Re: No saves is not fun.

Guys.. knock it off, this is not solitaire, nobody asked for FTL to be high failure low success gameplay. If I wanted something like this i would go and play Diablo 3 hardcore. If you think that this game can feel rewarding only when the victory is so difficult to achieve, you are wrong. This is ob...

Re: Am I the only one who gets to walk-away with 500+ scrap?

I usually end up with a fairly high surplus of scrap when I get a teleport up early so I can start invading enemy ships to get the most scrap for them. Are you playing on easy, or normal? No, I'm playing Normal mode... This game needs a Hardcore mode, methinks... Not using pause is fairly hard, if ...

Re: [MOD] Gattling Laser Guns

Don't make it a continuous rate of fire... Do it like this- the weapon charges up for X seconds and fires until that charge depletes in Y seconds, after which you wait for the charge to build-up again. Rinse and repeat. The charge-up time (X) should be only 1-2 seconds longer than Y though. Also mak...

Re: Systems/Subsystems Ideas

I approve of this. Here's an idea for an augment (which I have yet to see ingame, so if there is one, sorry): Fire Suppression Bot Dispersal System: Functions like the Medi-bot augment, but helps extinguish fires. Or, make the top-most level of your Fire Response System automatically extinguish fire...

Re: No saves is not fun.

About sending your crew off to fight the infamous "Space-Spiders of the Cobweb Nebulae" (and the like encounters)... I'd really like an option to choose which crew members go before they get sent... And have a special blue option when the Teleport is installed to try and beam them back up ...

Re: No saves is not fun.

You can save your progress before exiting the game, but the game does not autosave because that would pretty much destroy the rogue-like, 'race in front of the unstoppable horde' permadeath mechanic (which is the main selling point for this game)... But I do somewhat agree- autosaves when you enter ...

If Butter's a Rock, you should know- he most likely doesn't like the Rebels much... The Rebels fight to establish a human dominance in space, whereas the Federation would keep the status quo of equality...

Re: The Adventures of the TSS Kestrel

What channel is this on Probably mine own channel, but I might dedicate a channel for it... Currently, this isn't 'on' anything but a piece of cyber-paper as I'm aiming the pilot episode at somewhere early October... Kestrel A layout, or B? This sounds intresting. Right now, I have only Layout A un...
