You could see a bit from (what people think is) the Military Base in one of the trailers. wink.gif I'll try to find that screen.

Small update :
user posted image

Added a bunch of new building around Beverly Hills, Vinewood and just south of Downtown.
Beverly Hills : Two Rodeo, 9595 Wilshire Boulevard, Barney's Restaurant, Wilshire Theatre, Flynt Productions
Vinewood : The Viper Room, Sunset Plaza, Guiness World Record Museum
Downtown : Pacific Financial Center
South Downtown : LAC+USC Medical Center, LAC Parking Garage, 1145 North Mission Road (the LA Coroner should be near this one but I can't include it yet)
Industrial : Cereal Food Processors

I changed the color of the green to mark the difference with the desert.
I still need to adjust the limits between desert and plains.
Adjusted the shape of the map to bring it closer to the shape seen in the Paleto Heist board in the Gameplay Trailer.

Areas we haven't seen yet include :
- the west coast (Paleto to Los Santos) except Bixby Bridge and the mouth of the Alamo river
- the entire east coast except the lighthouse
- the southern end of Los Santos (docks)
- the Military Base, likely located along the zancudo river
- The northern end of the Land Act Reservoir


For those asking, Union station still hasn't been seen. I find it weird too cause it's a very iconic building in LA.

Cuz the paleto heist includes the military gear and the screens from the billboard show us the target is located in this aera.

When you need example pics go back the last 50 pages on one of them you will find it. Every asking for things like this let grow up this thread up to 1500 sites befor we reach 17.9....

Can someone else tell me? This guy doesn't even make sense. He's talking about paleto, then a heist, then a billboard, and finally a target, all whilst mentioning some military gear.

The question was... How do we know that the military base is located where the river meets the ocean?

Union Station should be somewhere around the Northeastern part of Los Santos. I'm only saying this because that's where its located in Los Angeles.

It was stated in the previews that saw Franklin dive out of a plane, that the military base was on the west coast, near the river valley.

Nice. I was thinking a big time about this building/area but i was to dumb to combine this spot.

http://i.imgur.com/nva2Vp0.jpg?1

It fit to the minimap. Remember the parachute scene N was market right and not exactly N. And here the angel is diffrent so N could be fit.
And the shed will also fit from angel and positiion.

There's definitely a lot of trees in that area though as seen here: http://media.gtanet....eenshot_285.jpg
If you look even further west (or far right in the picture), the path of trees continues.

~Page 770.

"The Paleto heist" Its a mission planed in the trailer. There you can see a map and the missiondetails on a billboard/whiteboard/flipchart/wall. There you can find also the checkpoints about the mission. 1 scout town 2 test security 3 time cop responce 4 pick crew 5 get military gear.
Point 1-4 are checked. Point 5 is open and the pictures on the wall and the marked map shows how to get the gear from a base located there. In the postet thread from page ~770 you also can see the shape of the supposed base.

I just finished the latest revised map. Surely, things are not correct, but I updated Paleto's location, added some light green for farmland or vineyards, and stuck in Brunswick Pass (which is the unofficial name that some think they see on a road sign). It is kind of crammed in the NE corner at the moment. Enjoy the latest map, version 2.1. View full size here. Map 2.0 here.

I do like this map. I think it is cool they aren't following everyone else's thoughts. I think the map also extends East a bit after the hotel area. That way it could extend the desert region more and allow for some more of those towns we saw in screenshots.

http://i.imgur.com/acG6mnM.jpg

I was going to post something about this. I completely agree.
I also think more of the NW has already been seen, than most people realize.
Basically, I think the NW to NE goes something like this;

NW Zancudo (Josiah) mountain
Bixby Bridge
West side of 2 small mountains west of Alamo (Chilliad), with the drain pipe.
Unknown patch, but has a peninsula with 5 trees at the end
Red factory
Paleto
Farms on NE side of Paleto
Beachside highway, 100-200 ft. (inexact est.) up there is the Hikers image
Up n Atom burger with small town

Most of this is pretty accurate, hikers shot only being possible.

Thanks. I wanted to extend the desert are outward to the east, but I have no proof of that. It appears also the desert doesn't reach to the water on either side. It is more or less semi arid scrublands. So far from what I have seen, all areas by ocean are forested and lush.

I'm really surprised they they named it Route 68 and not Route 69. Thought I bet they chose 68 just because they'd expect everyone to think they'd choose 69. Blah!

It goes east to west, they're following how routes are named. Even numbered routes predominately go east/west, odd numbered go north/south.

None of the previews could get the detail right xD Some said it was a military C-130 style plane, another a commercial jet, another a small Cessna-type, another a military helicopter (I think even a fighter jet was mentioned at one point!), so, whatever Frankie dove out of.
