first off let me say i love this game. but i dont like the map.

 

there isnt a place in the game that makes you feel alone like in san andreas. no matter where you are in the map you can always see the los santos skyline or hear the sounds of cars. there are no forests just mountains and barren land.

 

remember the back o beyond. nothing like that in the map. 

 

not only is there a lack of explorable wilderness. the map does not feel as big as it really is. the reason for this is because we got a tall rectangle map. if the map was wider it would have been much more intimidating.

 

this is my idea of what the map should have looked like. excuse my paint skills.

if the map was wider it would have givin us the effect of it being even bigger that it is. and i also added some stuff like woodlands and a ghost town which is what we all wished for.

 

compare my map with the real map

do you guys think if they removed one of the many mountains, added woods, a couple small towns and squashed the map to make it wider. then maybe it wouldnt feel so packed. because when im in blaine county i dont feel the isolation of the desert. i know san andreas felt huge because of the draw distance but i also think this map is too cluttered and would have been better if we had one less mountain and more space between places.

The small city/town looks kinda stapled on and out of place even on your map, so no, I don't like your map much. I like the games map but do wish the desert area was bigger.

I agree, but i don't think the map is THAT bad. It's still interesting, but still did not meet expectations. And yea, surely they could have left out one of the many lame mountains and given us a beautiful, huge creepy forest. Paleto forest is too tiny. I wouldn't even call  it a forest.

You have some places where you feel alone, i felt pretty alone in Blaine County.

But yes, in Gta San Andreas there where more places where you felt alone.

But i sill prefer the gta v map over San andreas,

I would have landlocked part of it to give us a hint of what the rest of San Andreas looked like and added a small city near the top.

WRONG. How the map really should have looked was San Fierro to the west, and Las Venturas to the north. This huge countryside/desert is total BS and for 5 years time, R* really half assed this map and game itself.

I think a major problem with the map is that it is so easy to go across the map in so little time. Without trees, I can literally drive a four wheeler (or any car, for that matter)  through peak mountains, hills, etc, and get to Point A to Point B in a lot less time. If there had been more trees or at least more things preventing us from doing off-roading, the map would've felt bigger. Why drive on a side-road when cutting across takes less then half the time? In a sports car no less, I shouldn't be able to do that.

The only thing I was extremely disappointed in regarding the map was the size of Los Santos. Not saying it should've been as big as the real LA but it should've been a lot larger than it was. Liberty City felt bigger

I can honestly say that I love the map how it is. it's mile beyond San Andreas' map,  the only reason you felt isolated in that map was cause the tiny draw distance.

Map is too fine to me, well I thought desert places will be on map more than just a Grand Senora Desert, but I'm happy with everything what R* did.

Without taxi contact on phone.. I can't only imagine hah.

Do you mean NW, as far San Fiero? Cause if you put it west of los santos, los santos suddenly loses it's coast line...


Geographically, it would be las venturas to the ENE and san fiero to the NNW.

a landlocked map would've been great instead of this island state, R* is too lazy

Every GTA is island. The map is just too small and looks like island

Say the map was like yours and there was loads of forest I can guarantee people will still moan and most people online would never go there. The people who moan about the map really need to understand just how hard it is to make a game that size on current gen it's like cramming a whale into a f*cking car (over exaggeration). Plus TREES take up allot of data so it would be impossible for rockstar to add a huge forest on current gen. Next gen you'll get ure forest to play in :/(weird)
