The Diverse Cacher


pgc-badge.php?icon=TheDiverseCacher&quality=D&.png Log Geocaches with different cache types during the same day to work on this Badge.

Loops

It's not possible to get any loops on this badge. Since there aren't enough geocache types to double up Diamond, that wouldn't be a solution. We could however add loops if the Diamond task was fulfilled multiple times, however, we believe that once is enough.

Addons

pgc-badge.php?icon=TheDiverseCacher&quality=D&addons=leapday&.png Leapday - By logging the amount of unique Geocache types required for Diamond on a single leap day, you will earn this addon.

History

This Badge existed in BadgeGen v3.

With the release of v4 in early 2020 the requirements were increased. Diamond was increased from 10 to 12. Two or three weeks later the requirements was decreased to something in between the two variants, lowering the Diamond requirement to 11. The increase is based on several facts like:

  • New Virtuals are published now and then.
  • Labcaches are getting more and more common.
  • Giga-events didn't exist when the v3 badge was balanced. Also, they are a lot more common now.
  • GPS Maze is a regular thing, even more than one per year sometimes.
  • Lost and Found is coming back, even though it's only every 10th year.
