Ok. I can't try this cos I don't have a black light but has anybody shone one on the NORMAL version of the map? Also regarding the mural, why is the fact we need a storm shown TWICE? They must mean separate things.

storm shown twice? oO

There's the lighting above the eye but ALSO the rain cloud glyph :)

I also believe, given the barebones style of the mural, that the lines in the bottom corners also mean something.

I believe he means the thunderbolt symbols.

Personally, I think these look more like the broadcasts coming from the RKO film studios logo IRL. This was a studio like MGM and Warner Bros and had a radio tower broadcasting these symbols out as their logo, like MGM has a lion.

There's a radio tower on top of Chiliad and it's set in a version of LA with Hollywood and film studios.

This logo also features at the end of Rocky Horror Picture Show, which also features aliens :\

Yes, I believe the radio, mobiles and car horns have all been done.

I was listening to another station, worldwide or some sh*t, and as I drove past the dishes at sandy shores i got a second of weird garbled radio chatter. Odd. Then it just... Went.

before the altruists camp theorie comes up again...

the glyphs have been discovered in the game files today. names are like that:
cs1_10_clue_rain01.cdr

they are transparent images.

as for the altruists camps. the paintings are only refered as decals. 99% possibillity that they are not linked with the mural at all!

Hey, thanks for the info. You think we can get a link or something where we can follow game file findings (if there is one)?

I thought it odd that the lines can kind of look like fence boards, almost like a small mountain with a tall fence around it keeping a village segregated..... ;)

was a post on reddit but the user deleted himself or was deleted so the post is gone.

as for game file findings check the website of openiv.

oh and the original mural was found too:
http://imageshack.us...4/9969/fzlc.jpg

seems like the X'es where complete from the beginning. but i am not 100% sure that this is the original file because i couldn't locate the file where it was placed.

Sorry, I can't believe that the altruist camp stuff isn't related in some way. Simply because on seeing the symbols there, you would immediately think 'pictures of the sun; they must worship the sun'. But the information gleaned from their website (written in morse code, clearly suggesting something of intrigue) goes completely against this, saying they hate the sun.

Maybe it isn't a clue. Maybe it's the Altruists have changed beliefs due to the presence of the Chiliad UFO? It's affected them somehow?

As we speaked earlier, yago might have something to do with the answer.

 

The praise him glyph, give thanks etc...  Now I found this.

The path looks exactly like the one on the glyph.  And it leads to the yoga place which has a view on Mount Chilliad.

Well, they could have made it easier on us and updated their bloody website. Or at least bleeted it; #welikethesunnow.

1. Going back to "The Hatch".

 

Has anyone taken the sub and parked it directly on top of the hatch and tried to directly ascend? The reason I ask is because of how "The Bomb" is picked up in the Merriweather dock mission.

 

2. Has anyone tried to map the mural lines to map lines IN Los Santos?

 

At this point, I think its fair to say that the meaning of the Xs is entirely unknown.

 

3. I'm beginning to think that the mural refers to multiple parts of the map and IS NOT just a simple overlay. As with any idea, I could be smoking crack, but the glyphs don't directly map to anything on an overlay, so why not "SECTION" the mural into pieces.

 

a. The mountain (metaphorically a pyramid) + all seeing eye + lightning/radio signals + "return once your story is complete" seems to be linked to the Chiliad UFO.

b. The UFO, Egg, and Jetpack boxes don't appear to map to an object on the map. They seem relevant to the overall solution.

c. The lines don't appear to map to mountain cartography

 

Thoughts?

The Xes show the location of the glyphs so you know how to make the UFO spawn.

Yeah, I was trying to overlay those on the roads of Los Santos earlier today, came up with a big fat nothing. Could very well still be possible though. I'm with you on the x's, lots of stuff has come close but never quite with that 'Eureka!' feeling. I was messing about doing all sorts with the mural; mirroring it, layering one side over the other, removing the boxes. Again, to no avail, but I'll keep going with it and let you know if I come up with anything.

Dude, they really don't. 5 boxes, 3 glyphs (to make the UFO appear anyway)

I agree, they don't map.

 

The boxes seem to overlay correctly, but, unless you're the one doing the overlaying, we as a community don't really know if this is the case. Hard to tell from just looking at a photo, it wouldn't be hard for someone to "make it fit". If it does then fine, but I'm skeptical. The reason is that you have to "stretch" the photo over the mountain to make it fit. I can't imagine R* would expect people to have Photoshop skills to figure the puzzle out.

