Just a heads up for the community here that plays what I thought was last years best indie game, FTL, enjoy!

Some awesome mods on the link above!

Starcraft Conversion: 18 new Starcraft ships with highly unique abilities

Infinite Space: This is hands down the BEST mod for this game IMO. Adds infinite replayability by removing the sector eight endgame and the rebel fleet chasing you, and (when it deems your ship ready) replaces them with sector minibosses that can be almost as difficult as the rebel flagship. Each time you defeat one, it will provide you with a quest, the completion of which will yield you a unique weapon/augment/drone. There's much more to this mod, go check it out.

Serenity Mod: Pilot the Firefly class ship from the popular TV show

FTL Edit: A great tool for making your own ships

Grognak's Mod Manger: This is all you need to run the mods

Nice. I'll keep those in mind. I've been eyeing FTL for a while, and I think I might finally pull the trigger and get it tonight.

Oh man, thanks for this thread! I've had this game since release and haven't got to play it much for all the other games, I think the firefly mod and the infinite space mod sound awesome! Downloading them now...

thanks for this. I like ftl, but I feel like it misses the mark ever so slightly

I just got the game last weekend and have played 4 hours or so, I'll probably mess around with the vanilla version some more but some of those mods sound really interesting.

Thanks for the heads up

No problem!

The Starcraft conversion and Infinite Space are pretty wicked

I have to say that I love the infinite space mod, this is a fantastic addition. It actually gives you a damn good reason to explore every last point on a map! I can't seem to get the serenity plugin to work, but it may be because I have infinite space running at the same time?

Might have to check these out. I was quite enjoying FTL up until the point I reached the final boss, and then it just throws an enemy so many more times powerful than you can possibly be with the starter ship and random luck that it's horribly unfair. I did manage to finally beat it after several attempts, but the experience kinda put me off wanting to try and beat him again. So sounds like the Infinite Space mod would be a good one to try :)

Yeah, it's definitely worth checking out. There are mini-bosses that you will find occasionally and they will definitely lay you down if you aren't well geared and don't jump away in time. I haven't seen one nearly as tough as the main boss...yet.

That's great. I found the main game lacking for content and didn't know there were mods. The Infinite Space one looks like what I need.
