You can scan it.

Edit: Here's a map that I'm working for a concept. Here I present to you San Diego! San Diego is the province of a Latin American country. The city next to the biggest mountain in San Diego is Valente. The city in the center of San Diego is Serapio. The coastal city in western San Diego is Concordia. And finally, the city in the south is San Renata. I'm also open to suggestions of names for places, regions and highways... And not only names, I accept all kinds of suggestions about the map.

To see the map size, Serapio is the same size of the city of Los Santos (Not the complete Los Santos).

Beautiful map,

Are those lines on the top right an airport or something? (I know that the one next to the city is based on Reagan Airport)

When i created the map of a non coast city, i felt i needed to fill the shore line with something and i placed some ports and the plane carrier you see there.

This map reminds me a lot of a map a guy named The Harwood Bitcher did a while ago, although I can't be sure because the image file is broken.

It looks very good.

Great map! I really like all The neighbourhood/area names and The layout looks just like real life Miami, but in a smaller gta version . I am working on something similar, but will also include whole Florida and many carribean islands. I hooe to be done in this week.

i don't know who this sexy guy called the Harwood bitcher was, but here is the map he made and the  improved version i made.

Spoiler

as you can see, the first version of the map featured non-existent mountains and desert near Capital City (Washington DC) i removed both.
then i realized it looked way too big to be in a gta game, i started again from scratch and made it smaller with less focus on the sea floor.
since the guy got banned, i'm using his R* logo idea and his Capital City logo, i know for a fact he wouldn't care.

So I finally started to make San Fierro, I'm not completely done with the desert part yet though. And to be honest, I think it's too large. I'm not really satisfied with it. Anyway, I will work on SF for now, that is already giving me a lot of work. LV was pretty easy to do, but SF seems a bit complicated. 

 

Here's a little preview of the map with Southern SA.

Update
Eliminated the desert ,mountains and port area near Capital City (Washington DC), next time i want to get creative, i will invent the map instead of being terribly inaccurate with an existing city.

pRgnEYK.jpg

Next time i upload my map it will be finished, then i will finish Las Venturas( Las Vegas) and will start working on Carcer City (Detroit) for my concept thread, the cities will not united to each other a la San Andreas.


I saved the desert area for my map of Las Venturas if anyone cares, also thanks for the likes guys, i was embarrased of posting a selfmade map in here but i realized mine don't look that bad.

A question: i'm the only one who did a Washington DC Map?

The desert and mountains were already removed? I don't see any changes

just a small question:

when we get to the east coast, shall we have the III era liberty city just lower than the IV era map, because it was only loosely based on new york?

A few days ago I got really bored with no wifi, so I made a map like drscot's. Comments and feedback will be much appreciated

I added to my map almost three weeks ago. I don't know why I waited so long before posting this, but here it is.

 

About the south-left stretch of land, I decided "f*ck it, we cut it off" for no reason, really. I guess I needed it to be the island with the rest of the big countryside on it, but I didn't want to do all the big countryside. Not now, at least. Basically, I got too lazy.

 

Something I'd like to add is that there's a Lake Catalina near Miami. I recreated about half of it. I guess I can call it Lake Cesar. :lol:

 

Anyway, I'm done working on Vice City for the time being. Anyone have any suggestions for what I can add on what I have of this map, feel free to say.

 

iP2ZiDa.png

 

I'm also probably not going to be doing anything like blips for this map, mainly because SumoPaint doesn't let you copy and paste stuff. I don't know why it's not a feature, you could easily put it in with the whole layer thing they have going on. I guess I wouldn't know, I'm not a programmer. Maybe copy and pasting is for paying customers only? I'm not one for that stuff, not yet, at least.

 

I'm rambling. It's a late night and I'm tired from playing GTA V. I'll stop here.

I don't have any suggestions at the moment, but damn that is one impressive map. By the way, what is that airstrip at the far right for? :)

Thanks for the kind words. The island with the airstrip is based on an island I saw on Google Maps. ramy94 on the previous page suggested I add islands to the right of Vice Beach so it doesn't feel too empty.  :colgate:

Nice! Please keep expanding on this map to the North and West. I can only imagine it would look even more brilliant. :)
