Difference between calculated Locoins and price after download.

Hi,

i marked some area on the online map to download, in information it says it has scales from 7 to 16. After calculation cost was 282 Locoins. I go to shop and bouth 500 Locoins. After that i started download of interesting part of online map.

After succesful download it tourned out that i have payed only 80 Locoins and i have map with scale from 11 to 15.

Map is ok, these scales are ok, it is enough for me, but.... if i knew that calculations are wrong i would buy 100 Locoins, but if i even knew that and have bought these 100 Locoins then Locus would tell me that i have to few locoins because its calculation s are wrong!

So.... I have now 440 Locoins (500 + 4%)...

So, my question: is it always like this?


p.s. i bought SHOCart map.

Hi,


the problem is that SHOCart map contains in some areas map also in level 16 (the most tiles are available only up to 15 zoom-level. Locus only estimates the number of tiles (together with zoom-level 16 if you select it) . During downloading Locus summarizes real value of tiles and also the final price is corrected.


This issue happens only for maps which has different coverage in different zoom-levels (so only SHOCart maps are affected at this moment).

Ok, i understand... but it is not fair... i hope it is only one map which if i want to buy for 80 locoin, i have to have about 300 locoin in pool.

Ulmust, absolutely agree.


It's better then opposite, but it's not fair.


- Unfortunately, there is nothing we may do with this, because as Peter wrote - in level 16 has SHOCart maps only partial coverage.


- Fortunately SHOCart maps distributed as a map packs separated by area and not by tiles for download as now. This will change within one or two months, so problem will disappear.
