Re: Anyone unlocked all the ships *Contains Spoilers*

I was wondering has anyone unlocked the Engi or mantis quest ships on Easy Mode ? Occured to me all the times I've gone looking for the quest ships on easy mode I never got the quest but got it first time I went looking for it on Normal coincidence ? or has no one unlocked the engi/mantis quest shi...

Re: A little help here? Kinda stuck.

Beams do nothing to shields.

Fire does hull damage if it breaks a system (I believe).

How Do Things Stack (Question)

Hey, Was wondering if anyone knew how things interacted in this game. For instance, let's say you have Advanced Hull Plating and Reinforced Hull Plating, which give 25% and 15% chance to avoid hull damage. Are these multiplicative or additive? As in, does the game just say "Well, you got obviou...

Re: Mantis Ship... [Spoilers]

They're not supposed to be weak, either. They're supposed to be side grades that have unique play style. I feel like the Stealth and Engi ship work great with this, but the Federation Cruiser feels like a direct upgrade to the Kestral and the Mantis seems relatively weak.

Re: Anyone unlocked all the ships *Contains Spoilers*

For posterity's sake, I'll just put down how to get every ship , if people come to this thread late. This is obviously spoilers: >Playing on Easy or Normal has no effect on unlocking ships. Engi Ship: To Unlock: Just get to the fifth sector. Not too bad, especially on easy. Notable Attributes: Comes...

Re: Mantis Ship... [Spoilers]

Ship Spoilers, obviously. I do think the Mantis ship is the worst. It has a pretty mediocre layout and its starting weapons aren't so hot. Likewise, its special augment isn't that great (I don't value movement speed very high). Starting with 3 mantis is cool, but until you get a rank 3 teleporter it...

Re: A little help here? Kinda stuck.

Engines are great, but you need the energy to actually give you dodge, which I usually don't have too much spare of early on. Another small tip is to turn stuff off you don't currently need. So, when starting out, turn off your medbay to put more energy into your engine. Or, when you see them fire, ...

Re: stupid boss fight

Basically what talhydras said. I think the fight isn't that bad as long as you know what's coming. This is clearly spoilers. What I think you need: >Stealth >Shields 3/4, manned at all times >Some way to kill the missile launcher I'm sure there are other ways to go about it, but I've just stuck with...

Re: Suggestion: Sometimes beam pierce shields

I think beams are great. Even the small mini-beam that the Stealth ship starts with can do 4 damage to lots of ships when the beam is placed correctly (against some ships it's impossible, and you can only do 3 damage). That's insane for a starting weapon, especially when it only costs 1 power. I thi...

Re: Drones - not sure I understand them

Hey,

If your current ship doesn't start with it, you need to purchase a Drone Bay from the shop. I believe they cost 80 scrap.
