Re: Allow playe to sell fuel, missiles and drone parts in stores

Still, selling 30 missiles for even 1 scrap each would net you 30 scrap. That's a lot. No it isn't. It can make a big difference if you're desperate for 30 more scrap, but most of the time it won't make or break the game. I think missiles should cost 4 scrap to buy and you should be able to sell th...

That's only because missiles are so expensive. They should be cheaper.

Re: Most useful crew type?

I think how useful they are depends on the station. Here, I'll rank best to worst per station: Piloting: 1.) Engi - fast to repair it 2.) Rockman - sturdy, less likely to have to leave 3.) Lanius - prevents boarders from taking over the station 4.) Slug - it's nice to have 1 slug, and it's okay for ...

Re: The role of missiles

I think the biggest problem with missiles is that they're too expensive. They're a very powerful weapon system, but if you actually are relying on them enough to want to buy them from the store, suddenly their cost becomes not really worth it. I noticed that when playing with the Rock Cruiser A (Bul...

Re: Interceptors and Battleships - evasion and power bars

Hmm, these are some interesting suggestions, but: These changes would stray way-too far away from the original game; the game has already been finished, and changing it now would negatively impact the remaining community. For instance, battleships having 4 augmentation slots, 6 cargo slots, and 11 ...

Re: Allow playe to sell fuel, missiles and drone parts in stores

I agree, I think this should have been done even in the original. I would also change the price of missiles from 6 scrap to just 4 scrap. Their high price means that it's rarely worth purchasing them. If you rely on missiles and you aren't getting enough as finds, then you're pretty much screwed any...

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.

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...
