Which ship is the most blue-option friendly one?

Disregarding that it's impossible to know which events are going to show up, which ship do you think has the higher default capabilities for blue text options? Considering standard equipment and, say, 75 scraps worth of buys\upgrades.

Re: Do we know whether or not there's going to be added cont

If some uber entity of the forum supervised a mega merge of the best mods out there and called it a Community DLC for FTL, I would jump on it asap. As it is now, I'm just wary of buggy custom ships and unbalanced total converrsions.

Re: Stealth Cruiser fun times.

I have just completed my first Stealth run on normal and it sounds like we did similarly. In mine I could only get enough scrap for the shield by Sector 3, and had to wait until Sector 6 for different weapons. It turned really heroic, as I browsed shop upon shop with 150+ scrap and could find no wea...

Suggestion: self-destruction button

It is a staple of starships in soft scifi: when your cargo is in peril from alien invasion, when your ship has been boarded by an evil empire, when you have to bluff your way from a tight spot... you push the big red button marked "self destruction", then input your own personal Captain's ...
