The light house is all on it's own right now. We really don't know where or even if it is part of GTA V. It could just be a simple scene they made for the teaser, because it was pretty barren, no trees, etc. But it did have a road.... hmmmm. On my map I just stuck it far to the northwest for now.

Hey Choco, where would you place the lighthouse seen in the Epsilon screensaver on your map?

I have no idea where it is at this point. It could be just about anywhere.

OK so apprently, we're gonna be busy next week.

3 new trailers and probably a lot of new screenshots mean we have to be ready !

It's too bad it's next week cause I was on holiday this week and had plenty of time to kill.

Anyway, the good news is that wednesday is a day off here in France so I hope we'll get

all the interesting stuff before that date.

 

I want to all to have a nice non tiring weekend so you can all be on your best shape for next week.

I don't want any of you getting drunk or there will be sanctions !

Nice weekend my friends wink.gif

Look forward to it. I should have a little bit of spare time and will map out the new material where possible as well.

Can't be, as we have seen this mountain more than once and the mountain to the left of it is definitely larger.

It could be a lot farther away. The picture I posted shows that it's behind the mountain to the left.

Hope your hopes are not too high. I remember the character presentations in IV years ago. These videos have not been longer than 1 minute each and just showed the character without seeing lots of other things.

I hope these 3 trailers won't be the same. I haven't even watched every video of these presentations of IV, because they were also not well done.

 

Hope you won't burn the cars in Paris like these idiots did last year (?) in the suburbs on 1st May. wink.gif

But weren't those unplayable characters? This time it's three protagonists so they all could potentially have gameplay footage in their respective trailers.

Los Santos is a whole lot different from Liberty City. My guess is that each character shows a different part of the city. Michael's trailer will give us a better look at the Beverly Hills area, Franklin's will give us East/South Los Santos and while Trevor's will probably show us mostly out-of-tone stuff, I think we might get a glimpse at the city from an airplane or something.

didnt know where else to place this so.... heres my size comparison of LS vs. LC (streets/placement/orientations are not to scale, only the overall outline/circumference is): user posted image

 

PS: The brown mountain area still counts as LS, i am just to lazy to draw suburban/residential streets to represent the neighborhoods....

Looks a little too big to me. I think LS is just a little smaller than Dukes and Algonquin together.

Ok so I live in California and today I took a train ride from San Diego to LA then a bus ride from LA to Bakersfield and into Fresno... After taking the 5 Freeway North, I think I know where Grapeseed got its inspiration from and where it will be in the game.

 

Here is Grapevine, a small town area nestled in the mountains (elevation is 1499): http://s15.postimg.org/f4iffpkiz/7766f6e64...d975876d26f.png All of this land is FLAT, elevated FLAT LAND that is all farm land... Everything to the right of the road is either a crop or a wine field.

 

It is miles and miles of crops, wineries, oranges, etc... http://s24.postimg.org/qhpxm6pid/5506921914_a3171475e3.jpg

 

This pic might sway more people: http://s8.postimg.org/lljx6fw85/ca_tip_02p_farm.jpg

 

One more pic:

http://s15.postimg.org/uxj91syzv/display.jpg

 

If this is indeed the place where Rockstar got their inspiration for Grapeseed then this could possibly means two things:

 

1. Grapeseed is NOT near malibu, it will be way way way north, and it won't be near the ocean.

 

2. San Francisco IS in the game and that is Rockstar's big big big surprise. Could GTA V possible be R* version of ALL of California?

 

Sorry folks, but I can't let go of the Bay Area just yet....

 

We have wineries way way way north in the Central California area and a lighthouse that belongs near the bay area. Too many coincidences imo.

 

Thoughts?

all i did was fill in the water of LC and added a little to the south confused.gif

 

honestly saying Algonquin+Dukes is a laughable... Rockstar wouldn't dream of daring to do something so stupid. Worst case scenerio LS=LC, best (at this point) LS>LC not by much

Very stupid comment. You'll also look even more stupid when the game comes out. People are already thinking LS is smaller than LC. Get a grip and wait till the game comes out.

Don't worry. That's not my style but this will probably happen again this year.

It's become kind of a (stupid) tradition.

Besides I live 2 hours from Paris and I'll be busy watching those trailers over & over again biggrin.gif

This thread will blow up next week. Im still wondering whats out in the countryside. So far it seems like the city is in the extreme south and everything is just north.

 

Also, I have an idea for how the map gets revealed ingame. Something like San Andreas would be nice, but the map wouldn't be visible at all until you visit that area.

That's laughable, LS alone will be the same size is LC (minus water) if not bigger.

Your comparison has got me very excited for the city. I completely agree with the size but seeing streets put together, even if it's just a rearrangement of LC, gives a feeling of the proper scale.

I agree, but dudes on this forum act like it's the impossible to make a city larger than LC.

 

Oh well.... since everyone insisted that LS=LC, i decided to make a map that's shows this to remind people that even that is HUGE! Remember some of the city is literally ON the mountains so the urban center isn't where it stops.

 

Honestly it's just for size comparison of LS vs. LC. Streets/placement/orientations are not to scale, only the overall outline/circumference is.

Pretty sure they said in an interview that the city part was smaller than GTAIV's.

Actually, forget that, I think that was about the downtown part.
