Re: Humble bundle has two games FTL fans might like. 3 days

I bet FTL will be in a Humble bundle someday. Prediction: It will be humble bundle 23, in late 2016. FTL will have had lots of updates plus a full expansion pack by then, but it's appearance in bundle 23 will be strategically timed to garner even more interest in FTL 2, also to be released in 2016. :)

Re: FTL Is A Board Game

My friend has Space Alert and it's super fun.

Make sure you use the awesome Flash Mission Player - I like it way better than the mission DVD that the game comes with.

Re: [MOD] Turning The Tide v0.9

I really like this idea! I'll give it a try soon if I can. Gives you something to do with your super pimped-out ship if you want to joy-ride in it a bit longer instead of rushing to fight the boss. :) Is the destroyer going to be tougher than the "flagship" or about on par with it? ( hones...

Re: Did the update break asteroid fields?

I've sat there with two boarders on an empty enemy ship after killing their crew ...shield systems were destroyed on the enemy ship, but it was never hit once. No asteroids came. Meanwhile my ship was slowly worn down and destroyed by constant asteroid hits. Enemy ships do get treated the same (I a...

Re: Did the update break asteroid fields?

Update: I found an asteroid field that is working normally...seems like this only happens sometimes, and maybe not new in the new patch. It seems to be a property of the location - backing up my continue file before entering a "bugged" asteroid field seems to result in it being "bugge...

Did the update break asteroid fields?

It seems that since the update when I jump into an asteroid field I get hit by twice as many asteroids and the enemy ship is not hit at all. Two shield bars used to be enough to survive indefinitely in asteroids if you had no enemies. Now it is not. They come in volleys of 5-6 asteroids in fairly qu...

Re: Crystaline Cruiser unlock?

Is there any way to see ahead of time what sectors are on the map? Currently we only see colors, and you can kinda hope based on color/position. The Rock Homeworld, for instance I think I saw as a red sector 6 option? I remember it was red anyway. But there's other red sectors that appear in the sec...

Re: A Roque-like that works like the Rebels in FTL

The Rebel Fleet has the effect of making the optimal strategy one of going for broke / taking many risks for fear of falling "behind the curve" if you play it safe. In many "roguelike" games caution and playing it safe, so as to avoid a permanent death, was the name of the game. ...
