Yeah, sometimes it just likes to play hide and seek.  :catspider:

I have been following this thread two years (and 7-8 months with an account) i will miss it. This was the best thread in the forums. Now it's time lo leave. We pass good times, identifying since the first trailer, and with every video and screen until today. A too enjoyable thread in a forum is hard to find. All the great work you do, the good times when we hyped... it's time to go. 

 

GOODBYE TO ALL THE MAPPERS, ESPECIALLY TO YOU, FIDO.  :)

Now that it's here, could we see Fido's first map? There's one on his Flickr that's dated 'Before July 2012', but I'm not entirely sure it's his first one.

I've got one from November 14, 2011. This is where it all began.

On another note, Union Station is not in. I rolled by where we all thought it was and there was just a Spanish-looking house.

Hey guys !

 

In order to keep this community working together, I created a crew dedicated to the mappers of this topic.

While the car wash sign looks like Imperial Car Wash from Inglewood upon further inspection the building actually looks like Mission Car Wash in San Fernando Valley (best pic I could find, sorry). 

 

I also spotted the Los Angeles Theater in some other gameplay.

 

This one is on Pico boulevard. Maybe we can find another car wash in the same style...

(googlemaps : http://goo.gl/maps/3JZFO )

 

picocarwash.jpg

 

That car wash from Pico Blvd is a clone of the Imperial Car Wash yes (albeit better preserved) but the one in San Fernando Valley I posted is different. The car wash in the game features curved panels for the signage of the big letters on the side of the building like the one in San Fernando Valley. here's a video of it http://www.youtube.c...h?v=HwlucxKwaH4

 

But maybe it has a twin like that other car wash.

Thank you to all the mappers, especially Fido you did an excellent job you put so much work into mapping this thing and you did a hell of a job. I've been following this thread since it was started, we made history here. No other game has fans like us that put hours into making our own version of the map and sharing where things are on it. The wait sucked but we made it. 2 f*cking years and its here. I hope to see you guys on GTAO.. My GT is Hidden Polish 2 if anyone is interested in playing online ;)

I wonder if anyone is going to get images of when they're switching characters and build up a really extremely detailed map at the closest zoom level.
 
Maybe the next community thread


Yup, thought of that, too. Even the in-game map at highest resolution would be a good thing to have.

Bigger goals would be something like this, or even this (drop orange ped for streetview).

 

I'm amazed at the map content of the official manual app. Rockstar has done everything except street view. It's like they've looked how people have spent their time ripping and rendering the maps of previous games and did it for us so we have more time to play the actual game.  :r*:

Do you like classical music Mrthingus?
 
Dorothy Chandler Pavilion
 
This building is in the north of L.A. downtown IRL, but in Los Santos it can be found in Little Seoul

I gotta say that I´m really impressed by the work you guys have done on the mapping!  :cookie:

 

It´s unbelievable to think that we knew 90% of the map almost a year pre-release.   :blink:

While my kids are hogging the PS3, I might as well spot a few buildings too.

This one in real life is located at 19296 East Pacific Coast Highway Malibu.

In the game it's actually duplicated.  Once on the northern Chumash service road, & once on the southern service road.

Not yet.  I'm surprised nobody has recreated that scene yet.

I went looking for it yesterday but got sidetracked after killing some random hikers & then outrunning the cops.  :miranda:
