I love your attention to detail
Route 20: Special Cars) - Click here
In addition to Route 3 with Trucks I also started to document any special car that we find in the game. With the latest world enrichment I’ve seen several nice car compositions.
Police and other Security Cars
White Civil Police car
Red Fire Chief car
Orange Facility Security Patrol car
Green Swedish Military Police car
Black Swedish Secret Service (SÄPO) car.
Nice grey Björk with (Snowy) white trim and bumper…
Car with Ski-cargo-box on the roof
Orange Maintenance car with ladder
This blue Fisherman’s Car is parked on a parking strip next to the road. If we walk NE towards the coastline then we find the fishing spot of the car’s owner. However, the fisherman is not there. I called out, but no answer.
This car has Skies, a Gunbox, an Ammo box and some other stuff on the roof. Set for survival in the snowy mountains, I guess.
This black car in Markbacken has long planks, an Ammo box and a Gunbox on the roof
Three wheels on my wagon. But I’m still rolling along. The FNIXees are chasing me. Rockets fly, right on by. But I’m singing a resistance song!
This burning car, is really depicting the drama of people trying to get to safety. Away from the horrors of a brutal hostile occupation. They didn’t make it.
Look at that car(go), its on fire!
Watch out for dead trees
The resistance followed Calle’s idea, but instead of a truck they armored a Björk.
Two Iron Church cars with weights in them. (Fitness site Farmlands)
Scene: Burning Car with two dead Armored Soviets. They most likely used this car to get about, but were attacked by FNIX machines and killed. Wouldn’t it be nice if it had Soviet Markings? I added the star to promote a Soviet car. (-1525, -2489)
Futuristic Flying DeLorean (Easter-egg in a Granhöjden Barn)
You can interact (only once) with it on the back, making it fly away.
There’s not much to go on for now, maybe if we find more lore. Only thing I can think of is that they might be other planned (or discarded) Soviet Landing-zones.
FYI, and pleasure, I documented new pictures and edited some removals in the game, in the routes: 2, 4, 6, 7, 10, 16, 17, 20
The Mountain Eye, and the Dig Hole are no longer places you can find in the game.
Route 21: Red Lights Locations - Click here
In the world of Generation Zero there are locations that are illuminated with mysterious Red Lights. The first thing that someone said about the location with the curtains and red lights that it could be a version of a brothel or gentlemens club. Another suggested a darkroom for developing Photo’s. But I don’t think any of these fits the bill. What exactly the Devs had in mind is yet another topic for speculation.
But then there was the idea of @NJR87 who thinks it’s an easter-egg resembling “the red room” from the 1990s series Twin Peaks. This red room is also known as “the waiting room”.
The locations with the curtains and easy chairs do look like leasure rooms, so this could well be a reference to Twin Peaks. Let’s ask the devs! @Avalanche_Pontus
Mean while I will document any new location found in future updates.
On the end of the street in Tornberget there’s a House and next to it a cabin, both are illuminated red at night. The cabin is locked, but the house is open.

"Red Lights" Locked Cabin at night
East of Villa Broskulla just over the border on a hill in Forest Region we find another Red Lights Cabin and a Caravan. Both illuminated red at night.

Then we have two locations which seems to belong to the resistance, but are also illuminated red. Both have the same clue wall with maps, photo’s and documents linked together with red thread and pins.

Red Lights location in Gamla Stan (Old Town).
Route 22: Tutorial Graffiti - Click here
With the the new Dawn Update we got a few tutorial missions, and all over Archipelago we find Graffiti that show us how to tackle the various machines
I will list all Tutorial graffiti locations here when they cross my path.
The locations of a seeker Graffiti is found respectively at Stenhaga and at Lerberget
The locations of a runner Graffiti is found respectively on a white board in Saltholmen Church, on a target at Mörtnäs and on a shed at Stenhaga.
The locations of a Hunter Graffiti is found respectively in Forest worker barrack, on a white container at Mörtnäs farm and on the wall of a barn at Stenhaga.
The locations of a Harvester Graffiti is found respectively in Salthamn Bomb Shelter, on parking on road west of Björkvik Farm and in the garage at Seggesta Farm.
The location of a Tank Graffiti is found respectively outside on a garage wall at Seggesta Farm, and two in Alby Church.
The location of a Firebird Graffiti is found in the Hidden FNIX Facility in the North Coast.
Scenic summer bike rides in Ostertorn.
Experience the warm temperatures and cool breezes rustling the multi coloured leaves of tall trees on either side of the bicycle track. See the blue sky and dappled sunlight and red optics of a military grade hunter as you ride by…
@Gysbert could you do a root of all of the Soviet camps?
Sure, I will see what I can do. Do you mean all places with soviet presence or only these camps ?
Either is fine. It would just be nice to see all the Soviet installations.
Route 23: Soviet Camps - Click here
The Soviet Camps have interesting names, and I will try to give as much info I can find on them. If you have better ideas please let me know.
So far we can find 11 Soviet Camps / Bases / Outposts with this icon
Amurskijj Tigr Outpost
This Soviet Outpost is named after the Siberian tiger or Amur tiger and is native to the eastern part of the USSR. The outpost is located North of Garphammar in the Marshlands.
Trivia: Triangle bullet arrangement fount in Soviet tent
The name of this Soviet Outpost may come from old slavic folklore and means “Old witch” or “Old woman with horns”. The outpost is located North of Stenbacka in the North Coast. At this outpost you can find 7 Soviet EMP holders, each containing a small EMPs easily collected at night because the Soviet holders they are in, flashing a bluish-green light. When picked up you only get the EMP device, not the holders.

