Re: How to get the Burn-Enemy Achievement?

Won't it work if the enemy has rock crew so they don't flee burning rooms when low on health?

Re: Slug Bug?

Your best chance to recruit a slug is if you check the shops in slug controlled nebulas.

Re: Level 3 sensors don't work on the boss.

Still it's annoying not knowing how close I am to disabling systems, and makes the upgrade seem like a big waste.

Re: Enemy's Artemis costs 2 power?

Are you sure you aren't mixing up the Artemis and hull missiles?

Level 3 sensors don't work on the boss.

Though it works on other enemies, level 3 sensors do not let you see the boss's power distribution. Thus I can't tell how much more damage I have to do to completely disable enemy systems.

Is this AI behavior intentional?

One time fighting the boss I hadn't yet killed any crew except some in the weapons rooms, and no other systems were damaged and all enemy crew were at full health, but when I damaged their medbay and caused a hull breach they never sent anyone to repair it, and just let it empty of oxygen and ignore...

I once had 18 crew hired in a single game. I maxed them out by buying crew in stores early on, and events kept throwing them at me as rewards. Two factors contributing to that were that I beat most enemy ships with boarding (I was using the carnelian so I had a teleporter at the start), and I upgrad...

Re: Unlocking the Slug Cruiser

What blue options are there? I've destroyed the ship and captured it, but never unlocked the cruiser. You picked the wrong item at the start. Rather than charging in you have to choose to wait and watch, then it gives you blue options. And in response to the original posting, you can unlock it with...

Re: Crystal Ship - Clash of the Titans

Btw, since it isn't clear from the description, does it have to be 15 in one run, or total over all runs?
