There's a spoiler-free ~15 min video of all the mapping-relevant outdoor scenes from the TV ads. It has no sound, so that it doesn't even spoil the experience of watching TV. This is really just for mapping.

You'll find it on reddit (in the gtaleaks subreddit). No link, sorry, and please don't spam this thread with stills.

There are lots of new details (place names, buildings etc.), but mostly in well-known areas. The most obvious revelation are two shots of the area east of the wind farm.

We should all migrate to Reddit honestly, maybe create our own subreddit for mapping. This forum has gone to hell.

Get over yourselves... are you aware that the same has happened to Reddit? sigh.gif

I've said in my post, use spoiler tags and you can discuss minimal spoilers. No images or links though.

We still have solid discussion if people stop talking about the spoilers without constant editing of half the posts by mods. if people want to watch the video its fine but just map what we because its useless the mods are just going to keep telling us no and lock everything up. we have no say in what happens

Are you aware that if you create your own subreddit you can post whatever the f*ck you want without getting locked, secretly deleted or dimwitted replies from moderators?

Seriously though, no images? That's insane, you're ruining all the hard work people placed into this thread. It's f*cking rude, and shows a little the mods care about the users here who poured hours into the project. Like I said, those who are mapping should move elsewhere; you do great work and you should be able to use all assets available to complete that work; without over-zealous, inconsiderate rockstar lackeys getting in the way.

Come on people, don't take this bullsh*t. This is your thread, not theirs. This website and thread only exists because we're part of it. They should listen to our requests, and if they don't we should leave.

What's there to discuss then? We have all the info we need, yet we can't use any of it. We can't really do anything! Someone just make updates to the map from the leaks, and then upload it. Are the mods going to take it down, and force us to wait until that info gets released officially?

I've already stated that you can discuss information with spoiler tags, but images and links (of the leaks) are not allowed.

So we can discuss what we saw in the videos of leaks?

Lol this is like a code red for gta forums. No leaks at all but all of the resources to map and discuss. Anyways, you should be able to discuss MAP LEAKS not Story spoilers. If you discuss story spoilers it is an automatic ban.

Yes, to a point. Nothing involving storylines, but anything else mappy must be tagged and again images and links can't be allowed at the moment, I'm sorry.

I've been here long enough to see this forum's decline. This mapping project cannot continue without new images. The leaks are the best we have, and very well could be the best until the game's release.

You keep placing blame on us, the people who created this thread and worked hard on it. We are no ruining it; you and the other moderators have effectively ruined this project. You are to blame, so stop deflecting the blame and man up; allow us to continue, and to post what we want.

Can't you see everybody getting behind what I'm stating? Give us what we want, or we will take it.

Most likely made them a deal or made a threat to sue.. As to why this thread is even open who the hell knows it has SPOILERS in it but it can stay only if you post nothing about the maps what kind of BS is this lol

Someone please answer me this: How was the traffic? I didn't get to see it, and I'm not watching the videos. Also, is the map really Bugger than we expected? Larger than 3.5 RDR? just a yes or no will do me good.

I saw the leaks.
Traffic kinda looks like this : user posted image

For the map, Los Santos feels like a real city, it's huge. Just imagine how the countryside is actually, specially the "hidden" things that aren't shown on the trailers and screenshots.
Trust me, it's even bigger than you think biggrin.gif

The traffic everyone went apesh*t about showed about 70-80 vehicle freeway traffic jam which is impressive, but in the background there was just a few odd cars, so it also could be created just for the ad because it's clear on some other videos that R* has used assets exclusive to those ads only.

As for the map, for me it seemed to be a LOT bigger than what has been established in this thread. Then again a large proportion of the official screenshots have been up in the sky where as the tv spots are on the ground level. So the map could be the same size as ever but the perspective makes it appear a lot bigger. Anyway it's safe to say that certain individuals who have been complaining about the map being too small were wrong and they should feel happy about it.
