Re: Doors Are Important!

I -never- bother with upgrading my doors. You can vent the fires out either way, and I know enough about boarder AI not to need anything better than basic door controls.

Re: Got Secret Ship on first ever playthrough! (Spoilers)

I will have to correct several flawed statements in this thread: 1. You can find the stasis pod in a distress signal (plain distress signal to be exact, no ships or anything) in Engi, Rock, or Pirate sectors of any kind. 2. You can find the Zoltan scientists in any Engi or Zoltan sector on plain bea...

Re: On the topic of Modding

Out of curiosity, how do you feel about detouring/trampolining? I'm happy to refrain from releasing what I've got so far, but given it just survived the update, and it works, and I can inject whatever I please ... I'm assuming you'd probably prefer we work with your assets rather than corrupting th...

Re: [MOD][WIP] FTL: Overdrive

It's not like I'm stealing the assets and trying to make a profit off a clone or something, the idea is to provide modders a means to add new content to the game (which I'm sure most people here will agree is a good thing) and to allow players to play said content. The devs don't lose out on anythi...

Re: Your dumbest FTL moments

My ship was on fire, the O2 was out (along with many other things), and my crew was low on health. Somehow, I repaired all the systems without losing crew, and warped away. There was a ship there that I promptly destroyed, but my crew was losing health. I didn't know why, the other ship didn't take...

Re: Final Boss Guide (Spoilers)

While this is an excellent guide, don't lose hope if you get to the end without what is perscribed. There is still hope with other set-ups which I learned on my first Normal victory. No Cloak, No Teleporter, and even missing a few reactor blocks. 5 on the engine, 2X2 on shields, weapons: burst lase...

Re: Tips to (power)level the crew

You can power level repair by keeping a fire going in your ship. It's probably a little more dangerous than these other suggestions, though. Indeed. fires damages hull too whenever it damages subsystem. each level of repair requires 18 points. hull max is 30 and you probably took a bit of damage ge...

Re: Final Boss Guide (Spoilers)

Well I won the thing with a Red-Tail, unknown gear layout with 3 mantis and 1 rock as boarders and at least 2 heavy lasers mark 2 (i remember firing them in sync, think i also had some sort of burst laser). 1. Beam my elite team (dual mantis, one of them the legendary Mantis thief KazaaakplethKilik ...

Re: Best ship? [POLL]

Right now I'm very close to winning the game for the first time using a VERY lucky Red-Tail that also unlocked the Gila Monster and the Zoltan cruiser whose name I don't remember.

So until I get time to try out these new ships, my vote goes to the Red-Tail : :D

Re: Boarding Defense - A Commander's Manual

I am sorry to say that you are misinformed. The boarding parties go for the nearest system or subsystem, NOT some preset priority. You are however right that venting the atmosphere will easily herd them into a more suitable area for your troops to fight in. Also, I don't really waste my scrap on bla...
