What is the minimum scan needed to find 750 planets?

I don't know if anyone has the exact value, but scanning until the button is grayed out:

10259 scan == 811 planets

Depends if you want to keep wasting 5 Energy when you reach the scan rating of "Very Poor".

As a slow ranker, I have lots of cubes and trimatrixes just sitting in cargo. Spending some to maximize my investment in scanners and scan buffs is the opposite of "wasting" in that context.

I believe it depends on what your lv is and what your scan is if you had 225 scan at rank 10 you could scan quite alot at rank 100 you cant at all

level has nothing to do with it. Scan and the number of planets you have scanned.

I said i believe but it greys out eventually the mpore scan the more planets less scan less planets.

I scanned until the button was gray and then I put it in the wiki.

It looks almost linear with ODragons numbers and my single data point. If that holds, 9500 scan should yield 751 planets (results not guaranteed).

looks like though adding more scan becomes less effective the higher you get.

i think its around 9300 though according to binary

when i added 0,0 as a datapoint, excel gives me this equation:

y=0.0758x

where y is the number of planets and x is the scan power

if this holds up, the answer to the original question is 9895 scan power.

add all the data points and do a regression. its not linear.

Try that by using 1,1 because you start off with 1 scan and that finds 1 planet. That's the true Origin. However, I don't think it's a completely linear equation. 0.0758 seems to be a rather odd choice for a linear slope. We need to get some gray-out data points between 1 and 11k to get a more accurate relationship. I suggest we make this an Official Figure Out DanMath Project.

doesnt fit quadratic cubic or quartic well. also tried a logarithmic that one seemed the to have the least random of values. more points will help though.

my next scan ran will be 2650.18 scan power, but won't be for a couple more weeks yet :(
