Re: Do you quit?

I see another problem in quiting: If you are trying hard to get one cruiser and starting over and over again the game feels more like a grind or something - the fun gets lost. So I would recommend you to make the best out of the situation ( e.g. I am trying to get a score as high as possible if I a...

Re: FTL part 2

Interesting ideas. We're talking about an innovative indie title so we should expect changes in a possible sequel. Of course 150 person crew wouldn't be manually controllable but instead in numbers, - man this room, pull back from that room etc. Also in order not to lose the bonds with characters, w...

Re: Complete Ships Guide [SPOILERS]

Hiya people, just registered just to note: You don't need a mantis crew member to get the mantis cruiser. Just did that. (What a relief.) Just Medbay and Transporter. The first blue option, which you only have with a mantis crew member is optional. That can also be seen from this source: http://ftl...

Do you quit?

I'm sure this question has been asked several hundred times but I'm new. Right now I'm going for the last ship unlock, which is Rock, and I know the fight can be a tough one, so I'm preparing myself. What I'd like to ask is, when you don't make a good start or when something terribly goes wrong mid-...

Re: Future fisrt person FTL?

I've seen many first person versions of IPs, but none were above the level of petty tries of milking money from players. Yes, I also think a AAA game can be made out of FTL but why first person? FTL is not an action game, nor does it sound promising to become a better shooter than the ones out there...

Re: How's crystal cruiser rare?

I played once more with engi cruiser and got to the secret sector once more. The only thing i did was to keep chasing civilian sectors after i got the statis pod.

Btw crystal B is very easy until flagship but i found it too hard with flagship phase 3.

How's crystal cruiser rare?

I've bought the game recently, done 16 runs by now. Fought the boss 5 times, beaten twice. All on easy. I've yet to unlock the Rock&Stealth cruisers. But Crystal cruiser was the 3rd ship I unlocked after Engi and Zoltan. I've encountered the damaged pot 6 times (twice in a single run), crash int...

Re: Games Similar To FTL

I've been working on a game that shares some FTL features. Rather than flying a ship you manage a space station, the oxygen control scheme was heavily influenced by FTL, the rest is a bit more like Prison Architect or Dungeon Keeper. It's called Space Station Alpha and there are more details on my ...
