| Yeah ...sure R* ..if you include some sparsely populated Vinewood hills areas as 'city'.......where does one draw the boundary ?....If you put a road with a houses on either |
side leading away from the city you can include that as 'city'... Calm down Kifflom , were just debating.
I think most people would consider the Hollywood Hills to be part of the city of Los Angeles. That's just the way the city is laid out.
Also, the reason why it seems that the countryside is much larger than the city is because countryside uses less unique assets to create, and therefore uses less disk space. In previous GTA games, most buildings, if not all, are unique models. They don't copy and paste the same row of buildings block after block.
But when you're in the countryside, trees and shrubs aren't unique, they all look the same. By being able to use the same handful of tree/shrub/plant models everywhere in the world, it saves up a lot of disk space, without making it look unrealistic or repetitive.
So I would rather have a game world that's 5 times the size of RDR and contains a city the size of GTA IV than a world that's nothing but a city that is twice the size of GTA IV. The size of the city that you're asking for is far too much, unless you're willing to compromise by drastically reducing the size of the overall game world, or filling Los Santos with generic, reused buildings.
