comment What's the objective in Adventure Mode (inside Maxwell's Door)?
@rlb.usa, I was under the impression that you can't take anything with you when you go through Maxwell's Door, except special character items like Lucy.

comment Will Touchstones be wasted if I touch more than one before death?
By the way, it's not a bad idea to drop some grass and logs at a Touchstone. When you respawn, you'll have no inventory at all, and if it's the middle of winter, you might well freeze and then die a second time before you can get back to your base. So leave at least enough materials to make a fire.

comment How do the new door levels correspond to the old ones?
@ChrisLee, that doesn't answer the question I'm asking.

comment How do I deal with hacking drones?
However, be cautious. Hacking their hacking system can potentially blow up their hacking drone...which can then fire again, onto a more damaging part of your system.

comment How can I beat the final boss in Faster Than Light?
Alas, in the Advanced Edition, the laser and missile rooms are now connected to the rest of the ship, which makes taking out its weapons with boarders a lot harder than it used to be. (Or so I assume; I didn't even try.)

comment Game Over if all crew dead but have cloning bay?
I've found the same thing to be true. Gotta take out that clone bay, or the battle never ends.

comment How does sector 8 work?
Surprisingly, after several ignominious deaths in Normal mode, I made it through in Hard mode with the Mantis B. I think it's because I was excessively cautious the whole time. Grinding beacons and finishing out the sector on a Rebel-controlled beacon or two isn't a very viable strategy anymore.

comment Can random events kill your last remaining crew member?
Not only can events kill your last remaining crew member, but you can off him/her yourself through dumb decisions. In one game, facing a slaver ship, I only had one crew member, but I decided to offer a crew member to the slaver just to see what would happen. Well...just what did I think would happen? The crewman went over to the slavers, and as my ship had no more crew, my game immediately ended.

comment What is up with these pigs?
The warrior pigs by the torches are great for helping out with hounds, though. Just lead the hounds near them and let the pigs do the rest. The nice thing is that the torches are such a good light source, it works at any time of day.

comment How to destroy AI ships without weapons?
@ZanLynx, it's a programming bug. No, not in the game, but in the code written by the rebels who programmed the automated ships. That's why you can't let the rebels win. Bad programming would flood the galaxy!

@ZanLynx, maybe that's precisely why it doesn't bother to repair them.

comment How to destroy AI ships without weapons?
@ShivanDragon, that wasn't because they didn't have autorepair. It was because your boarding drone landed in the weapons bay, causing a breach. In repair order, fixing a breach always happens before fixing a system. But AI ships can't repair breaches, so they'll never be able to repair a system in a room with a breach.
