Creating a Tile Package Larger Scale than 1:1128 for use in Collector

I've created a custom 1:1128 tile package for use in Collector, but I notice that I can't zoom in a far using MY tile Package as I can on the downloaded basemap from AGO, even though when I indicate the "Level of Detail" in the download dialog, it shows that I am downloading the AGO Basemap at 1:1128.  Can anyone explain this behavior, and how I can get the same zoom levels? The Share>Tile Package wizard doesn't seem capable of higher than 1:1128. Is this overzooming? If so, can I not do the same with MY tile package?

Can you right click on the tpk, then click on 7 Zip > Open Archive. See if your folder has a servicedescriptions folder and open up the file inside of the folder.

You will see a section in the JSON that will look like this:

},

       "minScale": 36111.909643,

        "maxScale": 1128.497176,

        "units": "esriMeters",

        "supportedImageFormatTypes": "PNG32,PNG24,PNG,JPG,DIB,TIFF,EMF,PS,PDF,GIF,SVG,SVGZ,BMP",

        "documentInfo": {

            "Title": "",

            "Author": "",

            "Comments": "",

            "Subject": "",

            "Category": "",

            "AntialiasingMode": "Best",

            "TextAntialiasingMode": "Force",

            "Keywords": ""

        },

The bold text shows the min and max scale for the tpk. I generated a test case with just a tpk with data and was able to get dow to the 1128 level. If you are missing a file or if those numbers a 0'd then there could be an issue when the tpk is being generated.

SPOT ON, Russell! Here is the referenced section from the JSON:

},

    "minScale": 0,

    "maxScale": 0,

    "units": "esriMeters",

    "supportedImageFormatTypes": "PNG32,PNG24,PNG,JPG,DIB,TIFF,EMF,PS,PDF,GIF,SVG,SVGZ,BMP",

    "documentInfo": {

      "Title": "",

      "Author": "",

      "Comments": "",

      "Subject": "",

      "Category": "",

      "AntialiasingMode": "Best",

      "TextAntialiasingMode": "Force",

      "Keywords": ""

    },

Any idea what would cause/how to troubleshoot that?

What version of Desktop are you using? I was using 10.2.2 when I created that sample tpk to generate that JSON above.

Same. 10.2.2. All the data is local.

What happens if I just change those values?

I haven't tested out changing the values with a tpk that has given me an output of 0,0 but it should work if you set it to the correct min and max of your tpk.
