I’m trying to figure out what’s going on here, but a google isn’t helping me.
I’m working on a couple of the minmatar corporation standings and I regularly get sent to the Ammold system, but I’ve noticed that salvage seems to be despawning in this system. It’s only this system. I did a few tests last night; I had D-scan open and was constantly re-scanning out to maximum distance. I didn’t have an MTU out to make it easier to scan down where I was, I was in a Stabber FI and I didn’t see any combat probes so I’m reaonably certain no one was scanning me down.
Every time I came back to those sites, some of them were within 10 minutes of finishing a mission, there were either noticeably less wrecks than when I bookmarked it or none at all. As far as I understand it, those wrecks shouldn’t be disappearing within that time frame unless someone else was salvaging the wrecks, but that wouldn’t account for the sites that have about 50% of the wrecks that were there when I bookmarked it. I mean, why would you only salvage 1/2 of the wrecks at 3 different sites?
So, is there some despawning mechanic I’m missing here? It doesn’t happen in any other system regularly enough for me to actual test if I’m being scanned down while doing my missions.
