I recently started to wonder about FTL mods. I wasn't able to find many, and honestly didn't try very hard either.
Luckily the Steam news feed brought the information straight to me! PC Gamer website has an article about what look like fun re-skin mods for the Kestrel and Engi ship, with references to more mod sources at the official forums.
I should see about getting some of this into the wiki somewhere.
Also, FTL is 40% off right now on Steam.Read more >
Our wiki seems to be out of touch with the FTL-playing community at large. As one player, I know I am. I visited the official forums about twice. It is less excusable for the wiki to be so detached.
We should start a section of the wiki to address more of the community around the game. For instance: what's the modding community like? After reading JAlbor's interview mention a modding community, I wanted to find out more. To my shame, one of the first Google results I found was at A completely different wiki!
We have links to a couple unofficial IRC channels on the main page, but what about Reddit/r/ftlgame? What about the Official Forums or Twitter? What about that other wiki?

Whether it's something trivial like the resale price of a weapon, a more moderate spoiler like the results of a Random Event, or a more extreme spoiler like something that only happens once in a profile like ship unlocking, the vast majority of the site is a spoiler. Because of this and the general spoiler disclaimer on the main page of the wiki, I feel that spoiler tags are redundant and useless in other pages.
They might want to be reserved for special circumstances, like the difficult events or challenges, but I'd appreciate if we could figure out a convention for this.Read more >
Hello FTL wikiers. I put in a request to become an admin of the FTL wiki. The original administrator hasn't been here since June, and we have a back-log of spam pages to get rid of and maybe some additions to the navigation menu.
Leave a comment here so the Wikia overlords know that I'm not a crazy Rebel.
Update: It's done. I made Muskar2 admin as well.Read more >
