I think it's safe to say we'll get a small representation of downtown long beach with the queen mary boat docked down there based on this picture and map that was released

For what it's worth I think the buildings would be around here.

we're looking east across the bridge, the dock is in the middle, not next to the forum.

Ah you're right.

In that case it must be the two hotels near the airport?

^^I do think there's a high desert like Lancaster, where the LA County Prison is mocked-up, and a low desert, the Sandy Shores region. Elevation, I'm telling you - the map will seem enormous with all the elevation changes.

You should check out aerial images of Lancaster Prison, they have a really similar design. If you use Google Street View and travel the east side you can glimpse very similar prison towers.

As for the earlier bay argument here is what the Santa Monica Bay looks like:

Bays are surrounded by three sides of land, even if it's two short peninsulas. It doesn't need to be highly enclosed.

And as for the Chianski/Chinaski thing. It could be a mistake or intentional. This is about as conspiracy as I'll get, but it could be that legal injunction or accidental misspelling due to a poor web search (like my earlier one), could be responsible for the difference. Then again I am merely guessing at the only related element I have been able find to that mountain range.

It's a shrunken-down Los Angeles metro area/surrounding area, about the size of San Francisco. I've seen a screenshot from the Griffith Observatory and DTLA is about where LA Community College would be located.

So, just a bit of observation that I spent the night looking at and can't properly explain, but the place where Trevor takes off from in the second trailer has to have the Tatavian Mountains to the left and the Vinewood hills to the right. I also am nearly 100% sure that the buildings on the left in the shot are the prison. While there is nothing definitive out there this is how I observe it. I've looked at the other possibilities that have merit, like it being silos in Grapeseed or (an old thought of mine) it being south of Los Santos looking at the city. Neither make sense to me, but i could be wrong. I just feel that I'd rather go with instinct brought on by long observation of all the images the related areas and potential areas. If anyone cares and has the tools to argue for another spot please do.

In that Trevor shot, I think the camera is facing East.
The Vinewood Hills and Tataviam Mountains are out of shot to the right.
The mountains in the background are Mt Flat, Mt Rough and Mt Pointy, according to the names given by lxr.
The plane is going toward the west.
So I believe that those structures in the background are located in Grapeseed.
And since Grapeseed is the Industrial heart of the Alamo Sea, I'm guessing those are industrial silos or some kind of factory.
Maybe an oil refinery ?

You talking about this picture?

I'm think this is here too, because it's a place we never see in any pictures.

Yeah that's the pic I was talking about.
I'm 99% sure that those things in the background are located in Grapeseed. The southern part of Grapeseed even.

By the way, here's a couple of new pics I made :

Yes i'm all right with that, the back mountains, the location with regard to the aerodrome, seems to be in that direction, and not found any other places that seems like this.

And like i said there is no pictures with this place the only pics in that direction there is alaways fog in front of.

Yeah it seems to be South grapeseed, not sure what the buildings are though. The built up area on my map was a bit too far south.

From what we have seen until now I'm also assuming some kind of agriculture related industry, like grain silos or a fertilizer plant.

I think this is maybe silos or a factory because in the card of grapeseed there is "The Industrial heart of alamo sea"

The more I look at these pictures - the more I think that the map could be wider than it is tall.

Maybe the close-up city view is on the back of the map is in a different orientation to the main map.

So the city close-up is Portrait orientation . But The main map is Landscape Orientation.

The city is in shot with the skydiving as well as the Alamo sea - The Alamo sea is not that wide (longer than wide) then we get
Chiliad with the town the other side.

It just seems that the Alamo with rivers running out of each end - and mountain ranges at each end would have to be wider than this.
Unless the Alamo is slightly twisted anticlockwise compared to the lower part of the map - meaning the rivers don't run exactly west and east

I am probably just getting my brain in a twist but I cant stop thinking this after looking at these shots.

Interesting! That looks possible.
Possible there will be more of a town near there too, and a rail station would make sense.

Just killing time until the multiplayer trailer comes out.

user posted image

All of the foreground features were highlighted straight from the image, so there are a few roads that aren't on Fido's map yet. (lift your game mate lol.gif )
Most of the roads & features around the airstrip, prison & Sandy Shores were taken from Fido's map.
Some of the minor roads at the top centre of the image could be contour lines from the hills, but most of them are actual roads. It was quite hard to distinguish between the two.

Edit. The freeway is in yellow.

2nd Edit. idlewood beat me to it by a few minutes. Good job icon14.gif
Good to see the two images for comparison.
