Since everyone loves recreating american cities, I thought: Why not recreate a New Zealand city? And why not my hometown of Christchurch? So that's what I've done! Here's the map so far:

w7JFKBX.png

If you know a lot about NZ, You'll probably get the meaning behind the changed names.

New Zealand = New Middleburg

Quail Island = Colinus Island

Ferrymead = Heathcote

Linwood = Brittan

Sumner = Settler (or Crawford)

Banks Peninsula = Joseph Peninsula

Stuart Island = Rakiura Island

BNZ = BNM

NZX = NMX

Genesis Energy = Exodus Energy

Countdown = Timer

The Warehouse = The Storageroom (Where everything's ripped and broken!)

Here's my plan for a new concept map of mine.
 9ELl6G6.jpg
 
And here's the names if you can't read them:

Spoiler

 

It will be based somewhat off of The Crew. This will be in island map, but the areas with diagonal white-and-gray stripes indicate landmasses that are off-limits.

Dude, I can help you with New Hampshire towns and cities seeing as it's my home state.

 

Well, other than Bullworth, I won't be expecting to put in much of New Yorkshire...and this map will have the idea that it'll take one real-world hour to drive from Los Santos to Vice City.

 

I'll start with the cities when I get time to work on them.

 

UPDATE: I have begun work on the GTA America concept map (title is still a placeholder)-using GTA V's Los Santos as the starting point, I've already begun adding a second urban area north of LS based off of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles-right now, I'm adding a road that marks the southern end of that area that's based on Ventura Boulevard in the actual SFV.

 

Current plans call for the same map file to eventually include San Fierro and Cascade City in version one.

San Andreas Map - Update 11?

 

I have transferred the map to my new Laptop and I have finally started to work on my map again. I am not sure how long this creative burst will last, but lets enjoy it while we can! Here is the updated map:

 

 

 

I am not sure how much has been done since the last update, it has been a really long time after all. I know that I have done a lot in bits overtime though. If you like the map, and you have criticism and ideas for the map, tell me! I will try and take everything on board, don't you worry.

 

@greasy_rainbow: Wow. Err...cookies?  :cookie:  :cookie:  :cookie:  :cookie:  :cookie:  :cookie:  :cookie:  :cookie:  :cookie:  :cookie:  :cookie:  :cookie:  That's great!

@IanE55: Cool map, looks a lot like Miami in real life. Now, add roads.

 

EDIT: For people new to the thread, here is an overview of the whole map so far (at half size). Oh,and do note the two maps are not joined perfectly, but it will do for now:

 

 

 

 

The only thing I would change is the location of Paleto Bay or change the name or get rid of it completely. It just doesn't really look like a proper bay. maybe if Northern San Andreas ever gets added to GTAV/Online Paleto Bay would actually be a bay, either way, nice map.

I've completed this version of my GTA America concept map.

dfA2vMk.jpg

 

The base map wasn't mine though, it was found here through Google Images.

 

The wider red lines near the top and bottom of the map (as well as just east of Vice City) indicate the map's boundaries. The narrower red lines indicate the boundaries of the game's subregions.

 

And, as always, GTA America will include Easter Eggs-this will include a Mount Rushmore-like monument in South Yankton that will feature the heads of Claude (GTA III), Tommy (GTA VC) and CJ (GTA SA).

UPDATE: Since the map above was just a draft, I decided to work on another GTA America map.

I will be adding highways and cities to this map soon-in fact, I've already begun a few by adding their geographical features-can you guess which ones?

*snip*

 

Hehe this was really interesting to look at. I instantly recognized it being Detroit/metro Detroit and surrounding towns of SE Michigan before even seeing the town names under and what they correspond to the real life counterpart. You did a really nice job on this. The names sound very much like what'd be used in a GTA game and subtly hint at actual names of areas in that part of Michigan (Bagley Hills = Bagley avenue in Corktown, the "Ford" in Springford for Dearborn). :^: :ph34r: :ph34r:

Start on a map a few weeks ago that was going to include all of southern Florida up to Orlando. I figured I would post this here considering I haven't touched it in days, I'll update this later. Also, I have the Los Santos airport in there just for scale.

I recently started adding small updates to my Libert City Map after a LONG vacation break.

I'll post some more updates soon, if I find the time to do it.

So this is all for now:

PS.@Alex76 really nice map, I really like your color scheme and your roads/highways

      And also glad to see everyone else is making great progress/just starting

Mexico City: Update 2.0

 

Since I don't want this thread to go all quiet and such I decided to make an update tonight.

 

n45hLHa.png

 

  • Added important avenues like Calzada de la Viga and Avenida Universidad, finished up Avenida División del Norte
  • Added layout for the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, which i'm not sure if it will be based on the original and current design or the 2015 design.
  • Added more streets on the Centro Historico.
  • Added buildings of the Universidad Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM).

Feedback is appreciated as always.

Would love to see this map with Ventura Blvd/San Fernando Valley!

 

I really wish they included the Valley in GTA V..

That reply came a little too late, though I haven't even started on Milwaukke yet anyway. The correct answer was Midway.

I'm back.  Another version of my USA island map.  It is a gigantic image (2MB), yet still not as detailed as I would like.  It has many map points like police stations, houses for sale, and clubs.  There are also photos to see what I envision at each spot.  These are mostly real world ones, but some are cartoons and screenshots from previous GTAs.

 

Spoiler

 

I tested a render at 10,000 pixels wide, but it was about 4MB at both 70% JPEG compression and 256 color PNG.  That was too big for the amount of quality.  The one I posted above is 5000 pixels wide.  It still may cause imgur to groan under the bandwidth demands.  The only thing that the 10000 resolution really improves is the photos.

 

That was the satellite version.  For the "map" version, follow this link:

So I did this in the last hour:

It's supposed to be a small satellite map of what I wanted the GTA V map to look like. I thought I sucked at satellite map, but it turned out pretty awesome (except for the water, still WIP).
