One off thing.
Eastdale, a small town in the pacific northwest.
No real inspiration, just made this for fun, and I might try and make it in cities skylines, who knows.



Wow! Nice map! I was excited to see I-49 because that runs right through my area :)

 

Tbh, I just took a random number, and when doing a bit of research now, nothing adds up :p

After all, it's supposed to be in the pacific northwest, and apparently the I-49 is a helluva long way from there.

So I upped this in the wishlist thread a long time back before I found this thread. At the moment it's still a WiP. If people want me to finish it I will. Credits must go to GIFBRAH who's awesome map I used for the San Andreas region. I also used the maps for GTA4, Red Dead Redemption, Fallout 4 and Google Maps.ChDeUFi.jpg

It's certainly felt a bit like the Caribbean recently with the darned heatwave. So here's a second look at Trimont, the capital of the Caribbean nation of Benedinta.

If anyone fancies naming a street/park/town/geographical feature, feel free to drop me a message with some suggestions. There's a lot of stuff to be named before this is finished (if it ever is)!

HOLA BROCHACHOS

GUESS WHAT
I finally finished my f*cking map, after all these years it's finally completed, sounds like it's too much to complete a scribble but i wanted it to be as close to the real thing while having as much detail as possible and i think i succeded in that front.
I don't think the map it's without it's flaws, i have regrets with it, layout and overall quality can be wonky at places and i even scrapped the idea of map interiors because of how much i butchered certain buildings, neverthless i'm happy with how it looks and i feel i accomplished something.

So here are all versions of Capital City:

The main one

gta_capital_city_map_by_maniac_deadite-d

(Rest in links because i would crash the thread otherwise)

Capital City Tourism & General Info Map

Capital City Eyefind Map

Capital City Neighborhoods Map

Capital City Crime Map

Capital City Collectibles Map

Capital City Subway & Mass Transit Map

New Age Scheme

Harbor Scheme

Liberty Scheme

Classic Scheme

As an added bonus, here's a neighbor town called Riverside Pines and the ever of first version of Capital City i ever submitted here, followed by a version that got rid of the desert and a third attempt to make it more gta sized that f*cking SUCKS, i might someday add even more info about Capital in my concept thread... if i ever feel like completing that.

HOLY COW.  :blush:  That map looks incredibly professional, and the level of detail you put into your maps is just... awe-inspiring.

An absolute masterpiece (well, a collection of absolute masterpieces in this case)! I'd love to see more of your work in the future!  :^:

Like I said in PM, I like how not only you included the map, you went above and beyond to include a transportation map, a crime statistic map, etc.

 

Pardon my french but f*ck making other maps, I wanna see you flesh this map out further with a concept!

@The Deadite

Holy cow!! The amount of detail in every map is simply incredible. The effort put in is amazing, the maps look ready to become a real game map! And you only use paint.net!??

Over all, incredible work on this map/maps, I love it!

 

 

 

 

P.S. I was digging through old maps when I found this gem. My first ever (attempt) of a San Andreas map. 

Brings back memories......

Luther County, Capital - Update #27 [FINAL]
 
ZkQcZq7.png
Click on the image above to see a full-scale version.

I dunno if should make some versions of the map (like The Deadite did), or not.
The map consists: Rainier (Seattle), Blanche Island (Mercer Island), Helygen Skyway (Bryn-Mawr Skyway), and Shattuck (Renton). All of them are located in Luther County (King County).

Kudos on making a really nice Seattle parody map! I'd love to play that exact map in a future GTA. Well done!  :^:

If you want, I'd suggest making some "tourist" maps like The Deadite did, though up to you.

Shoot I lied.

So I said I would finish my maps in summer, but I have had very little access to my computer this summer....

So that means I will not be posting that much or even doing any cartography (sadly)

See y'all at a later undetermined date!

Thanks!

Looking really nice.  :^:

I'd probably improve the stack interchange to the east and use a darker variation of the colour you used for the freeways/expressways. Up to you, of course.

Wow very impressive looking! My only suggestion is to change the tunnel color, since it looks a little off with the rest of the color scheme.

 

P.S. I LOVE how LAX looks!!!
