Re: [Dumbass] Beamed an away party to an unmanned ship...

I'll do you one better pushing jump without beaming crew back after a fight :shock: I once had to do this intentionally in an asteroid field where I was about to be blown to bits. I felt like an ass, but I didn't think I would survive trying to get my teleporter system repaired. no shield? Pretty s...

Re: Boarding Drone Incredibly Dissapointing.

It may be disappointing to use, but the bloody things are absolutely dire when the enemy has them.. and far too common for my tastes. Generally, if I get hit with a boarding drone, I focus all of my fire on the enemy ship's drone control power and once that's down, I move in to take out the drone. ...

Re: Suggestion:Store Options

This is more of a balance issue than an issue with having equipment that you can't use. If players end up with too much scrap, the game becomes too easy.

That said, I actually thought it would be kind of neat if there was a race that could turn items into scrap.

Re: Run Fails

In the tutorial, I clicked the "Open All Doors" button (this was when it still opened all of the doors on the first click). Didn't realize what was happening until it was too late. Crew died and I got a message saying that I wasn't supposed to be able to lose in the tutorial. Most of my ac...

Re: Charging weapons while enemy is cloaked

Too bad, you just got hit with all the missiles. You now have no shield, no engines, no weapons, and no way to fight back since the bastard is cloaked. Good luck. Well shit, if the situation is that dire, him having cloak isn't going to make much of a difference. Sometimes the game will fuck you ov...

This is when I usually put more power to engines and try to jump out.

Re: More money=Later release date

This recent uptake in Kickstarter has convinced me that most people do not understand the economics of video game development.

Re: Where did you hear about FTL?

RockPaperShotgun had the article that drew me in. In fact, here it is: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/02/28/beaming-ftl-is-the-star-trek-game-ive-always-wanted/ Same here. After reading that, seeing the response on Kickstarter probably got me even more interested. On the point of marketing, t...

Re: Early purchase for those that missed Kickstart?

There will certainly be a way to pre-order the game as we get closer to release; if only through Steam's normal method of pre-order sales. However, I can't guarantee we'll take your money to let you into the beta. We had initially planned for it to be restricted to the kickstarter backers, so I'm n...
