Incredible, just one week left and the second city nonsense crops up again.

 

On the bright side though: Just one week, and it'll be over ;)

 

Again: The location of these pixels in the helicopter shot are 100% consistent with the location of the wind farm.

 

And the buildings marked up in the other image are a bit out of frame, to the left (i.e. a bit further northeast). If you're willing to read the entirety of this thread, you'll find a sophisticated, tower-by-tower attempt to match them to the skyline of Long Beach, but... no, it's just some agricultural or industrial complex.

 

 

Edit: Here's a rough, somewhat subjective sketch of how well we know the map. Green is a lot of ground-level shots, yellow is at least some aerial views, red is not much at all. So there's room for surprises, but really not much room, and not for anything too sensational.

Tough call, but... maybe these are in fact all the same:

Second city confirmed!

That word... It has lost all meaning here on the GTAForums.  Everyone uses it randomly, especially when they shouldn't be.  I would like you to google "confirmed".

 

Anyway, its just the windfarm.  Unless you consider a windfarm a second city, you're out of luck.

All 3 certainly appear to be the same. My guess would be the aircraft shot was taken not far from the bridge with the plane heading up river.

Something that I keep noticing is that the wide angle view of all the skydiving shots really made the area seem alot flatter/smaller than it is from the normal ground/player perspective. From the air that canyon seems "meh", but from the ground or even the lower perspective of flying through it, it seems unbelievably immense...

In the last picture, the way its brighter than all the ground makes it look like a pond or something. Maybe its a moat to keep the prisioners from escaping :lol:

 

Not sure if that would make much sense... but whatever it is, it's not an elevated structure.

Okay, I think I'm making the call... Franklin's (slightly shape-shifting?) villa is the one in the red circle.

If you're talking about Paleto Bay (the town in the north), then yes, anything else of that size is pretty unlikely.

 

However, I think we can't rule out a fourth (small, maybe coastal) airstrip. It would be slightly strange if there was only one airport where you could land without getting a warning level. That's speculation though.

Agree about the airport my guess is there are a few strips maybe even a personal one where you can store planes in a hanger

 

Didn't know that we knew the name of that town its a decent size that's all I really wanted for other town different sizes and I assume personalitys

Yeah, pretty much.  Could also be one of the homes to the right of the red circle.

So i think i'm gonna call it a day with this map, seeing as the game is out in 7 days, and we'll have the real map then, there'll be no use for this one.

No 3d version of the real map in the future? :p

And it looks nice! But it's going slower now than before.
