You can swap your FTL saves from your PC and Mac to iPad if you're willing to engage in some computer wizardry

If you're desperate to get your PC or Mac save onto the iPad version of FTL: Faster Than Light then the good people over at the Stack Exchange Q&A forum have got your back.

It's a slightly complex procedure involving downloading a programme to your PC or Mac that lets you poke around in your iPad, then swapping some save files around, renaming them, and hoping the whole thing doesn't end catastrophically badly.

You can see a much better walk through of the procedure than the one provided above by clicking right here.

Joystiq has run the process
, and it seemed to turn out okay. Apparently it'll take you about ten minutes.

Obviously, back everything up before you start sticking things where they ought not to go, and don't throw rocks at Pocket Gamer's half-built space exploration office craft if you end up losing all of your FTL data.
