Re: Problems with website

This is an issue that pops up from time to time, something like once every few months the ftlgame.com domain becomes hideously slow. In the past the causes have been server maintenance and hardware failures on the server side and bandwith issues, so i'm guessing it's no different this time. Fortunat...

I feel dirty.

I hear that!

As for the video... i'm a little dissapointed that it spoils so much of what would be great surprises when starting AE for the first time. Oh well... wont be long now.

Re: Why did my Linux save+quit not save?

Forwarded to devs. If you're correct, then hopefully it will be fixed as part of the Advanced Edition update.

Thanks for the report. :)

Re: no reward for warning shot to pirate

I think the wiki may be incorrect here. This is an unusual blue option because it's one of the rare few that accidentally penalise the player. You chase away a potentially scrap rich enemy and get nothing for your trouble except you are free to leave and suffer no battle damage.

Re: [Ship] BD-SI-87 (Stealth Interceptor)

Sorry it took so long to move the topic, i honestly missed it. PMing never hurts plus i cant miss it because i get an email notice sent. As for the AE system limit, it's set at 8 systems max, so any ship should be able to buy any system with a question mark over Fed cruisers and Cloaking. Cloning Ba...

Re: Inaccessible beacons

There is a slight chance that a beacon may be spawned without any links to it. Such a beacon never prevents the player from reaching the exit. I belive FTL code checks before spawning a quest at such a beacon so it should not interfere with gameplay. Stores may spawn there though. :D

Re: [MOD] A Strange New Galaxy 07.03.14 [WIP]

IMO Neutron missiles were weak already. Yes i did fear them and tried to get crew out of rooms i thought were targetted but they never felt like much of a threat. The aiming is random and there's no hull damage to worry about. As far as using them against the enemy, i don't think i've tried that. Th...

Re: New subsystems on the news page

Well spotted. I wonder if the Federation will congratulate the player for defeaing the Rebellion... then throw their ass in jail for piracy. Or maybe the C Kestrel simply wont hang around for the 'thanks' anyway. ;)

Welcome to the forum longtime lurker. :)

Re: Master Mod List

The character limit is still pretty big. It would not really help if the list was edited in such a way to make browsing it less clear. The main issue is that subsequent posts were never reserved because at the time it really didn't seem probable that a limit would be reached. One solution would be t...

Re: Will FTL on iPad be available free for Steam users?

I dont know the answer. All steam purchases are available across all steam apps provided the game supports the OS. In theory FTL:AE should then be in your steam library, but as i admitted, i dont know.
