So... how long does it take to drive all around the map? I don't think we've tried to calculate that yet.

Lets say that means to make a full circle on the outermost highways, at a constant speed of 100 mph (= 161 kmh).

*If* the map is 9.6 by 12 km (= 44.5 sq mi, close to Magic Al's estimate, see here and here), and *if* zombie elvis' highway layout is correct (it's slightly speculative for most parts of the map), and *if* my method of measurement is not too retarded (a string of 277 circles with 100 m diameter, ignoring on- and off-ramps), then...

... it takes about 10 minutes and 20 seconds

Didn't IGN already say that it takes an hour to get to the other side of the map?

Considering we don't know the full extent of the map yet It's pointless trying to guess this, also you're using a map that's obviously fake.

Now good luck driving at 100 mph constantly. Even 10 minutes is damn long. If you did this in IV, it would take probably 1 minute (at the speed mentioned).

LOL basing your retarded opinions on a fake map.. i bet u felt really smug that you 'worked out' that calculation as if u made some scientific break through. 10 minutes around a whole map?! LOOL! try doing that in red dead redemption or even san andreas.. you'll get no were in 10 minutes.

now f*ck off with ur stupid opinion cuz ur idiotic post really annoyed me

10 minutes is ages, as compared to a few minutes in GTAIV and GTAIV is still plenty big enough to enjoy.

But it will be more probably, who knows we have weak information.

LOL thats not true... it took more than that to drive around GTA IV's map, and GTA V's map its three times bigger so thats impossible.

Do you guys realize.. that driving for an hour across the map is something even Test Drive Unlimited couldn't do.. and that is one of the largest game worlds i have ever played on!

Heck i can go in 10 minutes from Los santos to Las Venturas in SA.

IGN said it took about an hour to get all the way across the map, and they actually played the game. As someone else mentioned, it seems like Dan or Sam Houser also said the same thing.

If that's the case, it might take like 5 minutes to get from one side to the other in a jet, and that is good enough for me. The map is big, why can't we all just realize that?

One thing I really don't know about all this Mapping LS thing is the scale people are using. I think what's off here is the scale and there might be parts of the map that extend the map even further that we don't know about. They're doing an awesome job but I can't see R* revealing all the map and having people decode it immediately even with the achievements leak, I think they're smarter than that to not do it in screenshots. I feel like there's a chunk of map we haven't seen that will make this quite bigger but don't quote me on that, I haven't followed Mapping LS completely.

But one of the screenshots that compared a ped with the mountains and all that just makes me think this is much bigger than what Mapping LS shows.

Bullsh*t... It's about an hour to get from the one to the other side of the map! I remember when Dan Houser said that!

10 minutes while driving 100mph is huge. Lol at people who think it's gonna take an hour, I'm pretty sure it didn't even take an hour to drive across Just Cause 2.

I doubt it's going to take more than 25 minutes at most of driving at a steady pace.

it'll definitely take around 30 minutes considering gta iv took longer than 10, and los santos itself is as big as all of GTA IV...

I doubt it'll be 10 minutes, more like 15-20 minutes.

taking 10 mins to circle the map while going 100mph on the surrounding freeway is pretty impressive. it would never take an hour, stop f*cking dreaming.

Theres no reason for this to have its own thread. You quoted a speculative estimation by another user.

the biggest flaw in his estimation is the fact that the map isnt level. Either way we dont know how long it will take.
