Default Squishy the Bug

Ghastly Gnat bought it at level 30, by running into one of Vex's missiles and suffering 745 damage. I never got around to taking its screenshot.

So I started its successor: Squishy the Bug

Squishy the Bug has not been squished yet. I found a shockwave and a laser with decreased energy consumption, and I spent a ton of credits with Lithosoid to get a strong armor.

Squishy defeated a level 38 Aurora at level 34, so it's a relatively tough nut to break... for a Command 0 ship.

Default Squishy made level 50.

The biggest change from a few levels ago is that I replaced the second power plant with a second armor. The latest patch has restricted scavenger components, so that there is no longer a way for Squishy to quickly repair armor. So I decided to get a greater reserve of hit points, at the expense of energy regeneration.

I have been very lucky with crew. I have a few generalists who nicely cover Structure, Computers and Engineering, but more important yet, I have two combat specialists with over 100% criticals.

Talking Woohoo! I've gotten aboard the IotA party!

The Scavenger Ships are sweet looking thus far! (Thus far, up to the Light Titan.)

This is my new Scavenger Borg, as of the end of the 1st Challenge Sector & ready to move on to the 2nd Challenge Sector.

Also... Screenie of close-up of the Scavenger Light Titan for anyone wondering if the Scavenger Ships look any good or not. ^_^

Edit: Made it up to the Light Flagship & beyond now! ^_^ This Ship is so big, I had to take the Screenie from one Zoom Out away from Maximum Zoom In to catch it all!

Nice. I did not even remember you could zoom in and out. I disabled that option a long time ago. Thanks for reminding me!

By the way, I sure hope you are keeping an armored cover on the [3] key. Or you have blow yourself up at least once when you meant to launch a fighter with [2].

I have my Mouse Wheel set for scrolling the Right Click Slots, & during the rare time I have a reason to Zoom In & Out, I can easily enough use the Page Up/Page Down Keys for that.

& surprisingly, i've accidentally blown myself up through fatfinger only once or twice, total throughout my Drox Life. The most recent time was when I accidentally hit 3 instead of 2 while meaning to pop out more Fighters as I was IDing & sorting & such through my Inventory dealing with recently looted loot.

Oh, speaking of which, sidenote: I've discovered that Missile Defense Systems work at trying to defend ya from enemy missiles even while you're in your Escape Pod! Sweet! ^_^ The Flak kind of Missile Defense Systems suck, but the rest of them are totally useful & worth it now, especially the Directed Radiation ones!

Borg's grown quite a bit... now that this Thread is moving again, I oughta Screenie a Status Report. He's fast approaching the Heavy Flagship Model. ^_^

Edit: Objective Met. Here's how Borg is doing thus far.

Default Squishy made level 65.

Squishy's still not dead. Lithosoid has been present in most of the latest sectors, so I have have been able to upgrade the armor periodically. There have been some close calls, mostly when multiple monsters have turned into Gleria at once.

There's not much that's different. Laser and shockwave, as much armor as I can afford, plus a power plant and a computer to make it all work. The shockwave, in conjunction with the energy leecher, probably generates more energy than the power plant.

Isn't being able to use a component without the requirements an exploit? I'd like to know the most powerful build without having to exploit.
