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

I try to avoid the fleet as much as I can, but if I have to fight it once, I want that to be a fair fight at least(Their better gear isn't the problem). The ASB completely destroys that(that's why it should only happen on the 3rd or 4th fight in a row and not randomly. Easy doesn't help with it and ...

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

ASB in sector 1, on the first rebel ship, on EASY. I think the team overdid it a bit. The reason why it was added is to stop point farming because a low sector run where you destroyed a lot of rebels was worth more than getting to the final boss ? The highscores are local and if people want to get h...

Re: Ranking the C ships

Ok, I've played a bit with some of the C layouts now and here are my new thoughts: Kestrel C(unlocked) I haven't played as this ship yet, but I like the design of it(we got a rebel colored kestrel and now a pirate one :D ). Layout looks nice, exept for the empty space in the middle of the ship.(It's...

Re: More control over drones?

Drones shoot faster, but unlike weapons they only shoot 1 shot, so no big shield piercing here(only if you use 2, and even then, only MK2 can break shields), so I don't see something wrong with this. An other thing would be the ship drones, they aren't that useful and feel a bit useless. Allow the p...

Re: Fuck you, Rebel Flagship.

AE Flagship is completely different than the normal one: The first phase uses Hacking, which might or may not be a problem: I've noticed that the enemy hacks always select the same system(or at least on easy), not sure if it changes every run or not, but it's very annoying on some ships. Here are th...

Re: How to Make the Flak Gun not OP

I think it'd make more sense and be more interesting if it were to use scrap (one for each broken up projectile), but in the aftermath, add that scrap to the scrap reward if there is one. Now there's a great idea. Blue options: Improved Piloting: Attempt to retrieve some of your fired flak. Advance...

Re: [Spoiler] FTL Editor v20 - Unlock ships, Edit SavedGames

Thanks for creating this !
I'm using it to merge my old savefile with my new one(and no, not for cheating), but I'd like to port the "ship best" data over. I found it in the Dump tab, but you can't edit(well, you can import but not export) it. Maybe add a option to edit ship best ?

Re: How to Make the Flak Gun not OP

I don't think that the Flak weapons are too op. Sure, they bypass shields and hit multiple systems, but you can't aim them that well and they have a higher chance to miss/can miss on ships with no evasion. The "no aiming" can be a problem if you need to hit the ship's engines so it doesn't...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

So I was doing a run with the Lanius cruiser. I was going for the oxygen achievement, so I vented most of the ship and left my human in the piloting. Relatively early on I got a crew teleporter (Lanius are brutal boarders), Reconstructive Teleport (they always go in at full health), DNA bank (virtu...

Re: Ranking the C ships

I have no idea on how to play with Stealth C. I tried to go into a battle and then activate the shield, but that's too slow. Charging the Shield up and then jumping to a beacon removes the shield(I can see why this would be overpowered with 4 shieds+this drone, but on this ship, it doesn't help). Th...
