Who knows, they might just show a portion of the map in their gameplay.

Off topic: I just had a dream about V, and it was amazing. A bunch of the people on these forums were invited to another hands-on demo, and we were slowly revealing the landscape. All of a sudden, bamm, Las Venturas. People were all excited and mad at the same time, knowing that we would get flamed by the another-city conspiracy believers. The imaginairy game looked amazing, though.. inlove.gif

was I one of them? smile.gif smile.gif

This reminds me of the "stain on the wall is a map" thing again. Do people still think that there is a map somewhere in the trailers? Give up god damnit!!

I get that being rude, obnoxious, and belittling is the fad on this forum, but try not being such a condescending prick. I'm not sure if being an asshole makes your dick hard, but f*ck off with the hostile attitude towards people who speculate. Some people have social lives and jobs which prevent us from staying on this website every day in order to go through every frame of every trailer.

I am tired of this sh*t aswell. Full of tontos graves.

"A tonto grave is usually a circumspect and serious person unlikely to understand or to accept humour and easily inclined to spoil fun.

If you would suggest to have a night out and propose 'let's have fun and paint the city red', he is likely to remark 'but educated people don't do this kind of things' and refrain from joining the party."

I would personally love to see character switching in the gameplay, because they said that there is a sort of google eart style zoom from one character to the other --> google earth style zoom OUT means seeing a big part of the map, when the other character (For instance Trevor) is on the other side of the map

It's hard not to be condescending around here when most of the posters are so goddamn stupid. That's all.

This would actually remind me of Skyrim's style a bit, but maybe less on the hour as a skyrim was (best weather satellite in game though). Honestly, I am hoping for Franklin's skydive, as that will probably help here more than a lot of other things (other than a look at the map).

As a newer poster, having a new version of the thread with a lot of updated material (including basic discussed issues, might alleviate this problem, as a 700+ thread is quite intimidating). There is a an attitude of, 'it's been decided', here or there, and for newer posters who have other interests, but still want to be part of the discussion, sometimes making an effort is not an unkindness. It took a lot to convince me that Alamo was behind Vinewood Sign, but someone made an effort to teach me (it makes for a more peaceful thread to actually have it updated 100 or so pages, thank you omawnakw and Zombie Elvis). Most things have been discovered that can be, but there is a few things worth discussing with what we haven't, tomorrow may change somethings, but I think page one is a good place to start and don't be afraid to ask people for advice or data.

Is it confirmed there is something behind the northern mountains? Perhaps rockstar haven't shown us anything because there is nothing there....

Could it be??

I belive there is two big lakes in this game! I don`t know how to put pictures in my post, but from the newest lake picture, and the lake picture from the "Sunsets, seas, skies and so on" batch, it looks like two different lakes.

What someone needs to do, or even I may do it myself, is piece all the minimap together from throughout the gameplay to get full new parts of the map we haven't seen yet.

If any will be shown, I think they could disable the HUD easily if they do not want to reveal the map.
If that's not the case, yes, we will have some portions in detail.

There were some stunning wide view shots in the gameplay trailer. Can't wait for this thread to get moving again.

So the mountain shot confirms that there is a decent sized town tucked behind Mt Chiliad, followed by ocean.

Could the tall mountain (top left) be the same mountain we see that huge aerial shot of? With Bay City next to it? Perhaps this is driving along the coast on the western part of the map heading north. Just my two cents.

Yes it is, and the bridge with all the cars is the 2nd bridge in the train bridge screenshots overlooking the valley
