Re: When enemy uses FTL target helm or engine?

I usually target the helm if they try to flee. I target the engine if I want to eliminate their chances at evasion.

Re: Difference between evasion and dodging

There is no difference between "evasion" and "dodging"; it's an oversight on the developer's half as far as I can tell and they should change everything that says "dodging" to "evasion" because it is indeed confusing to new players.

Re: Boarding the Flagship - crew lost

Oh it jumps out when you're about to defeat it? That's stupid.

Re: I don't get it

There's room for strategy but there is indeed a lot of randomness. Rogue was just as frustrating and fun at the same time.

Re: plz let us sell our missiles, drone parts, fuel

I don't like being stocked with too many missiles or drones when I don't use 'm but I think being able to sell them off would make the game far too easy as you'd get excess scrap .. On the other hand, it might be darn handy when you haven't been able to find any scrap or just keep losing fights. Per...

Re: Fighting off boarders

One of the first upgrades I get is the reinforced doors (the 20 scrap one) which severely delays the enemy and allows you to heal up as you make tactical retreats from room to room. Some weapons also allow you to teleport bombs into rooms that invaders currently are, but they're rather risky as you'...

Has always paid off for me, leading me to a cache twice now.

I didn't read the spoiler so I don't know what the other option does.

Re: How about a challenge!

I got the pacifism run achievement with the Engi ship, I believe. I set out on receiving three but I noticed that if I wanted to make it at all, I was going to have to go with just one of 'm.

I think trying to get too many achievements in one go seriously reduces your chances at getting any of them.

Re: Update v1.0 & v1.01 - Very few changes

I think a sandbox turns the game into something it isn't. I'd rather have them focus on adding some more variety, fixing some balancing issues and updating the HUD. I also constantly have to remind myself that this is a rogue-like and not a simulator. If someone were to release this game as a simula...

Re: Game overly pixelated

There used to befan-made ATI Catalyst drivers available for download. I would sometimes use them when the last released drivers by ATI itself were no good. I think that they might be called "Omegadrivers" but I am not sure if those are the ones I used to use as it's been many years ago. Ch...
