Re: Suggestions to improve gameplay and interface

Here's an idea for improving the gameplay: Every so often (either it should have a limited number of uses or recharge every other sector or so) you can choose to send out an Encrypted Distress Call. Once used, a beacon will appear on your map showing the location of the nearest hidden Federation bas...

Re: Nebulas - Yay or Nay

Fleet pursuit is still decreased somewhat in nebula sectors, I think to around 75% or so, it's just not as effective as nebulas in regular sectors.

Augment Idea

Space Ponies: no effect, but can be sold at a shop for 50 scrap.

Re: Missiles not an option?

I made pretty much the exact same mistake my first playthrough. The Artemis and small bomb aren't exactly high damage weapons, meaning that you need to remember to use them on the bosses shield room so you can keep up the pressure with your energy weapons. Also remember that during the second stage ...

Re: It is truly a shame that FTL is so limited with resoluti

I have a widescreen monitor but if I want to watch youtube while I play then I have to squeeze the video into the corner of the screen and even then it gets partly covered up.

Re: Is there anything wrong with the engine systems? (evasio

Did you keep an eye on your evasion percentage? If you cloaked and it went over 100% then they shouldn't have been hitting you.

Re: Fire Beam useless?

The advantage of fire is that it keeps doing damage to systems and enemy crew as it burns. Breaches on the other hand tend to be repaired pretty quickly long before all the air has been drained from a room and I find that trying to kill off the crew using only breach weapons ends up wasting a lot of...
