Re: How Do Things Stack (Question)

Just to answer from experience, I outfitted my ship with two weapon reloaders and it was easily 30% faster reload speed. I do believe these upgrades stack. But was it 30% faster or was it 28.25% faster? (which is what the OP was asking) I know it would be hard to tell the difference in game play :t...

Re: Luck/Skill Balance

imho less random would makes things far too easy as you'd get exactly what you needed every time. I enjoy having to make do with what I can get on the fly.

as the devs have said half the fun is losing

Re: Some changes that I'd like to see

1) I like 2) is already in the beta, check your crew tab and mouse over a crew memeber 3) apparently coming in release or a later beta build 4) personal taste, I didn't mind it 5) normal is how the devs wanted the game to be, not having the right tools is how being on the run is meant to feel, if yo...

Re: The Torus - underpowered or misunderstood?

actually if we're talking under powered and misunderstood fly the the Mantis Crusier some time, took me several runs to get a handle on how to make it work and I guarantee more people will have trouble with that compared to the Taurus

Re: The Torus - underpowered or misunderstood?

Yeah, it seems like a good few people have had a decent time using the torus. My first run with it went really well until I died to some major missile barage in one of the late sectors. However, I find the more I play this ship, the less fun I'm having. It's a very powerful lategame ship, but the e...

If that was the primary argument for making decisions making this game this would be an ascii game like most other roguelikes. The fact that it isn't makes me carefully optimistic t...

Re: The Torus - underpowered or misunderstood?

If your flying the Taurus I think you need to consider buying weapons instead of holding out to find them , they should be higher on your priority list for purchasing at stores. and go for lower energy weapons like the burst 2 laser and the breech bomb that give good bang for the 2 power they use

Re: Possible Bug: Zoltan and weapons

as I said don't mind if its intended and part of the game just figured being beta it was worth brining up to make sure its a feature and not a bug
