Re: Spaceship names!

Until I read this thread, I never noticed that we can rename crew members in the hangar.

Re: The Engi Conspiracy!

You cannot defeat The Metal. The Metal will live on. The Rock tried to defeat The Metal. They FAILED, and they were struck to the ground! The Mantis tried to defeat The Metal. They FAILED, and they were dashed to the ground! The Slug tried to defeat The Metal. They FAILED, and they were assaulted to...

Re: [SHIP]The Asgard Warships

Here's what it looks like in the Futhark of Old Norse: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v725/HidaOkami/belskrnr_zps9a476924.jpg Hopefully this helps to illustrate why your "minor nitpick" is a non-issue. You're trying to insist on the "proper" spelling of something that's named ...

Re: [SHIP]The Asgard Warships

Minor nitpick: Its name could only be properly rendered in Futhark, so Anglicized spellings may differ. :P

Re: I give up. Help me with Kestrel B aka Red Tail.

My first win in FTL was with the Red Tail. You can do it, as long as you have the other systems installed. I had a level 2 teleporter, a level 2 cloak, and 4 points in drones - allowing me to use a Defense II or an Anti-Ship I (I never did find an Anti-Ship II on that run). But swapping out the guns...

Re: [SUGGESTION] Please add a no-teleportation boarding mod!

I'm pretty sure by the time we figure out superluminal travel, we'll have teleportation figured out as well. They've already done it in quantum experiments in labs, it's only a matter of time before we can do it on a much larger scale. I'm pretty sure it's easier to move a man-sized object instantly...

Re: Why can't I charge my guns against cloaked ships?

Because a cloak does two things: It increases dodge chance and prevents weapons locks. If your target is invisible, you have no way to keep a weapons lock. And that's part of what charging entails - keeping your guns locked on to a target long enough to discharge them. And for game purposes, a cloak...

Re: Dubious "Slave" Depiction in the Game Universe

GTA is a game and not art. Oh my, Roger Ebert isn't dead after all! :p Some people believe games are not art, for whatever reason. Others understand games can be art (though not all of them actually are). I don't see why racism in a game is any different than racism in a movie. Do you think it's be...

Re: We should be able to take prisoners from defeated ships.

Slavery is a shame of human beings and one of the most horrible and disgusting things we can imagine. ...you know, aside from killing them, setting them on fire, asphyxiating them, or any of the other "horrible and disgusting things" that happen in FTL. :roll: Really, this doesn't sound l...

Re: Dubious "Slave" Depiction in the Game Universe

So, it's okay to blow up a ship full of sentient beings, but it's morally wrong to manumit someone from captivity and offer them employment? And it's OK to decide that discretion is the better part of valor when refusing to fight giant alien spiders, but morally wrong to choose not to fight a slave ...
