Spent some time really getting to know the screens and screen captures and I have some observations. Posted them in another thread, but they are probably as a appropriate here.

 

If you look at the helicopter screen from yesterday, along with some of the screen captures from the trailer you can see that Los Santos is surrounded on 3 sides by hills/mountains and sea on the west. Using downtown as your focal point all sides of the map are visible if you combine all the shots that are currently available. Looking at the other screen from yesterday, you can clearly see downtown from the south, with the hills closing in on the east side. Has to be close to the edge of the city on the south side.

 

The helicopter shot shows Los Santos from downtown to the sea. So east to west. The oil pump capture shows Los Santos from South to North. The final shot of the trailer shows downtown from the other angle, west to east, and you can judge the distance from downtown to the hills. The second screen from yesterday shows south to north.

 

So you can already tell the size of Los Santos.

 

Based on that, if the map is the biggest ever, then there is a LOT of map that's outside of Los Santos since that city isn't bigger than Liberty. What that is we can only guess.

This city is bigger than LC if you include LS and surrounding suburbs. R* knows we wanted countryside, but they'll still gonna' make a big realistic city for those(like me) who like the city too.

If you say so. Based on what I'm seeing, the city of Los Santos (just the city portion of the map) isn't bigger than Liberty at all. Rather a bit smaller, I think. Look at the screen captures. Loook at the oil pump one and you can see how big the map is.

LC, without the water was only 6 sq miles. I doubt that LS is going to be smaller than the real LA downtown.

 

I mean this LS looks bigger. In real life LA is bigger than NY by size, so I feel this LS is going to be a it bigger, like Eagle said, 1 and 1/2 LC's. You forget, we still have many un scene areas, like the hills full of mansions, Santa Maria, the Southwest portion of LS, the Airport, South Central, the docks. There are still many un scene areas.

Oh, without a doubt. But that's kind of my point. There HAS to be more to the map than the city. A LOT more. The screens show that the city is surrounded by hills in a horseshoe. There's not a lof of SW LS that is unseen. The lagoon screen from yesterday is from SW Los Santos. Off to the right the hills close in at the east. Like I said, a horseshoe. Based on that the city isn't bigger than Liberty. It's not small, but to make the biggest map they've ever made, there would have to be a whole lot outside of Los Santos.

The lagoon scene isn't southwest LS, that's based off of Echo Lake NW of downtown, but likely just north of downtown in this LS.

Without a doubt the countryside is huger than the city, but that doesn't mean LS is smaller than LC.

 

Why do you think the city haves to be small to include a huge countryside??? You forget, you can have a lot of city and a ton of countryside. This is more than the city, duh, doesn't make LS small though.

I'm sure it's been mentioned but it's interesting to note that helicopter says "Police" and not "LSPD".....

That's not true. Of course they will, if Rockstar deems it necessary. After all, this is the pre-alpha 'build'.

The more I re-read this line from the A&A:

 

"...we just have not been in a position to show more of the game than the trailer and WILL NOT BE FOR A WHILE YET."

 

FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUU---

 

It's coming out 2013.

I dont have the energy to say what I think of all the peolpe complaining.. about the graphics or how rockstar give out news and so on. No one is forcing you to put any interest in it or buy iy when it comes out. It's not gonna come out sooner just because you want to.. its done when its done.

 

I like the way rockstar give out news.. the waiting and guesing. It makes the whole thing more fun then if we got bullsh*t news every day for five years.

 

I think the screens look nice.. and one more thing. Remember just befor they announced the trailer? They said in a Q&A that if and when they have any news they will say somewting..and then maybe just a week after the trailer announcement came. And in this Q&A it were the same thing.. so mabye mabye mabye there will be more news really soon.

 

And sorry if some on already said all this..but as less energy I have to say what I think about some people I have the same low energy to read 101 pages.. so maby my post is totally unnecessary. Mabye the rest 100 pages is about how happy everyone is.. but this post is about my toughts about this whole waiting game.

 

Well.. keep waiting! Catch ya further on down the trail

Hmm anyone thought that they might have a 3 cities marketing?

 

1st trailer and screens - Los Santos

 

2nd trailer and screens - San Fierro

 

3rd trailer and screens - Las Venturas

 

I know this doesn't seem plausible, but...

What I'm just saying is much of LS is not shown, LSX is likely the hugest neighborhood in LS and we have not scene that, nor the mansions near Vinewood, nor the docks or SW Los Santos. This LS is bigger than LC.

Oh yeah baby. Completely agree with you. If Bachman Turner Overdrive was here, you should know what they'd say. wink.gif

They'd say, "Takin' Care of Business", right?

 

I'm right aren't I?

So I bought RDR enjoyed it then I woke up yesterday I saw that we have two screen shots haven't played RDR since lol. Been reading this thread all day, day off.

 

Anyway I really like the graphics of the 2nd shot and the Heli in the first looks really cool.

 

These pics should do me for another 4 months. I only did start to complain last week with the whole GI thing blush.gif

 

Still I stand by the sig Race posted but yes like others have said I will STFU for now when it comes to ranting about no info.

Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created.

 

A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present day Southern California.

Yeah I still don't know why people still think SF and LV are going to be in the game. I have given that up as soon as R* said "Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created".

You guys have absolutely no say in the graphics anyway. It's not even worth complaining. You complain about the time it takes for info, you complain about the strategy they use despite it being the same as every other game, you complain that they spend more time talking about other games because they were closer to release than GTA V, and you complain when they give you screenshots out of nothing but kindness to the fans. They didn't have to give you those screens, they could have stuck to answering questions.

 

It makes me wonder why some people even bothing getting up in the morning if they have such a negative attitude towards everything that comes their way.

 

The graphics of San Andreas is not why people want GTA V to be more like that game, it's about the content and the gameplay. The graphics just make the experience look better, they don't make it more fun.

The screenshot of the park/pond, there are TWO obvious buildings behind a tree that are under construction. The skyline does not resemble that of Downtown Los Santos at all, from any angle we've seen yet. It also appears this park is centralized in a suburban area.

 

Where in the map is this...? ...Game is gonna be massive.

My guess is it is probably the same blimp as we can clearly see in the trailer next to the downtown area.
