Nice work Mr T.
@ MrKilla. I'm a little surprised that R* has re-used some buildings several times, but only used others once. I thought they could've mix it up a bit more.
The only area that disappoints me a bit is Mirror Park/Echo Park. R* have only used 11 different houses, & duplicated them to achieve about 70 in-game houses. There are so many different & interesting looking houses in the Echo Park & Silverlake area that could've easily been used instead.
Still, the in-game world is very impressive & has an amazing amount of attention to detail. I think they have done an outstanding job overall.
Speaking of duplicates. Found a few more in the South Los Santos area that are duplicates from La Mesa.
I'll do a quick post on them later. Always good to add a few more coloured dots to the interactive map, even if they are only duplicates. They all count I suppose.
My best guess for the duplicate buildings might be technical limitations. Since the game is so incredibly big, with thousands of asseds and hundreds of thousands of textures, new buildings might not have been possible, so just duplicating a few was the only way. Case in point is Assassin's Creed II. Originally in Florence, the Baptistery was supposed to be near the cathedral as it is in real life, but technical limitations meant they had to cut it.
