Re: Clash of the Titans not unlocking - AE

BTW, I was ultimately able to satisfy the conditions of this achievement on Hard/Advanced mode, on the latest version, on an iPad. But it took me ~100 runs! And because I refuse to abandon games (because I like keeping my win ratio as high as possible), this took me a very, very long time (and raise...

uploaded new challenge video: no reactor upgrades (just 2 reactor!)

Finally finished this challenge which was gnawing at me: win with just 2 reactor power -- the minimum you can have out of any stock ship. Played on the hardest settings in a single session so you can see I didn't save the game or cheat permadeath in any way. Hat tip to user Psuemno on YouTube who fi...

FTL now hanging on OS X

I've played FTL for years now, through many different upgrades and incarnations of OS X, and it has always been rock solid stable. Lately, over the past 2 weeks, I've seen it hang/crash twice. I am always current on the latest versions from Apple, which means the first crash was under Yosemite and t...

new FTL challenge video

Finally! Posted my first new challenge video in about a year: https://youtu.be/8Qyj_q7CLBg The SS Lone Wolf: 1 crew member + no voluntary healing of any kind. No use of medbay, cloning bay, or healing bombs. Made sure I didn't heal from an unpowered cloning bay + FTL jump, made sure I didn't auto-cl...

clash of the titans, on hard/advanced

As I'd mentioned in an earlier post, getting the Crystal ship achievement "Clash of the Titans" on Hard mode with Advanced content enabled was extremely difficult and painful. I do not recommend it for the faint of heart. I was ultimately able to do it, but it literally took me ~100 runs t...

results of an experiment -- my scoreboard

When AE came out, I was curious how long it would take (in terms of time + runs) to: * Start from scratch * Play exclusively on iPad * Play exclusively on Hard mode with Advanced content enabled * Win with every ship * Complete all achievements Here are the screenshots of my leaderboards, for refere...

victory with most unused scrap?

I've finally finally finally completed all the achievements on Hard/Advanced mode (see separate post). So just for fun, I thought I'd see how much spare scrap I could muster in a single victorious game. I decided to switch to Easy mode with advanced content disabled, to try to truly max out the scra...

Re: 2 problems targeting with bombs on ipad

If you haven't already, please bump it on getsatisfaction.com/ftlgame, as I believe that will help get it prioritized.

Re: Clash of the Titans not unlocking - AE

I actually have never played AE with advanced content disabled. I assumed that would turn off all the new-for-AE features including Abandoned sectors, Rebel Stronghold sectors, Lanius ships, extra augments, etc. etc., and play like it used to play under v.1.03.3. IF that's the case, then killing 15 ...
