Armor, vending machines, and vendors map:

(This post has been edited to show the latest version of the map.)

I changed the road map a little, too--mainly to show the tunnels.

That's a pretty decent map, glenster. Although, the armor locations can be found easily using the other available maps, the vending locations is something that I did not come across in any map. Some might find it useful. Good job. icon14.gif

Great map...especially for the vendors...btw the
armor pickup directly NE of the Ganton savehouse, in the flood control area, under the bridge, was not noted. I use it more than any other is why I noticed it.

I remember someone (another GTA Forum) saying that in their version A ShotGun was under the bridge instead of the Body Armour.

Thanks for the kind words (and the heads up about the drainage ditch armor--
that's the one I usually used, too), but there's trouble. I was a little
surprised when I asked an administrator for the the website I got the road map
from, gtagames.nl, if I could use the road map, and Joriz the Webmaster said,

"Unfortunately you are not allowed to use material from WikiGTA for commercial
use and use on other websites/media. Only for own (home) use you are allowed to
copy/print the material from WikiGTA. So if you want to put your map online Im
afraid that you need your own background map."

Not that I'm anything, but it's just a copy of the roads from Rockstar's map--
someone else can copyright that?! Anyway, I guess I'll use the lossless vector
map from the texture files of the game from Ian's site and do it over again.

Here's the new version based on the standard map.

Thanks to Robert Rusk for the locations of the vending machines and vendors, and thanks again for the support.

I don't know of any special icons to use--I'm just using Microsoft Paint.
Let me know if I made any mistakes.

lol, why'd you ask then?

The new map looks good too, although there are some color ambiguities (such as the one on Santa Maria Beach that you marked out with text).

Thanks tounge.gif But does anyone know how to reduce it to around 50 to 100 KB (the size preference at Gamefaqs)?

Convert it to JPG (will smudge it a bit) or reduce colors used (yields better compression with PNG / GIF) or reduce resolution.

Btw. you missed a Hotdog van at the 69 truckstop in Flint county

^ Thanks for reminding me about the van. I don't know if it's because I'm using the All In One mod or I clicked something in it or ?, but the red marker isn't appearing in front of it like it usually does. And the back of the van appears embedded in the wall for some reason.

Could you reduce my png file to a 50--100 kb png file for me? The most I can do with Paint is change it to a jpg file, but it's still too big and Gamefaqs prefers a png file.

I just clicked around in Wikipedia and figured out how to save huge png files
as small ones:

Use mtPaint, which is free, and convert the file to an indexed file and remove
unused colors. This makes the file a lot smaller. Then save it.

You can then make it even smaller with PNGGauntlet, which is also free.

I've gotten it down to 477 kb so far.
