if i had to guess at this point, i'd put Mt Chilead more over on the eastern side of the map, and have the river for the reservoir and the dam overlooking LS running down from it or the surrounding hills. south of this i'd put the desert, leading to the edge of the Salton Sea area, which may be a separate inland sea from the pacific. obviously you wouldn't be able to go all the way round the inland sea - it'd be like the lake net to Blackwater in RDR...

To me, it looks like we simply don't have enough information yet to determine the location of Mt. Chiliad. The dam is quite easy to locate though. In the image below, the fighter jet just about shoots at it.

I think we can start mapping the wilderness knowing this.

the guy who is skydiving in that shot, his feet would be roughly pointing towards where the settlement is in the new screenshot? He's facing up the spine of the mountain, right? i mean, his feet would be pointing to the left of the new shot.

this is the same mountain in the distance, isn't it? (the one on the left in this pic) if so this shore area is pretty damn big

Compare the bridge between the skydivers feet and the one in the mid-left of the new screen, they are the same.

That isnt another island. Its the same island, just looks like a peninsula of the same location jutting out i'm afraid.

This screenshot is almost as good as a map... wink.gif

 

One thing is a little worrying though: We would routinely name the direction the evening sun is coming from (top left line, determined by looking at lights and shadows on the parachutist) "west". Yet "west", as far as we know it (bottom right line), is about 45 degrees off. So we should be a bit more cautious when trying to determine the orientation of a shot by just looking at the sun.

Can you use this to create the likely form of the map?

Could very well be Catalina island

 

B is the VT bridge.

 

SC Island could be the main scuba diving area

For me it seems like there's going to be the ocean, rivers and multiple lakes (maybe just 1).

The screenshots with the mountain and the one with Trevor aiming the gun obviously show the same "area" and IMO that looks like a lake. Not really ocean-like.

And in Los Santos we'll have a huge coastline with beaches.
