Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.281b/Inf 1.28/EL 1.28

which more than once forced me to accept a surrender from a ship I had wanted to kill, or just lost it entirely) Is it that bad? Surrender often gives you way more fuel and missiles... I was talking about accepting surrenders from fleeing defence drone-equipped ships while trying to get Defence Dro...

Re: My Federation A strategy

The lesson we can take away from this: Ignoring good weapons you find in stores is never a good idea in almost any ship. Whilst it certainly is possible to kill the flagship by roundabout routes, at the end of the day what you really want by the time you face the thing is a straight up, uncomplicate...

Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.281b/Inf 1.28/EL 1.28

I must admit that I haven't tried CE Infinite yet, so I can't really contribute to Suu and Styles' conversation. However, I will say that the importance of the second shield bubble (already vital in vanilla) definitely went up a lot in CE due to things like Pernach and the proliferation of one power...

Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.281/Inf 1.28/EL 1.28

I actually disagree that using the exploit is necessary (Hell, I didn't even know it existed until you brought it up just now). Sure, it would be nice if the Stealth B could one-shot the entire ship like in vanilla, but having it be able to one-shot the weapons room (something, you'll remember, the ...

Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.28d/Inf 1.28/EL 1.28

Is the Rock A supposed to be this bad? Especially the CE edition? https://youtu.be/hb86_sUYp3k Or did Katatonik just not have any luck getting decent weapons? Would it be overpowered to give the Bulwark an Explosive Replicator at the start rather than an ammo manufacturer? The CE Rock A is actually...

Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.28d/Inf 1.28/EL 1.28

Huh. So seeing as I'd started to talk on the forum recently, I decided I should play some more CE (I'd mostly been playing Stations Job lately and Strange New Galaxy before that) since I've been discussing it here. I started completely new file of CE on my new laptop so I'd have to unlock everything...

Re: [MOD][WIP] Stations Job 0.f

Except, Sleeper, that I always go back to the hanger and have never used the "restart" button... As for the asteroid base, I'll check out what you've done with it and report back. EDIT: OK, so I had a look at it and you definitely need to scrap the idea of the ASB being a drone. When I fir...

Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.28d/Inf 1.28/EL 1.28

Switching the Nagi to a Maul (first shot wrecks the weapons room so you're not being continuously pummelled by return fire while charging up for your second shot) or pairing up the Nagi with a 1 power missile (missile takes out the shields so the Nagi can one-shot sector 1 and 2 enemies like the Van...

Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.28d/Inf 1.28/EL 1.28

Considering the Stealth B isn't among the ships I haven't won CE with (again, those are the Zoltan B, Engie, B, and Rock A), I think accusing me of being entitled is rather churlish. I made it very clear that my reasons for feeling the ship needs to be changed have nothing to do with an inability of...

Re: FTL Captain's Edition 1.28d/Inf 1.28/EL 1.28

I think its fine. Provided you have Endless Loot installed and get some better guns. At least at the end the Naginata survives because it's the only useful thing. But when it takes about 3-4 hits to destroy a Zoltan ship... Also, once 2-layer ships started appearing, I had to skip a lot of combat u...
