Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

Did you know? That you can depower a defense drone without wasting it? Once the enemy fires a missile at you, turn it back on for no cost in supplies, then depower again to use the extra energy somewhere else. Same thing works with attack drones, although you probably want them online all the time....

Re: Does the game actively avoid giving your ship what it ne

My favorite run was a Slug A run where the only weapon I got was a Burst Laser 1. I was out of bombs by that point too. It was a ridiculous fight, where I had to Board, beat a crew to the point where they would retreat to the med-bay, the quickly knock down the ship's shields and anti-bio beam the c...

Re: Most useful crew type?

The issue with slugs is that their in combat abilities are fairly useless outside of a nebula, as lv 2 sensors do everything they do, only better. Also, whereas every other non-human race have functions that each instance of that race can use, you never really want more than one slug.

This is actually wrong. If your entire crew is on the other ship and your teleporter breaks, they will take a shuttle back after they kill all the enemy crew.

Re: The stealth ship

I finally beat normal with Stealth B recently. The first upgrade I got was adding one weapon upgrade. This allows for you to survive errant shots to your weapons room, which makes everything a lot more stable.

Re: Wait- what exactly is the downside of the Crystal Ship?

Crystals only seem fast because you probably spent far too many runs with a rock ship to unlock the ship. Rocks may as well not move at all compared to the regular races.

Re: Grognak's Mod Manager v1.4.1 (Updated Nov 9 2012!)

I have the same issues as John Luc, with the white box, and the same system specs. Is it possible to get the DRM-free version without buying the game again if you got it on steam?

Re: Is there ever really a reason not to board?

I disagree completely. You just fire the anti-bio beam at the spots at the enemies your crew isn't fighting. Just like with normal weapons. When you hit their crew, they have less health to fight off your boarders. That's practically the premise of Slug A.[/quote] This. I beat the boss with Slug A w...

Re: How to get the Burn-Enemy Achievement?

I've seen enemy rock crew run from a burning room too. Although they like running off to fix shields more than fighting anyway.
