Re: Enemy ship flees with my mantises on board

It's a shame that fighting for the controls of a ship is useless. You manage to barricade yourself inside the bridge, but then the enemy waltzes in, uses one arm to kunfu your guys while his other arm is configuring an FTL jump. :roll:

Re: [MOD] Recalibrating Protocols

A general question to everyone. Would you rather see new weapons or new events? New weapons would be similar to what you already see in the game. It would be just mostly alternate versions or overpowered versions of existing weapons (similar to how other weapon mods do it). New events would be more ...

Re: Let's Brainstorm some Events/Scenarios

Brainstorm events? Easy. Simply copy every Star Trek episode, make some adjustments to make it work ingame.

Re: Unlocking new ships is way too difficult

The problem is that each ships requires a whole bunch of pieces to fall into place, and there's too many pieces. Like get X component and upgrade it to level X, while having a crewmember of a specific race, and you have to be in a specific system and be lucky enough to find a specific event, and the...

Re: [MOD] Recalibrating Protocols

Was it your intention for crew to be instagibbed by nearly every missile in the game? I mind it only sometimes in that it can be vexing (like most everything else). But it's a little imba to have 3 people in your med bay get hit by a missile and die instantly. There should only be one missile capab...

Re: [MOD] Recalibrating Protocols

Some odd changes here. A 10% chance of fire is not a trivial amount; Ion weaponry should not have any chance of starting a fire. A bit of an odd change on the beam weapons making them require less power and have higher cooldowns - Glaive+Igniter is ridiculously strong, and it's even stronger here. ...

Re: [MOD] Recalibrating Protocols

I just released a hotfix that everyone should download. See the first page for the link. One of the missile launchers was a bit OP, which made the game very hard past the mid game. It basically DESTROYED half your shields with each hit, that's not what I intended for that missile launcher. It happen...

Re: [MODDING] choice hidden="true"

I added it to the tutorial text to see if there are any noticable differences, but there aren't. It must be something technical that goes on in the background. Not sure what.

Re: Puzzled about O2

There should be an easily noticable warning coming up when no Oxygen is being produced, because this is a very big deal that can easily kill you. Like some sort of alarm sound.

Re: [MOD] Recalibrating Protocols

Alright guys, version 1.1 is out. Check the first post for the link. It brings many new changes. Some events will have bigger consequences for informing the fleet of your location. There's also some balancing tweaks. But the biggest change is that missiles have been completely reworked. Missiles hav...
