Hyperspace Rift probes and how to use them

Postby Thom » Wed Nov 16, 2016 10:33 pm

Probe ships now have the ability to launch probes down Hyperspace Rifts. Okay they always had this capability but now you'll get a stellar Map of the sector the Hyperspace Rift leads to.

Use action code 112
Put the location of the Hyperspace Rift in the Location #1 slot. Note it is a move and do so the fleet will move there.
Put the fleet with the probe ship in the Fleet #1 slot.

You'll get a sector map as if you launched a sector probe.

Pirates, Smugglers, and Cybers can launch Rift sector probes at tec level 18, all others at tec level 40.

Either probe ship works for this.

Did you figure out why the Rift Exp Probe Ship wasnt working with this?

For those who were wondering: The TL of your empire needs to be sufficient to launch Rift Probes from a Probe Ship for this to work. I was laboring under the assumption that the ship itself was capable of performing the task. So, TL 18 for Pirates, Smugglers, and Cybers, and higher for all others.

And what TL does a Pirate need to be to launch rift probes? I tried using the probe ship, and I got the rift end destination, but lost the probe ship in the process. (same result with 3 different rifts, 3 different probe ships, ah well) :)

Is your overall tech level over 18?

Yes. Although maybe I messed up the code and ordered the ship through the rift by accident, I'll have to check

EDIT: Yep, I seem to have ordered a rift jump, not the launch of a rift probe... Should've checked first, asked questions later. :|

I sent Thom a slew of messages, claiming the code didn't work, until he sent me the info that you have to be at the proper TL to send Sector Probes down Hyperspace Rifts before the ship will function properly. Not a problem for my Pirate position, but my Nomad hadn't reached that TL yet.
