Hello and thanks for reading I have just started X3 and on my 2 misson i think. I have to follow a pirate ship to it's base a scan it the base if poss. I have NO WAY to scan base. So I go back to talk to someone I believe call jackson but he has nothing to say to me.

What do I have to do to move on?

Thanks

Tazz

Just get (very) close to the base, you should get a message showing you how far the scan has progressed.

normally you'll see a counter in % at the bottom left of your screen, which goes up quite quickly... when it gets to 100% the scan is finished.

Make that very very very close, and then a bit closer until you are sure you are about to crash into it.

Fly close enough to run your hand along the paint.

Asking a new question is better done in a new thread rather than digging up one that's two and a half months old.

Which sector are you in (if it's an unknown sector what's the nearest named sector)? If xenon are showing up you may be talking about an entirely different mission.
