Re: New subsystems on the news page

You place too much emphasis on crew lives. ;) Consider this: Even if their skills never advance a bit (which is simply not true for non-boarders), your crew never dies. Endless clones are provided to be sent in wave after wave. Until the killbots reach their kill limit. It's beauty. Poetry. OP. ;) W...

The turnout wasnt much but the the RNG made up for it by seriously trolling by first showering us with Bomb weapons for which there wasn't any ammo, then deciding if i won't be happy with Bombs, i will not get a d...

It is mentioned on the FTL News page, but deserves a shout out here.

Re: Some discussion on balance changes

Teleporting has allways been OP. And the counter for teleporting on the enemy side has allways been the same. A medbay! Plus some AntiPersonnel drones and Rock crew... Drones and Rocks simply take longer to die and during this time you are facing incoming enemy fire. If you also have to aim your own...

Re: New subsystems on the news page

The new systems certainly open up the gameplay. Hacking seems brief but potent, though which system to hack would be an interesting question. If there's a nasty missile on their ship and you've no defense drone, you could interrupt their weapons. Depleting enemy shields could be a lifesaver if you h...

Re: [MOD][NEW UPDATE! 3.3.2013][v1.2] Advanced Battle System

Try to rename Advanced Battle Systems v1.2_w_asteroids_and_graphics_fix.zip
to: Advanced Battle Systems v1.2_w_asteroids_and_graphics_fix.ftl

That should get it to work with SMM. You may need to enable the "Show filename extension" option in Windows.
