Purple Dinosaur

Recommended Posts

Cutter De Blanc

Anybody have any idea why the giant purple dinosaur is marked on the physical paper map that comes with the game? There are no other landmarks indicated on the map.

 

I went to the dinosaur. It's pretty creepy and the eyes glow at night, but there doesn't seem to be anything else special there?

 

(If you're wondering, the dino is just south of Davis Quartz.)

The Hippy tanks outside the Lost camp are marked on the physical map also, however they are not labeled , but they appear in the same shade of gray as the mansions in Vinewood Hills for example so nothing too unusual about that.

 

I suppose the Dino Diner is considered as a landmark of the map, but funny how none of the other things in the game like the Giant Cigarette or glass of beer or Cluckin Bell Chicken or Rocket or anything else similiar gets the same treatment as the Dinosaur.

 

People say the Dinos footprints appear out front of the diner door, ill admit the indent in the ground somewhat resembles the Dinos foot shape but it could just be any old mark in the ground to be honest...

there's also a connection you could make with the Hangar plane of franlin the name is "dinosoar" or something like that. And there is two trailers fine textured.

 

I haven't tried to take a truck. I do so many things at once ... Purpose it might be a physical representation of a fictional thing (dinosaur in 2013).

3 finger dino footprints are clearly seen in front of the diner. Some 6 or 8 of them (can't access the game atm to post a picture but it's there).

Sure they could be man made as somekind of marketing for the diner's customers, but it's no texture bug for sure.

I've tryied to find more of them aways from the diner, to no avail.

I think this is what I was talking about, the three big toe marks making one big footprint, it seems to match the foot of the Dino, as for any more footprints I must go back and check again there are more of these around you say?

Yes, they are in pairs, like something "walked while the cement was fresh".

IIRC it's some 3 or 4 pairs right in front of the entrance hinting for some N to S movement.

 

Edit - Since the thread is about something distinct found at the game map, I'll post this one here.

It's something that it's on the game papper map (In mine at least) but I can't seem to find anything at the actual location.

Anyone knows what it might be (except maybe another R* fail)?

That Dinosaur gets up to some devilish business in the witching hours I think!

I see this brown rectangle on my map also, it seems to be a boardwalk for boats or whatever, there is no boardwalk up here just sand? I will investigate shortly!

One might wonder why only the LEFT EYE lights up at night, and why it's a Triangle/Pyramid?.

Is there anything else in the game that is PURPLE with only the LEFT EYE that is highlighted? i can think of one.

 

EDIT: Left Eye that works and PURPLE...

EDIT2: But this game works in 3's. 3 is a very important number in the Universe.

It's on the left to everyone but the dinosaur.

 

No, YOUR left!

 

So the dino is also marked as a safehouse on the blueprint map...

oh, lol. the f was i thinking?

 

Must have been a long day, or not long enough, i don't know.

 

Maybe i will do L + R on my shoes but, i'd probably mess it up.

 

EDIT: i see what happened, i have a folder of GTAV pics that are reversed/mirrored, i must have been looking at those when typing the description.

 

the pics i linked to are the same pictures but, from the original orientations.

 

Either that or ALIENS...

I have a Special Edition of GTA blueprint map, it contains only red markings for GTA Online it seems, including a O for fast cash (robbing liqour stores gas stations etc) LS Customs and safehouses marked with a triangle, there are tons of safehouses listed on this map i have, there are only about 12 available in online, and there must be about 30 of these triangles indicating safehouses all over the map, one of which im sure is the dinosaur i need to double check this off my regular map

 

Does anyone else have this Special Edition GTA Online only info blueprint map?

it should also be noted I can see the key for "submersible" and "gruppe 6" which are singlepalyer objectives i think are just barely visible on this map, almost like they were erased pencil markings with an eraser. I have looked at this map up and down I cant see any more markings like this anywhere

6 kind of looks like the lowercase PHI symbol, the Golden Ratio.

