Re: Run-Ending Misclicks

Don't worry too much about it. The time will come when you accidentally shoot a teammate, reset, and then accidentally shoot someone else on the next turn and your reset is all used up. The good news is, the more often you do it the less likely you will do it in the future. I've not torpedoed a run ...

Re: Run-Ending Misclicks

Sorry it's termed "reset" in the game. It's a button on the screen at the top. Here's an image I just pulled off of Google, it's just to the right of the 31% grid defense.

Re: Brand new to the game

No you do not lose everything.

You lose the ship you are currently flying and it's weapons and the crew, but you can play the same ship design over and over, or pick any of the ships you've unlocked upon any replay.

Re: Run-Ending Misclicks

During beta, I asked for an option to allow left-click to select, right-click to shoot (or vice-versa). Sadly they opted to not do this. They did add the orange lines to the board to give you an indication that you had selected a weapon, but still - thankfully on much rarer occasions - I still do th...

Re: Am I doing something wrong?

When you enter sector 3, you should at least have Engines 5 and Shields 4 (2 bubbles) and your goal should be to leave the sector with Shields 3. This means that the VAST bulk of your scrap should go into those, only spending scrap on Weapons you can instantly get benefit from or some AMAZING augmen...

Re: Difficulty reassurance!!

Easy mode is roughly equivalent to most games' hard mode. Normal mode is roughly equivalent to most games' insanity mode. They added hard mode in AE because they couldn't believe we'd want it even harder and just made it stupid hard. That's the mode I prefer :) But there is no shame in playing in ea...

Re: Hull image not showing up on superluminal

I wish I could help more but I've not modded FTL in years. I had this issue before and IIRC it's something specific about your image file. Like, it doesn't have an alpha channel or something like that. I don't recall exactly what was wrong or what fixed it, but I do recall for a fact it was my image...

Re: Are Hazardous Mechs viable?

Of course they're viable. In fact they're one of my favorite squads. Here's me doing well with them on Hard (presumably, I didn't watch it but it's 5 episodes long which implies I probably at least made it to island 4, if not also won the game) . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6N9P6te4iLA&list=...

Re: Game difficulty scale problem at late game?

In hard mode, the only enemies that spawn on the 4th island are Alphas. There aren't actually any more than there were before. The biggest tip I can give you is to try to make it so that at the start of the next turn, there will be 3 Vek on the board. Not 4, not 2. 3. That way, only 2 will spawn eac...

Re: mod ships make the game easier

That's like asking if cooking food makes it taste better. Really depends on the food. Steak? You bet. Salad? Not so much. I personally would say stick with the basic ships until you're comfortable with them, or even bored. Then start modding. The big problem isn't the mods themselves, but your exper...
