Re: Side with the Engi or Mantis

This event is the one I am least fond of (none of my mantis dudes ever do 5 damage to the enemy). After getting this event 5 times in one play and it damaging me 4 of those times (last one killed me), I decided to check it out in the data.dat file. Spoiler: Defending him is 50/50 between joining you...

Re: Gaining Mantis Cruiser

I unlocked it without having a mantis, just a teleporter and lv.2 medbay. Though I did have two rock dudes on their ship, but that's pretty much everything.

Re: Bugged slug cruiser?

I noticed that too. I went back to that thread and on page 4 or 5 it was said that there is no blue option for the first page, and it comes later if you pick the sneaky option. That threads first post is a little misleading as it is.
Edit - confirmed not bugged

Re: Come place your bets on the release date

All major game releases are on Tuesdays, so I say the 4th. I don't have any scrap, but I do have 5 bars of Latinum... anyone know the exchange rate?

Re: Best of the best other indie Space Games while we wait

Star Ruler : a huge 4x RTS, which I swiped from an indie pack during the steam summer sale. It lets you build (and save) your own ships from scratch, so you can tune them to a specific task (e.g. my meter-long scout, my kilometer-long trade ship, or my 1000km-long flagship). There is also a mod (&q...

Re: [Suggestion] Real-life piracy

At the risk of prolonging this thread... No: it's an archetype, as it has been shown to follow a consistent pattern in such studies. The difference being that it is not based upon a personal impression, but rather actual documented evidence. Second, the papers I mentioned weren't talking about the q...
