Has anyone had any problems scanning after the most recent update? Before, I could scan every signature down to 100% no problem. Now, I can't get above 85% on anything. What changed? Is there a document I can read somewhere that describes in detail what changes were made?

I appreciate the reply, unfortunately there is no mention of adjustments to scanning. But I assure you I am experiencing a drastic change. Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem.

There has been some weirdness reported about ship bonuses / skills not applying in the problems thread. They have not been confirmed yet, but it might be worth seeing if your probe strengths are not what you expect.

Otherwise, nothing has changed AFAIK and I'm scanning without issues too.

Scanned all day Sat with no issues. A lot of weak signals though.

Same here- weak signals. Still, no problem gettting to 100%. I was hoping that CCP made it a bit more difficult for low exploration skill characters.

Hmm, There may be some issue, I was out scanning in my Pilgrim and Helios, and I kept on noticing that my scanning didn't seem to be going any faster in my Helios despite its rather large bonuses, I even had to pull to the tightest range to get 100% on several sites, and I thought that was odd, I expect having to do that in my pilgrim, but not my helios.

But I never had a problem getting 100%

The changes make it advantageous to use as many probes as your skills allow.

The 4 probe method will work with high skills. The 5 probe method will work with slightly lower skills than 4 probes. However, if you're not using as many probes as your skills will allow you're wasting your own time because each probe now contributes to overall signal strength. So, if you can use 8 probes you should use 8 probes because it'll make your probe times shorter because you'll find the target faster than using only 4 or 5 probe.

I used 4 probes before the change. I now use 7 probes, the maximum number my skills allow.

I've had a few signatures I couldn't get to 100%, and I have previously never encountered this. I have all scanning skills maxed out, and I am flying a covert ops with grav mods. No idea whats up
