Community Content Challenge (#71): Around the World in 80 Hours
Author: Abbey Games
Contributions from: BlackVision, Liort


Welcome to a very special challenge in which you can win Steam keys and force Abbey Games to create more content! That's right: unlock content for everyone by playing the game. There's no time to waste! Abbey Games poses a challenge to this entire community and every explorer wanting for new content. Your goal: to bring back a certain amount of treasures from every individual expedition, within 80 hours. If you succeed as a group Abbey Games will create new content for Renowned Explorers as a reward.

Rules:
  • Play a game on the new version (Build #443, uploaded today, or later)
  • Your goal is to collect as many treasures as possible from each expedition.
  • Either screenshot your win screen, or the leaderboards entry for your game. You may even enter the screenshot if you lost.
  • Only one entry per player. You may replace your previous entry.
  • You must play on Adventure mode.
  • Play on Classic Difficulty. Normal is allowed too, but only if you have never participated in a community challenge before.
  • Everyone in the community will receive the same medal, as per the scoring below.

Scoring:
  • BRONZE: Summing all treasures per expedition over all entries, the Tier 1 threshold must be reached.
  • SILVER: Summing all treasures per expedition over all entries, the Tier 2 threshold must be reached.
  • GOLD: Summing all treasures per expedition over all entries, the Tier 3 threshold must be reached.

How to participate
Play the game, visit expeditions that the community still needs treasures for. Make a screenshot of your expeditions & treasures (Win screen or leaderboards entry) after you won or lost, and upload it here!

This sheet is available to coordinate your efforts.. However, in the end I'll make up the final score based on the screenshots posted in this topic.

Submit within 80 hours from now. That's by Saturday night, (03:00am CEST, 14/05/2017) (Or 05/14/2017 for those using MM/DD/YY)
(click here for your local time equivalent [www.timebie.com])

NOTE: Only one score will be accepted - only one submission for each player please. If you wish to enter a new score, please edit your initial entry and make it clear which score you are submitting, and add the word "EditGreenlight" to the entry so we can see immediately when the result needs updating.
*If you forget to screenshot the Win screen, you can also enter with a screenshot of your Leaderboards: Go to Main Menu > Leaderboards > Local > click the entry that matches your submission game > screenshot those details.

Actually, the reason the majority of games which have updates mid-week, set challenges, etc do so because that's
A) The least busy time of the week world-wide, allowing for smoother updates, etc;
B) is a wide timeframe that will fit within the changing time state of the whole world, whereas setting it for a time on a friday might, for example, be ideal for that latitude, but suddenly that's halfway through the weekend for the other side of the world.

A) Please check the link below. It leads to the workweek schedule for 20 of the biggest countries/areas in the world, on Wikipedia. I look forward to some factual proof your argument.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Workweek_and_weekend
B) Same as point 1. Give me some links that prove your statements. I have never heard release dates treated like that, even though I've researched the Games Industry heavily from Extra Credits.

I like to have the weekends off. If the challenges were Fri-sun it wouldn't be good for me, so I hope they never change it
EditGreenlight:
Did a new run with Andes included and more treasures in general

Highlands got counted 2 times and I got robbed off the Andean expedition which I wanted to do as 5th. Definitely the funniest Bug I had until now.
Does this count towards the challenge now or do I have to do another run?

It should still count, though I imagine the Highlands treasures will only count once.

And definitely worth a bug report.

All the Best,

rly ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t but no time this weekend, 1 time :3
Here's my contribution:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=923799031

Celtic: 2
Caribbean: 6
Egypt: 5
Emerged: 4
Lost: 5

Would have got one more in Emerged if only Emilia had gained another level of Naturalist by then. But still, hopefully helps.

All the Best,

Welsh Dragon.

Managed to grab 8 treasures in the Lost Island. It's so much easier to get them when you're not trying to visit every single node on the map.

I've had this issue once during the beta too! It was also after I finished the Highlands. Never managed to reproduce it though. You should definitely send to the developper your abbeycore of this session if you still have it.

And the list of treasures :

For the choices on the route and treasures, I can advise picking a team that suits you - we'll need input from as many players as possible - any submissions will go a long way towards helping out - and I'm sure the regular players will be able to help fill in any areas we're lacking.

As for actually getting the treasures, I recommend Liort's Treasure Guide (extreme spoilers alert!)

Thank you ^^
Ok, my modest contribution, hope it will be helpful for the challenge (I buy the game today and I can't play again before the challenge deadline) :

And a message to everyone: STOP DOING LAST 2 five-starred expeditions! There are ALREADY ENOUGH treasures. DO another 2,3 or 4 star one instead.
