Tip Of The DAY: Stay focused.

Many people complain that they can't find anything but worm holes. Why to scan something what you can't run (combat plex for example) or not worth the time?

If you are on radars roaming, only radars should be your top priority.

Scanning process of every signature has 3 key points.

25% - tells you Group of the signature. Radar, Ladar, Gravimetric or Unknown. Unknown can be WH or combat plex, including DED rated plex.

75% - tells the Type of signature. It actually name of site. For example it can show up as Group: "Radar", Type: "Local Guristas Shattered Life-Support Unit". It is up to you if you want to scan it to 100%. Personally, I do not do it if I don't have ship or friend or nobody in local I may ask for help . It is nice to scan Unknown to 75% to see it is Guristas Scout Outpost. But what next? It rather disappointing fact than good result if you cant run it.

100% - you can bookmark this signature and warp to the location. You can get it only with 4 probes. Even you put probe perfectly on top of signature, u will get only 99,99%.

Note: Anomalies, in difference, can be scanned with 1 probe and givers 100% on the first scan.

So, exclude signatures not interested to you from the scanner list as soon as you can determinate the Group.





Once you "Ignore Result", but want to get back to this signature again, u need to doc, or reenter system via gate, or log off/log in to clear ignore list.

Sometimes you never notice or find things floating at surface, but eventually someone shows you how obvious it is:

Not completely true, you are able to click the arrow next to where your filter says "Signatures" then either clear all ignored, or select one from the drop down list

  2. By the time you've scanned it to 50%, you may as well scan it to 100%.

    This also doesn't help when all you get is shit wormholes.

  3. Anomalies don't need probes at all.
