SEARCH LIST MISSION

Recommended Posts

There was chocolate covered blueberries involved but.... ummm the didn't make it to the picture

Right. Anything with chocolate needs to be photographed straight away, otherwise it's gone... :laughing:

 

Congratulations on your marvelous parcel, that was quite a treasure trove!

 

Maybe there should be a new rule stating that chocolates NOT appearing in the pics will mean that the coins are forfeited and must be forwarded to the next Mission recipient ... :P ... :lostsignal:

Now, you can't change the rules so far into the game.

Did you take picutures of your chocolates?

Or are you just mad, because you didn't get chocolates?

:laughing:

 

Rules can be changed, anytime Yanagi wants to - it's HIS game ... :D

 

When I get chocolate, it gets posted. NOT posting it is .... well ... like posting pics of your ... S**RCH *IST MI*SI*N ... ;)

No no, even if I started this more than a year ago, it is OUR game now :PB)

 

TrinIzzyCar or JPBarr, can you tell us which version of the Patchwork Dragons you got/sent? I would like to add that to the list of sent search list coins.

Since you know for sure they came from Heaven ... if you were a true Angel ... you would have known !!

 

THAT answers the "Angel or NOT" question ... :P

OOooops ... wrong thread Thomas ...........

 

Okay, here's Part II of the Want List tutorial...

 

Q. What if several people have listed a coin I really want. If I include all the IDs in my want lists, is it possible to get more than one?

 

A. Using the method I described above, yes this is a possibility.

 

Say I have listed coinID 161 and coinID 172 up for trade. I would like to get two of the following coins for them:

 

"Omni Animalia Germany" (IDs 551 627 694)

"Trees and Men" (IDs 307 788)

 

So I could make the following want list:

 

161 : 551 627 694 307 788
172 : 551 627 694 307 788

 

However, by doing it this way I would 'risk' receiving coin 551 for coin 161 and coin 627 for coin 172. I'd end up with two of the same "Animalia" coins instead of getting two different coins.

 

You can avoid this very easily by defining variables.

 

You define a coin group to make sure you only get at most 1 coin from that group. Pick a name for your group and stick a percent sign ('%') in front of it to indicate that it is a variable. Then add a colon (':') and a space-delimited list of coin IDs. In the example above, my coin variables would look like this:

 

%Animalia : 551 627 694
%TreesMen : 307 788

 

Now I simply include these names in my want list, instead of the actual coin numbers. My list would then change to look like this:

 

161 : %Animalia %TreesMen 
172 : %Animalia %TreesMen 

 

This way, if coin 161 gets traded for one of the coins from the %Animalia group, this will prevent coin 172 from being traded for another coin from that same group.

 

Your variables must be defined at the top of the want list that you send to me, and every line must start with your nickname in parentheses.

 

(E&Cplus3) %Animalia : 551 627 694
(E&Cplus3) %TreesMen : 307 788
(E&Cplus3) 161 : %Animalia %TreesMen 
(E&Cplus3) 172 : %Animalia %TreesMen 

 

But wait! There's more! You can nest your variables. This means that you can take a variable that you have already defined and use it within another variable. Why would you do this?

 

Say you have a coin that you would like to trade for the Animalia Germany coin, and only for that coin. But there are a few of them in the list (IDs 551 627 694). There are some other coins that you would like trade for ANY Animalia coin, including the Germany, and there are a LOT of them (IDs 369 371 777 780 693 419)

 

Well, you already have the Germany coins defined, so now you need to create a variable for the whole group:

 

(E&Cplus3) %AnimaliaGermany : 551 627 694
(E&Cplus3) %AnimaliaAll : %AnimaliaGermany 369 371 777 780 693 419
(E&Cplus3) %TreesMen : 307 788
(E&Cplus3) 161 : %AnimaliaGermany %TreesMen 
(E&Cplus3) 172 : %AnimaliaGermany %TreesMen
(E&Cplus3) 173 : %AnimaliaAll %TreesMen
(E&Cplus3) 174 : %AnimaliaAll %TreesMen

 

Notice how the second variable definition uses the variable defined earlier. In my want lists, coin 161 uses the %AnimaliaGermany variable, and coin 173 uses the variable for all Animalia coins.

 

Just a few notes about precedence: the coins listed within a variable all have equal weight! So, in the %AnimaliaAll variable, coin 551 has the same weight as coin 419. However, when using variables in your want lists, the normal precedence rules apply (ie. %AnimaliaGermany trumps %TreesMen).

 

That's it! Please don't hesitate to ask for clarification if I haven't explained things well enough.

I sought the Flash Mob edition of the 12-13-14 coin and I love pathtags and there is 5000 days of caching that I had never seen before (apologies for quality of photo).

If you use the 'all visited' drop down, just delete the Mission Tag and mark it alone for 'no action'. You can select which to visit and which not ...

 

Toojin will get to it I'm sure, but meanwhile it stops traveling with you that way.
