It took me quite some time, and some messages to the creators of the maps I used, but here is a wip of the State of San Andreas in its entirety.

Not real life :)

All pictures taken from either GTA V, Mafia 3, Watch Dogs or The Crew. Then changed some of them a bit to make them fit together with photoshop.

Thanks for the reactions ^^ hope Rockstar would see it to be honest and make my (or our) dream come true

GTA VICE CITY 2017 Update 1

Finally. 

 

tIY6vEv.png

 

Here it is, as I promissed a long time ago. After all this time, atleast I made a lot of progress in this map:

-Vice City is 99% finished;

-50% of Cottonmouth (Tampa);

-Started the railroad system;

-Vinewood in the north (Hollywood);

-Added names;

-Added white lines detail to the runways;

-Added Beacher Island (Fisher Island);

-And more details around the map.

So I decided to name Tampa as Cottonmouth, yes, the city from Manhunt 2. I searched at the Gta and Manhunt wikias, and found that Cottonmouth is based on Tampa. ok.

About Rockswere State map (Andromeda City) (Delaware State), I don't know if I am going to finish it. I made a few tests using Paint, and it would look like this:

Spoiler

Nah. Dunno. Too big, and look like a distorted version of Delaware. 

But that's all for now guys, school coming back soon, stuff is gonna get heavy. Bye.

I don't think any of us would play any other game for a decade 😂 totally worth it though. But a map this size would only be fun if there are things to do (hence the reason why I added the icons) and activities both legal and illegal (also in the map).

Any reason you didn't change the name for other countries/ foreign cities?
 
Anyway, great job

I did change oceania names, except for Indonesia, because it's in Asia too. It's hard coming up with names. And since R* did gta london, I figured Europe, Asia and Africa could do with their real names. But if someone should suggest suitable names for them, I would consider changing them.

I see where you are going with this and it looks great! If I were you, I would try to add a little bit more countryside (vineyards and farmlands to the north) and make it an island. Maybe add a small city somewhere in the northern part (based on the city of Nice maybe?) To make it more playable.

I really do like it, gives me an impression of a combination of Midnight Club and Forza Horizon 2

Great job!

Hey everyone! 

I know we've had this debate before, but I want a final general consensus.

 

What city is Carcer City based off?

 

Is it based of a real US city?

 

Or Fiction?

 

Any feedback helps, as I will use this for my new GTA America map...

 

My opinion, its Albany, but I want to hear others before I add it in my map!

Nobody knows the right answer, I guess.

I think that CC is too generic to be based on a certain city. There are a lot of big cities in the Rust Belt, and CC probably has something from each of them.

BTW, I've never heard anyone saying that CC is based on Albany. Maybe I'm mistaken, but I always thought that Albany was quite nice and safe.

A lot of people here think that Carcer City is based off Detroit, whereas I personally am inclined to think that it's Philadelphia due to Carcer City being close to Liberty City (in theory, at least).

As far as I know, no city in Upstate New York has enough crime to warrant being parodied in Grand Theft Auto (closest that comes to this would be Buffalo).

Cleveland's a good idea to combine into the whole "Rust Belt" Carcer City fold, if you ask me. Up to you, though. I can't wait to see your GTA America map.  :^:

GTA USA Update One

 

Hello Everybody! First of all, you may be thinking "wow, doesn't he already have seven in-progress maps?" And yes, I basically do. I am taking a quick break from my Liberty City map, to work on this, and my GTA San Andreas, new, updated, fancy, blah blah blah, map. San Andreas may be done by the end of summer, but I am re doing TONS of stuff that I didn't like how it looked.

Anywho

The second thing you may think is, "this looks alot like LibertyKing's USA map, but lower quality." Yes, I have trouble getting into a style to start out, but if I have a base I can work off, I can make semi decent maps. Hopefully the slight similarity will be okay with everyone, if for some reason not, tell me and I will fix it!

 

Wow, finally time for the actual WIP map:

tcavi11.png

 

 

I have done 5 states, all are close to being done, but still WIP.

