General Glyph Study
« on: September 12, 2013, 11:11:37 »
I am currently doing a study on the glyphs its not finished yet, but anyway. Best to prepare a thread here for my results.

In my study I should be able to say

How many Glyphs in total in the streets
Total Glyphs in Momassa Streets:261

How many Glyphs per district
District 0:25
District 3:30
District 4:47
District 5:31
District 6:108
District 8:15
District 9:12
District 10:18

How many of a certain type of Glyph they are.
Basic Glyph:109
Glyph A:97
Glyph B:42
Basic Circle:1
Super Circle:7
Super B Glyph:5
Super Triglyph:1

Direction of most glyphs(excluding most on the floor sadly as they can be any direction)
See file I will add

Give a good location where to find most if not all glyphs as they usually have notable locations
Have a map of every Glyph map may be a edits of scats old superglyph map. But it helped me get to the locations easier.

Still need to do Bonus work if I get to it
Glyphs in Kikowani Station
Glyphs in legendary cutscene

Quick question, does anyone here think Glyph Direction means anything. Doing a huge count of Glyphs including directions, types so on, would be a shame if it was pointless.

A frog once said if you read this you'll die but how would he know you'll die. He's a frog and frogs can't talk. Who would listen to this frog. So to read this he just wasted your life for a few minutes meaning you are closer to dying anyway so the frog was telling the truth but frogs can't talk?

If you break it up by districts, we could help you out. I think it would be worthwhile to keep up with glyph direction. I suggest we notate the direction by which 'spoke' of the Y is horizontal or vertical. For instance, this shape:
Code: [Select]
\__
/
would be right, and this:
Code: [Select]
|
/\
would be up.
ODST is all about switches, isn't it?

Note

heres a very simple map I made.
PS I used Scats old Super Glyph map, It really helped simplify things

Could you not tell the orientation of a glyph using the compass? So floor glyphs would be North, East, Southwest, etc.

I was struggling what to consider to be honest. Compass or directionthey face when you see them.

Compass would be the best, I think, as wall glyphs could be givenca direction by the compass too. But no matter, goreay job CIA! :) This is some good raw data after all. Did you btw include the glyphs in the armories (??, the places with mongooses and weapons?) to the count?

EDIT: Yes you did. Sorry for doubting that actually >_<

May be small but there are 7 different types of glyphs also. May be a 7 reference xD
