I have my own methods on naming 'em, you see..

Well, we know how we named Richmond Island (Staten Island is in Richmond State), but take Ridgepeck, the new neighborhood in Alderney..
It is based on Teaneck in New Jersey, and to be honest I first named Ridgepeck as Ridgeneck. Teaneck.
Anyways, I was looking for the first part of the name by simply Wikipedia'ing it and this is what I found:

QUOTE
Teaneck was created on February 19, 1895 by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature. Teaneck was formed from portions of Englewood Township and Ridgefield Township, both of which are now defunct.


Then I just added Ridge there and decided to be ultra-creative and change the n to a p. Simple as that.

Here's Some suggestions for Richmond Island Neighborhoods off the top of my head.. you can use them if you want and if you don't it's cool.

St. George = St. John's (Northeast, Location of Ferry Terminal)
Tottenville = Bentleyville (Southwest Portion)
Artur Kill Harbor = Bentleyville Industrial Harbor / City Dump (South)
Pleasant Plains - Green Plains (South West)
Woodrow/Huguenot = Thompsonville (West)
South Beach = West Beach (Western Border running south towards Bentleyville)
Arden Heights = Tudor Heights (South East)
Port Richmond = Port Staunton (North/Northeast)
Clifton = Park Heights (Northwest - Housing Projects)
La Tourette Park (Main Park) = Cursor Park (Center)
Oakwood/Richmontown (Midwest Portion) = Elmwood (Forrest Area)
Bloomfield (East/Northeast Portion) = Norfolk - Main Commercial/Industrial Area
Graniteville = Stoneville (Northeast Industrial Center)
Mariner's Harbor = Norfolk Harbor (Extreme North - Above Park Heights)

Cool. I just now realized I haven't named the boroughs of Richmond Island.
I'll do the couple detailed maps on the city, I'll make one of those for the Island. Thanks icon14.gif

I'll start designing the secondary characters such as supporting characters and antagonist(s) tonight, and start thinking of a R&B radio and a Modern Rock Radio.

Updates, updates!
Quite small ones, but I added aircraft (as in airplanes) and additional info about them.
Also check out the 'Transportation' settings in 'Vehicles'.

Cool mate i like it one of my favourite topics and that logo stands out but the only thing is if Rockstar do LC again i would HATE it if they did it present day as i think a 70s version would be awesome.

Updates:

I added the main side characters.
Sorry for messing the center tags, I might make them better. Prolly not though biggrin.gif

Tell me what'chu think of 'em!
I'll keep a holiday of a couple of hours, I'll go inspire myself by playing GTA IV, but more updates soon - maybe today:

- Info on the state of the gangs
- Random characters

PS: If someone's good with visual arts, please help me:

This Idea is awesome, But seriously, The Noutoriouse Cosa Nostra famillies gone, along with the Brutal Russian Mafiya? Nah-ah! not for a long shot, if they go down, then street gangs have no chance.

Talking about what happens to the Peg's at the end of IV, so I'm not talking about real life. And I'm talking sweeping there with a reason, I don't want to take the families of the commission too deep into my story.
Thanks biggrin.gif icon14.gif

Buuump! We back baby!
Minor update, I added the rest of the characters, they should pretty much all be there (exept for randoms).
They're pretty much left-hand-made, I was in a hurry, but they're better than nothing (?).

Now I got a question, shall I do missions or a whole list of the missions?
