Exactly. But it appears that so many in this thread are far too easily satisfied, and are prepared to accept, defend, and even praise the developers for such shortcomings.

They remind me of the fanbase of a certain annually released fps game.

Come now, Scottish Guy. Be nice! tounge2.gif

Tbh, in many ways its the BHC, or anti-RDF guys or whatever who remind me of the CoD fanbase as none of the BHC are willing to put their money where their mouth is. CoD fanboys will complain about Treyarc vs. Infinity Ward, or DLC, but they can't help but buy it all in the end, giving Activision their nefarious power. Their dissatisfaction is superficial, much like that expressed in this nearly 190 page thread. Actions speak much louder than words and almost no one complaining about LS' shortcomings will allow their dissatisfaction to prevent them from purchasing or playing V. In the end, it's all idle whining from the mouths of babes: nothing more, nothing less. The map hasn't changed and you're all still buying the game.

But before anyone dismisses me as "RDF," know that I was one of the first to complain about R*'s day one DLC SE/CE debacle and, unlike most of the BHC, I will be putting my money where my mouth is and sticking with the standard edition of GTA V. Again, actions speak louder than words.

How's this.. they're both as bad as each other. It's amazing how un-civil people of both sized are. Props to The Scottish Guy for being one of the few to keep a cool head consistently.

I've got an idea, let's compare it using the Santa Monica Pier. Does anybody know how large that is?

I posted this in Mapping LS but I know you guys have a boner for sizing things so here you go:

Below is a map of Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. This is the only area (that I know of) that has a cluster of high rise buildings in Charlotte. The entire area within the highway is approximately 1.5 sq miles. I think a good way to guage the size of Los Santos would be to compare the arena in the LS map to either Bank of America stadium in the top orange part of the Charlotte map or The Time Warner Cable arena in the green part right under east trade st. I would make a comparison image but im doing this on my phone.

Im pretty sure that if we scale the 2 maps together Los Santos would be quite bigger. What I am trying to point out is how could some people say LS is small when it is infact bigger than a real life city in the real world?

The horse derby track is a good reference point to calculate the size. Now, does anyone know how long a horse racing track is?

on googke earth different sizes. from 0.44 km to 0.7 km

Let's take the number in-between 0.6 km = 600m x 10 = 6km = 3,7 miles. Meaning that it is about 4 miles from the horse track to the airport.

I think you can actually fit another line (or even two if the airport continues further) into that scale.

Using this both over the width and length I get about 3,8 sqm for the entire city.

I'm calling it; Los Santos will be about 3.8 sqm (1/8 V). Making the whole map about 30,4 sqm.

Well I think 0.6km is perfect. The horsetrack seems to be the same size as the SM pier, so it's accurate.

Yep, so 3.8 sqm (6,1 kmē) for Los Santos it is. Which is 1/8 of the whole map, making the whole map 30,4 sqm (48,9kmē). Neat.

Here is another map scale comparison I've made. I took Deffpony's map comparison and scaled it to my map (with 10 m error/2150 m in length) and our results are almost the same! My reference is 1x1 km (it's a guess value) map grid.

EDIT: I can simply measure any distance on my map. Horse track is about 335 m long (outer "diameter")

Maps are in the same scale.

I made a size comparison between LC and LS using photosop's histogram (counting selected pixels).
Los Santos is 89% the size of Liberty according to it (without selecting the unknown parts of LS).

Yea i saw that before and its absolute bullsh*t. That guy calculated it by how far he ran in X amount of time instead of just walking from point A to point B in a straight line and seeing how far it was. And he used a bunch of taxis as a measuring stick! Dafuq????

Looks like it. I'm satisfied with 30,4sqm entire map size. However I'd rather LS be about 5/6 sqm..

While I appreciate that my point may not have been as clear cut, I was specifically addressing his observation that, even with the water removed from IV's map, the islands clumped together clearly still hold more mass than the entire LS map.

If you disagree with this, and you're not a fanboy or RDF, then you are one of two things: deluded, or in denial. Or possibly both.

With the water removed, from the comparison I did, they are - so far - almost the same size. If they add in another area to the south, aka Terminal island, they'll be the same size.

Sorry, but I simply don't see it. Ok, let's forget for a second that the LS map isn't equivalent in size to the entire IV map, water included (Which I was expecting nothing less tbh, which is far from an unreasonable request), and let's look at just being happy with an LS equivalent in size to LC (land mass only). Maybe I would accept that, through gritted teeth, and I'm trying my best to look at some of these comparisons (your's inlcuded), but then have a little read of this:

QUOTE (deffpony @ Friday @ May 24 2013, 18:29)
Road width, block sizes, and runway size are just not accurate forms of reference. They have too much variance and there's no way to be certain that they are reliable.

