Pre-igniter vs Auto-loader

I've been debating with myself over which augmentation is better. The Pre-igniter is great for weapons with long recharge times, but so is the reloader. The reloader also stacks, but that means it takes more slots (not that big of a deal, augments aren't that common.)

Which do you think is better?

Re: Ssslither across space – A Slug Cruiser A&B guide

I actually like the layout & airlocks placement of Slug A; it's the lack of crew that give rise to most of the problems you described IMO. Once you get 1 more crew (which is not really difficult to find), boarders become trivial to deal with. Fires in some certain room can be a pain though... B...

Ssslither across space – A Slug Cruiser A&B guide

The Slug Cruiser is a very fun and unique ship, revolving around tactics that leave enemy ships behind as empty husks. There are better written guides out there, but I’d like to write about my favorite ship. 1. Unlocking the ship For those of you without the ship, it takes a little cooperation from ...

Re: Dying after the first jump... on Easy XD

My worst loss was with the Mantis type B, my first jump was into an asteroid field; with an auto-assault that had two shields, a leto missile, dual lasers, and a beam drone. First leto hit the engine room, then the dual lasers opened a hole for the beam drone and an asteroid to smash me. It all went...

Re: Captain's Log - Rolling the Hard Six

Hope you hit it soon, going through the hidden sector is magical, especially seeing the enemy ships.

Also you might want to try using the rock cruiser Type B, probably the best crystal hunter of all.

Re: Sole Survivor Challenge...

Seems to me that drones would be a big help. Maybe its the Engi cruiser type B's time to shine.

also I love the videos.

Re: What is your favourite ship - and why?

My favorite ship would have to be the slug cruiser, both type A and type B. Their uniqueness gives me a feeling of "charm" while flying them. With the Slug A you can pick up extra scrap with very little risk, never having to worry about losing a crewmember due to bad cloak timing or a sola...

Re: Hiring crewmembers

I very very rarely buy crew. I rely on encounters and boarding or slave ships to get freebies. I do buy crew but it's very very rare. Just my thing i guess. I do not hire crew often, but I do sometimes if the crew member is someone that I would like to have on board my ship (such as a Zoltan). Huh,...

Hiring crewmembers

When I'm at a store, I usually consider purchasing crew for ships that start understaffed. If there are Zoltan and I have relatively inexperienced crewmembers manning stations I sometimes buy them and have them take a station. (Except weapons, I never put Zoltan on as gunners, can't stand losing wea...
