Highlighted compass?
The voices in my head tell me that we saved the world. However, they also told me that George Clooney's face is on the dollar bill, so... meh. The voices are more fun, anyway.

Do you not have a highlighted compass on your Locator page?

Yes. Is it in a different direction than the others?

Yes it is. It's the only one pointing anywhere near West for me. All the others are either NE or North directly. I see miles too. That must be new, I know I'm not that unobservant.

Pixie said to REVERSE the direction, causing the highlighted direction to be the same as the others.

Just check a few posts back. It's a new update. I think it happened this morning.

My highlighted compass is also the furthest distance. Looks the same for Sicon.

First, I'm actually very angry. I spent a ton of time on this, and now they're changing the rules. :evil:

Now, I still don't think we should plot them tail-to-tail, because the puzzle would be nigh unsolvable without the distances. I still think there was a possibility to solve it with the data we had.

I'll try to shorten the vectors on my map. Just give me some time to finish my stuff.

I think 67 miles southwest from Adell is the shortest one so far.

I think that would be close to Pottstown, PA, from where I live.

#MadMadMad thought from me. But I'm pissed off right now at this senseless map, so...

:idea: What if the compasses are actually formulae?

Let me illustrate: Assume Lat/Long values are 10/25 and my compasses are N N N S S S N.
IF the compasses are operation codes for a formula, say, N means Double the Coordinates and S means Halve them.
I would double the values 3 times, then halve them 3 times and lastly double them again end result being the target coordinates
20/50.

He have a set of starting coordinates and bearing parameters to feed the function. We can also safely assume there's only 1 end point, therefore, If we can define the function that takes all that input and returns a single consistent point, he have our target.

It's math intensive as hell. And won't work if my theory is wrong. I have no idea what to make of the highlighted compass. And overall what I'm saying is to reverse-engineer the fucking source code without a clue as to how it works...


On the mapping front: reverse the bearing of the highlighted compass and plot it, and it alone. That's all I can think of after messing with the google map.
