Re: [BUG] A Bazillion bugs in blueprint.xml

Also, speaking as a developer, I have far more important problems to work on than trying to figure out what random gobbledegook is supposed to do. If my users had to choose between "Make the parser less strict" and "Make the parser more featureful" then they will choose option B,...

Re: Boarding Overpowered? (Also Suggestions)

Boarding is rather overpowered, yes. I don't so much mind the idea of having to upgrade the O2 system to support more crew, but that's not going to hurt boarders more than other playstyles very much; everyone wants to have as large a crew as possible so they can quickly repair / repel boarders / etc...

Re: So I just beat the game on easy...

I played Normal for awhile, won once, got killed a hell of a lot more, and shouted myself raw at all the random deaths. I then concluded that playing on Normal was bad for my health and went on to play on Easy. Sure it's not much of a challenge, but it's a hell of a lot more fun for me . In short, y...

Re: Ship with 5 SHIELDS????

Yeah, no -- couldn't run. The ion bombs took out my shields and then the drones blasted my ship apart in short order. Despite my best efforts the FTL charger was only at about 60% when I died -- and I went into the fight with full hull, mind you.

Re: [BUG] A Bazillion bugs in blueprint.xml

Let me put it this way: the reason why web development is such a colossal pain in the neck today is because 10-15 years ago web browsers were accepting HTML that violated the schema (using invalid syntax or not-technically-valid tags). Partly this was because the standards weren't evolving fast enou...

Re: My ideas for making battles more interesting and rewardi

Enemies certainly do have door systems sometimes; I've lost boarders because they got low on health before my teleporter was ready and I couldn't send them wandering through the enemy ship to avoid death. Heck, the flagship always has level-3 doors. My main concern with the suggested system is that ...

Re: Need a middle difficulty

Yeah, this was suggested on the getsatisfaction page -- having sliders for adjusting scrap rewards, strength of enemies, etc. Personally I'd be happy with a difficulty that had Normal-level rewards but Easy-level ships.

Re: Ship with 5 SHIELDS????

And you thought the Boss was the worst ship out there ;) Haha, the worst ship i ran into was one that had 2 Mark II burst lasers and a Mark 3 burst laser as well. They also somehow had enough power to have 4 shields and at least 50% evasion. Screw u AI ships. :x Try 2 Burst 2s, 2 Ion Bombs, and 2 A...

Re: Noether Shield bug

It's intentional. Basically the game is saying "You don't get to start with shields, but you also don't need to find a store before you can have shields." Normally when you buy the shield system, it costs 150 scrap and starts with 2 bars, so this is still cheaper than starting without the ...

Re: I am soooo ANGRY!!!

EDIT: removed phase-3 spoilers. Sorry! Taking out drone control in phase 2 is still a great idea, since otherwise you have to deal with an Anti-Ship, Beam, and Boarding drone all the time (and your missiles will get shot down by its defense drone). The flagship has a lot of spare drones to throw at ...
