Koreatown - The Abbey Building (Sunshine Apartments)

 

Koreatown - Denny's (Taco Bomb)

 

7e51c05b-420f-4062-abc7-4944cc044fd0.jpg

 

My best guess for this "Airang Plaza" building is The Brown Derby. It's not really close but the parking garage is spot-on.

 

The Abbey Building is a perfect match.   :^:

I'm not sure about the Airang Plaza either.  Maybe a hybrid of a couple different buildings.

I think Fido found the Denny's (Taco Bomb) from the Chameleon screenshot a few weeks ago.  No cookie.  :D

Oh, must have forgotten. No worries. Yeah, Airang Plaza is an amalgamation of a couple of buildings.

Santa Monica, crossroad of Arizona Street and 3rd Avenue promenade: 301 Arizona

 

It's the fourth building of this crossroad in Santa Monica, the others were already identified by Fido

 

301arizona.jpg

 

It's also one of both buildings seen in the "bouncing" scene of the second trailer, the second is the Trastevere restaurant already found by Mrthingus.

 

Trastevere on Santa Monica and 3rd, making appearance as the Nutaski restaurant.

Whats the point in still mapping stuff? Its just a massive waste of time. This thread should be locked. More fun and informative threads get locked or deleted all the time.

I don't think so. Good find. I was looking at the area yesterday, trying to find the blue apartment building that Barry lives in and the big black one at the other side of the street.

This one is quite amazing (seen on reddit). Haven't found it yet though, neither in-game nor in real life.

I've found where the hikers shot is from!

 

0_0.jpg

 

It's the view of Mount Chiliiad's north face, from the hills east of Paleto Bay. I'll try get a day pic from the same place. The trees in the Hiker's shot are also missing- I think they resculpted this area post-trailer 1.

 

Edit- here, this one is taken from the exact spot of the trailer- distinctly lacking trees.

Amazingly, those 4 buildings I found in MdR are found in the exact location in real-life. Here's a comparison:

Couple more Malibu/Chumash homes.

There are several beachfront streets in Malibu that have no google street view, so the remaining houses may be hard/impossible to find.

They're not working for some reason :( 

 

Could you perhaps post it in this thread? Looks pretty cool. Also, it would've been awesome if R* gave us the option to use that map in our pause menu.

These links take you to a site called hugefiles.net where you have to download the map files.  It was working fine for me a few minutes ago, although it takes a bit longer to load than a normal page.

Edit.  If you click on the "Art & Downloads" tab at the bottom of the GTA V website, it will take you to page where you can download the digital manual & map, or just click the links below.

I have to correct an old mistake. In L.S. the bradbury building is not at a corner.

 

Downtown, Braodway: Bradbury building

Its glass rooftop can be seen on the map.

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... ;)

 

Okay, just found some time to put together a small demo of how that could work (link). It may have bugs, won't work in Internet Explorer, and doesn't have more than 3 landmarks yet, but it's probably good enough to get the idea.
 
What we'd need for every landmark is:
 
- its name in the game (of course, some buildings may not have one)
- a screenshot (Rockstar, Imgur, whatever)
- its location on the game map, between 0,0 and 12000,12000 (easy, just look at the URL in the browser)
- its name or address in real life (basically something that you can type into Google Maps to get there)
- an image taken in real life (Wikipedia, Google Images, etc)
 
Those could be collected in a text file or spreadsheet, or, ideally, I'd make an interface to add places.
 
Let me know what you think...

@ lxr.

Great stuff.  Can't wait to see it develop over time.

 

@ Kindled.

The angle is not 100%, but close enough to get the idea.

Somebody should try to recreate all the screenshots we got from GTA V, so we could see if they did changes !
AAND,  :cookie: to @Fishman92 for finding the hikers shot ! He should have done a selfie like the hikers from the same spot :D
