The $500,000 to bring to the docks

Recommended Posts

jp9865

Regardeless what you believe or not. The directions are clear. I'm not making up rules. I'm following the directions to the letter. As your going through north chumash you will see the huge sign saying Raton canyon. This is your reference point for the 0.5 miles past. As I have previously stated you don't actually enter Raton Canyon. You Go past the road leading down to Raton Canyon

 

However it's all a bit of a moot point as nothing happens at any of the docks. And yes I tried all of them!

 

Just a thought. What if this is only available to people with the special edition game? We know that they get the stunt trials extra so maybe this is an extra secret just for them. I have the normal version so.............

I think its just me and you left working on this anyway!

 

But only a small portion of people have access to the message (without the internet of course) so maybe...........

 

Do you have the special edition? I'm going to retry tonight, see if the screen pulse happens again. After that I'm trying Franklin at the start of the game. It's gonna take so long earning $500,000 doing taxi jobs! :)

We should think? Ok maybe you should play the game and pay attention. Frank mathers is dead. He is not the guy in the chair. Now when he dies (before the game starts, or during the course of the game) is a different question. I agree with u about the docks. But Frank isn't the guy in the chair mate sorry.

 

You were even told in the mystery thread that Frank is dead. Pay attention mate

@lazyboy. It's a long process but if u wanna try it.

 

My theory is that the x's mean the heists.

 

6 x's in the message, 6 heists in game. (Not including prologue) now the first x is at the top meaning after the first heist but before the other 5. (X's at the bottom) after the first heist you unlock trevor. The using the gun running to make $500,000 the follow the directions. I did it yesterday (took me ages to earn the money) and nothing. But like I said I've only got the normal edition.

 

My other idea is that you have to do it as Franklin at the very start of the game. Earning $500,000 without doing any story missons. I'm gonna start this later.

 

After that I'm not really sure what else to do! :D I've tried most things. Maybe ringing oscar. (Gun runner dude) when your at the docks? First x means T (for trevor) last 5 x's mean oscar? Mackenzie field does say to contact Mr X. Just random thoughts now.

Not saying your wrong, just unlikely.

 

But the difference here is that Micheal's death was pre-arranged. and there is little info to indicate that frank wanted to stage his death, though plenty that indicated that his wife sabotaged the sub.

I have got 100%, the collectors editons, 2.14 billion, and there is nothing different about these docks. Durring the day people eat and drink around the club house, and fish at the end of the peir, and at night there is not a soul to be seen. A bf injection always spawns on the dirt road, but durring the day 1-2 random ped vehicles may spawn as well. I've shot, swam, exploded, talked, and killed everything in this area and i cannot find anything worth mentioning. Just a boat, a dingy and a sub, the clam under the docks, green floats under the docks, and rocks and sand.

@hellcattx,

 

Did you read my idea? Have you tried that?

 

@everyone who thinks it's the "dock" in paleto Bay with the parachute jump.

 

The reason I put dock in inverted comma's is because it's not a dock. Its a pier. If you don't know the difference, Google it, I'm not your teacher.

 

Oh and this huge sign.

 

http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/snapmatic/myphotos/photo/EwhUXUKYLUOgdpaH7xAjoA

 

As your driving through north chumash, like the directions say, you see this. 0.5 miles past Raton Canyon, <- when the gaurd rail ends. What does the sign say? I'll let you figure it out.

Though this I can not deny I for one never thought it was the pier (though I do refer to it a lot) and this might be where your testing in my area could be flawed (if your doing it that is)

 

Am still uncertain if to go past the stunt jump to a dock/pier that is on the map but not ingame or the Jet Ski dock south of the end of the pier (granted it is a tad hard to see from the road but then again I'm not bending as many rules)

 

 

Edit:

Also have you tried stocks to help speed up the cash flow?

I've had well over 500,000 with both m and f before unlocking t, there is no difference. I completed all side missions, towing, taxi, robbing trucks, return lost wallets, ect. There was no pop up to indicate anything. I always do side missions before main missions, this is not my first time through the the game either. following what screen shots i've seen vs what i have, there is no texture, model placement, or event differences out side of stunt plane trials.

Ok hellcattx, how did u get $500,000 with m and f before unlocking T? Just curious?

 

And razgriz. Yeah I carried on down to there after the pier. I've also been to the 2 docks near the alamo sea, the one in lago zancudo, even the one in chumash! I've tried most dock like areas that are in the general area of the directions.

