I might be on to something here...
 
 
SO..... I have been thinking about these red arrow signs that lead you to the hippie camp and then away from it. No one has been able to find anything more after hippie camp - the trail goes cold...
 
 
However... I started looking at it differently... really trying to figure out what direction the arrow was actually pointing. I concluded that I thought it might be pointing more to the left... so I set a waypoint and went to investigate. And what I found is really making me think. It lead me to those giant tanks in the middle of nowhere - the ones that have all the alien writing like the hippie camp. I had forgotten about them actually. My first thought was, connection! The writing at the camp and the writing here. Maybe THIS is what the arrow was pointing to. Then I saw it! Not only does the writing match, but there is a little Red square sign there - like a stop the search here type of thing. The arrow lead to an arrow that then in turn lead here, and this is the end of the line sign I think. It matches the arrows pretty well. I haven't had time to really explore very much there.

ALso.... along the way I encountered the tap dancing hillbilly behind his house, I'm sure you've all seen him. What caught my attention though, is he shows up on the mini map as a blue dot - like a strangers and freaks dot... but I cannot figure out how to interact with him. But he must be more significant than just a humorous thing to see if shows up blue.

Ok I took the space docker to Gordo at 3am while it's raining.

 

Nothing happened. 

 

But, I have honked the horns on the space docker a million times, usually there are 4 horns. On top of Gordo, there was a new horn, now that I have left Gordo this horn wont come back, it's the usual same 4. 

something is missing, I believe its the moon phase.

 

 

Yeah, i'm gonna need more than a "Went there at 3 in the rain and nothing" to have this theory shot down.

 

The horn thing is interesting, if it's true. There is supposedly one rare horn. It's possible that you only heard that on Gordo by coincidence and it'll be a while before you hear it again no matter where you are. Or it's also possible that it was the calling but because everything wasn't in place at the right time it didn't work.

 

Were you on the red splodge?

 

Ok I was being dumb and totally messed the whole thing up :p

 

No I wasn't on the red spot. And I spammed the sh*t outta the horns later on and found that missing horn again.

 

So now, I will retry on the red spot.

I really don't understand this topic. The mural is a guide on how to see a UFO. Nothing more to it. This game is about robbing banks and cars. Rockstar didn't spend five years making a gigantic treasure hunt. They didn't delay the game six months to put cobwebs, eggs, and jet packs (completely unrelated to the main story) in their game so a few thousand people on a forum could get their 5 seconds of "wow that's cool".

I must admit, I'm interested by some of the theories people have come up with, but this is a Grand Theft Auto game, not a Grand Easter Egg Hunt game.

:whistle: yet here we are

Glad to see someone else is taking interest in those damn tanks. I posted these a while ago but got completely ignored. There can't be nothing there, I mean it has the same symbols as the hippie camp.
 
Also, I heard someone say that the camp is based on a real place in 'Slab City' or some such? I bring this up because the area that these tanks are in is called Slab City. I believe these tanks may be significant and should be further investigated.

And regarding the moon topic. 

 

Can someone make a chart of every moon phase this game has?

you probably are in the wrong thread, for stories and mission, there are other threads to select. i can guide you to those threads where you can  get help with robbing banks and looting stores.

Sorry about the white text. Dunno why it did that...

 

The forums are impossible to use on my phone.

I think the problem is, too many people are fixated on it being the "Mt Chiliad" mystery and have the mural in mind. So anything that isn't directly related to those is generally ignored...

 

I also picked up on these towers. I'm almost certain i saw some more somewhere but i spent about an hour looking for them tonight and just couldn't find them. So, i think i imagined it. I really really think more effort needs to be put into the links with these paintings and where the arrows point and what not.

Regarding those tanks: I saw these early in the game (I actually thought they were on the east coast for some reason, maybe there is another set of them....). I went back several times and each time I climbed on top' there were hippies doing yoga on the top, and they say hello or something. For what it's worth.

Thanks very much for helping me solve my mystery. I now feel really confident that it'll be a successful robbery every time I walk into a 24/7. Perhaps you'd also be kind enough to tell me when you've solved your mystery too.

You can hover over the lighthouse in a buzzard and the light will stop until you look at it, and you able to direct it much better as well as see better.

If the mural is a guide to see the UFO and nothing more, it is the worst guide to anything ever made. It has 5 boxes when there are only 3 conditions to see the UFO, it has a picture of an egg and a jetpack that are entirely meaningless, it has a myriad of interconnecting lines that serve no purpose. And furthermore, you can learn all of the conditions for the UFO without ever looking at the mural. Obviously Rockstar had bigger concerns when developing this game than creating say a cobweb that appears for only one hour a day, but nevertheless they put it in there and the type of person that frequents this thread is curious to know why.

I think it needs done while the scientists are at Big Ear so they pick up the signal. The one they check points toward Gordo.

I'm becoming fairly confident the space docker is just a novelty.

If you want all 3 characters together and struggle with switching between you just ask them all out then drive them there.
They stick with you until you take them home.
Sorry for going over this again but i thought some of our new members would benefit.

I JUST HAD AN EPIPHANY GUYS!!! PLEASE Consider this.... Don't know if this theory has been posted before... But If not, you guys are going to owe me a huge one for figuring out the sheer simplicity of it....

0_0.jpg

The aliens on top of the silos are not making random poses... THEY ARE FORMING LETTERS!! If someone else has mentioned this in the 275+ pages I apologize but I haven't seen it... I am currently working on attempting to decode them... They might be written backwards or upside down, but they are not random poses, that is for sure!!

Some theories are ridiculous though. Say for example I came up with this theory. "Mount chiliad is on the same island as grove street. Grove street also appears in gta San Andreas. That game was released in 2004. There's a jet pack and a mount chiliad in that game. You can see how this all ties in together. In 2004, Halloween was on the 31st October. The same date as this year. That's why there's a cobweb. CJ was the main character in gta sa. Clearly this means he shot j.r., a character in the show Dallas. Obviously this means the jet pack is in Dallas. The only way to solve the mystery is to get in the blimp and fly south west." This is the kind of sh*t on guy can come up with, and leads hundreds of people on a search for something not there.

All this talk of the space docker (still) got me to thinking, there doesn't seem to be any real rewards in this game at all. The space docker and epsilon tractor both feel like booby prizes, the letter scraps leads to nothing but a news report, finishing the story only gives a few outfits, 100% wins you a T-shirt (Wowee!). If nothing comes of this hunt, we've really been stiffed by Rockstar.
