Does they say why they removed the second river from theirs map? Must be a good reason for such a move.
Sorry, can't watch the video for now, the home internet is fcking up third day and 3g is too expensive for that.

^ ehm, what do you mean? I think it is near Alamo sea on the south or southwest shore. You can see the dike around the town - it's real life counterpart is dike in Bombay beach, so when we look at the sandy shores sign Alamo sea is just behind the town and the desert is behind the point of view. It really could be where gtavoclock put it if the mountain you see in the background is not mount Alamo but the one between Satellite dishes and Alamo Sea, but i do not shink it is so huge.

update: here is illustration of my thoughts, i've already posted that a dozens pages ago but i think it worth to repost it in this context

Jeez. Look where the dam is on their map and where it is on the blueprint map. They have just ripped off xrCore's map.

It doesn't have a northern river either.

Kiwi's map is also way way better than this.
And it is exactly the same as the black and white map posted yesterday here so that's kinda odd...

Anyway, back to business as usual.
I'm reworking my map at the moment. Putting buildings where they should be.
I'll have to "extreme makeover" the countryside part so that it links properly with the city.

'Aint braggin' if you back it up, and you tend to do so. Look forward to the reworked version Monsieur.

CVG had a decent go but you could tell they rushed it.

Their map does look too small. LS takes up just under a half of it. It probably extends much further north but we haven't seen past Mt Alamo yet.

It's an edited version of his map. For every feature on it that they corrected, they changed already correct aspects to new mistakes.

Either through inside info, or by looking at ideas in here, CVG have assumed the large building east of Los Santos, below the dam, by the freeway is a casino.

Forgive me if this is repeating someone else, but I found the PALA CASINO (link to arial map) is a very similar shape.

Your map doesn't suck... neither does theirs. Also they didn't use yours.

Sure they took inspiration for it, and like they said they've looked at this thread and gotten some help for it, but they don't just copy things. Just look at it and it's easy to see it's not a straight copy.
The edge of the maps doesn't match, and neither does the Alamo Sea layout, and more!

Sure they might have looked at some of the countryside roads you drew and followed or drew very similarly to those, but i doubt they copied anything, also why would it matter? There's simply not enough screens/video from up out in the countryside to map it very good, and at the end of the day we'll have the game and the official map.

This thread is fun but it's definitely not necessary, and i don't think people should be taking it all too seriously. smile.gif

They photoshopped it. xrCore should get full credit for their map.

Stop the copyright war. They've credited this thread many times and they said they could add anyone who think is not credited to the final credits. It's just the first theirs version, i think they even should give it 0.1 number rather than 1.0. What is untrue i think that is theirs map "is the most accurate available over the internet". The maps released in this thread are the product of community work, even xrCore's one. Yeah, some guys contributed more, someone less, but the key is community. When the credits on the first page updated last time, Fido?. It would be pretty hard to credit to anyone who contributed here smile.gif Six hundred pages without a one! It is just fun, so let's just keep up good work guys! icon14.gif Less annoyance, more fun! colgate.gif

Interesting map...

Slightly OT but I've figured something out re: airports. There has to be a regional airport some distance from LS. A large-scale one, not a small airstrip. This will explain a bit more purpose of being able to fly massive planes.

This would also eliminate the need for another city.

Adding some simple easy things that should be in it. Not sure if I'll be able to upload it. Its the "full size"
One I'm working on. And I'm adding "font" to it and naming a few things.....

Could anyone tell where is actually par 5 on the golf course in the Michael trailer, i think that place is on the north side of the course and therefore they're wrong saying the Michaels house is in the background up the hill, it is rather down the hill to the southeast, behind the sierra tower. And should be to the north or northeast of par 9 which is more to the south of par 5. Or i'm wrong?

@ChillyPhilly, could be. But in all GTAs massive planes just flying around biggrin.gif without any need of second airport. Even in San Andreas they was slowed down to fit the world (or not?). And plains in the missions usually was heading off the map. So we just should believe, KIFFLOM!

Hole 5 and hole 9 you mean? Par is the number of swings each hole should take to get the ball in the hole, so there can't be a par 9!
