Re: Easily get extra scrap (video)

Aw, 5thHorseman, that's no fun. Surely it would be better to start with 4 Mantises, a 4-man Teleporter and a 4-man Medbay.

Re: Achieve This

Hurrah for the Pyromaniac (Rock B)! I didn't get a Fire Beam, but found another Fire Bomb instead. I had accumulated about 30 missiles at that point and tried to get the "Some people just like to watch ships burn" achievement. I didn't yet have L2 Sensors, trying to upgrade my ship in a no...

Re: Favorite Loadout?

The only time I've had 4 Burst Lasers Mk II was when I modded the Red Tail for Infinite Space (did not increase beginning Weapons Control, though). That was fun. The only time I've had 3 BL Mk II and won (that I have record of) was my first Normal victory (7th overall); also had an Ion Blast. It was...

Holy shit! :o

I was thinking: AAAAAHHHH! Y U NO BUY TELEPORTER IN 7TH SECTOR?!?!; and in the boss fight: AAAAAAHHHHHH! Y U NO POWER UP SHIELDS AFTER FIXING?!?!

A most judicious use of a repair station, if I do say so.

Re: Can you sell supplies?

You can only sell or trade them in certain encounters which aren't labeled. You hit a beacon and get offered a deal, and it may not be a deal you want.

Re: Favorite Weapon?

Re: Engi B. Well, you already have two System Repair Drones. At start, I usually vent most of the ship, leaving the bridge, the medbay and the connection with air. If you want your Engi to get repair experience after a battle, you just close the doors you need to and wait for there to be enough air....

Re: Favorite Weapon?

Maybe the question should be "what is your favorite weapon besides the Burst Laser Mk II?" :) I'm not sure I have just one. I like the Halberd Beam, because it does more damage than the Pike Beam, so you don't have to knock down all the Shields. Yeah, it's shorter, but I think that's good,...
