First of all i would like to say a few things before i start talking about the concept!
1.This is my first one so it might need lots of improvement
2.Also my english is not very good so sorry about that
THE SETTING OF THE GAME
The game sets in the other part of SA: San Fierro, Tierra Robada, Bone County and Las Venturas. The game sets after Grand Theft Auto V in 2015.
The map is about 3-5 times the one in GTA V. There is not any roads (except the bridges) or businesses, shops etc shown on the map but it is just for you to see the basic layout of the map.
Areas in the map
San fierro is another capital of crime in San Andreas. Even though there are Triads, The mafia, The Loco Cartel, and a few small street gangs, there are some places with a minimal amount of crime.
Doherty is a place you want to move if you don't have too much money to spend and if you are willing to take the 10% risk of getting in the middle of a gang shooting. Apart from the fact the Mexican street gang called San Fierro Rifa, its a nice place to live. It even has a mall with about 10 businesses.
Kings & Queens
Kings and Queens are about the same as Doherty, just without that much criminality, but they both are pretty near the Rifa's territory, so there is still a risk being in a gang shooting.
Garcia is Rifa's territory also. But they do not commit that many crimes in the area. Garcia has a few apartment buildings and businesses.
Paradiso might be the most dangerous neighborhood in San Fierro (of course downtown has more criminality, cause its bigger). There is lots of drug business in Paradiso, the dealers are mostly members of The Rifa.
City Hall is a small area where you can find the City Hall of course and FIB offices.
Ocean Flats a neighborhood with a lot of nice houses. The beach is also nearby so you can get there fast. Only problem is that the street gang called ''Flats Boyz'' is operating in there, but they usually leave you alone if you are not any harm to them.
Santa Flora & Calton Heights
These both are very nice and peaceful areas to live. There is a minimal amount of crime in there. Santa Flora has mostly apartments and houses but in Calton Heights you can find a few businesses.
Chinatown is fully controlled by Triads. The most of it's population is Chinese.
The Triads don't control that many areas so they try to keep it as their own. If they see a rival gang member there most likely they will shoot.
This is the place with all the businesses, public services, hotels etc.
Any gang does not control the area but lots of robberies, drug deals etc. is happening there.
North Coast & Esplanade
The areas controlled by The Mafia, but usually everybody in the neighborhood know each other so they are friendly to each other. Most of the population in the areas are Italian Americans, which means that you can find lots of services like Italian restaurants and cafes.If an enemy gang tresspassing the area, The Mafia does not hesitate to shoot.
The main docks of San Fierro. Lot of cargo is coming here and in The Esplanade.Legal and illegal. There is also apartments you can find in there, and the train station.
In Battery point you can find clubs, bars etc. If you are walking here alone at night, most likely you will get robbed.
This is the place of the rich people. The few mansions what are in San Fierro will be found here.
Even though this area is far from the main area of San Fierro, it still counts as the same city. It is a small town with a trailer park and a camping area. Also The Lost are operating here.
This is a small countryside area with only a one city: Bayside. Bayside is a pretty peaceful with a marina town but sometimes The Cobras are making trouble there. Also in Tierra Robada you can find The Bayside Military.
Bone County is a desert area between Fierro and Venturas. The Cobras are operating here, but TLAD is trying to take up their territory.
A ghost town, now turned in to a trailer park and a tourist location.
El Castillo Del Diablo
A desert area with some hills, mountains and ghost towns. No population here.
The ''capital'' of Bone County. Here you can find few towns, trailer parks, and airstrips. The Cobras' headquarters is also found here.
You eather get rich or get poor. Even though Venturas feels like a safe and a paradise to live in, there is still crime behind lots of things there. For example The Triads, Loco Cartel, and The Ancelotti Family.
Here is a list of all the characters who play an important role in the game
Antonio ''Tony'' Latori
The protagonist in the game. Tony was born in Southern Italy, but was forced to move in America with his uncle. He is 27 years old. Tony is a very short-tempered guy especially, when it comes to his family and friends. For Tony, killing a person isn't difficult. Tony is a full member of The San Fierro Mafia, even though he has not been a one for long he still has lot's of advantages. Tonys look is similiar with Chris Moltisanti from The Sopranpos and Tommy Vercetti. When Tony was a young he was always making trouble. Starting fights, skipping school etc. He became very feared in school, because of his Mafia connections.
Vehicles: Albany Primo
Francesco ''Frank'' Latori
Frank is Tony's uncle, and a full member of The Mafia, even though he is not involved in anymore, but he gives his nephew advice. He immigrated in The USA alone in 1971 when he was 21 years old. At some point he met the upcoming boss of SFM (San Fierro Mafia) and they started working together.
Tony's sister who is 24 years old. She has an Italian restaurant in North Coast called ''DiLatori''. He doesn't like the way that Tony is living but she has to accept it. Tony can get really mad if someone is harassing her. One thing what annoys Mary is that sometimes coke deals is happening in the backroom of her restaurant.
Frank's son and Tony's and Marys cousin who lives in Las Venturas working for The Ancelotti Family. Her mother who was american and Frankie divorced in 1992 and they moved in Venturas. Her mother Sarah O'Neil died in a car accident in 2012. Brian has a special skill for stealing cars and has made a living with it. Like Tony he is very hot headed but does not act as violent as Tony.
Vehicles: Convertible Albany Manana (Brian steals this car when he is introduced in the game)
Tony's best friend. Even though he plans the jobs he does with Tony, if something goes wrong in the end he is a more of a coward than Tony. He is also a part of The SFM. His look is similiar with Bobby from Brooklyn Rules.
Vehicles: Albany Emperor, Vapid Speedo
Tommy's cousin who moved in SF from Italy not too long ago. He is usually hanging out with Bobby & Tony and doing jobs with them.
Johnny Di Blanco
Johnny is the boss of SFM. He is 62 years old and he owns a bar in North Coast. Suspiciosly the bar is closed oftenly because of ''private functions''. His parents immigrated from Italy in 1930. Some point at 1975-1985 he became the boss of SFM.
Vehicles: Vapid Stanier
Vince is a full member of SFM. He is often spending time with Johnny. His duties are usually loan sharking and ''taking care'' of people who make trouble to the mafia.

