In the thread about the map that just got deleted was someone who said something that made quite some sense to me...here we go:

 

- Apparently purchasable homes are not on the map. This makes sense though, watch the gameplay video and you can see that you purchase or let the website send directions to your GPS, so you can go there and see if it;s to your liking. Would it make sense to have all these purchasable homes on the map way before you even buy them?

 

- Liquor stores not on the map. Odd...but many previews said that you can rob them. So unless they were taken out last minute......they should be in.

 

- Pet stores not on the map. We never heard the bigger sites like CVG, IGN and GI talking about this, and only one or two magazines claimed they were in. Along with multiple dog breeds to choose from. Could still be in...probably bullsh*t though.

 

- Stripclubs. We can all remember Franklin in the stripclub in his own trailer and Trevor getting a lapdance in that screenshot. All in that same stripclub? I doubt that.

 

- No normal clubs, bars, restaurants? We'll have to wait and see...maybe Rockstar didn't find it nessecary to put them in, cause dating is gone and i wonder if we can hang out with friends. If not...it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to put them in.....personally i would want to see them though.

 

- Lastly....maybe i just sound hopeful and optimistic, but maybe they couldn't put EVERY damn icon on there, otherwise the map would look like one big cluttered mess?

 

I am not too worried though. Look at how huge this gameworld is, it is their most ambitious game yet, so far they have been correcting any mistake from IV...i have a hard time believing they won't make this world as interactive and fun as possible.

You're assuming the houses with dollar signs over them are the banks and not the purchasable property? Could go either way.

I'm less convinced that these we're taken out of the game than they are just not put on the map. Even in GTAIV a lot of businesses didn't get put on the map until you discovered them. Not thinking V will be different. Give us the sense of discovery.

it's probably 1 map detailing a few things just like how the hidden packages, unique stunt jumps and pickups were all seperate maps for LCS/VCS Guidebooks, or maybe an "ACT 1" map and then the next page will have "ACT 2" or something? ohwell, 6 days remain, we'll see.

i really hope clubs,bars are in. i mean they are putting everything in this game would be weird if they kept them out especially since in TBOGT everyone liked it.

 

stuff like houses or pets might be purchasable through the games internet thats why they dont have icons on the map.

I don't think anybody is stupid enough to actually believe that the map they showed had every single icon on the map, there wasn't even any properties on the f*cking map use common f*cking sense for once, you gotta be a f*cking retard if your upset about that.

Ahh I forget what game ive seen this in. Basically the map has different layers for icons and  you can toggle through them. 

 

Example: races,golfing and all that bullsh*t on one layer/ missions, heists, etc on the other.

the thing is we saw just single map from strategy guide, but there is few different maps in there showing different things. They cant just put everything on one map, it would be mess.

Or maybe, just maybe, the icons are separated into categories, because, uhhhmm, I don't know, it's taken from a strategy guide.

ATM's is very possible....but i'm only assuming here.

 

There will be more maps with more icons. Even GTA 4 map had 2 sideS. I bet the guides full of maps

The IV map was indeed two sided, but it just showed the subway system.

 

there was a strip club on the map

Yep. But only one? I find this pretty much impossible to believe. Trevor lives in a totally different area than Franklin and he's not gonna travel all the way into themiddle of the city to find that stripclub. Would not surprise me if there's one very close to his own trailer. And what about that bar in trailer 2 where we see two bums fighting? Is that one even listed?

 

 

- No normal clubs, bars, restaurants? We'll have to wait and see...maybe Rockstar didn't find it nessecary to put them in, cause dating is gone and i wonder if we can hang out with friends.

Cool! So we can still call up friends and go golf with them or tennis and whatsoever? If so, i doubt bars are out...NO WAY they take out 'getting wasted' with your friends, that sh*t was hilarious in IV.

Agreed. Still cant make a few icons out.

Exactly man. Even the gameplay video spoke of hunting as an activity.

i really hope clubs,bars are in. i mean they are putting everything in this game would be weird if they kept them out especially since in TBOGT everyone liked it.

This stuff was awesome in TBOGT, the atmosphere was absolutely fantastic in those clubs, dancing and what not.

Maybe the map we saw is specific too something? Think about it, if every icon was on the map it would be a little crowded.

 

For example, you get a map that shows all the hidden packages, a map that shows activities, a map that shows stores etc.. It is a guide after all!

Of course this is very likely, but is it 100% sure there are multiple pages for the map? I dont buy these guides so i dont know really. Also....why didn't the person leak all the maps?

You can play Fetch with Chop. Don't care for a couple shacks that are not enterable in some parts of the woods. Interaction is more key than some empty shacks you can only see and not interact with.


Obviously there will be some shacks, small towns that will enterable such as clothing, gun, etc. shops.

Golf game interactable
Cable car interactable
Hunting, bmx, cycling, hiking, triatholons, car customization, interactable
Headlamps and convertible tops interactable

You get the point....
