RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014)

RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

FTL: Faster Than Light Cheats


Cheats

Infinite Ships

Normally, the game will delete your autosave and stop you from continuing if your ship is destroyed. To get around that restriction, you can find the game folder in Windows and make a copy of the continue.sav file on your desktop or some other handy location. Then if you play the game and lose your ship, you can simply copy that spare file to your game folder and try again. You can repeat this as often as you like, but remember to always use caution when manipulating such files or you could lose progress unexpectedly.

Avoid Ion Shield Damage

If your enemy is attacking with an ion weapon, consider letting your shields down. If it hits the ship while your shields are up they will be reduced in power for a few seconds. If, however, it goes through your shield it may hit another, less crucial system (or even an empty room) and your shields will be undamaged.

Tips and Tricks

If you have a low-level weapon that will not damage the enemy's hull keep firing (so long as you are not in danger). Your crew gain's experience with every shot. Disable the enemy's engines to maximize your combat time. This way they will not be able to escape.
If your enemy is unable to penetrate your shield just sit tight! While they futilely attack you your engine, pilot and shield crew gain experience.
If you have a cloaking device be sure and enable it when the enemy fires - even if they can't hurt you. You gain skill from dodging.
Cycle your shields during combat. So long as your timing is good you won't take damage but the crew member manning shields will receive a small boost.
If you encounter combat in an asteroid field after destroying the enemy ship, don't jump! Remove your pilot to drop your evasion to 0%. Every asteroid strike that hits your shield will give your crew manning the shield 1 experience point. On average you can max your shield crewman in 10 minutes.
