I've been enjoying these lets plays, most of then actually helped me unlock more ships, I've used all the mods that you have, and there a lot of fun!

After reading your feedback in my own topic, I couldn't really resist the urge to see what makes you a qualified giver of advice. And I gotta say dude, I liked what I viewed :)
Forgive me if this has been covered in your topic already but I've only briefly skimmed through so far; if you feel like a challenge(and could make for an entertaining video) how about a playthrough with nothing but the crew you start with; any others you acquire you must dismiss and you can't replace any losses? You'd be free to make upgrades to the ship as usual but I think such a challenge might be up your street from what I've seen :)

Taking a quick break from our mod-based adventures, the first episode of our no-shields challenge run has been linked in the first post! Check it out!

I'm glad the videos have helped you! Some of those ship unlocks drove me crazy. I swear I failed the Zoltan cruiser one every possible way before getting it right. >.>

Hmm, a "no-new-crew" challenge might be a good one... Would I be able to choose my own ship though? Because if I could, I'd be sure to pick one that started with four crew, so I had someone to man each station, which would be a lot easier than if I had to use the Vortex and be stuck with one crew forever. Good to hear you liked my videos as well!

After a fairly long break, a new episode of FTL appears in DryEagle's Scarab Cruiser (With added Gruesome-ness)! Thanks for sticking around during the break, and check the videos in the first post out!

And at last, we have our second FTL Challenge run! Check out the first post for a link to the Sole Survivor challenge where we attempt to make our way across space with only one crewmember...

It's crazy how difficult a simple restriction like that can make things! Try the challenge yourself, and you'll see what I mean! :P

Valorous, I subbed to you and I've been watching some of your videos. They've been instrumental to me and have resulted in me going from sucking to being fairly competent. I managed to unlock the crystal cruiser before any other ship (minus the one after beating the game) :lol:

Got the stealth ship unlocked now and I must say it is my favorite due to the challenges it faces early without shields.

Glad to hear that the videos have helped you get a better handle on the game! Finding the Crystal Cruiser so early is crazy lucky too... Took me forever to finally get my hands on it. >.>

I really like how the various ships and variants all promote different play styles: every ship you unlock has it's own tricks or challenges to bring to the table. Surprisingly enough, the Crystal Cruiser is kind off the exception. It's big gimmick is that you have crystal crew, I suppose. The piercing crystal weapons don't really change all that much in my opinion. :P

And a new run in DryEagle's "Escort Duty" Mod emerges! Check it out via the link in the first post and see if we can defend the defenseless...

A NEW CHALLENGE(R) APPROACHES!

In this new run we attempt to cross the galaxy with another major restriction: this time, we are never allowed to have more than one bar of engines! Cane we make it? Can YOU make it? Check out the link in the first post to see how we fare, and be sure to give it a try yourself!

I sure did. It sure was easy. So very easy. Untill i got horribly destroyed in seconds.

Dangerous challenge because you never realise you're in trouble in time. Normally slow engines is a weakness i would never allow myself to carry. Felt really uncomfortable playing against common sense.
