Re: Honestly, why is getting new ships so arbitrarily long

I don't think unlocking the ships is that hard, apart from the crystal crusier, which is IMPOSSIBLE :evil: I prefer the way it is set out now, because if all it took was beating the game with different ships it would be much eaiser, and it would take some of the challange out of it. But it would be ...

Re: Burst Laser Mk3

I have played this game and the Mk 3 lasers isn't that good. It seems great, but the long recharge time just means you are waiting for so long for it 2 charge.

But if I have other lasers or missiles, i may consider getting it. But it is by no means OP and not the most powerful weapon in the game.

Re: Prevent AI from shooting uselessly

1.) Firing in volleys 2.) Targeting specific systems If the AI did this, it would put difficulty through the roof in my opinion. These 2 things would bridge the greater part of the gap between what we have now and what it would be like to face off against human opponents in 1-on-1 ship battles. Esp...

Re: Mantis Warship?

May I suggest one alternative? Move your combat to the medbay (and if you have more than three crew, which should be normal, situate them near medbay). Vent the rest of the ship, all of them. This forces the mantis to fight either in or near your medbay. Of course, this tactic is more difficult whe...

Re: Love to see a longer game

I'd suggest simply having actual subsystem damage to balance it out, meaning that you have to use scrap to repair your systems (How do you repair dozens of hull breaches with absolutely no resources??). An easy way to implement this would be to make systems lose a rank when they turn red, forcing y...

Re: Love to see a longer game

I like the game, but wish it lasted hours. This game reminds me alot of the origional Masters of Orion, I just wish it was longer like that game. I want the sectors to be much bigger, and open ended. A goal is nice, but not really a must have. I don't really like the idea of being chased through th...

Re: Best game i've played in a long time but...

True, some of FTL's achievements are luck based, and the crystal ship unlock is the most luck based out of all of them. But like UltraMantis said, they are funny to get, and this makes them more bareable. At least the achievements are just "play over and over again until u collect this much scr...

Re: Crystal Pod, Zoltan Scan and Rock Homeworlds

I've just found the statis pod for the first time, and as many of you know, it's a way to unlock the crystal cruiser. After having it scanned by the Zoltans, there are NO rock homeworlds on the sector map. ( I was on sector 2, and the majority of sectors were green. ) Are rock homeworlds generated ...

Re: Roguelike?

Here's what I wrote when this question came up on Reddit, slightly edited to be up-to-date with the latest game patch: The game can be paused at any time, and is fully controllable while paused. Unless you are Korean, I don't think you can progress meaningfully if you do not pause it. While paused,...
