Again, I made another comparison with my model to an existing screenshot.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Some of the mountains could use tweaking in height, (the one outlined in lime green), but for the most part, it's spot on.



Hi WolfbackGames. You may have seen a number of pages back that I started modelling the buildings in LS. If you'd like, I can send you my .blend file and you can transfer them over into your map? Save you a bit of time maybe.

I think you've wrongly connected different mountains with one pink line in the screenshot. I've had the same error, check out here http://www.gtaforums...st&p=1062649580
So you've marked the mountain adjacent to the Salvation Mountain ('H' in GTAKiwi's), mountain 'F' in GTAKiwi's notation and maybe some mountain between H and L-E we maybe haven't seen yet.
EDIT: Your purple line is just an X hill//mountain and not the whole northeast descent of Zancudo. And I very doubt about your yellow line. This screenshot is a really hard task smile.gif
EDIT2: And your green marking is totally wrong, that hills are really very low. You can see all of that by my link above.

Yeah, I've had some trouble with mapping this screenshot. In most other angles, the mountains work and line up. I have a feeling there is another mountain located somewhere in there which we haven't got a good enough view of yet, hence not knowing it's exact existence other than this screenshot.

Yep, maybe I'm wrong about Y in the runway panorama and this is really not Y

Hey Taco, GTFO.

Your map sucks and we're all tired of your stupid bullsh*t.

If the game is the size of IV, SA and RDR, Los Santos will be AT LEAST as big as LC. You're such an idiot...

W. Sunset Blvd., as I mentioned earlier is probably the first road you'll see coming in to Los Santos from the Pacific Coast Highway equivalent in this image user posted image. Like the real W. Sunset it probably curves up then straight down, eventually being the larger road that's just north of the golf course, runs by the Sunset Tower Hotel and bends into Vinewood, until it likely ends at the Los Santos river. Someone who actually has editing tools could probably note the road better.

Is this the road you mean ? Sorry about the bad highlight job, I used imgur's photo editor as I didn't feel like launching PS.

That's great! I didn't catch all that when watching the trailers. Does anyone know what that is to the left of the image? Is it a small airport where the cropduster takes off from, or could it be part of a military base? Also, it looks like the fields on the right are the ones from the first trailer. I haven't seen anyone mention where it was located yet (that I can recall).

Think I figured out the mountains in the bridge comparison I did, so I decided to redo it with a new mountain range added.

It's really hard to match up the cameras due to FOV differences, and general placement issues. For the most part, you should be able to see the similarities.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

I've been away for a while, so I'm not sure, but I don't think these have been posted. Here are some panoramas from action scenes in the trailers, I don't know if they'll help with anything, but they won't hurt.
These Images appear to be mostly seamless, but since they were automatically stitched, some errors and blurring might be present. Enjoy

Thanks, I really just went over the trailers, marked the times of the scenes with lots of camera panning, ran them through ICE, and here we are. the foreground objects often repeat, but the backgrounds seem to be properly connected, and that's what I wanted.

That's supposed to be a military base but it is the only evidence of it and we have no any other proof.

The Zancudo river looks like it's heading into a wetlands area with the little shallow pools alongside the river in the Trevor trailer.


@WolfbackGames, it's better now, but I think you're wrong about the green line again. Look at my enhanced picture more carefully. Here is how I see it:

Yeah that's what I believe to be W. Eclipse Blvd. (W. Sunset Blvd. IRL).

I believe this screenshot:

Is the back of the mountain that we see around the Alamo sea.

So we can confirm the rocky like mountain is the other side of Mt. Alamo.

Also, after seeing the Cuban panorama, I think I get why Wolf and Fido have their placement of Alamo and Zancudo the way they do.
