    This means it will only show you 25 different files with "eiffel tower" in the name, if there are more than 25 files available, it will not show you the rest, you have to make your search more specific.. you can see an example of this by searching "plane" it only shows 25 (randomly selected) results, but we all know there are hundreds of planes in the file archive.

    I've just changed the script so that you can fly out 2-3 times further and it will still find the jewel. This will allow you to cover large areas (like the Grand Canyon) much easier.

    Along those lines, I might just remove the Grand Canyon from this aspect of the game...

    I downloaded that KML file, zoomed in to about 20 miles and it popped up.

    The KML files should be automatically centered on the correct location. All you should need to do (if anything) is zoom in.

    Stonehenge is odd.

    Or you had stonehenge somewhere, moved it, and then moved it back,

    Or there are 2 Stonehenges in the area.

    There are a few stonehenges in the database (a placemark, one with an overlay, one with some 3d models), although I'm not sure which ones have been flagged for jewels yet. Really, though, they should all be in about the same spot...
