Re: Feature Request: Prevent AI from Jumping without Pilot

If you have a pilot alone on the helm fighting against 2 boarders, your ship's FTL charge still builds up, and your ship still gets a chance to evade enemy attacks (but you don't get the benefits of upgraded piloting skill). I know that with an upgraded helm, having no pilot lets you keep a portion ...

Re: So how come FTL tries to dictate play style?

I've had plenty of games where I've had multiple opportunities to get teleporters, but no crew but Zoltan and Engi. The last game I played handed me missile weapons for days, but I only got drones from encounters, no missiles. My first successful run in vanilla FTL (as the Engi A) started me with a ...

Re: Why do people enjoy this game?

If you're running into situations where 50% of the time or more, you're simply unable to progress and are in situations where you've already lost the game, you're suffering from one of 3 problems: 1. Not pausing often enough. 2. Not staying paused long enough. 3. Forgetting the primary mission. 1. S...

Re: FTL has a sense of humor

It's a cheap laugh, but "Holy crap! A weapon is just floating in space!" is actually a random encounter. Good times.

Re: Tips for the new guys

Day-one advice. PAUSE. Just... PAUSE. All the time. If there's anything happening, pause. If there isn't, pause and figure out why not. Pausing the game regularly and treating it like a turn-based game makes everything work easier. The more experience you get, the less critical pausing becomes, but ...

Re: What about more subsystems?

I'm not sure how you can plausibly explain a racial life support system that provides oxygen for one race without helping the others to breathe at the same time. Something I WOULD like to see is a support subsystem for your oxygen room which allows you to vent individual rooms directly without needi...

Re: Dreadnought scenario idea

Shimmy tubes : An inter-ship teleporter that allows friendly crew to instantly travel from one 1x1 pad to another. They can't be upgraded. I'm guessing this was meant to be "intra-ship" not "inter-", because that would be a crew teleporter used for boarding, and having it so it ...

Re: Final boss mind control just got updated?

I think the MCed pilot would count as having nobody in the room, so you'll have 0 evade chance if you haven't upgraded the system.

If you put someone else in there to fight him, they will give you part of your evade back.

Re: Advanced Edition: First impressions thread

don't see you backing up your own claims, 18 wins in a row my ass I'm one of the ones who saw the stream. The fact that there was a relatively well-watched (as mentioned, hundreds of viewers) stream of it happening IS backing up the claim. im playing the game daily on hard +advanced edition and i'v...
