in data.dat, how to find out what each sector has event wise

I've been doing some digging into the data.dat file and wanted to figure out how to tell what sector had which event, and which quests. at the beginning of each event page, I do notice a list for different types of systems. but I notice some that were missing but I knew they were in that sector. suc...

Re: How random generating works?

if you want to test it, start a game, save it, back it up. then plot a course into sector 3, then go back to your backed up save, run that, and see if you can plot the exact same course and see if the events are the same or if they are different, and at what point they are different. i'd do the test...

Re: BIG SPOILERS DONT READ IF YOU DONT LIKE EM

just look at the event part of the event data. its right there. its a very long event, with many branching paths, actually its more like a web more than a tree. im guessing no one has seen this event, theres also a mantis evasion as well which I've never seen before and at the end of it they have qu...

Re: Hi...i have a strange question

yes and no, you can play without a keyboard, but your game play will be hindered very much without hot keys, and you'll have a lack of pause since you have no space bar.

my suggestion, get a usb keyboard

Re: When enemy uses FTL target helm or engine?

It's simply ask about the over kill factor. you should never use more than one weapon to take out either unless the dodge rate is too much to handle. If your weapons can take out the engines in one hit go for it go for pilot. Destroying either one will do the same job but engines take longer to repa...

Re: Why? !!FTL!! Why?

no offense you just might have terrible timing with your screen shots, but according to the picture you sent, non of the other parts were attacked, they're all at full health and only the shields were damaged. meaning that the shields were hit very recently by all your shots, or they've been constna...

Re: Why? !!FTL!! Why?

yea.... I cant see why your blaming the game when you are wasting all your shots onto the destroyed shields. the ion alone was enough to lock it down and then you should have sent your weapons onto other parts like the weapons. not to mention your weapon loadout isnt really diverse enough but then a...

Re: No saves is not fun.

1. there is a quick save, just not during battle. 2. the reason there is no actual save is because it would defeat the whole rogue-like experience. 3. with saves you can abuse the hell out of it by saving, then restarting from that save point every time something goes wrong that you dont like, that ...

Re: Does the Anti-Bio Beam pierce shields?

wow I cant believe this thread, so many people doesnt seem to understand what the anti-bio beam is for. this weapon is meant to kill the crew, not destroy the ship. of course its gonna take longer cuz its a harder task to do. and because of that, the game will reward you with a bigger prize at the e...
