Re: Underrated and Overrated Ships

kinda misnamed post, since stealth A is often hailed as one of the best and fed cruiser is rarely ranked among the top ships.

zoltan B is pretty great, my personal favorite ship (or perhaps tied with engi A, i can't get enough of that medibot dispersal)

Re: Any Hints on unlocking these ships?

actually i've managed to unlock all three. for the slug and mantis it was simply that i almost never bother to upgrade the necessary systems. for crystal it was just bad luck, i know a number of runs i'd gotten the required event but it was always -before- i had gotten the stasis pod.

Re: Don't you think this is kinda.......silly?

In the last stand, you are deep within the rebels' fleet but there are still some shops and repair ...

Re: scary system req's for netbook users?

unfortunately running windows on the same netbook, fullscreen doesn't work. it also stutters like hell during combat. i've gotten around both these issues with various utilities, but i think the system reqs are pretty much accurate for "install it and go" on windows at least

Re: Oxygen in Enemy Ships

I've never seen this. are you sure you're waiting until the oxygen on their ship gets low enough to actually suffocate them? if you dont cause a hull breach it takes a long, long time for the 02 to drain to damaging levels. rooms where it's low enough to cause suffocation get a yellow border around ...

Re: [edit] Ignore this, false bug report, I am dumb

well, i at least recognize where i went wrong here. the text is as follows: While the crew is off the ship searching through the wrecks, two hulls crash into each other breaking the crew's tethers. You have no time to react as someone is knocked away, floating helplessly into the gaseous clouds... i...

Re: [BUG][Replicate-able] Ion Nebula event deletes Zoltan cr

dear god I am retarded. I swear I read and reread the event text a dozen times in the past couple hours and somehow utterly failed to see that. it's like when you've lost your keys and search nonstop only to find they were sitting on the damn table in plain sight. at least i wont fall prey to this e...
