I have a question for GTAKiwi:
Are you planning to make updates to your map in the future? I don't think that we're going to find very many new places any time soon, I was just wondering what you think should become of the map.
As far as can I see, there are six shots that could be added, mostly in the north-east:
- Dead guy in the water
- Recreation area
- Trevor driving past satellite dishes
- Wind park
- Nighttime air combat near Vinewood Sign
Also, I found four very minor inaccuracies or potential improvements (I tried hard to find more, but I think that's really it ), mostly at the edges of the region you were mapping:
- You have a bit of coastline east of Los Santos inside your "known" zone, and I don't think we have seen that yet.
- There are a few shots that show at least one prominent peak east of Los Santos.
- Just west of the observatory, there should be one more distinct hill.
- Both the wind park shot and the air combat shot show three distinct mountains at the eastern edge of the known world.
So my question is if you think such changes should be made, eventually -- and if yes, then if you want to take care of it.
I guess updating the map might also be a technical question. But I'm pretty sure one could add a new, transparent layer with changes that would leave the original map intact.
Thanks for all the feedback on my map guys.
@lxr, lol no I'm not secretly working with OUPS, I actually thought the map went like this before he even posted his theory. But when he posted how he thought it went, it backed up what I was thinking.
And because I wasn't a member here at the time, I wasn't able to post my thoughts on how the map went.
I've actually just finished updating my map a bit. I've added some things I forgot to add in my first map.
More roads now, and few extra things in the country side, and also updated the picture viewing angles.
I've already added some of the image view points you said about to the new map, but some of the other ones I'm not sure exactly where they go, so I haven't put them in.
About the errors you found in my map:
-The coast off to the east of Los Santos looks like it went like that in the shot where the jeep drives out the back of the plane. I could be wrong though.
-Haven't really looked to much into the hills on the east side of Los Santos.
-I think I might have added this hill to the west of the observatory in the new map.
-I've looked closely at the wind park shot and the jet shot, and I'm not 100% sure where exactly they fit into the map, so I've left them out for now.
I'm not sure if I'll keep updating this map. I did it just to see what the map would roughly look like with what we've seen so far.
I've most likely made some mistakes with my map, but this should be the basic layout to what we can see in the pictures/trailer.
