I took the previous map and added more streets, freeways, and bridges according to the actual geography of NYC. I spent more time on manhattan than anywhere else.

Really good map Bonez, but I think that there will be an airport, even if there aren't any planes.

I have a questio about this project: why don't you rotate the map to the left, so that it resembles a horizontal square, just like all GTA maps so far?

That would defeat the purpose of this whole project. The new GTA is going to be a scaled down NYC. This is a fact. Thus the layout will resemble it almost exactly. Forcing the landscape wouldn't make much sence in this case.

Assuming that was a reply to my post... I don't see how it defeats anything. It's just rotating the camera to the left, it's not about deforming terrain or anything.

I love all those efforts but I think it needs to look a little less like NYC, a little more like a penis. wink.gif

I just hope there is at least a little area where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and relax or do a bit of offroading. I'm really missing that in Saints Row at the moment.

or possibly new jersey

Could be... Those two buildings look similar. And if one looks at the picture with the church you see a bit of building sticking in from the right, that has sort of like a curved surface, just like the building with e-cola on it. But I might just be trying too hard.

I agree the Times Square locations are the same. Another thing they have in common is the arrangement of businesses: The GTA3 and GTA4 maps have fast food joints and coffee shops in the same relative locations to the square, only the owners have changed, as might be expected after 6 years. The only thing that keeps me from saying it's the "same" location is the fact the islands have different names. The canonicity of the GTA3 map in the GTA4 universe seems doubtful because of that.

Ah, but the basic layout is the same. Look at GTA3 as Portland = Eastern most 2 boroughs, Saunton = Western 2 boroughs, and Soreside = NJ.

Not saying this is the case, but something to think about.

yeah, personally as of late i've been thinking that gtaIV won't be about size but interiors. it may be bigger than 3 but not as much as we've been hoping.
