QUOTE (MrKovac @ Wednesday, Jul 10 2013, 18:44)
Obviously there is another small town in the North-eastern part of the map.

Here´s why:

* The railway loop around the island. When starting from west going around, the train will stop at the unknown town in the gameplay trailer -
then moving on (I suppose) in the moutains prior to stopping at sandy shores and moving on at the east side stopping at the third town (or whatever you choose to call it) and then back again.

* Rockstar have said themselves, "Los santos and the cities surrounding it" or something like that. So it would make sense making a small town (like the one we´ve seen or smaller) in the eastern part of the map. Otherwise, the eastern part would just be mountains and water?!

Yes, and the highway go to the east. Why? For kidding us? I don't think the highway go north, then turning east for going directly to the city north of Mt. Alamo? That's ridiculous. So i think there will be 1/2 towns, desert or a small city/great town (greater then the other towns). The military base is also located to the east. It is also an option that there will be a train station and so...

If this is Northwest then... they why do we see the mountain that is to the NE so close to this shot?  That would mean the NW and NE are very pinched on the map and the Northern stretch of road would be very tiny.  Behind that mountain is the town of Paleto.  You can see the parachute diving shack on the top of the mountain too.  They are the same mountain.

The very large mountain with the 'box' on top (Alamo/Chiliad) is not NE, it is directly north of Los Santos (see US Bank screenshot).

I have seen the errors of my ways. Thank you for explaining that to me.

It's showing place names?  I never spotted that! Any others?

I think it's just those two, but we have a new sign that's probably located southwest of the town from the trailer.

It looks like it says:

'somethingsomething Park or Peak'
and
'Paleto Bay'

Paleto bay? LMAOOOOO!! Paleto in spanish means something like this:

Because that mountain is not NE but more N. So I think there will be more to the east of Alamo Sea

user posted image

This road is going to the northeast and we see signs so there will be more. To the North we have only Mt. Alamo, The Zancudo River and some cliffs, and in the west we will have Malibu and Grapeseed region.

The signs says B______ something Pass. It is probably the pass with the Rockship Cafe. Next is Paleto Bay is seems. I sure there is more towns then just that.... because I would think that scene was in a scrublands area near the prison if the scenes from before are related and connected. That would leave a ton of empty space with nothing but that town in the far NE.

The two or three first scenes in Trevor's chase sequence is around the prison area, but I assume this clip is only connected to the last scene where he is crossing the bridge. You can also see what looks like the shoreline on the radar so it should be somewhere along the coast.

/edit: I just noticed that the sun shines from opposite directions in the last two scenes, so that sequence is not directly linked either. The sign could also be located somewhere else, but I still think it's somewhere along the northwestern shore because of the pine trees and the shoreline on the left side of the sign.

Oh man, i would love snow in the game... but you can't really tell what that is... Probably just some reflection... OR maybe Rockstar hides the snow until the release and did a little mistake here?!

Btw, did anybody pinpoint where this was located? I first thought it was in the NW area of the map, but I'm not so certain anymore.

I dont think the second image is entirely correct. Im pretty certain that is the free way that comes in from the east side and runs along the eastern edge of the mountain. Its facing south in that picture, and we have also seen in the trailer with the sports car driving north along that road. Id say those 2 mountains you highlighted are the hills with the oil fields on them? Which is in the south eastern part of the city.

No it's right, the trailer does show a clip of the eastern freeway but then it jumps to a clip of the race later on in the area in the picture.

9.5 MB image! Converted from png to 100% jpg. Maybe LS is bigger than I expected haha. According to size of tennis courts (2 3 ,77x10,97m) blueprint map grid is more than 1x1 km. I can't believe it, but I got about 0,8x0,8 mile / 1,32x1,32 km...

Are you guys still into panoramas?

The backgrounds are stitched okay by the looks of it, but the foregrounds have some artifacts. We're not here for foregrounds though.

I took the photo of the base jumper (with the radar) and aligned it to the wide shot of the mountain and the town. Then I rotated it so that north is up. Unless I am mistaken this should be the proper orientation of the town.
