The map!

Trees talk, but only some people hear them - FACT!
You know, not every tree says the truth, the tree who told you that is lying - FACT!
The actual map is on the Dan Houser's ass and he doesn't show it to anyone - FACT!

And my post is an assumption - LIE!

The scar around the right eye of the Eplison dude is the map. I've always been convinced of this.

It changes in the Epsilon Screensaver:

I am 99% certain the mountain marked red is the same in all 7 screenshots.

As for the angles and orientation, not certain, just a theory.

I'm sorry mate but I'm afraid you're completely wrong with your mountains.
You seem to be confusing Mt Alamo and Mt Zancudo.
And in screenshot 4, you're even confusing those two with a third one!

The theory that everyone else is supporting (the Grand Unifier Theory) is the correct one.

Agree, there have to be two Alamo seas so the fourth picture made sense.

Not sure if this has been spotted yet:

Red sign centre screen left of Car Wash Arrow

http://i.imgur.com/52bBhDq.jpg

Sign again in the background between houses.

WHY THE f*ck IS THEIR HOOD BASICALLY DOWNTOWN.. f*ck !?

I honestly don't think that is the same red sign in both shots.

I would suppose that the car wash is much closer to downtown than franklin's hood.

god please i hope ure right..

Isn't that one of those things the police puts up with cameras and sirens in it? Don't know what they're called? Nazi-boxes?

That would be great! Will be funny to see if we've stumbled across something here tounge.gif

But it could also be wishful thinking. Guess we'll find out in a few months.

Maybe someone can put those 5 eye images over each other and see what the resulting shape is?

The eye looks the same in each so use that as the constant

Who's forcing you to look at it?

I, alongside most members of this forum enjoy this thread.
Or should it just be closed for you?

I tried that. Poor quality, but you can see the shape almost clearly smile.gif

You cant complain about the size of the city XZ - your only allowed to praise.

The city is too small.

Isn't there a good chance all the verticality we see in the screenshots make the map smaller? Imagine that all the mountains were flattened out and how much explorable space it would add horizontally. Some of those mountains are pretty tall and steep, so the map may not be as big one can imagine.
