Disclaimer that I should’ve added but was too stupid to think of: This is somewhat satire, please don’t take the entire thing seriously
Attention all Unturned gamers!
…hah no, I’m not going to start with that. I am sure you’ve been accustomed to me making detailed suggestions or simplistic memes, but today, I bring forth something entirely different. Something so groundbreaking that it very well may change how we think of Nelson forever. I’m talking about a conspiracy theory - and not just a satirical one like Pork’s, but one that may actually have been an intentional correlation created by Nelson himself. This is so important that I’m actually going to attempt verifying the validity of this with Nelson if possible.
So, let’s get to it. It was a normal day, and I was chatting with some friends in Pineridge about various manner of memery, when I stumbled across something peculiar. I was in the midst of working on the Unturned Globe Project, a recreational project that displayed the geographical location of major community members and modder friends worldwide.
Do you know how in Washington in-game, Scorpion-7 is north of Everett? Well, I was setting markers in Washington when I remembered a road trip I had taken down there earlier in the year, and more importantly, noticed that right beside IRL Everett sat a very remarkable facility:
Yes, I’m referring to the massive Boeing facility here, that is world-famous for having the largest enclosed structure by volume of any building on Earth. Upon closer inspection, I discovered there was also a “Flying Heritage and Combat Armor” museum nearby. I thought nothing of it at first, and continued on with my seemingly irrelevant work.
Now, it was upon sharing this with Pineridge that one of the users, @Armaros, made a quick joke about it being a Scorpion-7 facility. Wait a second though, we may have been on to something! Our familiarity with American military technology allowed us to do some additional background research about the facility and about Boeing, and it was at that moment that I truly had a breakthrough moment:
Turns out, Boeing was actually one of several companies in the US developing railgun prototypes for the US military! Railguns, eh? Sounds a bit too uncanny when compared with the technology of our in-game Washington brethren, and of course, I’m referring to the S7-produced man-portable railgun itself.
This is it. Nelson himself surely knows about this and has used it as a god-tier bamboozle for anyone willing to dig deep enough into researching the reality of Unturned’s maps. Well, of course, it all goes deeper still.
Utilizing my knowledge of random Canadian trivia, I recalled that a town in Alberta (Nelson’s home province, of course), St. Paul, is home to the world’s first officially designated UFO landing pad that was opened in 1967. If you may recall Washington lore, a note addressed to Olympia denoted the Polysol Federation, the alien civilization of vanilla lore, to have been discovered in 7/8/1947, exactly 20 years prior. (Fun fact - it was also the same date of the Roswell UFO crash IRL.)
Does this mean that the Canadian government is in on the Polysol? Did they arrange some sort of diplomatic contact with the alien race? Was it all just wishful thinking, advance planning? Or more significantly, is Nelson himself in contact with the Polysol Federation? This really raises more questions than answers, but there are easter eggs in the game that are known (and officially confirmed!) to be unsolved, such as the washed-up capsule in PEI.
What do you think? Any opinions, or additional research/information to add of your own? Did I miss something?
Have I gone manic in my time away from the SDG Forums? Let me know!
UPDATE: Armaros was quick to recall a little detail I missed
