Just on the subject;
While I use Scouts + Macros + Sensor pack for the hunting, I've found that the Scouts should be personally
owned, and that you can then "Friend" factions etc. so that the sensors are properly shared. If the Scout is Faction-owned, and you happen to be in a NAT, you're SOL for sharing sensors.
Also, passing on a tip from Az: The NPC-Shop K4 droids are cheap, so it's possibly more economical (especially come full-on combat when your scouts will be killable) to just buy a bunch of them, carry them around Crated, and dump them around a few empty slabs you'll bounce between.
14,008 each, sensor range would be 3 (cause no perception), so you'd need ohhh... 16? to fully cover it. Maybe less if you take more time to finegle the sensors. Like 225k per slab.
Also: Sensor Calc Google Sheet
Just does the one sensor vision right now, so you'd need to do the overlaying yourself elsewhere.
