Re: Implement Steamworks, achievements and statistics on Ste

FTL achievements have 3 states, while Steam ones have only 2: - Steam: locked/unlocked. - FLT: locked/unlocked on Easy/unlocked on Normal It means that each achievement can be unlocked twice, which is not possible on Steam. This adds a ton of replayability, because you can do everything on Easy and ...

Re: Even easier game mode?

But I still find myself being beated up constantly. The problem with mastering FTL is that it's not always obvious what you did wrong. Often consequences of bad decisions are delayed several fights or even sectors. I recommend you "save scumming", that is saving&quitting the game ofte...

Re: Is there ever really a reason not to board?

Bad luck, getting cocky, or making a mistake is a lot more costly with a boarding strategy. I consider myself pretty good at this game, but I've managed to screw up and lose my boarding party in many, many ways... - boarded AI ship, did everything right, but the asteroid hit the room they were in. ...

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

I forgot the name, but mine is something I picked up in an Engi system, the description was "disperses nanobots throughout the entire ship which heal your crew, although at a slower rate". Basically, what it did was turn my entire ship into one giant med-bay B) Awesome upgrade: with that ...

Re: Faster Than Light - Tips for New Players

22) Boarding the pilot room will alert all enemies of your presence. Board somebody else in a small room, but beware as attacking the system itself will cause another alert. Actually, it's shields system that's most valued by AI, and pilot will often abandon helm if shields are under attack or need...

If the Corelian Corvette with Leia would make it to the Rebels, they'd send it alone against Death Star : )

Re: Weapon Pre-igniter augmentation should be debuffed?

and forget about auto-scouts at least in the first two sectors. I can't believe how everybody keeps thinking of AI ships as unboardable. In fact, they are EASIEST ones to board, as there's no one to oppose you. You just keep cycling your crew in and out their weapon bay with lvl2 teleporter, the AI...

Yep, every well armed Zoltan would own him. Even if it'd spawned with cheaper weapons, like any good rockets or even 2xBurst Laser I.
