I just started the game. I've tried a few salvage missions, but I've found them very frustrating. In all cases, I get to the Nav beacon, then I'm told a new destination -- most of which are planets or moons. When I approach the moon, I'm told that the mission object has been found. I'll see a little blue icon popup but I always A) Overfly it and lose it or B) Lose it when I drop out of cruise drive.
So far I've yet to figure out how to actually approach and pick it up. Very frustrating!
Is there an easier way to locate them (like better scanners?)? How do I approach and pick them up?
