Getting all the explorer's notes..HLNA Discoveries?
So I'm finally at the point on my story-canon playthrough that I'm ready to fight The Island bosses, do the Tek cave, and ascend to the next map.

I want to get all the notes before I leave the Island though and admit that I'm cheating for the rest of them by using the Note Tracker mod that gives you a nice gps pointer to them..

So anyway, my question is...do I need to do the Genesis map and then come back to the island to get all of the HLNA discoveries? I went to the location of one and got right on top of where it should be, and got nothing.

Also...do I need those to get 100% for the Island notes?

Ok so first of all do you own genesis?

IF you do you have to equip the little HLNA bot in your offhand slot and go to the spot, the bot will scan around you and talk a bit and that will be your note.

As far as I'm aware everytime they added notes (like before extinction) these notes would count towards 100% so my guess is the genesis ones too. Also one note will be in the last boss arena and 3 more just before the arena.

EDIT: this means you do not need to go to genesis first, but you need to own it.

Yep, I got all DLC's when they had their sale a month or so ago. I do have HLNA equipped.

...I guess that discovery I was standing right on top of may have been in a cave below me... I was very, very thorough when exploring caves and getting the artifacts, but I apparently missed that one. Maybe I had switched to my chibi because the cave had an alpha ... or something.

Bugger all. Guess I'll have to make a trip back into that cave with the note tracker equipped.

Thanks for the tip about the 4 notes in the final area and boss cave, by the way, you just helped me to make sure I'm not spinning my wheels trying to find those before I do the bosses. haha

No problem :) and yes the HLNA notes on the island are mainly in caves.
