I read the guide and it does well, however, I have trouble finding NPC targets. I general travel from asteroid belt to asteroid belt until I find some.
I did play with the scanner (just below the cargo button on the user interface) which brings up the solar system with some red dots.
Do these red dots indicate Rats? The scanner only seems to indicate the Rats are at <planet> X, so I assume you have to search the stations, moons, and roid belts.
Is this correct?
Is there a better scanner or other means to locate the Rats quicker?
