I'm actually disappointed of the lack of new info revealing in the trailer. It's just a recap of... well, I haven't seen anything new. confused.gif Hopefully North Yankton will come soon.

Yeah same here... Me thinks the trailer wasn't really for anyone who comes to GTAforums frequently, we already know most of the details; no, this trailer was for those who aren't familiar with GTA V or haven't really heard about it.

Don't really see what you're trying to do here. whatsthat.gif

EDIT: Since we've gotten literally nothing from the trailer, how about we discuss the locations from the leaked ads? There was a dense forest and a large mountain in the background. confused.gif

Leaked ads are pretty much a no-go for some of our most prestigious members like Fido, and are technically not allowed on the forums. But I wanna know something, _kindled_. In case the map gets leaked and there aren't any significant new locations, will you buy the game? You've been disappointed in the map size for as long as I've seen your posts.

I will most definitely be disappointed... but that won't stop me from playing the game. confused.gif We still haven't seen North Yankton more than once, though. And, remember it's supposedly in Canada. orly.gif

Kirsty said we can discuss the ads but no pics of it tho.

just a regualt plane in the distance... probably an cuban800

Well watch the trailer again because it doesnt move like a plane at all.

You know why? because its flying thords the camera. witch make it looks like it fly slowly wobbling in the wind.

Youre right, Iwatched it in 360p... realised it later smile.gif

Well, I've seen some pics from the leaked TV ads (thanks lxr) and there really isn't much to map either.
I think with what we have been doing for 2 years, there's not much left to discover.

I have a question, I was gonna make a new thread when I saw this, but this is the mapping topic, so it's the best place where the most people will know:

Where the hell does that water in the dam come from? Like, where does it flow from? How does such a high amount of water get up there, and has the mapping topic participants found the source through the screenshot mapping?

Is it coming from the Alamo Sea? Is the Alamo Sea elevated?

It really confuses me, as to where this big body of water and its feeder streams come from?

You're kidding, right? bored.gif North Yankton was only shown once. The ads sowed a lot of countryside, a lot of that I haven't even seen. I still don't we have the entire map, because of North Yankton supposedly being in Canada. confused.gif

@KidAmnesiac42: It seems more fitting for a first trailer. confused.gif Am I right?

I strongly suspect North Yankton will be like the ghost town in GTA 3 in terms of its role in the game at least;

the opening titles may see Michael's last job before retiring, which possibly took place in North Yankton, Canada, and it won't be accessible to the player anywhere on the map

But that is pure speculation on my part.

It makes me think that R* put NY on the postcard for advertising the locations. If that's the case, it may be like Liberty City in GTA SA, accessible after a certain mission, or Alderney in GTA IV. confused.gif

Just looked back at the current version of the fan-map.

The Vinewood sign and the dam aren't in the right place, surely!

Look at that pic and check it against Fido's current map.

Ehh, few possibilities i believe:

1: it's delivered by very big trucks
2: it's filled with rainwater
3: aliens
4: the pipes we see going underground pump it up to that reservoir
5: we misplaced something
6: water from melting snow on the mountain near los santos tounge2.gif
7: rockstar hates to do this like it is in real life

No, let's be serious, i think it could be 2, 4 or 5

Yes it's based on the Mullholand dam.
Maybe Negan doesn't realise that man made lakes are created by building a dam.

It looks like streams will lead into it from the hills, possibly the tallest of the vinewood hills is right behind that reservoir.

I really thought that the infamous North Yankton location debate was going to be solved in today's official trailer. confused.gif Needless to say, i'm pretty disappointed. But i'm still going with the increasingly unpopular theory that North Yankton is an island to the North of Chiliad.

To be honest, I didn't expect it to reveal much either. Most of the trailers never did. I guess we just wait or new info to drop.

I have a question, I was gonna make a new thread when I saw this, but this is the mapping topic, so it's the best place where the most people will know:

Where the hell does that water in the dam come from? Like, where does it flow from? How does such a high amount of water get up there, and has the mapping topic participants found the source through the screenshot mapping?

Is it coming from the Alamo Sea? Is the Alamo Sea elevated?

It really confuses me, as to where this big body of water and its feeder streams come from?

thats what ive been wondering about , too ... discuss guys , because i have no idea right now lol.gif

A reservoir does not need to have a natural inlet, they are sometimes just used as a battery for load balancing a nearby powerplant. Water can be pumped into the reservoir by using excess power from another plant (usually during the night when power demand is low), the reservoir is then used to produce hydroelectric power during the day (when power demand is high).
