Just been checking out the new dZ Area Challenge Maps, which are great! Thanks to all involved in getting them up. In the course of my tinkering, I've found that GA10010 lists as being in Litchfield zone on its cache page, but isn't appearing in the list on Caches in Litchfield page. Noticed this because it is my only Litchfield find and the new map shows me without a find in that zone.

Thanks. That's a data anomaly that I can't understand but has been addressed.

Just found a related but not identical issue with GA1940. It shows as being in Grant zone on both cache page and Caches in Grant page, but for some reason my dZ Area Challenge map hasn't picked up the find.

That one is listed in Victoria (Strathdownie, Victoria, Australia) so is excluded based on the state you are looking at. Even though it is the zone, when we look for a match by state it gets dropped. I've updated the state to SA and it should now be on the map.

That one is quite close to the border and I thought that might have had something to do with the problem. Thanks for fixing it, all good now at my end.

Hi Old Saint

They can be found in your 'Graphs' tab then drop down to dragonZone Area Chellenge and select the State/Territory you are interested in.

Cheers
LL


Thanks for this info, but when I look at my map it is just green blobs, doesn't look like a map Tasmania and I can't see lists of zones with info on caches I have found or haven't found. Should I be able to see which DZ I haven't found yetand the caches within those zones?

Just checked your page and it seems to be working. You will need to wait for three maps to load. It took 47 seconds to load on my slow machine so give it a bit of time. There will NOT be a list of zones or caches, it will be a map with the zones you have found in green and the zones you still need to find in white.

Thanks. I logged into a laptop and waited a bit longer and the map appeared.

I think I might have found another map anomaly. Looks like Tenterfield zone is being picked up in Queensland and should be in NSW. It runs along that border area which zig zags a bit.

Thanks. That's been wrong since it was first created in 2010 :shock:

It looks like the centroid of the zone was checked as as it's an unusual cutout the centroid is in QLD where as the zone is a actually NSW. I have corrected this one.

I checked my DZ trophies today and found a new one had been awarded...Glug, Glug (find a cache below sea level). Gold.
Now I'm confused. An import of all my GCA finds into GSAK and an update of elevations does not show any caches below sea level except locationless ones. The only caches I've logged since my last trophy update were a few locationless ones and a couple of physical caches with elevations well above sea level (>100m).

Why has this trophy been awarded now?

My guess would be that a moving cache you have found recently has been moved, even by someone else since your find, to a spot at that elevation.

The elevation data has recently been updated and some geocache elevations have changed. It seems that a geocache you have found in the past is now eligible.

Hi all,
Just noticed additional dz points for the ladt 2 caches found..ga11730 and ga12202
Have checked all points options but can not find why the additional points were given....obviously due to latest changes...but it would be nice to know why they were given.
Many thanks in advance.

This is was posted in the forums, in the daily e-mailer and on the Facebook page. Hopefully you would have seen it in one of those areas....

...…"The dragonZone forge has been quite busy of late, creating and crafting new enhancements to the game, and bringing a few new new dZ point bonuses.


You will now earn bonus dragonZone points finding valid dZ caches based on clan control:

A small bonus for finding a cache that your clan already CONTROLS.
A moderate bonus for finding a cache that your clan does NOT CONTROL.
A generous bonus for finding a cache that your clan did NOT CONTROL, but after your find your clan CONTROLS.*
A large bonus for finding or publishing a geocache in a zone that your clan did NOT control, but after your find or publication your clan CONTROLS.*


* The bonus applies ONLY to a change of control where the find alone creates the clan control change, not any additional dZ points that are allocated after the find.
