The $500,000 to bring to the docks

Recommended Posts

Razgriz67

Anyone with the blueprint map check for me? How many x's are marked in the water as submersible?

10

 

Though supposedly from what I read they just lead you to I think it was nuclear waste

Cheers dude. Just checking it wasn't 6! This message is starting to drive me crazy! Haha. I stood on your jetski dock for 7 days game time. I stood at the sonar dock for 7 days game time. Now I've started a new game. I've just done the first mission. And I'm earning $500,000. Then I'm going to the docks. If nothing I'm going to go to the docks at every point in game. After every mission, every hobbie, every stranger and freaks, every possible change in game state. After that I'm giving up! :D

 

I literally don't care what this $500,000 buys me. It could get me mugged for all I care as long as there's an answer!

Hey jp, do you remember what exactly Frank Mathers was doing when he died? as in was he looking for something or testing out an experimental sub? Can't quite remember.

 

 

On a side note. To you lurkers out there please do post any ideas you think have some credibility, even if I completely destroy it with counter facts, it could lead to someone else going off of that to make a potentially better idea

I think he was just exploring the sea. His wife says he used to host a tv show about space before becoming obsessed with the sea. (I'm paraphrasing, it's something like that! :) ) and obviously the airlock was tampered with so he drowned. Not sure much else is mentioned. It's been a while though since I met Abigail Mathers.

Ok just saw a cut scene and he was out there to help protect the San Andreas white shark (or something related to the shark) so there goes my "invest in a sub" idea

 

Though it does being up the possibility (even though chances are ridiculously small) of the "give us money to protect the shark" idea

Hmmmmm, "Invest in a Sub"? What if you go there at like 03:00 with 100% and SE/CE and invest in something on the stock market? I can check this with my 100% and CE but later. Gotta go to sleep on my side of the world :p.

Just one thought though. It says cash. So investing, buying things on the phone wouldn't be cash. And just in case any one missed it. It says bring cash to the epsilon mansion and Michael just pulls it out of his pocket. Before anyone starts going on about cash only online etc. :D

Just as an advanced warning I'm came off of work with 2 hours of overtime at 1 am tonight so my brain my not be fully functional for a couple of days

 

 

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).

 

This sparked a fewcrackpot ideas, that can possibly be disproved in an hour or so.

 

1) I have noticed a Dashound bus (not Tirks city bus) park at the gas station in Lagu Zancudo. Only have stayed long enough for bus driver to come out go next to store talk to someone, or come over to whoop my a** for burning out. Or get stuck on the gas pump, guess he tried to go right but his brain couldn't acknowledge the obstacle in the way (or maybe he was filling up) so follow to see where it goes

 

Either in SP or in MP pick up peds/players in designated areas and I broke up the directions in semi arbitrary sections (and going based off of the assumption I have the right location) doesn't work so well at the sonar docks

 

1 person in vehicle or passenger

Lago Zancudo

 

2 people in vehicle or passengers

Great Ocean Highway North

through North Chumash

 

3 people in vehicle or passengers

0.5 miles past Raton Canyon

 

4 people in vehicle or passengers

<- when guard rail ends

 

5 people in vehicle or passengers

follow the dirt road

 

 

down to the Docks

Bring 500,000 $ CASH

 

Or

 

1 person in vehicle or passenger

Lago Zancudo

 

2 people in vehicle or passengers

Great Ocean Highway North

 

3 people in vehicle or passengers

through North Chumash

 

4 people in vehicle or passengers

0.5 miles past Raton Canyon

 

5 people in vehicle or passengers

<- when guard rail ends

 

 

follow the dirt road

down to the Docks

Bring 500,000 $ CASH

 

 

 

And potential outcome is paying someone to take those people out of the state

 

 

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

 

Just out of curiosity why Canadian?

 

It says bring cash to the epsilon mansion and Michael just pulls it out of his pocket.

 

Really? I don't remember that part, then again I don't remember much now a days

 

Just one thought though. It says cash. So investing, buying things on the phone wouldn't be cash.

 

And the rest of your post stole the fuel from cakelover and gave it to me. My investment idea might still work if they ask for cash only. :p but thats just a crackpot idea with no real proof

For this to work can you guys give me a specific dock that i have to try out? Im not doing this randomly because i dont want false results so i need a location.

Depends who u want to believe cakelover! :D haha but if the directions are in some sort of code it could be any dock. There's 2 in the alamo sea, the sonar docks, one opposite side of the map by san chianski mountain range, then you have the jetski dock out in paleto bay and vespucci beach. Plus the marina u can buy. And merry weather docks. Am I missing any?

Cant find anything related to a sub or docks on the stock market. But i could go to the Merryweather place and invest in them there.

I invested exactly 500.001$ in the Department of Water and Power at the Sonar Docks with 100% and nothing (same with merryweather). Going to try out the one in Paleto Bay now and edit this post.

 

Edit: Still nothing...

