| I made it. I've been creating for a while. I was working on the roads when they released the map section, so i've now had to rework a few roads... Well, and the map shape now too. Here's the whole map.|
Props to you DuPz0r...That looks reeally good. Can definitely see the map being close to that.
Awesome map but I've got a question that pertains to this and a few of the other fan maps in this thread. Why do the two lakes only have outlet streams/rivers and no inlets? They all flow to the ocean meaning they are all outlets. IRL, inlet streams would flow into the lake from a source at higher elevations, like somewhere in the mountains, and none are depicted on these maps. Some of the streams in the game should probably be like this, unless Rockstar has suspended that part of reality. Also it's very rare IRL (I know of none) where a natural lake has more than one outflow. It's even more odd in the case of the man-made reservoir where one of the outflows is through a dam. I know the Alamo Sea creates a quandary being based on the Salton Sea, which is actually below sea level and has no outlets to the ocean, IRL. Mapmakers, is this something you've considered when making your maps? Is there evidence for multiple out flowing streams but none inflowing? Not trying to nitpick, just wondering if I've missed something because I've followed this thread pretty closely since its inception. Despite that one curiosity I think you guys are doing an awesome job that only fuels my excitement for the game even more.
Yeah, the inflows issue is bugging me too. In the case of the Alamo Sea, there would still be some space in the east... but around the reservoir, it's hard to imagine a lot of higher terrain.
@DuPz0r: Beautiful map! Some minor corrections: The three hills south of the Alamo Sea (Mt. X/Y/Z) are freestanding, i.e. not connected to the Vinewood Hills. And Grapeseed, judging by the postcard image, should be further west, closer to the Alamo River.
