Stars
Posted by eDiver on April 6, 2009 at 5:37 pm in Simulator - Tips
The "Stars" shown in your profile do indicate your level of expertise with eDiving.

You get the first half star when you complete the Orientation Pool then you get the first full star when you complete the Open Water Orientation dive.
When you have 1 star you can dive to a maximum depth of 20m/66ft.

To get the SECOND star you will need to perform 10 dives (without aborting them) longer than 3 minutes and deeper than 10m/33ft.
When you have 2 stars you can dive to a maximum depth of 30m/99ft.

To get the THIRD star you will need to perform 10 dives (without aborting them) longer than 4 minutes and deeper than 20m/66ft.
When you have 3 stars you can dive to a maximum depth of 40m/130ft.

To get the FOURTH star you will need to perform 10 dives (without aborting them) longer than 5 minutes and deeper than 30m/99ft.
When you have 4 stars you can dive to a maximum depth of 50m/165ft.

To get the FIFTH star you will need to perform 10 dives (without aborting them) longer than 6 minutes and deeper than 40m/130ft IN THE PAST 20 DAYS!!!
When you have 5 stars you can dive to a maximum depth of 200m/656ft.

Every time you get a new star you will receive 50 Bubble Credits
When you have 5 stars, every time you performed a qualified dive you will get Bubble Credits. The amount of Bubble Credits that you will receive could range between 6BC to more than 27BC and it will depend by the Maximum Depth, Average Depth and bottom time of your dive.

For a dive to count you need to make a SAFE ASCENT and properly EXIT the dive.
Whenever you are under water and you press ESC, it will say ABORT. If you are on the surface, it will say EXIT.
If you abort the dive, it will not be counted as a dive.

Unless you have the Technical Diver Plaque - Magic Trinket ..... YOU CAN LOOSE A STAR !!!!
If you have 5 stars but you have not done a qualified dive in the last 21 days you will loose your 5 stars status.
If you own the Technical Diver Plaque - Magic Trinket you will NOT loose your fifth star.

If You have lost your FIFTH star, to get it back you will need to perform 10 dives (without aborting them) longer than 6 minutes and deeper than 40m/130ft IN THE PAST 20 DAYS!!!

To get the Technical Diver Plaque - Magic Trinket you can either buy it or find it ..... but, like every other trinket, You can loose it.
Make sure that you hide it somewhere AND visit him at least once every 21 days!

What are the rules concerning those who have gained their 5th star?
How deep does each dive have to be in order to continue earning bubbles?

Once you have 5 stars, any dive - properly completed with no alarms - longer than 3 minutes and deeper than 10m/33ft will get you some Bubble Credits
