Re: Confessions of a pirate...

I forgot about degradation. I was more refuring to the early Spore days or SECURom which prevented it working with certain hardwere due to the DRM, which the cracked versions work. And I'm afraid buying and then cracking just causes their marketing execs to count a sale despite the DRM and +1 for ad...

Re: Upgrading Weapons

The odds of not having a bomb, ion weapon, good enough normal weaponry, no teleporter and the need to fight the ship all at the same time are pretty slim as it is tbh.

And frankly, 'upgrading' weapons doens't make much sence when the lower forms are often better.

Re: Confessions of a pirate...

Using DRM to justify piracy is indeed wrong. However acting like DRM itself in it's legitimately customer harming forms is NOT wrong is probably worse. If you are ever in the situation where it is more conviniant to pirate then buy legit, my sympathy for the developers hit's 0. I think the most biza...

Re: Weapon Pre-igniter augmentation should be debuffed?

I thought so as well. Though you can always let them repair the systems, re-break them, and thus get a lot of exp per ship. If I recall right combat doens't need much to level up.

Re: Confessions of a pirate...

I've passed on a lot of games of late, and feel really damn guilty if I buy anything with invasive DRM. I'll accept steam/desura though, as I will CD keys, One time activation e.t.c. Theres enough trade off in value there, or inconvinance is minor, along with reasonable pricing. Something like Origi...

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 findi...

Re: Faster Than Light - Tips for New Players

You rated Humans worst?! Traitor!! Humans have NO weakness, how can they be worst?? Rocks or even Mantis i could understand but Humans. Traitor! Mantis cant repair anything. If you board, you need 2 at most, or none since Humans make decent enough boarders. So kick the Mantis off your ship. Kick th...

Re: Advanced Players: How are you beating normal?

Ion is probably the single best way to keep a sheild down and out. 1 ion on a sheild will make sure everything else hits. It's also a lot more relaibale with beams (No chance of the sheild returning to inturupt the beam), and drones (who usualy spend most of their time sheild blocked unless you outr...

Re: Accepting surrender, yay or nay ?

I found surrender to generaly be very poor later on, it seems to me (antodatal evidance warning) that the scaling of the scrap ewards causes the destruction reward to getaly exceed the surrender reward in the last few sectors. Generally though, borad > all, unless i really need what thye offer. Espe...

Re: I found out a new thing at least for me (might have spoi

I guess the OP is refuring to the slaver ship specifically. That has an extra bonus for crew defeat :)
