Topic: New artifact scanning
The new artifact scanning mechanic is now out on the test server.
Uses the same equipment/charges like before.
Instead of distance and the difference to the last scan, it now gives you the approximate distance, the amount of inaccuracy, and a bearing indicator to the scanned coordinate. (which, depending on the inaccuracy, isn't the actual location of the artifact)
When you are on the scanned coordinate, the bearing indicator will change to indicate this.
Inaccuracy depends on your module accuracy, and the distance from the artifact. The further you are, the less accurate your scans will be. It's random though, so if you're really lucky you can get an exact coordinate on your first scan from kilometers away.
It is a valid strategy to just stand still and scan until you get a relatively accurate result, but closing in will obviously gradually eliminate the inaccuracy.
