| Half of LS, 2 towns, a lake, and a few mountains... |
The Blueprint released is easily shows 70-80% of LS, claiming we have seen half is incorrect. That lake is not a mear lake it is the alamo sea, which is a very large body of water. As for the mountains yes they are a few but they are also enormous and take up large portions of the map. Anyone who has followed this thread closely and taken a look at fido or kiwi's map and the way it is all broken down would easily come to the conclusion we have seen at least 2/3 of the total land area. That is not being a pessimist, just being realistic and logical in ones expectations.
Ok my darlings, let me drop a little geography lesson on yall. Look, this is why I say I believe only "Half of LS" has been seen. http://s23.postimg.o...mpv4r/LS_LA.jpg
This is a map of LA County. Now I said before, Rockstar isn't specifically following a real life map of LA,
but I'm saying that in respect to landmarks being in their exact specific places.
Just like starting with Vice City, and all the GTA's that followed, Rockstar does try to come as close as it can to keeping regions and counties ,etc. as realistically as their real life counterparts.
Example, Vice City, You had South Beach and then over the Bridges were Downtown Miami...Very similar to how Miami is laid out in real life. As with GTA IV, All the sections (Broker, Dukes, Algonquin etc.),
They were laid out just the way the boroughs of New York are really laid out in real life. So keeping this in mind, take a look at the map.
Now I know LA, i studied enough of it. I've outlined the section of LA, or Los Santos, in red that I think we have seen in the previews and gameplay.
There You can see downtown LA is included along with Santa Monica, Along with the port (which i still think we haven't seen the rest of the port),
Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and a few of the ghettos which i suspect is in relation to Compton.
Do you people realize that the city of LA extends out way into the EAST? East LA is the biggest section of LA.... The areas that are in Purple and Blue... Thats ALL Los Angeles too...
Thats going out by Anaheim, Rancho Cucamonga, Pasadena, Pomona , Covina, All those places are detrimental to LA. How about going more down south... LBC???
Cmon Snoop would be pissed if GTA didn't put LBC in there. How about behind the Hollywood sign? Oh cmon now, I know you guys don't thing Rockstar is going to do the same thing they did in San Andreas?
just make it all country side behind the Hollywood Hills? Theres still city behind there too guys. I think you all forget how big and a spread out LA actually is...
LA is not a city like the ones people in the East are accustomed to. Its not like New York, all dense... LA is SPREAAADDD out. Now again focus on what i circled in Red on the map...
Now how much of LA is that actually... Probably just 1/4 to 1/3 of the city. Now of course i dont think Rockstar is going to include EVERY part of LA in Los Santos...
But what you guys see on the blueprint map, and what you guys have mapped out so far... I think Rockstar has you guys a bit fooled.
I'm not saying this is definite, but just something to think about while youre creating maps.
P.S. Let not forget about the Santa Catalina Islands either
