Re: [Spoiler] FTL Editor v25 - Unlock ships, Edit SavedGames

I wish I had discovered this handy tool earlier. I reached sector 8 in every ship before I got advanced edition but the previous runs didn't count toward unlocking type C ships, so I've been painfully slogging through ships I've already beat the game with, just trying to access the new content.

Re: Where do I get repairs (other than shops)?

Oh it's there, I didn't see it before. But I also didn't know I'd need it until it was too late. Other forums save draft automatically. But I guess on a long post I can click the button.

Re: Where do I get repairs (other than shops)?

I'm really glad Google Chrome stores the text that was entered before posting. I spend a lot of time writing up that post and when I tried to post it, the website wouldn't respond. I copied the text but the website was down for so long that by the time it was back up I had already forgotten about th...

Where do I get repairs (other than shops)?

I want to compile a list of all the ways to get repairs, upgrades, weapons/drones, crew, etc. for completing achievements such as 'On a Wing and a Prayer', 'I don't need no stinkin' upgrades!', or 'Living off the Land', or for personal challenges. The things should be anything you can get from a sto...

Re: Stealth B (The Glass Cannon) on hard, Love this ship

Great run! You might have done better if you'd have saved some of your old weapons after you got replacements. I always save an extra weapon if I have a good one in case I don't like my new weapon setup.

AI defense drone shoots down 100% of single missiles, hacking drones, or boarding drones and hits both pegasus shots about a third of the time. YOUR defense drone fails to get a lone missile almost 20% of the time and fails to shoot down a boarding drone or hacking drone more like 40% of the time. ...

Re: FTL Logic

ha, true!

FTL Logic should focus more on gameplay than real-life realism then. FTL has tons of points (especially in the original) where things don't make any sense even in-game. Like engi being just as good as mantis for killing alien spiders.

Several ways to beat the Flagship + Lanius challenge playthrough

A lot of people feel there's only a handful of ways to beat the flagship. The most popular method is to kill the crew except for the guy at the laser auxiliary weapon. But there are several good ways to beat the flagship, and they work best if you start planning ahead for them very early into your g...
