Ok so my question is pretty straight forward, but let me provide a little background.
I had just got my atlas mission and decided that I would have an actual agenda and start down the Atlas Path. In my first Atlas Path "waypoint?" for a system I came across planets that had been discovered by another player.
I know what you're thinking and yes it's extremely rare from what I've heard. It also SUCKS MAJORLY. Now I can't discover things and get the credits, and this leads me to my question.
Are we going to share Atlas paths? Is his path going to be the same as mine therefore the whole time I'm going to go down the Atlas path I'm not going to be able to discover hardly anything? I'm missing out on A LOT of credits here and since it was only in my 4th system, so far the atlas path I've followed he's there too, I feel like for the rest of the Atlas Path I'm just flat out missing out on a lot.
If anyone has any insight it would be great. I'm also going to keep this updated with things I find out as I play through my game. Seems kinda like unexplored territory.
