The puzzles use the same coordinates, the compass is merely correctly calibrated. The puzzles even work the same outside of Sub3 e.g. in Sub4. The Loop certainly has coordinates of its own.

Being that the Layers are stacked on top of each other, and if you're saying the Geotags have the Z-axis component, why didn't it register that the other person was on a different Layer?
No, I meant the Z axis. X and Y cover the 1st and 2nd dimension, the Z axis covers the 3rd dimension. Its on the AutoCadd, if you use 3-D modeling.

The Geo tags were made for 2 dimension They said they where in the same location, but couldn't find each other.

That's what I said a while back - about Geotags being only X and Y - but I think Abacus reminded me that they probably go in the Z direction too, but only for that Layer. We went on to label the direction that each Layer goes in as "W," I believe (the letter before X, Y and Z, to avoid confusion.)

I understand 3D, you said:
I think it follow the Z coordinates, not the XY.
Are you saying you meant coordinate, singular? What threw me off was the plural, "Coordinates," meaning more than 1 Z-Axis or something.

Z axis is in rooms like 806. Notice its "L" shape.

Also, the divice found in sub3 works like a GPS as well.

Hmm... why are we calling navigator "The Navigator"? In game it was called II0IIII or something like that.

The game given name was to show which layer you are in.
Nothing to do with it's real name.
Is this my final form?

I don't see what The Cliffs have to do with anything...

The I's represented potential Layers, the 0 represented the Layer we were on.

His point is that the Cliffs occupies three dimensional space. Which has little to do with anything as you said.
