Re: Just Lost My Entire Save

In my opinion, this is a major flaw in an otherwise fantastic game. If profile loss occurs, then that certainly is a major flaw. However, that seems to be a very rare occurrence (I think I've only seen one or two people who've reported it happening), and may likely be related to non-game issues (ie...

Re: Yet another update Idea (but slightly different)

For reference, it's been said several times by the game developers that they're uninterested in adding any sort of multiplayer, ever, and any other new feature suggestions (rather than bug fixes) are, if at all implemented, likely to be fairly far down the line.

Re: Will future updates add more encounters/events?

There are dozens of ppl on this forums either posting "Mom, buy me that candy", "Mom, buy me any candy" or "Mom, are you going to buy me some candy?". Well, grownups know that no candy comes for free and Mom needs money to buy anything. If Mom will have some extra mone...

Re: Rate the unique ship augmentations from best to worst

Depends on what else you have in your ship. Medbot dispersal is good if you have a lot of Engi/Zoltan crew members. Less useful with a bunch of Rockman/Mantis members. Zoltan Shield is quite awesome in almost all situations, which is why the rest of the ship has several other limitations, but as an ...

Re: [MOD][WIP] Extra scoop of vanilla

Ah yes. The file I've been working on is called newvents.xml, but for the transfer over, it is renamed to events.xml.append, zipped, and renamed with .ftl as the extension. Believe it or not, all I've posted is the stuff which I have changed. There is some duplicate text in there because I still wa...

Re: [MOD][WIP] Extra scoop of vanilla

Silly question, but... is it actually called "newvents.xml" rather than "newevents.xml"? Additionally, aren't the START_GAME and START_BEACON events originally in "events.xml" not "newevents.xml"? (I'm not certain that either of these are the issue, but those ...

Re: Mod Manager - Merging Specifications

Whilst thorough, your proposal would require a fair bit of effort to implement in mod editors and managers. I would suggest using diff and patch which have been doing this job for years. There are implementations available in various languages and command line versions for most platforms if you can...

Re: [MOD][WIP] Extra scoop of vanilla

Okay, last night I tried a test run before things get too serious. Using grognak's mod manager and .ftl files, everything is fine at first. The mod manager repacks the data no problem. Then I open FTL and after loading is complete,it freezes and gives me a c++ error. I read around a bit and found i...

Re: [Request] Reset cloak cooldown and refill O2 on safe jum

I understand it but i don't like that. It would remove a big challenge from gamplay, esp. if you use the cloak an awfull lot. How so? You do realize that once you're "safe" (which is the only time anyone is talking about implementing the "speed up"), you can sit at a beacon inde...

Re: Just Lost My Entire Save

The game likes to idiotically delete your previous save when you quit out of it without pressing the save & exit button or when the game just randomly crashes. I got my saves deleted a few times because of that... However, you can find saves with all of the ships unlocked very easily on the int...
