North Yankton - Finished & Secret Project

 

"This is a concept map of North Yankton, Ludendorff, its mountains and its surrounding towns. Ludendorff is a small rural town located in the state of North Yankton, featured in Grand Theft Auto V."

Hey guys! I know I can never "finish" my first ever map on the forums but, I just want to say its completed. I may come back to it in a couple of years or so for tweaks, but now its mainly finished. I can now focus on my current projects, which are finishing:

Terrè IslandsPalmont State and my super secret project that I have been working on for the past couple of weeks which will be shown underneath this! 

 

Behold, my Vice City Project! #1

 

vice_city_3d___project__1__by_abovethela

 

This map features shadows and a custom water level. (Shadows for buildings can not be seen).

 

What to expect?

 

Simple model of the whole Vice City, possibly with expansions.

What mod? Making a Vice City Remake? Or are you talking about the Tokyo one?

GTA: Tokyo, mate.

 

I don't believe I've done a VC remake anyway.

Okay wow, that is AMAZING. I love your map

​I am happy that you added San Jose (and Silicon Valley) in the map. And am I right? Do I see Palm Springs just north east of Los Santos?

I have some possible ideas for you to implement?

  • In the northern part, you could a small city (next to a lake in the mountains). This would be a combination of Reno/Carson City and Salt Lake City and be possibly called Brokeback, along with a Yosemite based national park called Montana National Park?
  • ​Somewhere east of San Fierro a small/medium sized city based upon Sacramento and called: Solamente?
  • A large island in the south with a small/medium sized city and a military harbor based upon San Diego called Cola del Diablo? The other side of the island has a small rural town with farms called Puerto de Malezas

    ​It seems like you have already added San Diego connected with Los Santos (my bad!)
  • ​Also I miss a larger town (like Paleto Bay) in the middle, perhaps a combination of Fresno, Visalia and Bakersfield called Barnfield?
  • ​Give Paleto Bay a marina (just like Santa Barbara in real life)? would make an awesome addition in my opinion!​
  • Add the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley in the desert around Las Venturas!

It would be neat if you could add all towns from the original San Andreas in the map.

So I have been working on my own project; a game map of California. Far from finished, and I have only, mostly, finished Los Angeles and San Diego right now.

Looks great. I like how you added the islands as well as parts of San Bernadino, Palos Verdes and Long Beach. San Diego looks cool as well, much more like the real thing.

First off, this is in its early stages so, not much stuff is in it. I'm having the railways for last. I will get that stuff in eventually but it takes time.

Edit:

Not to mention that this ISN'T going to be an exact replica of Tokyo, I mean LS wasn't an exact replica of LA.

An update of my map; added some names to Los Angeles; so people can see what is where :)
​Los Angeles Metropolitan Area is almost finished. (just have to do some streets over and add the countryside.

Nice map! Did a little extension on VC for a friend's mod.

It turned out pretty good, in my opinion. What would you guys think about it?

I hope you like the progress where it is going? Trying to stay true to the real deal, while downscaling and adding some playability in the map. :D

Yeah it is xD it is way more work as I originally thought it would be. But I actually quite start to like it. It is a fun way to pass time and I actually learn quite a lot of the geography of Los Angeles and the rest of California.

I am currently reworking all area's of Los Angeles and adding all incorporated cities. Well all the bigger ones at least. So expect some parts named Cypress, Cerritos, Compton, Rosemead and Covina.

Not going to make them geographically correct, but at least they will be there with their landmarks.

Ivar, will you be widening the Northern half? As it stands, it looks too narrow.

EDIT: Thought you meant Los Angeles.
Yes I will be widening the entire map. Only made green in what parts I am using right now. (Coastline) I will add all of California (Sacramento, Fresno, Bakersfield etc.)

It does look too narrow to me as well. It's missing a lot of the eastern portions of California. Other than that I think your map looks spot in. It's amazing!!

Don't worry, I will try to add so much more, just haven't had the time to add all of it in. I also want to add Phoenix, Las Vegas and National parks like Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. Although I will only add those locations with some countryside. Not going to add all the little villages in it.

I just want the cities look real and add some tourist locations. Also I think this map is less than 5% done at the moment. California is my main focus right now and to add some diversity I want to add (parts of) Nevada and Utah too

See how it has a generally consistent width.
