Uhm...wherever you heard that, it was just a theory/rumour.

I can't say I like this. There's almost no creativeness, all youve done was copy and paste and the result looks really shoddy.
The map has potential though, there's some good bits there. I hope your next one (I hope to see more) is done with more effort and creativity, not just copy and paste.

Good try though

Reminds me of gta 1. But just looks like a lazy copy and paste all over the place to me.

I feel stupid-.- I've only just realised that-.- Yeah, it looks alright for a cut and paste job, but I take it the overall map shape was made by DragonLAT?

I believ so. I can see what he's done - he's at least kept the vice feel. You can tell its vc, and can identify the different islands

Without sounding big headed (I'm really not), I know my maps are very good - not the best - and the reason I do them by hand is cos I lack the skill to do them on pc(and I once planned to have a career in graphic design confused.gif ). Perhaps this guys in the same boat - passionate but lacking the experience on pc picture editing.

I agree with that^

and again, at the risk of sounding big headed, I could probably do them by hand if I could be bothered, I'm just one of those people who needs to sit back at the end of the day and see a finished product wink.gif What you lack in computer design skills, you certainly make up in patience, I'll give you that icon14.gif

the funny thing is i'm hugely impatient!

Since school i liked drawing, but wa never good enough to pursue it professionally. I enjoy drawing maps. It's like a low tech version of SimCity, but with more freedom in city design tounge.gif

Been getting more bored lately so I've taken that time to create another map. I might make it bigger as I progress further but right now I just need to finish the roads and buildings.
Definitely not completed yet.

To be honest, I don't think it's one of my best attempts...oh well.
Nonetheless I hope you like it so far even if it's not much.

there's a lot of potential in that xtreme. Very nice look to it. The biggest downside with my handdrawn maps in the quality and clarity of the image - it lacks. This is nice and clear, which is good.

More creativeness is needed with the roads and buildings though but as it's a WIP, this could end up as a very nice map smile.gif

That's What I used to think Mokrie Dela, I always used to be obsessed with city design/planning so I used to draw maps and play simcity all night.. ah, the old days wink.gif

Xtreme0235 - I like it, has a lot of potential and would like to see it finished. Is it a fictional city, or is it based off anywhere specific? ;o wink.gif

Here is a very very early build of a Vice City map for a possible concept thread. Any tips on how to make it better? I plan on making the airport on the island in the top left corner and the entire map for the concept would be larger and include the everglades, the Florida keys and a remake of Key West. This is just the Vice City area of the map.

Hello everyone! I just loved the idea of making my own maps... I made one a long time ago but I don't know where I saved it... jaja Well, I tried to make one map of the entire USA including all the grand theft auto maps and mixing them with the reality... adding some cities (boston, chicago, detroit, seattle, new orleans, salt lake city)... maybe it's a little bit shapeless and small but I think it's okay comparing the work that Rockstar made before creating the other maps... I mean, it's not exactly the reality and it's smaller...

Well, here it is...

and with the names of the cities, states and locations (I just made a few states)
user posted image

PD: I hope you liked it guys.. I'm new here and this is my first post... jajaja and I'm sorry if I wrote something wrong or you didn't understand what I wrote because I'm from Uruguay, I speak spanish and I'm not used to write in english.. just read, listen to people talking in english.. that kind of stuff, not writing tounge.gif jeje

And I will try to create a better map later, with roads, buildings, terrain, etc.. but it will be very difficult because it's the ENTIRE map jajaj

The entire map has a good shape although I don't like mixing III Era maps with IV's Liberty City but it's your decision (maybe if you replace it with Liberty City from GTAIII tounge.gif ). Take your time and make it detailed, it's a nice project so far. Your English is also good except "jaja" and "jeje", I think you mean haha and hehe by it according to you said you speak Spanish in common. Good luck
