Re: Do augment stack?

Yup, they stack just fine. I had a run with three scrap recovery arms by the second sector (sold my Engi healer augment just to see how good it would be). I had scrap bleeding out my eyeballs. Two or three automated reloaders are nice as well, especially coupled with something like an ion burst II (...

Re: Doors Are Important!

Unless I'm running a boarder heavy crew, I almost always grab doors 3 ASAP. The ease of suffocating enemy boarders is easy as hell with doors 3. Pretty much the only time I don't bother is with Crystal ships, and that's only because the lockdown ability can barricade doors.

Re: Zoltan Cruiser is Ridiculous

It really shines when combined with cloaking though. The Zoltan Shield denies boarders. Couple it with a Stealth to dodge the first volley (keeping your Zoltan shield) and you have enough time to destroy their teleporter or their ship entirely without dealing with their boarders at all.

Re: Activating FTL on Steam. Why?

Eh, believe it or not, but some people actually make use of steam 24/7. Myself included. It's a really nice distribution platform with lots of great deals for sure, but there's tons of utility outside of that. There's no end to my annoyance when I can't get the Steam Overlay to work for a game. Not ...

Re: Idea for Multiplayer

Do Timestop spells count? :P Though I will say there have been multiplayer games with pause...just not one where playing the game is actually centered around it. That said, it's not really too hard to play this game without pause. Admittedly, it does drastically change the playstyle though, which is...

Re: I don't get it

I still find it hilarious that you insist that boarding is useless. You DON'T have to abuse the AI to make it useful. I drop a small bomb in their medbay (if they have one, and honestly, they don't until MUCH later in the game), teleport my two mantis units into their ship, and just lol as they die ...

Re: Boarding Drones for Players, do they exist?

If I'm boarding, I'm usually boarding every time I can. I usually have all of my fighters maxed out way before I actually get to sector 8. If I'm not boarding, then who cares if you're losing out on combat experience.

Re: Idea for Multiplayer

I doubt it would really work too well. For one, that's quite a lot of (single player)work for what will usually be a pretty quick showdown. This would work better as a cloud of players instead of doing this with one of your friends and playing along. What I mean is, play through the game normally li...

Re: Boarding Drones for Players, do they exist?

They're actually quite good, but they're just like standard boarders: without support, they're useless. The easiest way to do that is to...well, blow up the med bay. Anyone who complains about medbay cycling really should take measures to easily disable them. Personally I prefer breach bombs, but mo...
