 I'm sorry but I just realized they had a very ''good'' strategy of enlarging the map by throwing in a lot of empty mountains that are very big and too narrow to even climb properly on them

 

They removed over 90% of the trees in some areas and apart from Mt Chiliad all the other mountains seem to have been thrown there just for the sake of making the map bigger, the only thing you'll see is some bushes and flowers here and there, you barely see a couple trees in some spots 

 

There is only one forest close to Mt Chiliad but even that one is small and doesn't really feel like a forest or like a remote place. I was watching the trailers and screenshots saying '' Ah there aren't too many trees around but it's ok'' only to find out they even removed a lot of them

 

And I ain't talking about trees only but also more details like all sort of cabins and variations in the terrain.....I don't know, it just doesn't feel like the wilderness we've been promised and I still remember R* saying that ''is definitely not a large emty world'', well yeah the city and a few othe places are not empty but the mountains that take a big chunk are just like that...

 

If you have something to say, say it but please, don't come with things like '' Wot da f*ck, are yo really complainin' about trees??, that doesn't really matter, it's not important '' cause I swear I heard that about every seingle negative aspect about the game, if nothing matters then might as well go back and play GTA 3.

I agree . The more I learn the map the more empty it becomes . I get pissed everytime I come to a locked door .

Rockstar really should have made a another city instead of all that countryside. I would have been happy with San Fierro or a fictional San Diego at least.

The countryside is great but at parts it does defo feel a bit sparse

 

Still, at least it makes a good playground, better than having nothing at all other than a city - the potential is there for mods in the future too I guess

Our mountains and coastline in SoCal are lousy with trees. Only in the desert highlands is it sparse.

Have you guys just taken a vehicle and drove it through the mountains? If you have not, do it, jumping from ridge to ridge has made for some of the best times I have ever had in GTA, and I do not think it would be possible if the area was littered with trees. A baron, hilly terrain is something supposed to be just that, BARON, little to no activity.

 

Stop looking at it as a "strategy" of Rockstar being lazy, and start looking at it as a playground, and I assure you, you will enjoy it much more.

I still liked having the countryside and wilderness in GTA V, but I think there was too much of it, and the fact that there was not much to do in it kind of made it worse. I would have preferred a smaller version of it with another major city like San Fierro or fictional San Diego, and a more detailed Los Santos with more accessible interiors.

I see where you're coming from. Is it better to simply have something there rather than nothing, but the map does seem a lot more detailed than it actually is in some places.

This decision by Rockstar would have been better if the offroad vehicles were more capable. You know, how a sport car gets more traction up the mountain than a 2wd, should be 4wd truck. A monster truck with great traction and a roll cage would be insane in the backcountry. Maybe DLC.

it all feels like it serves no point a forest as decoration

 

i wanted a forest you could get lost in with a cabin in it that felt remote from the rest of the game where you spent a duration of missions

what are you people talking about?The countryside is amazing and full of things to see.I always discover something new.Of course there are bare mountains,what did you expect to find there?Do you even explore anything from up close or you just fly over with a jet?

I'm pretty sure rural areas have a tendency to be less populated than cities the size of LA... you know... just sayin'

 

By the way, if you think the countryside is absolutely empty, show me 1 good place you can land a plane in Blaine County... NOT on a runway... because the desert is populated with so many small communities and shacks and what not, there is just NO empty space to land huge planes

 

I was actually hoping for more empty/vacant forest and desert spaces...

exactly!

 

Everything is too populated/unique(which I like).Also,bare mountains give a sense of SCALE to the map.

I still think the countryside is decent, and very detailed. 

 

But I sort of agree when you say it doesn't feel like a wilderness. It doesn't. You never feel more than 2 minutes from the centre of Los santos (and you can actually see it a lot of the time). And weren't there supposed to be bears?! haha

Some cabins in the mountains you could enter could've made it a bit more fun indeed. What happened to the bears in RDR? Why didnt they include some more cool animals in the wilderness?..

I just walked outside and noticed that 100% of everything is accessible. I can climb on top of any structure or enter any building. I'm going to climb the huge power poles down the road and jump off to see what hospital I wake up in. Rockstar were very lazy, I agree. The real world has far more things.

Agreed, I've already found loads of spots and ideas for some awesome racing to be had.

Well I get your point, my problem is that there are too many empty places where like I said, you can barely climb, the vegetation is just too poor since they scrapped a lot of it. I don't want the whole county to be completely covered in trees but I don't want them to be completely lacking in most places either, that's why it's ''untouched wilderness'' even after all and not some fields to make costum races and other events

I'll probably spend a lot more time creating races than playing online, that's for sure. There's several locations around the lake and river that are just BEGGING to be raced.

It definitely does, but a completely new one not just the old one ported, but that is very unlikely to happen
