Did you accidentally leave an airlock open? Or leave one open on purpose to fight a fire, but forget to close it again?

The times I've most seen this are when I hit an ion storm and it turns off half my systems, then I forget to send the power back when I return to normal space.

Yeah, that and the enemy ship that cuts off your O2. During the ion storm when the ship loses half its power you think the last system it would automatically turn off would be the oxygen. I usually don't notice until my rooms start to turn pink.

I've had that happen to me so many times... I cruise out of the ion storm, and a few jumps later, I'm sitting there wondering what the heck happened to my O².
I too fail to notice it until my crew's hearts are all aflutter. XD

Started recently. Still working on beating Easy for the first time. 7 Crew in Sector 3, with good Kestrel B. Looking good.

Be wary, my friend. It's when everything is looking good that the game'll hit you the hardest.

And it did. I got taken down in Sector 8 by a random Rebel Scout because I didn't switch over to my better weapons, and was conserving ammo.

Beat it on easy last night with a Kestrel B crew.

Spoiler:

Got up to 6-7 crew quickly and was lucky enough to get a Crystal crew member. Not lucky enough to get to the Crystal Homeword and unlock the ship. But I was able to beat the final boss. Was a near thing. I didn't kill all the crew in stage 1, so in stage 2 I had to make careful use of the Crystal guy's ability and use Hull Repair drone to help out during Stage 2 surges.

i'm gonna give up on this game. Again i died because of no o2. I'm madly clicking on the fully powered o2, jump to a different zone, open the doors. nothing, just watch them all die. i was doing well to.

It's weird that you guys have so many oxygen problems. I've never had any that I couldn't explain.

Take a screen shot of what it looks like. I am sure someone here can tell you what is happening.

Agreed. We can sanity check you, and if it's a weird bug we can all agree!

Nothing like lucking into a couple free Rockmen and a shop that has a teleporter for sale... only for your next three battles to be automated scouts.

hbi2k, the good thing about Rockmen is their hp, so send them over into the automated scouts to wreck stuff. Your teleporter will spool up again before they die.

(Don't try if it has a cloaking device)

You can do that with any race of crew if you use higher level teleporters. With level 3 you can always pull them out of a fight before they die. That won't stop random chance or stupidity from finishing them off however. I once lost two mantidae when I pulled them out of a fire and a missile hit the teleporter room the instant they got back.

Oh! That happened to me once. Full melee skill in sector 7.

First time I ever seriously almost threw a mouse.

How is it there's still no new goodies for this game. Are they working on something else? If its anything short of FTL 2, color me disappointed.

Damn, just had my best run ever in the slug ship. Picked up the perfect combination of weapons, tossed on a couple defense drones and I kicked the boss' ass! I didn't take a single point of damage in phase 1 or 2. Took some damage in phase 3, but only because my breach bomb missed the boss' missile launcher 7 times in a row! Man, if I'd got a bit luckier with the breaches, I might have killed the boss without taking a scratch. Oh well, still awesome!

Wow, the Infinite Space mod is awesome, and awesomely difficult. I have yet to make it out of the second sector!

Cool article about the success story of FTL over at Polygon.

So just after the 300 hour mark, I have finally unlocked the Crystal ship. I also unlocked Rock B on the same run. Freaking luck.

Hooray! The Crystal ship B and Rock B are my two favorite ships in the game.

I got rock A last night and now I fell insignificant again. Really liked the loom of the layout though! Much venting of rotters to commence.

Quintuple post!

Urgh. Stupid Crystal ship. Got the Crystal crew member all un-statised yesterday, plus Long Range Sensors so I could beeline for the non-Distress, non-Ship-Detected systems, and still had three more red sectors to go before the final battle, so I was optimistic that one of them would turn out to be the Rock Homeworld, but nope. Nothin' doin'.

Gee wiz, I get it, you got the Rock A ship and I still haven't! Stop rubbing it in!!

C-c-c-c-combo breaker!
