Questions about using hermes probe
« on: December 29, 2009, 08:35:19 AM »
I was wondering if it was at all possible to send probes to planets that are not colonized.  I was also wondering why I keep getting an error saying that the planet I am looking for could not be found.  Am I entering the coordinates in wrong (e.g. 40.444.4)?  Is it not possible to send a probe to a planet that is within my galaxy?  And finally, am I able to send a probe to a planet within my allies galaxy?  Basically answers relating to how to use probes in the game would be helpful.

I think planets don't actually exist in the game until somebody colonizes them. So that might be a reason. Anyway, what kind of intel would you expect from probing a not colonized planet. There's nothing there. Planet field sizes and temperatures get generated upon colonization, so you wouldn't even be able to probe for that (note that this kind of info isn't in espionage reports to begin with).

You can send ships on harvest missions to not colonized planets. I'm not sure about transport/deploy missions, though.

Right, you cannot probe a planet slot unless there is a planet there.
