Re: Balanced Randomization?

The problem with FTL is that consequences of player mistakes are not imminent. Being stranded with no fuel can be a consequence of choosing path through uncharted nebulae (which are known of having only 1-2 shops) 2 sectors earlier.

IMHO running out of fuel was your decision.

Re: Weapon Pre-igniter augmentation should be debuffed?

In addition to this you may bring your default crew to golden rank at the very first encounter with a ship that happens to have a med bay by just teleporting them back to your ship, healing, and then back to enemy ship until they get to golden rank. Interesting - how does this work? I thought comba...

Re: cmon moderators...

The registration question should be about some FTL features.

Re: What are your favorite upgrades / augmentations? [SPOILE

There was nice topic "how do you rate unique augments":

Re: Computer Slowdown and Heatup

I believe that all V-Sync does is to hold the game (the presentation of a frame to be exact) if next frame is ready, but 1/60 of second have not passed yet. It may result in locking down to half of framerate if the game is consistently just below screen rate. Triple buffering takes care of this. (It...

I have absolutely no idea. I'm not the author of the game, I'm just a half-baked hacker who opened data.dat in Notepad.
