Could this be the lighthouse?

Edit: I thought it could, but I don't think it could be seen from there, but it's the beach behind the same mountain, Mt. Flat. fits with the idea that this is going up around the back of Mt. Alamo.

Yep, that screen with Chop and Franklin was the screen I looked for. smile.gif
A shame no easily identifiable buildings are in the shot, but the traintracks are at least something to go by... better than nothing.

In the above screenshot we are ~north and looking ~south.

The triangular mountain in the distance is the same triangular mountain north of the city.

Trevor passes that rocket when he stood on top of the train, he is heading anti clockwise around the map.

He jumps off over the river seen in above screenshot.

The rocket is either located NE or E.

I said for ages that there is a huge range of mountains in the NE, consisting of at least half a dozen mountains and that Chiliad will be one of them.

I now think there could be as many as 10 mountains in this range.

It stretch from E-NE-N and the Alamo Sea will border all the inner mountains

I think you can see the runway here with a plane on it, the location seems right. To the right are those towers behind the plane in Trailer 2. It looks like they could be silos for a mine or something, it looks like an old industrial area.

Edit: Ignore that, the way the dishes are means he must be south of the airfield. It could be the prison airstrip thing in the background though.

Updated my map to include some new areas. These new areas might not be correct. Also the scale
of the mountains is not correct, so that's why some things may not line up correctly. And just so
you know, Los Santos is not correctly scaled with the surrounding countryside.

The 2 mountains in the foreground are near the coast, we know because we seen the new screenshots showing the train tracks running round the map.

There is no way that either of those mountains in the foreground are the triangular mountain we see from the city.

Nice.
If I do more on a map it's going to change quite a bit, I used to have Malibu really far south but I think it's an exact copy of the LA coastline now, from Malibu to the port area.

Yes that is more like how I think it is now. I'm not sure if they are the prison towers or not, but it's something near there.

I think there could be more than one location where we find radio telescopes.

Think how many times they have featured in trailers and screenshots, if they found in only one location then RockStar are bloody obsessed with that one area.

Also they look different in some screenshots compared to others.

I havent read this entire thread, and I commend you guys that are able to figure out the entire areas just by pictures. Could someone summarize to me why they think theres an an entire area to the east and west we havent seen yet?

The map is based off of camera angles. The point at which the picture is taken only captures what's in front of the camera, not behind.

As the picture says, those are unknown areas. They haven't shown them, so we don't know if there's land or water there. The triangular area just northwest of the city can probably be filled in now though.

As always, great job!

That triangular "UNKNOWN AREA" in the west may turn out to be a bit smaller, giver that Zancudo River would have to be rotated a bit in order to match the scene from the third trailer. (Actually, if Mt. Wine = Rockford Hill, it would hardly exist at all.)

I think it is from opposite angle. Top picture shows "point" going right (six antennas making triangle), while on second point down (left). Except if it is reversed image.
And on first I only see 5 antennas or is on 5 also?

Is anybody willing to make a map using this wall tear as a land mass guide? I pointed out the land vs water. Use this please as a foundation. Based on what we gathered from trailers/screens.


user posted image

I truly believe R* used this wall tear as a hint on the map will see in GTA V. This rip is too clean and perfect for it to be a random tear. You all may feel like it's just a tear in the wall, but notice this wall tear was also seen in trailer #2 in the ranch house scene that Trevor blows up. What are the odds an exact rip? Come on now people, whether it's just nonsense or true, it's worth considering.

I truly believe you're looking into things way too much. Rockstar wont ever reveal the map to their new game in a trailer in any "hidden" way.

The ranting and raving of a crazy man.
Also that GTA IV map thing was a mistake on R*'s part. They even said they'd be working hard to make sure nothing like that ever happened again.
Stop trying so hard and relax! There isn't a conspiracy in everything Rockstar releases.

Hence "hidden". That was an accident, and I'm sure it wasn't their intention to reveal it at that point.
Once you see the real map you'd realise how much of a retard you seem like right now.

This could hint to how the map is outlined. I mean, look at it. Its pretty near to what we estimate the map will look like, just without details.

Im not saying that it is the map, but it could aswell be it. Just undetailed...

(Think about it, why would they have two exact same wall tear on two different locations in two different trailers. Im not a person whi likes conspiracy, but this is suspicious as hell)

also the one in GTA IV was on a GPS in a boat,far more obvious and actually plausible than a stain or whatever it is on a wall ,seen easily from everyone...

Because reusing textures is a thing all game devs do. Especially textures as trivial as wall decay.
