Casino would be great.

It looks like a big building - should it not have a road going to it or car park. Maybe these just don't show up on a blueprint style map.

I do like this map.  I think it is cool they aren't following everyone else's thoughts.

Yes, it's awesome that we're finally starting to see some maps with some variation instead of slavishly reproducing the one that will appear in the actual game. Score one for creative license!

On that note, can we start seeing some maps with jungles and volcanoes on them? I think that hunting jaguars or picking up hitchhikers and then ditching your car in a lava pool would be hella rad.

I definitely think we will see at least 1 casino in V.

With money playing such a major part in the game it makes sense.

ive always thought the same thing. itll be great to go save your game and then go to the casino and bet a million bucks on roulette or something. if you win then great if not then reload your saved game!lol

Ah, just like San Andreas. Betting on horses and reloading for an hour made it so that you never needed to worry about money again...

GTAV.net already made a map. Gtav.net/map

This thread has ended. We've got the Map just not the road layout.

The thread hasn't ended. There is no official map yet, until the official map releases the thread isn't dead. Even then it'd be good to keep this thread alive to mark down landmarks and collectibles and other things not seen on the ingame map.

Kudos to all the mappers, really really awesome job. one thing i've been thinking of though, is does the north west side of the map extend more than what is being represented in the fan maps? If you look to the very left of this photo, it almost seems like theres a little bit more land off to the side and also further "back" or north. Especially the little hump with 5 or 6 trees on it way in to the distance, further than Mt.Chiliad/Alamo which is esentially being shown as the 'top' or end of the map. what do you guys reckon?
user posted image

With this and upon re-watching the gameplay trailer on my tv (looks sooo much better than on my laptop), i think the hiking scene maaay be to the "left" or west of paleto (if youre looking at it from franklins parachuting perspective). as the camera turns for a front on view of franklin coming down the mountain you can juust see a bunch of trees and more mountains and peaks (which will be to franklins left or "your" right). I realise theres always more chance that i'm wrong than right, but any thoughts on that?

Map update time.

I've Been a bit busy with work and playing through The Last of Us and the Uncharted games
in my spare time, So I didn't have time to edit my map straight after the trailer came out.

This might be my last update. We pretty much have the whole map layout and know where most
places are now, so there isn't much point doing any more. Plus, I wanna save some places to
discover when I get my hands on the game.

When I had almost finished editing this map, I realized Paleto was to far to the right, but
I don't have time to correct it, So I've just uploaded it as is. But even with Paleto needing
to be more west, the map should still give you the basic layout of GTA V's map.

Is the same as this mountain here?

If so, I'm not seeing that cabin.
But what about this mountain?
user posted image
It can't be the same on. It's shaped differently, just look at the distance of the hikers and the mountain. And that vegitation, those trees.

I posted this a while ago.

I have a feeling(A speculative feeling) that mountain from the first trailer will be somewhere in the middle south eastern part of the map that we haven't really
seen much of yet. More forests anyone?

We haven't seen that mountain in any other video or screenshots yet afaik..

By the looks of it. Seems possible.

It's Tehachapi Pass Wind Farm, near Bakersfield. Look at the logos on the turbines. They look the same.

Sequoia National Park actually is Sierra Nevada's south end.

Not that far from Los Angeles. Southeast of San Gabriel Mountains, but of course they'll shorten them up.

So if Sequoia National Park is in the game, we can expect this.

i would bet you anything that we can bet on horse races. couldnt we already do this in san andreas? i figured it was a given as soon as i saw the horse track on the map.

Completed the rough shape thanks to adamcs' amazing map.

Here it is.

Full size.

Lots of work to do still. Hopefully by early September I can get something like this online with all the screenshot/video shot locations and information about each place. Speaking of which, does anyone know how to make maps like that? I have no idea where to find an api or anything.

You joined in 2011? Just back in the reply thing post the image in the IMG button. And signature, go to your control panel in your account, and there should be a signature thing there.

Well you know when The Drought of 2012 happened, I backed off the forums for a while. I've recently started posting on here around the time of the character trailers. Thanks for your help.

@kindled, im not even trying to be mean but is there a reason you post the same 20 pics every page? is that absolutely necessary? also, their is an edit button on the posts you make. you can use that to keep from double posting by just including what you wanna put in your next post in your last post.
