You need a commendation. You do a better job than I did with my Liberty City Real Life Counterparts thread. :^:

Wayne, I knew you'd tackle the Vinewood Hills one day. I'm guessing there will be a few replicas and you might see a few Chumash houses.

@ StingrayX

I'm sure some of these people do play GTA V.  How cool would it be to drive around a corner in Vinewood Hills & come face to face with your own home.

A lot of these houses are neighbours in the game and in real life.  Some of them are even next door neighbours in real life.

 

@ Mrthingus

I didn't want to start looking for the Vinewood homes, but you & koeklin have raped & pillaged the Los Santos suburbs.  There's not much left for anyone else  :lol:

There are 4 homes in particular that are duplicated 5 or 6 times each in the Vinewood Hills.  If I can find them in real life, I'll be able to cross about 20-25 homes off the list.  One of them is also a Chumash home.

Speaking of duplicate houses, here are a couple I forgot to put in the original posts.

Just as a bit of reference, this is a map of the houses in the Vinewood Hills & Richman area.  I wont worry about the shops & other buildings as a lot of them have already been identified over the last 2 years.

The green dots represent the houses that have been found so far.  I'll update this image when (if) I find a few more.  I think 100 finds is a realistic target.

12 down, about 240 to go.   :panic:

Finding real-life buildings. Since the game launched we've found treasure troves of them.

 

Also, this building strongly resembles 2204 Strongs Drive near the Venice Canals.

I said it before but I don't think anybody noticed it. We should create a thread primarily for real life counterparts, having thr OP updated and listing all of the buildings.

We've got the interactive map which lxr created & Fido is updating.  http://rolux.org/gtavmap

When I get some spare time, I'll update some of the pictures to show the real life & in-game versions.

The interactive map could probably be put in the OP of this thread.

I'm gonna need a second opinion with this one.   Can I confirm this one, or should I keep looking?

The house is a totally different shape & size etc, but the decorative features are identical.

 

Real life.  8660 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood Hills.

In game.  Mad Wayne Thunder Dr, Vinewood Hills.

I'd say confirm it. It's got a different design but is close enough, with that single, circular window and slope-like roof design.
