Also note, if you find a Gek Transmission Tower (or just try on any), Once you get the correct code and are shown a Crashed Ship, interact with the console again, and put the same code in again (do not do more than 3 times) and you will get 3 crashed ship all in close proximity.
Then just find another transmission Tower and repeat, yes on the same planet.
I did this twice on the same planet, before i decided to go to the next planet. Then after that went to the next star to do again.

Nice, didn't know you could interact more then once.

Looks like there is a bug regarding 100% planets.

Hold 'x' over the "100% box" in the discoveries menu to claim the bonus units and recognition for the journey achievement.

If you wait until you have several planets at 100% before doing this, looks like you will only get bonus credits for 1 planet, and journey achievement recognition for 100% that 1 planet. Afterwards you cannot press x on the "100% box" for any other planet you discovered.


So, after this bug occurred I travelled to the next star system. Newly discivered planets will be unaffected - so I have been 100%ing them and claiming the bonus credits before moving to the next planet. This method seems to work fine and the new planets are properly credited in the discovery journal achiement.



2. To find a Transmission Tower. Go there and decifer the code correctly. Then it will point to a Crashed Ship. (many per planet) ships will be either -1, same or +1/2 slots.
Also note, if you find a Gek Transmission Tower (or just try on any), Once you get the correct code and are shown a Crashed Ship, interact with the console again, and put the same code in again (do not do more than 3 times) and you will get 3 crashed ship all in close proximity.
Then just find another transmission Tower and repeat, yes on the same planet.

You know I will be trying 4 times now......

I can confirm this, i went to a new system and it worked fine, discovered and uploaded a new 100%, but the previous few (before the first upload) are still bugged.

You will have glitches and invisible textures, maybe make a Save file to usb first, incase it breaks your game file.

I actually had missing textures when I tried to fly into the sun. No cockpit instrumentation, and waypoints were flashing in and out of existence.

Maybe it's because of this.
