Re: There has to be a less random way of unlocking ships

There's a save game editor floating around here somewhere (think it's in tips and strategy guides) if you really really want to. For me personally, unlocking all of the ships myself was a large part of the content, to the point where my playing has trickled way down now that I don't have anything to...

Re: [Idea] Fuel Converter

I honestly don't get the hate for nebula storms. Your opponent is operating under the same conditions, and you're smarter than it is. All it does is make it easier to kill the enemy.

Re: Boarding Defense - A Commander's Manual

Turn OFF your Oxygen when venting boarders. Vent all the rooms in the path that boarders have to travel through, then lock the doors and turn off oxygen so they don't become habitable again. They won't stick around attacking systems if there's no air in the room, so it's exceptionally easy to get ou...

Re: Honestly, why is getting new ships so arbitrarily long

That's because the only requirement for the Engi cruiser is getting to the 5th sector :P Anyways, I never really had any problems with it. I unlocked the stealth cruiser early on (though I restarted on my better computer and didn't pull my save over) and just enjoyed myself. I didn't really look up ...

Re: [SUGGESTION] Veteran Crew Roster and Captains

I like the captain idea, but ideally I'd like to see some more risk/reward for it. Basically make them better at doing "heroic" things (that has a higher chance of getting them killed), but make the crew suffer a morale hit if he dies.

Re: Love to see a longer game

I'd say keep the advancing fleet and put a boss on every sector node. The fleet keeps you from grinding it out in Sector 1 so much you steamroll everything, so I feel it's a necessary part of the game to keep the difficulty up. Other than that, just keep increasing the difficulty every sector until ...

Re: Final Boss (normal) Fool proof strat

Wouldn't work for me.

Half the time the only weapons I use aren't affected by shields at all. I typically run bomb heavy boarding games. I never even touch shields.

Re: Easy mode ludicrously hard

I laugh and grow a little more happy every time someone goes off on how mean the FTL community is. Everything "negative" in this topic is downright tame compared to almost any other gaming community. Everyone else is an asshole, therefore, it is okay. These forums have a pretty awesome co...

Re: Boarding Overpowered? (Also Suggestions)

I'll second the "Let the AI have and use airlocks" idea. You'll still have the advantage over an AI boarder because you can choose which room you want to beam to, but it won't be quite as OP. Though honestly, to make boarding quite as powerful, all you need to do is put a medbay and level ...

Re: Need a middle difficulty

I like your idea, but make it even more fun. Give you a super power tricked out ship that utterly wrecks everything in the sector, then get half your ship blown up by the flagship(losing all the fancy upgrades in the process...actually, kind of like the phases of the flagship now) and you have to li...
