Re: Stores.

Devs have already discussed this many times during the beta. There are a myriad of reasons why they don't want to add this as an option.

Re: BEAM balance discussion

He's bringing up a valid point- Because not all beams pierce shields, it makes them much less viable as a stand-alone tactic. Also, even when they do pierce shields, unless the ship is particularly big, if it has 3+ points of shield you will be doing relatively little damage for the charge time. He'...

Re: Just bought this game yesterday and have yet to beat it.

You do insta-win if it's the last stage, but judging from your post it sounds like you only beat the first stage of the boss.

Re: inert robot kills crew (indirectly)

Dungeons of Dredmor is great, but I never felt the kind of urgency or fear of death I feel with nethack, FTL, or even Hack, Slash, Loot. DoD is just too forgiving. Lots of food. Lots of OP spells. I only think I ever die now if I'm facing 20+ enemies, provided I'm actually clearing all of the levels...

Re: Mod/Steam Workshop Support?

Unfortunately, there's a big difference between replacing an art asset and adding a new one; this is obviously the mantis cruiser. Did you just replace the ship's art and layout information, or did you actually add this as being selectable IN ADDITION to the mantis cruiser, using the cruiser as a te...

Re: Adding "Gameplay" to Non-Combat States

To further give an example of why your analogy is flawed- Take the files, and call them 'asteroids', and call the copying process 'mining'. Then, have the new files be called 'ore'. All you did was change labels, and now look- it's a mechanic that tons of games already employ AS GAMEPLAY. Like I sai...

Re: Adding "Gameplay" to Non-Combat States

I specifically started this thread because the other was operating under the that this "medbay shuffle" as you call it is not gameplay, which I disagree with. So, rather than belabor the point further there, I started this thread for people who DO think it's gameplay, by merit of the fact ...

I don't know- I would love that added level of complexity.

Adding "Gameplay" to Non-Combat States

So, there's the whole thread which discusses 'removing'/'allowing for the removal of' downtime after battles, by making it so that those monotonous tasks can be handled by the game. Why, I wonder, do people ask for "less" gameplay, if it's gameplay they dislike? Why not ask for "more&...

Re: Space Sickness and Crew Injuries

While i would like to see crew getting sucked out and airlock they (with execption of the slugs) may be wearing magnetic boots. But if the boots stay stationary and unmoveable and your body gets sucked violently in some direction, unless you have some kind of braces it could easily snap your legs, ...
