Plus, it seems Chocotaco is implying that Mt Chiliad is the same height in both games here. Some of his comparisons are decent, but this makes no sense at all.

I never said it was the same height and distance away.

ah ok... so what did you want us to show with your picture comparison??? http://i.imgur.com/0LLP0vK.jpg

Yeah I don't get it either confused.gif

I said it's for comparison purposes.

compare - to examine (two or more objects, ideas, people, etc.) in order to note similarities and differences

I think we might have SF and LV , just look how tiny GTA V map will be.

The map is not remotely small. It is already bigger than GTA SA.

And SF and LF are not going to be featured in this game. Rockstar has plainly stated this game is a re-imagining of San Andreas with only Los Santos and the country side with various towns.

well, my opinion is, that Mt Chiliad (or Mt. Josiah, or however it is called) is much bigger than the one of SA... due to the fact that the one in SA is near, it seems to have the same size as the one of V, which in reality is more distant and more bigger...

just look at the gamplay scene, where you can see the top of the mountain, and far down you see Paleto... look at the crop field in the lower part, and than compare with the screen of the Cuban 800, and the police chase... it is the same field... and you will get the feeling how massive the mountain is...

Ok, have found the comparison now a few pages back:

I think it's just to show that larger draw distances can make things seem not so far away. Chilliad is quite a distance from the old LS bank tower, but just looking at it from that view makes it seem quite close. So looking at the new Chilliad, already looking a lot further away, imagine the actual distance when making your way there.
Screenshots often seem to make us underestimate the the actual scale of everything, but when we finally have the freedom to wonder around the map for ourselves, that's when it'll truly feel much larger.

if that is the prison just north of the wind farm, it's in the way wrong place
@ 2:22 in the gameplay trailer they zoom out from michael house & go up & to the left to trevor.
in his chase you can clearly see the prison. Also it's a dessert area.

Michaels house is just north of the golfcourse, his front door faces south.
So if they zoom out & go north west to pop in on trevor by the prison.
the prison should be located in the green area at the end of the river on this map (which should be dessert)

nope... left is North and right is south...

his house is east of golfcourse and his door is facing west... so north is on your left

basically the camera is turned 90 counterclockwise

Anyone thinking that they're masking the map size with all of these mountains? Seems a lot of the map north of LS will be taken up by mountains which will probably be inaccessible except for a road or two going up them. In no way am I complaining, but it just seems that way. A big map with a sh*t ton of mountains.
edit: then again, I could apply that logic to LC and it's inaccessible buildings and skyscrapers.

I'll take my mountain jungle over the concrete jungle. I still think they are hiding something from us. Like 1/4 of the map or a large island or even the fact that all buildings are enterable.

Oh, trust me. I am in no way bitching. Nothing about this game has disappointed me, but look at this:

That GIANT ass section of the map is taken by one mountain with two roads and a shed. That's it. I would prefer something more like an oasis or some sh*t. Like I said, it seems like they're masking the size with these large mountains with one or two roads. But hey, this game is near perfect.

I bet they will have cliffs and a cave system somewhere. There is a train track going through another mountain, along with a forest, waterfall, dam, and reservoir in the other mountains.

They do look like the same set of buildings. However, oddly, in the first image the buildings appear to be pointing slightly away from the mountain and in the second they are pointing in.

All of this maps is size of 2x RDR. Rockstar said that whole island is 3,5x RDR. So where is other 1,5x RDR? It's interiors, or what? IMO this map is not "big and diverse". I mean, it's just desert, mountains and lake. In 2011 I thought it will be f*cking big map, and that big mountain is far far far away from Los Santos. Same with scene with "Rockstar Games presents". But it's just one minute from LS... Disappointment with map size.