Now that's the sort of thinking we have been lacking. Out side the box. Love it Tirk. I'm beginning to believe that the directions will lead us to a place not highlighted in the blueprint map though. And both the sonar docks and weed Farm are highlighted

Since this seems to be picking up speed a little. I went ahead and marked my dock of interest and JPs dock of interest on this map

 

And please note that there are 4 different looks to the map which include satellite and UV.

 

P.S. supposedly the satellite view is slightly different then in-game so be careful not to misinterpret these changes

 

I take no credit for finding or creating this map. All credit goes to who ever Glokon is

Nice one razgriz, pain in the arse I know but would it be hard to include all docks?

 

It would be nice to get a picture of every possible dock location to see if we can fit the directions in to arrive at another dock. If that makes sense. God I'm tired. Can't wait to finish work.

It's possible to add more, just click the "<" on the right side of your browser, but it takes a few tries to get the marker in the right spot (don't know if you can delete a single marker but know you can clear the map minus the black focus point marker). If you don't beat me to it (and my parents dont beat me to that TV) I'll be able to do it in around 2-3 hours about to go to class

 

EDIT:

P.S. our two docks of interest are the only docks I recall seeing in my multiple passes in a plane along that beach line.

 

Only things to note are the missing docks that I also marked.

 

But forgot to mark that on the east end of the beach when it turns into cliffs, IIRC there are wood stairs that lead to wooden platforms I think, potential dried up pier?

I was thinking about what if its a pier that used to exist. So we would have to look for sunken piers too. :) ill have a look at the map later, see what I can do. I'm using my phone though so it might be annoying! Broke my laptop! :(

 

Dock sorry. It's a dock not a pier! Hahaha

Alright so, I went up and down the beach again and aside from a few AI being in a somewhat hard to get in/out spot nothing much out of the ordinary. you have your few tent/campfires (though not much due to the rain)

 

I did forget that the peninsula? west of the Chiliad Trolly does seem to be a makeshift dock almost always find a few jet skis and a boat or two there (though I don't this is our spot due to how secluded it is)

 

http://rsg.ms/ScBNY4

 

Also in Paletos Cove

http://rsg.ms/ScBUCP

 

Is what might be a dried up dock, though again I doubt this is the place due to how far east it is

http://rsg.ms/ScC1hT

 

Those two are the only semi interesting things I remembered/found this shore run. Also still havn't found any indicator that the missing dock was ever there.

 

 

Also JP since you seem to have a better eye then me (didn't notice the Raton Canyon sign even though I knew there was one in the area) I remember someone mentioning that why have the arrow left instead of just saying left. Have you tried looking (past the 2nd bridge) for any arrows pointing left? or anywhere actually

I'm probably not gonna get time anyway today plus I've only earned about $10,000. :) it's gonna take me a long time. What's your idea?

 

With regards to arrows etc. Ill keep an eye out next time in going down the great ocean highway.

I was thinking after I brought out the map that at the very least you and I can agree the dock is past the 2nd bridge but before Up-N-Atom. Then I thought well what if that's wrong and further from the truth.

 

 

Which reminded me of you stating we are going over Raton Canyon and not through it. So I wonna take that dirt road next to your sign and go from there. I have a hunch I know where I'll end up. I recall someone bringing this up (don't have time to search right now) but don't recall a follow up to that

 

Also part of my basis for doing this run also comes from what you said JP. Why all of a sudden change up tactics from area to landmarks, while (technically) you go over and not through the last area that is given . So part of me thinks we may actually have to take the dirt road in order to go through and past Raton Canyon

So, I did the run and ended up where I thought I would, but due to a few things I had to ignore, and the fact I can't think of any reason (not even a BS one) to why there. I'm gonna go ahead and debunk my own theory

 

 

Also Tirk if your still reading this topic, I don't wonna get it too far behind. But the main reason I asked why Canadian is because, and I could be wrong (been a while since I played the story), but IIRC Trevor isn't a very big fan of Canada

I'm getting really bored of doing taxi missions! After the first mission you can only get money doing taxi missions or robbing stores which is Max $500 a pop. I've invested like $10,000 waiting for that to go up. (Invested in whiz at $0.56 a share! :) ) but I can only use Bawsaq as LCN won't change until I do a story mission which I'm not gonna do until I got $500,000 and checked every dock/pier.

 

On a random side note. What other "docks" do we have in game. The life invader phone is called the dock. The spacedocker of course. Anything else?

Idea, go to the supposed place and buy 500,000 stock(+/-63$ on my part, so 31 500 000) on the market.
Then it depends. if:

dock = Merryweather

or
doc = pharmaceutical company

Interesting idea. But I do kinda agree with that JP said.

 

Odds are any stock purchases won't do a thing since your doing it via phone it's through your bank not your wallet.

 

However I don't have a thing to test out. So I'll test it tonight

OK I found 2 more docks tonight while I was messing around bored of doing taxi jobs. I haven't checked anything yet as about to go to bed but thought I would share anyway! They are in the dam in vinewood hills. Real long shot given the directions but still 2 more docks in a place that doesn't really need one dock to be honest.
