It's very time consuming :(

I'm on 93%, it's very difficult with a full time job and a wife.


 

 
Get your wife pregnant, she will be asleep most nights leaving you plenty of time to get 100%. Worked for me so it can work for you. Side bonus is that you get a lot sex during the lead up........(not so much after)
 

That redditt link somewhere above about the hippy camp and Gordon is a great read. Seems promising and makes sense. Surprised it hasn't been jumped on.

This needs a lot more attention.

Agreed, adding to that, I believe a lot of the clue's at the Altruist camp now make more sence. "Embrace the light," "youre path is lit." I've been playing around near the el gordo lighthouse. I have found that the majority of the time the beam stopped pointing directly at Mt Gordo. You're path is lit?

Guys, the 'Perfect' game has NO glitches, game producers aim for their game to have NO glitches, so using one to activate something essential in the game, utter madness, but to glitch as a proof of existence, no problems!

---->NEW GUY HERE, just want to say I respect a lot of your theories (as crazy as they are) and have been following this on all kinds of blogs, I just reached 100% this morning and have found 4 ufos. 

 

-The first thing I noticed about the Mt Chiliad UFO (as Franklin) is the hatch on the bottom lights up when you zoom in with the sniper rifle

-Even when you get too close and it turns invisible, you can still zoom in and see the light come out, even when it seems to disappear, it's still there like the other 2 and the light still comes out when you zoom in.

-The hatch on the Sandy Shores one just keeps opening and closing

 

My theory is certain requirements have to be met in order to be abducted, 3 ufos, 3 protagonist, each location of the ufos is relevant to each protagonists:

 

-Mt Chiliad UFO - Franklin (Children of the Mountain member) - The only one of the 3 to be able to join COTM

-Sandy Shores UFO - Michael - For obvious reasons (He's already been abducted)

-Fort Z - Trevor - Military background, Pilot, badass UFO

 

I'm going to go on record saying that all 3 UFOs can be piloted, they have solid in game models, in game assets, and have been meticulously design to suite each character, the Fort Z one has moving parts blades and claws, why go through so much trouble to design it....take the UFO models and give them helicopter controls and boom....even an re-re could see that.  Anyways that's just my 2 cents.....keep up the good work!!!

If anyone is wondering how alabama got that pic from "outside" of the map, I invite you all to replay the mission were micheal and trevor go to north yankton. after the gun fight in the cemetary you switch to trevor flying back to los santos. Look where you are with him, THE SAME PLACE HE TOOK THAT PIC. hope that helps, my opinion not that its worth anything.

The character switch thing is NOT NECESSARY BECAUSE ; When you switch to another char, the last character will be "teleported" elsewhere after a couple of minutes. So NO, this is not correct.

I will say this again : don't ask HOW but WHY, the lines, the thunderbolt, the dead end lines, why the UFO and the Jetpack are connected etc etc.. Just ask yourself WHY and no HOW, and when we will understand the meaning of EACH glyph AND the mural, we'll be able to get it solved.

Lol that bloody 3rd triathlon took me ages. I kept crashing at the end of the bike race. Its a pain.

Ive had a good study of the paper map and ive got to say im sorry but i just cant see any words.
I could, if i wanted to, make any word or sentence fit pretty much anywhere on that map or for that matter any other map.
When there is a grid work of roads its not hard to make somthing fit if you try.

I'm not saying the idea is bad or that because i cant see anything that theres nothing there but for now im going to carry on with my own theories.

Sorry i couldn't confirm it for you fatts.

The lighthouse spins when shot, meaning you can place it facing a certain direction. Apparently.

 

I am very intrigued by Zukitronic's Reddit post, and think that's what we should be following. It seems a lot more logical than EVERY other theory i've heard. Sure, we've found clues like the glyphs and arrows, but nothing as convincing as what he's come up with. I just wish i could remember my Reddit login so i could give him my input :p

 

Saying that, i also think the arrows should be followed/figured out. Again, i'm absolutely certain that the Altruist camp is not where that arrow at the monument is pointing to. Like i said before, it would be weird for the 'first' two (because i'm not even convinced that the tower with the sand glyph is actually the first arrow either) to be so close AND be the only two arrows... I just wish somebody else would help investigate this side of things.

offtopic but i had to react on this. That last triathlon is a real f*cker. 1st corner when you reach the beach on the bike race... I kept hitting a guy in the audience like 3 times...

pretty hatefull..

another member stag40297 tgpi h or something posted 2 pics not long after og himself out in the same location, he didnt say much afterwards so i'm thinking its completely a normally achievable location via normal flight, when i finish work i'll check it out as well

I'm on 93%, it's very difficult with a full time job and a wife.
I have to check my spaceship parts to Omega (was going to do that last so I get the Docker at 100%. I may take the piss, but I think the Docker will have some part to play), get par at golf, win a game of tennis, a couple of street races and a couple of off-road races.
Doing the last triathlon now. I'll tell you what, I keep having to pause it, far too unfit. I wouldn't mind, but this is the second attempt; on my first I ran someone over 25 mins in and got disqualified for illegal activity!
I guess my rather verbose point is: I'll be able to properly join the hunt in the next couple of days. Pretty sure there's a pixel on the map that hasn't had the Spacedocker cargobobbed to. I'll start there :)
I notice CVG are focusing on "the alien trail", which is to do with the arrows and the Wow signal, so that may be something. They also don't appear to know that it is the Wow symbol though, so maybe not.
But it at least shows that people who play games for a living, are looking for obvious signs - arrows etcetera.
I don't see any cargobobbing the Spacedocker to the top of Mount Chiliad.

