Mapping Los Santos! Building/landmark analysis

Recommended Posts

Negan
I'm really hoping this trailer helps with those questions we just haven't been able to answer like where is North Yankton or more details on the military base.  The last trailer finally confirmed what those buildings were.  That bothered many of us for ages.

Since this is the "official" trailer, I'm guessing there's a lot of things we'll get answered. North Yankton might be one of those things.

No official means everything in it was taken from the GOLD version of the game. Previous trailers were made of un-finished game.

I still believe the Military base could be inspired by this one. Everything seems to fit.

This Naval Air Station is only 40km (25 miles) up the coastal highway from Malibu.

Same swampy river flat area near the coast, & there are vineyards & orchards inland & to the South, just like the in-game base.

Base is called Point Mugu NAS base in Ventura County.

I hope the official trailer doesn't tell us anything about North Yankton. Not everything about the game's locations should be known before someone has an actual copy of the game they can play.

 

I also don't really understand the obsession with North Yankton. I classify it is as an obsession because so many keep trying to locate something that can't even be located. It also wasn't an actual tease since they only way people saw the postcard was by checking the background image. On the actual page the postcard didn't even show thanks to it being behind a links bar.

@Wanker The land around the base is inspired by Carlsbad city.

Hey Fido, will you be making map updates following the Official Trailer launch in an hour? Hopefully we get some nice shots of newer locations.

Not sure about Carlsbad. Could be. Just don't say that too loud. All the San Diego believers will start up again.

The LA area seems to have lots of locations with flat, meandering rivers that meet the coast. Could be any one of them.

With the Malibu vineyards near the base, I would say it's based more on the area between Malibu & Santa Barbara.

Could be a mixture of both though. Alot of places in the game seem to be inspired by various locations & regions.

 

You spelt my name wrong btw. lol.gif

Yeah this lagoon is like a 100% copy of the real place just with army base and wineyards instead of houses. They just took most interesting places around California and scattered them around on their own.

 

I know Waynker biggrin.gif

I think you're right there Wayne considering that it looks like there's a settlement (Malibu) seen on the blueprint map down the west coast, therefore below the military base..

Of course I'm gonna update my map following the trailer.

Well, if they show us something new to map that is.

But considering how close we are already, I believe there's not much I'll be able to add.

What I do these days is just adding a few tweaks here and there like adding a new found building or

changing the shape of that road, add some part of a mountain there...

It's just small détails at this point.

But who knows ? I'm always hoping for more ! biggrin.gif

Well, geographically it's a close match, but we don't really know for sure.

I saw that base while looking for something else on google maps, & it all just seemed to make sense though.

There are literally dozens of navy & airforce bases in the SOCAL area, so it could be inspired by any one of them, or none at all.

Let me be the first to say that I didn't really see anything new. There are a few nice shots, but nothing to add to the map.

well, when we see a location from another perspective, it could be that we can identify some buildings much easier smile.gif

Pretty big buildings, is one the courthouse?

 

There is also a pretty big lit area in the top right corner.

I have had a great deal of fun participating in this hread the last couple of months and would like to start by asking for forgiveness. I refuse to read this thread anymore just in case of spoilers so I will be just throwing things I see from the new trailer out there without checking if they have been discovered already. Again, please forgive.

 

Lets start with a front view of the target from the Clucken Bell heist map.

Those are the Sheraton and Hilton LAX. We've never really had a good look at them and this isn't any better.
