Mapping Liberty City (Laying Out Liberty City)

Recommended Posts

acmoore4

OK, my goal here is to start mapping out Liberty City based on what we know, a tough task, but worth the effort. I am going to attempt to mock-up a primitive map based on the proximity of re-occuring buildings and signs in the trailer.

 

My first effort, the geography of times square.

notice the tower on the left, four distinct signs on it, one (green) says everything at a price, see it? Note the colors of the signs, green, pink, yellow and green, and note the "logger beer" sign to the left of the tower.

this is the "times square" of Liberty City. Notice far off down the street is the same tower, same alternating signs, green, pink, yellow and green, with the logger beer sign to the left, making this POV down the same street in an unknown direction.

this photo is the key to discerning what direction streets in the trailer are pointing, notice the N,S,E,W pole on the pinnacle of the church.

In real life the streets that make up Times Square go in the North and South directions, so these two screenshots are probably facing either North or South.

notice the silver building near the center, the top is under construction, and the four corners are rounded off.

the same building appears in the bottom left corner of this shot

and this shot

and I believe its to the right of the "color tower" in this shot

 

based on the proximity of the "construction building" in the 3rd shot to the "flat-iron" building and the presence on the "CB" in times square,

it can be assumed that as in the real NYC, the flat-iron building is not far from Times Square itself.

sorry to get off topic, you are doing a superb job

but the white truck in the time sqaure photo looks like a ford sport track or whatever they are called.....look at the

bed and you can see three black handles just like the fords...

The end result of this should be quite interesting icon14.gif , good job so far - figuring out where buildings are etc.

 

Oh, and going a bit off topic here too - I'm debating whether or not that white pickup has it's brake lights on or an indicator (light does look kinda orange...)

 

EDIT: Forget the whole indicator thing - the front one isn't on so it must just be the brake light

So we get two clues from this. As already stated, New Jersey might be in the game and the game is in current time, hence why the ferry terminal is unused.

 

Good notice about the light. It looks like a break light with an indicator on top. Who knows of the indicator actually works though.

Well here's what I'm almost certain is the Hearst Magazine building, it might help your mapping.

notice the building at the center of this shot with the black triangle slashed across the top.

 

user posted image

 

It appears to the right of the GetaLife building as well

 

That would place it somewhere northeast of the "Empire State Building"

 

between the ESB and the Chrysler Building

 

(note the angle going in opposite directions, indicated we are seeing two seperate sides of the buildind.

 

This also places the GetaLife building between the Chrysler and ESB.

Assuming that R* is following the NY layout, I give you a map with the four locations we know of.

One thing to note is that the two towers to the right of the Liberty Ferry Terminal are also in the final shot, to the left of the bridge.

Whoa, worthy of a pinnage any time! Great work man!

 

If this is only the area around Times Square it means that Liberty will be much bigger than what we expected.

Good job, though it seems as if 'Manhatten Island' in this game is a lot smaller than it's real counterpart, and probably a similar size if not smaller to Staunton Island.

this is the "times square" of Liberty City. Notice far off down the street is the same tower, same alternating signs, green, pink, yellow and green, with the logger beer sign to the left, making this POV down the same street in an unknown direction.

This shot at 29 second is in fact pointing north. Note the way that the shadowline on the street. Also the position of that tall light blue skyscraper gives it away. Note this building is seen about 5 times in the trailer. The two streets seen at 29 sec ar marked on the map and so if this skyscraper. I already created thread taking apart the locations of different sites and even created a map. I can't blame if anyone didn't read, it was rather long.