 
Thing is, i would go for 100%, but with the arrival of BF4 tomorrow, i think i'll be on that instead for a bit.
 
I've been following CVG for a looooooong time, and i watched their Alien Trail. Which is mainly why i picked up on most people thinking the arrow points towards the Altruist camp. I just don't think that it leads there or ends there... There's just not enough there for that to be it.
 
 
After watching a few more videos on Youtube, part of me is convinced that the mural is just a puzzle in which, upon solving, tells you how to get the UFO to spawn above Mt Chiliad (all the little glyphs add up to the requirements - seemingly). But then again, the glyph with the rain cloud under the UFO also appears at the Alien Monument in Sandy Shores. I don't know if that's been picked up yet as i've only just realised it's there. I don't know what it means, it's possible you have to be on 100% to get anything from that.

I agree in part, that the glyphs can be interpreted as being for the holo UFO. But I just feel that not all of them can be explained that way.

I personally think - as has been mentioned by many people - that the glyph colour is significant. I think they occur in sets

Ive done a lot of playing with the lighthouse. I still have a simular theory to you on it and will revisit when I'm up to date with what I'm doing now.
I havent been following arrows anywhere as they all seem to point to understandable things to me but ones pointing up hills i havent looked at.

A lot of people have said that the light is a glitch and that glitch was patched so now the light doesn't stop revolving.
I havent looked since the patches so i can only repeat what has been said. Check it out if you like.

I suggested a while ago that i think the drawing can line up with gordo but as i didnt post a picture people think that as it can be lined up with the glyphs on chiliad its a non starter.

The only reason i knew that was because i recently started agian for the expressed purpose of testing the bullsh*t theory of "karma" which i belief i can debunk, im at 100%(again) without killing any of the "decision kills" and absolutly nothing is different from what i can tell, same reaction to the chilliad ufo. same everything.

the light house is still moveable but only from the little platform attached to the lighthouse itself, however as soon as you leave the area e.g jump into the water, it starts spinning again.

I have all patches installed and can confirm the light still stops revolving. Didn't have to shoot it though, just looked up at it.

In the shack on the floor south of the lighthouse is a newpaper clipping that reads:

Narwal?

Bacon?

Is this common to anywhere else?  I've only seen it here personally.  This could mean a few things if you google these words.

A couple pages past i posted 2 pics of relatively the same area he was in and this was not through any mission . I simply flew there .if someone could post pics taken from NY and compare them side by side with one of mine or alabamas we can put this to rest right now . If it is the same location we should be able to simply fly to NY but we cant .

Not looked through every single post in this thread but about the red X's and heists. Seems to me ok there are 5, and 5 X's on the Mt Chiliad mural. Seems to me then you need to get the Gold achievement in each heist.

 

100% would be irrelevant possibly, and is for the UFO part of things. So might be separate objectives.

 

Or, you need 100% AND gold in the heists. Then, something happens from there...

Oke a small update about this reddit post
Been testing these things  sofar:
no red dot on gordo only to things red there are the lights from the antenna and the red yoga carpet i can only see as micheal
been standing on the top of gordo , the yoga mat , and the building with the antenna at 3 am full and no fullmoon with or without rain no ufo
also checked in the air with a chopper above all 3 above named points no luck
couldnt find anything odd on the dead trees there are loads like them in the game
for me it ddnt suddenly went dark and had no rain without cheat
for the zigzag road i ddnt find any road close to what is refered to (imo the zigzag is no road its clearly a beam but thats imo)
another thing i keep having when i go up to chiliad 5 out of 6 times it starts raing at 2:45 2:50 without a cheat and the ufo spawns at 3:00 without lightning anyone else having that??
 
hope it helps happy hunting

That's why i assume the mural is purely to 'teach' you how to get the UFO to spawn (i no longer believe it's just a hologram/projection). It definitely, 100% lines up with Mt Chiliad and the glyphs. And each glyph gives you a condition. Atleast, almost each glyph gives you a condition. Some don't really make sense. I guess i could be wrong. But we have 'be up a mountain', 'be there when it rains', 'be there at 3am', and then some i don't know.

 

I don't think the mural lines up with anything else at all, because it lines up perfectly with Chiliad at the right angle. UNLESS, that's a decoy.

Ive just read the reditt thread. Interesting to say the least.
I dont agree the space docker is the key there but i wish i wasnt out all night so i could explore the theories a bit more.

I believe he said the red spot was more of a brown spot that was more of a place run off water collects.
He says its down the other side of the mountain some way.

If you had read his entire post, which i have to assume you didn't for this reason, there IS a big red patch on the floor at the end of a path down one side of Gordo. His suggestion was for somebody to sit in that in the Space Docker, i believe.

 

I kind of agree about the glyph though. At first i thought it was a UFO beam, but in all other glyphs the icon under the UFO seems to be a condition, so it being a mountain fits the bill.

 

I was also convinced that that 'UFO' in the glyphs wasn't actually a UFO either because the UFO in the box on the mural is completely different. Instead, i thought maybe it's an eye. As in 'LOOK at this time/place/condition', not necessarily 'UFO at this time/place/condition'.

 

I haven't got 100%, so i don't have the Space Docker, so i can't test it... But, with a reference being made to the Wow! signal, i guess it's possible that the 'weird' sound that the Space Docker's horn makes every so often is actually the sound of the signal. Maybe playing that horn sound, while on Gordo, maybe in the red patch, in whatever other conditions there might be suggested in various places, something could happen. That is only IF that is the sound the Space Docker makes. It's a bit of a dodgy sound so i'm not sure that is it (i haven't heard the horn).
