Anyone have any more thoughts on my post here, I think it got lost in the deluge of posts back when I originally made it?

Here's a better look at some of those trees:

http://www.rockstarg...ot/743/1280.jpg

Personally I think the hikers are on the NE of the Alamo mountain looking up at the peak, I can't really see anything else working.

I have to agree Elvis, that is Chiliad (Alamo) looking up towards the peak. My guess would be the west side looking east.

Also to all the naysayers "This map is smaller than SA, blah blah balh" I will no longer respond to you, retardation runs thick on this forum as it is and this is a mapping thread not a bitch about the map size. This map is going to be huge Rockstar has said it themselves, I see it myself, people with brains understand just how big it will be. Get over it.

It's hard to tell which mountain will be Mt. Chiliad - we haven't seen a proper screen with all the mountains on it - it should be the highest peak though, as Rockstar confirmed!

From my understanding of many gaming magazine articles Mt. Alamo is Chiliad. The demo they were shown had everything we have seen and they called the big mountain Chiliad. It makes sense as I believe it is the biggest mountain on the map and it shows.

The mountain shown in the gameplay video is definitely NOT the biggest mountain of Los Santos & Blaine County - if it would be the biggest mountain it'd be a real disappointment, at least for me!

I don't really see how it's disputable at this point other than 'I don't want it to be!'

It's the same mountain as this but viewed from above.

US Bank tower is taller in V. You cannot say the distances between LS and Chiliad are equal in both games, that is BS.

EDIT: @Emmi

It is the biggest mountain, 'unfortunately'. BTW that mountain is huge.

Hey - anybody else notice that there is a 2nd vehicle the same as Trevor's in the shot.

Look between the two police vehicles to the middle right - there is Trevor's car again.
Does this mean that this vehicle is not exclusive to Trevor?

Is the "Paleto" an official name of that small town on North or it was named by some of you here?

This is Mt. Josiah.

It's very tall but Chiliad is taller.

No, I just though it was accepted in this topic that buildings in the III era are not scaled accurately, whereas the ones in the HD era are.

There's no proof that the Bank Tower in V is higher, lower, or the same size as the one in SA.

If you would have experience in photography, you would know, that your picture comparison ( http://i.imgur.com/0LLP0vK.jpg )is more than silly, and very innacurate...
We cannot judge, how distant the mountain really is, because we do not know in wich condition the bank building shot was taken...

Just watch this, and you will know, how different the percepition of distance can be:

has anyone looked at what location Franklin is in the gameplay trailer at 1.11? Im talking the shot with the 'welcome to Los Santos' wall. It seems south of the freeway but I can't recognise the location on the map

I don't believe that the map is bigger than SA, RDR and GTA IV combined..
I think rockstar fooled us.. The maps here are so small .. Smaller than SA
There is only one major city 3-4 big mountains and a big sea wow.. So theres no way that this map is big.. I think it will be a little bit smaller than SA.. But with the underwater world it will be bigger.. I also think that rockstar added too many enormous mountains..
But yeah I'm really disappointed with the size and the shape of the map..

No

Sorry, but I'm with him. The fanmade maps seem to be pretty accurate. And they indeed look pretty small. We already know the northern end of the map. I am not bitching or trolling, but I'm really disappointed about the map so far. I just can not imagine how the landmass can be as big as R* told us. I think they overestimated the mapsize themselves. They always show us the Alamo Sea or hills around Alamo Sea from different angles. And I am really afraid that the map will not be bigger than that. LS, Alamo Sea and some big Mountains around it which will fill most of map-space. I hope I'm wrong but.... since we know the map ends just north of Alamo Sea... well... I just expected more for the biggest and most ambitious game R* ever created. They just promised sooooo much...!

SA had tons of farms ... forests, vegetation, desert, rivers, diversity, tons of small towns and settlements... not as beautiful as current gen but awesome for 2005... GTA V has shown us desert, a huge sea, 3 towns, a vineyard and some very huge mountains,... no forests, no other towns, no greenery, no vegetation, no places faaaar away from Alamo Sea or LS, no other lakes or rivers confused.gif ... yes it will have more features than all other GTA-games, but I am very disappointed with the map so far. Don't need other cities! But it seems to be just... small and not diverse. Everything seems to happen around LS, Zancudo River and Alamo Sea. I just hope R* is hiding tons of the map.

Yes. Customization, Gameplay, Activities, Story, Weapons... R* puts tons of energy in this game, but... Well... I personally just don't like the map so far. confused.gif

Give me a break

Fido I think that you put the town of Paleto too far to the west. There is a picture out there where you can see the green houses on the eastern shore of Lake Alamo in the same frame as the city while the peak of Mount Alamo sits between them.

The people that complain about the map size need to turn their computers off and go outside. The map of the real world is literally f*cking massive! Go explore that.
