At least I thought so.
In fact, the upgrade seem to have no effect at all. The scanner view hasn't changed and the way to acquire materials is still the same.
Anyone else with a similar experience? I don't want to play this stupid minigame for ages just to have some upgrades...
and 60 more probes.
The planet scanning is "faster", you can actually move the cursor faster on the planet while holding right mouse.
Of course you can't move too fast or you won't see variations in the scanner and miss mining spots.
It's better than the turtle-scanner you initially have anyway...
