On October 5, 2012 at 16:57 CEST (UTC+02:00), another clue was sent through IRC, presumably from the developers.

It's from almost the same IP address (based in London, UK) as the last two hints, which helps its credibility.

RAW transmission on IRC:

More readable formatting:

INCOMING TRANSMISSION - LOC 2 LAYER 2 SUBSTRATA 3 X01/X02 HALOS PROJECT INITIATED
41Nb recovered. HAFB Compromised.
Transfer to site complete, project HALOS underway. Further INFO [Classified].
CODE BASE 64 compromised, switch to old code talker.
They are watching, assume leaker on site.
WSMR No longer viable location, move to main site, check external sources.


SOLUTIONSEdit

41Nb
Refers to element number 41, Niobium
HAFB
Holloman Air Force Base
WSMR
White Sands Missile Range

All of the above items were referenced in IRC clue 2. The message found in that clue contained instructions directing someone to a location on the outskirts of Holloman Air Force Base (HAFB) to where Niobium had been transferred.

X01/X02
Most likely refers to the two classified labs labeled X01 and X02 as shown on the floor map of the Biodome Facility.
