Is there any semblance of the San Fernando valley be represented in the game? NoHo, Burbank, Glendale? I no it's a lot of suburban territory but it's also one of the most striking features of L.A. since an entire mountain separates it from the rest of the city. For many it might not be a big deal, I'm biased - I live there.

@Fido
Do you think there might be a national park in GTAV, with bears, lots of trees, camping areas, huts, etc. ?

Well, IIRC, camping areas along with hikers were mentionned way back in 2012.
I have no doubt there will be at least one big dense forest area because it would make absolutely no sense to not have one.
Then, about a real National Park with park rangers, signs and stuff, I'm not so sure...
But it would be awesome^^

From what we've seen, it's not likely the valley will be featured. At least not like how it's in real LA, behind the mountains. Then again, we haven't seen the full map, so it's only a guess.

Fido,

Do you think it's plausible that the desert extends further to the east?

One reason I'm lead to believe this is the following screenshot -

The desert should be north east of LS and based on the Mohave desert but even though GTA V's SA is "Southern California inspired" it doesn't of course mean it's going to be exactly set up like it is in reality.

As I said awhile ago, if there's a forest it's likely based off the San Gorgonio Wilderness in San Bernardino.

Where would you pinpoint the screenshot I posted then?

Around Sandy Shores?

I think that screenshot is either east of the antennas, or more to the west, north of the Vinewood Sign on my map.
It's hard to see really but I think it's more to the west.

See that mountain to the left of Trevor's head? It's pretty big.

Everyone! Copy this map so you have it! It could be REAL and if it is Rockstar could delete it fast as possible. tounge.gif

I've taken a few obscure clues for ideas on how it looks, like the two little islands in the top left, I think they can be seen on the rolled up blueprint outside where the city was photoshopped on top of it.

Thanks guys, I may update if there's any new info but I think I'll be retiring from mapping for a while.

The mountains here are identical to what we see in the background when Trevor is at the desert Airport (Trailer 2 and Trevor Trailer)

So this could be near the east end of the runway, or somewhere in that direction anyway.

Paleto's position needs to be corrected on the maps of the first post. Its correct position is more to the west, than the maps of the first post show it.

If you want to compare what i am saying, check the following scenes of the gameplay video again:

- Boat scene along the northwest bridge that leads to Paleto.
- Cops chasing scene across the northwest bridge that leads to Paleto.
- Parachuting scene, Paleto seen from above

You guys remember someone asking for the isle-like thing on the left side with the trees on it? Maybe 100 or 200 pages ago (?), i don't know .. but i am sure it got answered to him back then, that it's the left (southwest) part/side of Paleto (see parachuting scene). So this let me wonder why the maps still don't show Paleto on its correct place?

user posted image
(i am sure you know where the green circled things are in the other mentioned scenes, in short: you can see them more than once)

Continue across the northwest bridge in a straight line and you will hit Paleto sooner or later - well actually sooner than later.

It could just be the angle of the bridge is wrong by a few degrees, at least in the case of my map.

@Fido thanks for all the work you've made since november 2011, specially for these new images and the last updates of your map.

Rodeo Drive

The GTAV store is a kind of miror of the real one.

Nice work koeklin.

Not sure if it's been mentioned here but I looked on igta forum and saw that the Route 68 motel sign is based on the Glancy motel on Route 66 in... Oklahoma?!

It doesn't look like it, unless it's tucked behind the mountains in the far west, the SW quadrant. With the seedy underbelly, mass-produced porn, TV, and movie industry, all sitting quietly alongside family homes and micro-industry business fronts, it would be perfect for GTA.

I think I found a match for one of the parts of the map. I think this part is based off the Yosemite Valley in California.
