Game Hints

Good way to level shield skill

To be able to level the shield skill more early, make sure you power off the shield's subsystem and then power it back up within a fight with an enemy. You will get exp eachtime the shields power on and you're able to get maximum shield level much early in the game with doing this.

Destroy an enemy's weapons to save your own health, then take out their shields when you are ready to defeat them. Fire at their engines to prevent them from escaping.

Keeping Ion Shields intact

When you are being attacked by an Ion weapon, drop your shields to prevent them from losing power. Hopefully the shot will hit a less essential or empty area.

Various Gameplay Tips

  • Tip 1: When you have a weapon that is unable to damage an enemy ship's hull and are safe, keep firing at it to increase your crew's experience. Disable your opponent's engines first to maximize the time you can fire at them.
  • Tip 2: Enable your cloaking device when your enemy shoots, whether they can damage you or not. This will allow you to gain skill by dodging.
  • Tip 3: Carefully time and cycle your shields during combat to increase experience for the crew member operating the shields.
  • Tip 4: If you are attacked by an enemy that cannot penetrate your shield, do not destroy them. Remain idle to gain experience for your engine, pilot and shield crew.
  • Tip 5: If you enter combat in an asteroid field, do not jump out after destroying the enemy ship. Remove your pilot to drop your evasion to 0% and allow the asteroids to hit your shield. This will increase the crew member operating the shields to gain experience.
  • Tip 6: Note: This can only be done in the unpatched version of the game. Power off the shield's subsystem then power it back up during an enemy battle. You will gain shield experience each time the shield powers on.
