Mapping Los Santos! Building/landmark analysis

I put alot of effort in making a possible map. Each area is in relation to what we know so far. After I finished it I had a look at Fidos

and realized that we're on the same track. colgate.gif

The wind farms I think have to be behind the oil rig to the east because the green foliage is similar to the foliage behind the oil rig in the evening shot.

 

Notice the Oil rig is pointing towards the west from the shot in the trailer slightly off kilter the downtown buildings.

 

The shoreline takes up 1/4 of the perimeter.

 

'Tommy V's' building as suggested by sonofugly can be seen in the oil rig shot. I think thats the building where he was standing earlier on in the trailer.

 

Golf course could MAYBE be in that area because the US bank is on the left (in the Golf course shot) and an unknown circular building is on the right.

When I have access to a pc, rather than crappy laptop im going to mod the SA map to how I think V will be laid out, got a clear idea of what I think it will look like.

So you want to update LS with the new spots from the trailer? Sounds good enough to me

Yeah, I figure while it will have changed (alot), things should be in about the same place.

So may we get a list of Los Angeles neighborhoods that we have (unofficially) confirmed to be in the game through our amazing research?

 

Hollywood

West Hollywood

Downtown

Santa Monica

Venice Beach

Beverly Hills

East Los Angeles (East Los Santos)

Koreatown (Little Seoul)

just read Venice will be called "Vespucci Beach" and Muscle Beach will be called "Muscle Sands" @ G4.com

US bank is located in downtown L.A.

I keep coming back to this thread and I'm even more amazed with what you guys are coming up with. This is the kind of speculation I've been waiting for once GTA V was announced - again, great job.

 

I'd love to try and help but, as a resident of the UK, I'm not so useful with LA, I'll keep my eyes open though.

 

EDIT: As was said above, this needs to be stickied!

i haven't seen ANYBODY comment on the building on the right corner of the trailer at 0:31... in the I-5 shot... I've seen the building before somewhere in a movie or something. My first instinct was that it was a hotel in the city of Las Vegas... but i could be wrong. SOMEONE HAS TO HAVE SEEN THAT BUILDING BEFORE!!!!!!!!!

It has been discussed and someone already figured out what it was http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtop...st&p=1060835174

The I-5 runs through LA (San Diego to Seattle) not Vegas..the I-15 goes through Vegas onto Salt Lake City

I swear that looks JUST like a portion of the 5 in Irvine or Anaheim in Orange County, far outside the city limits of Los Angeles. I just can't point out that exact building. Anyone agree with me? Maybe this means they will include Orange County in the game? No.....I'm not going to jump to conclusions. confused.gif

 

Plus the "Downtown" and "Little Seoul" signs on the freeway make me think otherwise.

I know it's in Los Santos because the game is in Los Santos!!! I'm trying to figure out where i've seen that building IN REAL LIFE... It resembles a real life building which i think I've seen in Las Vegas, but LIKE I SAID, I'm not sure...

 

and the link that was supposed to have figured it out... had the building to the left of it, NOT THE ACTUAL BUILDING!!! DID YOU SEE THE PIC I POSTED!!!

I know I've driven by those buildings you guys mentioned, but I just don't recall where. I also recall the freeway overpass in the screenshot, but again, I don't remember where. Give me a little more time and I'll get to it when I get back from the gym.

 

Btw, I was in downtown last night but I couldn't really see some of the buildings in the distance. If I get the chance tomorrow, I'll try to get some pictures of LA looking from the Hollywood Hills, looking specifically for GTA buildings.

No! Indication of a small map! sad.gif

How is that indication that the map is small? Rockstar Games stated in the official press release that GTA V is the biggest and most ambitious game they've ever developed.

 

Look at this map of Los Santos in GTA: San Andreas... the Observatory is much closer here than it appears to be in V, plus it's in a totally different position.

user posted image

(the observatory is on the brown spot on the map)

 

The map is going to be completely different and much bigger then just the "Los Santos" area from GTA: San Andreas.

 

(Oh and I put that Griffith Observatory comprarison image together, by the way. smile.gif)

I think Rockstar just used google earth to make southern cali. But changed the

names of it to spoof the places and added some of there stores to the game.

So this map will really be the big one if they just took images from google earth.

I just hope they include Bel Air and Beverly Hills, which I'm sure they will.
