Heey guys!  :lol:

 

I began working on a 3D model of New Haven

 

Sneak peak >>>

 

new_haven_3d_sneak_peak_by_abovethelawhd

 

All the assets will be created by me, and from now on I'm going to continue with the 3D modelling.

North Yankton and the New Haven maps are currently on pause, till I complete this new project.

When putting an image in Sketchup, I always open My Pictures and literally drag the file into the Sketchup window.

Great job everybody!!!! Those full maps have forced my hand lol
I'm going to unveil my GTA America soon.... Hope ppl post more maps!!!

Well, as promised, here is my rendition (more like attempt lol) of GTA America.... Please forgive the slight sloppiness as I hand-drew everything and then scanned it onto my computer to color it in... Some of the edges might not be perfect, but that's what periodic updates are for!!!

Without further adieu, I don't want to get too wild for my first entry so here are the 9 states and their counties that make up my GTA USA:

San Andreas:
Spoiler

New Liberty:
Spoiler

Flores:
Spoiler

Yankton:
Spoiler

Carcer:
Spoiler

New Austin:
Spoiler

East Andreas:
Spoiler

Grapeseed:
Spoiler

Lexington:
Spoiler


I broke everything down into 9 states and really cut the fat off of the "boring" areas... Took me a while just to get them to connect properly and draw it well enough... But for the mot part, everything is already written/mapped/situated and ready for everyone... I hope you guys like it!!!

Also the next update will be cities and landmarks... After that comes the road maps.... but I want you guys to choose which state I should showcase first!!! Kinda want to get the community going lol

Any questions regarding layout/names/locations.... Feel free to ask away

I fixed the images :^: .... For some reason tinypic kept resizing them to the smallest resolution....

Hope you can see them better now


Btw... All the states do line up properly... I pretty much followed what R* has provided as canon and went from there.... You can put them together sorta like a puzzle... Let me know if you guys want to see them together...

Would you be able to showcase San Andrras first? Seems kinda interesting.

well that's 1 vote for SA..... Yea I kinda like San Andreas & Lexington the best so far.... I basically took the V map and made it the best I could to resemble California whilst still taking liberties on design... I figured Las Venteras could still fit if it was shaped this way lol....

Funniest part was while drawing it out I never drew New Austin... After I was done with every other state and I put them together, I was gonna just use whatever newly created border line that took shape and, to my surprise, it was shaped the way you see it on its own, damn near exactly like Texas... Weird lol

But sure.. You inspired me anyways :^:

Hey guys!

It's been awhile! Here's another update! I've made the island a lot bigger and have included bits of Canada, most of Mexico, Hawaii and the Caribbean islands. 

 

Also I didn't make the Caribbean islands and the hawaiian islands as detailed because im going to start those right now

@chaserrrrs: looks very much like my map. :lol: Only your mainland USA is tinyer, and you included parts of canada I didn't. Oh, and no Puerto Rico, but Hawaii? that seems far fetched, since Hawaii is part of oceania, so It's way out of reach. But I'ts your map.

Well... put it this way, there are at least 3 major cities in each state (not including towns, landmarks, and unincorporated areas)...

 

So minimum 27...
