Spent some time really getting to know the screens and screen captures and I have some observations. Posted them in another thread, but they are probably as a appropriate here.

If you look at the helicopter screen from yesterday, along with some of the screen captures from the trailer you can see that Los Santos is surrounded on 3 sides by hills/mountains and sea on the west. Using downtown as your focal point all sides of the map are visible if you combine all the shots that are currently available. Looking at the other screen from yesterday, you can clearly see downtown from the south, with the hills closing in on the east side. Has to be close to the edge of the city on the south side.

The helicopter shot shows Los Santos from downtown to the sea. So east to west. The oil pump capture shows Los Santos from South to North. The final shot of the trailer shows downtown from the other angle, west to east, and you can judge the distance from downtown to the hills. The second screen from yesterday shows south to north.

So you can already tell the size of Los Santos.

Based on that, if the map is the biggest ever, then there is a LOT of map that's outside of Los Santos since that city isn't bigger than Liberty. What that is we can only guess.

This city is bigger than LC if you include LS and surrounding suburbs. R* knows we wanted countryside, but they'll still gonna' make a big realistic city for those(like me) who like the city too.

If you say so. Based on what I'm seeing, the city of Los Santos (just the city portion of the map) isn't bigger than Liberty at all. Rather a bit smaller, I think. Look at the screen captures. Loook at the oil pump one and you can see how big the map is.

LC, without the water was only 6 sq miles. I doubt that LS is going to be smaller than the real LA downtown.

I mean this LS looks bigger. In real life LA is bigger than NY by size, so I feel this LS is going to be a it bigger, like Eagle said, 1 and 1/2 LC's. You forget, we still have many un scene areas, like the hills full of mansions, Santa Maria, the Southwest portion of LS, the Airport, South Central, the docks. There are still many un scene areas.

Oh, without a doubt. But that's kind of my point. There HAS to be more to the map than the city. A LOT more. The screens show that the city is surrounded by hills in a horseshoe. There's not a lof of SW LS that is unseen. The lagoon screen from yesterday is from SW Los Santos. Off to the right the hills close in at the east. Like I said, a horseshoe. Based on that the city isn't bigger than Liberty. It's not small, but to make the biggest map they've ever made, there would have to be a whole lot outside of Los Santos.

has it occured to anyone that maybe........the map isnt completely done yet? i mean i doubt they would show us parts of thr map that were still indev.

Work for 4 years and the map ain't done? No way, I think it's done, R* just wants to leave it a mystery to the people who love to explore the map. R* probably is polishing the map and fixing glitches and stuff. I doubt the map isn't done. I could be incomplete, who knows, haha.

Honestly i don't even like those modded screenshots. I guess it supposed to make GTA IV look photorealistic, but that's the thing, GTA doesn't need photorealism. I really dig V's look ALOT more.

This has no doubt been asked before, but i just read it in the facts/info thread. What is meant with Los santos, countryside and a huge map? Huge Map?

Probably the biggest map till now.

Big city, big countryside. Maybe a big sea with some islands.

Maybe even different cities icon14.gif

That's because the first is clearly a motion-captured cutscene, just like the majority of the realistic animations in the trailer that everyone seems to think are in-game animations.

R* Q stated the trailer was comprised of real ingame footage...

This guy NikoBell12 thought the trailer was pre-rendered and asked that if they made a second trailer to make it like the real game footage, but R* said the trailer was not pre-rendered it was comprised of real ingame footage.

Nope, it really wasn't.

Those two pictures are both on modded PC versions of IV. Compare those pictures to unmodded PC and console screens.

The graphics look very IV-like. I just hope they put all the fun things in this one. I was hoping they'd set V in either the 70's, or the 80's, just for that kinda atmosphere. R*'s take on 'modern-day' might be cool, though.

The console version was always going to look a little worse than the trailer. Neither one can do real AA or the perfect draw distance as seen in the trailer. But I wouldn't say it looks that much worse, it's just missing a few effects. Really, I like a comparison shot someone made between GTA IV: TBOGT high up in a helicopter and the first GTA V screen, because it really shows the improvements. It's much better to go by concrete visuals than memory, because in the GTA IV screen there were no shadows on the ground rendering from that high up, while the GTA V screen is positively saturated with shadows and contrast. It's also less monochromatic.

So the improvements really are there. And the second screen looks great. Definitely on par with RDR, which is about what I'd expect, and the water effects look even better. When the developers are working on the same hardware, with the same limitations, and are adding the biggest map and most likely largest amount of content in a Rockstar game of this generation yet, can you really expect to see that much of an improvement over GTA IV? They were always going to be about the same, but with some better effects and more polish. I personally think the improvements are significant enough and addressed the complaints I had about GTA IV's graphics.

By the way, those screen shots are very unfair to the consoles. If you actually played IV on the console, it does not look fuzzy like that at all.

Agreed. IV seems to be getting exaggerated for how bad the graphics look now. They were brilliant at the time, and if the game came out now they would still be decent. Obviously we expect a lot more from V, but IV's graphics wouldn't look appalling now.

No, it's just that us console players don't spend all day at their desks playing on PC with eyes right infront of the screen, so our eyes are not ruined like yours, which make you think that anything not running on your 'rig' is terrible, when infact it's perfectly fine.

Back on topic, I think the new style of the environment looks awesome. I can't wait to hang around the area of the second pic

Heavily paraphrased: "Oh no! The textures aren't shiny enough! That material is sooo blurry! THe game looks sh*t!"


All you non-contributing zeroes really need to get off your high horse. If you could make a game anywhere near the quality of GTA V then you wouldn't be sitting here talking about it.

Chillax, I was just poking fun! I obviously know that those are sh*tty low-res screenshots. It was just a little fun, note the Max Payne constipation face.

Anyone whos complaining about the graphics are simply ignorant. Its either big city/normal graphics or small city/great graphics. You can't have it both ways.

Games like Call of Duty focus on graphics, therefore the maps are tiny and the gameplay is bad. Games like GTA and RDR have to sacrifice graphics to make the gameplay and map size bigger. I am surprised at how good the graphics of GTA 5 actually are, considering theyre probably taken from the XBOX.

I think V is a solid improvement over IV. Sure, it's certainly not the best looking console game, but for an open world game running on outdated hardware (not trying to sound like a jerk, I own only consoles) like that is a technical feat. The water is beautiful, draw-distance has greatly improved, more dramatic lighting and less jagged-shadows, but most of all COLOR.

Sorry. It's just that this thread has sadly plunged into many console-PC wars, and so have many other topics.
