A much more detailed version of the Vinewood Sign appears in Grand Theft Auto V. It is more accurately located in Vinewood Hills, at the end of the mountain summit on Mount Haan Drive. The sign itself has been scaled to appear slightly larger than its 3D era counterpart. Additionally, each letter has a ladder on the side of it, leading up to a small platform behind each letter. There are also various graffiti scrawled on the surface of the signs. Several large lights provide illumination to the sign at night.

Although there are various signs posted around the Vinewood Sign saying that the area is restricted to the public, hikers can frequently be found taking pictures by the sign, or on the small dirt path behind it.

Occasionally, a Frogger can be seen circling around the sign at daytime. Attacking the Frogger will result in a 3-star wanted level just as if you attacked a police officer.

letter scrap can be found on top of the "I" on the Vinewood Sign.

HistoryEdit
