Re: Question about the last boss

When you see the big warning that says "Power surge", it means the boss is overloading whatever things he has and sending an insane amounts of drones/heavy lasers your way, and it's true that stealth is the absolutely best way to deal with this. And I'm pretty sure the boss leaves when he'...

Re: Multiplayer Update ?

Sadly, the devs are pretty low on activity in the forum and especially this section, but they have said (twitter somewhere or something, I'll try to find it) that they haven't planned any multiplayer simply because it would be very hard to balance everything out and make it fair and real-time and pa...

Re: Just really bad luck

If it helps, losing on your very first jump shouldn't be that hard to redo, and you can simply restart with the same crew and ship without having lost that much effort.

Re: will have translations into other languages​​?

Sorry, but I really doubt there will ever be any translations with this game, but I guess it would be a possibility or a mod, maybe just a mod support where players can submit their own translations which you then add to your own game yourself. The reason there won't be many translations is because ...

Re: How random generating works?

If you want to test it, start a game, save it, back it up. then plot a course into sector 3, then go back to your backed up save, run that, and see if you can plot the exact same course and see if the events are the same or if they are different, and at what point they are different. I'd do the tes...

Re: How random generating works?

The game will generate the sector map just as you start a new game, but there's no way to know how each sectors beacon map is generated without looking at the so far closed source code (Or some creative test-playing). It could either be when you first travel to that sector or just everything generat...

Re: Speed of Pursuit

No, the rebel fleet advances through each sector as you jump to it, which means you should explore as much as you can in each sector, and the rebels will have to start over in their chase for you in the next sector, no matter how far you were from them or how many beacons with their advancement you ...

Re: I hate it.

Instead of thinking like that, think of it like this: You were only at your fifth jump, you probably hadn't gotten that far, you hadn't put that much effort into it yet, so then, so what if you died? You could just restart without having lost that much, or at least without having lost that much time...
