I think the above is perfectly correct, although you should ignore the sun as it has been added by R* for the purposes of this screen. The sun goes East-South-West across the sky, or just East-West straight overhead in summer.

Not true. In Los Angeles the sun rises in the northeast and sets in the northwest during the summer. Not exactly northwest but around 30 degrees north of west. But yes Rockstar probably manipulated the sun for the screenshots.

The game takes paces in a fictionalized version of California, in the northern hemisphere-- what you said would be true if the game was set in Australia.

Edit: just realized you said the sun rises/sets to the north in LA, which is completely false.

Actually, I'm completely right. Here's a visualization from google earth. You can try it yourself if you don't believe me.

And I didn't say to the north, I said 30 degrees north of west during senset (or 30 north of east for sunrise)

But yeah we're getting off topic

No way the Alamo Sea is SE of the map.
Unless the map is gigantic and expand way way north so as to make the Alamo Sea appear SE of the map.
That would make LS SW of the map, even more south than the Alamo Sea.
These CVC guys don't have a clue about anything.
They just like the exposure.

I think when CVG is talking about the southeast part of the map, they aren't being clueless, they are talking about a whole quadrant of the map. Which would make sense, with this user posted image screenshot if he is, at least, barely in the southeastern part of the map.

haha wrong dude, do yourself a favor and Google "azimuth angles"

I took lots of environmental controls classes in college, we spent weeks on this. You are incorrect.

Edit: I misunderstood what you were saying-- in the summer the sun rises/sets a bit north of due East/west, but never as far north as shown in the disputed screenshot showing the sun almost due north. My b homes.

How am I wrong? The sun does in fact set in the northwest during the summer, around 28-29 degrees north of west, in LA. Didn't you see the pic?

Look at the compass on the top right

^no, that is a road, just look at the GTAKiwi's, map, it was discussed many times, river is to the right of this view.

So after a bit of searching I found what you are talking about, but from what I am seeing it implies elements of Baldy are split between Chiliad (Alamo) and Josiah (Zancudo). In addition, as much as they could be switchbacks, to me, and I hope you see that length does matter here, they are way too short to be switchbacks to a ski lodge. I don't see how, even an unlikely, trailer carrying snow mobiles could climb that mountain. Also, as most, if not all, of the 'roads' in that area are brownish dirt roads, why would there be a gray switchback in that area and not on a major road and bridge? It's not logical. I admit that there is a possibility that I am wrong, but there is way too much wrong with that picture for it to be a paved road above dirt roads. As noted in those previous arguments Chiliad (Alamo) looks more like Baldy then Josiah (Zancudo). New ideas and perceptions have merit, just look at our growth in the understanding of Dinosaurs (from dragons, to standing up, to bird-like reptiles) or gravity.

basic out line released on 8 February 2008.... with website. thats 2 months and 20 days before IV release.

so in V terms we should get a website with a guild line map end of this month of at very beginning of next month.

my guess is the website is coming out VERY soon... 1. no news for ages... 2. inline with IV time scale

my guess is 1st or 2nd of july.

Cheers, if been wondering for ages!
I'm not really bothered about anymore screens or trailers, I just want to see the map!

I personally think the maps going to be much bigger than we think. I think The areas that we haven't seen such as the north west and south east will streach quite a bit, plus it would make alot of sense in that it would make it look a lot more like the shape of California.

Only problem - it wouldn't fit the blue print map that rockstar has shown us with the CE and SE pre-order flyers.

But the Blueprint could be double-sided... I asked them about it, and they couldn't answer it. So there might still be a big surprise left smile.gif

The map is only in the SE and CE version from GTA V. And in the description R* say┤s "The exclusive, additional 21,5"x26,75" map...". Why everybody is so cocksure that this blueprint shows the whole map and the whole size?

Then there is the thing that called hope. And the other thing, its bigger always better?

Nothing new: I think that a lot of people have already guessed this screenshot below is near Palisades Park in the north of Santa Monica. It's the same balustrade.

I don't think there's enough room really.

Even though the rolled up map picture has been manipulated, I trust it roughly represents the true width of the map.
