Archives » Prospecting an area more than once?
Vor Kaln

Apologies if this is covered elsewhere (I couldn't find the answer):

If say you had CompOps 5 and a full squad of Hogs - you prospect and find No Deposit, is it worth while re-prospecting the same area a second or more times to increase your chances?



No. Prospecting is a threshold value system - if you are unsuccessful with your current sensor/comops values, increase them and try again, otherwise move on. Further scanning just wastes time and money.

I can't remember where but I thought I read that you can reprospect once per month?

You can reprospect as often as you want, however it doesn't mean you get a better (or new) chance of finding a deposit, unless you use more sensors or a better CompOps skill to reprospect.

Thanks to all. I've heard of some guys that are double-prospecting each area and I wanted to make sure it is unnecessary (or nothing had changed recently).
