The Redondo Beach sign is a good fit location-wise. I'll agree the San Diego sign is a better fit design-wise, but seeing as we've got a pretty idea of what the map looks like by now and that the parts of the official map that we've seen don't allow for a San Diego south of Los Santos, I'd say the sign refers to the Redondo one. I imagine they either used the San Diego design because it looked better or they wanted to mess with us.

'greed

Don't see the point in revealing it now, when we only have to wait 2 more months

spot on.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before but this looks like the location of where he is and therefore the same of the lake/sea.

I could be wrong but I don't think those maps actually work... The map shows the Alamo sea but I'm think he's on the east coast of the island with the power station (where all the power lines will come from) in the background.

Is he not just at the top-right corner of the Alamo?
I thought it was already established to line up pretty well with the wide overhead shot of the crop duster plane?

There's a better quality of the pic here.

I think it's from the mountain to the east of Alamo, which choco taco marked in red here:

just registered here, im a long time browser and this is my first time post.

Firstly i'd like to say great work from everyone in here concerning the maps been updated, etc has me checking back everyday.

My question is have R* confirmed that the game will be on 1 island only? they are not giving much info on the eastern side of the map, could there be another island(or just wishful thinking on my part) GTA games usually have the citys/city broken down over several islands so it will be a first for them to have the whole map on 1 island.

There will be only one main island. The whole world will be open from the start.

Thoughts?

I think it's like this:

Yeah i was kind of thinking that was most likely it but hoped maybe the angle of the lighthouse shot makes the peak seem more pointed than the one in the motorbike screen. That and I would have been happier if it was the distant mountain as that would mean the coastline wasnt so close. More and more I see pretty much the border of the entire map except the western side and portions of the east. Its kind of dissapointing how much the map is spoilt for me now.

It's on the Alamo Sea. I'm pretty sure it was linked to the settlement in this picture.

What about the south side of the map? Just the airport and the docks? Nothing big hidden there?

IMO that's it's a seperate one that's west of the Sandy Shores motel. I don't really care though tounge.gif


In the preorder pic it shows the motel and store behind Trevor with the camera aiming east.

The southern part where it's cut off on the blue print is probably just the docks.

I reckon there is more to the south and north of los santos, both the north and the south have ben cut off from the blueprint and in a few screenshot there shows more to the north of los santos.

Has anyone figured what this sign says:

user posted image

The top one is something along the lines of
Br?????k Pass

It might be Brunswick Pass, or Brasswork Pass.

The bottom one is a bit more difficult to see, but I think it's something like
????? Bay

At first glance Bay looks more like Sky, but that would make no sense. The first letter could be a P.

What do you think?

Paleto Bay?

Edit: Oops, was already said by someone else on an earlier post, sorry.

Brunswick Pass is most likely based off the Grapevine pass which takes you from Los Angeles through the mountains into the San Joaquin Valley, where Bakersfield and Fresno are.

Has anybody been able to identify a movie studio from any of the screenshots? I'm looking all over and I can't find one. Perhaps it is up in the NE part of the city by the race track, that area hasn't been viewed at all in any media as far as I know.

The majority of the movie studios, save for Sony and Paramount are actually in the valley, we haven't seen any signs of the valley either, late reveal? Or not in the game. We shall see.

to me it looks like it says "Br....... Pkwy"

(Pkwy = Parkway)

Emmi, I am starting to believe that screencap #1 doesn't exist anymore, either that or rockstar hasn't shown us it since the first trailer.
