Just for all of you who wonder why I haven't given a map update in a long while:
I just started Higher College and it takes up quite a lot of time. I also want to spent some time with my friends and gaming, so I haven't gotten around to work further on my map of California.

Don't worry, I will try to start working on it as soon as I feel ready to do it :)


I have seen quite the nice maps here by the way! Love the Dex City map and the San Fierro one, although the placement of the countryside is still a "QUE?" for me.
Cities Skylines is also a great way to create maps. Have created my own (HUGE) city, and it all worked. (Well, my pc died, so not everything worked as it should have...)

and that's pretty much my problem too  :)

sorry but i've been busy last week, here is the update for my Vespucci city map, as i promised.

 

i wanted to keep the same simplistic style for the main land.

so that's it, remember that it's my first map, and if you wonna leave a like that would be awesome  :^:  :^:  :^:

Grand Theft Auto: Seventy Six | Version 2, Update 3

 

v2_3.jpg

 

What's New?

Started Pineland and its surroundings

San Fierro and South San Fierro are complete

 

Note:

Don't judge Pineland's size by its main road's shape. It's bigger and you'll understand it when the side roads are added. Also, San Fierro lacked very small details so seeing the updated parts of it may take a little time because you should compare it to the last update.

 

BTW, I'd be happy if you leave you some feedback about this map, because it's my first made-from-scratch map and I'd like to know about the level of my skills. The map is made in Photoshop, if you didn't already know.

Wow, absolutely amazing! I just want to be able to steal a Gondel and row around.

For real though; for a first map it is stunning! Great job!

I like your map, not per se the placement of the islands (why islands?!), but more how you looked at the city. All the details are amazing. Certainly like worthy!

I do have a question; why three islands? Why not like gifbrah's map? Make it one large island, but with a large harbor inland? I just don't see how this fits into the GTA V's vibe?
But, as I said before; I love the details and the city, so great job on that one! I look forward to your progress!

The reason I'm using three islands is the real-life position of San Francisco and also the famous landmark of the city: Golden Gate Bridge. Making a single-island San Francisco-based map is really hard because of that single reason. I remember in GTA SA, they had fixed it with a very narrow piece of useless land but even then, having the famous bridge there made the game feel epic, even though it didn't lead to a logically reasonable destination.

I actually wanted to make the eastern island (Pineland) bigger so it would have countryside in its southern part and connected to South San Fierro through the countryside, but the overall shape felt too San-Andreas-2-ish.

Also, the reason I'm insisting on having the huge countryside and three smaller cities (South San Fierro, Pineland, Sofia Valley) in addition to San Fierro, is mostly because I'm planning to use this in my next concept thread and these locations are used in the story.

 

 

 

A question from "Cities Skylines" owners: Is it easy-to-use? I mean, does it have a gameplay like Minecraft or can we just start mapping right after installing it?

Not Minecraft. It's a city builder game, like SimCity.

You can start mapping the terrain right after installing the game, "Tools -> Terrain Editor". Once the terrain is done, you start a new game with it and start building the city itself. As it's a city builder game, there are of course limitations like money and such, but there are toggleable Infinite Money and Everything Unlocked mods in the vanilla game so that shouldn't be a problem.

Update 3 on my first map, Toledo, Ohio. As of now, I've decided on a final name (maybe), Lagrange (first name was Lafayette). I did my one-minute-research, so I know there's a small town called "LaGrange", but whatever; the name I chose is named after the street of the same name and spelling (no capital G) in Toledo.

Florida Map #4

 

Vice City (Half of it)

 

Haven't posted a map in a while so here it is...

 

Ho4c6ha.png

 

Click on the image to get rid of the blurriness, I need to fix that : (

 

So I have almost completed Vice City, just got to finish the west side. Hopefully I ain't missing anything big from the map so far. Hopefully I can bring you the finished Vice City later this week, so I can work on other locations within Florida!

 

Many iconic locations within Vice City return including Leaf Links, Starfish Island and more if you look closely (;

 

Map Link: http://abovethelawhd...-2D-4-633265903

 

Edit 1: Working on getting rid of the blurriness

Edit 2: Image messed up / saved in the wrong format tried sharpening

With this update, you can see a new watermark. Decided to replace it with the previous one, because the map I'm making is (or is not) for a GTA concept thread I may create in the (further) future.

Grand Theft Auto: Seventy Six | Version 2, Update 4

 

v2_4.jpg

 

This is almost complete.

 

Progress check:

San Fierro - 100%

South San Fierro - 100%

Pineland - 100%

Pine County - 80%

Gant Recreation Area, Sofia Valley and Dickens Beach - 60%

 

As you may have noticed, Pineland will be somewhere like GTA 3's Shoreside Vale, LC. It contains the U.S.A.P (University of San Andreas in Pineland) and parks and country clubs and some landmarks from Oakland. Its a twist of Berkeley and Oakland as I had said before.  A part of the San Fierro Bay Area is also there.

There are also two small villages in east of Pineland.

 

EDIT: Forgot to say this. The small town in south of SF and west of South SF, is called Pizarro.

Amazing! Still saving money to go to the actual San Francisco some time. It'll be a dream come true. :')
