I hope this belongs into this thread:
Just did a quick comparison to the hiker scene in trailer #1 and the final look at Mt. Chiliad. They are not 100 % accurate (weather is quite different, angle is quite different):
I think it's quite disappointing what R* did to that area.
Got a feeling that behind Mt. Chiliad there was a large forest area. It doesnt look like there was a highway in trailer #1. Look at those trees and the vegetation. I think that area was WAY different in the beta version.
They changed the Chiliad area drastically, I also got a feeling that they resized the mountain. The angle/point of view in These comparisons may be different, but it seems to me that in the hiker scene the mountain was way bigger and further away. When I first saw trailer #1 I thought we would be just a small dot on this massive mountain... the reality is way different.
What do you think?
Good shot, the mountain in the trailer looks way better. Why???
I guess it's draw distance, or the added trees near the top that makes it look closer in the final version. They should've put those trees where they originally belonged. And I don't see why they changed the type of tree neither, final ones looks like they're more laggy, they use more sheets textures.
