I did too until GTA4. HD era may have changed things around, like Carcer, Philadelphia still has sh*tholes.

I thought Carcer City wasn't even mentioned until GTA V when Michael talked about it?

It was, the reason for it being Philadelphia is the travel stats on IV, I think there's also more about it being nearby to LC in the HD era (like it was in 3D but things weren't really accurate then), so it isn't Detroit.

I also completely forgot that Carcer City was in Manhunt. It also said on the wikipage that it was based on parts of East St. Louis, Flint & Detroit, Gary Indiana and Camden NJ. I can agree with the close proximity to Liberty do it possibly could be Philly, however also on the wikipage it's quoted "It is implied that Carcer City was a booming industrial center in its past before it became crippled by crime and depression." Detroit being the car industry capital of the US, as well as the crime. Everyone I know says that Detroit is way more crime ridden than Philly, but honestly we'll never know because only the creators know what city it's based off.

Spoiler

 

I know, like I said, the HD era may have changed things around.

 

I'm not trying to debate weather or not Carcer is Philly or not ITT, I think it is, but it's not my map so he can do whatever he wants with Carcer, if I were making a map, it would be Philly for me.

Liberty and Alderny State Update 1

 

​You're probably thinking, "what happened to San Andreas?" 

My answer:

Spoiler

 

Anyway, here is the start. 

 

I have completed the general layout of Algonquin, and started on the other boroughs.

 

This will never be as good as @LibertyKing's, but I wanted to do Liberty City.

NOTE: The color scheme is mine, it just looks like Deadite's. It is just a coincidence. If you want to use the colors for a map, go ahead.

Does anyone have a good Rikers Island parody name I could use for my Liberty City map?

Wanted to see, since I don't really have a good one yet...

 

Thanks.

Rockstar usually use names with similar etymology of the place they're using; wikipedia tells me Rikers island is named after a settler who first owned the island, so skimming through the history part gives a few closely related names you could use like Astors Island, Gibbs island or Grovers island...or you could go fancy and choose another Dutch settler, just any that pop out, really.

Perhaps there's also something from GTA4 you can use, there was that history of LC show on TV.

USA Update 4

 

Added Dallas and El Paso. I may end up moving San Diego towards the south west later because I want a fair space between it and El Paso. Going on holiday tomorrow so this will be the last update for a week.

What city/cities do you want to see next? Let me know!

Click on the image above to see a full-scale version.

Not a big update, but I'm doing it because I've finally found a name for my Renton parody. It's gonna be called Shattuck (reference to Charles D. Shattuck who was brought in to Renton by Erasmus M. Smithers as the coal mine operator).

Liberty and Alderny State Update 2

 

​Hello all! Sorry for annoying everyone with my "every two days post something", but I have been working pretty hard on maps recently.

 

This in my Liberty/Alderny State map. Right now I only have Liberty City, but i'm planning to do all of New Jersey (Alderny) and New York (Liberty).

 

Change log:

  • Finished Alqonquin
  • Started on Broker, Dukes, Bohan, and Gordon Island (Staten Island).
  • Started Mayor Gunderson Airport (Spin off of LaGuardia and a reference to my favorite TV show......)
  • Finished Astor Island (Thanks to @RedDagger and @RogerCheeto)
  • Outlined Alderny

P.S. Does Broker look to unorganized and cramped? Please tell me if you think it does. Also I'll add name explanation later.

Please leave any suggestions you think are necessary!
