How do you get it started on normal though? Is it just luck of the draw until you hit a shop or can you consistently get through sector 1 with it?

Re: Engi Variant B

It's difficult, but not underpowered. Need to ion the shields then laser the weapons. But yeah, you're right about needing more firepower asap. Either some attack drone or additional weapons. the one extra engine slot most ships get won't make that huge of a difference, btw. It's like 5 more dodge....

Engi Variant B

What am I missing? I cannot for the life of me get this thing started. Most of the other ships i've found so far take a little trick or knack to understanding how they work, and then I can get them off the ground. This one I can barely get 20 scrap in. I've yet to really even make it out of sector 1...

Re: Unlocking new ships is way too difficult

Several thoughts- 1. This is a dugeon crawl. It's supposed to be hard. 2. Some prizes are fairly easy to get. The Voltan one didn't strike me as all that difficult to figure out and the Taurs is basically thrown at your face for just surviving. 3. I'll admit that maybe one or two more, easy to find ...

Re: My 2 cents as a KS backer and fan of the game

On difficulty- I want the game to be hard. I like hard. I enjoy hard, but sometimes it feels a little too random. I'll accept "your crew member was eaten by spiders" on my first jump because I chose to push the button that said "lets go look at the spiders" and if need be I'll tr...
