@Kesta

I think in this screenshot below we are looking North. The main mountain in this shot is Zancudo/Josiah

The Mt. Chiliad mountain range BEGINS to the West. I circled where I think it begins.

Well I hope you are right tbh, because we know that Chiliad is the highest peak, and if the mountain in that image is only Zancudo as I stated on the last page, then Chiliad would have to be ridiculously big.

You guys are giving me a headache with all these arguments about the mountains.
Northern mountain is Alamo. Eastern is Zancudo.
Not much else to say really.

We're just saying that the mountain seen in the bank tower image is Zancudo, not Alamo.

Well we presume Chiliad is the biggest. For all we know the Hiker screenshot was Josiah or whatever they called it in the previews and Zancudo is Chiliad.

Kesta my map will have lots of things wrong with it but I've set both of these shots to face exactly West.

If you limit mountain sides to only be facing North, South, East or West you'll get very confused.

This is where I presume it will be. Makes the most sense since the desert will be to the East.

Depends how the camera was angled. Their west could be east or vice versa. Common sense would put the military base in the desert. Unless of course there are multiple military bases which is definitely possible.

West and east don't move, you're thinking of left and right biggrin.gif . There could of course be 2 "military" bases, a naval base to the west and an area 51-like base in the east.

I'm pretty sure it was confirmed in the last round of previews that Chiliad is the highest point in the game, I remember some of the quote ('taller than any of the skyscrapers in downtown Los Santos'). Sorry to cause confusion here, I'm just having a hard time accepting that these two (which are clearly the same) are the same as this one as the shapes are nothing alike IMO. The latter has more in common structurally to Zancudo.

Which is what we've been arguing for the past 2 pages haha, that it IS Zancudo.

I think the military base is on the western side of the map and in the desert. The desert we see in Trevor trailer "been shot amigo".

If you think about how they have adjusted the map to real life, it would make some sort of sense.

Alamo Sea is in reality EAST of LA, but in GTA V it is NORTH. Desert in reality is NORTH, but in GTA V it is WEST.

It could be they have twisted the landscape so it fits an island square type of map.

I think those 3 mountains in the links are 3 different mountains. tounge.gif

Thought Chiliad is a few meters taller than Zancudo mountain.

Is anyone able to find out the height of Chiliad compared to the height of the tallest skyscraper in San Andreas?

edit

I found some numbers that seem reasonable

LS Tower in San Andreas was ~310m tall = tallest building

Mount Chiliad in San Andreas was ~500m tall = tallest mountain


So, if Bank Tower is a similar height in GTA V, what would you estimate the height of the large triangular mountain to be?

If we talking 350-400-450m, then I really don't think that the large triangular mountain is the tallest mountain in the game.


I would expect the tallest mountain in the game to be at least 600m, maybe even taller.

What I meant was if they were parachuting facing south towards LS then East would be West to them...get it?

The mountain on the right is much closer than the one behind the water tower, so it is likely to be 100s of meters taller.

I don't.

The first 2 are clearly the same mountain...

I don't think we have enough to go on to do that. BUT if you look at the observatory pic, the buildings are about the same height as the camera there, so...

I'd say the tallest point will be more than double the height of the bank tower but I can't be precise.

See my post above I edited a little.

The Bank tower seems to be roughly same height as Griffith observatory and then we can clearly see the large triangular mountain is taller.

If you were to place the Bank tower right next to the mountain behind Trevor's head, which do you think would be taller and by how much?

The dam screenshot is a good angle to compare

I have it as around 1km tall on my map compared to the 310m tower.

The red line represents 1000m and the blue line represents the bank tower. I actually made the bank tower larger.

There is no way that mountain is 1000m tall.

but surely since the red line is as tall as the mountain looking from that angle, that would in fact make the mountain taller than your red line, no?

It would be really cool, but I think this won't be possible til the release of the game (or maybe 1 week before when many leaks comes out) cause they would never reveal game map before it.
