I have both the mission where I have to give aid to a needy planet, as well as the straight "explore Delta Volanis" mission.
So I arrived in the Delta Volanis cluster only to find that there was nothing on the map, and no systems listed. I assumed that maybe I just had to find the systems myself, and started flying around.
Well after three full loops of the whole area and a ton of anomalies scanned, I have yet to come across a single system. Which obviously makes delivering aid to said systems rather difficult.
Am I doing something wrong here? Perhaps I skipped some mission step, or am in the wrong place? Or am I just having bad luck with the anomalies and need to keep scanning?
When you get in range you either get a scan interective or an enter system. Not much more to it. Of course when you find a system you don't know of which type so you have to go in and "explore". It might be a military objective that reuires you to fight ships or groudn enemys or a diplomatic mission that let's you scan anomalies in space, artifacts on the ground or the planet aid mission you are looking for.
