Re: last boss

You beat the boss without any offensive weapons or drones? That would mean the only other possible way of taking down the zoltan shields is with crystal ship vengence shots. Somehow I just don't see that happening before you get destroyed or the zotlan shield gets replenished. Anyway the final boss ...

Re: FTL for Surface 2 in Windows Store (ARM)

Surface Pro or Surface RT? Surface Pro should be able to just play the windows version of FTL.

Re: AI / Cyborg / Drones

I wouldn't mind seeing a playable A.I. ship. No cyborg crew. No crew at all. Just an A.I. ship. It might need an augmentation created for it. Maybe Automated Piloting. It would mean you don't need to man the pilot station to jump and dodge rate would be something less than if you had a crewman manni...

Re: Dubious "Slave" Depiction in the Game Universe

I don't see why slavery in FTL is an issue. Slavery is quite real and continues to this day. It is not only a human trait either. It occurs in nature as well. For instance ants will enslave other types of ants if they can outnumber/overpower them. It's doesn't seem unreasonable to me that aliens wou...

Re: 80 hours, still no wins

Usually if you're getting whittled down the problem is your defenses are not up to the task. Ideally you want to take no damage in a fight. It may not be possible and/or may require some luck, but that's a great goal to have. That means you should be trying to upgrade your defenses as soon as possib...

Re: I give up. Help me with Kestrel B aka Red Tail.

Do you generally use boarding to beat enemies or do you destroy their ships? Boarding has a lot of advantages. It gives you more scrap and once in a while a weapon, drone, augment, or crewman. I usually try to convert ships into a boarding machine as soon as possible. From then on it's all fairly st...

Re: Teleportation SUCKS! Boarding shuttles! Crew upgrades! A

A cargo bay is an interesting idea. Perhaps it could store quest items (I know there's only one right now but they could add more). It would give boarders something to potentially steal. Maybe allow them to steal anything in the cargo bay if they teleport back to their ship from the cargo bay while ...

Re: Fix the scoring system (POST if you agree please)

I don't think fighting the rebels should get you any score. If anything maybe make it a negative for getting caught. Gives it even more of a strategy to deciding whether to hit a few more beacons or just go on to the next sector.

Totally unexpected and all gravy. I would have thrown money at this update without even thinking but they're giving it to us for free. So awesome!

Re: Drone control and 1st free drone schematic

I just purchased drone control in the 2nd sector and get a defense drone. So, I think you were just seeing a coincidence.
