You guys can use whatever programs or OS you like of course. But I'd like to point out that I provided a clean download here and that it is in the users own responsibility to navigate the Internet safely. :roll: IMO its not fair to put the blame on the mod if users decide to click on adds present on the download side. It is in your own power to block these or at last check what you are clicking on. I'm aware that mediafire is not an optimal hosting site but unless anyone suggests a feasible alternative, you'll be stuck with it. I did not find any other sites with limitless download bandwidth and reasonable amount of cloudspace so far.

What clinched it for me was the music. I have to confess that I saw there was an option for a music add-on, I have to say I didn't have very high hopes for it. I downloaded it anyway since I didn't want to miss out, but the fellow that did the original FTL music was brilliant, and I figured that the CE additions would be badly out of place.

Well, they are different, but in a terribly great way. I mean that literally -- the Quarantine music in particular can send shivers down your spine. I get the impression that the author(s) were aiming for a horror-type feel there, and they were quite successful. Even when my ship isn't really in any immediate danger, I find that I feel more grim when I'm in that type of sector than elsewhere, and that's a testimony to the skill of whoever made these tracks.

The quarantine themes are from the OST to Era of the Dead. You can give the actors credit on Jamendo if you like. ;)

maybe SS should make a horror themed sector, things like your crew thinking they saw shadows, someone complaining about 'visions' or an ai malfunctioning, strange ship encounters (like enemy ships with breaches on the hull with no crew inside or oxygen attacking you), etc. Maybe use the 'Horror' track that was going to be the original Slug theme. :)

Nothing to 'creepy', just a dark tone over it and mystery, maybe a few events related to some events, some crew members being killed mysteriously, while new ones appear out of the blue.

maybe some of those events you go check to see your clone bay to find your crew only to find it powered down.

Idk, this is just a mix match of ideas from the ftl piece 'horror', some ghost events and the race ghosts, etc.

Nexus for FTL EXISTS?!?!?


Someone should make that the main FTL mod website.... I mean it's so much better then having over 20 different download websites as it confusses people, also how sometimes the folder is a ZIP, rar, .ftl, etc....

*distant howls* Toooooorent, toooooorent!
Although, I understand that it require seeding first, which may be not optimal for you. Or it doesn't - mediafire and torrent combo resulted in me checking torrent availability - usually, at least 20 people were seeding already, which meant better speed than in mediafire by a factor of 2, at least. In unlikely case that no one was seeding, I grabbed mediafire file myself, and started seeding immediately, pointing torrent to downloaded file.

Although, we're getting a little side-topic'ed here, as mediafire, while temperamental, isn't *that* bad. Even for me, who doesn't use add-block. Although I'm not best example, as I use no-script and selective scripting whitelist. Which does the same as add-block + triple as much, without pestering with downloading any 3th party lists ;)

The Nexus opened its doors to all games a few months ago.

I've found a bug with the Hull Ripper prefix when applied to adaptive beams. When adaptive beams reach their max, say, 3 damage for an adaptive beam II, the damage multiplier is only applied to its starting damage. So when an HR Adapt. Beam II hits a system-less room, it only does 4 damage instead of 6.

Well, correct me if I'm wrong but AFAIK it is still the first victory on CE and "Hard" difficulty level that we know about:
http://s13.postimg.org/hkfr2p347/ce_hard.jpg

What a super-hyper upgraded Red Tail (with all systems and weapons one can dream about) wasn't able to do, was done by only moderately equipped Mantis B aka TheShipThatMostPeopleCryAboutBeingUnderPoweredInCE, aka TheInFactMostPowerfullShipInFTLCeOrVanillaDoesntMatterAsSoonAsYouManageToGetPastFewStartingSectors ;) If you still think boarders are underpowered in CE, take a look at this winner equipment, and ask yourself, what any other ship would be able to do with so laughable weapons (BTW, adaptive was bought in Sector 7, replacing Hasta, and Artemis missile - the one that Kestrel starts with - on sector 6, replacing... Leto.). Sure, it was a lucky "barely" win (I managed to avoid damage at 2x last boss superweapon outbursts, a single stray hit would send me into the all-to-known junkyard)

Anyway, to make boarding anyone and everyone a piece of cake, I installed hacking system, which in 90% of cases was used to hack enemy's medbay, after luring full enemy staff there, by sending Mantises there. After activating hacker, as you may imagine, it was a quick bloody bath, even bigger than average episode of GoT ;) Via the same method - just after destroying Ion and Beam - I've eliminated crew of Flagship in phase 1. Crew of countless Rebel Cruisers and battleships meet the same fate on the way through all 8 sectors.

Ah, the thing important to mention is that I've bought Zoltan Bypass unit in sector 7, which helped greatly in phase 3 (and "helped" seems like an epic understatement, I suppose, considering how long it took me to neutralize zoltan super-shield, even without saving rockets). BTW, the first attempt at phase 3 started with Flagship disabling my - of course - teleporter, so I jumped away (leaving flagship to happily pound Fed base a little), and returned, this time getting shield weakened, as seen on picture. Anticipation boss fight, I've produced something like 35 rockets in various beacons of sector 7, via ammo manufacturer (it was a nebula, so many empty sectors), which I was carrying with me since sector 5, almost not used before.

All in all, the final fight was a tough one, but the whole run almost relaxing - to the point that I was almost certain that I can't win it, as it goes too smooth.

Thank you, Sleeper (and all people credited) for creating CE and making a win on hard the thing that *really* feels like an achievement!

Thank you so much for this incredible mod. I love it!

created an account here just so i could post a crash report

slug cruiser, second section of nebula deep space, crashed jumping to a beacon.

picture: http://i.imgur.com/omEyZIw.png

details:

the picture is after i reloaded my crash save and successfully made the same jump that crashed the game

the game initially crashed jumping from 1 to 2

2, 3, and 4 were nebulas before the crash, after reloading they were not. the other nebulas pictured on the map i believe were not nebulas prior to the crash.

after the crash i reloaded and successfully jumped, and the mantis convoy event occurred.

my executable is patched with the large address aware program. I used 64 bit Java for slipstream mod manager when i initially installed the mods.

Indeed - I have noticed that after recovering from the crash, nebulas close to player stay the same, but regions further away (de-)nebulae'ize randomly. I haven't checked if it can happen with normal save+quit, too. Might be worth mentioning to FTL devs as a bug.
