My heroic win with the Zoltan A cruiser

Today I finished my run with the Zoltan A ship and defeated the Rebel flagship. This was my most satisfying game yet, since a lot of strategy was involved. I wasn't confident that my ship was upgraded enough, so I played a risky game and jumped to a number of beacons to attack enemy ships for scrap,...

Re: The Vortex[tips]

In my humble opinion, this ship would be better with a couple of changes: - boarders cannot teleport directly into the helm room. - you get to pick where the anti-personnel spawns, OR it spawns in the room next to the helm room This way you could employ a strategy like the following: - open all airl...

Re: Other games with harsh difficulty

If you are into RPG's (with graphics similar to the 1st Zelda), I recommend Laxius Power I, II and III. Sometimes it's a bit childish, but it's great fun... and the battles at time are really tough, to the point where you won't win if you don't have the proper equipment&leveling up&strategy....

Re: Suggestions

For the ground missions, similar mechanics could be used than for the ship's fight. You get a bird's eye view of the planet's surface with your team represented by green dots. Every team member has one or more energy bars (comparable to the amount of HP?). Your team has a shield around them, just li...

Is it even possible for boarders to get sucked into space?

When reading some posts in this forum, I seem to remember people saying that there is a chance for boarders to get sucked into space when they are in a room next to an open airlock.

However, in all my plays, I have never ever seen this happen.

Is this feature actually there, or am I mistaken?

Re: Walkover with the Redtail

FTL loves me, FTL loves me not, FTL loves me, FTL loves me not, FTL loves me... True, but it seems to hate me more than it loves me... Although it is true that as I am gaining more and more experience in the game, I have more success in my play-throughs. Even though I'm still bad at certain things,...

Re: Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption, from the Quest for Glory te

Yeah, we get to play another Quest For Glory-like game.

And it's even coming for Linux! I use Ubuntu 12.10 at home, so that is double the fun :D

Walkover with the Redtail

I had a couple of playthroughs (all on Easy) with the Redtail in which I was on a roll, but then got unlucky or careless in sectors 6, 7 or 8 and in a few cases I did not have the proper equipment against the flagship. I even had one were I had a winning lay-out, but I jumped to the flagship and did...
