An update: terrain colors completed, Mineral Lake added.

Most of these look okay, or even good... but Dear Lord, what happened to Texas??

 

Well, unfortunately, I will have to restart the map from scratch, since the computer that this was on stopped working for good-it's a good thing I've already uploaded what I did so far (albeit only in the area around Mackinac).

Made some progress, I'm liking where this is going. Also a fun fact: This map's total size is about 16-17% bigger than V's map size. You have a lot of extra space when don't have like 6 mountains and a million hills.

Here, this is what I´ve done so far for my concept of Liberty State:

I've decided to put the Los Santos map to rest. I don't know when I'll resume working on it.

 

So, basically, I'm just working on whatever I feel like at this point.

 

But I did start a Vice City map. So far, it covers most of Little Haiti and Buena Vista, and I plan on recreating the Design District, Wynwood and Edgewater. I hear Wynwood is known as the hipster neighbourhood; should be fun.

Looking really good. Just one thing I'd like to add, where are the northern suburbs? For example, once you leave the Bronx in real life NY, there's Pelham, Mount Vernon, Yonkers, New Rochelle, White Plains, etc. Mount Vernon and Yonkers have high crime rates so I guess you could take that into consideration.

Looks awesome! I really like it. I am looking forward to seeing a finished product from you and aqwaqawq.

Small update on the Mexico City map because why the hell not.

I'm done with the little AHM spoof and renamed it the "Autódromo De la Vega". It's name derives from the last name of the Rodriguez brothers. Ricardo and Pedro Rodríguez De La Vega

 

Pretty much combined all the layouts (GP, Oval, etc.) and it would be a little longer than the real life racetrack.

It's just a sneak peak, but I've been inspired by many of you and I'm just now getting around to making my own map. Take a look.

One of my quickest updates ever. Worked on the Vice City map; recreated the Upper East Side, Wynwood and Edgewater.

I also recreated Morningside Park and Belle Meade Island.

 

Can't wait to work on Overtown.

I don't see much difference from the last map you posted. I even went into paint.net and compared them with overlays and saw no difference.

My first map :(

i like it but tbh the map is way to square-ish /quadringular(fancy word). Also, is it supposed to be Las Venturas because then water seems a little odd.

But anyway keep practicing and don't give up!!!!

A cookie for the effort  :cookie:

I'm working on an original city.  Working name is "Sunburg", but who knows what it will be called when finished.  Here is the plan and landscape.

I got around to working on the Vice City map today. I recreated Overtown and most of Omni. I also made some of Starfish Island, however I haven't gotten to working on Downtown yet.

Vice Mainland is starting to take significant shape, too.

Well, the shape just changed. I added Downtown, finished the Starfish Island area, and made Viceport based on Dodge Island.

 

Also, south of the Miami River, it seemed that all the skyscrapers were cluttered on the coastline, so I had to change the shape a bit. It was a little frustrating.

Not only do I think this is one of the best VC maps I've seen, but I truly appreciate the realism of the scale. That scale looks like something R* would actually build.

Please finish this.

****UPDATE #1: VICE CITY****
I'm going to finish up the road map but first I had to divide the city up. I decided to do it V-style and make it 2 counties: Vice And Bronson County, 3 cities: Vice City, Vice Beach, Holly Lakes

The neighborhoods of Vice City:

Spoiler

Next comes the Vice Beach neighborhood map ;)

Update. I recreated Little Havana, Coral Way and Coconut Grove. I also added Escobar International Airport and the University of Miami.

It's starting to look more like Miami now.

Edit: I particularly liked designing the highway to the airport.

Reimagined City of Cracow (Kraków, Poland). [Not even finished]

 

I'd call it "King's Town" or something because it was once (for a long time) a capital city of Polish kingdom.
