Relevant (considering that practically all the spam seems to be coming from spammers based in mainland China, or at least affiliated with them, judging from WHOIS info for the advertised domains, the products allegedly offered, and the complete lack of care or linguistic skills): ------------- http:...

Re: Bug: Zoltan Crew + Weapons

Are you reordering weapons? The Zoltan power bonus is always associated with the weapon in the first slot, even if you're not activating it -- so if you don't want to use the halberd beam and instead need the bonus power on another weapon, you need to rearrange things so that the halberd beam is no ...

Re: Kestrel and Fed cruiser

Simplest way to get TLS achievement is to play until you get enough scrap for a repair, then find a weak (non-bursty damage) enemy next to a shop node and let it maul you until you're almost dead -- then jump and repair. Then realize you've wasted valuable scrap and probably restart... Interesting. ...

Re: Other games with harsh difficulty

I'd also suggest that the old Bullfrog game "Syndicate Wars" got pretty difficult towards the end. While early missions ease you in.. later on, you're frantically dodging miniaturized nuclear warheads or rods literally *dropped from orbit*, or trying to infiltrate enemy sectors, capture a ...

Re: Other games with harsh difficulty

King of Dragon Pass <3 High learning curve and 100% guarantee of losing. The game doesnt cheat you or give AI superpowers, it just decides you've played enough and need to lose now. Kinda like FTL sometimes. I gotta find that game again :lol: The original KODP is actually legally available as A-Sha...

Re: What The Actual F*CK were you thinking?

Phase 2 surge can, in theory, be survived by maxed out shield and high engine (and a defense drone to shoot down incoming boarding drone). *frown* Doesn't the boarding drone simply teleport/breach in, bypassing any defense drones you may have? IIRC, that it does so is explicitly mentioned in the dr...

Minor suggestions.

Fun game -- hadn't heard about this until it was already available on Steam, which tells me I've put in 39 hours so far. Quite enjoyable, if a bit heavy on the randomness -- e.g. being offered a weapon pre-igniter can be quite the lucky event. Some possible interface tweaks have come to mind that mi...
