I don't want to turn this into the size thread again, but I did always suspect the 3.5x RDR was a way of saying 'not as big as 2x San Andreas.'

I dont want to C&P a train of quotes so ill just say I think it says '...Lake and Resevoir' even though it looks more like research even to me...i say this because it seems to be a building built on water...am I the only one who thinks so? If so ill shut-up

Not gonna tell you to shut up...could well be right also...

I see its above a sort of bay area which is private-ish...but doesnt seem to be a lake or reservoir in immediate vicinity. There is also a few other such water areas... Hey. maybe i'm reaching/projecting in wanting it to be a research centre!

The whole RDR, SA comparisons were inclusive of underwater and interior environments.

Is Palmer Taylor power station named after Presidents in 24? :p

 
Totally my thought :D

Also in Season 1 of 24, one of the plots is to kill Palmer inside a Power Station? Rockstar is great haha.

I'd also like to point out that the Griffith Observatory is most likely the 'Galileo Observatory' (I hope you get the obvious telescope reference) and the Greek Theater seems to be the 'Soprano Theater (another obvious reference).

After looking at the allegedly leaked map (which looks like a exremly well done fan art) I´ve only got 2 questions:

 

* Where´s the claimed desert area that´s confirmed being in the game? 

 

* Where´s North Yankton?

Dunno.  A lot of previous posts are missing.

Are they counting this as a serious leak, like the hacked videos?

Posted 10 September 2013 - 02:49 PM Edited by DTUMan, 10 September 2013 - 03:04 PM. Yep. Still violated the "no leaks" policy.

So, I can't post this picture that shows how big it really is? It includes the gameplay scenes (from the switching of the characters)

 

Maybe as a link to the source and there is the picture?

--link removed--

 

Really, check it out.

 

(sorry if it still violates against the "no map leak" policy)

Yeah I agree. If the concerned folk want to look at it another way, the game is over 71% the size of San Andreas for land mass alone. This doesn't include the water and interiors, which is the equivalent of 64% of San Andreas, or in zombies way of thinking, 32% the size of 2 San Andreas maps.

So overall the map is roughly 206% the size of 1 San Andreas map.

I'm so excited for the game, it wouldn't matter if it was only 3 RDRs for the whole thing including underwater/interiors.

Señora Desert is directly south of Sandy Shores.

Its probably a mission only place is what we can assume without looking up spoilers or believing what the folk at reddit have to say.

The desert is the sandy shores area... We have known this for a loooong time.

 

People that read the guide said North Yankton is a mission only place... (like LC in SA)

I don't get why so many people are doubting if this map is real or not. Yes, the fanmaps are extremely close, but the outline of the map has been known for quite a few weeks (the icon in the achievement leak), and the southern part (LS) has been known for ages (due to the blueprint map). Also, the northern part was shown on a blueprint map, and parts of the alamo sea and Mt. Josiah were shown on in-game maps on walls. There are so many great vistas in the screens and trailers, so the area in the middle was ready to be mapped, it just took a lot of research and time. In the end, I'm not suprised every angle seem to match almost perfectly. As you can see, a few areas where unknown, but I don't think this official map is fake. R* just gave a way too much info.

 

Also, the dessert area (The Grand Senora dessert, the name is right there on the map) is south of Sandy Shores. It's not really that big, unfortunately. 

North Yankton, I don't know. I hear alot about it being an mission-only location, but I haven't looked into recent leaks so I'm not sure.

Where's NORTH YANKTON? 

What most people don't know is that Mt. Chilliad is actually hollow and North Yankton is actually located inside the mountain. I'm canceling my pre-order because they've obviously stole this idea from Blackreach in Skyrim.

Idk I was hoping for just one more town than we'd seen. Major props to all the work done but I didn't think that when Rockstar said 'towns' they literally meant towns as in... just two.

So I think this means we're not allowed to posted the official map? I'm expecting a mod post in the next few minutes.

 

If this is because R* asked, than okay. But if this means that we're not allowed to discuss the map in the mapping thread, because of spoilers and leaks, then I don't know.. I mean it's only a few days away, if you don't want to get spoiled, stay away from the gta forums.

Where did the map with the icons come from? I'm seeing a lot of people talking about icons but on the map I have there is no icons whatsoever!

 

Also, I could've sworn there was a stream that ran down mount chiliad into the Alamo sea?

Grapeseed seems to be bigger than I was expecting. Am I correct in thinking we've not really seen many shots taken from inside the town?

Posted 10 September 2013 - 03:08 PM Edited by DTUMan, 10 September 2013 - 03:10 PM. No leaks.

just a thought guys...

 

i think there could well be more than the two maps we've seen in the brady game guide book scans so far.

The first map posted was on a right hand side page (just numbers pointing to parts of map)

--removed--
...and if you look closely, opposite is a black and white page....whereas the second map (one with the different icons on it)

 

--removed--
posted is also on the right hand side of the book if you zoom in to the top left of the page you can see another map opposite this one...which implies a third version perhaps displaying more information/features...?

So yeah I reckon there's more maps/more stuff to be identified...so everyone calm down :)
