The RedHill Institute thread

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I mean someone had to do it right ? ...

 

So yesterday , some players noticed these new signs around san paro (this one is in finnancial close to double B)  taking the place of Growl signs , there are a few more in other districts but i don't know the location of them .

If you find some more ads  with this on them , hit me up with coordinates or a screenshot and i will add it to ths thread.

Finnancial Billboards :

 



More of these billboards : the first one is close to City hall and the second one is on the outside of Javez's building . (Screenshots provided by @Kevkof)

Waterfront Billboards :

 

 


With the help of friends we were able to predict where the billboards would appear in game after this update , so there we go , as we expected this update added the redhill billboards to waterfront :

 

Waterfront : Granada (though the billboard is technically in yard stretch slums)

unknown.png

Waterfront : Sandford  & Del mar (billboard is technically in sandford keep)

unknown.png

Waterfront : Neritina Road (billboard is technically in Millenium Plaza)

Also that ad shows a link going towards a website called http://www.redhillinstitute.com Here's what it looks like:

RedHill Website 03/01/2019

RedHill Website 03/06/2019

 

 


Open the image to see all details as it's a very high resolution image.

The website seems to be showcasting a company called RedHill, taking care of san paro in many different ways .

 

Some people have noted that the initials of RedHill Insitute of Technology could be "RIOT" but it has been discussed a but more and this could totally be a wrong assumption as it could also be RHIT or RHIOT depending on how people read it .

 

From here, i will post everything that was found with dates (i will be using spoilers to avoid clutter) :

 

03/07/2019

 

 


@Nanometic with the help of @SKay found this hidden link on the page :

ijaDsCA.jpg

 

Which redirects to https://www.redhillinstitute.com/c0d3 The page itself shows a fake 404 error message however if you select the whole page by doing ctrl + a you get a code :


unknown.png

 

Entering this 32584 code in your redeem code page will show you the following :

ARG1.PNG

 

"You have completed Part 1. The first part of the code is 6ac20d50-____-4f0f-____-____________"

 

Also in the page's Javascripts those coordinates were found "-33.91727341958453, 151.23348314155578" which are probably for a future embeed of google maps in the website, those coordinates points to an australian university :

At This point , everone pretty much hit a roadblock, seems like we need to wait a bit more to see what's going to appear next.
 

 

03/13/2019

 

 


Today both finnancial and waterfront billboards changed their appearence , they now include the code at their bottom right, with an overall new layout. (Screenshot provided by @Ruoskat)

03/14/2019

 

 


The redhill website got updated again :

(Open the image to see all details as it's a very high resolution image.)

t0YklLl.jpg

 

Also a new login button was added on top the page which redirects here :

UXnT73b.png

 

the only credentials that were found yet are MattScott as an username and any password which redirects to this page https://www.redhillinstitute.com/big-smile (Most likely just an easter egg , and not linked with the ARG)

 
 

 

 

03/16/2019

 



The player @MartinPL after some found a valid username for the website "cpritcher" using data from an article recently added to the redhill website

 

On 3/16/2019 at 2:44 AM, MartinPL said:

Pardon the multiposting.

I only just noticed something on the login subpage.

 

nerrJfI.png

 

pk2KQny.png

 

A random jumble of letters outright told me that either the username or the password is wrong.

Inputting 'cpritcher' told me that only the password (in this case, "32584") is incorrect.

 

I guess we can safely assume that 'cpritcher' is a functioning username. I've been personally using 'admin' since it's the placeholder/catch-all login for most systems (at least according to what I've learned while playing Hacknet :V ) but that doesn't work, and we know that 'MattScott' leads to an easter egg subpage.

Now we need to find a password.



Now we need to find a valid password to be able to acess this account ?

 

03/19/2019

 

 


@Latsha Noticed that the login screen was starting to give players hints about the password for cpritcher's account :

unknown.png

 

After some digging around @Wewhoo found the password which was "gangsigns" written in l33t speech which is "g@ngs1gns", with that , he got acess to cpritcher's inbox and found some intresting stuff :

On 3/19/2019 at 12:34 AM, Wewhoo said:

Since none's posted anything yet, Username is "cpritcher" and password is "g@ngs1gns".
You login to an email client, and one of the emails has an attached picture.

The code thus far is 6ac20d50-_ _ _ _-4f0f-_ _ _ _-3ec51de745d7

unknown.png

 

In one of the mails there was an attached file which was a bluprint for a bomb :

bomb_blueprint.jpg

 

On the bottom left corner of that blueprint we can see "Batch ID" and a series no numbers which happens to correspond with the code we found a while ago which was "6ac20d50-____-4f0f-____-____________",

 

So now we know that the code is : "6ac20d50-____-4f0f-____-3ec51de745d7"

 

Seems like there's a lot more to find in here , as we only have one of the 3 blueprint pages .
 

 
 

 

 

03/20/2019

 

 


The redhill website seems like it was hacked showing a corrupted image of the website :

 

There is posibbly a lot of information shown in the screenshot below but nothing has been found yet.

pwned.png

 

There has been speculations that the bottom part of the page is hiding the number 3947

On 3/21/2019 at 1:52 AM, Pufty said:

Okay, so far...
I don't see anyone mention it here, but the ASCII is simply ASCII art that says Redhill.

The website currently might be just for gathering information of events, rather than solving what could it all mean as many things have been tried today and nothing shows solid results.
Pink text seems to be the intruder interacting with whatever was stopping him from attempting to do something on the webpage. "Blue Lake" so far does not bring up any immediate answers to why that even is mentioned only that it is resembled in the teeth image right below it.


6f4IDeY.jpg


Seems like three times over the page the same 'image' was attempted to be posted. It has a strong resemblance to a video player, so maybe it was an attempt to post a video on the webpage.

The scribbles could be there for nothing, but it has been noted that you can place them inside the black fields of a ripped up frame and it would partially match.


stuff_the_future.JPG


The whole webpage in it's entirety is a JPEG and the access to previously working buttons is removed. 

At some points where ripped black fields appear, they remind of TV-static as they are in boxed shapes. This fits over a white space in the page that seems to be over the crooked text. Could as well take note that the text is not very pleasing to read and may by some cry to not trust what RedHill is.
EYX2I9F.png


At the very bottom of the page the word 'RedHill' is repeated in multiple lines and each line says RedHill 9 times. The underlined words 'RedHill' (left-right, top-bottom) are 39 and 47. Thus 3947, but as anything it could be something or nothing.

"Creach programs and othe besting ill conomy streets,that will's economy streets Redhillnessses or that

We making San Paro that's Economy
We matters, that will's why we are people Redhillnesses to do greating San Paro
Creach programs and others San Paro's powerfu"

That's what has been found today.


That nuber could definetely fit in the code we're cooking for ; 6ac20d50-____-4f0f-____-3ec51de745d7 but the real question is;

is it 6ac20d50-3947-4f0f-____-3ec51de745d7 or 6ac20d50-____-4f0f-3947-3ec51de745d7 and we don't even know if this is a correct number .

 

The search continues ...

 

 

03/23/2019

 

 


Seems like the website changed again , it now shows a countdown to 2019/3/27 01:00:00

 

(Open the image to see all details as it's a very high resolution image.)

There seems to be scattered parts of images all around the website , one being this one :

 

Credits to @CookiePuss  and @Weeb TheEpicGuyV2

There is also a QR code lookalike image in here but im unable to scan it with my phone :

unknown.png

 And at the bottom of the page we can see this , which probably says "Go Away"

21cc51456293f87545bd54a470e45f66.png

 

Your thoughts on it ?

 

My personal guess is this company will be the one manufacturing the car that was annouced to come after the growl , as said in the website , Redhill is also a manufacturing company and their ad replaced a growl one so this could be one of the many possible outcomes .

 

The majority of the community thinks it's a new event about APB Riot (which is the most likely to happen)

 

Seeing the website , Redhill could be at the origin of many many things in san paro...

 

We'ill see how it goes !

THIS IS SO COOL

 

i just came, dunno bout you, but seeing unannounced content like this... shit man. 

 

Also, the buttons don't work. But this might be because im on my phone. 

 

The buttons that take you to the policies and terms pages simply take you to the LO policies page, which makes sense.

 

Guess i'll sign up to the newsteller and wait. Update: still on my phone, seems i can't do shit. 

 

 

It does say that Redhill has acquired three local companies. One of them is IO, why else would the ads disappear (maybe lack of space to put them but that doesnt make this as interesting)

The Opposite Polar Bear Report (TOP-BR (no im not brazilian)):

 

the HTML code shows no easter egg that i could find (im kinda sleepy atm tho)

 

the subscribe newsletter thing actually does something (i tried to subscribe twice and it actually showed an error messenge)

 

i think we should focus on this part:

 

-"RedHill acquires 3 local companies after successful funding round."

 

does that means 3 companies are under RedHill's banner now? somatic... patriot... aaaand.... seiyo? idk, put your bets.

 

i'll post if i recibe any kind of email from this.

I'm guessing they're bad guys.

 

Faceless unknown company spouting PR nonsense and promising a brighter future? Totally bad guys.

No, it's definitely IO (Growl manufacturer) since they're using the ad spots where Growl ads used to be. The other two... we'll have to wait, i guess. Maybe somatic and the gas stations, doubt they managed to buy patriot. I also doubt that they will only focus on vehicles, these guys will definitely manufacture guns also.

I think you're thinking too small at least I hope this is something *bigger* than that

 

I have a hunch. Remember how Haloween epidemic was 3 teams? 'RedHill acquires 3 local companies after successful funding round.' :thonk: This is related to RIOT I betcha, I honestly would be a lil dissapointed if I'm right because it doesn't make much sense.

HoooLY crap, man. I don't know what this is about, but I'm really liking this teaser.

Wonder if this means more lore development, or just a new in-universe manufacturer to integrate new content more seamlessly. Either way, me likey.
