      Scanner functionality being phased out in the power update disappointed many of us. Before, scanners were very useful in finding system info and scanning for other players. Reintroducing scanner functionality would get rid of a lot of confusion in the game such as mining bonuses. Maybe also have an upgraded scanner that can detect ships under 10,000 mass but at the cost of a lot of reactor points. As of currently there is no real purpose for the short range scanner, and the scanner menu is empty after a scan.
