Anyone knows the cooldown for scan ads?

    If I remember correctly it is 20 minutes.

    I just realized that the ad option goes away if you do not use it immediately. I just scanned after 3 hours and got the ad option. I thought I would test it but wanted to send my shuttles first. When I returned to the main screen the ad option was gone. This is silly.

    Hmmm if this is true then there indeed is a bug. I have not seen an ad option for 3 hours after my first two scans where I did not make use of it, and I did not watch an ad at all today so far. Other ads like for missions are available though.

    I made a post in Engineering.

    Thanks for your answers guys!

    The missing link in my brain was the fact that only a regular scan triggers the ad option. I never realized that as I never paid attention to it, and the bug with ads being unavailable every now and then did not help to find a pattern.

    Anyway, for the new feature the way it works is bad news to me.

    The ad-scan will stay available unless you go into your shuttle missions and start returning or sending out shuttles. It's a bit of a glitch, or a design decision; hard to tell which with this. If you don't start up shuttle missions, the ad-scan will stay there until the scan recharges. I can't remember if it goes away if you go into the crew screen or your voyage.

    And to confirm, yes, the recharge for ad-scans is 20mins, since the charge time for scans is 3hrs already.

    Shan confirmed it is working as intended in Engineering. To me the intention seems to be a bit weird though.

    But it is ok as long as we know how it works. I really had no idea.
