whatever it is its coming out from behind those mountins and this means it is quite far away. the things that hold up electric cable normally run quite close together and you can see cables between the them. I strongly believe what we are seeing is the first tower of a very long suspension bridge.

Show me one image of a suspension bridge of that size that would be located in the mountains... wink.gif

If you take a very close look, it matches the power pole almost perfectly.

Probably the map is way bigger than we expect, there must be another airport to the east side (backwards from that overview), far away from LS. I speculate R* is hiding something more... I really hope for another city, possibly Las Venturas or any other...

Hope this image helps to find new places and beyond... I've merged 23 frames from the trailer to make that huge image...

Great job!

Supermax Prison, probably based on Pelican Bay:

doing this is funny

Since you're enjoying it, and seem to be very good at drawing angles, I'd say this is the way to go:

1. Study Fido_le_muet's photostream for a while.

2. Take a look at more screenshots from the new trailer.

3. Try to draw a precise map of downtown, about 3 by 4 blocks.

4. Now you should be able to construct many places, simply by drawing straight lines.

Very bad sketch of mine, but you'll get the idea:

I stole and put my edits in some of your screenshots. I hope this makes sense.

In this shot during the boat scene we see the LSX airport control tower.

Same scene from reverse angle the freeway lines up with the observatory on the hill.

Here is the view from the observatory lining up the freeway and what I think is the tower and the airport.

Not entirely sure which prison it is, but it's certainly a prison. Notifiable by their building structure that's consistent through-out just about all of them.

A couple more examples:

Keep up the great work all. You got me into looking at maps. It's actually quite fun.

good job man!


BUT, this means that everything we have seen so far is right next to Los Santos?
The lake, the mountains, the river.... all those screens are right after city ends.

I really thought this would be bigger? more wide, endless landscapes, stretching over many many miles??

Look above the right wing (on the left here) of that plane in the first picture. Is that the LS skyline? I think that would put this runway to the south east of downtown.
