Never noticed this before. They just add this or am I just blind?

I spotted them in a daytime sky last week, so I don't think they're new for 1.11.  But I hadn't noticed them before that point so perhaps they haven't always been there?

Even now I sometimes see weather effects in GTA ive never seen, and ive spent days in Southern San Andreas. Some effects ive only seen once or twice, like the thunderstorms (caught only one lightning strike, but seen more flashes), or this one time where it went super foggy, and some kind of alarm went off on the piers. And sometimes I would be driving around, and even though its a videogame, you just cant help but pull over and look at a sight like this:

They have been there since day 1 when the skies are clear.  Looks like a Scottish Saltire flag when there is a clear blue sky.  Don't know if it's a conicidence or an Easter Egg seeing as R* are a Scottish company.

Actually they are an American company with studios around the world.

technically they are just white lines in a digital sky, they aren't anything.

 

But if your asking what they are simulating, then yes, they are simulating Chemtrails, since contrails don't persist for hours on end, or spread out and become cloud banks.

 

If you fly to a non-Nato country, you will notice they have the same amount of air traffic but no lines across the sky like they do here in the states.

You might want to check that.

 

At the last check, Edinburgh is not in America, nor is Dundee where they started off.

The Angel King, you are a fool. ROCKSTAR NORTH develop the game and they are based in scotland, they made all the major chunks of all GTAs. The only thing NYC rockstar do is publish the games, and went out and took photos for GTAIV research which they then sent back to scotland. Rockstar North are the original developers as before they were called Rockstar they were called DMA design and made games like Lemmings before GTA.
GTA is not made by americans. You should realise by the amount of heavy satire against the US thats put into most GTAs. Sure the voice acting work and such is outsourced to New york acting schools and the like because sam and dan have lived in NYC for a long time now. Rockstar North still developed the game. And still do develop the game.

GTA - the united kingdoms greatest franchise and the reason Scotland should stay in the kingdom...not that I blame the scots for wanting to leave because I want to leave. Can I comelive in scotland? Im feeling like if I linger outside Rockstar North for long enough they might give me a job...

Angel I will tell you a complete fact... Most every real GTA fan knows its developed in scotland.

No it's not, few weeks after game release some idiots with their jet pack hunt were saying the center of the cross could link to an important area

You're laughing but there are some riddles scattered around the island that indicate that X marks the spot. When I first saw the contrails guess what I did?

I've had 45days playtime in the first 2months and I only noticed them after 1.10

On another note, where the hell do you live? Those are fumes from airplanes, you never seen one flying high in the sky before?(irl)
