I only just realised where the word Alamo comes from (maybe?)

Do you think there's a slight chance we'll be able to follow the river down to Mexico? biggrin.gif

they won't be mexico because the map will be an Island and Alamo Sea is indeed based on Salton sea.

The pic I posted is the Salton Sea. My point being, it's funny the Alamo River runs down to the border of Mexico. And it's called the Alamo Sea in GTAV... just a strange connection there. I just wish for a small piece of Mexico or at least a border. I guess it might not work for an island unless they put an actual mexican town in.

Do you guys think this fits? If so... then it could help to get a better feel, where the mountain in the Boat screenshot will be.

I did zoomed in on my phone and it just looks like the bottom of a shoe when you step on mud then on concrete. I just don't know why it has those white circles. Well at least I think it resembles a foot.

Those circles are often found on sporting shoes. It allows one to quickly pivot on the front or back of your foot. Especially useful for indoor sports.

Interesting... because those mountains in the distance indeed look a bit like we'd expect that dam/reservoir flank to look.

Still... if you were correct, wouldn't we have to see Downtown in the other shot as well? Instead, there's that highway on the right, maybe that helps.

Just wondering why most of the maps have LS at the bottom (south) and not facing more towards the left (west) of the map like in real life. That awesome map above kinda has that idea.

I'm sorry choco... But I can't take your map seriously. It looks like a brown Homer Simpson  lol.gif

It's also because it's just solid colours and hard to place a perspective of where things are and the height of mountains etc.... jbte's is a little easier to understand the perspective of everything imo. Zombie Elvis is also great.


It's better to be accurate than pretty. Everything on my map lines up well according to the screenshots. I was never really interested in the fine details anyway. All I wanted was to get a basic layout and size of the map.

@lxr. Yeah i think the boat shot is facing more to the east.

I thing the Boat shot is looking almost exactly from west to east based, on fidos Map.

I've scanned most of this forum, but haven't seen this mentioned yet.

Anyone think Death Valley might be in the game? I mean it's not too far away from LA county (it resides in San Bernadino co.)

Reasons why Death Valley could make an appearance:

1. Death Valley is apart of the Mojave Desert which is the most well known desert in the country.

2. Death Valley has the record for the highest temperature ever recorded.

3. Death Valley is east of Mt. Whitney, the tallest mountain peak in California. (14,500 ft.)
- I know this height is outlandish, but just... just roll with me on this one wink.gif

4. I believe it was CVG or Game Informer mentioned being 13,000 ft. in the air, now if planes are allowed to go that high; wouldn't you think there was a mountain peak that high in the game?

5. Death Valley is also famous for it's ghost towns...

6. Death Valley is in a basin surrounded by mountains that receive snowfall.

7. R* can't resist coming up with a satirical name for Death Valley.

Also Mt. Whitney:
(http://s7.postimg.org/qp7lupx3f/800px_Mount_Whitney_2003_03_25.jpg)
&
"Hiker Mountain"
http://s17.postimg.o...g_the_climb.jpg

It has those four ridges from the hiker mountain photo. I know it's a stretch, but there are similarities. Perhaps this is Chilliad during the summer and then it will be different (snowy) during the winter. Therefor certain vehicles will only be available in certain seasons? R* is definitely adding in a lot of elements, so why not the seasons?

Any thoughts?

Death Valley?

Yes please.
If I had to hazard a guess as to where this would be located I would say around the windfarm, maybe a bit further east, as the Mojave is located NE of LA I believe, and some of those mountains in that area remind me of the Sierra Nevada.

What really wonders me is where that interstate leads to. Will it be a giant circuit around the island, break up in the desert or possibly lead to another large settlement?

I'd bet on it circling the whole map.

I have to agree. There should be at least 1 second smaller city, even if it's Alderney size I'll be happy. That or a few Bohan sized towns. All to make it feel like a real life county and not just a city with a backyard.

Lol, this is probably the most quoted post in this thread.

I have a question regarding your map, where does that airport (at least that's what it looks like) come from that is located in the western part of the map?

This screenshot is looking at the opposite side as the screenshot above, so it's looking towards Lake Alamo (even tho you can't see it in this screen):
