Re: Engi Cruiser - First Try

You like the medibot dispersal? I've never had much use for that augment. I like it too, it is hardly noticeable but it's good when a) your rooms get hit by bombs/missiles and they need fixing so you can't send anyone to the medbay, or b) you are bone idle, and can't be arsed to send people to the ...

Re: Best Ship?

Red-Tail is probably the most consistently successful ship out of the ones you listed. If you can unlock the Zoltan B, I believe that one is the absolute best ship in the game and I am confident I can win with it 100% of the time (now that I fully understand how to make the best use of the Ions). F...

Re: Engi Cruiser - First Try

torus lover here :D, medibot is hands down one of the best augments, saves my ass from early invasions so many times, drones are incredibly efficient and fun to use (no waiting for ur weapon cool-downs to align for any weapon heavy ship) and once you get a recovery arm, the game is almost waiting t...

Re: Best Ship?

Zoltan B is better than Zoltan A, in my experience, due to a great starting weapon set-up. Of the ships you've listed, though, I'd say the Red Tail is the best. Even if you swap out weapons quickly, having four weak weapons instead of, say, 1-2 strong ones means your weapons specialist will max out ...

Re: [Suggestion] Regarding the Mantis Cruiser A

Yes, the bomb easily deals with both of these problems. It's a great weapon.

Additionally, upgrading the teleporter to level 2 allows mantis to survive boarding an AI ship, allowing you to disable their shields with boarders before destroying it with the laser weapon.

Re: Luckiest Adventure Ever.

You do seem to be having a pretty fortunate first run! I'd recommend not buying so much power. You'll want to hold onto a fair amount of scrap in case you find a worthwhile purchase in your travels, and you don't always need everything powered at once. The med-bay, for example, is worthless to keep ...

Re: What am i missing?

Sounds exactly like a stealth situation. You can't retrieve your guys if the enemy ship is stealthed.

If you think you might need to pull your boarders out of there, disable the enemy's stealth system before boarding next time.

Re: Balance thoughts after 59 hours.

I'd rather avoid random crew member deaths due to boarding. Right now, losing crew in combat is an avoidable issue, and losing crew to random events usually involves taking risks with them (engaging giant space spiders or manually searching wreckage, for example). Incorporating a static chance to lo...

Re: My boarding crew was taken when enemy ship run away!

At the risk of sounding condescending, here's a possible explanation: You'd still be "in danger" if there was an environmental danger like solar flares or asteroids, and your warp timer wouldn't progress if you didn't have someone at the helm or if your engines were disabled. Since you wer...
