Re: Final boss, help! [SPOILERS]

Generally I find that you can tank the drone surges pretty well with only 3-4 level shields and 4-5 bars on engines. The important thing to remember is that you need to take down is burst lasers quickly once you kill his missile launcher as those tend to down your shields and make way for the drones.

Re: Your dumbest FTL moments

Kill the crew by knocking out the oxygen, then set fires everywhere. The flagships auto-repair will continuously bring systems online to be taken out by the fire, dealing 1 damage each time. Shouldn't take too long once the crew is dead. "Perhaps, but it is past one in the morning and the capt...

Rockman Biology

Just realized that rockmen appear to fight by reaching behind themselves and then flinging a lump of stone at the enemy. Then I giggled.

Re: Your dumbest FTL moments

Just now made it to the boss with the Zoltan B. I had max shields, level 6 engines, a defense drone mark II, and cloaking. My weapons were 3 ion bursts and a fire beam. About an hour and a half into the first stage I finally decided to open all of my ship's airlocks let the entire crew get sucked in...

Re: Can I play as a ship boarder?

If you want to play around with boarding right from the beginning then you'll probably need to download a profile editor and use that to unlock all the ships right away. There are a couple of ships that start with teleporters or are otherwise good for boarding but they tend to take quite a bit of gr...

Re: I give up on the Slug Cruiser

Yeah, that was a bit of a shock the first time I ran into it. Those engines are beastly. If you focus everything on the cockpit then it tends to go down way faster than trying to hit their engines. Once that is damaged you can move on to chiping away at their engines and taking out their oxygen. Or ...

Re: Defeating the boss with Engi ship type A & this setup

I could pretty easily see you winning with this setup First off, you'll probably want to drag your defense drone into the first drone slot (you want it to be the very last one that goes offline when you take damage. Then use the scrap you have to upgrade your weapon system once and get another power...

Re: What was your most frustrating moment in FTL ? (Spoilers

Had one just now. I was playing the stealth A in sector 3 and was doing pretty well until the only way forward was to go through an asteroid field. I already had one layer of shield and really good engines so I decided to go for it only to run straight into an automated scout with 3 shields, 2 anti ...

Re: Nebulas - Yay or Nay

The only thing I don't get about nebulas is why they mess up your ship's internal security cameras. Did somebody leave a window open or something?
