To not give too much of the game away?

To show improvements; changes and the subtle differences between the different builds, alpha and beta stages of the game.

GTA V will be about twice the size of GTA SA, and it will only feature one major city, Los Santos. Don't expect too many similarities between the two maps.

Let me first start off by saying that i assume that the big mountain on the right side of the new Cuban 800 is Mt. Alamo (i'm not the only one who believes this).

Let's analyse Mt. Alamo by using the lighthouse screenshot. Before this gets derailed by someone claiming it's not Mt. Alamo, i'll post this proof that i also posted on May 5:

So now we can all see those are the same mountains, we can continue.

Here's the lighthouse screenshot, i adjusted the brightness. (I did this in 2 parts as you can see. If i used 1 big block i messed up either one side of the mountain).

The screenshot above is crucial, take a look at the shape of the mountain.

Now let's move over to that old Trevor with the dead guy screenshot, i copied that part of Mt. Alamo from the sceenshot i adjusted and added some lines.

user posted image
Note that there are also gray lines, they are hard to see, i should have used another color

I believe this kinda sums up why the lighthouse should be placed way further to the south on the eastern part of the map.
Some users here placed it quite far to the north on their maps, but if it really was that far north, we wouldn't be able to see the green line i drew because it would be blocked by the red line. It's the classic "angle" story.

I believe "bobqwerty" is very correct with the placement of the lighthouse on his map. (his map can be found just a few posts above this post).

Doubled, I think that central grey line you've drawn is actually the ridge that goes over Trevor's head.
If you look at the Trevor pic, all the other ridges begin from the left side of the peak, the grey ones come from the right hand side.

The red and green lines from the lighthouse seem relatively bunched up, which would mean it was further North or East from Trevor.

O wow, geez, that would totally destory my theory i just posted. biggrin.gif
I'm not so sure about what you say, i can also see likenesses in the ridges of the mountains in both screenshot.
What do the other mappers think about this?

I know, I've been through all these thoughts myself, but the lighthouse area being in North East corner is what I'm sticking to for now.

Pretty sure that the main/top rim in the Trevor pic is the one that runs towards the viewer in the lighthouse shot.

@zombie elvis
If you take a look at the top of Mt. Alamo on the Trevor with the dead guy screenshot and the lighthouse screenshot you will see that they are the same. With the theory you have those tops would have looked different on both screenshots i believe.

Now you´re just being childish. You compare some ingame footage of GTA IV where you say some blood stains looks like the map of IV - which it clearly doesn´t.

But I aint gonna go further into this discussion due to respect to this thread.

Btw I didn´t say it WAS the map in the trailer, I just said it could be the outline of it and that it looked suspicious...

First of all, he said (of course joking) he found the map of GTA VI, not IV. He was ofcourse mocking all the conspiracy type of people.
Second: He just showed you that IV used the same bloodstain all over the place, look at it again. So yeah, he basically proved that R* uses the same texture for some decorative purposes. V will probably too, hence the repeated 'map' stain. Final thing I'm gonna say about this subject.

I like the new maps!

Spotted the lighthouse in the Trevor Trailer. Assuming its the same one. Its easier to see if you watch the trailer, and in slow motion.

m, I thought it was a tower but now I look at it appears to be a texture thing where the fence wire is slightly wider, you can see it a few other places like above the plant to the left of that.

Urg,
I've changed my mind (again) Looking at a sequence of frames it doesn't seem to stay still relative to the fence but sticks to the hills. Kind of hard to tell with the compression but it could be something that's just dark enough to make the fence look darker where it overlaps. I don't think it could be the lighthouse though.

These maps are coming along amazingly but as we get more screenshots there is less and less room for a substantial desert, which worries me.

Do you also believe that the mountain behind Trevor's head and the one on right of cuban 800 is also the large triangular one we see north of city from the bank tower?

If so let me ask 2 questions

1. What do you estimate the distance to be between Vinewood sign and the mountain.

2. What do you estimate the distance to be between the lighthouse and the mountain.

When I watched it with what you said in mind. It is the textures overlapping.

I'd like to but I can't.
I always modify the previous map to make the new one so they always get erased.
I still have a version from July 2012.
You can find it in my flickr album wink.gif

No, don't think so. The shape of that mountain looks exactly like the one in this screenshot.

I have found Sandy Shores. It's at the back of Mt. Chilliah, at northwest. Shouldn't we see part of Mt. Alamo in the red grid? Maybe Rockstar went with a rectangular layout. turn.gif

No, don't think so. The shape of that mountain looks exactly like the one in this screenshot.

Look at the mountain in the distance to the left of the one behind Trevor's head, do you think that is the triangular one north of bank tower?

Look at the left slope in bank tower screenshot and compare with right slope in Trevor screenshot.

Look at the right slope in bank tower screenshot and compare with left slope in Trevor screenshot.

And compare the shape

Not the one behind Trevor's head but the one in distance.

What you think?
