Mr. Wayne Kerr, where can i find the vineyards shown in the 1st trailer (where the guys start coughing), and in 1 or 2 screenshots? I simply cannot find that area anywhere! Was it removed? Im talking about this: http://www.rockstargames.com/V/screenshots/screenshot/865-1280.jpg

 

The mansion in the screenshot is the orange roofed building in the aqua square.

I assume it's the same vineyard from the first trailer, but there are a few in that area.

31834 Broad Beach Rd. This one was hard to find. Stumbled upon it by chance as it's not on the water in real life.

The guide I got on my iPod only has like 7 pages! People are saying it's 100+ pages, and there's all these screencaps of pages I don't have and I'm gonna burn my iPod down.

 

Anywho, I can't believe Josiah is that huge! :O

 

And sadly, I can't look for it. I can't afford the game right now, and my Xbox just got broken by a friend (he got drunk and put my Xbox on the floor while I was sleeping, accidentally stepped on the disc drive and... yeah. He's dead.), so I'm relying on people here to help me out with this! HEEELP!

@Wayne Kerr, @koeklin: Great finds! (How do you do this? You PAUSE the game?? ;))

 

The mountain with the hikers is Mt. Chiliad. I still have to make it to the exact same spot, so there's no photo yet, but if you find Dignity Village (north of Chiliad, easy to miss, but it's on the map) and look up, you can see where it must be: up south from there, looking southwest.

Well... As said Nico "life is complicated":

I have a son... a kind of Jimmy (Michael's son)... a FPS player too (he usually plays Call of Duty)... however he's a good kid... And now he becomes a GTA fan. So we share the Playstation and the game.

 

An advice: don't have kids!

 

Downtown: L.A Center Studios

 

This building of GTAV is based on

  • Luxe City center hotel (skin)
  • L.A. Center Studios (shape)

Wow guys !!!

All those buildings you found today that's amazing !!!!

I saved all of them on Google Earth but I still need to add them to my map.

By the way, I'm starting to wonder if it's still worth doing ?

Maybe I should start working on something else, like a database of IDed buildings.

Kind of like on iGTA5 with their landmark page.

 

I was thinking of doing all that on the GTA Wiki. That way, we could all participate in

the creation of that database.

 

Tell me what you guys think.

Yes, you're right. If we wanted to do it, we could definitely make the most comprehensive map of LS/BC, with links to images/maps/streetview for all landmarks.

 

Whatever it's going to be, I think it should be based on R*s satellite map. It's one of the best official game maps I've ever seen.

 

I can make a sketch of how that could work, once I'm a bit less busy with that game... ;)

I second that notion. Something with an easy interface. Maybe if you hover the mouse over a landmark, it would show the name.

 

Fido, you should definitely keep going. It helps track down where the landmarks are exactly.

 

Been trying to track this one down. No luck so far.

@ lxr.

Don't laugh, but I actually take a photo of the TV screen.

My kids normally get on the PS3 when they get home from school, so during the day I drove around Chumash & took a photo of all the houses & buildings in the area.

That way I can still locate things while they are playing.

I was sitting on the coffee table yesterday with the controller in one hand & a camera in the other, just snapping away.

My wife walked in, took one look at what I was doing, then shook her head in disgust, mumbled something about being obsessed, then walked out. :D

 

The sad part is, when my kids went to bed, I still continued to look for more houses rather than actually play the game.

Not sure if it's been done yet. But could someone maybe re-create the location of this screenshot, if you have the game?

Sorry for the bad quality of this picture. I can't use snapmatic tonight.

This one is at 25350 Malibu road, Malibu in real life.

Looks a bit run down in the game. Located twice in Chumash.

Good lord wayny! I didn't know you were so dedicated in finding buildings.

You'rE worse than me :D

But kudos for all the finds on Malibu. I guess there aren't much houses left to find in Chumash now.

 

About the map, an interactive one with a pic popping up when you slide the mouse over a building would be the best thing.

But I don't know how to do that at all. I can provide pics and locations but I can't do the publishing part. Do you guys know how to do this?

Maybe I should contact the guys over at GTA.net?

 

And I agree that the satellite map is the one that needs to be used now.

Goodbye my old map, it was a good run, you made me proud :p

Yeah, I'm not sure if it's dedicated or pathetic, but I enjoy it.

Also, when you're on a roll, it pays to keep going. Found a couple more which I'll post soon.

 

About the interactive map. I have absolutely no idea how to help with any of that.

I didn't know how to embed a picture 2 or 3 months ago. :lol:

I can help out with some of the "grunt" work if needed, but when it comes to the technical stuff, I'm pretty useless.

Real life 22426 Malibu Road, Malibu.

In the game it appears twice, basically unchanged from each other.
