If you look at 1:45 - 2:30.

Are we on a mountain here?
Could this be a small lake on top of mountain and it is the source of the river?

The shadows effects on the water are brutal. The highway scene is the most important... Look at the light on the horizon, could that be a small town?

This mystic shadow is starting at 1:08, isn't it?
Seems like a tree to me and the shadow is that big, because the sun is setting.

Hadn't noticed that before, but yeah it looks like a tree to me.

I think this is all on the North coast, the road view is from the lighthouse looking East, the tree is from the lighthouse looking West.
Edit: no that can't be right, we see a different tree a bit further east, and the background seems to match the things in the water of the coast shot.

These maps, particularly what GTAKiwi made, are AMAZING. Kudos to you lads icon14.gif . I have to say its gotten my hype up a bit...

This is going to be an incredible game. I just cannot wait to explore it all, especially the rural areas.

Just been reading the IGN preview again

"We play out the first part of the mission as Trevor, flying the chopper with Michael riding shotgun. From above the Los Santos skyline looks nothing short of beautiful, the monolithic skyscrapers cutting dark, ominous silhouettes against the orange cloud-kissed sunset. To the east itís possible to just make out Del Perro pier and beyond it the ocean, while to the west there are the rolling hills of the countryside. Far below freeways and roads snake in all directions and the pin-pricks of light reveal a city going about its business."


What does this mean for the orientation of the map?

Vinewood sign and Griffith Observatory are North or West?

I'm pretty sure that's a mistake. There is no doubt that the LS coast is on the west of the map.

They are probably flying from north to south. That would explain why the coast is on the east side.

Orientation doesn't change. West is always on the west no matter where you are facing. IGN just have no sense of direction and apparently are blind.

Oops, that's right, my bad. Seems like I'm as dumb as them. suicidal.gif

Haha easy mistake to make, but seeing as though IGN were actually there they should have been paying more attention. All they had to do was use a bit of logic, this is a representation of part of the west coast.

I always assumed the airfield in the middle of the map was an airforce base, but I've decided it must be where we see Trevor taking off, camera looking SW.† The tall buildings in the distance would be offices at film studios, Universal and Warner Bros are north of the Hollywood hills in real life.

I don't know why I started making a map as I mostly agree with the big one, but I might as well post it before the new trailers.

Cool map! I really like how it looks. That is good idea you put Hollywood reservoir on it. Is it obvious for everyone here that it is Hollywood reservoir on the left on this shot:
http://www.rockstarg...ot/481/1280.jpg
Also i think it is known out of this thread where Hollywood bowl and Greek theatre located, so why they still not added to the maps? Fido? jbte?
Someone posted an image hundreds pages ago depicts the part of a map where this three located, but i can't find it now.
The only thing i doubt is where the Greek theatre actually located. Could it be that texture-glitch-like thing or is it just east of it?

Yeah, sorry, he just didn't sign reservoir.
So what about that weird texture behind it, is it greek theatre or something else?

Which screen is the texture glitch? I haven't heard about this, although the reservoir doesn't look very watery. The place you circled as the Greek in the FIB picture I actually saw as being a dam to another level of the reservoir, but I don't know.

If you mean that ampitheatre looking texture glitch it is in fact a small vineyard type thing I think that is next to the Hollywood reservoir in real life, it was found not too far back. If you look at the Hollywood reservoir on google maps you will see the exact same thing a bit up from the dam.

Yes, i meant that circled object on the third and seventh pictures.
Reservoir was identified thanks to the the water intake tower. I don't think it is not watery, it is just too far from camera on all shots.

This is from the new kifflom site, pushes me to further believe that the scenery from the kifflom screensaver actually is an image of an island rather than the mainland. It seems they're located on 'Cayman Islands'

That's a pun, as the cayman islands are known as a tax paradise and a place for criminals and such to store their money.

I will answer you what I've already answered to other guy who made a question like yours.

Cayman islands is a fiscal paradise located in the Caribean. Chris Formage obviously deposits there the money he gets with the Epsilon Cult. Therefore, he said that about some problems he was having with the IRS.

In any case, if they land shown in the screensaver is actually an island, seeing the size I guess it just could be Santa Catalina or San Clemente islands, which are at some miles off the coast of Los Angeles.
