above the planes right (or left if you're facing the front of the plane) in between the two mountains intersecting each other there is what looks like a bridge, has anyone else seen this? or can confirm what bridge it is, if it is infact a bridgeá

Electric tower

It's pretty tall but i agree smile.gif

@ Pillemannscharo: This has been analysed already. It is believed that the round structure is a prison, possibly California State at Lancaster. Please read back about 5 pages or so.

This is what I could roughly figure to be the coastline for Los Santos.

If this is true then where the hell are places like Compton, Watts, Inglewood and South Central in general?
I wasn't expecting all these neighbourhoods but I was expecting a large suburban area to the south and it just doesn't look like it's there at all.

That's just the fog. No way in hell R* would cut off that much of real life LA in Los Santos. South LA is completely missing if that's the actual coastline.

Also, here's a real life photo that is pretty close to what we saw in the trailer from the Griffith Observatory. They aren't really similar in terms of the view and actual scale with downtown being put very close to the observatory and the colors with LS being too gray for my liking.

EDIT: Wow I just saw what seemed to be a beach line in that photo you said was the coastline mercie_blink.gif . Either that or its the fog. Please be the fog suicidal.gif

It's very worrying if that is the coastline. I'm not saying the city is small, I'm just worried about such an important part of the city being ignored. I just can't see the suburban area at all.

Found two of the beach houses from the trailer.
The colorful one and the Mediterranean one.

So the Airport should be around here, because on your last screen you can see the Observatory in the background on top of the Hills, and from the observatory you can see the two Hotels left of the Airport.

I apologise profusely if this has already been mentioned but look at the red circle in this pic.
This is a large suspension bridge but where does it go

Seems to be, yeah.

The scene is weird. They never seem to cross the damn bridge! Even though at the beginning of the scene they are about to cross it. Then at the end of the scene they're around the same spot they started at in the beginning. mercie_blink.gif

Not sure if this is pointed out but could that ballpark on the right be Dodger Stadium?

It's obscured by Trevor though, so it could be just some baseball field.

Not sure what part of the pic you're referring to, but if it's the part with the sand there. I think that's actually a sand trap, golf thingy.

That pic is f*cked up though. That grey smudgy part. Not sure why they did that. Looks horribly edited.

This seems 100% unidentifiable to me.

Maybe Owens Valley Radio Observatory but so far from LA

Can you clarify what you are both looking at please?

Yes the location is correct for LSX (LAX). I see the fog hiding quite a bit of the city mainly because the airport runways are 6L 6R 24L 24R and 7L 7R 25L 25R which the magnetic heading tells us 060 070 240 and 250. That means they run west and east not north and south which that screenshot would have us believe. Make any sense? It seems that most of what we are calling fog is actually smog (air pollution) that R* modeled in the weather engine. On a day with heavy smog and rolling fog you would get similar pictures as to what we are seeing. There is no doubt in my mind that R* would be hiding many parts of the map. I saw a screenshot earlier of Trevor on a quad bike with that gray photoshopped area. I believe that may have been an earlier screenshot of the selection with a train grayed out due to trains not being revealed yet. Just a guess on that one.

Here is a reference of LAX in LA.

Do you guys think there is a chance this is Compton/Woodley Airfield?

Fits with all the villas on the side of the Tarmac

http://www.airliners...inct_entry=true

That is a good guess but based off of the topography and the skyline on the left I would say it would be based off of Bob Hope Airport "Burbank KBUR" on the other side (north)of the Hollywood Hills.

http://maps.google.c...947505&t=h&z=14

Using that map if you go to the highway north of runway 15 and are streetview you would have to look southeast to see the skyline. I don't believe you can in real life but remember that R* woudl have scaled things down to where the skyline could be visible.

http://155.178.201.1...212/00067AD.PDF

That is an airport diagram, and Trevor would be on Taxiway Alpha taxiing towards runway 15.

Scratch that guys, I am looking at it over and over and I just don't see R* putting the skyline that close, not to mention the mountains that would be to the South of LA would be massive. The search continues!

Why would that be the Compton Airport? I didn't know Compton was surrounded by desert and cactus.

We do, read a few posts back. On the scene from trailer #2 when Michael is catching his son in the backseat of the Sentinal you can see LSX. With that location and the bridge ahead we now know that LSX will be in the spot of real world LAX.

I was simply providing a quick reference that is one page back without him having to dig for what you are referring to. I know it was pointed out, I saw.

To be honest alot of the smog you're seeing is going to be a tool for rockstar to hide the draw distance limitations with the current hardware they are working on
