Gotcha. I misunderstood that the discovery scanner was a ‘default functionality’ rather than a module you have to install, I get it now.
I guess it doesn’t matter too much if it’s just one trip - but here’s what the capacity is at the moment:
3 x class 4-slots, 3 x class 2-slots + the planetary approach suite.
In order to fit the discovery scanner, I pretty much have to dump the fuel scoop. Are we going far?
if I drop one cargo rack, I can fit a collection limpet also, but then I’ll only have 16 slots / tons of cargo space rather than 32 if I do.
Edit: It actually does look like they’ve integrated the advanced discovery scanner into every ship, if I read the forums correctly. Might explain why none of the stations where I’ve looked seem to have them for sale.
