I salvage exclusively using drones. It’s just much easier than chasing down wrecks.
I have Salvage Drone Operation skill trained to level 3 so far:
Skill at controlling salvage drones. 2% increased salvage chance per level.
I have the Poteque Salvaging Implant SV-905:
A neural Interface upgrade that boosts the pilots exploration skills.
5% increase in chance of salvage retrieval.
From what I see the Implant does not appear to affect Salvaging Drones:
Is this a bug or as it’s intended to be? Using a Salvage Drone should be no different than using a Salvage module IMO.
