Re: What happened in your last run?

Kestrel B ship I'd been trying to get a crystal crew member the entire game (which I pretty much do every run). I had the stasis pod in sector 3 and had a few possible sectors to open it but couldn't get an event to save me. The very last beacon before going to the last stand I finally opened that d...

Re: Shield question

There are a few other events that can result in repairs. A more common one is a beacon that offers 3 levels of repairs for scrap.

Re: Some newbie questions

Drones require you to have drone control system. It would be in the bottom right hand side of your heads up display. It would have slots just like your weapons system. If you don't have that then you can't equip drones. It's easier to explain in the opposite manner. A room without a system will be j...

Re: So, is normal on the Stealth ship even possible?

Stealth A isn't just possible to win it's pretty dependable. It's not one of my favorite ships by far, but I expect to win when I start a game with it. Really you're only in the danger zone before you get shields. A beam drone could wreck your day, but even that is unlikely. You just need to disable...

Re: Living off the land achievement.

I recommend Mantis B. That was what I chose and it only took 1 try to get the achievement. Obviously RNG luck was probably on my side a bit, but boarding tends to get you enough fuel in my experience. Also, be sure to buy 6 fuel for 12 scrap when given that option. Also "secure the fuel supply&...

Re: FTL Multiplayer

I would think boarding would be a really bad idea. I mean against enemy ships they are either charging their FTL drive at the beginning of the fight or they're not going to (unless you're also shooting them while boarding). Against a player they're always going to be charging their FTL drive and it'...

Re: 1 achievement left for 100%: they never saw it coming

I'd also go with Stealth B. It does require a lot of luck of course. Just getting a pre-igniter is rare. However, if you can find one early enough the Stealth B is a sure fire way of getting the achievement. You can still get it late in the game though. There are odd occasions where you'll find a sh...

Re: FTL Multiplayer

I doubt that it's possible in a mod, but mirror mode would be cool. By that I mean a mode where players can play the exact same game as others. Meaning every jump would result in the same RNG. If you go to a store it has the same options available as if someone else goes to the same store, if you de...

Re: What happened in your last run?

Got blowed up in the Stealth B. Again. T_T Me too. :lol: Got to sector 2 with the standard setup plus I got greedy and bought a teleporter at the first store because I got a mantis when I agreed to spare some slavers. First encounter in sector two was a zoltan ship with a beam drone. It took out my...

Re: What happened in your last run?

Kestrel B it was a fairly easy run, but there was a point where I was getting a little nervous. I was down to 5 hull points left and hadn't been able to find a store for a really long time. I had maxed shields and a defense drone. So, I was fairly well protected, but there's always a chance of a mi...
