The $500,000 to bring to the docks

Recommended Posts

tresshold

The distance from Raton Canyon isn't exactly 0,5 miles because it's obviously rounded off, but it's very near to 0,5 miles. On the contrary the road you mention is one entire mile or more past the bridge of Raton Canyon, and this is a too much big difference. Moreover the first interruption of the guard rail past the bridge correspond to the dirt road to the dock, coincidentally it's on the left (like the arrow). If you want to go to the right you will found another dirt road but it doesn't lead to any dock, the same if you turn right before the bridge. Still not convinced?

my neither !!

 

but go to the docks obvious doesn't do anything to.

I'll try to go there while on a smugglers mission to see if anything happens.

 

 

maybe you have to walk from lago zancudo.

or with a 5* wanted level.

if you go a little further past raton canyon and follow the dirt road that goes

behind paletto bay you end up at a dock to. (the one with the skydive chopper)

I'm not saying this is the place but could be just as the sonar docks.

 

the sonar dock isn't 0,5 miles from raton canyon, its shorter.

this dirt road I'm talking about is just a 'little' further.

 

 

I have to say, if there IS anything for us to find, it would likely be at the dock in Paleto Bay that you're talking about. It has a decent dirt road that you actually have to follow, where as the sonar dock has more of a dirt driveway.

I just wanted to show the possibilities that there could be more to it.

hoping to give ideas to others.

My God.

he has nothing to do with this.

only with death, murder and sexual violence.

I tried the docks at Paleto bay both online and offline and yes it was exactly $500,000 100% and i have CE. Still nothing tho

-When on the great ocean highway, as soon as you enter Raton, the dirt road is .48-.49 miles(GPS)

-the docks cost 250,000 and you get 250,000 after you find them all(i havent)

-there are 6 X's in the instructions, 5 X's on the chilliad mural, although there are 6 slots on the Hippy Camp mound which is believed to be linked to the mural

 

just trying to help as this has bugged me also, wish i had a copy of the map.

what else to do other then follow the directions?

 

this is either something stupid not worth mentioning or something really big.

I'm starting to think there isn't a single solution for every clue in this game, maybe thats the conclusion.

 

this game is getting ridiculous with all its mysteries and clues that it is not even fun anymore.

 

I feel trolled by R*

im starting to feel like that too. but with the elaborate easter eggs in games like Black Ops 2 makes me still have hope. im thinkin the whole big "mystery" has to do with a step-by-step completion of the blue print map markings. but it's just another crackpot theory like ones we've read so many times

I'll add to this stalled thread... Maybe the <- means greater than or less than (for anyone who remembers math) Maybe somethings greater than the docs.

 

Haha, or maybe it's just a hit on housing prices and the economys decline since 2008-09

It doesn't take long at all for Trevor to get $500,000, when you first get to him he already has over $100,000. It makes since that it would be Trevor because of TPI but he can't even buy the docks can he?

I was thinking about this, and I actually think the whole instructions are, lets say, coded, heres why:

 

Why would you put instructions to get to a place, in a map? why not just an arrow to the spot and a "bring 500k cash" sign? it doesnt make sense, so, lets think it trough, this is supposed to be Trevor's private map right? I think "he" wrote that in there as a reminder to himself, but in case someone stole his map (in this case, us the players), he would put that in there to decieve, to bring that person to the wrong spot. and only he knows what the instructions really mean

 

also, if the metaphor does mean that we the players are the ones who stole his map, then I think it has to be done online, as the online character "represents" us, plus only online you have "CASH"

 

ima try to decipher it, I really think those docks are just a diversion

I wondered if this might be a little trolling from r* in that people would set up ambushes for people online bringing 500k to the docks ie setup by tp

Has anyone managed to start in lago zancudo with one star and get to 5 stars by the time u get to the end of to dock? Driving the directions. Like it's a challenge? I tried a few times with all 3 characters at once and individually but kept getting killed. It's actually quite hard. I haven't tried with a tank though. I'm betting that everyone that has gone to the docks with 5 stars has done it with a helicopter.

 

The cash thing I don't think matters. You are told as Michael to bring cash to the epsilon mansion before the last misson. Just rock up at the mansion and he takes out cash from his pocket magically!

