Description of the issue:
I have successfully scanned a waypoint I created 10 times over the period of a day. I met all the requirements and submitted the VPS wayspot via the Niantic Wayfarer app. It has been processed and is not Active. However, when looking at the VPS coverage map at lightship.dev it hasn’t appeared on the map unless I select “not activated”. When I select the wayspot it doesn’t let me download the mesh even though I can see it. Everything is the same visually to a normal vps wayspot apart from that mesh download.

Hello Anders,

This issue was resolved through Discord, but I will post the solution here in case others have the same problem.

There is sometimes a delay in creating the default anchor that allows your mesh to appear and be downloadable on the Lightship Geospatial Browser. Bad lag can cause it to take ~1 day to appear, but it should appear within that 24 hours as it did in this case.
