Re: [open beta] FTL Captains Edition 0.962

I haven't played through without it happening yet, and seems to not happen so far within the first sector. I have had it happen 2 out of 2 times (not much to go on I know) in the Engi homeworlds and a couple of other times in other sectors. To be clear, this crash happens when I'm out of the first s...

Re: [open beta] FTL Captains Edition 0.962

Hi, Loving the mod, been waiting a while for something like this. But unfortunately I keep experiencing a crash when jumping sometimes to a new sector. I'm pretty sure it's something on my end as I haven't seen any posts regarding the same issue as mine. Hopefully someone might be able to shed some ...

Re: I don't get it

Yeah he's already been suspended once, I'll wager he's only a few posts away from another, or even a ban. But hey, he's not bothered about that right? He thinks the game is broken anyway.

Hmm, nice! I'd have never thought of doing that :-)

Re: Destroying Drones

All projectile weapons can 'accidentally' hit drones. It appears the game is actually calculating every projectile's flight path for real... Had a ludicrous event recently, when I showed the game to my brother: He bought his first drone system, launched a first drone, which decided to fire at the s...

Re: Most profitable sectors?

As far as I can tell, there is still a slow down to the rebel advancement in nebula sectors. It's not as great as hitting a small nebula in a normal sector but I'm 99% sure the fleet moves at something like 2/3 of their normal speed, possibly 3/4.

Re: Accuracy

All weapons will hit 100% of the time, they are 100% accurate. What you're seeing when you miss is the enemy ships evade chance, just like your ship. To reduce it, take out the helm, pilot, or engines, just like on your ship.

Re: [Modding]Creating your own weapons

Just noticed bp is present in crewBlueprints as well, thus it's either multi-functional or not related to weapon priority order. Effectively, BluePrint itself would be the most common meaning of bp, but I still have no idea what it's used for. @Retro: Jup. Ah great, was a big fan of both IC and IC2...

A random theory, it could be botPriority, aka how AI assigns energy to the weapons in case it runs out of energy for all weapons. Just a wild guess though.


Sorry to go off topic but: Hi Alblaka, are you the same Alblaka from the minecraft mod IC2?

Re: Wonky offcenter game window

I've had this problem once before. I have full screen option checked and once when alt-tabbing back in, the screen was off centre by about 1-2 cm to the bottom left. I was on the hanger screen at the time. Changing screen to menu etc didn't solve and neither did alt-tabbing again. Restarting the gam...
