Re: Idea: Space Station Mode

Great idea, perhaps you'd also be able to send out ships yourself to near-by systems to look for supplies or for quests.

Re: No Steam? Put larger warning sticker on GOG option PLZ!

... I've already explained that I meant "convenience". Good for you. That doesn't suddenly make the quote mean that. What you're referring by changing EULA is not "safety" (from being denied access to games), but exactly "freedom" (to use the games). I have no idea wha...

Re: No Steam? Put larger warning sticker on GOG option PLZ!

There is no "analogy" here, Steam is not totalitarian if you can choose it. The quote you chose was just simply wrong. Nope. They had chosen new License Agreement and forced it uppon me. I was not given a choice other than "lose all games you paid for and thought you own right to use...

Re: No Steam? Put larger warning sticker on GOG option PLZ!

Yes, here it's actually laziness in applying patches rather than safety. OFC unless someone feels insecure without the latest patch, which might be what's happening here. Have you anti-DRMers started resorting to spouting any old irrelevant nonsense now in the hopes no-one will notice and just assu...

Re: No Steam? Put larger warning sticker on GOG option PLZ!

How bizarre that people actually want DRM over no DRM??? It's been like that since at least 300 years. "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." How is that relevant at all? DRM has nothing to do with a consumers safe...

Re: Zoltan B Ship

I got the achievement fine while upgrading systems and shifting the power around. Perhaps you have to complete sector 5 to get it. I can't remember precisely when I got it.

Re: Suggestion for The Last Stand

The drone swarm doesn't kill on its own. 4 Shields and moderate evasion (or 3 shields and high evasion) is enough to avoid damage from it entirely the majority of the time. The reason the drone swarm will kill you is because you get hit with other weapons at the same time, thereby depleting your shi...

Re: Fire Beam useless?

The most valuable part of the fire-beam is that it can hit multiple rooms at once, no breach weapon can do that.

Yes, breach-bombs and missiles can the job done without back-up, but if you have the weapons support needed to use the fire-beam, then it causes far more devastation in the long-run.

Re: Question on Boarding Drones..

Until you get a weapon, you obviously can't defeat the auto-drones that have no doors (without losing crew). The best tactic with them is to upgrade your teleporter to level 2 quickly, and then teleport two of your crew into their weapon systems, and beam them back out before they die, you have just...

No they aren't. Pulsars are rotating neutron stars.
There are such things as rotating black-holes, which can produce effects somewhat similar to pulsars, but they are not pulsars themselves.
