I was playing a normal run using this triangle ship two days ago when I entered the second system. I found a Fusionfire Howitzer on sale. :shock: :D

I noticed over the past few days that, the moment the ICS becomes the enemy, there is nothing that can kill it.

Well, given that each round costs 1 credit, and the way I look at the buy-sell ratio ... you can't really sell it back for less than 1 credit, right? Jettisoning it is more or less the same as selling it, since it won't matter (unless if your number of SmartCannon Rounds number in the thousands). Th...

To add on to that (maybe), the ammunition that you tend to trip over a lot are for weapons that are extremely weak compared to the ones found near Heretic. Biggest offender is the Raisermesser SmartCannon, and apart from its tracking abilities, it's not that useful as a weapon near the end.

Besides, even if you're not going to upgrade to 1.02 immediately, it's not too difficult to adapt. I've only played this game about five times a month for the past three, and I'm already used to the control scheme.

Reserve D006

I wish to reserve D006. I probably should have done this before uploading the Idolknight Heavy Fighter onto Xelerus, since that uses D006. :oops:

I know the Borer-class miner is up next for us Battlepods, judging from other members. I'm not sure what's beyond that, though; probably the Ronin.

Are we making the switch to new forum software soon?

Well, you could put them into two separate folders, but is there a need to have two of the same mod to begin with? Perhaps you should release only the 1.01-compatible version first, then wait for 1.02 to come out before releasing the 1.02-compatible version. I think the easiest way to go around this...

The Stalwart gunship is a pretty decent mod to start off with, if you have problems getting past the first system. You can try the Agauptera yacht as well; that adds a bundle of laughs.

I looted an ICX Missile Defense turret in the second system a few days ago while play-testing a player ship WIP. Although that was not a proper run of the game, it still remains the highest level device that I've found in the first two systems that I like the most.

I generally prefer weapons with higher rates of fire, such as the Fast-Fire Laser (which during the one time I had it was made even faster by a ROM or weapon upgrade). I also chanced across a Morning Star once. I would probably have used it more if it didn't drain so much reactor energy. :) The most...

Funny, I ran Transcendence 1.01 off my portable hard disk on a computer that had two 1680x1050 monitors and it automatically expanded to fit the first monitor. I didn't investigate beyond the main menu, though.

On my very first play, I got killed by a Centurion gunship when it opened fire on a Centauri Raider just as I flew between both. Bad timing. :lol:

How exactly would i go about trying to get "+fast" on the katana? Just random testing of ROMs? There should be a weapon or device upgrade for that sort of thing. Both the laser and particle-type weapons have weapon upgrades that increase firing rate, and the Howitzers have a device that does the sa...
