Re: Suggestions for FTL 2

I'd like to see planet or station missions for the crew, but first you'd have to be able to train up your crew like you can upgrade the ship. Make some crew members techies for downloading info or opening doors, or ranged specialists and hand-to-hand combat guys - even doctors! Would add another dim...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Stormed through he first zones with the Engi ship blasting everything out of the sky. By the end my setup was, IIRC, anti-ship drone I, defense drone I, ion cannon II, Hull laser (2 shots) and Hull beam. Ship was equipped with 3 shields and stealth II. Sounds great, right? Wrong ... I just could not...

Re: Post your best ship setup

Great set-up on your kestrel Fangz- I used a similar one to beat the boss the first time. Almost identical except I as using the Red Tail and had a cloak instead of a teleporter (great for avoiding power surges) and a small bomb instead of a pegasus. The key to the build is the halberd beam, though ...

Re: Maybe not a bug, but shouldn't really happen

I got stuck in the same situation - only without the teleporter, so I couldn't even attack their systems. Jus out of interest - Did you encounter the drone after getting the 'You have no fuel but your impulse engines let you explore the system' message? That's what happened to me. I get that this ga...

hull missile or small bomb?

Simple question - I've got both at the moment thanks to random drops, but they are too similar to keep. Hull missile simply rips ships to shreds - but can be shot down by drones. Bombs get past shields and drones, but don't do much damage. Great for taking shields and weapons offline though. Which w...

Re: Your most Crushing defeat

I had the most horrendous run today. Started well - found a scrap collecting arm and swelled my crew with a rock, a mantis and a zoltan. I upgraded shields and handling, got drones, and the first few zones were a blast. Then I somehow angered the Random Number Gods. Every encounter dropped less and ...
