Does Scan deviation effect initial signiture position?

Yeah, so, does scan deviation affect the initial placement of unscanned signatures making them more accurate to start off or does it only make a difference when you use probes?

Great question, gonna tag this because I'd like to know as well.

Also curious if certain levels of Astrometric Acquisition are basically worthless due to server tick rounding.

My impression over time has been that the initial positions are correct and deviation only comes into play when you start to scan. I have no energy to verify this, though the methodology is pretty clear -- midwarp bookmarks until you're nearly on top of the position of the unscanned sig and then drop probes and see how close you were. Sounds like a pita but it would be interesting.

Max Deviation = (Scan Range/Base Scan Range) × Base Maximum Deviation × (1 − Pinpointing Skill/10)

The deviation is the distance between the scan result shown on the map and the actual location of your target.



i don't know how to read!
but i may guess that scan deviation affect the probes, aka when you scan the signature with them
NOT the initial signature position showed on map

Question :thinking: Question :thinking: (again) Question

Deviation is a value that shows how far from initial scan result will be.

The better the skills the smaller deviation will be.

Deviation is fixed by scan range, skill level and scan strenght.

It's how it suppose to be because I don't get the formula from uniwiki.

It's where the result be after the scanning not before.
