Re: Go to shops in sector 1 & 2?

But of course it as always tempting to check whether or not you could get a zoltan, BL2, scrap recovery or repair arm at one of those stores. But that means getting less scrap per sector and later shields. Wait a minute what's repair arm doing in there? You don't buy the repair arm do you? From wha...

Re: Frantic?

It gets less frantic with time. Early on as situations are new to you it can seem quite frantic, but I've played for hundreds of hours now and most of the game is almost auto-pilot for me. Just remember to pause when you're feeling overwhelmed.

Re: Cloak: Is it useful?

Cloak is not a critical upgrade for most of the game, but it definitely has its moments. For instance if the enemy has a couple ion weapons or an ion blast mk II the ion effect can add up and disable all your shields. If you have cloak you can time it to dodge a shot and give the ion effect time to ...

Re: Drone control and 1st free drone schematic

Hmmm I think that might just be luck. I'm pretty sure I've gotten them randomly. Though I don't think I've paid a lot of attention to what sector I'm in when I buy drone control.

Re: Finding weapons

There are a few things you can do to maximize the weapons you have access too, but in the end the random number generator could always rain on your parade. 1.) Beat ships without destroying them. If you beat a ship with boarders, asphyxiation, bio-beam, fire, etc. to kill the crew then you have a be...

Re: why not save the shipstate after a bossfight for Multipl

I don't know how interesting it would actually be. It seems like playing against a human opponent would be very different from playing the computer. For instance humans will target your systems and sync up their weapon fire. Humans will vent their ship and force you to fight in the medbay with board...

Re: Yarrgg! Frusterated.

It's tough starting out. I just went back to watch Day9 playing FTL (seeing his play is what made me get the game in the first place). Now that I consider myself to be pretty much an expert I saw how much stuff he was doing wrong. It was almost painful to watch. Though it made me realize how many as...

Re: Boss Fight Essentials (SPOILERS)

Has anyone tried to win using only drones and boarding? I somehow made it to sector 8 in a Crystal-A with only the default crystal weapons, plus shields-6, engines-7, medbay-3, transporter-3, and drones defense-II and antiship-II. Not the best layout, and I made the mistake of killing all four weap...

Re: Did you know...

I actually just encountered this myself and it works. I had a couple rock crewmen on a AI ship trying to take out its piloting before it could jump...the darn thing cloaked and the jump imminent started flashing and I freaked out. I set the teleporter to bring them back which you can do while a ship...