 

If "X" marks the spot, perhaps there are 5 items required to reach Nirvana. There are sequences of 5 throughout the game. The PENRIS starts drive me crazy, both on the logo and on the ground. I can't tell you how many ideas I have had (and had to squash) because of those damn things.

 

I think we're on the brink and just need to keep on trying things. Eventually something is going to work out.

 

I have kids! This game is driving my Wife and kids insane now, LOL.

One hilarious side note.

 

There is an old movie called: It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world | Circa 1963.

 

Very funny movie if you haven't seen it, but very long.

 

These greedy nut cases all hear about a treasure hunt and scramble like roaches in a race to find it causing serious hijinks (comedy). Well "X" quite literally marks the spot. They keep looking and looking and can't find anything. That is until the good police detective (Spencer Tracy) in the movie notices two palm trees leaning inward making an X. The treasure is buried directly under the X.

 

LOL

 

It reminds me of us on our pursuit for the Egg. It's probably going to end up being something relatively mundane that we simply didn't connect.

 

The comedy along the way is the fun part gents. ;)

Solving the mystery is the fun way, People playing GTA V in a while will just check it all on google & be like "Ok"

But to actually have solved it together is really fun :)

If it's any use TrueZink

1. I noticed this just last night but, those sun symbols are the same looking as the symbols that represent the weather when you open uo the internet on the phone. In the upper right corenr you will see the day and the weather as it changes but, i dont think any of the other symbols match up, just coincidence probably?

 

2. WHERE do i find that barn?

 

The location is in the photo . Click the POI icon . This sun to me looks to represent dawn or dusk with the horizontal line at the bottom . Other referances to dawn are the red suns we see .

 

before the altruists camp theorie comes up again...

the glyphs have been discovered in the game files today. names are like that:
cs1_10_clue_rain01.cdr
 

Was there a complete list for these clue files ?

 

Ok. I can't try this cos I don't have a black light but has anybody shone one on the NORMAL version of the map? Also regarding the mural, why is the fact we need a storm shown TWICE? They must mean separate things.

I think this is a very good point . If the bolts were just in the top area by the eye i could see it representing an antenna but being that the bolts surround the mountain to me its showing me thunder .

Now we know it does not need to thunder to have the UFO spawn . We also have the cloud glyphs hinting at rain . So why is it shown twice ?

Looking at this simply as possibly ,without knowing what the glyphs mean or that the ufo will spawn . . . In the dark in rain on chiliad you cant really see anything .

With thunder and lightning there are flashes of light. The eye will show us the way in those flashes of light .

These threads have consumed me  lately but i love it and wanna thank everyone who has contributed . Together we will see this through .

I will continue my search . I am also starting a new game in the meanwhile to see if i perhaps missed any clues along the way .

Did anyone use the no walls glitches in order to glitch inside the mural room? What about the room right next to it on the other side?

Have we studied this closely?

 

9fxp.jpg

 

In Latin (5 Latin words):

 

"He [God] has favored our undertakings"

 

"New Order of the Ages"

 

1776 in roman numerals

 

13 levels in the pyramid

 

The Chiliad mountain mural shows light shimmering in the bottom corners but could also be a reference to mountain terrain.

 

I'm really stretching here, but has anyone dialed *1776?

 

Interestingly, "Perennis" means "everlasting" and was to be on the bill in the original great seal design. Seams like PENRIS may have at least been influenced from this albeit it is an anagram for SNIPER, or SNIPE (5 characters).

 

LOL

I think that regardless of how you do the overlay, the simple fact is that there are only 4 glyphs on that side of the mountain, one of which nobody has been able to assign a meaning to. (I'm not counting the man's face as it clearly doesn't match the rest. Even if it did, it still wouldn't fit the mural) I'm not for one second suggesting that the four that are there don't fit at all, because they clearly do. But,the mere fact that there is one missing suggests to me that this is Rockstar's way of saying 'there's more to it than that'. I get the feeling that a lot of people think this is raking over things that have been put to bed, but for me saying 'Three of them fit and those three tell you how to make the UFO appear, so that's all there is to it' just isn't a good enough answer. If there's five boxes/x's on the mural then there's a reason for each one of them and if that isn't the case then the idea of 'decoding the chiliad mural' goes out of the window.

May be where the missing x overlay of mount chililad is supposed to be is the entrance?We have found where 4 x's are so maybe the 5th is where x marks the spot!I know its a little simple thinking there,but has anyone tried?
