Hey, I'm currently searching for a map of GTA IV map limits. I searched everywhere for one and I didn't find nothing. Seriously, is there someone who could find me one?


We wouldn't need anything like that if we only do Manhattan for now.

EDIT: So here's my new plan:
Recreate Manhattan to make it more realistic
Make Liberty Island face the correct way
Get real Statue of Liberty (There is a mod out there so very easy to do)
Create Ellis Island
Create Governors Island
And finally, recreate Roosevelt Island

Should we recreate everything or just expand Algonquin? We should make Manhattan start all the way north of the map and finish close to the southern limit.

So, you plan on recreating it from scratch? BTW, GTA IV's buildings aren't scaled properly. So it means we can't use them.

I want to make Manhattan feel real ya know... I don't want to completely redo everything, just the important landmarks etc.

We should make Manhattan longer so there could be a bigger space between Midtown and Downtown.

This is definitely possible, because I use the same proportions as GTA IV radar map.

Edit: Just seen we have 2 negative votes now.

I might do that for GTA V, but as I said I'm only focusing on Manhattan and surrounding islands due to GTA IV map restrictions.

That would be the most awesome sh*t ever made for GTA. For making a reallistic size map I think it could just been added Manhattan, placed in diagonal so there would be more space. Having the WTC would be awesome, and for complementing it in my opinion the city should have 1980s or 1970s gritty look; lot of abandoned buildings or in ruins even in areas like the Lower East Side, abandoned cars (hell, I've seen pictures of abandoned cars next to I think the Manhattan Bridge), the old Battery Park and abandoned West Side Highway, the X Movies Cinemas in Times Squares with the neon lights... That city had to be awesome (and dangerous) back then smile.gif

Due to the limitations of GTA IV map boundary, I currently only plan to recreate Manhattan. I know this is a let down for those that wanted the whole map to be re-done, but it just isn't possible. Once GTA V comes out, perhaps I'll make NYC for that so we have more room to make a map smile.gif

The quote says it all. Also here's a mini-poll: Would you want this map to be set pre 9-11 or after? I'm asking because I am creating WTC and if we did it with Twin Towers, it would be easy since I have the models already.

NY without the twin towers is missing a lot imo. You could set it in modern times with the twin towers imo... And I'd ask.HBX to modify his WTC.

By the way, just came to my mind.. Crysis 2 may have some useful stuff, regarding battery park, for example.

If it's going to be like right now, it will have the new WTC complex. If it is pre 9-11 then it will have old WTC complex...

Why not keep it modern with the twin towers? If you make it modern times you could easily reuse IV buildings, but if you make it pre 9/11 buildings like the Hearse tower, Goldman Sachs building couldn't be reused...

In my opinion, the new World Trade Center is ugly. It would be beautiful if it was in Shanghai or Dubai, but really does not fit in New York's skyline. Too modern. A god damn lot too modern.

BTW, you didn't say anything about the plan I made. How is it?

That is because everything is going to change in a couple of years.
Did you really believe New York was going to stay the same way?

Agree time moves on and so do buildings... and Liberty, the plan is good but Manhattan needs to be more "accurate"

Sounds good. I need somebody to help me to actually create Manhattan and surrounding islands.

Are you going to make every block? Sounds like a dumb question since the answer would be probably no but just asking just in case.
