I'm starting to think that if there is a jetpack in game,it is locked out.When I say locked out I mean there might be a timer that says you have to have so much time played in single player for it to unlock?It has to rain so many times to rust out the grates by the saw mill!
it also could be it is locked out until rockstar launches the heist dlc for multiplayer!It could also be a timing thing that has be executed perfectly for it to trigger?
Hehe, I long ago started thinking that if/when it's found, the answer is going to be so simple, and perhaps even so obvious, that there is going to be quite a bit of forehead slapping going on all over the world. I'll be one of the forehead slappers....XD
But by that logic, if it was so simple, then wouldn't it have been solved by now?
I think we've exhausted all the simple sh*t and we've MOVED UP to all this deep research involving overlaying of maps and stuff.
I think it's meant to be looked at like a complex puzzle
Not meant to be solved right away like how everyone got %100 in the first 2 days
This is meant to be a journey taken after the story mode to keep you occupied to find out some crazy stuff about San Andreas
I mean who knows, maybe the story mode wasn't even a fraction of the stuff we can do in the game
I say that because in over 30 years of games, many with hidden puzzles/eggs of some such, I've seen some kind of variation of this thread end in "Oh wow, How the hell did I/we miss that!?!?!" more times than I can count. Even before internet, I've seen rooms full of computer geeks and brilliant nerd types do the same thing at some of my father's work, back in the '80's.
People tend to assume that they've thought of all the simple, obvious junk, and get caught up in the extreme over thinking. Not surprisingly, this happens more often with higher degrees of intelligence.
Sometimes the answer is almost found early on in the search, but the path people were on at the time gets discarded for whatever reason. Sometimes the answer is so obvious people assume that it can't possibly be the real answer, and discount it immediately without even investigating. And sometimes there is just one or two pieces of key information overlooked that make an otherwise simple puzzle impossible to solve. Many things can happen, not happen, or otherwise go wrong, and throw everything off track, and who knows, there could already have been people within a hair's width from solving this, only to have been debunked has completely wrong because they didn't do one specific part of the solution exactly right.
That's not to say this isn't a complex puzzle in itself. But even the most complex questions can sometimes have the the most incredibly simple answers when viewed in hindsight and totality.
Just to contribute a bit more than some vague speculation on the human capacity to overlook, here's my thought on the mural itself.
I think it's literally a map of sorts, all by itself, and an instruction manual as well. I think all by itself it tells quite a bit more than some people give it credit for. I think it literally says that to crack the puzzle (cracked egg), you must follow these specific paths (the lines that I don't pretend to fully understand), and that the ufos are directly connected to the jet pack looking guy. I definitely am not surprised that this mural has led people to glyphs, and such, but I also think the entire solution is written on that wall when one fully understands it. It tells the steps, including finding various elements such has certain specific glyphs, and once the directions are followed, then the secret will unlock.
Needless to say, this isn't any brilliant revelation. I'm not the first to think this. I do however think that due to missing some key elements of info, people are starting to look for the missing pieces in a manner that the directions do not call for.
In turn, I think this is making things more cluttered and difficult than need be.
Personally, I would "hit the reset", re-organize, maybe form up some teams to chase some specific theories, and focus on the basics again for a bit. Brainstorming is great, and very productive much of the time, but once it gets too out of control, it just creates more work than it helps. And frankly, while there has been some real good work done on this, it's starting to look like it's reached that "out of control" state.
