Survey Probe changes

I like the trail effect on the (moon) survey probes after you launch them. My only real complaint...why is there such a small capacity limit and long reload on the probe launcher? You have more than enough time to reload the launcher during your trip between moons, so I would like to recommend that they get a capacity boost, of maybe 10x and then maybe reload time won't matter so much. You will still have cargo limitations, based on the various probe sizes, so I don't see the harm.

They do autoreload...it's just ridiculous that they don't fit more than 1-2...

You can get probe results from places like dotlan, but you don't know if it's accurate or not since you don't know who inputted the data. There are also problems of like was experienced in Providence where the pilots actually probing the moons were lying about what the contents of the moon were so even though the residents thought they had accurate scans of the region there were moons that hadn't been grabbed by the alliance even though they would be very valuable. Moon data is a decently guarded secret if they can manage it since if your enemies know where your R64 or other valuable moons are they know exactly which moons to hit to hurt you the worst.
