FTL: Faster Than Light is a procedurally generated roguelike game that has you captain a starship to its doom, repeatedly.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Revisional differences.
    • The event STORM_BOARDING was re-added at some point, previously removed.
  • Version differences (between desktop/iPad).
  • There are some ideas for events in comments spread throughout the event XML files. Are there any that were never implemented?
  • There may be more unused events or partially commented-out events that were missed.

Unused Events

General Unused Events
Several completely unused events, including ghosts..? Also includes leftovers from the original demo of the game.

Test Events
Events explicitly used for testing, including experimentation with integrating the names of crewmembers into events.

Partially Unused Events
Otherwise-used events that have unused commented-out sections.

Internal Species and Ship Names

Some of the internal names of the species and ship classes don't match their final, in-game names.

Species
Name Blueprint name Ship prefix
Human human fed
rebel
Engi engi circle
Mantis mantis mantis
Slug slug jelly
Rockman rock rock
Crystal crystal crystal
Zoltan energy energy
Lanius anaerobic anaerobic

The most notable things here are the Engi ("circle"), the Slugs ("jelly"), the Zoltan ("energy"), and the Lanius ("anaerobic"). The Lanius are also occasionally referred to as "Shrike", and, informally, "metal aliens". "The Shrike" is also the name of the Lanius Cruiser's 'B' layout. It is perhaps also worth mentioning that the Zoltan ships are still called 'Energy' in their class names in-game.

In addition to the differences in prefixes, some enemy ship classes also have differing internal names, perhaps most notably the Slug ships; the Slug Interceptor (jelly_button), the Slug Light-Cruiser (jelly_croissant), and the Slug Assault (jelly_truffle). These names were likely originally used as the actual class names, as evidenced by the unused "Truffle Wreckage" ghost ships, which use the Slug Assault layout.

Unused Achievement

They Should Really Have Spacesuits
Have 10 enemy crew die while suffocating by sector 5.

There is a commented-out achievement in achievements.xml, which was originally the Lanius Cruiser's third ship-specific achievement, and was replaced with the achievement 'Loss of Cabin Pressure'.

The Lanius Cruiser has a commented-out layout in dlcBlueprints.xml with the blueprint name PLAYER_SHIP_ANAEROBIC_3, though the actual room layout of the ship can no longer be found in the game's files. A comment above the blueprint says:

This is the original 1st version.  I replaced it with the U shaped ship with the inner ring of airlocks.  I'm 
keeping this in case we need another layout for now 

The "U shaped ship with the inner ring of airlocks" is Layout A of the Lanius Cruiser in-game, indicating that this was originally going to be Layout A.

Additionally, there are two 'ghost ships' in blueprints.xml (though these are commented out), GHOST_SHIP_MED and GHOST_SHIP_HARD, both with the class "Truffle Wreckage". They, like the impossible pirate, use the pirate version of the Slug Assault class (which was originally named the Truffle class). Neither of the ships have any crew, and hence would have operated similarly to automated ships. These ships were likely originally going to be used in the unused event GHOST_SHIP, which also made use of the removed 'ghost' species.

This unused drone type (BOSS_DEFENSE_2) appears to be a copy of an earlier version of the Defense Drone Mark II (or the duplicate of it which is used for enemies). The name of the blueprint would seem to imply that it would have been used by the Rebel Flagship; it isn't used in the final game. The above table only contains the properties that differ between the versions of the drone.

Comments in the blueprint for the used Defense Drone Mark II drone blueprints indicate that the cooldown of the drone was originally 750ms and the cost was originally 75, meaning that it is likely the only difference between the standard version and the boss version was the power requirement.

Unused Augments

Hmmm...
To do:
What are 'bp' and 'value'?

There are a number of commented-out ship augments in blueprints.xml, under various headings, a lot of which were never implemented. Furthermore, the ship-specific augment 'Titanium System Casing' was originally named 'Reinforced System Casing', and this name is still present, commented out.

Unused augments
Blueprint name Name Description Scrap cost BP Rarity Stackable? Value
Ship-specific augments
ADV_HULL_ARMOR Advanced Hull Plating State of the art hull armor provides a massive 25 percent chance to negate incoming hull damage (hit systems will still be damaged). 100 15 0 True 0.25
Standard augments
HULL_ARMOR Reinforced Hull Plating Superior hull armor provides a 15 percent chance to negate incoming hull damage (hit systems will still be damaged). 60 8 2 True 0.15

HEAT_RESIST Heat Resistant Suits Reduces damage crew takes from fire by 50% 70 2 False 0.5
BEAM_PIERCE Gives all beam weapons 1 shield piercing 80 2 False 1

The unused augment 'Reinforced Hull Plating' was modified slightly and re-used as the ship-specific 'Rock Plating' augment:

