Hi everyone, Fen Muir here.
I started a LP of Starsector, and I've been having a good time with it.
The videos are on average an hour long, and it seems I've already had a Starsector veteran come by.
I try to upload at least a video once per day.

I have four LPs of Starsector for your enjoyment:

Enjoy.

Welcome to the forum! I'll have to check your videos out, I'm always looking for things to watch while cooking. If you haven't already, you can advertise your stream/videos in the unofficial discord in addition to here; there's a channel devoted to it that gets a moderate amount of views in my experience.

Hello everyone
So an update: I started "Big Ship Energy" where I use almost exclusively phase ships, and it is really fun. Much of the learning curve was taken care of in the original LP on the channel and The Freighter Prince.

I will say that playing phase ships is a lot more fun.

I did notice that the AI tends to be terrible at piloting phase ships.

I'm mostly using Steady officers. Is Reckless better for phase ships?

Big Ship Energy is already longer in terms of recorded footage than the original LP, so give it a watch: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDjE6j_BlALhpz39_WUn-ZVnNuQfPNH-_

Aggressive or Reckless officers are deadly on phase frigates, Afflictors ideally.
Dooms will start to get in each other's way with phase mines when you use a bunch of them. I would use Steady officers here.
Will check out your LP!

Starsector is absolutely spaceship mount and blade - that's how you hook people! It's not a bad thing to make the comparison.

I'm going to swap out my steady officers for aggressive officers for the small ships.

Hi everyone!
I added Whiskey Tango to the list of LP's. Its episodes will come interspersed with Big Ship Energy.

Many of the mistakes of previous LPs should (may) be worked out here as I make bad decisions about where to place colonies.

So, what is Whiskey Tango?
We're basically drug runners. We set up a colony in owned space under a commission, act like Daddy Hegemony's perfect boy, and then we start dealing space heroin. Hijinks ensue after we end our commission.
