Is this just a general question? I don't think this is the right place to ask if that's the case...

And also, I'm not sure what kind of question this is... All achievements, both ship and general are found in STATS on the main menu

Did anyone ever really test fire/breach chance in depth?

It seems like setting both to 10 makes it always start a fire (and it looks like you can't get both at once), along with some other numbers I tried (8-8 resulting in a large number of fires, 5-10 [but not 10-5 for fire, then I couldn't get a single breach] resulting in roughly similar number of hazards, but this is just short testing), does the fire chance get calculated first and, if unsuccessful, the game rolls the breach chance?

I was wondering if anyone ever tried to develop a "free jump" augmentation, something that allows you to reach the exit beacon in 1 jump, or even to jump to the last sector instead of traveling across each of them.
Has anyone ever considered a Warhammer 40,000 Mod for this game? It would be awesome!

I don't think its possible to do that. You can create a jump to the Hidden Crystal Sector instantly but that doesn't help matters much at all.

*sad face

Maybe it is kinda hardcoded: think about it, when you check the system map, you are always limited to an area surrounding your current position. If you could extend that area, you could theorically jump much further, even to the exit buoy. :roll:

I dunno. But your question did inspire me to think of a Quantum Leap concept where you always leap into another sector after each fight or jump hoping that the next jump will finally be the jump home...

Pity I'm not good with event scripting.

I want to translate the whole game into my native language which is Polish. However I have no idea where I can find files related to texts. Could anyone tell me where I can find those files and how to open them? I will be grateful if somebody helps me.

Hello!

If you already have slipstream, you can go into file>unpack dats (or something like that) and you'll get it all unpacked into a folder. You'll find all the xml text files and images there (text is found in the data folder, most of it in files with 'event' in the name).

There were some attempts to translate into Polish, but I think they're all very much dead. FTL has a lot of text.
