Then fix the FSS keybind to enter it. That and switching from combat to discovery mode and you are in like Flint. There isn't a auto-initiate and you must intiate it with a single key or mouse stroke. You did that old routine through DW2? You never asked one of the other members of the expedition? Yeah, maybe I'm dense, but it still doesn't add up.If you read what I said initially , I`m not getting an option to enter fss scan mode in my command keys, just one to leave it. I jump in to a system , throttle to 0 , wait , maybe get a few bodies in the system pop up but the fss scanner doesn`t initiate. Gonging with the ADS will tell me how many bodies are in the orbital plane, but I`ll still get no visual on them on system map unless they`re really close.
EDIT. Apologies to you, Balky, you are not the original poster (thus my initial response) and that I didn't catch.
