This shows the name and coordinates of the planet that you are currently on. There is an arrow at either side to allow quick access to your other planets, click here for more information on the Planet Navigator.
This is accessed through the planet manager only when you have the Intelligence Agency research completed, the button will NOT be available until then.
Here you will see all the probes you have researched and how many you have of each one.
This shows you the resources available to the production team followed by the list of probes you have available to build.
Probe Type: This shows you the probes available and the resource cost to build them.
Qty. Required: This is where you enter the amount you want to build.
Once you have entered the amount of probes you want, click the Order Probes button.
This will list all the available probes that your intelligence agency has in stock on the planet.
This is where all your probes are launched, 3 probes can be sent at any one time by selecting what probe you want and where you want to send it.
Probe Type: This is where you will select which probe you want to use.
Destination: Enter the coordinates of the planet you want to target.
Pick Target: Use this link to select coordinates you have stored in the hit list.
Once you have finished your selection, click the Launch Probes button.
This will display what probes are currently being built, the amount left and the time remaining until they are completed.
Each probe has a basic chance of success. By building Probe Boosters at the planet launching
the probe, you can increase this chance. The target can decrease the probes chance of success
by building Interference Generators.
The basic chance of success for each probe type is listed in the table below.
Here we have an example of how a probes chance of success is calculated.
Planet A Launches a Geological Probe against Planet B. Planet A has 1000 Probe Boosters and
Planet B has 750 Interference Generators.
The chance of success is calculated as follows (The figures in [ ] indicate the values of system constants that are fixed for all calculations
involving signal boosters and interference generators).
||Calculate Chance Adjustment
||Chance Adjustment = ( ( ( Boosters + BoosterOffset  ) / Boost Factor  ) / (IGens + IGenOffset  )
||Calculate Actual Chance Of Success
||Actual Chance Of Success = Base Chance X Chance Adjustment
||60 X 0.268
||Check whether chance is below the minimum
||Chance Of Success < Minimum Chance [1%]
||Is 16.059 < 1
Chance of success is:
