Re: List of things people don't like [From Reddit thread]

Once a game ends up in the hands of the PAYING public then I think we have to agree those PAYING public do have the right to say they would like changes made to the game, but only if those changes would really enhance the game. For me I would like to see FTL2 feature a mode where you can switch off ...

Re: Don't understand why some people don't like FTL's gamepl

That´s true so far. But what about to address a larger group of potential players to make the art of game play more customizable, eg. with more different difficulties. One thing is the art of game play, the other side is the economical view, to ensure a large circle of customers. What were people e...

Re: Don't understand why some people don't like FTL's gamepl

I think the main issue is that people are not playing the game the right way. They are still playing it like a traditional game where you can save at any point and if things go wrong you can then load up the save game and try again. You have to think outside of the box with this game. When things go...

Re: How "save game" works here?

Well, although I've lost a crewman twice so far to the Spiders, on the third time I had that encounter I had a message come up that my crew helped beat off the spiders and got a reward. I think it all depends how many crew you have (I had five crew when I beat off the spiders, I only had three crew ...

Re: Any plans for a sandbox mode?

I too would like to see the game expand into one where you can roam the galaxy and explore everything there is to explore, visit shops and bars on planets to buy upgrades and recruit new crew members, to have the option to become a space pirate or explorer or trader etc. I think it would be fantasti...

Re: Not sure if this has been discussed before...

It just seems very odd to me to create a drone to fly out from the ship and then to protect it from incoming missile or beam weapon fire when a turret based beam weapon system on the ship could do exactly the same job, and it would have meant much less coding which I suspect the drones have done (yo...

Re: Not sure if this has been discussed before...

I'll try and make it a bit clearer. There should be room in the game for a beam weapon system that is too short ranged and low powered to affect ships but which could provide defence against missiles and even possibly drones. Perhaps they could start with say only a 50% of hitting the target (the ta...

Re: Not sure if this has been discussed before...

Thanks for clearing up my confusion about drones, it appears the articles I read were very out of date. However, this does not explain the absence of that stalwart of SF stories, games and films, the point defence anti-missile beam weapon systems. We have such systems now with high rate chain/gatlin...

Not sure if this has been discussed before...

I'm an avid SF gamer buff and have been looking for a game like this for years. Please accept my apologies if this has been brought up before, but from what I have seen in various other places the game has drone bays that have drones that shoot down missiles, but I would have expected something alon...
