There are thousands of careful and moderate technical, contextual, and aesthetic fixes, adjustments, and additions, each one aimed at kicking your FTL space adventure into high gear.

Please see the KEY FEATURES or CHANGELOG sections below for more detailed contents listing, or jump right in and take FTL:SUPREMACY for a spin, to experience the modification first hand (recommended).

Enjoy, and thanks for playing!


KEY FEATURES

- Comprehensively overhauled and meticulously rebalanced game world, providing an extended and intensified FTL experience, yet strictly adhering to the game's original concept, style, canon, and lore.

- Every game aspect is adjusted for a novel gameplay balance, from player and NPC ship layouts, over equipment specifications, prices, and rarities, up to event chances, choices, and outcomes.

- Overall energy requirements for weapons and drones are decreased to facilitate heavier and better armament within the restrictions of generally rather limited available ship reactor power.

- Consumable resources like fuel, missiles, and drone parts are less expensive and more readily available throughout the galaxy, allowing further sector exploration as well as viable missile and drone use.

- Purchasing drone schematics as well as buying and upgrading drone control systems is less expensive, and drones are made more powerful in general, further incentivizing their more frequent utilization.

- Player and enemies / NPC share the same technology, with identical capabilities and restrictions (e.g. there are no longer enemy ships with five shield layers or ten weapon bars), for a bit more fairness.

- Fine-tuned sector compositions and properties, event occurrences and uniqueness, added events and event options, as well as delayed fleet pursuit provide new variety, challenges, and opportunities.

- A moderately extended arsenal of available ship equipment, with new weapons, drones, and an extra playable race; offering additional options in both player and NPC ship armament and crew compositions.

- Every weapon, drone, and augmentation is accessible via starting equipment of unlocked player ships, so unlocking all 28 playable ships also makes all equipment available and viewable in the hangar.

- The number of ship designs and layouts has been increased considerably (there are now over 300 unique ships in total) in order to provide more gameplay variety, i.e. in ship-to-ship battles.

- New hi-res deep space, planetary, and nebula backgrounds (30,000+ total); overhauled UI, ship, equipment, and visual effect graphics; extended crew customization; new and improved sound effects.

- Thousands of fixes, e.g. for erroneous events and event options, contextual inconsistencies, technical errors and bugs, audio-visual inadequacies, typos and grammar, other small shortcomings, etc.


REQUIREMENTS & INSTALLATION

- Requires FTL Faster Than Light (Advanced Edition) v1.6.12 for Mac, Linux, or Windows (for game information and purchase options, please visit Subsetgames.com).

- Fully localized for all ten available game languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Polish, Brazilian Portugese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese).

- Easy installation with latest release of the "Slipstream Mod Manager" utility (v1.9.1, included) by Vhati (for details, please visit Subsetgames.com).

KNOWN ISSUES

- Boarding, Ion Intruder, and Hacking drone flight animations repeatedly rotate / flip the drone image (bug in vanilla FTL).

- NPC ship escape time is irrespective of engine level / damage status, and either too fast or too slow (bug in vanilla FTL).

- Player Defense and Anti-Combat Drones are less effective in protecting the frontmost part of the ship (bug in vanilla FTL).

- Asteroid fields may cause severe game lag. Turning off dynamic backgrounds is the only workaround (bug in vanilla FTL).

- With dynamic backgrounds turned off (see above), planets may appear in front of asteroid fields (bug in vanilla FTL).

- On player ships with four drone slots, the game does not provide a keyboard shortcut for the fourth slot (game limitation).

- Player ships with two weapon slots have no Autofire button and must use the modifier key to auto-fire a weapon (game limitation).

- Level three Backup Battery provides six bonus power, which may lead to occasionally odd reactor status graphics (game limitation).

A little heads-up: In v1.0.0, the flagship on (AE) EASY mode erroneously had e.g. the drones and some other specs from (AE) HARD mode. This is now fixed in v1.0.1.

Enemy ships got buffed in v1.0.1 by giving them an additional energy bar across the board. The difficulty progression should be a lot more noticeable now, especially once you reach sectors 5 and up. I may buff them further, will do a couple of runs for testing (I usually only play on HARD).

It is highly recommended to max out exploring every sector to upgrade the ship as much as possible - the Rebel fleet pursuit is variable, meaning it is slowed down overall (randomized within predetermined limits for each sector type).

Here's a Let's Play of v1.0.1 found on YouTube:

When I get to the hangar page, all the ships have just the basic couple systems and no weapons or drones. Help?

Yes, the mod has changed quite a bit over time, especially since FTL kept getting updated again and again with many major changes. The latest release of this mod is yet another complete do-over I started from scratch. It is in many ways completely different from the early versions. Of course, personally I think the latest (v1.0.0) release is the best one, yet. :)
