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

You're right. I knew I had seen that building before, It's a bit different looking however.

 

Anyway, the corner of Morningwood Blvd and Cougar Ave is a goldmine. I found these buildings:

Janss Dome:

Fox Theater (Found by Wayne earlier):

Weyburn Clock Tower (also found by Wayne earlier):

Found two others in Rockford Hills:

Sonya Dakar (LifeInvader Offices):

The Samsung Towers are found in Little Seoul, but they appear to be bent.

This one is at 20466 East Pacific Coast Hwy Malibu.

There seems to be 3 variations of the real life house.

The mansion in the screenshot is the orange roofed building in the aqua square.

I assume it's the same vineyard from the first trailer, but there are a few in that area.

31834 Broad Beach Rd.  This one was hard to find.  Stumbled upon it by chance as it's not on the water in real life.

Already asked & answered on the previous page.

Not found yet.  I don't think anyone is looking for it at the moment.

You guys are more than welcome to go & find the spot.  :^:

The guide I got on my iPod only has like 7 pages! People are saying it's 100+ pages, and there's all these screencaps of pages I don't have and I'm gonna burn my iPod down. 

 

Anywho, I can't believe Josiah is that huge! :O

 

And sadly, I can't look for it. I can't afford the game right now, and my Xbox just got broken by a friend (he got drunk and put my Xbox on the floor while I was sleeping, accidentally stepped on the disc drive and... yeah. He's dead.), so I'm relying on people here to help me out with this! HEEELP!

@Wayne Kerr, @koeklin: Great finds! (How do you do this? You PAUSE the game??  ;))

 

The mountain with the hikers is Mt. Chiliad. I still have to make it to the exact same spot, so there's no photo yet, but if you find Dignity Village (north of Chiliad, easy to miss, but it's on the map) and look up, you can see where it must be: up south from there, looking southwest.

Well... As said Nico "life is complicated":
I have a son... a kind of Jimmy (Michael's son)... a FPS player too (he usually plays Call of Duty)... however he's a good kid... And now he becomes a GTA fan. So we share the Playstation and the game.

An advice: don't have kids!

Downtown: L.A Center Studios

This building of GTAV is based on

Wow guys !!!

All those buildings you found today that's amazing !!!!

I saved all of them on Google Earth but I still need to add them to my map.

By the way, I'm starting to wonder if it's still worth doing ?

Maybe I should start working on something else, like a database of IDed buildings.

Kind of like on iGTA5 with their landmark page.

 

I was thinking of doing all that on the GTA Wiki. That way, we could all participate in

the creation of that database.

 

Tell me what you guys think.

Yes, you're right. If we wanted to do it, we could definitely make the most comprehensive map of LS/BC, with links to images/maps/streetview for all landmarks.

 

Whatever it's going to be, I think it should be based on R*s satellite map. It's one of the best official game maps I've ever seen.

 

I can make a sketch of how that could work, once I'm a bit less busy with that game... ;)

I second that notion. Something with an easy interface. Maybe if you hover the mouse over a landmark, it would show the name.

 

Fido, you should definitely keep going. It helps track down where the landmarks are exactly.

 

Been trying to track this one down. No luck so far.

@ lxr.

Don't laugh, but I actually take a photo of the TV screen.

My kids normally get on the PS3 when they get home from school, so during the day I drove around Chumash & took a photo of all the houses & buildings in the area.

That way I can still locate things while they are playing.

I was sitting on the coffee table yesterday with the controller in one hand & a camera in the other, just snapping away.

My wife walked in, took one look at what I was doing, then shook her head in disgust, mumbled something about being obsessed, then walked out.  :D

 

The sad part is, when my kids went to bed, I still continued to look for more houses rather than actually play the game.

Not sure if it's been done yet. But could someone maybe re-create the location of this screenshot, if you have the game?

This one is at 25350 Malibu road, Malibu in real life.

Looks a bit run down in the game.  Located twice in Chumash.
