Boarding vs Destroying?

Right now Boarding simply gives more benefits compared to destroying the enemy ship. Since Boarding = more scrap = better chance to win the game, it is in your best interest to board every boardable enemies in the game. Sure you will need a Teleporter and it will be slower than shooting down the ene...

Zoltans = worst crews?

Whenever I get a Zoltan crewmember, I always feel they're pretty useless all around. Oh sure they power up your system, 2 Zoltans make sure you always have at least 1 layer of Shield. But that's the point, they're practically only good for sitting around the ship; They make poor fighters (even an En...

Re: Capital ship mod?

Pity... Still, with the game's success, who knows, maybe the developer will release expansion packs / add-ons?

Re: I read that this game is moddable?

Well now I feel ship-I mean, sheepish... Would you mind deleting this thread please? I've already posted similar question in the mod forum now.

Capital ship mod?

Well, posted this question in the Discussion subforum, which apparently was the wrong place... Figured I would repost this here. Anyway, has there been any ongoing mod that gives us a big ship, a capital ship-level instead of a fighter level? You'll be heavily armored and armed (10+ shields, 8+ weap...

I read that this game is moddable?

At least according to Tvtropes; they say that the source files are simple enough to modify, and some modders have modified ship layouts and added new weapons. Point is, if that is true, what do you think of a mod where our ship is a battleship instead of just a single, small ship? Of course, that me...

Re: How do you beat the Rebel Flagship?

Thanks for the replies. So in short, bombs / missiles are an absolute necessity in this fight, due to the shields. I'll try fighting the Rebel Flagship using less powerful ships again later (just beat it on Normal with the Crystal Cruiser type B; a boarding party composed of 3 Crystals and 1 Mantis ...

How do you beat the Rebel Flagship?

And by that, I really mean 'other ways to beat the Rebel Flagship'. I just beat the Rebel Flagship on Easy using the Crystal Cruiser type A, by having 2 of my Crystal crews board and kill the ship's crew one by one. Seriously, I would say the Crystals are the best boarders in the game, because Lockd...
