Re: Mantis Warship?

There are many ships out there that are way harder than the boss, especially in sector 7 and 8. You just got unlucky, like many of us playing this great game. Sometimes you can have a great playthrough, and other times it just screws u over. For example, I once ran into a ship with level 4 shields, ...

Re: Need a middle difficulty

It seems to me there is 'easy' and 'normal' -- the most obvious difference is the lack of pause in normal, but there is also less rewards and more difficulty on Normal. So, add a 'hard' mode that adds to normal difficulty -- could also make 'insane' mode that adds even more. Lastly, switch the paus...

Re: Idea for Multiplayer

That sounds like a good idea, and it could work very easisly with the current game, no major changes will need to be made. The only thing I would add is that maybe u should be able to see what the other player is doing, so u know when to hurry up and when u can take your time. The disadvantage that ...

Re: Need a middle difficulty

Enemy ships do run out of missiles and drones. They're just willing to expend way more of them in any given fight than the player is. It doesn't bug the enemy ship to throw 15 missiles at you, while the player would want that many missiles to last at least an entire sector most of the time. The fla...

Re: So I just beat the game on easy...

Viper, beating the game on easy isn't all that easy. There is definitely strategy to learn. You always get a lot of smoke-blowing on forums like these, like douchebag above. It's all poo-poo. They make small mods that they think are unimportant but actually skew the game severely, or they exaggerat...

Re: Need a middle difficulty

This game is brilliant, and I like the "rogue-like" flavor where any number of things can kill you. The problem is, 99% of what kills me is AI missiles. The logic is pretty simple: if missile weapons had unlimited, free ammo would you use anything else? No, you wouldn't. They are awesome!...

Re: Prevent AI from shooting uselessly

That sounds like a good idea, but you might have to put that into a seperate difficulty, because if it was in easy and normal new players would find it very hard to get anywhere. Also, how would it apply to ships that can't get through your shields, like one with 2 beam weapons? Would they just sit...

Re: Need a middle difficulty

(and especially bomb weapons, of which the flagship has none at all) I could have sworn the left most weapon on the flagship was an ion bomb.. 2nd from the left is a heavy burst laser, third is a 3 missile rocket launcher and fourth is the beam weapon. what is the left most if its not an ion bomb? ...
