Re: How to use defence drones?

I would say it was ca combination of both. One of the simple facts of FLT seems to be that defense drones are magnets for lasers (and higher difficulties seems to increase this). That said, I generally get decent mileage out of my Defense Drones (best guess, one in three fights it will get blown up ...

Re: Am I the Only Person that Loves the Fregatidae?

I think it gets so much hate because what the hell is a Flak Gun doing on a boarding cruiser? Sure it's meant to show off that artillery systems can be different, but the Flak is just so out of place for me... The ship gets a little bit better though if you find another non-Zoltan crew. Then you ca...

First 30 seconds: Missile to the Piloting, Laser to the O2 and a fire in the Medbay. The boarding drone I fired l...

Re: Living off the land achievement.

I also found that when going for this achievement, accepting surrender when they offer 3+ fuel helped a lot. Obviously you get a lot less scrap, but since you aren't using stores....

Re: Can't manage The Osprey

I must be backwards, since the Osprey is one of the only ships I can consistently win with (the other being the Red tail, and I am getting better with Basilisk). Granted, I'm still fairly new to this since I only got it a month or two ago on a GOG sale, and I still haven't unlocked Rock or Crystal s...

Re: What I want to see in AE

4. Small scrap rewards for killing boarders? Would make those events worth something besides annoying. I asked for just this thing and was given an answer that satisfied me: There's no easy programmatic way - in the current system - to determine if the boarders are part of an event or just boarded ...

Re: Some discussion on balance changes

Just to throw an idea out there, what if the Teleporter level dictated the number of pads available? Level 1 - 20 Seconds, only 1 pad Level 2 - 15 Seconds, 2 Pads (ships with 2 pad rooms can't go higher than this) Level 3 - 10 Seconds, 3 Pads Level 4 - 10 Seconds, 4 Pads With or without the shield P...

Re: FTL: Advanced Edition - Ship Unlock Poll

Hello Everyone, new to the game and the forum. I admit that I have not read all pages of this topic, but on the OP I noticed that the suggestions was for more casual players. Sorry if this has been mentioned before, or if input is already moot (but the poll was still open, so I thought input was sti...
