moment, though, is getting a boarding event with 4 Mantis and fighting a Mantis ship that has a teleporter itself... before I've had a chance to upgrade the door systems. You can herd 3 into the med bay, but if you have more than 3 crew? Can't stop the Mantis from entering whateve...

Re: First victory with Zoltan B default weapons

That's an impressive showing for the default weapons and no cloak or drones but yes, 2 ions (or an ion blast 2) and any other weapon is a recipe for (eventual) victory over any foe, including the flagship. But be proud of yourself. Even on easy mode that fight couldn't have been all that easy :) Te...

(bug report)I didn't think to get a screenshot of it, but...

When I had cloaking level 3, I cloaked my ship, finished off the enemy vessel, and then jumped away all while cloaked. The jump caused the cloak to immediately go on cooldown, which I expected, but the remaining duration indicator was stuck on where it was the entire cooldown. Not really a major bug...

Re: Ion Blast tactics?

Any combination of 2 ion weapons (or an ion blast II) is theoretically capable of disabling a ship's shields entirely.

However, more ion means more disable, since you have to account for evasion.

Re: So I've been trying to get a victory...

Congrats! :) Some people would scream in pain and frustration at the challenge of figuring out the game mechanics. Glad you went over that hurdle. =) Now go work on the burst lazers + beam combo =). It's not that I don't know most of the game mechanics already... I just view the engi B to be a very...
