Mount chiliad is literary the tallest mountain in the game, yet we haven't seen it since the first trailer.

I'm calling it; Those hikers were in front of a green screen.

No shot bro...

They wouldn't show that in the 1st trailer and not include it in the game.

This is one of the most interesting shots from new trailer and I surprised not many discussing it.

I believe this area is on the eastern edge of the map and when Trevor is on that train he is heading North.

Trevor climbs on top of train here and it goes through a tunnel, through one of the mountains, then once it comes out the other side Trevor jumps off over the river, to avoid the collision with other train.

I think this whole area is the wilderness area mentioned by GI, and Chiliad is one of the peaks within this wilderness area.

In the first screenshot above, the Alamo Sea is on the other side of that mountain on the right, the train tracks run on its east side and Alamo Sea is on its west side.

Obviously..

But honestly, I think that R* will be quite careful not to repeat the GTA IV leak they did with the police boat GPS screens..

The Hikers were standing around here I think, looking South West to the peak.

I thought this thread would be a bustling hive of activity after the new trailers, but it surprisingly is not

So much to discuss people!

Well, there's not that much new things to discuss.
I'm currently updating my map but it's a long process.
I'm probably gonna start mapping the countryside now that I think we have enough to go with.

We were trying to identify several buildings earlier but without sucess (the church in Franklin's trailer, near the liquor store, another building near that same district, the subway entrance in Michael's video, and many more.)

After re-examining it, I think you may be right! mercie_blink.gif
I really wanted to see some glimpse of the map, but after the whole boat thing revealing a map last time around maybe not.

Here's what I don't get about that picture:
In the upper screen on the right (next to the purple circle) there's apparently a somewhat tall building.
What is that and where is it in the bottom screen?
Can somebody clear things up a little, please?

Bullshots are heavily edited to look significantly better than they really are, that's why.

The tall building would be behind Micheal in the bottom screenshot.

Edit-NVM. I read it wrong and thought you were referring to the tall, black building. Sorry.

I think it's all about angles.
In the bottom screen, the building is most likely behind the church, on the left.

Fido what do you think:
At 0:49 in Michael's trailer (golf course scene) there's a similar shaped building. It's tall enough to be the one in the picture, I think.
EDIT: Okay I just noticed that in the Observatory shot, where you marked most of the buildings, there's one major building left in that area and it might be in fact this one.

Yup, agreed. We can map that entire valley and now add some freeways to it too. We've got the rocket shot from street level, from bridge level, and then shots of each bridge all the way round the mountain down to the salton sea.

I also think it is all the same area, but I don't think there is just one valley.

I think we are seeing the same river, but not the same mountains and bridges.

The river is not just going to go in a straight line from point A-B, ocean to Alamo Sea, cutting through one valley.

We already know that there are waterfalls, so that means the source of the river is higher than the mouth.

The river is flowing into the Alamo Sea.

The source is up one of the mountains.

So the river has to wind round the mountains and follow a twisting path, doubling back at least once.

And I think the train bridges cross over the river more than just one time, so there is not just one valley.

I don't think the valley in the parachute and train screenshot is the same as the one in the new screenshot showing wide view of landscape.

Also one of the very earliest screenshots of red plane flying over river I think this is close to the source and fairly high up.
