Zones

From Mushpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

With the exception of Landing and MIA, these are the zones that make up a planet as they appear in the scans. Landing is always the first "zone" you go through on every expedition. The others are selected at random from the pool of yet unexplored zones.

  • Every zone has 4 possible outcomes, though some are just different messages with the same result.
  • An expedition will visit up to 9 zones after the landing (3 in a patrol craft), until all zones have been explored or the mission is aborted.
  • Every Icon Sprinter in the team lets you explore one additional zone.
  • Losing a team member will add an unexplored MIA zone to the pool when it happens.
  • The 'wandering' event will cause a zone to remain unexplored and show up again, possibly in the same expedition.
  • When exploring zones with skills or equipment that increase yield, the numbers will already show this.
Stopicon.png Warning: The below results are figured based upon a set of samples taken from spading within the French game, as well as Mushpedia user input. Please pay close attention to the number of samples before deciding whether you should take the data at face value! The more samples, the more trustworthy a data set is.

Icon Note: Most of these, though not all, seem to follow a 40% / 30% / 20% / 10% pattern.
