Re: Whining

Those boarding things seem to end many peoples games , but it is very easy to deal with, just open all doors, except of the medbay and send your crew there, the boarding party will either suffocate or fight in the medbay and lose. Also it is extremely easy and cheap to prepare for it, its called bl...

Re: Quest transforms system

It is "working as coded", yes. Most programs do. What I'm questioning is the design behind that code. Obviously when you get a quest marker the game has to overwrite an existing sector's event with the quest-reward event, but this should be done in an invisible way. In other words, quest d...

Re: Enemy repair progress doesnt affected by damage

The question really is, when you damage a system that is red (i.e. completely damaged), does the new damage have any effect? My suspicion is that no, it doesn't; the "progress towards being repaired" track is not affected by incoming damage. Damage simply removes bars from the system, but ...

Re: Whining

Honestly you can jump out from 80% of "impossible" fights. Granted sometimes AI get lucky and destroy bridge and engine room almost instantly but chance is really low. You cant complain game is hard - because in beacons you are not visited may be loads of free weapons and crew - you just ...

Re: Whining

lol... I love the implication from these whiners about how every run in a rougelike should be a win too... That's not what I said. I said every game in a roguelike should be winnable . My deaths in, say, Angband or NetHack or even Dungeons of Dredmor are always my fault, for failing to judge how da...

Quest transforms system

I have long-range scanners, and I saw a system that had a sun in it. Avoiding it, I went to another sector, where I was given a quest to take a ship to the system with a sun in it. The sun was gone! Not that I'm complaining, but it does seem odd.

Re: I have but one complaint. (Weapons)

You could fix the Burst Laser Mk 1 by reducing its cooldown by a few seconds. If it took 8s to reload instead of 11s, then it'd have similar FPS to the Mk 2 (.25 shots/sec vs. .27 shots/sec) while being slightly cheaper.

Re: [Suggestion] Volley Fire

There's relatively few situations in which this would be useful -- you'd have to have at least two weapons where you don't care which of them gets wasted against the shields. If all your weapons are burst lasers or the like, that's fine, but if you have a heavy laser, hull laser, or ion cannon in th...

Re: Whining

The fact that 95% of the game is predicated on random rolls means it CANNOT be "unfair-to-impossible stack against me" you have just as many chances for it to roll in your favor as you do against. False. "Random" is not equivalent to "fair" because the rolls are stacke...

Re: Whining

It's been long enough now that I can't remember precisely what my build was or the events of the fight. He ion bombed my shields, which completely disabled them IIRC; at that point the two attack drones went to town on my other systems. The helm also got ion-bombed. My FTL charger was definitely at ...
