Re: Favourite Ship Type

For a long time I thought the Cruiser was the best ship. In my current game I started with a Cruiser and upgraded it to great awesomeness. But now, in sector 1028, I finally found the best ship: ...

Re: Victory!

I've now completed six victories: Tentaculons, Monks, Vordelaine, Resistance, Bankers, and Unifiers. I'm not sure how many other options there are. The Limoquee and Firax and Eaters and Pirates...

Re: Reports of bugs or possible bugs.

I'll be darned! It WAS the gravitation pull of 500 planets. Nice touch! Not a bug but a feature.

Re: Reports of bugs or possible bugs.

Drat! Another apparent bug, that will probably end my game. I've been in "crafting nirvana": my captain has Efficient Construction 3 (which means it takes only 2 of each part to craft an item) and I...

Re: Reports of bugs or possible bugs.

Another apparent bug. Playing another Hard/Permadeath game, have worked on to sector 68. All of a sudden I start getting lots of the starter achievements. Through various games I had earned...

Re: Reports of bugs or possible bugs.

Apparent bug.

In a previous ver. 1.0 game I had the Hand Scanners device. They worked perfectly. The effect is "L.O.S. Not blocked on planets." That means you can see everything out to the...

Re: Feature requests

You mean you didn't write it all from scratch in Assembler?

1. As I said above, gamma tweaking is bad. But wouldn't it be easy to add a line that says, in pseudo-code, if user presses w, all...

Shield Details & Treasure Levels

My wife and I each bought copies of AI and it's basically destroying our lives! Two questions:

1. Can anybody explain exactly what RCH (recharge) and CD (cooldown) do for shields? I think I...

Re: Making things tougher?

My impression is that things are generally toughter in version 1.1. There are new monsters to worry about, especially the dreaded lava blobs.

Re: Patch Notes

I could have been more precise.

Since I read that the patch is incompatible with earlier saves, I moved my save-folder to a backup on my desktop and deleted it from where it usually lives. Then I...

Re: Patch Notes

The patch would be worth it if all it did was give the option to change fonts. That's a big improvement.

Patch Notes

So the 1.1 patch is out! This presented me with a quandary, because the patch is said to be incompatible with previous saves, and in my current game I'd reached Crafting Nirvana in sector 201. That...

Re: Feature requests

And a fourth. The problem with distinguishing dark squares from unexplored squares on planetary surfaces is the biggest problem with this excellent game. On some planets it's virtually impossible,...

Which Way Are We Going?

In the original Rogue and most other roguelikes, one is venturing down, typically diving down into a dungeon.

But which way are we going in Approaching Infinity? Down doesn't feel right; neither...

Ion Accumulator 2

ibol, May I please have codes once again for the Ion Accumulator? I'm replaying on Hard/Permadeath. (That's the broken Tentaculon quest where they give you the Shield Regenerator by mistake.)

Re: Dumb Crafting Question

Thanks. Same manual. I missed that. FWIW, I blame that from drastically fading eyesight at age 60 from medical problems.

I have more dumb questions, concerning knowledge of "effects," but I'll...

Dumb Crafting Question

I'm playing yet another game. It's quite a change to go from weapons that can hit for 10,000 to a +2 pistol with range of 1/2!

One question. Some devices are marked with carats (^), asterisks,...

Re: Victory!

I've won by completing the Tentaculon questline at Hard & Permadeath & hacking to be able to go back at critical junctures.

The victory screen is not that impressive!

My goal now is to explore...

Speed?

What exactly do the speed ratings do?

My away team is rated as below average in speed since I'm carrying a heavy eviscerator with a speed rating of -60.

My ship is rated as above average since...
