The new slug sector is AWESOME!

Also, thanks for the glaive beam. I thought I was crazy - that I'd dreamt it up during the onlive beta! But no! IT WAS REAL! First game I try - I find two stores with them for sale. Good stuff!

I also love the new crew UI changes. Thanks a lot!

First game I play after updating I get the Glaive Beam too! Tearing it up through the sectors, now I'm just wondering how I'm going to screw it up at The Last Stand.

EDIT: Welp, I'm dead.

Glaive Beam + Burst Laser 3 = CRAZY amounts of hurt. Throw an antiship drone in the mix for funsies too.

Also unless I'm mistaken engies now learn skills a lot more rapidly, and pilots now contribute to evasion as well (making some very high evasion scores possible). Though it does plateau a bit towards the end... still. 55% evasion is exceptionally solid.

Noticed that there was a new build because of the soundtrack, then the crew skill popouts. Then came here and eagerly lapped up the changelog! Love it!

Changes look great. Keep up the great work. Here is to another 30 hours of having my crew killed in horrible ways.

Do you hear the new music at the start? You just don't see "Jelly Cruiser" in the ship list after the "Federation Cruiser"? That sure would be odd.
If you're having hull problems, I feel bad for you son. I've got 99 problems but a breach ain't one.

I have officially named this patch 'Skies on Fire'. Maybe it's just my first few games with the new patch, but fire seems way more common to break out and the solar flare systems seem much more common. Further study is needed! This isn't a bad thing, just makes me want to invest in blast doors a lot more.

So, is it just me and i am having an off day or what? Normally I can get to last stand easily to have my ass handed to me by the big boss. But now i am getting fragged before i even get to the 5th sector.

I'm told that we accidentally put an older version of the Kickstarter music track in this new build. Whoops! The next build will have the current version. :) Glad you guys are enjoying it! More to come!
I made the music for FTL! :D
