Did you ever notice how there are several cone-shaped or pyramid-shaped (pointy) objects in GTA SA? Some may be more logical than others, it could be coincidence, but just in case, I thought I'd look some up.

1. The art installation in Los Santos, near Grove St., next to the train tracks. I've always thought this was a weird thing. If in taxi missions a passenger wants to go there, they call it 'Sculpture Park' or something like it. I don't know if it's based on any real life sculpture park, I couldn't find one.
2. The small obelisk in the square before the Observatory at Verdant Bluffs. Is based on the Griffith Observatory, but it is different, has no detail in the game.
3. Los Santos Lighthouse.
4. Obelisks and fountain at Los Santos graveyard.
5. Big Pointy Building in San Fierro.
6. TeePee Motel in the desert. Also based on real life motel, but still, its position in the game could mean something, if at all.
7. Oil drill tower at Octane Springs. Normal shape for such an object though.
8. Cooling Towers at KACC Military Fuel. Possibly also its chimneys. Normal shape for this object.
9. Obelisk and Pyramid casino in LV. Based on real life casino.
10. Tower near Chapel, based on real life Guardian Angel Cathedral.

There are possibly more of such structures, I haven't checked everything. What do you guys think?

Don't ask how I know this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watts_Towers

DaedalusYoung :arrow: Welcome, Hunter !

And you came with a good info, the name of the real Blackfield Chapel...
And a map we don't have !

Thanks, it will help us a lot.
For exemple, the sign at the entry of the Chapel "Mass Credule", with the ours for messes,
and the 2:30 that we also see on the rusty wheelchair :

Thanks for the replies and all. The Watts Towers, an interesting structure it is.

It struck me, a cone can be used to symbolize a certain type of pine tree (http://www.free-extras.com/images/pine_tree-11921.htm, for example. Also the pine cones are... well... cones. :P And then we have the Guardian Angel Cathedral (even though it is a very well known church in Las Vegas). But combine it, you get Angel Pine. This is where CJ is brought to at the end of the Green Sabre mission, the first outside Los Santos area. CJ phones Cesar and mistakenly says he's in Whetstone.
But Whetstone is a place, if I'm correct, high up, there's a train track going underneath. It's a collection of farms, there's nothing to do, except buying a safehouse.

Daily instead of Mon-Fri, but nothing different, even the ours are good !
So apparently nothing weird at those hours, and the fact that the numbers 2:30
were used to make the rusty wheelchair's front wheel is less mysterious now.

In fact, all the church is less mysterious ^^
Except the Blue triangle...Why did R* let it Blue, without any pics on it, as in real life ?
It must be easy to put those pics on the wall, and R* spend certainly a lot of time to build this Chapel, so why didn't they put tthe good pics?

Is it possible to spray this wall, using a trruck, or something high to climb on ?
Perhaps we can reveal hidden pics...

Do you know why it's called "greenglass"? It's because some beer bottles in the u.s. are green and college students are known to drink a lot of alcohol.

Don't forget, TC. Every game Rockstar North makes has more and more phallic jokes and references in it. It may be pure juvenile humor.

Nice real life comparisons by the way. I have also always wondered what that clock tower/ town hall thing at Verdant Bluffs was. it has a lot of detail put into it and Rockstar definitely didn't want cars to go in there.
