I hate to beat a dead horse, but I want to bring this up again-

I played with the settings of the screenshot with the customized muscle car on the freeway and managed to slightly make the freeway signs in the background less blurry.  If anything, I hope this at least disproves the myth of these signs saying "Las Venturas."

Maybe it's just me but the word in the right hand sign could begin with Grape.

Then it's probably.... Grapeseed.

I don't know If anyone mentioned, but in terms of San Andreas and GTA V, the small towns are a bit like:

Grapeseed = Blueberry
Paleto = Bayside
Sandy Shores = Las Barrancas

I imagine the white building is a bar. Trevor and this dude were drinking. Dude said something "funny" but Trevor no laugh. Trevor drag a dude out back.


Longtime lurker and absolutely amazed by the progress that has been made here. But has anyone noticed those radar-like dishes (similar looking to the ones that have been mapped for a long time) to the right of that church-like building outlined in green? Those must be connected to that facility that is seen in the airplane screenshot over the Alamo sea.

Sorry if this has been covered before... I've read most, but not quite all 895 pages

Now I know this suggestion is going to get shot down by most people because of the implications of it meaning theres
another town or settlement to the northeast, but I can not match the top image with the mountain to the west of the Alamo sea

Bottom pic looks like Chiliad to me. I think the top is Josiah.

The bottom pic is taken on the coast bridge crossing the Alamo River looking north toward Paleto. That is Chilliad(Alamo) in the background.

That mess isn't even accurate. lol.gif Los Santos is just a little smaller than all of the LC islands squashed together. It's not that small. Let me guess, he thinks the size of LS blocks and LC blocks are the same. Not true. Los Angeles has wider blocks and the streets are very wide. This map is inaccurate.

not really, he is just wearing a vest, and the vest model is sticking to his shirt underneath so it looks kinda strange.

I know the bottom picture is what most people are calling Chiliad (but I dont think it is the actual Chiliad)
I just think both pictures are of the same mountain from opposite directions.

Sorry for the graffiti on your map Fido.

I think the top pic's taken from somewhere in the red square.

And the bottom in blue.

Yes I can see where it would match from the west shore of the Alamo sea, but I can't seem to
match any other picture of the Zancudo mountain with that picture confused.gif

It isn't the same mount but two different mounts you can see on the image below :
The mount of thefallguy's first image is the left one below (josiah Mount ?)
And the second (seen from southeast) is the right one (mount Chilliad(?), seen from west)

And these are the images of the valley between both images from alamo sea (east) to ocean (west).
Right column : images look to west
Left column : images look to east

Sorry these are so big, I dont know how to make them smaller on here.

The top and bottom pictures look like the same mountain,
the middle picture (taken geographically between the other two, but closer)
looks like the mountain has deflated lol, just doesn't look the same mountain.

Once again, I'm not sure if this has been discussed or identified yet.
At 2:58 in the gameplay trailer when Franklin walks along Route 68, you can see structure up on the hill.
It is quite large & has what looks like a domed roof on one section, similar to the observatory.
There also seems to be a light coloured road leading up to or past the building.
I've marked the approximate location on Fido's map. Not 100% sure if it's right but I think it's close.
Does anybody know if there is a similar type of building behind the Vinewood Hills area in real life?
