Re: Weapon Pre-igniter augmentation should be debuffed?

Of course, if you're using the Crystal B, you could always just take them down to 1 hull, let their weapons come back, and drop your shields. Crystal Vengeance should finish them nicely. That's brilliant. Never thought of that. 1 point of hull cost you only 2 scrap (in early sectors), compared to 6...

Re: Hazards in The Last Stand

According to XML, no, it's not possible.

Btw, fighting the boss in an ion storm would be a nightmare. All his weapons are 1 power, which means it's be almost unaffected by the storm, while you'd be losing half of power.

Re: No experience gain with Ion-ed Shields

I never thought about this, but it's pretty crappy. I guess all the other stations work that way, though. One ion damage to a system prevents you from using the console to get the crew member bonus. Exactly. It's especially annoying on a shield because that's the one that takes longest to level up ...

Re: Don't you think this is kinda.......silly?

I think it might be plausible that rebel fleet lets you slip through because they can't imagine that one ship is a big threat. They're too focused on outnumbering formations of Federation fleet to chase you. And then you catch the boss basically with pants down, when it's too far away from rest of t...

Re: Weapon Pre-igniter augmentation should be debuffed?

I see 2 problems with this 1) dont u risk that AI scout ships can FTL away with your crew on board (solution is target engine first?) It won't jump away unless the event tells you it's powering up its FTL. It's usually not worth boarding then. 2) MORE IMPORTANTLY, wouldn't killing the ship require ...

Re: Just Lost My Entire Save

The loss of a file is something that can always happen when you're writing to it.
It doesn't matter if it's FTL, Microsoft Word or Fissionator 1952 Manager. Or is it application crash or sudden power loss.

Re: Unlocking the Slug Cruiser

Yep, by boarding you give up all surrender options, including this one.

Re: Computer Slowdown and Heatup

UPDATE: The game runs MUCH better in full screen. Perhaps someone could look into why it runs poorly windowed? Everything (not only games) run much better in true, exclusive fullscreen than windowed. (Maximized window is still not fullscreen.) This is very simple: in window you computer has to proc...

Re: No experience gain with Ion-ed Shields

If you look at your guy, he's stepping away from the console when shields are ioned. I can't remember now, but I believe the icon "station manned/unmanned" also turns hollow to indicate that. This possibly means that not only he's not getting any xp, but worse: he's not speeding up shields...
