Re: Can't bring myself to cheat, can't unlock the ships I wa

Play on easy.
This game is meant to unlock everything on easy, and then do it all again on normal. Every achievement track the difficulty and will be re-unlocked, with all whistles and stuff.

Never let your ambitions stand in your way to have fun.

Re: Confused about which wiki is *official*

ftlwiki has more accurate info, ripped straight from the game files. It seems to be edited mostly by one guy who's a hacker.
ftl.wikia.com has lots of old wives tale, inaccurate or plainly wrong data. Like all wikias, it's edited by swarm of "look what I've discovered" folks.

And on top of it it's not a moderator's problem, but master administrator. It's a most likely a problem with Touring test at registration step. Sandboxing new users to "say hi and introduce yourself" subforum is also a great tool. Last resort is a plugin to vote posts as spam/not spam for ...

Re: Save game editing

I'm stuck at the "0,0,-1" sequences which seem to describe room states as they come in pairs or quads. Then there's large area of zeros and then weapons, drones, etc. Any thoughts about those "0,0,-1" ?

Re: Accepting surrender, yay or nay ?

AFAIK you always get more scrap from destroyed ship than from surrender, so I don't see a point in keeping them alive unless I get something I need or an item, which usually are worth more scrap than the difference between surrendered and destroyed ship. Well, very rarely they offer so ridiculously...

Re: [SUGGESTION] How to fix the Vortex.

+ Can work/repair in oxygenless rooms. + Can be rebuilt if destroyed. - Slower move speed. - Lower health. That's already done with system repair drone. And you're reposting. Vortex is fine - if you can handle it. You start with 30+15 +15+25 = 85 scrap worth of poor drones and augments. Just get sh...