 

I always wondered if that was some of the meaning behind the 6, besides being "Group Sex"?

Back on to the purple Dino...

 

In my theory the color purple represents US, The Player/Observer.

 

The Dino and Skull would basically represent us, and the right eye would represent our intuition. our 3rd eye.

 

We are now seeing with the right eye(double meaning).

 

Also in my theory the characters, or some of them are aware of our presence and observation going on but, Purple is the hardest color to see with the human eye, which is why they can't see us, unless they truly look with their real eyes(intuition)

 

Hard to explain without writing a book for you guys but, i hope the outline i have laid makes some sense, even if just minor.

 

EDIT: You will also notice, now that i bring it up and it was in your faces the whole time, that the Purple Skull(Us) is observing the stage from behind the "Talent" area, or the orientation they would be facing.

 

We know the 3 colors of light are the 3 characters colors, so the Purple Skull is behind them, observing, through it's "Right Eye".

 

EDIT: So far i have not been able to come up with a "Scene" or "Scenario" for the Purple Dino, any ideas of what it could be symbolizing? all ideas are welcomed.

 

What could the Hotdog represent, and why is it biting it(beside the obvious that it's hungry, lol)

 

Is there any way to explain it?

Since GTA III? I just dont think its possible, come on if you made a sex pun or joke in a game and someone found something to do with the golden ratio hidden within it wouldnt that just make you laugh?

Gruppe in danish means group. 6 in danish is spelled and pronounced "seks" (about 100-200 years ago we spelled it "sex"). Every dane who played gta love R* for including a danish language joke. (you don't see many of those).

 

I remember the first couple of months of GTAV release. a guy found a Gruppe6 alarm glitched in a container in FZ base and was convinced it was a hint at GTA6.. :) I really don't think there's more to G6 than an oppertunity to steal some cash and ofcourse work as security guys. (probably supposed to "mock" or refer to companys companys like G4S)

 

On the note of purple things: theres a purple teddy in the stripclub, can't remember if there's something to his left eye, but if anyone's in the game, feel free to check it.. It reminded me of Wonkers from Dreamfall :)

"The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23"But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!…

"the Brain is divided in two halves with the left brain controlling the right side and the right brain controlling the left side. one side is the brain that contains the intellect [ego] and the other contains creativeness [the creator] it is that simple.
have you ever known something was going to happen? like something falling off a shelf or a fight breaking out in a bar [usually for no real reason] have you ever considered that your knowing created that reality?
this is rarely at the level of intellect, it is in the state of "knowing" that the whole of the multiverse rearranges reality to fit the manifestation of your creative mind. Many of the so-called Guru's have told you that you create your own reality, and the covering of the eye, leaves the eye of the creator open. whether it is left or right it doesn't matter as it depends on whether or not you are right or left handed"

People say the Dinos footprints appear out front of the diner door, ill admit the indent in the ground somewhat resembles the Dinos foot shape but it could just be any old mark in the ground to be honest...

 

They dont 'appear', they are always there and obviously dino tracks. Its not suggesting the dino comes to life, its what a lot of real businesses and zoos do.

Not to mention that the footprints start from the wrong direction. More like it went to stand on that place. But yeah it's probably for marketing. People are probably overthinking things again. Although it's fun to try and find something regardless.

I think it's supposed to be a nod to these:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabazon_Dinosaurs

 

which also show up in Pee Wee's Big Adventure, one of the best films ever made.

 

From the wiki: "[The creator's] original vision for Dinny was for the dinosaur's eyes to glow and mouth to spit fire at night, predicting, 'It'll scare the dickens out of a lot of people driving up over the pass.' These two features, however, were not added."

The purple dinosaur is in reference to Claude Bell's Dinosaurs, which is behind the Wheel Inn restaurant that Mr. Bell used to own. I'm sure it exists in the game because Rockstar likes to use lots of landmarks from real life.

I know why it's there, why is it marked on the physical map that came with the game though? It's practically the only landmark marked on the map.
