    Hey guys!

    I apologize for the huge delay, but finally the cookie briefcase event is back!
    The new pickup can be found at the old parkour located at the beach of East Los Santos, and contains 5000 score just for you!

    Your goal is to find the briefcase, post a screenshot about it's literal location and gain the prize.

    Happy hunting! :cool:

    NOTE: Do not reply to this topic at all unless you are posting the picture to win ! If you have a question, send me a private message.
    ~HeadHunter

    Update: It appears I totally confused the directions, I meant to say East instead of West. Thank you Jim & Lucas for correcting me.
    Update 2: Everyone is allowed to play, literally.

    Briefcase has been found by me, ladies and gentlemen! If you want to have a look for yourself, head over to what we know as /ep, and look over to the submarine right at the shore. It was inside it :D

    Congratulations, Lucas! Your efforts were really paid off, however that doesn't mean you guys' will not. Best of luck next 'this' time. :)

    I've succesfulyl placed the pickup for the second round. It can be found at Los Santon Beach, a.k.a /LSB. This time the cookie briefcase honors it's own name and contains cookies, however much more than it systematically would allow. The amount is 5000 (!) cookies, which anyone of you can obtain right away! Happy hunting! :)

    Congratulations, Ben!

    However, I believe there is an explanation needed here to tell you how did he end up finding it so fast.
    So, I actually placed it underwater, where he collected it from but it was really close to the floor to make it harder to reach. The problem was that it could actually be seen from above, even if it could only be collected from underwater. This was something I did not consider. I decided to give the cookies to Ben to be fair, I take full responsibility.

    Next round which hopefully will last longer and allow most of you guys to participate, is coming soon. Stay tuned!

    UPDATE: The new location is Las Venturas Airport, and the prize is 2500 cookies now due to a slight decrease in difficulty.

    UPDATE #2: The briefcase has been reinstalled due to a server restart.

    UPDATE #3: The first hint is that it is 'INSIDE' something. Seeing how you haven't found it yet, I double the prize which results in 5000 cookies. Good luck!

    I did not think it would last this long, but it kind of makes me happy. Here is a new hint for you guys:
    • The size of the area of the location, Las Venturas Airport, was never defined specifically. Sure, we all have a definition of where and how big it is, but where does it end? Is the place that is restricted and has only one standard entrance all there is to the airport?

    To simplify further, it may not necessarily be inside the airport. :p

    P. S: A notification in case something happens to the server (crash/restart) would be appreciated.

    Congratulations, Jim!

    Here comes the next round, which may be one of the latest rounds before Christmas, depending on how quickly you succeed in winning each round. This time, the briefcase has been placed at the almighty eS Skydive! A linear map that is controversially full of twists, huge objects and tons of locations possible for the cookies to be put at. Furthermore, I am giving you sort of a freedom of choice this time, meaning you can choose the type of prize upon victory. These will be either cookies or score, 20000 (!) of each respectively.

    I am giving you two hints before I am releasing you to one of the most difficult hunts eS has even seen!
    • The cookie briefcase can only be seen and picked up in the same world everyone else usually is in, keep that in mind.
    • The pickup can be found at one of the levels where you can see industrial objects.
    Best of luck!

    Okay guys, here comes the second hint (I will be adding hints daily until you find the briefcase):

    • The term 'industrial' I was referring to, it's an object that is used to contain almost anything. Look at huge ships that transfer such for example.

    I see that another day has passed since I have given you the last hint, therefore here is a new, more direct one:

    • It's below around the level of rocks and waterfalls, not far in distance. It won't be seen from the outside, you need to try everything that comes in mind to find it.

    Now that you eased off a bit, it's time for the next challenge!

    This one will be easier than the previous one in terms of difficulty. My chosen location is 'The Sherman Dam (/DAM)' where the storing of the water is so profound and efficient that it no longer is contained in it's natural consistence.
    To celebrate Christmas, the workers at the dam successfully froze the large part of the surface of the water and created ice and snow. It's solid enough for skiing, ice-skating, sledge or even ice hockey, but be careful of it's slipperiness: I don't wish to see a broken limb, rib or any bone during Christmas. In addition, one of you lucky winners will be able to find a well hidden bag the workers placed, that contains a huge prize: 5000 cookies that worth gold here.

    Best of luck!

    For some reason the briefcase has been lost in time, therefore I had to place it where I originally did.
    I am also providing you with some hints, like the following:
    • It's Christmas time! Look up in the sky, it's snowing! Isn't that beautiful?

