Watching the discovery scanner in action

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

That gas still hasn't gone yet. I bet that extra signature in the home system is more gas, just to prolong my discomfort. Or maybe it's a second wormhole, a K162 from class 2 w-space that will have a second static connection to high-sec empire space. That's a decent option, ...

Low, low, low

Monday, September 1st, 2014

It's still just me and gas. I can't quite manage to release it from my system. That makes our home system closed, though, but without any good anomalies popped up, I'm out of here just as soon as I find our static wormhole. I warp to yesterday's bookmark on a ...

Seeing orange in low-sec

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

It's just me, a pocket of gas, and our static wormhole to start off the evening. There are also a couple of good anomalies, double what we had yesterday. I am tempted to leave them another day, see if they turn in to four for tomorrow, but I like keeping ...

Dying wormholes end scouting

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

The previous sites have gone, two new signatures and two good anomalies have appeared. Can I clear the anomalies, and maybe get closer to ending my cathartic analysis of Oblivion, or do we have an extra wormhole? Scanning resolves a pocket of gas, one wormhole, and a second wormhole. Oblivion ...

Another shot at a Noctis

Friday, August 29th, 2014

I locate the tower as the nanite paste repairs the remaining heat damage on my modules. As it turned out, I didn't need to overheat my guns to pop the salvager and the silly mobile tractor unit that stole my plunder, but I couldn't have known that in advance. There ...

Two stabs at bagging some plunder

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

That's a lot of signatures. Sure, it's the same number as yesterday, but still. It's a lot of signatures. There's even a new anomaly, my favourite type in the home system, and I think I'll clear it of Sleepers to rake in some ISK. I scan and resolve today's static ...

Almost finding activity

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

It's time to investigate some wormholes. Having successfully ignored a tower trap, my Proteus strategic cruiser is still in one piece and able to reconnoitre through one of two K162s in this class 5 w-space system. One leads to more class 5 space, the other to deadly class 6 w-space. ...

Turning away from a trap

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

No anomalies have sprung up overnight, but four new signatures accompany our static wormhole this evening. They can't all be sites, surely, and I launch probes to scan them hopefully. Then again, an initial blanket scan, which I find to be a good security precaution, shows that two signatures are ...

It's referred to as the scanner overlay and not the 'discovery' scanner for good reason

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Another day absent, even more anomalies brazenly stolen from us. This is an outrage! The perpetrators really ought to have dumped a container with 30% of their plunder at our tower, just as a basic nicety for taking advantage of our system. I normally do, or try to, or maybe ...

Flashing a Mackinaw

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

I just want to check through a K162 before potentially plunging down a long chain of w-space systems, particularly when the discovery scanner will be a mere half-step behind with each jump. I exit the class 6 system to return to our neighbouring class 3 w-space, and warp across to ...
