Do you have to have a min of 4 probes to be able to warp to something you find? I've been trying to figure out probing and exploration, but I can only use 3 probes at the moment.

I found several signatures while scanning but best I could get was 94% on one of them, but I couldn't figure out how to warp to it. Do I have to get 100% signature and also need a min of 4 probes?

You need a 100% strenght signature to warp to it, and you need 4 probes to achieve that afaik.

With astrometrics 1, you can use 4 probes. Yes, you need all 4 at 100%, and it won't be warpable if your probes are too close to each other.

That's odd.. I have Astrometrics 3, but when I launch the 4th probe I don't get the little handels on it to move it around. It launches and just sits there, is there something I'm doing wrong?

btw when you say "too close to each other" what kind of range are we talking?

Actually I think it's that you can get 100% without 4 probes but you won't be able to warp to it.

Make sure you have not unticked the Active checkbox beside the probe in your scan window

It's entirely dependant on the range you've got the probes set scan at. If you're scanning down a site and you know there is only one site, you'll know this happens when you get 4 hits at exactly the same strength rather than showing a single result.

You'll have to play with it to get a feel for it.
