Re: How does a maxed Engine perform vs a maxed Shield system

Haven't posted here in awhile. In any case, I see nearly every reply in this topic comparing engine to shields as opposed to MAX engines vs MAX shields specifically. to answer the op who likely doesn't care cuz that was 20 years ago, as mentioned, it depends on your current ship. But generally, I ge...

Re: Unbalanced ships

I was traumatized by stealth ships a long time ago, and finally had a good run with one recently, but I still haven't unlocked stealth B which looks alot more fun to me. But yeah, just as an example, on one of my games with stealth A, the very first beacon I went to had an enemy with two beam drones...

Re: They've now made the game too hard

Actually I find the sector seeding downright infuriating at times lately. one time I entred a new sector with no scraps at all because I had just visited a store as my last trip in the previous sector to get something really good like a cloaking device. *enters next sector*. I could go one direction...

Re: Taking Control of an Enemy Vessel

When FTL Advanced was announced but not released the devs addressed this "wish" specifically. Stating it's common as @#%@#%, they get it all the time, and no they wont do it because doing so would require them having to rework the mechanics of the games far too much to make it worth the ef...

Re: Unbalanced ships

Stealth B actually looks like a good ship to me. But I can't get the darn unlock achievements (I got the one where you dodge like 50 shots in one cloak but not the other 2). I can't see how people can possibly have a hard time with a ship that starts off with a beam that can 1shot nearly everything ...

Rebel's flagship is correct cuz you killed all the crewmen on their ship but that laser turret guy right? =P

Re: They've now made the game too hard

Why do I get the feeling this is a case of "I never upgrade my engines very much and blame the game for killing me for neglecting a vital part of my ship". I can't be bothered to find every time I did this in my playthru but skip to 1:40 for this video for an exmaple: https://www.youtube.c...

Re: Unbalanced ships

I agree about Rock A being a drag because it flat out requires you to find some offensive replacements and FAST. Sometimes I finish an entire game without ever getting a new weapon (rare but it has happened a couple times...not with Rock A though fortunately). However I also agree about liking a ran...

I swear they made rank 2 and 3 doors less durable too.

Re: More control over drones?

Being able to tell them to target something specifically would make them op, because their fire rate blows the socks off every weapon but a fully charged vulcan. However maybe you fan say "try and shoot this", and they do like 3x more often than each other room (not all other rooms, each).
