Quick question, to which I'm sure this has already been found back in the day. Had anyone pinpointed where this house is:

Rock Star Games mentioned that Grand Theft Auto V is 3.5 times larger than Red Dead Redemption (28 square miles); in other words, Grand Theft Auto V is approximately 98 square miles. As a comparison:

Grand Theft Auto V will be approximately 7 times larger than Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (13.9 square miles).

Grand Theft Auto V will be approximately 16 times larger than Grand Theft Auto IV (6 square miles).


GTA5 will little bit larger than World of Warcraft

I honestly don't think that is the same red sign in both shots.

I would suppose that the car wash is much closer to downtown than franklin's hood.

Vinewood is closer to downtown than it is in real life. The airport is closer to downtown than it is in real life.

The Salton sea is going to be closer to Los Santos than it is in real life. Basically everything is going to be closer

to everything else than it is in real life. If you were expecting a 1:1 scale then that's a bit dumb.

There could be more than 1 of those red signs around the city... who knows... maybe they're the Pay N Spray signs?

I don't think it's been pinpointed. My guess is east-northeast of downtown.

Why are people acting like this is such a surprise? Rockstar told us a long time ago that the geography of everything had to be somewhat compressed. They weren't going for creating a life sized replica of LA. It's their reimagined version of Southern California. The size and locations of everything they put in the game are up to them. What matters most is the atmosphere and the feeling that we're in a living breathing world. When we all finally play this game, I don't think anyone will be focusing on the size of the city as much as how high the quality of everything is.

Plus I'm pretty sure they'd get a lot of sh*t for being a crime "simulator" in a 1:1 recreation of LA. People would plan some stupid shootings or a heist... I don't think it would go unbanned if they did such a thing.

They have to condense it as much as possible to make room for Los Puerta and/or whatever else the map has to offer. They also try to limit LS to the popular culturally significant parts. Much of what's between the hood and downtown IRL may have been cut out.

The scar around the right eye of the Eplison dude is the map. I've always been convinced of this.

I decided to steal Luuno's idea and use it on my map to see what it would look like. The placement of the desert and everything isn't accurate. I just threw it all together really quickly.

So it's like a ten block difference? Pfff, big deal. Besides, that skyscraper looks like it's a ways off.

A few updates to my map. Corrections to Los Santos to make it a bit more accurate. I've also
made some other minor tweaks here and there. Also added sightlines and pictures to the map to
show you where some of the pictures have been taken from. It also shows you how they all link
together, and why I've made the map the way I have.

Please remember that my map isn't perfect, and that there are still plenty of small errors, and possibly
even some larger errors. But everything on the map should roughly be placed in their correct locations.

Fido, Could you please update my map in the OP with the map below, Thanks.

Click on the map below for the huge version.

Damn! You are awesome! I guess we will never know what is at the unknown areas until the game comes out, I'm sure there is something they don't wanna show us... but what could it be?

Same here. My guess is that R* will dedicate a series of screens or a trailer to the significant Hispanic (predominantly Mexican in LA) presence in LS. Either that or Los Puerta and the border region will be the focus Mexican culture in V; assuming the latter is included in some way.
