Okay so something crazy just happened. I was waiting in that elevator room for something to happen and at around 7-8am ingame time, a group of 3 soldiers casually walk in there and the elevator opened but since i wasn't really paying attention, they suddently saw me and shotguned me to death.
So, I can confirm that the elevator does at least open and goes down (or up? why would there be an up arrow if there is nothing above it except for a UFO high in the sky). Now is there anything down there that is useful to use? That's a whole different question.
Sorry to say but I don't think glitching is going to get us anywhere.
When you glitch, you're forcing the game to go against itself
So if you haven't had the correct access to the elevator,(access we most likely have to earn somehow) of course it's not going to let you keep going.
Stop trying to take an easy way out, its not going to do anything but discourage everyone from trying anything to do with the elevator
We need to try to figure out how to legitimately get in there
My guess is that we have to get the soldier uniforms somehow
Soldiers are the only ones that are really allowed into the fort and the GTA franchise has had MANY missions involving dressing up to go undercover.and infiltrate a place
How is this glitching? All it's doing is giving me easy access to figure out something that no one has been able to do. Being able to get in there without dying isn't making the game go against itself. Because cheats or not, you would get in there the same way. By that I mean lets say you did have to get army clothes, well you would be going in there undetected compared going in detected then waiting 3 hours for the alarms to stop.
And secondly, How is this discouraging people? What I just did has been the first ( proof that this elevator moves which is going to make everyone want to try and find out how to actually do it without cheats and get into it and see whats underneath.
Like I'm not trying to be a dick at all but it's a big find and I'm just going to get critized for it?
I admit I'm wrong and apologize
I've seen numerous people talking about trying to get into the elevator by way of glitch
I thought you were trying to say you were one of those people that go in the elevator
And by the discourage comment I made, I was just saying how we all get hyped up about a location for a few days ( Hatch, Chiliad etc) but if we get no results, everyone ditches that spot without being a hundered percent sure there wasn't a clue there
You seem to know what you're talking about so this is my bad
I don't want to come off as ignorant or a prick seeing as how these forums have helped me a lot
Sorry again mate and cheers
