Re: Strategy to maximize scrap

I've found that if I upgrade my shields and/or engines early it makes me have more scrap overall. If you spend less on repairing your hull, you have more to spend on other things. Hull repair drones help as well since it seems I get tons of drone parts just from flying around, but sometimes you just...

Re: [MODDING] I made a tutorial: create custom events & sect

I'm glad you posted this, thanks! I can read code pretty well but it's nice to have a starting point. I think I am going to try to make a slower pace mod, with not so urgent of an objective. The game play is already great in the standard setup but it would be nice to have an option to sit back and r...

Re: How do you use boarding effectively?

I am not sure a purely boarding strategy would work without using some form of secondary weaponry be it drones or something else like Ion weapons. I haven't tried it myself, but I have seen a healing torpedo in the game where you can target the enemy ship and heal your units by using up a missile. I...

Re: The Torus - Ion, Shield + Drone Strategy (Video)

In this video you bought a slave. That was 45 scrap down the drain just kill the slave ship and he says hey ill give you a slave if you let me go. fyi Not always true. Sometimes when you attack the slave ship he does not offer to give you the slave. The only certain way is to pay the price if you a...

Re: I keep meeting the mothership, but not strong enough

I am having the same problem. I have found that I don't bother upgrading my engines enough compared to other people so I plan on trying that. I always end up having my hull either half or totally screwed by the time I reach the final boss even if I swing by repair sites. I usually have 3-4 shields b...

Re: How to survive no air in the broken O2 room.

If you open doors from oxygenated rooms to non-oxygenated rooms it looks to me like it sort of blends the rooms O2 levels.

Re: What's your favourite Weapon/System/Sub-System?

So far I like the fire beam. If you pair it with something that can take out the enemy shields its great. It strafes several of their rooms so you can light them up, it reduces oxygen and takes out their subsystems. So far I haven't had the opportunity to use the fire beam + ion, which seems like it...
