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

My /most/ successful bording run to date was actually with the /engi/ cruiser. Early ships don't tend to have med bays, (or the ones that do don;t have a lot else threatening). So bording with two engies and retreating a couple times is fine. THough once again it's a little more reliant on you find...

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

For upgrades it'd have to be the drone bay, drones are just incredibly useful. Regarding augmentations, one game I managed to get 3 automated reloaders with an Ion Blast II, and it was amazing, could disable basically every useful system on an enemy ship (shields, weapons, drone bay, O2, easy) It is...

Re: [Poll][FTLOverdrive]Battles with more than 2 ships?

How would you know that the ship in the other tab has repaired its weapons and is going to destroy your shields? ;-) Have both ship systems lists displayed (bottom row), but only show active tab ship crew/layout is how I'd do it. When you send an attack drone to a ship, then target a different one ...

Re: Tips on the Fire Beam

The fire beam is more effective if you start it on the back edge of a tile, instead of the front edge. Hitting more tiles doesn't help with the fire beam since it periodically has a chance to light tiles under it, so maximizing time per tile has a higher chance. The reason a straight line is effecti...

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

If your weapons plan is to light everything on fire you don't really need to board the enemy ship, but the strategy in question is taking enemy ships intact, which is simply the best choice whenever possible.

Re: Even easier game mode?

Hi, thanks both. I pause and micro-manage, even coordinating weapon firing. Love the pace it sets, this is such a great game! Went through all the mods - none do what I need. And don't feel like totally ruining it by giving myself infinite scrap or stopping the rebel tide entirely. Any other ideas?...

Re: Tips for a no pause challenge?

Isn't leaving most of the ship vented a death sentence if you get a hull breach in an important system room, though? I usually deal with hull breaches by opening all internal doors to equalize oxygen; this gives the repair crew a lot more time before suffocating. With a mostly vented ship, good luc...

Re: Tips for a no pause challenge?

I leave most of my ship vented and use an anti-personnel drone for boarders. Autofire is very useful, just remember if you press a weapon hotkey it stops firing until you re-aim it (You can drop the crosshairs by right clicking or clicking on empty space). This allows you to setup staggered volleys ...

Re: How do you beat the Rebel Flagship?

The fastest I have ever killed the boss recently, I was in the Vortex. Weapons were Pegasus, Burst Mk2, Burst Mk2 Drones were Antiship 1, Antiship 1, Antiship 2 Augmentations were 2 automated reloaders and a scrap recovery arm One can only imagine how evil Burst Mk2 would be with 3 automated reloade...