If you have any suggestions, comments, etc, please go ahead.

Thanks!

 

EDIT Thanks to @DimitriFaustin and @LeShark, Albany, when I look at it, is too safe for Carcer City. So I am thinking Camden, NJ, Flint, MI, or another Rust Belt city. Once again, any suggestions would be more than welcome!

I LOVE IT!!!! Aside from that I don't think I can give you more feedback aside from this: look at the Forza Horizon 2 map.
Combine this in your map and I think you have the ultimate South France map :D

Cheers for the support.

I'm familiar with the fh2 map, played the game a bit so for sure I can find some inspiration from that map but i think that marseille has to remain the main area, its what the map is called.

Speaking of that what do you think of the logo?

Cheers again

I absolutely love the logo. It is a little grim, but that finishes it right?

You are right about it having to focus on the main area. Still, no city is just a city. Countryside is just as important to the location as the city itself. (Marinas, beaches and vineyards in this case)

USA UPDATE 6

I am back after a long break! In this update, I have added some towns and extra roads on the west coast, and I have also added Orlando (thinking of a name) and Tampa (Cottonmouth). Also a bit of St. Petersburg. In the next update, I will expand on the north east (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, etc) and hope to get the rest of Florida completed

here's a map i guess

 

Spoiler

 

Essentially Bedford represents the city of Boston, if you couldn't tell, along with the surrounding towns of:

Hypothetically the map wouldn't be huge, but it'd blend together into a sort of large urban area with forests to the south and marshy wetland to the north. This is also a thing in an upcoming thing which will come soon I hope. Also it's neighborhoods because im sh*t at grrraphics tbh

And here it is, the State of San Andreas in its entirety. It took my hours of work and I used some assets from other creators. I added their names in the upper left partion of the map under Sponsors.

​This map features ALL locations of San Andreas EVER mentioned in the GTA universe. I had to take some liberties with placements due to the difference between HD and 3D era maps.

​The map features Desert regions, countryside, mountains, hills, rivers and even some snowy areas!
 

Enjoy the map. Feedback is always welcome!

It's been a while since I posted an update for Perth, so here's what I've got.

-Roads have been reworked to make way for the train lines (red)

-Airport concept has been put down without any roads yet

-Casino location added in the bottom right

-Parliament house and surrounding area added

 

I still have much work to do on this, and a lot of reworking and adjusting I will need to do eventually.  It may not seem that much has been added, but last I worked on this was like 3 weeks ago or more so I had to post something to make up for lost time. Anyway here it is.

GTA NORTH AMERICA UPDATE 2

 

Hello everyone! Love all the maps that have been being posted, (all better than mine...). Now I have the second update of my GTA USA/North America map! 

 

Naming:

 

Now i'm not gonna do all the names, just the ones i really think stand out!

 

Aetna (Hartford): Hartford is the insurance capital of the world, and Aetna is a major insurance group there.

Pinko (Moscow, Utah): Now, no offense to any Russians out their, but Pinko is a name for communists, and well......
Irish Vespucci (British Columbia): Replaced Irish with British, and the GTA universe replaces Columbia with Vespucci.

 

and finally

 

USV (USA): Amerigo Vespucci is namesake for the US, so replaced America with Vespucci

Colonia (Canada): Colonia was one of the proposed names for Canada

Gringo (Mexico): Gringo is a Spanish (or Mexican) term for Americans.

 

Map!

a2yhAe9.png

Now, please keep in mind that this is a WIP.

 

​I would love comments, suggestions, and any help naming things (particularly in Canada, Mexico, since I am more familiar with the USA)

 

Thanks! Also, the East coast cities are smaller than West coast, this is because I had less space, If you think they should be larger, just comment that, and I will try to change!

 

EDIT: Also realized Montana and Canada have the same name (or close enough)!!! Will change but any suggestions would be wonderful!

Looking outstanding! The only thing that I don't like is your decision to rename the countries (but still, you're the author, so...)
