Hi FolksCheers Rhett.Hope you're enjoying acquiring them.Some do require a little work and investigation to obtain,hopefully expanding one's geographic knowledge whilst doing so.Idea was prompted ISTR by someone having earned the "250 hours" reward,but not yet landed at 10 different airports.Unrelated sidenote -VISIT SERIES - COUNTRIES - COLLECTIONS - Release CycleThe following is a generic response to various questions posted in this, or other forums, or received by PM & email.Due to download size practicalitiesit's unlikely there'll be a single All_IN_ONE download package.By extrapolation,I expect the worldwide coverage collection of MASTER detailed rewards to be approximately 100MB in size.I'll probably eventually release them as 3 packages.N.B.This is a long time off, (at earliest summer 2009).I'd never intended to release the UPDATES packsas frequently as I have done recently, (see below).It's always been my intent to releaseintermediate EVERYTHING_TO_DATE type collections.The first of these will be released after UPDATES - PACK 10,some time early next year.The suggestion of once-a-month releases containing EVERYTHING_TO_DATE would be impractical.You'd be repeatedly making > 25MB,and increasingly larger downloads,for approximately 3MB of new/updated content.Due to other FS & IRL commitments,the next release, UPDATES - PACK 8,will most likely be the last for the current year.At that pointI'll release a global map imageindicating the then available BASIC & MASTER coverage extent.You may also have noticed,the recently released MASTER reward files are not as detailed in categorisation scope,as some of those released earlier in the VISIT SERIES.i.e.Recent files generally only include state/province/county type rewards.Rather than the older reward setswhich include state/province/county, plus rewards for -- Capitals- Military- Citiesetc.This is due to the enormous amount of time it takes,to accurately collate & check such data.Smaller & less developed country's Wiki entriesare far less detailed,and often missing much of the nescessary data.Any assistance would be much appreciated.Over time, & where possible,such rewards will be updated to similar categorisation scope.I had only intended releasing 1 UPDATES pack per month.I've just been "clearing the decks" recentlyby releasing compiled rewards based on previously collated datasets.So bottom line -Recommend you download whatever's been released to date. Each package download is less than 3MB,so shouldn't be a major inconvenience.Have fun.HTHATBPaulResized logo pending ;-)http://www.fs-odg.com
