So I just spent quite lot of ISK. I bought A PPH 2 (+10% scan strength), a PPF 1 (-6% scan deviation) and a few other bits.

To see just how much more awesome they would make my scanning I performed this test...

Scan with sisters core probes, get 5 results. Noted down scan strength.
Left them in space, docked up and plugged in the implants.
Undocked, reconnected to the probes and scanned again (with exactly the same placement and range), compared the results of each signal.

Every signal was lower. Each one by about 40%.

Of course, I can't repeat the test without removing the hardwires so this is only one observation. But I don't understand. They were the same sigs, scanned by the same probes in exactly the same place, only a minute or two apart, but the strength uniformly dropped after I upgraded.

Could it be a function of the decrease in deviation? As in, each signal is effectively made smaller as deviation lessens, so if you aren't in decent range it reads as weaker? I don't know. I don't understand the math.

But would someone plz explain? Cheers!

It's quite an assumption that the probes you left in space will update with your new skills, etc. when you reconnect. It sounds like they returned to base stats. Did you try launching new ones to approximately the same positions?

No I got in a huff and posted here... :p

Didn't think of that, sounds reasonable.

The "skills not applying to probes you reconnected to" bug exists since reconnecting to probes was introduced. By all appearances, CCP doesn't care and will never fix it.

You mean any time you reconnect to probes they will scan with base strength rather than with any skill/hardwiring modifiers?

Yeah, 'reconnect' could be exploitable. Its base purpose is to allow you to save your probes.
