Re: Feature Request: show enemy weapon names

I know there are a few mods where each weapon gets a more unique model, but having an optional "view weapon names on hover" setting would be a cool feature.

Re: Anti Ship Battery in sector 2 on easy?!

Obliviondoll - Clearly you aren't trying to fight elite cruisers on sector 1 or 2 with 1 engine power or you'd say otherwise. If I was consistently getting even remotely close to the end of sector 1 with less than 3 engine power, I'd be realising that engines are OP the first time I did otherwise. ...

Re: Anti Ship Battery in sector 2 on easy?!

The fight was already unfair. But at least you were able to get out of it with non critical damage, however with enough damage to set you back quite a bit. Now it's a case of, if you get caught, you either lost or take critical damage so the next sector is going to be spelled as GG. If it was actua...

Re: Anti Ship Battery in sector 2 on easy?!

What I am saying is that people already have a very good reason to run the hell away from the fleet in the first place without the ASB. The ASB just makes the fight completly unbalanced and if you don't have the engines upgraded yet (because it's still early in the game) then it's a game over scree...

Re: FEATURE REQUEST: "Wait" available on all jumps

How about a "wait" option any time you have 3 or less (maybe 5 or less) fuel?

There aren't many situations other than low fuel where waiting is a viable strategy or even a good idea, but this would be one.

Re: Has hacking made the Flagship too RNG?

The "issue" with hacking is that because it functionally disables a system early in the fight, most counters rely heavily on having multiple options available, and early in the game, that's not something you can reasonably expect. How do you deal with any system in the early sectors? You ...

Re: Anti Ship Battery in sector 2 on easy?!

As an FYI, nebula systems don't have ASB.. though they seem to sometimes develop Ion Storms when they didn't previously have it. I'm not sure exactly why. So, rest assured if the exit (and any path back you want) is all nebula, then feel free to test the elites that way without the ASB. Why? Maybe ...

Re: Has hacking made the Flagship too RNG?

All that said, I can appreciate that because of the nature of hacking and the fact that it almost requires you to already have redundant systems to counter it effectively, it would be worthwhile to consider an alternative counter which isn't as reliant on how your ship is built, if only because run...

Best answer you're going to get.

Modding the game is how you unlock extras without earning them, and give yourself ships which are basically cheating to use.

Re: Your "I'm too stupid to play this game" moments.

It's possible to do it by hitting pause at the right time, but it's easier to alt-tab out with the auto-pause on.
