Dunno if it's just me, but i've never seen this screen or at least never in this quality. Sorry if it has already been posted smile.gif

We've proven it's fake here http://www.gtaforums...entry1062703296

That picture isn't fake confused.gif

This pic is just.. awful. mercie_blink.gif

Hope you are being sarcastic/joking around otherwise you are blind.

Can't you see that the picture's been altered? sarcasm.gif

That doesn't make it ugly now, does it? sarcasm.gif

Either i got the wrong definition and he meant the alteration, or he means the graphical quality looks awful, which is absurd.

This screen isn't fake!!! It was used for the Special Edition and Collector's Edition!!!

^^ The bottom part looks ugly because it does not reflects what it must to, look at the officially released shot with this dam. The top right corner looks ugly because of light yellow stain like somebody pissed on it. And the left wing of the plane (to the right in the pic) was extended wrongly so now it is longer the right one. So the original shot is nice but this edited one is garbage even if it's not evident at first glance.

Edit:
@MrAwesome178 If you would be so courteous to click on the link in my post you'll see nobody stated the whole shot is fake, it is just re-made of that shot extended with the fake parts? Lets end this stupid dispute.
Why people are so lazy even to click the link?
OK, if so many of lazy people here so I'll repost it, here you go:

Yep, you're right, in the right bottom that was just diagonally cropped one from the promo image. Then the corner was stretched with photo editor software. So the most full screen of that scene we have at the moment is the one from the R* Warehouse. This edited one have even less of truth than any single cropped picture from either SE promo flier image or CE promo image:

About the Trevor jump screen. Do not see any islands there. Even when it is edited with different graphics filters I see only the over-lit area hiding the part of ocean, where possibly could be some islands, but it is speculative, we have no any other evidence of them:

I think an extra landmass in the ocean must be that dark colored the main land is, maybe slightly lighter but no very.

EDIT:

@The Leprechaun, I do not think the huge mountain to the right in the night shot could be Vinewood hill, they should have absolutely different shapes from all views.
Here is my old bet about the view in the screen with Michael:

Edit: there are two bodies, the third part is just a fragment.

@zombie elvis, if you're right about facing east, then I was wrong about  the plane circling the runway and Satellite Dishes must be to the right in she screens above and so hidden by the boulders I marked in light green in the night shot above ( palm trees and billboard marked by GourangaMaster ):


Good to have them all in the same post.
Yeah it had made me wonder previously with trevor on the plane turning round at the east end and then getting off as it approached the same place. I couldn't rule it out but it seemed like a strange sequence of events.

If I'm right the triangular mountain to the right must be the eastern pointy mountain, I can't remember all the names for them now. it looks not far off what we can see from the lakeside bridge picture.
user posted image

There's a picture of Trevor in a motorbike chase in the desert with the very same hills behind him, the sun is coming from the right, so south-ish direction makes sense for it looking East.

Also even though I have lost what I thought was a view of the Vinewood hills from the other side, this one I'm 100% sure of:

Depends what you count as a mountain. I'd say 1 huge one, 1 very large ones and some smaller ones but I'm not sure how many.



I think someone may have pointed this out already? I still don't know what these things are but it could be a match:

I don't know to be honest, I'm not sure the 'Flat' one appears in any of the pictures outside of the Vinewood one, pointy is the only one I'm sure of, the small flat bit next to it could be hidden behind it from Vinewood side.

@omawnakw
Actually, I was saying those mountain in the Michael-gi pic are the smaller ones just north of the airstrip or even Alamo's range. I don't feel really confident about it, just that it is the only place I'd felt comfortable with the red cuban shot. That shot is extremely hard to place, but it kind of works there.

From ground level Los Santos looks absolutely massive. Now if only that shot faced South to confirm if there's something there or not.

Not draw distance, but it may be smaller because it's further away, you can see a lower distant hill in orange between the nearby ridges in my Motel pic.
But it does make me wonder exactly which hills we're looking at on from the lakeside bridge..


This picture seems to show the same big hill behind the runway too:

I think that's what you marked as G on your Vinewood picture, from the other views, smaller unmarked hills will fill the gap which should look much wider from side-on.

The road in front of The Westin Bonaventure Hotel looks like a freeway... Do you think all those "small" roads on you're map are at least 4 lanes wide?

To be honest, I didn't think that far.
The "small" roads on my map are 2 and 4 lanes wide I think.
I just wanted to to show the difference between those big freeways and the smaller roads.
