Been looking around and I couldn't find the topic that linked with my theory. What i did find is, "The riverbeds are pretty significant as they match up with Industrial Jungle's River beds. However, INGEN Town's riverbeds are facing the wrong way in build 96 and the final, indicating their positioning was changed. The existence and positioning of them in the Plains layout suggests that the riverbeds originally were supposed to be lined up and connected between IJ, IT, and PL respectively". this is from THE CUTTING ROOM FLOOR
. So I was way off
, though it still seems weird that if visitors were to come through the west gate that the town is facing the north.
With that resolved, i have accumulated a mass of images from all over the forum for my project. The first grouping I have is of the wall map/table map.

This is the wall map that is present in the retail. The map follows the road leading from the town THROUGH pine valley and along the coast to the harbor. but it also shows a Y intersection that leads up towards Mt Watson.
Now in older builds the map was in the form of a table with little colored cubes representing structures.

This map shows the road heading north east and going UP Mt Watson before descending to the Y intersection. In comparison to the retail map this is shocking. So this means that the table map actually provides the location of the dam and the flow of the road.
However the one thing that remains constant between versions is this Y intersection that seems to go strait to the communication tower.
(sadly I've reached the max attachments for this post, ill add the next part of my findings later.)