Even though Ed is not a full member of SFM he manages lot of the cocaine business with Tony. He shares a similiar look with Claude from GTA III.
Larry is a member of the African-American gang: Flatz Boyz. He also owns money to a former Ballas OG called ''Lil Dave''. Later on the game Tony recruits him into his crew.
Former Ballas OG, now a crack dealer in San Fierro. Even if he lives in San Fierro he has connections to the Ballas. Tony meets Davey and starts doing jobs for him. He is known for giving very small cuts, and thats why Tony decides to whack him later on the game.

One of the leaders of Loco Cartel. He is the boss of San Fierro Rifa. He immigrated from Mexico in 2001.

Associate of The Loco Cartel. He has his own cartel in Los Santos but they are allies.
The main antagonist in the game. His father (Giuseppe Combini) killed Tonys father (Enrico Latori). Marino is 42 years old and living in Italy. Even though Enrico was killed long time ago Giuseppe sworn a vendetta to the Latori family.
He is the leader of The Triads in San Andreas. He lives in Las Venturas and manages all the biggest businesses and operations, but leaves the rest for underbosses. Very little is known about him and he likes to keep it that way.

In 1981 Enrico Latori, Frank's brother and the father of Mary and Tony came to visit America to see his brother. In 1983 he met Claire Donati who was American-Italian, and Enrico liked that. They started dating and after a 2 years they got married. When Claire got pregnant in 1986 they moved back to Italy. Because Claire was american born, Tony learned english very young. After a few years they had another child: Mary. In 1990 Enrico got trouble in the mafia and got killed. The Latori Family was forced to move in San Fierro where Francesco lived.
