  1. Well, the good news is nothing seems to be broken.

     

    But I have failed to figure out how to turn on the new stuff. E.g. I can't see any cache IDs on the map, no matter where I click.

     

    I'm not very good at puzzle caches either..

     

    I'd love to have the cache IDs... today I manually write them on the maps!

     

    I had the same problem at first

    You need to click on the “i” icon on the bottom left of the map (turning it blue), then left click on the map, next click on show labels

     

    Hope this helps

  2. I have just tried the new version (v0.6.1), it took me a few minutes to figure out that you needed to right left click to bring up the menu. But once I had discovered that the new improvement is great thanks for all your hard work

    Just one thing, is it possible to get the cache name rather than the GC number

    I appreciate all the work that has gone into the script and I don’t know how much work this request would involve

    Thanks again for the work so far

  3. I can see why it scares little ones!!

     

    Just thought I'd pop a few photos of my 'A-maze-ing Cache'...I got the idea from a previous post, it's just my take on it :)

    Nice to see that my idea has inspired other people to make caches with a difference

    May I make one observation? It may be worth covering the exit, so that the nano is not dropped on the floor and possibly lost during the shaking proses. This happened to me a few times while I had friends testing it before it went live.

    Good luck with you cache

  4. A new cache that I am about to be deployed

    The wood block, with the cache inside, is dropped into the top of the pipe, which will be secured to a fence post.

    Using the holes drilled into the pipe, you work the block up the pipe, using the screwdrivers provided

     

    Wood swells when wet. Make sure you have enough clearance to compensate for it swelling after weeks/months of rain/snow etc. Maybe a resin or pvc container would be better? Submerge the plug in water for a couple weeks and see if it still fits :)

    there is a lot of clearance for the wood to swell

    Cool, looks like one Sven made. (I think the one he posted on YouTube was his)

    Where do you think I got the idea?

  6. The owner has marked this TB as missing on 20/10/2011

    So I think he/she will be very happy that it has reappeared

    I suggest that you log it as found and right where you found it in the log

    Then you can send it on its way to a new cache

  7. Not depoloyed yet, but I am preparing maze related cache. Some part of idea came from martinbryn (#5111). Thanks him for great idea.

     

    At first visitors solve following maze, and calculate final coordinate.

     

    At the final coordinate, they can see following container.

     

    Seems like normal lock&lock box, but open it then :

    The logsheet is in nano capsule, which is put into the maze upper right. It can be out at lower left hall, upper right hall is so tight that it can't go out.

    However, as you can see, the maze is too simple, so anybody can get it within 1 minute.

     

    So I think another option like following. The visitors can hardly see through it, so it can be difficult to take out.

    So what do you think the best out of following 3 options?

     

    1. transparent

    2. white

    3. white with hint (layout)

     

    I am soory that my English is not good, but your help will be highly appreciated.

    Hi

    I like your idea and I am glad you used my idea for inspiration.

    My Cache has gone live

     

    Its amazing | GC3AH23

     

    The cache is going down well so far, taking people about 5 minutes to solve the maze once found

    As you can see from the pictures of mine in this thread you cannot see into the maze and you do not get a clue as to the layout

    Looking at yours, the path to the end is not too complicated and should be easily solved without being able to see the path.

    If you can see or have a plan of the maze then it will take a matter of seconds to complete

    Which for me would make the effort of making it, and the effort of going to find it, disappointing.

    I found a good way to test my maze, was to give it to friends and ask them to solve it, before it went out in the field , If they can solve it, then it can be done in the field
