Found another look at the misterious area from the post on the previous page:

Have the 2 buildings on the right already been named / mapped?

By the way, here is a link of the youtube video and i can't remember where, but at a certain point you can see michael on the left.

Gta v gamescom

Well, it isn't mysterious anymore, i think. I found this:

Correct me if you think i'm totally wrong, but please say why!

Spot on.

You're right, you can also see these buildings in this artwork: http://media.rocksta...y_2880x1800.jpg

Yep, looks right, Near137... Looks like it's the same picture/artwork just without Michael in it.

Very strange that this was already realised about 8hrs ago!
I started wondering what everyone was talking about.... I was thinking eh hang on, we already know from hours and hours ago that this is the Michael artwork

I think that artwork doesn't represent an actual area much in the same way like in this GTA4 console loading screen.

^ I don't even need a mapper to tell me where those screens are anymore, I feel like I know the compass of the map in my head too well. The ocean screens are obviously impossible to map.

Most of them have already been located.
Here's one from 9 days ago.

http://www.gtaforums...st&p=1062941247

Red helicopter has been located. Can't remember the buildings in the background though.
Military helicopter is facing NE while flying towards the Zancudo River.
Black Shamal & red car are at the airport.
The others can't be mapped obviously.

Oh come on, you're underestimating the map and human brain capacity. I'd guess astronauts have the entire planet memorized after six months of looking out this window.

General areas, sure, but do you think you could navigate yourself from place to place in Los Santos right now?

If so, I guess I just haven't studied the maps closely enought o learn them that well. My only knowledge about that goes from my observations of the layout of the real life Los Angeles.

The sqare marks that thing to lift ships out of the water.

And i´m not sure that is the exactly position of the heli but it´s in the near of this spot.
It can be also the heptagon shaped thing more left on the northern peer where all the small boats towed.

Same. I feel I pretty much know the rough layout of the whole entire map already, and the game isn't even out yet.

Looks like Malibu, and that Bay area is probably the mound of the Zancudo River.

Also, that big flat area at the base of Mt. Josiah looks like human establishment.. Maybe that's the big town CVG talked about seeing in the Titan mission.

People who are acting like you know the game very well before even playing it must not have been around when GTA IV's map was leaked about a month before its release.

So you reckon they've put Malibu on the north part of the Alamo Sea??
Remember this is the same place as the cropduster photo, only spun round 90 degrees

Nope, this area is not the Malibu area, but rather the north coast of the Alamo Sea with the camera pointed towards the west. The mountain that is mostly off screen but starts at the right is Mt. Chiliad, and in the background you can see the Range (the trailer park where the biker gang lives) and Mt. Josiah. Wayne did a nice comparison with Fido's map but I'm on mobile and can't find it right now.

Hope this clears things up!
