I like this, what did you use to do it? It is a bit small - apparently the map is 8 times the size of Los Santos, and those blueprints probably don't even show 100% of it.
Great map though! I prefer this style of mock up than those cartoony ones.

Looks great, one problem with it however is that the freeway in north east LS turns into a river flowing out form the Alamo sea.

That's a highway? The map is so low quality it is hard to tell. I will change it around some today.

Yeah, if you follow it down you can see that it crosses over the main freeway that runs past downtown. The LS river is to the right, and is slightly wider.

Is the Richman hotel up right behind IAA building?

The attic windows look the same.

Edit: To user "Baari"; was looking for the Richman

Good find. Could very well be that hotel. The area is certainly affluent enough to fit the hotel. Here's another view of that same building.

^ If you are right it conflicts with koeklin's post above. Or i misunderstand you?
Guys, please, read at least one page of this thread before you post, ok? Thank you.

update: it could be to the left of Chateau Marmont in the IAA shot but looking at the official artwork with michael with money i do not think so.

Maybe that scene in Trailer 2 where Michael first meets Franklin and happens right after a therapist meeting and subsequently that scene where the car speeds off from one of the houses and when they are speeding down Pacific Coast Highway.

He is wearing the same clothes, and it would make sense that both scenes are at the start of the game icon14.gif

Great find. There is a Hooters just a few doors down from there, I hope that makes it in the game.

I promised I'll post updates of my map so here it is :

I erased the previous city (obviously) to reproduce the streets from the real map.
I'll do the coast line later and try to match it with the already existing coastline.
Then I'll add buildings like on the previous map.

If you have tips or things you like (or dislike), please say so. wink.gif

I kinda doubted you on another thread but I didnt realize you were the one that drew this map. icon14.gif My bad, sir. I was just confused with one of the other things you made. Sowwwy!!! Anyway why is everyone saying CVG is jacking your sh*t? Cray cray!




@raavi - no hard feelings man. Sometimes i have to call someone a c*nt to get my point across. I know, im a horrible debater

Not completely correct but very nice. I wonder if someone is trying to make a 3D model of the city.

I mentioned in the other thread but. The details on some of the road layouts leave us with at least 5 other towns and up to 7 if the single roads also lead to towns. How could they get such a detailed layout of the roads.. Nice if true but ...

They should have just used Fido or Kiwi's map instead of this trash. Just looking at the way they positioned the windfarm, prison, and dam so far east shows how truly bad they did this.

Also it looks like they just added random roads in the countryside for no reason, and to think they get paid for this sh*t. lol

Well, I don't mean to brag, but I think I did a better job lol.gif
Kiwi's map is also way way better than this.
And it is exactly the same as the black and white map posted yesterday here so that's kinda odd...

Anyway, back to business as usual.
I'm reworking my map at the moment. Putting buildings where they should be.
I'll have to "extreme makeover" the countryside part so that it links properly with the city.
