Re: How is the score worked out?

I remember seeing something that said everything that was included, forget where though, possibly it was one of the loading screens. From what I recall, the score was influenced by scrap collected, damage dealt, beacons explored... Something like that. I couldn't tell you the actual math used though...

Re: [Bug] Transporters

Ah, dang, that bug is back? It was supposed to have been fixed a couple of versions ago. Make sure to post this on getsatisfaction.com/ftlgame.

You can disable hotkeys for those dialog boxes from the Options menu.

Re: Anyone unlocked all the ships *Contains Spoilers*

Anyone willing to post how to get the Zoltan Ship? It's actually pretty intuitive, you don't need any special crew or ship setup. Just take a look at the hint on the ship list screen, and you'll know when you've triggered the mission. Just keep diplomacy in mind, and you'll knock it out. It starts ...

Re: Nesasio...

I actually rather like the stealth ship. It just takes a little getting used to. You cannot play it the same way as other ships, at least not until you're able to get shielding. In order to make it past the first couple of sectors, you *need* to rely on the first strike capability granted by cloakin...

Re: [Suggestion] Alternate boss / Randomized boss

Yeah, it wasn't too bad in Desktop Dungeons since you could run into the boss pretty early on and see what you'd be facing. It would be more painful to find out you have no chance against the boss after investing 3 hours into the playthrough...

Re: Info on the next build!

Looking forward to the next build! I look forward to playing the new ships; it's fun seeing how each one forces you to play in a different style. And just wanted to put in one more voice for "Yay Randomness!" It keeps the game interesting; otherwise we'd all have the tendency to stick to t...

Re: Experience Gain

You also get combat xp for destroying enemy systems. I think it works the same way as repairing, where each bar knocked off the system gives you xp.

Re: New Build 0.12.7.9

Think I've run into a bug. If you save and quit while your cloaking device is recharging, when you reload it will be be locked and never recharge (and any energy you have sunk into it is lost). Ouch, painful bug. You should post that on http://getsatisfaction.com/ftlgame, that's where they look fir...
