| Why is everyone waiting on this unproven, unprestigious group of guys to make a map? They have no special pedigree and have no special info over anybody else. As a matter of fact, they are just a bunch of guys (fans like us) who happened to make a youtube channel that someone started to follow, as well as several others? So why are so many so excited about them? They have no special information, EVER.|
Nice work on their map, but it is grossly inaccurate based off of information we know. The GTA V Forums community of mappers is eons better then what they produced in terms of accuracy.
...they've seen the game in action. They were invited to see the live demo together with IGN and a bunch of other gaming websites and magazines.
GTAForums is also an "unproven, unprestigious group of guys and no special pedigree with no special info".
...and even IF they had not seen the game in action, why not freaking let them make their map predictions aswell?
Their map predictions? They used xrcore's map that he made about a week ago.
If they saw the map why didn't they make a new one? If I saw the map for a split second the one thing I would have remembered is the shape of it. But as I said their map has exact same shape as xrcores map.
They took inspiration and used part of the layout from his map, yes, but they didn't copy it straight of, also the general layout of that map should be fairly close to the real deal, so it's not "his" map... the level designers at Rockstar North made the map. What are you guys going to do when the game comes out... say that Rockstar North just copied your fan made maps, and that yours are better? Lol.
Look at them again. The Alamo Sea layout isn't identical, and neither is the entire outskirts of the map. Sure some of the roads are very similiar, but who gives. There's not enough screens from out in the countryside to map the roads and towns there perfectly. If someone makes a good layout that fits with the overall assumption of the area And it looks like what they saw when they viewed the live demo of the game, it's better to use it.
They credited everybody in the GTAForums mapping thread. If anybody else would've made a reply in that thread and change or make a map similiar to "xrcore's map" would you still have said that they ripped his map of? Knowing theese forums alot of guys problably would have, lol.
