Re: 5thHorseman's Playthroughs of Each Ship

They boarded you in the Medbay, and you vented it?!?! When you had two Mantises?!?!?!? I would have sent them in with the spare Zoltan, venting the rooms outside the Medbay to where the other boarders were. Engineer stays put for evasion. You could have moved shields Zoltan over to weapons, if you f...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Well, sixth beacon was mentioned, so I assumed the enemy only had one shield bubble. In this case, typically I shoot one ion at shields and the other at weapons. I even position the Pike Beam between the Ion Blasts, so the second ion has a bit of a delay due to the aft positioning. Now, maybe the as...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Did you shoot one ion at shields and the other at weapons? And do this twice before using the Pike? Or maybe, since it's an asteroid field, shoot both at shields first, then split the second volley.

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Er, fix doors rather than fight and hope that venting kills them off before they destroy a second system? Sure, you'd be left with 1 HP, but that's not dead.

And why didn't you upgrade shields with that scrap?

Re: [Tool] Superluminal 2.1.2

Thanks for this tool, kartoFlane. I've used it to make little tweaks to the stock ships, like removing Med-/Clone Bay stations, or moving rooms around. I didn't really care if the image wasn't the right fit for the new position. But in a recent version you enabled image selection. However, it doesn'...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

The jump before the Zoltan Quest, I got boarded by 4 Zoltans, 2 in the helm, 2 in the room above; the latter went towards the Medbay. Fine, I let them in. Then I sent the Door Mantis, Pilot Human, Shield Zoltan and Engi to fight them, venting towards the helm after they were in. But with no one to p...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

I'm sure it's been said before and will be said again:

Accepted a surrender; their last shot blew my ship up.

Fuck you, FTL.

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

I'm with Dirka on this one. Missiles! Grr! Although I've never seen the enemy use Pegasus Missiles. Is it possible for them to acquire one or are they just restricted to Hull/Breach Missiles to ruin your day? No, they can use Letoes & Artemises to ruin your day, too. They fire fast, and on Hard...
