Re: Rock B, Disco Inferno

2 Ion 2's and a Fire Beam is truly heaven. You don't even need to teleport in just light their entire ship on fire and once the shields are down ion anything that they manage to fix.

Re: Boarding vs Destroying

After playing the FireStarter, and a modified version of it I made to be a bit more in line with the power of the normal starting ships, I gotta say burning them out is the way to go. About as hard as boarding (maybe more) and it's sooooo fun watching them burn. And so long as the ship still has air...

Re: Daedalus and Prometheus

I have a friend who chews through Science Fiction TV and movies like candy, who hates SG1. To each their own. But you should at least give it a shot. Actually I give that advice for everything. Spend a few hours watching 4-8 episodes and see if it's your thing. If not, move on. If so, you've just in...

Re: FTL if it were an AAA/console game

You forgot romance! Before the final boss fight, 2 of your crew who have been growing closer all game, would have the chance for a love scene that fades to black before you see anything.

Re: Daedalus and Prometheus

Ok there's a MAJOR issue here... Name what place Daedalus and Prometheus have in VIKING mythology? Prometheus was an immortal who gave mortals fire and Daedalus made the Labyrinth... Really, I hope you didn't actually believe they were Viking... These ships are from a television show, Stargate SG1....

Re: [SHIP] Firestarter - request graphics help please

I'm not a modder, sadly, but I know it's possible. The forum is not letting me search for any of the words I can think of as keywords, either, which is making it harder. I recall that in the ship's .ftl file, someone was discussing how there were 2 settings, one for if the ship starts with something...

Re: [SHIP] Firestarter - request graphics help please

I can't help you on the graphics, but I have to say I had fun with the ship. If you're taking suggestions, I'd suggest you remove the availability to buy the items you can't mount (teleporter, drones. I assume you can't mount them as there are no rooms for it) and drop the cloak to start. It's wholl...

Re: Burst Laser Mk 3 is UP

Please try not to bring a BL2 into a gun performance comparison— it tend to make any gun sucks compared to it... :roll: 2x BL1 vs 1x BL3 ... Now that's will leads to a more thought-provoking discussion & argument. ;) True, though most of the time for me, the best thing about the BL1 is that it'...

Re: Burst Laser Mk 3 is UP

I think there is a side to it most of you fail to see... 5 shots = 5 shield reduced to 0 combine it with fire beam or pike beam and you can destroy any ship in the game with 3\4 shots also use beam drones and ion and you will win easily Sadly it doesn't work that way. With the evasion that late-gam...

Re: An ultimate sacrifice

Aww, that's sad. That should be a win, too.

Anybody ever destroy the Flagship with their entire crew on board? Who wins then?

If not, I'll totally try it.