At night Soviet EMP holder flashing.
This Outpost is named after a "demonic mythical creature in Slavic mythology. It is believed to be a six-legged and horned monster. The outpost is located South of Jarvhålan in North Coast. One of the tents has a Soviet star on it. Not sure what the significance of that is.
This tent seems to a first aid or medic tent
Buryjj Medvet Base Camp
This Base Camp’s name means ‘Brown Bear’. It’s located West of the Skvadern Bunker in the Marshlands.
Trivia: Greek-Cross bullet arrangement fount in Soviet tent
Chjornyjj Kaban Outpost
This Soviet Outpost’s name means ‘Black Boar’. It’s located East of Norrmyra in the Marshlands.
Trivia: Hexagon bullet arrangement fount in Soviet tent
Before the Soviets occupied Ekebygården it was a Swedish Fishing & Outdoor activities center. It’s located West of Arkelstorp Lighthouse in the North Coast.
Seryjj Volk Base Camp
This Base Camp is named after the ‘Grey Wolf’ (E.g. like in the fairytale Seryi Volk & Krasnaya Shapochka (Little Red Riding Hood). The Base Camp is located South of Borgakulan in the Marshlands.
Trivia: Square bullet arrangement fount in Soviet tent
Soviet Command Quarters
This Soviet Camp is located within the walls of Hagaboda city and has it’s Command quarters set up in a local house, a stone’s throw away from the eastern wall. (First seen with New dawn)
Soviet Recon Camp
As the name is implying this Camp is set up by Soviet Reconnaissance Scouts for military observation of the Östertörn area and to locate or ascertain strategic enemy activities. The Camp is located in the woods on higher ground south of the Myrdalen Water Tower in the Marshlands.
Soviet Research Lab
In this Lab the Soviet scientists did research on Ticks, probably to find out what made them tick. The lab is located within the Hagaboda city walls, just north of Alby Church.
The Soviet Trenches are located east of the St. Anna Church ruins, where FNIX has established a Data Centre.
Dear lord @Gysbert how did you do this so fast? I asked you yesterday if you could make a route. Good job man. Im going to go find all of these tonight.
It’s not ready yet, need more pictures and gather some info.
I almost would have said that you already have screenshots of everything (including coordinates and a describtion of what is seen) which is in your map and that you just have to put them together.
That’s not how I work. I love these travel-assignments, because they give me a goal to travel the GZ-world on foot with the chance to find new things not yet seen before. I do have a lot of pictures, but they are most of the time not what I need. Heck even those that I just made I probably replace with nice weather ones.
But it’s always night, misty, or snowing when I need clear pictures.
Ok, what about this, as I haven’t seen such a route yet…
Could you make a hike route for trails?
In some of the last updates they were added at several places. I don’t know, but is the one at the starting location new with Dark Skies?
I take this as example for what I mean with trails. It leads to a small camp with tents next to Yttervik.
Yes, I know these trails well. I added them to the map too. But yes, these hike-trails with the Infartmarkörs would make a nice route.
Route 24: Bullet Doodles & Placings - Click here
We have first seen Bullet placings on a map in a house in Dyvik, where the bullets were used as markers on the map.
But since the involvement of the soviets it seems that they love to play around with bullet casings, making various shapes as way of passing the time when doing mind-numbing tasks, like e.g. listening to military radio chatter.
This single Triangle shape is found at Amurskijj Tigr Outpost.
Here I made a close up of a square Shape which is found at the Seryjj Volk Base Camp.
This shape is not exactly a regular Hexagon, not all sides have the same numbers of bullets. It is found at Chjornyjj Kaban Outpost.
Greek Cross Configuration
A single Greek Cross shape is found at Buryjj Medved Base Camp, and also one at the hidden FNIX Outpost.
The Heart shape is found on two different locations. One at the Hidden FNIX Outpost (doodled by Tatiana), and one in a tent at Landing Zone Boris.
Five-pointed Star Configuration
This five-pointed-like shape is not nearly a regular Star of David shape. Maybe a slightly deformed Asterisk? It is located next to the heart shape in a tent at Landing Zone Boris
Beacon or Rocket Configuration
This shape is not so clear to me, it’s not a star. To me it looked like the Soviet beacon symbol. It also looks like a dumpy rocket. Or, since Tatiana doodled this, she subconsciously meant it to be the tactical nuke that has made the big crater…
There are two instances of this shape, both at the Hidden FNIX Outpost.
I always wondered if there is a mystery behind that, like with the apples, or if it’s just for fun.
The devs probably wanted to show us the subconscious human activity in camps, where there is nothing else to do. In this case playing with empty bullet casings. It is part of the story-telling.
