I believe I found the same planet and I also think youíre right that they donít randomize. I refuse to look up cheats on this game at least until Iíve played through it once but Iím sure by now someone has published a list of what planets to find the various elements on.

The ďsnapshotĒ survey method goes a lot faster than just dragging the scanner across the surface. No way you miss a large deposit and only occasionally have I missed a small one and just left the planet in a ďpoorĒ and not ďdepletedĒ condition. Plus by the time youíve nearly finished a planet youíll know if Itís got a particular mineral since one or two minerals usually dominate on each planet.

Another plus Iíve found in the game is Jackís outfit. ;\)

Yeah, that was the method of scanning I adopted as well.

I would have loved to spend more time with the is game but just couldn't justify $60 on a new game purchase right now so I went with the rental.

Unfortunately I did the same thing with Mass Effect 1.

I'll be interested in hearing how things ended for you guys when you get there... I know my ending was not optimum because I did not build up my crew all the way.

I am taking my time with this game as well. I have invested about 35 hours thus far. I am trying to do 100% of everything that is offered. Scanning planets has become pointless but I want everything to read 100% on each area and have scanning results of depleted. I found some element zero last night in Rosetta Nebula: Enoch - Misrain, Laban and Joab. All I did late last night was scan planets and complete some anamoly assginments.

Currently I have over 1 million units of iridium, 800000 units of palladium, 650000 units of platinum and 90000 units of element zero. I have a few more areas to scan. It is totally pointless to do this but I want to complete everything possible even if I do not get any achievements for it. Scanning is repetitive, boring and tedious and felt bogged down at times (it helps doing a few anamoly assignments in between). I can't wait to start kicking some ass and go back to doing missions.

I am confident I will get over a million with palladium as well. Platinum will be tough, element zero impossible.

A little OCD doc?

Iíve been trying to grab everything out of each system as I go but only in conjunction with following other quests. So far thatís kept me in more minerals than I can use due to other research prerequisites. I havenít been able to block out any significant amount of time to play since the weekend.

Just enjoying this game to its fullest. ;\) IMO the best game to date of the current generation consoles (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii) that delivers on the entire package (graphics/environments/cut scenes, storyline/character development, sound, voice acting, depth, gameplay, controls) I'm up in the low 40's on time played on my first play through, still have plenty to do.

I plan on taking my time and making the first time through last. I will at least play two more times once going for max paragon and the other max renegade just to see if things differ significantly.

Yeah I am doing everything possible on the first playthrough. My next playthrough will be on insanity difficulty (which is supposed to be quite difficult) as a Sentinel (no scanning on this one...lol).

My Shepard is a bit of a mix right now, but I was striving for evil. I will try to go the max paragon route the 2nd time around.