I think the boat reference was the closest tbh because it used two models that are fairly equal. It shows LC being slightly bigger than my comparison but I think it's fair to say that it's accurate


I firmly believe Deffpony's comparisons are the most reasonable and accurate, and no, I'm not saying this for some way of backing up my beliefs. If anything, I'd want pony's comparisons to be nothing short of ludicrous, but at the same time, I ain't going to bullsh*t myself.

Exactly. But it appears that so many in this thread are far too easily satisfied, and are prepared to accept, defend, and even praise the developers for such shortcomings.

They remind me of the fanbase of a certain annually released fps game.

Come now, Scottish Guy. Be nice! tounge2.gif


Oh believe me, this is me trying to be subtle, with great difficulty I might add, given some of the posts I come across in here! This forum definitely tests you lol

Tbh, in many ways its the BHC, or anti-RDF guys or whatever who remind me of the CoD fanbase as none of the BHC are willing to put their money where their mouth is. CoD fanboys will complain about Treyarc vs. Infinity Ward, or DLC, but they can't help but buy it all in the end, giving Activision their nefarious power.


The difference here is, is that we're not complaining about the game as a whole in general, we are simply displaying our dissatisfaction for a certain aspect, albeit a pretty important aspect, of the game. So we're not talking about boycotting the game or anything ridiculous like that. So please, stop suggesting this.

Props to The Scottish Guy for being one of the few to keep a cool head consistently.


Like I explained to Dick Valor, it can be extremely testing at times lol, but cheers anyway mate!

I'm calling it; Los Santos will be about 3.8 sqm (1/8 V). Making the whole map about 30,4 sqm.


This seems very plausible indeed, which taking everything into account, is our game going backwards, not forwards in respect to city size. This is exactly why I'm a little pissed off here.

@The Scottish Guy
Check out the previous page. We did a couple of measurements and determined LS to be about 3.8 sq/km. Somebody posted another image that shows that the visile area so far is 90% of LC. So I think we can all safely say that the landmasses of both cities are the same size.

I think that's pretty accurate. Deffpony can back his estimates up, so I think that is by far the most accurate so far.

I don't think people should be calling people names just because they are satisfied with the city size. It's all relative and it doesn't make them R* a** kissers. Some people are just excited and have different preferences. I for one am extremely excited to see what they've done with the transition from city to countryside.

Is anyone else disappointed at the size of the airport?

I don't understand why Rockstar just couldn't make the city a lot bigger, they were building the biggest game anyway. If they would have done this we wouldn't have this whole discussion. Now I think there will be always people who will not be happy with the city.

For the last time OG, you too GKP, I wasn't an RDF member from the start. I just speculated the size of Los Santos would be the size of Liberty City with Alderney but without Bohan. I never said I was correct, there was no wrong or right opinions for me. I just expressed disrespect towards you two because you two, especially GKP, we getting a little annoying.


@ Kifflom

Please my friend, read my posts properly before shooting your mouth off and saying the wrong things.

I said you and dewan200 were RDF allies. Not RDF members.

You got that ?

More like a neutral...Ive said Im a bit dissapointed with the size. But I am not gonna sit here and bitch and moan and bash all day. Where will that get you?

At the end of the day Im pretty sure all of you will play the game and enjoy it. There is still the rest of the map to see, there will be other towns in the game. Infact It appears malibu is in the game, what else would that be on the west side?

Why do you want LS to be bigger than LC? Bigger doesn't mean better. It would be boring to drive around a city this big. It would also make LS less uniqe and there would be more similar looking streets. I don't see how this is better. I'm so glad Los Santos is gonna be a bit smaller than LC. It's gonna be perfect

@kasa: Please no. I never want to see a GTA city bigger than LC from IV. It would be so incredibely boring. GTA cities are not about size, but about diversity and unique spots. If you want gigantic cities GTA clearly isn't for you

tbh I rather have it too big then too small, and Im also about diversity but not in very small portions which im afraid of right now, or neighbourhoods being left out (neighbourhoods like Watts, South East LA)

also I think people understimate maye what there is too do in the desertarea. What can happen there more then in a city? I think it will get boring after a while

@73Duster Grammar/punctation has nothing to do with 'being smart', substantive debate does.

Now let's just get back on topic, shall we. This is no debate about grammar nor punctuation, but about the size of Los Santos. Keep it at that.

I WAS about the size of LS. Now it's become more of a psychological dick measuring contest about who's smarter and correct in their believe...

The city area of my map appears to be scaled fairly well and the landmarks I've place are decent. The angles of everything in the countryside in relation to the city match well with the screenshots, so there's a chance the countryside is scaled well on my map.

user posted image


I only mapped the areas they showed. I didn't add any areas to fill the entire estimated land mass. At the size I have it, my map has approximately 15.5 square miles of land. That means there could still easily be a significant piece of land as big as 5 square miles somewhere - possibly to the north in an area they didn't show to the media during the previews. I believe CVG said they only saw around a 280 degree view of the map.

I feel there's a decent chance they're hiding something because it doesn't make sense for them to have revealed as much of the city in such an unimpressive way this soon if that was all there was as far as city area.
