Oh lord that's gonna be epic. I'll definitely try to be a part of it too. Hopefully everybody from this thread comes back when that time comes. :)

Hopefully it will be for Vice City.

Hi guys, as some know, soon will leave the Mafia 3, so I was wondering if there was interest in doing a mapping in the new city, New Bordeux / New Orleans, it is just to know, here about what I mean, regards

@edwardjeria:

It's off topic but I've made comparisons IRL/IG in other games : Assassin's creed Unity and Syndicate, Watch Dogs, Fallout 4, Mafia 3 etc. 

 

Take a look at my posts in this topic about Mafia 3 in GTANF forum ( in french ), my username is Master Nawak there.

I live in Los Angeles, but I don't think they based it on any street in specific, as there are countless similar streets. I miss the version from San Andreas though.

Anyone find Lester's house?

We've found Lester's warehouse/clothing factory, but not his house in El Burro Heights or the house he gives Franklin in Vinewood Hills.

This is his warehouse.  It's real life address is 635 Mateo St Los Angeles.

Spoiler

 

We're still looking for these other two houses though.

Spoiler

 

If you want to have a look for yourself, I'd suggest to search every street in this area 1st.  Let us know how you get on.  :D

I've seen Lester's warehouse in real life even before the game came out (along with most landmarks in the game). It's a huge satisfaction though when they replicate more obscure "landmarks" like his warehouse. But I know the Mateo area pretty well as I've shot movies there.

Pretty sure about 90-95% of the buildings and structures in V are replicated.

I'm so glad my city takes center stage in a video game, wish GTA would have a setting here.

I know it's off topic for GTA but...The building quoted in red is the old World Trade Market, I'm not sure who owns the building now but a quick google search should do the trick.

The bridge in the game screenshot would be the present day Greater New Orleans Bridge (GNO); I'm not sure what the name of the bridge was in the 1960's but it is LA HWY 90.

Been a while since we had a new find.   :)

Google have updated Streetview in some rural areas. Had a look at this garage a couple of years ago, but the previous Streetview images were so grainy, it made it hard to spot all the little details.  Funnily enough though, it's only the older Streetview images that show the little side windows.

 

In-game - Flywheels Garage, Panorama Dr, Grand Senora Desert.

Real life - Motorhead Auto Garage, 201 Nth Sorenson Ave, Calipatria.

New find!

 

I recently got back into the PC version of GTA V after having not played it in a while. After replaying the mission where you shoot down a plane and noticing a sign for the "Vinewood estates" while driving in the mission, I started looking around the RL equivalent area in Google Maps, since I was unsure if it had been found or not (And it had). After finding that out, I changed my focus to the houses instead. While browsing through Google maps, I found this area:

Which reminded me of this place from the game.

After checking the surrounding Google Maps to see if this place was unique, I realised that I had stumbled on a new find by complete accident! And this place hadn't even been entered onto the Grandtheftdata website!

You guys are the real MVP! Damn! You got to see the map before its release...

I'd be very happy to be part of the next adventure. Hopefully a Vice City map.
