@Wayne Kerr

I absolutely believe you are right about it being the same airfield and not a different one. I just checked the rest of the mission which pretty much starts out in Sandy Shores. Before arriving at the airfield a coyote bolts away. All the details of the start of the mission lead me to believe the airstrip has got to be in the desert and since it seems to be near Sandy Shores it can only be that particular airfield.

The way back is described in such a way that the plane has got be heading east and so it is likely it is the same airstrip of the same airfield.

It is not uncommon for journalists to get confused if they haven't seen the actual map or the fanmade maps.

Yes. The mountain behind the village is Chiliad and the mountain you can actually see is Josiah (in the west). There should a picture either a page ago or a earlier in which Wayne Kerr explains it better what you are seeing in the screenshot.

This is one third of the entire map. It is basicly the first part of the blue print we saw.

It's toward the north of the city, west of Vinewood Boulevard.
You have the Viper room parody to the left, along with Terner's Liquor.

Stop it. The city is bigger than Liberty City and that is decent enough in size. The silly complaints from people who don't understand perspective nor understand maps is getting ridiculous.

You're kidding right? Do you realize how large just the Vinewood Sign is going to look to us when standing behind it like that? Now imagine being down in that city. It's going to be huge, trust me.

Not really a mapping detail but in the background you can see a parody of the ubiquitous American Apparel billboards along the Sunset Strip.

You are just a bunch of fanatics - Regardless what you HEAR Regardless what you SEE you believe in the hype! Regardless which kind of official info who comes from R* you starts drooling and crying over critics..!! You repons to critics like you are brainwashed!!

Everybody, with a open mind, can se from that screenshot that the city is VERY VERY small..!! You cant even compare it to Liberty City!!

As i have said it before (in another topic), the city will only be 1/10th of the hole map! Listen here, go to 10:00 min. - Demo preview

That screenshot is beautiful. I cannot understand how anyone could be unhappy with how this game looks. Imagine the feeling of relative quiet standing up near the Vinewood sign whilst seeing the glow and promise an exciting metropolis spread out below. This game is going to be spectacular.

Does anyone know if Blaine County and Los Santos are the only maps in the game? It could be me but I believe there was no talk or images of Las Venturas, San Fierro or any other areas in the game aside from the other 2. Hmmm......

Yes, it is bigger. Are you calling people like Magic Al and GTAlex liars? They did the math and came to about the same conclusion. And the conclusion is that Los Santos is bigger than Liberty City, even if LC includes the water between the islands. Eyeballing something isn't going to give you an idea of size, actual measurements and math will.

Exactly this. The first thing I imagined as soon as I saw it was just sitting there, overlooking that amazing view. You can also see a little care in that parking lot, it helps you imagine just how small your character will be compared to that huge area sitting infront of you.

Guys we should just ignore the troll. You suck

@mappers

Games map will feature a fog of war type thing where you have to drive/fly etc around to discover the map in full on the pause menu etc. it'll all be blacked out until you drive or,fly through the blacked out parts.
