AotD - Hunter's Heads Up - Two Concurrently Available - 20120806

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks

 

Don't recall either noticing this myself

anyone commenting on it previously,

or even if its possibly ever happened before.

 

 

 

Just perusing the MicrosoftFlight Aerocaches webpage

and not unexpectedly

found today's AotD, Molokai Triangle,

was yet another that I'd already earned.

 

However thinking -

No worries,

that's one nearer

to repeating my 6 missing AotDs. :rolleyes:

 

 

 

I'd previously noticed,

but paid no attention to it,

that Free To Play or Hawaiian AP AotD's

also displayed as the first aerocache

in their respective listings below.

 

 

 

Tonight to my surprise

I noticed the F2P listing was displaying

the pic for Quonset Maze, (an AotD, but not one of the 13 F2P's).

and one of those 6 AotD's which I'd previously missed.

 

I'd already looked in-game tonight

and the only available unclaimed aerocache listed

was for Curvature of the Earth.

 

 

 

 

As the aerocache isn't listed, (i.e. GUI selectable)

there's no means of initialising the aerocache sensor.

 

Thought bugger it,

I know where this one is,

(by PC date adjustment you can see, earn XP, but not claim, some aerocaches),

so went off hunting

without the aerocache sensor. :wink:

 

 

 

Flew there.

Flew through it.

Toasted as expected.

 

Difference was -

- It didn't respawn.

- This time it stuck ! :biggrin:

 

Woot

another ticked off.

 

 

 

Bottom Line -

Any AotD collectors missing a few,

it might be worth daily checking the first of each listed collection,

as they're possibly active.

 

 

 

N.B. - Loki et al @ MS

Please reinstate the website's recently removed

Alaska Wilderness Pack lister, (even though it currently will only show 1 daily).

And... Quonset Maze is the aerocache of the day for August 7. :) Too bad, I'd already flown out and gotten it before it came up as official. I didn't keep track of my aerocache count, so I hope it added to it. I've got 165 in game right now, with 166 showing on the web site.

Quonset Maze - 5000 points

 

REALLY.

 

It's got to be one of the easiest ACs of the lot.

Why is it worth 5000 points?

Just GOT IT!!!!!

 

I've summed up **only** 106 total... Nothing compared to your figures :-/

 

Yesterday I ruined my FLIGHT install when playing with some of the pak files, but discovered very interesting items inside of it. In some way it helped understanding why we have that sensation of a better FD in FLIGHT - because it has a better FD!!!!. At the same time, looking at all of the many weather/traffic/etc... settings available and never used until now, I really feel even more sad for the fate FLIGHT apparently had...

 

I still hope for the 25th of July :-/

 

FLIGHT... What else ? Really....

So far there have been 170 Aerocaches in Flight. Only 166 of these were possible to get and increment your aero count. The 4 that are not doable are..........

1. Curvature of the earth. (Hawaii Pack).....No suitable plane.

2. Maluaka Beach (March 29th.) It was bugged and was not to be had.

3. Elmendorf AFB (July 17th.) This one was doable but Did Not increment your aero count by 1

4. Cone Island (Aug 1st.) It too was bugged and could not be got.

It looks like the NEW AOTD's are over.

I have collected all 166 aeros but when a new "OLD" AOTD comes along, my count then goes back to 165 to prepare for the next new "OLD" AOTD.

Anyone with a count of 165 has got them all.

Hi Folks

but when a new "OLD" AOTD comes along,

Fred -

Sorry I'd mean't to follow up on, and correct, my original post,

but had also been hoping for a further new aerocache

to confirm the following observation.

 

 

 

Flew there.

Flew through it.

Toasted as expected.

 

Difference was -

- It didn't respawn.

- This time it stuck ! :biggrin:

 

Woot

another ticked off.

Unfortunately,

when I launched FLIGHT early the following day

it had decremented my earned-count by one.

 

 

 

However, all was not lost,

as on relaunching FLIGHT later on that day

AFTER that evening's new aerocache became active,

my count had again been incremented by one, (to the correct value).

 

And it did so

before I'd even looked at the new aerocache's availability,

 

As I'd already earned that aerocache months ago,

the re-increment could only have been

as a result of earning Quonset Maze, (one I'd missed previously).

 

I think, but I'll have to re-check,

that my count has stayed unchanged at the correct level ever since.

 

 

 

i.e.

The count apparently only decrements back by one,

if you relaunch FLIGHT

whilst that same aerocache is still active.

 

 

 

That decrement/increment behaviour

looks like it might be the result of a dirty-workaround

for the previously reported off-by-one bug.

 

 

 

EDIT -

Just fired up FLIGHT and rechecked,

and its all changed from earlier today.

 

The POSSIBLECOUNT now looks like its been reset

down to 167 from 170, (there had been 3 unobtainables).

 

My EARNEDCOUNT has also been decremented

from 163 back to 160.

 

As it may be a work-in-progress

I'll wait till tomorrow

to see if my EARNEDCOUNT is corrected.

 

 

 

 

re: New Aerocaches

Loki's posted on the blog

that they've run out of new aerocaches for the moment,

and are re-releasing old, beta, and working versions for those previously bugged unobtainable.

 

They've also got around 40-ish new ones still on the production line. :unsure:
