In FTL, some beacons have some of the following "environmental/special effects":
- Asteroid Field
- periodically an asteroid "attacks" yours and the enemy ships - causing 1 damage
- Ion Storm
- half available reactor power (removed randomly if in use)
- Too Close to the Sun
- periodically the sun flares causing random fires on yours and the enemy ships
- Planetary Defence Cannons
- periodically the planet's weapons fire into space against yours or the enemy ships, maybe both
- Ion Event
- random amount of ion damage is applied to several systems on yours and the enemy ships
Not sure of the names for #4 and 5 (both added with Advanced Content).
Does anyone have more specific information about these beacon modifiers (or any I have missed)?
- How often does each happen?
- How much damage does each do (where applicable)?
- Anything else of note?
