Probes should start out at your current location when launched

This idea came after reading, and the accompaning reddit thread at

Saving scan results is a great new feature. Right now when traveling through wormholes you always have to bookmark the hole you just entered from so you can find your way back home.

However, with scan results saving between sessions this isn’t 100% the case anymore. If you have scanned down the hole home you can warp to it without a bookmark.

It would be nice if after entering a hole you could launch your probes, then hit scan, and have the hole scanned down. However, this won’t work because probe scanners start at the sun.

Proposed change:
Have scanner probe start at your ships location when they are first launched.

This way you can get results for the hole you just jumped into without having to move your probes around.


Would this also work for more quickly combat probing people on grid with you? I don’t necessarily have a problem with that, however it’s something to keep in mind if you want to give this option of close proximity probing.

Yes plz! like they used to bring that ■■■■ back!

Very good idea
