For those...probing the internet for cool stuff to read today, probe no further. CCP Tuxford is here to tell you all about the upcoming improvements to probe scanning in the soon-to-be-released Odyssey 1.1.

We will of course be...probing this thread for feedback so don't be shy!

I approve of these changes.

Does this mean I can ping any wt/pimp ship as they exit the station and then just hunt down that signature even after it left the system?
#4 - 2013-08-22 16:37:29 UTC
Good changes, thanks.

Will there be any bug fixes in this iteration, in particular, the bug where none of the probe spheres are visible?

No the signatures have not changed, just the information of the group/type being retained by the UI.

You are referring to the Mac OSX client right? I will see if I can find out if our Mac partner Transgaming has the fix in this client. (You can also try out Singularity)

works pretty much the same way as always except you no longer have to note down the signature. I belief the itemID to signature is a unique mapping with no random element so yes you probably could but then again you always could have done that. It's just a little easier now

This is pretty cool. Thanks.

But...

Cosmic Anomalies and Cosmic Signatures are no longer removed from results

These results used to be populated when you entered the system and when you started scanning we would only show the ones which the probes were in range of. This was a bit odd behavior since you could get those results back by re-logging or jumping in and out of the system.


Does this mean there'll be annoying big red bubbles from un-scanned sigs each pass until everything is scanned down?

I'm weird, I hate red bubbles is all.

Well I could if I had 10.8. The bug only appears on users of 10.8. Its just that our IT department is slowly pushing out 10.8 to the Mac users and I might get it any day. And when I do it would be nice if this bug was fixed.

Also, I just do not like the idea of other users having to deal with bugs.

Edit: The keeping of information will be quite nice. When I explore I bypass wormhole sites. As soon as I get sufficient strength to see its a WH, I move on to the next signal. It will be nice for the game to remember which sites Ive scanned out to WHs for me.

I use to drive a Ford "Probe". Nice torque on the transmission. Looking forward to this.

The signatures in the map only appear if you have them selected in the probe scanner results, just select the signatures you are interested, or ignore sigs you do not care about.

Tuxford! F#@$yeah!

P.S. you're still my favorite dev (sorry guard)

Where are the custom formations saved? If I make a super awesome set of 4 custom formations, do I have to manually reproduce them for anyone else who wants them?

Random thought: would it be possible to allow the formations or overview settings to be saved as in game items like bookmarks?

I really, really hate the idea of saving information as items. I do agree with the ability to share stuff with your fellow pilots but I don't think items is a convenient way to do it. These are saved locally and not in any nice format you can easily import or export sadly.

1. CCP Guard you should be ashamed of that pun!


2. Does this mean if I scan a signature to see its type, leave the system, and come back, the signature will still show its type?

So, placing the Veldnaught behind a bush will no longer work?

Looks good, +1 for coming through with promises to add custom formations and keep improving. Probing is in good shape.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.