    Another day is about to pass, therefore it's time for the next hint to be revealed!
    • Look for something that resembles a 'Wicker basket', especially how the threads connect to each other.

    It's been quite a while since this round started, and it seems your research has been to no avail up until now. Let me share with you the final hint and the fact that the prize has been increased to 10000 cookies or score (choice again):
    • This is what I actually meant by how the threads connect to each other in a wicker basket, you need to look for something like this in the area.

    Congratulations, Truxy! You got quite close to the milestone of 100.000 score! Wishing you good luck actually reaching it.

    This round will be a little bit different, there will be no teleport that actually warps you to a nearby location as far as I know, however the location exists.
    See, a new farm has been discovered by our explorers where there were traces found of ancient agriculture, dating back to BC 2000 or earlier. Our scientists were unable to identify the plants they have used to grow, their assumptions is that they could have been strong physchedelics or hallucinogen plants used for spiritual purposes. The seeds are still capable of growing so there is hope. Given our scientists' innovativeness, they have named it 'The Farm'.
    Additionally, they have found something that could be a complex safe, which needs a very specific key with an unseen design. Given the skeletons found in the ground nearby, the key must be in close range.

    The first person who finds the key will unlock the safe's hidden mysteries and unravel the unbeknown (5000 cookies, 5000 score or $35.000.000 dollars). Indeed, history is a tricky, complex thing.

    Best of luck, and last but most importantly, Merry Christmas to you all! I wish you a good time with your friends, family (you could join usif you can't spend the Christmas otherwise, as said before we are a warm, open-armed family. Don't worry about being here, we can make sure to make your Christmas as joyful as possible).

    Everything connected to me this time after I read this: "Additionally, they have found something that could be a complex safe, which needs a very specific key with an unseen design. Given the skeletons found in the ground nearby, the key must be in close range."

    After that, I just started going inside places with the speeder until I came across this rock (Never thought it'd be there, but I had nothing to lose so I went in xd) and found the briefcase! I would like the 5000 cookies+score, please.

    Also, quote from my IRC from when I unveiled the logic behind Head's observation on the briefcase.

    It's been a while, isn't it? First of all, congratulations to Lucas for finding the briefcase in such a short amount of time. You are thinking outside the box and getting better at reading between the lines.

    It's officially 2018 for everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR once again! May all of you come closer to your goals this year and have uncountable moments of joy and happiness.

    We are back at it, it's time for the next round. Even though the location has not changed from the mystical 'The Farm'. The prize is 10000 cookies or score. I was in the middle of writing a sidestory for this as well, but decided to postpone it for a hint, hopefully making the circumstances equal from the get-go.

    Best of luck!

    One does not simply hide this briefcase the same way you did with the previous one, lol. I really didn't wanna be a party pooper by finding the briefcase quickly once more, but I guess it is what it is. I'm truly sorry for ruining the opportunity of you writing the sidestory, @HeadHunter, but I was really not counting on finding this briefcase using the same method as with the previous one :c

    [​IMG]

    Nevertheless, I'd like to go for the score prize;

    You are not a party pooper Lucas, but if you were not counting on finding the briefcase using the same method as before, why did you go for it? :p Nevertheless, congratulations! I admit it was too presumptous and underestimating of me to go for the same method twice. I hope this one brings different results.

    It's been a week+ once again, and I think I finally found a location which has not been used before, and is supposed to give you a challenge. The next briefcase is located somewhere at 'Ocean Docks' neighbourhood of the Los Santos Airport (a.k.a /LSA). The prize is 5000 cookies or score, happy finding!

    It's been 2 days therefore I believe it's time to share a hint with you guys.

    The location is the United Arab Emirates, Dubai, Burj Al Arab hotel. A police report has been filed into a middle-aged man stealing a suitcase from a well-known businessman who has been residing in the hotel concerning business matters. According to his report, the suitcase had been a container for 100 kg worth of cookies he purchased in a nearby bakery to send back to her family as a souvenir from the metropolis. Furthermore, the location was the hall where there is a fountain to which a waterfall leads. The suitcase has been found empty in that very fountain by another resident of the hotel, who reported the case to the police. According to the victim of the theft who is the businessman, the thief has been carrying a briefcase with him in which he possibly hid the cookies. According to the Hotel's blueprint, there is a trap door below the fountain which leads to a vast and complex, but abandoned maze where the thief possibly hid the cookies to avoid anyone finding it until he comes back to take them. Police Officers are currently investigating, however given the case's lack of weight the hotel remains open.

    Happy hunting!
