    The first planet you encounter, Eos is very easy to get to 100% once you complete the main mission on the planet and complete the priority mission that immediately follows to recruit the 6th follower.

    The main mission you have to complete in order to setup a settlement nets 50% of the viability.

    Another 30% can be gotten by completing 3 side missions which include solving the earthquake problem, destroying the Kett stronghold and discovering the research project on the planet at settlement 2.

    You also get viability by setting up forward outposts, with each one netting you 2% viability for simply finding them. I believe Eos has 6-7 for another 14% viability.

    In order to finish 100%ing Eos simply complete 3 other side missions that net 2% viability each getting you to 100%. Thankfully there are more than 3 side missions on the planet that give you viability making this rounding out process much easier.

    SlipKnoT 008 You can get this without the earthquake quest, you will need the kett stronghold though. That's also a good area to rack up some kills for the terminator achievement.

    Stevo6483 I tried going back to Eos after recruiting the 6th companion on Aya and the radiation was still there. You have to at least progress with either the Havarl or Voeld quest you get on Aya before the radiation clears.

    Personally I found Havarl quickest to get 100%. After the main 'Helping the Scientists' quest picking up and completing the 'Dying Planet' quest boosted the viability significantly. There's a couple of minor side quests that you do on your way through these 2 bigger quests, coupled with how quickly you can reach each forward station, you can boost the viability sky high in no time. Once you've done that you leave the planet, get an email asking you to return, go back and speak to someone and you get another huge boost to 100%. Much quicker and easier than going through all the conditions to raise viability on Eos (huge battles, long fetch quests, waiting for radiation to clear, etc).

    Iggsy81 Thanks for that Stevo cos Eos seemed like a pain in the balls to me to get 100%. I was sick and tired of that planet by the time the main mission was done and it's a jerk of a planet to have to drive around. Half the time the map doesn't load topography correctly and it's all just a bag of wankery so im glad to hear there's a better option.
