Re: multi tool scanner problem

It does pop up when you do an analysis scan. Are you scanning by pressing down on the left stick? That isn't what you scan creature's and stuff with. Use the left trigger for scanning animals and thigs with.

Re: multi tool scanner problem

You should have a path back to where you came from. Also, look for a star with little flashing brackets around it. That should be your starting system I believe.
I did the same as you with the pre-order ship. I did find plans on how to make a hyper-drive though. I have been buying anti-matter from traders at a space station and making warp power that way. Just do a lot of trading with resources and you can make a bunch of credits. I found planets with tons of gold and sell it.
