Re: Anti Ship Battery in sector 2 on easy?!

Unless you accidentally follow a dead-end path, its very easy to not get caught by the rebel fleet. For that reason alone I think it's fine to have the anti-ship battery even on easy. If you're playing on easy then there is less pressure to maximise the number of beacons you visit, and so avoiding t...

Re: Advanced Edition: First impressions thread

My first impressions are that the new content is excellent. The game's balance seems to be better, and the new stuff adds some strategic depth and variety. I'm pretty happy with it. However, I think some of the user-interface could do with some polish. Some of the new on-screen information makes the...

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

I don't own a Surface non-Pro, but I agree that it would be great if FTL was ported to run on one. It would be good for all touch-enabled Windows computers, both x86-64 and ARM.

Re: Boarding vs Destroying?

One of the things that bugs me about the reward bonus for boarding is this: If I decide to play the game with an explicit intention of getting the most powerful end-game weapons possible, boarding is still is the most effective way to achieve this goal because the resources bonus from boarding will ...

Re: Boarding vs Destroying?

I think Elhazzared is right that if one method of defeating enemies yields greater reward, then that method will be used as much as possible, whenever it is possible. This will probably to the detriment of variety and hence to the detriment of 'fun'. In my opinion, the bonus rewards for boarding in ...

Re: Some discussion on balance changes

Teleporters Fix : Don't let teleporters go through shields. Yours and/or your opponents. Watch some Star Trek and others, and you'll see that's what happens. To use the teleporter, all levels of your shields are dropped and have to recharge. You also have to reduce your enemy's shields. (Perhaps th...

Re: Some discussion on balance changes

I don't think getting rid of the scrap bonus for taking ships intact is a good idea. Balancing higher rewards vs. an approach that quickly neuters the enemy ship adds variety, and is good to keep the weapons varied in feel - raw destructive power vs. aptitude for crew kills. Teleporters make taking...
