(I) Fix ISD’s to Work with Minerals (+9 votes)
Player Voice:
Comments: This was implemented, but does not currently function with mineral surveying. The droid is sent away but no report ever returns.

(II) Add Kashyyyk to ISD Destinations (+16 votes) [NOT IMPLEMENTED]
Player Voice:

Comments: Currently players have to physically go to Kashyyyk, survey for to find if there are any new resources, then hand sample them all to upload stats to SWG Aide.

(III) Add Mustafar to ISD Destinations (+16 votes) [NOT IMPLEMENTED]
Player Voice:

Comments: Same as item above.

(IV) Add Resource Stats to ISD Reports (+28 votes) [NOT IMPLEMENTED]

Player Voice:
Comments: There are over 800 resources that cycle through the galaxy and surveying for every one is an immense burden for a relatively small player base. Currently resource reports can be exported to SWG Aide to identify new resources, then players travel to each system, locate the resource, hand sample the resource, then manually enter the data into SWG Aide. If stats are added to the report, they still have to be surveyed via ISD, but will cut back on time significantly.

(V) Un-Nerf the Complete Resource Tool to Sample Creature Resources [NOT IMPLEMENTED]
Comments: There are over 200 creature-related resource spawns that are cycled through every ~2 weeks on average. There is currently no way to use an ISD for this and scouts have to go to each planet and manually survey all 200 resources.
These are significant quality of life improvements for crafters across the board and a top priority for artisans.
This Player Voice is to summarize suggestions all having to do with surveying. There are 350 Player Voices and can be difficult to keep track of them all.
The spirit of this Player Voice is to capture similar ideas all having to do with how surveying and resource discovery is handled in R3. These represent significant improvements to the quality of life of surveyors in the galaxy.

The combined rating of these Player Voices sits at +69 votes and represent at least 2 of the top 30 Player Voices. If you have not voted on these topics, please do so with the links below.

As additional feedback is collected I will edit this Player Voice.
