Data Leak Scan Range Increase

PSA: In order to fix a critical bug I've had to reduce the range granted by this mod significantly from 4000 meters to 600. However the default is 30 so it's still worth using.

What does this mod do?
Massively increases the range of the short range scanner in order to make data leak scanning less tedious and annoying. This should make it easier to scan from M ships as well as make it possible to scan from L and XL ships if you so desire.

Does this make the game easier?
Yes, technically, but I think it just saves you time. The range is still short enough that you'll have to go into station turret range, so I don't think it effects the balance of the game.

Enjoying my mod?
I'd really appreciate a thumbs up or favorite to show me that people like my mods. Alternately if you'd like to support me you can do so here! I'm always up for requests when it comes to characters.

If you need help, I recommend the Egosoft Discord. [discord.gg] People there are usually super helpful, especially to a new player.

So that little yellow pentagon thing?

When using both this mod and the mod I mentioned before, it'll look a lot like the image above. Target a station, activate Scan Mode (CTRL + 2) and you'll see signal leaks as mission markers. The mod allows you to filter data leaks and mission offers by reactivating Scan Mode to cycle.

What should I see when I find one at maximum distance from this mod? (Sorry I'm new and soooo lost)

Yep still works! This mod only lets you scan signal leaks from further away though. If you're looking for help finding them, I recommend this mod.

Does this still work? I'm new and not sure what to look for when I'm a ways away.

Thank you to those who pointed out the bug with signal scans not granting rewards. I removed the comments to avoid confusion going forward but I wouldn't have found the issue without you pointing it out.
