Not able to scan
« on: July 12, 2005, 10:07:44 pm »


At the beginning of the game I went to earth, but it is not possible to scan the planet... I am able to enter the scan dialog, but cannot select "autoscan", "dispatch" etc... only "exit menu". Same problem with Uranus.

Can anybody help me? A Bug?

You can't scan through a slave shield.

Gas giants such as Uranus have no surface to land upon, so scanning them is pointless. 

Similarly, Earth is encased in a slave shield, which your lander cannot penetrate, and arguably, neither can your scanners.

This behaviour is not a bug, but what is odd is that none of this is mentioned in the f**king manual.  Suggestions for appropriate text are most welcome, I'm sure.
