Re: Unlocking the Mantis ship

If you're not a big fan of boarding, you aren't missing out on much with either of the Mantis cruisers esp. the type B. I just feel the need to complete the game with all the ship variants. I've won with everything else at this point. Yes, I know what you mean. Currently I'm doing a run with the St...

Re: Best way to earn scrap?

The best way I found: get long Range sensors + Scrap Recovery arm in the first two sectors if you are able to. Of course, this is random so it is up to luck. But I got lucky yesterday (on Easy) and found both Long Range Sensors AND a scrap recovery arm in sector ONE (or I got one of them start of se...

Re: Why doesn't Cloak go off CD after a battle

Apparently you never boarded successfully, since you don't know what you're talking about. Actually, I did board succesfully several times: as a bonus you get extra scrap, sometimes an extra crewmember and sometimes a weapon installed on the ship you boarded. But I guess I wrongly remembered the th...

Re: Beating the game in the Zoltan cruiser (without hull dam

Congrats! No, you won't need the Defense Drone Mark II. Why? It's going to waste power, for one. That, and the lasers are harmless if you have high shields and evasion. You don't *need* it, but if you have enough scrap, it's definitely worth it IMO. It stops some of those pesky rockets and acts as ...

Re: The greatest ship ever.

I don't have a pic of it but I ran into a rebel ship that only have a basic laser as a weapon in sector 5 no attack drones, nothing Me too. Just one basic laser... if you have at least two shield points, it can't do anything. I wonder if you can use it for grinding: keep shooting an ion weapon and ...

Re: Beating the game in the Zoltan cruiser (without hull dam

Congrats! Zoltan A is a really nice ship. Tip 1: get the Defense Drone Mark II if you can, together with maximum shields and high evasion, your defense is practically impenetrable, because it shoots down missiles AND lasers. Judging from my play yesterday, the Mark II can also shoot down incoming bo...

Yeah, I meant the Brig. I'm not a native English speaker, so sometimes I make mistakes... :)

Re: Best Ship?

Zoltan B has a little place in my Heart. Perhaps I had back luck, or a bad playing style, but I just unlocked the Zoltan B and I still find the Zoltan A nicer. The Zoltan B has really badly placed door control and O2 systems. My last three runs I ran into boarding events (bypassing the shields) wit...

Re: Why doesn't Cloak go off CD after a battle

Actually, one of the reasons (the reason?) why I thought the Teleporter cools down instantly, is because there are situations were you only have a split second to get your crew onboard. For example: you're boarding an enemy ship, and halfway through they want to surrender, with an offer you just can...

Re: The Vortex[tips]

Perhaps it would be better as a ship system, with its own energy bars, which you can upgrade. Each upgrade gives extra bonuses to the schip or the drones.
