    Nice, but I will repeat my beg for an epic SV detector.
    Both HV's and CV's have one, just not SV's.

    I will also point out that, while the first part of the Robinson Protocol does not trigger on planets like the swamp starter, parts 2 and 3 still trigger.
    Which is why I thought the protocol was incomplete a long time ago.

    Ok, I'm curious, what are these epic detectors you mention?

    I can only find 1 for each type of build and the one for SVs is actually more powerful than the one for HVs.....

    You cant build them. The new Epics need to be earned

    You do this with the new Explorer Missions, automatic completed tasks that give you explorer tokens
    those you can turn in at the GIN Console to get ranks, some ranks rewards the new epics

    The epic upgrade tokens are also available in the item menu, if there is already one for the SV detector it's missing from the item menu.
    Which is why I am asking about it.

    There is no epic SV detector. Just HV (to give it an edge over SV on planets) and CV (long range scan). Intentional and no intention to change ;)

    Except from the improvement in FPS I have noticed a reduction on GPU usage. Need to play more though to test more situations, especially in POIS with many lights.