 

The directions could be in code? And a very specific time frame might be needed. Or we are just pissing in the wind! :)

 

Regarding stocks. I don't want to use them as iirc correctly the game counts money earned very specifically and profits from stocks don't count. Could be wrong but I was going for an earning money approach.

stocks is one way of going, jacking a taxi and using r3 missions is another, same with tow trucking. Random event armoured cars and wallet returns. Stocks is ez to do early game, invest in ammunation, buy a bunch of stuff, rampage a bit, buy more, repeat. Same with the destroying post op vs go postal vans and if you wanna try a mix of all, blow up rival FlyUS / AirEmu air craft at the airport. There is alot of options IF you know what your doing....

Thanks for telling me how to play the game. I've only 100% completed it 3 times. Back to my question though. How did YOU get $500,00 with M and F? YOU being the key word.

I just told you. Unlike most people, I DO grind those tedious jobs to make money, and have since GTA III.

Get a taxi and spend some hours in it, or a tow truck. ANY character can make money in cab, before you buy the taxi property.

 

I'm not telling you how to play, I'm telling you how I played.

Hmm. Now that you mentioned it, and reminded me have you ever put any thought into why the first X above Lago Zancudo is considerably larger then the other 5, and could be nothing but also have a little but of a finish on the bottom left.

 

Also after a little closer looking it seems the X's start at the same reference point which is either the space before the last word in the line or the character just before the space. Gonna go see if my black light still works

 

Regarding stocks. I don't want to use them as iirc correctly the game counts money earned very specifically and profits from stocks don't count. Could be wrong but I was going for an earning money approach.

 

Hmm, well if it's true might as well keep using stocks to help cover all bases

OMG!!! I have a great idea for someone who can quickly do this loading a save file.

 

Does anyone remember how much apocolapse funds Michael earns after stealing it from the Epsilons?

Perhaps we can call Trev while escaping them, or maybe after we escape the Epsilons? then drive them to the docks...

 

Has anyone done this? Can anyone quickly try with a save file?

This to me is a bit of a stretch. First because the instructions say $500,000 not 2,100,000. So your going a bit overkill with the cash. Granted it doesn't say exactly but it's still overkill

 

Secondly what clues do you have that epsilon is even connected to this?

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

Sound logic. I didn't know that the blueprint map was supposed to be Trevor's. I don't even have the CE so no real life map for me lol. Worth going online tough. With all these mysteries I am really starting to get fed up. Rockstar are either really good and providing hard to solve clues or more likely cunning, publicity stunting bastards. Think I'll just wait until the new MP update and SP DLC release before I actually care about seeking the truth again.

Well the game refers to it as the Sonar Collections Dock. So that makes your point moot.

This theory comes from the fact that on the back of the map it says

 

T.P.E

TREVOR PHILIPS INDUSTRIES ENTERPRISES

WEAPONS - NARCOTICS - INTIMIDATION - CASUAL WEAR

 

I don't even have the CE so no real life map for me lol.

 

The map also comes with the SE. but from your post I'm gonna guess you have the standard edition

 

Worth going online tough.

 

This to me is a bit tricky to say for certain.

 

Yes in online you seem to have actual physical cash but not in SP, and the map under normal light seems to be meant for online use as well.

 

But under a black light you get additional info that all seem to point at SP use.

How so?

 

The map says "down to the docks" and as you stated yourself the game refers to his location as the Sonar Collections Dock.

 

While my area of interest is around a pier in Paleto Bay next to the most North Western city/town

 

So how is it a moot point? Or do I not understand what a moot point is?

CyborgZombie thanks for bringing Snacks post to the front it gave me an idea that might be a bit of a stretch

 

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

 

This part of the post made me think it over. And then it occurred to me, when do you give instructions to a meet up and state how much cash to bring.

 

The first two things that popped into my head was something illegal usually dealing with drugs. And When someone gets kidnapped.

 

And I clearly remember Trevor kidnapping Martins wife and after the final mission? Trevor's mother asks for a specific type of drug.

 

So I ask has anyone tried to run the route after stealing the wife or in the van filled with drugs?

 

Actually now that I said that out loud I realized how stupid that is because you would be getting the money not spending it

it's sad for single player, but is it correct that the bus(not the airport bus) we can buy cost 500k? (never play online, so...). bring money or bring something you paid cash? already tried?

 

Edit; I checked. including all vehicles offline and online, the bus is the only vehicles to cost 500k(except the new super car but not here at the begining).

 

If it's not that it could be that(current market, so..),

500,000.00 USD =548,460.88 CAD

500,000.00 CAD = 455,864.84 USD
