Re: The stealth ship

It's not necessarily the damage that sucks (though it's extremely rare to get more than 3 damage out of it) but the fact that it's so short you aren't going to be hitting more than 2 systems with it in most cases. The kit the Stealth A comes with isn't good past the first sector either because it ca...

Re: Is it just me?

It has plenty of power. Put your Zoltan on your engines and disable your medbay.

Re: Post your Highscore

For some reason 2 of my highest scores are with the Noether (Zoltan B) that I didn't even complete the game with. I failed both runs near the end due to trying to get the 29 power achievement.

So I guess killing the boss doesn't give all that many points.

5267 with the Red-Tail is my #1

Re: The stealth ship

Stealth ships require luck in the first sector, but if you can make it to the second you should have enough for your shield then you're good to go. I just got around to beating the game on normal with both stealth ships today. The stealth A just needs a better weapon (than the mini-beam, which sucks...

Re: can't even get past sector 4, let alone unlock a ship?

I regretted playing on Easy, though I did unlock a couple of ships that way. The thing is, the game is pretty easy with the Kestrel B which is already simple to unlock. Once you get to sector 5 you get another awesome ship. Of course, the game is never really "easy" on normal, but these sh...

Re: Potential ways to be able to incorporate multiplayer pla

There are some people who think every game in the universe would be better with mutiplayer. That really doesn't apply to roguelikes. They're made to be player vs RNG and giving the player too much choice essentially just breaks the game.

Re: Best Strategy To Beat Boss(Help!)

No matter which ship you use, try to max engines and have level 3 shields. Prioritize engines over shields. That is the most important thing, IMO.

What are the best upgrades to ensure the most blue options?

So far I find med bay (level 2) to be one of the most useful early game upgrades to get, since there's at least 3 events which you can get either a guaranteed reward, a new crew member or save a crew member from death if you have it. There may be more I forgot but it's rare to have a run where I don...

What is the reasoning behind unreachable beacons?

I get that the devs apparently think unreachable beacons aren't a problem. But why? To me, it makes zero sense for an unreachable beacon to show up on the map. In galaxies with billions of stars, we can fly to maybe 20 of them. Okay, that's fine since apparently these locations were significant enou...

Re: The most infuriating encounter in the game.

Are there other blue options for the mine thing? Besides, engines aren't useless, in fact they're the cheapest defense against missiles. Oh yeah, you're right. I was thinking piloting. I think the level of engines you need for this blue option is rather high though. The other options are a missile ...
