No harm in it staying open for now. At launch day maybe.

Why should any good thread even get locked after launch? If some people still want to find real life equivalents of the buildings in the game and post about it I don't see it harming anyone.

 

What has actually kept me on this forum, is waiting to see everyone converge here after the map is revealed. I can't wait for that. All of the congrats that will go around. It'll be a great feeling. Please don't lock this thread. AFTER, the map reveal. It's honestly become almost synonymous with this site. I mean almost 4 million views?

This thread should be locked soon after the game has launched and everyone's had time to see the real map and comment on it and the fan-map, but certainly not the same day, or the next day...keep the thread open until at least the launch of the online mode.

There is no reason to lock it.  If it gets locked, people will create new threads to discuss what should be in this thread.

@The Dark Passenger

 

Why should the thread be locked soon after the game launches? I really don't see any reason to do anything like that. If people want to comment on the map at any point in time they should be able to. If this thread gets locked it will only lead to people creating new threads to discuss what they want to discuss. And if this thread gets locked you may as well make the whole forum read-only for some days.

Please let it go on for a few more days. I'd hate to see it lock immediately after we get the map. We can still discuss the changes and whatnot.

And by the way... in IGN Q/A they talked about army bases. Not a army base. Plural so there more than the one the mappers spotted.

This is Sierra Blanca, in Marbella, Spain, home of many brittish citizens during summer time, I wonder if any of Rockstar´s map artists go over there for vacation.

When they redesigned the website, they made it so that more posts fit on each page, so this thread went from over 1000 pages down to about 700 or so.

I think I found a couple beach houses from the Malibu screenshot :

I'm not convinced about the first one.

I'm pretty sure about the middle one.

And I'm 85% sure about the right one.


 

 

but where is this located on the map...south east? edit: sout west, my bad.

The Malibu area is visible on the blueprint map northwest of the city.

I understand your sarcasm but I have actually lived in California (Big Sur) and in Marbella, and the landscape in some parts is very similar. 

 

From the wikipedia:

Mediterranean climate is the climate typical of the lands in the Mediterranean Basin, and is a particular variety of subtropical climate. The lands around the Mediterranean Sea form the largest area where this climate type is found, but it also prevails in much of California,

http://en.wikipedia....rranean_climate

 

And everything about British living in Marbella:

http://www.internati...-expats/british

 

 

 

LOL and Gotcha to you Sir and remember 

 

"The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about"

 

 

Now I remember why I didn´t participate in this forum

I know the map will be huge but in all honesty, can it be confirmed yet that GT5 is bigger than Just cause 2.

Just Cause 2 is massive, but it's also empty, it lacks tons of details that GTA V has.

GTA 5's map will not even come remotely close to Just Cause 2's map size. Just Cause is 9 to 10 times bigger than GTA 5 will be.

Christ! lol. I did have my doubts but wasn't expecting that much.

Not much need for the planes then, won't exactly take long to go from one side to the other. Took ages to do that with a jumbo in JC2.

 

I now GTA will make much better use of it's map, comparing the two games on that front is completely pointless as JC2 loses everytime, but I was hoping for a bit bigger to be honest.

This ''GTA V is larger than Red Dead, San Andreas and GTA IV combined'' is all bollocks. It's obviously not that big, why the bullsh*t? lol

Read the full article and you'll see that the hack hasn't actually spoken to anyone at R* and his entire piece has been sourced from Google.

The ones that are most apparent.

On the subject of locking this thread after release, I say we keep it open so we can compare the fan speculation to reality.

@ Fido.

Here's another shot of 19064 Pacific Coast Highway that you found yesterday.

Same window on the house next door. (red circle)

The in-game house has definitely taken some elements from the real life one.
