How long to climb up that? :p

I'll try after I be lazy and take the cable car. Which, btw, is the black line on the map that goes from Paleto Forest to the icons on top of Mt. Chiliad.

I want to add my thanks to the mappers too. As someone who has read each and every post on this thread, I have been so impressed with the skill, dedication and verve that the mappers have put into this effort.*

Well done. And thanks for helping me pass this long wait for GTA V.

*NB. This vote of appreciation doesn't extend to the idiots and trolls who occasionally hijacked the thread with their bogus, unsubstantiated claims and/or conspiracy theories. We all know who they are.

No gambling? There would have been a marker for that right...? Oh man that's disappointing. In a game all about heists and money we have no sign or hint of any gambling minigames besides the 'casino' building next to the horsetrack, which doesn't have a marker on the map, yet we do have yoga? Weird. Oh well, not a major problem.

I must say, at first I thought you guys were a bunch of bored nerds with nothing better to do, but now that I see just how close you got to the actual map I'm blown away!

 

You did a fantastic job guys!

I mean technically they were just a bunch of bored nerds with nothing to do, but why does that have to be a bad thing?

Rockstar would not do that, they keep boasting about giving the player as much freedom as possible so I really doubt they would limit an area to just a mission.

 

GTA SA shows that Rockstar has done it before.

I know, but that was an area from GTAIII, northyankton is a whole new location. Plus Rockstar have stated that there priority in GTAV is to give the player as much freedom as possible. Trust me, its not going to be mission specific.

Its already been mentioned that there is games of chance in the game, confirmed by Jeux Actu hands on.

Hollywood Park Casino was spotted by the mappers here.

Stock markets is gambling technically some might say.

Also GTA IVs strategy guide had multiple maps with different things highlighted, so this is just a few of the maps in that guide.

Also the people worried about NO property to buy in Malibu, well who says that purchasable houses?

If it was whats that in grape seed? A house or business? If it were a business, why is their no icon for a hangar to purchase at the SS airfield? It was confirmed you can buy a
Spoiler
at that airstrip.

So please don't worry, lots still to be revealed.

The desert seems small 

 

People can't make up their minds. I remember countless threads where people were complaining that it seemed the countryside woud be mostly desert.

 

Now that we have the map and can see that the oppisite is true, people nitpick that too.

 

"Never Satisfied" should be these forums tagline.

Just calculated that round track via motorway takes 64km and with roughly 90km/h it takes 42 minutes to drive. Pretty nice!

 

With scale bottom left corner black line 2500ft / 762m.
