Re: Advanced Players: How are you beating normal?

I agree about the cockpit/engine thing. Sure at earlier fights where they have small evasion I'll go for weapons first, but the more I've played the game (and watched videos of others playing it), the more I see cases where getting important shots evaded ends up dragging the fight on for so long tha...

Re: The Basilisk: Putting the MAN in MANTIS

Any tips on how to deal with a ship with a medbay when you don't have any weapons yet? That was the part I was most interested in but you meantion using lasers/beams/bombs to take out the medbay. If you don't have any weapons yet, is a ship with a medbay = run away like a Zoltan ship? I've tried to ...

Re: Complete Ships Guide [SPOILERS]

you do not need a mantis at all to unlock the mantis ship Yes you do, you have to hail the ship, and only a matis crew can do it. No you don't, I unlocked it without a mantis. If you kill all the crew like normal you still get the blue options and can unlock the ship. The hailing the ship as a mant...

Re: Boarding Defense - A Commander's Manual

I find it also very helpful to know how to do the "crew shuffle" when fighting the boarders, as explained here:

Re: Do augment stack?

Would definitely be nice to know if they stacked additively or multiplicatively though. Like, are 2 re-loaders a total of 30% (15+15) or 32.25% (x1.15 x 1.15)? And as someone earlier asked, does it add or multiply bonuses from crew? Speaking of, do the crew bonus from engine+pilot add or multiply? I...

Re: Attn: Matthew - how to fix chopped off images in this fo

That may help with images that are part of attachments but most I've seen are just externally stored images being linked to in the post, so don't use the attachbox. That's what the .postbody img tag should help with. EDIT: To demonstrate, here's a chopped off image from another post on this board: h...

Re: Complete Ships Guide [SPOILERS]

One thing that could really increase the usefulness of the OP is elements not shown such as how many drones the ship CAN have active at once when it gets the system installed (not all ships get the same). An advantage of the Engi cruiser is the fact that it can have 3 drones at once, but most ships ...

Re: Attn: Matthew - how to fix chopped off images in this fo

Hmm, nope, assuming you uploaded it to the correct theme's folder, it really ought to be working at this point. I can see by inspecting the page via chrome that its pulling an img tag from a css that does not include the width=100% line, so it seems like its just ignoring the changes. No idea why (a...

Re: Attn: Matthew - how to fix chopped off images in this fo

Okay I installed IDLaunch_Black on my board (it appears all of the IDLaunch themes use the same css setup so this should work even if you didn't use that specific one - but if you used a different IDLaunch one let me know and I'll double-check it to not waste your time). If you are worried about it ...
