Re: FTL Captains Edition: Call for Events/Textlists

Re: [MOD] Fleet Mod

Shields should be INSIDE the main ship, that way the bubble will be around the main ship, not in that small zoomed out cruiser which does nothing other than provide shields to itself. The shield ship should instead provide artillery support. The main ship should also include a drone system, as it's ...

Just what I thought. Instead of making the escort ship a weakness, you could add doors that don't connect with any rooms but instead somewhere else in another part of the ship.

Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.102b

I think these conversations should be more varied as to giving the player to choose his response on several occassions. For example, You could try to comfort your Rockman when he talks about his family, or tell him to forget it. These choices would only be for flavor and would rarely have event outc...

Re: FTL Re-assembled V.1

Zoltan Boarding Ship (Hardcore)

Mantis Stealth with no shields (Gonna be tough when you get hit with this one)

Rock ship with no shields but Rock Plating and Titanium System Casing and little engine power

Slug ship based on burning out the enemy crew/ship.


Just brainstorming here.

Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.1

Nah. Nanoclouds are the most dangerous zones of CE, and they should stay like that. If anything, the most effective thing against AI ships (read: NOT auto-ships) are boarding drones. Agreed. I once made the mistake of sending my mantis boarding party to an AI ship without knowing they had no life s...
