Introduction and newb question

Postby Awaras » Fri Sep 07, 2012 10:06 am

Hi all, just got to play the game this Monday as a 10$ backer and I am hooked! Best 10$ I ever spent.
I can't thank the devs enough for making such an awesome little game!

I managed to finish the game yesterday (with more luck than skill) and now I am working on unlocking new ships. The replayability seems very high.

I am sure this has been discussed to death during the alpha, but I searched the forum and could not find anything:

Why are we not able to sell fuel/missiles/drone parts in stores?

I have not played around much with drones (Although yesterday i figured out that you can take out enemy attack/defence drones with well timed or lucky shots of your main weapons) and always have a lot of drone parts collected along the way.

Sometimes you just need another 5-6 scrap for that crucial upgrade you just ran into at the store, and I feel that the ability to sell your surplus fuel, missiles or drone parts, even for just 1 scrap per unit could come in handy some times...

You can sell your missile, drone parts and fuel surplus in some nodes.

Luck is an important part of the game. It encourages decisions: must I save scrap or just buy the first interesting item I can get?
You can like or dislike it; but I belive it is a good decision.

Well, maybe I am not using the full potential of my ship. I really should look into drones. It's just that I haven't been using them so I would end up with 20-30 drone parts but 0 missiles...

Drones are outstanding. Defense drone is a must to finish the game (not always, but it makes the task much more easier) If you equip your ship with 1 defense mk1 drone, and 2 attack drones (mk1 and mk2), you have a powerhorse. Just activate them, shoot with your weapons against enemy shield, and win the fight unscratched.

Believe me when I say that the Torus is the best ship in the game because it can have 3 drones (I have not seen the misterious cruiser yet).

I agree it would be nice to be able to sell back fuel/missiles/drone parts at the store; as the replies said some random encounters allow you to sell them but that doesn't help you if you are standing at the store. Scrapping them for 1 scrap each seems fair enough.

I've always found with a missile based approach I can never get enough missiles, and with a drone based approach I can never get enough drones.

Beating the game is easiest with lots of both. ;)
