Checkers for CAT Challenge trail in Canada

0 votes

I would like to see checkers for every challenge in the CAT challenge trail in Canada. The challenges can easily be found on the challenge map (updated link). Only those in the trail itself are included in this task, there was a few other challenges a bit away. You are of course welcome to write for those as well, but they are not included in the request.

I have looked through many of them, and they all seem to be very easy to write checkers for. It would be enjoyable to see a whole challenge trail covered with checkers. Might be the first?

And since I am the owner of Project-GC, I will even add some rewards for this task. When every challenge in the trail has a checker, excluding those where it's technically not possible, I will send 2 years of membership to Project-GC to these persons:

  • The top 3 who created the most tags for the trail. If the one who created the most checkers, has twice as many as the second one, he/she will claim 2 of the 3 rewards, and there will be no third person.
  • The last 3 unique persons who created tags for the last caches in the trail. And by last I mean the last to get checkers, it has nothing to do with the order on the map or the order of publishing. (I hope this was clear, ask otherwise and I will try to explain). To claim this award, you must have created tags for at least 3 caches in the trail, otherwise the price will go on to the next one.

Answer in this thread when you want to claim your rewards!

PS! It's appreciated if you also post an answer for every checker you have created, so that I/we can feel the progress.


The following was moved from the Carni-checker-thread, I wrote it all in the wrong one. :/

UPDATE 141119 #1

Checkers are now created for all challenges in the trail. I have been verifying them and found that there might be issues with these:

They all have a high rate of "not ok" when running verify.

UPDATE 141119 #2

1989: Wrong number, should be 50 required, not 75.

1995: Wrong attribute, should be 8, not 9.

2019: Should be 3 needed, not 15. The attribute should be 65 and not 66 (if I am not wrong).

2220: Attribute should be 14, not 148, there are not 148 attributes.

UPDATE 141120 #1

All checkers seem to work as intended now. From what I can see it is only GentlePurpleRain and Target. who has created checkers on the trail, I will therefore send them 2*2 years each. They will be sent within 5 minutes from now. You are allowed to do what you want with them (sell, use, give away, throw away, carpent your walls with it ...)

You will receive coupon codes as a notifier at Project-GC. Make sure you save it or use it before you remove the message or you won't find it again (if it happens, contact our support). A real messaging system will be created at PGC at a later point in time.

Just to be clear, as I wrote, "When every challenge in the trail has a checker". Therefore no memberships has been handed out yet. This was with the exception for those where it isn't possible due to different reasons. About 50% of the caches are still missing checkers. :)
Question updated, rewards sent, case closed. :)

Punkunicorn seems to have done them with his generic attribute checker

It's actually Target who did them, using pinkunicorn's script. But only about 50% this far.

The entire trail is now tagged.

Thank you. I will go through them and make some form of sanity check. After that I will send out coupon codes to the "winners". I will update my original post with status of what I have done.
