Okay on to the question.
I captured a commander from a battleship but after interrogating him I found out that you have to catpure a commander from a base. I had already sacked two bases before interrogating him. However, I am having incredible difficulty finding enemy bases! I know for certain that there is a floater base in south america and a muton base in australia. I have even followed supply ships incoming, jacked them when they landed and tried to have my interceptors locate the base near the landing. However, they can't seem to find a damn thing. I have combed these continents for these two bases to no avail. Australia isn't even that big for god sake! I use interceptors for scouting because they are fast but their fuel lasts and doesn't cost elerium. Am I doing something wrong?
Any tips on finding bases would be much appreciated. I mostly need specifics like within what range can an interceptor see a base? What percent change does he have of seeing it and how often does this chance "tick"? Does he need to be patrolling when he is near it or can he fly over it?
EDIT:Important extra question.
If my interceptor is close to a base how long in game time will it take for him to detect it? If it is by percent chance what is the average time?
