Thread: 2.3 exploration payouts + visual guide

    2.3 exploration payouts + visual guide

    Welcome CMDRs.

    I present to you my visual giude to exploration containing all the body types
    and their general worth when scanned with ADS+DSS, ADS or just "honked".
    All the data was taken from 2.3 beta.




    [edit] - sorry got wrong values for terr. rocky - fixed
    btw - why it shows the image twice? or is it just me?
    whatever - first one is good.

    Hope you all find it usefull.
    CMDR Fru.

    Nice one. Wanted an updated one

    Oh, thanks! That looks very handy, especially that you included the "just honked" price too.

    However, I think the prices might need some adjustments. Are these single examples, or an average produced from several ones? Because I'm fairly certain some of them can go above what you listed, like ELW-s or MR-s. For example, you've listed those metal rich worlds as "65,045", but according to this list, they can easily go for 81k. Also from there, ELW can go up to 716k.

    Oh, and not to nit-pick, but are you sure that the fifth planet under the Earth-like world category was Earth-like? Looks like a cloudy WW or perhaps HMCP to me, but I might be wrong.

    Also, minor typo in the top right: "Visual giude"

    Thanks for sharing

    It seems in 2.3 one trip will be enough to earn more money that i will ever need Not sure i am happy with this change

    I was about to update my own cheat sheet, more focused on the holo-icons than the system map representation. I'm still evaluating sources for the new 2.3 values. Would you mind if I used your values (duly credited of course)?

    Absolutely - especially the higher values need to have ranges.

    Holy cow, should work this into a sticky. Let me see what I can do. NICE JOB

    Go to Epsilon Indi, and planet New Africa and you'll see an ELW like that. Very thick watery atmospheres.

    Isn't the plural of body 'bodies'? Saying respectfully, as I appreciate the time and effort.

    Ah, I see: it's one of those terraformed worlds that aren't procedurally generated, and where planetary parameters can be out of bounds compared to proc. gen. "natural" Earth-like Worlds. In this case, it's the surface pressure, at 5.49 atm. I never really looked at terraformed worlds before, hence why I didn't recognize that one as such.

    I am afraid I do not understand the difference between a "honk" and an ADS scan. I though using the discovery scanner actually was the "honk".

    Could someone explain it to me, please?

  12. #12
    I think by ADS Fru meant the basic close-up scan when you don't have a DSS. The ADS scan is the honk indeed.

  13. #13
    Yep. Another term would be: detailed scan (with DSS) / scan (without DSS) / honk.
    It's nice to see that for valuable planets, having a DSS gives an even larger bonus than it did before.

    Amazing work - thanks for the effort and the time you took to put it all together. Much appreciated!

    Thanks. It makes sense now.
