People keep forgetting that the size stated included interior as well as exterior. For all we know, they could have done a shit load of interior.

What do you use to make these maps Fitty?


Inkscape. I make .svg files so I can basically zoom in or make a huge image if I wanted. I started using Inkscape a couple years ago when I started making this.

I did that not too long ago, Parker. Had no idea what the fuck I was doing and gave it up.

It's quite different than Photoshop. It takes a little more time to make something but usually easier to alter things afterward. I actually made a GTA IV-style version of the GTA V map pretty quickly since it's easier to alter colors. :P

The streets seem to spaced out in Fitty's map but otherwise it is the best map I have seen that is complete. I saw 95% of the real map somewhere on this site.

Okay, I'm convinced Rockstar has either accidentally used structures [far] outside of Southern California or they are really stretching their "reimagination" of it.


First is the rail bridge. Since the first screenshot of it the only match I found was one in Canada - a very good match. I had searched Google 10 different ways for a rail bridge in Southern California and it actually popped up in the image results for "truss arch rail bridge california". The real bridge is Stoney Creek Bridge in British Columbia:

Now here's what I was looking at just now. In this next screencap you can see a motel in the background (individual yellow boxes with the letters and some signage under it including a red arrow). Searching Google for "route 66 motel california" brings up an image of an almost exact motel sign for Glancy Motel which is on historic Route 66. The problem is that it's in Oklahoma.

There have been a few others that I can't think of off-hand where a similar structure was a little far from Southern California.

So much for the on-site investigations of sites in and around Los Angeles Rockstar said they did.

It looks like they just did a bunch of image searches, instead of actually scouting any real locations...

I have no doubts that they traveled around Southern California. It's more of a question "Did they fuck up or did they fill in a few things that they wanted?"

i don't see the big deal.

these things are out in the middle of nowhere in the country. i could see it being a big deal if it was in the city or something. but out in the middle of the country i don't really care. they probably just did google images for some of the stuff out in the country. it would be a lot of work for them to find things to photo graph in the country compared to the city.

i don't find it a big deal personally.

It's pretty safe to assume that they did it because the countryside or boring as shit, no matter where you are. If they didn't take some liberties and put more unique things in the countryside, the area wouldn't be nearly as interesting.

I'm willing to bet that they had a shot of the bridge in BC, and they lead landscape designer said something to the effect of, "Find me a rail bridge like that, but in California."

After finding no such bridge, they returned with the original image and no one was the wiser. Show biz.

I've been to that bridge. There's a reason it was the highest it the world when it was new.

I'll have to Google some tutorials. I'd like to experiment with using Inkscape to recreate the actual map, come September.

Or you can join forces, and create an official iGTA5 - Points of Interest, Stunt Jump, Hidden Pickups/Packages map...?

Sounds like a fun time! I've got plenty of time to learn the ropes of Inkscape between now and September.
