Harpy Scanners

From Outscape Wiki

Revision as of 16:17, 5 April 2019 by IDA Games (talk | contribs) (Constructing and upgrading)

A Harpy Scanner is a unique planetary scanner that can only be constructed on a player's colonies with a native Harpy population (scanners detect objects in space: the outer range (scanner range) can only detect positions of star systems and fleets; the inner range (sensor range) can additionally detect planets and fleet intel).

  • Harpy scanners have wider sensor ranges than regular planetary scanners (the scanner ranges are the same)
  • A player can construct a level 1 Harpy scanner immediately after colonizing a planet with a native Harpy population - they do not need to be researched (neither do levels 2 and 3)
  • It's not possible to construct a level 2 or 3 Harpy scanner directly, only level 1, which can be upgraded to level 2, and then level 3

Research

Harpy scanners don't need to be researched (and can't be researched).

Constructing and upgrading

  • Level 1 Harpy scanners can be constructed directly on a colonized planet with a native Harpy population
  • Level 2 Harpy scanners can be built only by upgrading a level 1 Harpy scanner
  • Level 3 Harpy scanners can be built only by upgrading a level 2 Harpy scanner
