I completely agree about the package description. It is now fixed. hib-dlagend support is also added, but I did not test it. Let me know if there are any problems.

I'll add my voice requesting hib-dlagent support as well as a description that contains "Faster Than Light". It threw me off for a minutes when searching for "faster than light" didn't bring up this package.

@derhamster: Also, consider changing pkgdesc to something like:
"FTL: Faster Than Light, a spaceship simulation real-time roguelike-like (requires full copy of the game)"

In cases where the software's full name is not contained in pkgname, it should be added to pkgdesc (to make it easier for users to search and identify packages).

Isn't convenience the whole point of having an AUR package?

Anyways, theres no need to include the whole comment block and DLAGENT override that J0k3r suggested, if you don't want to - that's just an extra courtesy to new users.

Just adding the following to the source array would suffice:

(Actually you could even remove the file:// entry now, since that is now technically obsolete - because even with the hib:// protocol, makepkg will still fall back to looking for the file in the PKGBUILD folder.)

I'd like to keep this package simple. Is there any other benefit besides convenience when I add hib-dlagent support? Downloading the file manually is not that hard.

( you could also download it before via hib-dlagent, because they used the humble store as their retail platform )

use this for hib-dlagent:

As it have been released in the Humble indie bundle 9, you could add a source from hib::/

I finally managed to update this. Sorry it took me so long.
@J0k3r: Thank you for contributing; I merged some of your changes to the PKGBUILD.
