It's Star Tropics all over again. Don't lose that map or the game will probably be unwinnable.

Well I got there, I think... not sure really what I'm looking for.. but here is what I've found:
There was a $250,000 property to buy which gives you a sub at the end of the dock, looks like some missions as well, having a go at that now.

Just tried myself. Amazing (the notes are translated in the box language, btw).

There are stains too. I hope it's just some
fake
blood.

this is very cool.
I wish i found out myself but then again there's no way i could :p

But seriously, how did people find out ? people usually shine UV lights on their games' manuals ?

Who decides to just say "Oh, I haven't checked the map under a UV light yet. Best get on it?"

But yeah, I love the little details Rockstar put into their stuff.

Apparently some places were selling the special edition with a UV light disguised as a pen, someone put 2&2 together

Under the bed...
Didn't the Collector's Edition of Halo Reach have a hidden message of some kind taht was revealed with a UV light as well? Maybe people have just started doing the UV light thing because other games have done it in the past. Just a thought.

This sounds like something that was intentionally leaked by Rockstar because who would think to use UV light on the map?

I use to smoke and play games when I was younger. The girl I was with always would turn on the black light everytime she was there. She said normal lighting gave her a headache and I didnt care one way or another when she was there. Wouldnt be surprised if others played games like this and found the hidden clues.
