Re: Why can the AI jump without a pilot

I don't know how to edit the game files, but I know the game starts to get boring once you unlock everything. Try going for any achievements you're missing, or trying to beat the game at least once on normal with every ship, then if you still haven't unlocked more ships, look toward alternate soluti...

Re: 100% Game Completion?

If you're looking for a Platinum Trophy kind of deal, then no, there's nothing like that. You do get to say that that you beat all the challenges FTL has to offer though, so that's something. :P But yeah, it's more or less just a personal gratification thing. Do it because you want to, not because ...

Re: What are your favorite upgrades / augmentations? [SPOILE

I only ever really payed attention once, and the artillery beam recharge bar didn't seem to get any shorter when I bought a reloader. From what I can tell, it doesn't affect it (and I buy reloaders quite frequently). I guess the next step is to take a stopwatch and time it to be sure, but I'm too la...

Re: Aug for stealth ship proposal

The stealth ships are fine, for the most part. If anything, I'd say give them 1 shield power like the Zoltan ships. That would ease the burden of the early game "luck-fest" a little bit, as they wouldn't need to farm the whole 150 scrap (only 100 of it) and then find a shop with a shield. ...

Re: The Vortex[tips]

I sell just about everything and buy some real equipment.

The ship is absolutely useless when used for its intended role.

Re: Zoltans = worst crews?

I like them so long as I have at least 1 Engi and a couple of other races to fend off boarders. For boarding strategies they obviously kind of suck, but even then having 1 or 2 doesn't hurt.

Re: What are your favorite upgrades / augmentations? [SPOILE

Long-Range Sensors are the best value for their cost, and almost always worth picking up. I find them to be especially useful for boarding ships to make sure there's a ship at every beacon I jump to; but just being able to avoid hazards makes these highly valuable for any ship. Drone Recovery Arm is...

Re: Post your Highscore

Look carefully, 309 ships defeated. my standard run with score 4500-5000 usually end with 36-43 ships defeated. 309 is near 9 times of that.So the player just "wait"at the last beacon and keep slaughter rebel to push score up? No need to wait. You get one fuel for every rebel ship, so you...

Re: Wacky runs

Just had the craziest thing happen... *Unidentified Cruiser Spoilers Ahead* So, I was doing a Basilisk run for the Boarding Operation achievement (kill 4 dudes with a boarding drone) which I failed miserably at. 2 sectors from the last stand, I proceed to get my boarding crew wiped out by a FTL jump...

So about that Slug Interceptor.

That poor, unfortunate slug interceptor... who in their right mind would get into a ship with no access to their oxygen or engines, anyway?
