In game when you scan using the tricorder it just looks for the nearest object be it anomaly or dater of your next objective (i think it dose) but what i think would be good is the option to change the settings!
open up a new menu in game and change what your looking for be it anomalies or life forms, energy readings and the next objective
And with the different classes having different types
Science better looking for life forms
Tactical better at isolating enemy targets (could be useful for Stealth)
Engineering better at using consoles and deactivating weapons/shields
Plus you could also upgrade it with parts!
so no new tricorders but modular parts! that ppl could make using skills
Ah, so yo mean add more options to the scan.. that could be useful.
Currently I use scan quite a bit to find objectives, especially in places like asteroid fields or cargo bays.
Wouldn't mind seeing some more functionality added to it. OHH, what about being able to scan a targetted life form and get a quip about their species? I had to google a race I ran into last night because I couldn't figure out why they looked like blue borg.
One thing that is kind of annoying is it seems to stop looking for objectives if there are no more anomolies in the area. Hopefully that will get changed. It definitely is a nice addition rather than having to run around looking.
at the most I think something like organic, energy or matter reading should be used. I don't necessarily want a drop down allowing me a half dozen selections, but even in cannon lore you were able to read for something general like that.
