on the top of the mountain on the left is this little cube. you can also see it on the the mountain earlier... that means if you follow the road you will come to bay city or whatever you call it....
but i have a better question....



where is this??


Looks you can base jump from the square structure.

The mountain looks different to other mountains in previous shots.

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

BAY CITY EXISTS.

I'm not sure if that was Bay City, in the gameplay trailer at ~3:54 there's a map of what looks like that town with the name 'Paleto' (although this could be the name of a store)

Interesting side note: google translated Paleto, apparently means 'red neck' in Spanish.

@OUPS Yep, Mt. Aamo to the left, mt. Zancudo to the right.
Edit (or maybe northwest side of Zancudo range if to be correct)

^ so now we know what is to the north of mt. Alamo. Could be Bay City we saw in the screen with Trevor?
And I want to say that in this new video the map looks enormous!

It seems like this is beyond the rocks that the train goes through, interesting.

I found this quite interesting, seems Bay City Ave is a street that resembles Malibu? Another interesting fact is that it brings up a nearby marina. Have we even located the 'marina' yet?

Please do not quote the full image.

Hey guys, unlike everybody else who is grabbing screenshots of compressed youtube videos, I went straight to the source, and extracted each frame out for your viewing and mapping pleasure. These are the highest quality stills you can get, direct from the video container.


EDIT: The urls are the the original files, the embedded screnshots are large thumbnails for your convenience.

Thanks reddit39.

The overhead view shows the map rotated 90 degrees, which could be to better fit the whole thing on a 16:9 screen when zoomed out.

@reddit39 yep, thanks for the small ones. I've made the same for the 720p youtube source and now waiting while the official 1080p mp4 downloaded.

EDIT: @zombie elvis, so if it is Bay City maybe we could see the mansion from the screen posted by @Mnxanr above?

I stitched this together, it should help map this area as accurate as possible! Note the map on the left, the placement of water and land, should help those mappers get creative.

Cool, I'd not noticed that map on the left!


edit: I realise what the big bridge is now, I was a bit stupid there.

After watching the gameplay trailer, I'm even more convinced the blue print map doesn't show the small side streets.

Bay City Avenue was seen in trailer 2 when Franklin (?) drives a motorcycle out from the city.
Marina is near venice beach where the canals are, and btw can be seen when camera zooms out from Franklin after he buys his .. medicine.

Well, I believe this is the North-Western part of the map.
