I have been following these threads all since the beginning - I decided I would open an account to offer a suggestion/idea/method only to find I already had one...
Has anyone tried taking a pencil or a crayon using a ruler and drawing on their (paper) maps or a copy thereof, lines (to line up) what some of the these clue are aimed at... not just the sculptures (because NOBODY likes that idea since it doesn't involve bigfoot sex at 3am), but the arrows, the glyphs, all that stuff... do it in an image editing program if you must... but really, if you want to try and see if there is something to this just use a friggin' pencil on your paper map...
This is what I had been thinking but had been putting off...
Please take your time and read this post closely.
First of all forget everything you know about the mural. In addition you can only do what your charakter can do. That means NO goggle, NO forums (I will have to break this rule I am afraid...) etc. Only the stuff you have at hand in game.
-snip- (I truely apologise for this snip - I agree with the rest of your post completely! Hence this...)
If TLDR springs to mind, synopsis is at the bottom!
Long story short, I have become a tad interested in the mystery of the Mount Chilliad Mural and have read numourous threads, though most religiously this and the thread on the main board. I certainly think (read: hope) there is more to this than a wild goose chase and with so many ideas/finds/sights cropping up, they seem easy to lose in the 50 pages going back.
With that in mind, I have started to overlay a LS map in photoshop with layers covering (what I think) are points pertinant to the mystery / easter egg. I have however, started at a very basic stage.
Background: I enjoyed the game, got *achievement/trophy 100%* but have not explored all the avenues. I have however, seen both hippy & Zancudo UFOs, but not chilliad (note to all, no requirement for the others to appear). I have noticed a few comments about red arrows that have interested me but seem not to of been massively followed up.
I have started the map with arrow directions and glyph locations and am hoping that you (yes you) will help with locations for all the others - including the ones on Chilliad (inb4 "noob"). Why help me - the clear alternative is "use search button", but I am just asking that if you know where something is, please show me/us like this:
This serves 2 purposes - a) gives an exact location of findings and B) leads me nicely onto my next point...
I really don't think the arrows have been give enough time / thought. There have been a number of different sightings but (I don't believe) they have been explored thoroughly. This is one layer of the map I have a vested interest in producing - from a developer & artist point of view, would you put arrows in just for sh*ts and gigs? I don't believe so but please prove me wrong if I have overlooked something. I personally think the arrows will eventually 'point' to something (pun intended) or display something - maybe the lines on the mural?
Either way, I am looking for location references to upload onto this map which I will regularly update - as a side note, I am not a graphic designer / photoshop expert so this is where I will be spending alot of my time.
Hopefully one or two (or more) will be interested in helping build this map up into a real representation of clues. I am more than open to ideas - off hand, location of eye structures / monuments may be a good idea - but I really think something that the whole community can have an input into could be a real benefit to all of us.
I think this takes the spirit of McGyver55 and Grumbledore (to name just recent contributers) have to say which is very much in line with my thinking but it is also worth mentioning MysteryOfV and AnEvilVet for all of their contributions and keeping the thread on topis throughout bickering.
I aplogise if the image size is horrendous - I wanted the best quality image to start with... all images can be found:
TLDR?! Look at maps^^^, please give me locations of glyphs and arrows and please suggest other "points of interest" so they may be added!
All the best,
