Yeah, exactly the same things we found in here. 

Not sure about 5/9 pic with the Tongva hills in the background. He's probably wrong about that one.

But I would probably pick the sama place for the island. Right between paleto bay and the city and close to the most popular hangars

He has a pretty good point though: from all we've learned about the map, the dockyard in this shot should lead out into the open ocean, but instead there seem to be a couple of hills in the horizon, and although the focus effect makes it a little hard to discern, the shaping does generally match that of Tongva. The only way for this to make sense would be either if a) the spit / tombolo / headland we see protruding out of the cove is actually much larger than it seems on the map or b) there is some other undiscovered island in the horizon that we haven't seen yet, and with both those options appearing unlikely, I do think that Reddit post is onto something.

Cayo Perico means Parrot Cay, just to be sure? With Perico also being slang for cocaine?

So I went ahead and did some scouting around Tongva hills, found a good spot for a screenshot and yep: when you overlay them, it's a very close match. The sea level doesn't quite match up because I was above water in a Frogger, but otherwise, the outline of the mountain range seems to fit very, very well.

I don't think this is right.
1. The island is rotated from the initial teaser trailer.

2. The bodies that wash up on the shore all spawn on the south end of the GTA V map, implying that the island is south of LS.

it's literally just an island and/or the airstrip on the map.

 

first, if the sa map faces this way, the island has to face the same way. otherwise that would be one convoluted and unreliable tech thing whatever in that teaser.

unknown.pngunknown.png

which makes it absolutely impossible to face it the way the reddit post thinks.

 

 

now time for my sh*tty map markings, it's already been established that the purple line is roughly the dockyard, and the big cyan blob is roughly the area where the radio tower is

unknown.png

(radio tower only marked for reference, see this shot showing the whole dock with radio tower in the distance, in bottom right of that shot you can see the crane and the roofed docks which are the exact same seen below)

 

the line to the east roughly follows the "coastline" in the trailer, same on the west side in a very similar way.

unknown.png

 

so, taking that into consideration, it appears that shot is facing roughly this way

unknown.png

 

which is directly in front of the smaller island and the airstrip in the distance (WHICH ALSO explains the tower looking thing in the far distance)

 

 

 

and finally, rockstar calls it a "remote island", implying that the island is nowhere near SA...

 

...not to mention that the drug lord wouldn't be an imbecile to set up their illegal base of operations on an island right next to a government-owned military base :facedesk:

f*ck, this actually makes a lot more sense - not that I doubt Rockstar would be impervious to adding an island to a nonsensical location like Tongva, but admittedly, it feels a tad more reasonable to consider there's probably some larger hill near that airstrip. Guess my sense of perspective was just thwarted for not expecting such a tall land mass to be there.

 

My bad then, thanks for clarifying and debunking the Tongva myth!

And considering that they had reused a bunch of props and maybe even some textures, one can assume that they also had reused an entire hill in one of their islands.

 

Also yes, we cannot for certain say that the mountain in the background is just Tongva Hills instead of just another part of the island.

I would like to remember though that the city is also full of drug lords who apparently thought it would be a great idea to set all their drug making facilities ten meters away from the main roads.

Pretty obvious stuff but this should confirm location of the mansion (notice that little rock in the water, on the left)

or like this (same place, just smaller. Its hard to see proportions)

  Reveal hidden contents

edit:
So in other words, the only things they haven't showed yet: 

  Reveal hidden contents

9jaiwyq.png

(red n blue = places from where the pictures were taken)

blue = mostly unknown I think


edit2:
And no matter if the map is a part of freeroam or not, I can see it being divided like this:

  Reveal hidden contents


eW5xGCC.png  YvdUq4F.png

Blue side = Civilians
Red side = Cartels territory

Cause it looks like those parts of the map are connected with a single road. Single road = single checkpoint.

We probably land as guests, join a party, dance a little, and sneak inside to the restricted area. 

 

 In the draw distance, if you look carefully, you can see the antenna tower. It does line up with the position of the compound on the map.

as the maker of the Post i will now try to disprove your claims and will try to beat you with your own logic. First of all the rotation of island on the map doesnt mean sh*t and we dont even know if the corpse is even coming from the island, as someone already pointed out, you only throw bodys from board, not from an island as the will swim back to the shore they came from.

 as you can surely agree, we have a good overview of the "right" part of the island from the comm picture, where we can see not only warehouses also visible in the harbor shot but also the ridge in the middle of the island and a part of the airstrip. the warehouses are definetly less than 400m away and the same goes for the comm tower in relation to the harbor. so why should the airstrip part then be several kilometres away. also all of the airstrip we see is on a flat island part no hill in sight. also the location of the sun doesnt make any sense in your logic just as it doesnt make sense to completly ignore the ridge part when drawing your arrow.  we can also  cleary see open sea before the hill in the distance. youre also ignoring the clear evidence im the trailer that are the coordinates and the matchup with tongva hills, an even better made one can even be found in this thread and it matches up perfectly especially with the maze bank sticking out. that island is also really far away from the mainland, you can believe that. TL;DR your arrow is wrong and therefore your conclusion is flawed as well. I hope you have fun and in the end we'll see who is right when the dlc comes out

I would also like to point out that I located the airport sign to be from Hacienda Napoles which was Pablo Escobar's luxurious estate built in Puerto Triumfo, in Colombia. 

 

You can see that it says "Bienvenidos a" on the sign in the back just like on the trailer. Even the colors of the gate match with the original picture.

 

There is a Spanish house on the estate but I have yet to find a good picture.

I was wondering why not just put a plane on the gate like pablo did... but rockstar is clever and this picture proves it. They have the gate and a plane flying over it instead of on it, good find!

If the island is accessible only in the heist, it does not matter where it is located 😁

Good find. Even the building is matching. So seem not to be that far away from the main Island.

Could you show the exact position of the spot where you took this picture on the Los Santos map? We could determine the exact position of the new island.

I think thats just a coincidence. You could match the same way any mountain top if you just place yourself in the right spot. Thats probably just a hill on the new island.

And the "skyscraper" is the radio tower / guards tower / water tower etc

Tbh it would probably be 2-3x farther than that. If we assume it would be a part of freeroam ofc. The farther away from the main map, the less lag they have to deal with. But knowing R*, there's gonna be a loading screen and the island is nowhere near the old map.