The Half Million is probably for an "Escape", playing off Breaking Bad.

 

Anyone gone to the docks and just... waited?

Wrong docks...

 

Go AT LEAST .5 miles past Raton Canyon, this takes you past the Sonar Collection Docks.

 

The next direction is to follow the guardrail until it ends and then turn left.

 

Well, if you go .5 past Raton Canyon, then pick up the trail from there as the map states, following the guardrail, then the dirt road, you come to a different dock.

 

Not that it matters, nothing happens at this one either but, at least the directions fit this one.

 

Nothing links the Sonar docks to the map if you FOLLOW the directions, it is only assumed to be the correct dock because it was assumed first, that's the only reason.

 

If people had actually read the directions and followed them to the right docks then there would be no debate about it.

Where does it say at least? Just says 0.5 miles past raton canyon. No at least in the message. Its just rounded up to 0.5. If someone said to u its half a mile, would u dismiss ur destination just cause it was under half a mile away? Keep going past it until something which is 4 miles away also matches ur destination

This doesn't make sense. Why would you round it down instead of just following the directions as they are written?

 

Go .5 miles past Raton Canyon, ok?

 

Now that you are .5 miles past Raton Canyon, follow the guard rail until it ends. It's simple logic.

 

The .5 was obviously chosen so you would PASS the first dock. If they had just said follow the guard rail without the .5 miles first then you would end up at the submarine dock.

 

Again, it doesn't say .5-ish miles. it say go .5 miles and then follow the guard rail, this isn't rocket science.

 

EDIT: What i'm getting at is the .5 miles has no place in the directions unless it is there to get you PAST the first dock. Otherwise it is an un-needed step, they could have said to simply follow the guard rail with no miles to watch.

 

So, if someone could explain why the .5 is there and how it leads to the dock at the same time, then please be my guest.

False logic, you're making your own rules when they are clearly set out in front of you.

Your turning a blind eye to the truth. Here is my opinion on why your wrong.

 

It says .5 miles PAST Raton Canyon which, to me at least, means that you should start counting your steps once you leave Raton canyon leaving the turn to the sonar docks at .25 miles away. But I"ll get back to this in a minute.

 

If you want to start from the begining of Raton Canyon it is about .48 miles away which you could think close enough, but why wouldn't they round down to .45 instead of up to .5?

 

Not to mention if you do wonna round up that .2 miles then why bother mentioning when the gaurd rail ends? I mean your already past it, so why even mention it at all? R* could have just as easily just said <- at the dirt road

 

If for whatever reason you're not starting to doubting yourself yet and are still 100% convinced that the sonar docks is the location. Then, why in gods name would they have a redundent instruction? What im talking about is that when the guard rail ends it is a dirt road and only a dirt road (both on the left and on the right) so what is the point of having both "<- when the guard rail ends" AND "follow the dirt road" they could have easily taken out "when the guard rail end" or taken out "follow the dirt road" and it would of taken you to the sonar docks without having confused the player at all.

 

However if you start counting your steps at the end of Raton Canyon, which I belive is the case, then you will be a fair way past the beginging of a rail guard when your .5 miles ends and when that guard rail ends far up the road it will lead you to the trolly up Mt Chiliad ("<- when the guard rail ends") and take a left just before that. If you follow that road it will then convert into a dirt road ("follow the dirt road") that will lead you next to a pier, just SWS of it there is a Jet Ski Dock. You starting to see why people think it's in this area?

 

And to be even more nit picky did R* all of a sudden forget their own easter egg and make the sonar dock property, if this is the place/purchase, a price that cant even be rounded to the number on the back of their own map?

 

So, IMO your looking at the wrong place for the wrong reasons, probably cuse your to lazy to look else where. And If someone is gonna try to counter argue me, please for the love of god bring a legitimate reason other then I'm being too nit picky

 

 

On a side note and this could very easily mean nothing at all. But I did notice that at the truck stop/gas station in Lago Zancudo there is an X on the floor. Maybe look for one (or several) near the pier?

http://rsg.ms/1j5TGAl

 

 

 

Also I have heard some speculation that this easter egg is not in the game due to this dock or pier not being in the game (it is on my map and my SE map) opinions?
