@LibertyKing

I love your map so much, and we pretty much have the same thoughts about 432 Park Ave. :D It's a shame really, since it doesn't fit the NYC skyline in my opinion.

 

Oh, and you might have to make a small change as well :p

That's the memorial park, I think they're referring to the street name ;)

New Update! Nearly completed San Diego, making start on San Fierro, will begin Las Venturas next update.

ALSO: Harbour City is done, I'd add more but I don't want to make it 100% roads. I admit I worked more on quantity than quality but at least it is out of the way.

 

Spoiler

Looks pretty good. If you want or you're okay with it, I could make another version of Harbour City. Maybe more detailed or with someone else style idk XD

(I like to redraw other people's maps, just for practice in mapmaking skills)

 

That would be great, if you could do that!

@Testarossa: Thank you! I ultimately decided to remove the 432 Park Ave. because I like how the skyline peaks on the 1WTC and the Empire State.

and about the street name, I might keep it anyway. It's not like either him or the Housers were involved in this map. Btw, why can't I say his name here?

@irshfever1: 9/17. The release date for GTA V.

If not, it's OK.

It's cool that you have so many states, but how about cities? How many are you going to make, and is the map going to be cities beside cities with no real countryside between them?

My attemp at creating an HD era San Fierro layout is going well so far. What's your opinion, folks? ;)

Looks good, but I think you should change that scisscors looking thing under the left-upper bridge.

Finally, my map project is finished.
 
 

Rainier, Capital (Seattle, Washington)

 

Rainier is a city located in the state of Capital, in Luther County. It's the biggest city in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. A major gateway for trade between the USA and Asia. Rainier is also known as „American Capital of Rain”, „The City of Emerald” or „The City of Strangers”.

 

The dawn of Rainier span the 17th century, when the Deleregi tribe inhabited the Rainier area under the leadership of Chief Ran'eer. The first European who visited the Rainier area was Jeffrey Silberhorn (it happened in the year of 1792). Thanks to Martin Peterford, the first settlement of European settlers was set up in 1851. The name „Rainier” has existed on official Capital Territory since 1853. 46 years later, the Great Rainier Fire destroyed the central business district. The city has been rebuilt.

 

After World War II, the Rainier's economy dipped, but rose again with Western Company's dominance in the aircraft market. It's also worth mentioning Facade Corporation, which moved from Badaque to Rainier and then stared to thrive. A lot of other companies related to modern technologies have come into being in Rainier. It caused a wave of new citizens during the 1990's and 2000's.


In the 1990's, Rainier became the birthplace of grunge music, which Rainier Jam used to broadcast on, before the radio station was turned into an indie station. Currently, Rainier is vying with Weymouth for the title of the most hipster city in America. At night, Rainier edges down. From the place friendly for hipsters and Liberals, Rainier becomes the place full of gangs and strange people, especially in the southern parts of the city.

@irishfever1: I think that even if you have some big cities, some of your cities' grids are too tight compared to airports. And there's no distinction between major highways and smaller roads.

Thanks for the feedback, I will make sure in the next map I make, I'll create a clear distinction between major and minor.

HERE IT IS, ANDROMEDA CITY!

 

hB5sJmP.png

 

This is Andromeda City, inspired in New York, Chicago, Washington D.C. and Metropolis.

The main island has the highest buildings. This city is located a few miles south of Liberty City.

There's nothing more to say, I hope you enjoy it. Suggestions are welcome.
