Abandoned Sector?

Postby TheJackall793 » Wed Apr 23, 2014 2:35 pm

So in my quest to unlock the Zoltan Cruiser Mk. B, I stumbled along a new sector that I wasn't aware existed, the abandoned sector. My curiosity got the better of me so I aborted my current mission for the layout to explore this sector. After warping I got into a fight with a Lanius ship, wondering if destroying this ship would unlock the Lanius cruiser I did all I could to destroy it, but it powered up it's FTL drive and jumped before I could kill it. Next I explored every place I could in this sector but to my prevail failed to destroy and hostile Lanius ships. I have a few questions to ask about this mysterious sector:

Is it a rare sector?
Any specific events which happens there?
Can you unlock any ships with the events there?
Is there any other points to going there?

As far as I can tell:
No, it occurs with the same frequency as other red sectors.
Yes, several Lanius specific events were written for this sector.
You can spoil yourself for it here if you want http://ftl.wikia.com/wiki/Ship#Lanius_Cruiser.
To me, the new events are the primary point of the sector. But if you want the challenge of fighting a boatload of mind control / hacking drone / other AE content, that can be fun too.

It's another sector type, it depends a lot on what ships you're rocking. As mentioned, Lanius ships have no atmosphere and have a lot of hacking and MC, and you don't (generally) run into a lot of other ships here. That means if you have a boarding based ship (Unless you also have lanius or a boat load of boarding drones), it's a bad choice. If you have a drone-based ship it's not bad, because they're generally not running rigger ships, so not anti-combat drones and such.

I view it as a cross between a mantis and a slug sector.

As a general rule, it makes better use of ship upgrades for blue options, so if you bought things like uptraded piloting or scanners, it's also worth hitting.
