Achieve This

There are a couple of achievements I haven't done. I was going after Clash of the Titans in the Crystal A. I named the ship Rock Crusher , in hopes of fulfilling my quest, but to no avail. Even up to Rock Crusher VII , I still haven't accomplished it, though IV, VI & VII landed in my top ten sco...

Re: What were your most unusual/ridiculous fights ever?

I was having a so-so run with the Predator II (Mantis A). The only new weapon I acquired was a Pike Beam; still had the Basic Laser and Small Bomb. Stores had no weapons, or either crappy missile weapons or missile weapons requiring 3 power, which I wouldn't have been able to use for a long time. I ...

Re: Need tips on beating normal

I would say "never say 'never'." Don't visit a store if you aren't going to be buying anything. If you only have 30 scrap it's a waste of a beacon unless you desperately need fuel. Or desperately need repairs (though you don't always need to repair your ship to full health). Or if you're f...

Re: Need tips on beating normal

First off, the fed cruiser A, the only ship that has made it to the boss and almost beat it. I had level 4 shields, level 3 engine, two defense drones lv1 and maxed the artillery beam. I thought focusing on defense and using only the beam would be an effective, if terribly slow, way to get through ...

Re: Crystal Cruiser Blues

It is a tough ship to get. I wasn't so quick to beat the game initially, so frustrated with that, for a while I just played to unlock ships (all on Easy). The Crystal ship took the most missions, I'm sure, many aborted when I had no Rock Homeworlds on my path. Also the Rock A is frustrating in itsel...

Re: Feature Request: Auto Save

I wonder if it would be possible to have a hidden and temporary autosave, which would get deleted when you exit the game normally, but would be available if the game crashed.

I suppose it would still be found and abused, though.

Re: How the heck....

Well, yes, with the stealth ships, perhaps a little more luck is required. I had a lot of frustratingly short runs, especially with the DA-SR 12. The funny thing is, once I won, I had one of my highest scores. Do you cloak right away? I learned to do that, as long as the enemy doesn't cloak first (t...

Re: Rock Cruiser B help?

Well, don't burn them so fast. ;) Them's the breaks. Hopefully one of these times your Rock will get in a killing blow.

Re: Rock Cruiser B help?

You have to board their ship and kill an enemy in close combat while they're burning. Somewhat tough, as they can flee, so try setting the next room on fire - and pick an area of the ship where they don't have multiple rooms to run to.

I actually got Ancestry before this one.
