I don't have access to the code but I do not think it's been removed. I've not bothered testing it.

I was recently transporting back a couple Mantises, wounded but victorious, when the enemy's last shot got through and hit the teleporter, killing one of them.

Did I mention that with CE, there are guns that go through shields but only do crew damage? I had just healed my Mantis boarding team via airlock when one of those shots slams into the teleporter and causes a hull breach... :lol:

Get to sector 8 - repair beacons are way on the other side of the map.

Get to sector 8 - Federation Base is 5 linear jumps away. Beacon #3 is overrun with a Rebel Cruiser armed with a Kitchen Sink Module (everything! Mind Control, Hacking, Battery, Teleport, Clone Bay, 4 shield layers, 50% evasion, Missile Drones, Missile launchers)

Sure Captain's Edition makes FTL harder but you might as well have the game say "Fuck you meatsack for thinking you can win this game!"

WTF Haxx! Engines got hacked down to L1. And the pirate has a Vulcan (and a Medbay). Fuck you, FTL. :(

BTW, I have all that scrap because it's only a few jumps into the sector, and I was looking for a store, starting this battle with <50% HP and also wanting a weapon.

Happened to me once. Sector 7, looking for a store so I can finally buy myself a bloody cloaking device and I end up with my engines hacked and a Hull Missile with "Osprey" written on the side.

I escaped that battle, but the repair costs meant I couldn't get the cloak or any decent guns and my ship was destroyed in Phase 1.

This totally cheesed me;

Playing the Red Tail, got through the best sector one ever; got a Halberd "just floating in space" and got a D Drone I from a surrender, bought an Auto Loader from a store and had nearly enough scrap to get shields upgraded. Pretty sweet, right?

Second jump of sector 2, a nebula, an Ion storm. Meh, no biggie. Power down what I don't need, like the O2, get an extra laser up. The auto ship has an artemis (of course) that does not miss. Weapons room - boom! Fix that. Shields - boom! Fix that. Rooms just have that tiny shade of pink showing - meh, no biggie. Guess which room the next missile hits? And breaches? Yep, the O2 room. Major crew juggling, manage to destroy the auto ship, get the O2 repaired, crew healed up, jump away. Small detail - the rooms are still pretty pinkish.

Next jump, Auto Hacker. And I knew, I KNEW, as soon as I saw it; that hacking drone is going straight for my O2 room. And yep - hits that O2 room and in a few seconds there is no O2 anywhere on my ship. And just as I think this can't get any worse! a missile from the auto hacker hits where?- the freaking O2! Which I can't get in and fix, 'cause the hacking module has the doors "locked". One crew member expires, the others huddle in the medbay, clinging to life...until, a missile thuds into that room as well.

So, deeply, sincerely, from the bottom of my heart..." Fuck you, FTL!!"

That's why you should wait for the oxygen to cycle back into the ship before leaving the ion storm. You don't need fully-powered engines after all until you're out of the storm.

I managed to get a Glaive Beam, a Chain Vulcan, AND an Automated Reloader...but I immediately ran into the absolute worst possible enemy (all missiles) and never got the chance to unleash the beast. I quit playing for a while after that. :/