Blueprint name Name Description Scrap cost BP Rarity Stackable? Value
ROCK_ARMOR Rock Plating Superior hull armor provides a 15 percent chance to negate incoming hull damage (hit systems will still be damaged). 80 8 0 False 0.15

Two of the commented-out "other ideas" ('Integrated Flight Suits' and 'Missile Replication System') were implemented in FTL: Advanced Edition, with slight differences:

Blueprint name Name Description Scrap cost BP Rarity Stackable? Value
O2_MASKS Emergency Respirators Crew take half damage from low oxygen. 50 8 2 False 0.5
EXPLOSIVE_REPLICATOR Explosive Replicator Missile based weapons have a 50 percent chance of not using a missile. 60 8 3 False 0.5

Unused Graphics

Trader Map Box

FTL-map box trader.png

An unused map pointer that says "TRADER". Internally, "TRADER" generally refers to events that give the player a single trade/exchange offer, as opposed to an actual store interface. These events can't be returned to, and are not marked on the map.

Help Screen Overlays

Hmmm...
To do:
Are you sure these aren't used?
DesktopiPad

Ship Challenge

FTL-challenge bar.png
FTL-challenge star.png

There are textures relating to a "ship challenge" stored with the hangar textures.

color_kestrel_1

FTL-color kestrel 1.png
This small icon is also stored with the hangar textures. There aren't corresponding ones for any other ship.

Null Resource

This texture is likely used if a texture is missing.

FTL-s weapons2 grey2.pngFTL-colorblind-s weapons2 green2.pngFTL-s weapons2 orange2.pngFTL-s weapons2 red2.png

There are octagonal versions of the weapons system icon present alongside the ones which are used. Octagonal icons (as opposed to round icons) are used for subsystems.

These icons also have seperate versions for the game's colorblind mode, though, unlike with the other originally-green icons, the green icons here have not been changed to white, and, indeed, appear to be duplicates of the original two green icons.

Scrap Cursor

Unused Sounds

Hmmm...
To do:
More comparisons with used sounds, where appropriate.

Most of the game's sound files are prefixed with 'bp' (or for Advanced Edition sounds, 'AESFX' or 'FTLX'), likely referring to Ben Prunty, who did the game's music, and, seemingly, much of the sound design. However, there are also quite a few sounds without a prefix, mostly in WAV format (unlike the 'bp' sounds, which are OGG files), which are seemingly older and which are mostly unused.

aliens/

bp_SFX_MantisFight.ogg

explosions/

bp_hit_hull_3.ogg

There is a hitHull3 tag in data/sounds.xml, though for some reason it just uses bp_hit_hull_2.ogg again, instead of this sound.

explosion_lofi_med2.wav

explosion_lowfi_block1.wav

explosion_lowfi_block2.wav

explosion_lowfi_long1.wav

explosion_lowfi_small1.wav and explosion_lowfi_small1.ogg

This file has an OGG version, which seems to imply that this was replaced later than the others. There are a few other prefixless WAV sound files which have used OGG versions (not documented here).

explosion_lowfi_small2.wav and explosion_lowfi_small2.ogg

This file also exists as both a WAV and an OGG.

hit1.wav

hit2.wav

hitshieldb1.wav

hitshieldb2.wav

hitshieldb3.wav

shieldsdown1.wav

This file is identical to the file 'shield_down1.wav' in the 'ship' directory (see below), a modified version of which is used in-game. The reason that this file is in the 'explosions' directory isn't apparent.

ship/

bp_door_close_1.ogg

This file is identical to 'bp_door_close.ogg' in the 'ui' directory. Neither are used.

shield_down1.wav
shield_down1.ogg

The used (OGG) version of this sound cuts a small part of the start of the original (WAV) sound. As mentioned above, 'shield_down1.wav' is identical to 'shieldsdown1.wav' in the 'explosions' directory.

ui/

bp_alarm_1.ogg

This particular sound has a commented-out tag in sounds.xml, evidencing that it was replaced with the sound 'warning3.ogg'.

bp_alarm_2.ogg

bp_alarm_3.ogg

bp_door_close.ogg

The file 'bp_door_open.ogg' is used for both the opening and closing of doors. As mentioned above, this file is identical to 'bp_door_close_1.ogg' in the 'ship' directory.

Missing Kickstarter Backer Names

The file names.xml defines the lists of names that are used for crewmembers (and enemy crewmembers), including the names of those who pledged over $100 to the game's Kickstarter, and thus had their names added to the crew roster. There is, however, a comment at the top of the section of the file with the backer names, with the following:

Missing:
	$100
	Chase Cagle
	
	$500
	Steve Swink

These names are indeed missing from the list of possible names.
