Re: [MOD] Increased Difficulty

I'm not saying I don't think the game is a bit too easy for a veteran. I beat the boss about 80-90% of my play-throughs. But the idea of taking one of the base ships through a first sector full of ships that you describe seems more like suicide than a challenge. EDIT: Oh I may have misread. You're s...

Re: Find new posts in thread

I am not seeing a way to view the newest unread post, which the original poster here requested. I don't see exactly what you mean. Could you clarify? What I currently do is click on "view new posts", then for each post I'm interested in I click on the latest page, hoping that it contains t...

Re: Airless ship strategy

Okay, I tested this. I took the Engi-A to the nearest shop and sold the weapon and drone. That, plus the 10 credits I started with, got me 95 credits, which conveniently is exactly what it costs to upgrade your medbay from 1 to 3. I then put 1 crewman in the airlock room and opened the door (instant...

Re: Airless ship strategy

Saving 1 power on Oxygen is going to be useless when you need 2+ to power the medbay at all times.

Can you have multiple medibots?

Re: [MOD][WIP] FTL Infinite Space

I've been really enjoying this mod. I used the Mantis B ship, got myself an extra Mantis to start, and then went to a shop 1 jump from the start and purchased a 4th mantis and an Engi with my 150 scrap. Holy cow 4 mantises from the get-go is awesome. I've got weapons and drones now, and so far nobod...

Re: Noob needs some help!

There are tons of little tips to give and little tricks to learn, but it's hard to say exactly what would benefit you most without actually seeing what problems you have. You may benefit from watching a few videos of people fighting the flagship as there are several people in the forums who make qu...

Re: Noob needs some help!

It may not seem that way right now, but there are multiple strategies that work for every phase, and you will likely have to adapt your play to account for what you have when you meet the final boss. Cloaking in the drone phase is a great way to avoid a lot of damage. 4 shields and high (45-50%) dod...

Re: Noob needs some help!

Teleport 2 guys into the missile bay. Leave them in there until they take it down. Cloak if you can, use defense drones if you can, or just take the missiles that come on the chin if you must. Once you take those missiles down, the first stage is pretty easy. Teleport guys into the other weapons (ma...

Re: Xbox version

I was actually surprised to find out there wasn't an... anything, really... version of FTL. This game would be perfect on pretty much any device.
