I have complied a digital version of the VCS map from radar files. Feel free to use it for showing locations etc.

Read the first post. The map is complied with radar files that I extracted from the game files.

If someone could find the map files for VCS and get them in working in a map program, then yes but it's not going to happen anytime soon. We are just now finding out how to extract stuff from the new IMG files.

 

I'm thinking about re-doing the map when I have some spare time since some roads are a little off.

An excellent map. Maybe it's first use could be to give an idea where the easter eggs are located. I've found most of them, but not all.

Here`s the blank map http://ian-albert.com/misc/gamemaps/gtasa/...a-blank-1.0.jpg

 

Theres also the map with stuff http://ian-albert.com/misc/gtasa.php

I may be able to do one of those for VCS. I love this idea. I may have time tomorrow to do it, but as of now it's on the top of my "to do" list for VCS.

Sure it would be great, and easier than San Andreas. Wouldnt it be cool if there was a night version too? I think it would because Vice City in VCS has much more neons on the buildings and bridges than in VC, you know

That's one thing I loved about VCS; everything seemed to have a neon trim.

Maybe you've missed the fact you're in the Vice City Stories forum, or just the VCS abbreviation in the title, otherwise you're just a total asshat.

And how old are you again? Six years old, huh?

 

A) I noticed that Im in VCS forum.

B) It doesnt make me "asshat" what ever that even means, if I just dont see the point in this topick.

 

Dude makes topick where he says that "here is digital map of VCS" or something, and all I can see is NORMAL image of Vice Citys map, it is just image, and there is nothing digital about it. Maybe there is something I havent noticed, and thats why I havent understood whats the point in this?

 

So could someone please tell me, how I can see the digital map of VC as I was promised to found on this topick, and stop f*cking around?

are you kidding? that's what your mad about? the point that he used digital in the topic description?

 

who cares? it's map on the internet, so really it is a digital form of it. anything found the the internet is pretty much digital, what the hell did you expect when you opened the topic?

 

 

all I can see is NORMAL image of Vice Citys map, it is just image, and there is nothing digital about it.

are you really this ignorantly stupid?

If I were you I wouldnt call anyone stupid. You cant even write well. sarcasm.gif

 

Of course it is digital map since it is in the internet, but I expected that there would be something neat about it, like it would be "3D map" of Vice or something else than f*cking idiotic picture. I think that this whole map is useless. What kind of idiot wastes his/her time time to do something this useless? And most of all, what kind of idiots need empty map of Vic City? I dont get it.

I don't write well? who spells topic "topick" and if you knew it was digital then why would you state "...and there is nothing digital about it."

you are too stupid.

 

and you expected it to be 3-d? oh, so you wanted an INTERACTIVE map, wow, your lack of intelligence must of caused you to confuse the two words.

 

and why would someone want a blank map? maybe to add their own stuff too.

all of the balloon, USJ, and rampage maps had to all come form a clean copy. People need clean maps to show routes, and locate things. a clean map is more useful than a cluttered one.

 

so it's your own dumbass fault for expecting an interactive map when it was clearly stated as bright as day to be just a regular map. And if you don't understand what a clean map is good for then that's your own problem, and stay out of the topic.

 

now, what is it you were arguing about?

Blackadder.

Well if you actually bothered to look at it, you would notice it has VCS landmarks, use your eyes...

 

And it is Digital, because it isn't a scan of a map gamerzworld found say....lying on the road (or something). Just think back to LCS, when the first screens were scans, then R* released "digital" scans, much better quality eh?

I snapped all of the images to compile the topdown map (almost 200 total) but the map would of been huge when compiled. so I'm going to adjust the height I snap the pics from, and make it. I'm going to have a lot less pics, so it'll be easier to compile, but it'll still be a large map.

 

edit: here's the current state of it:

as you can see there's still come small spots to fill in, and come color adjusting, and smoothign out to do. nothing too hard. But I have the basic Layout done, which is the hardest part. (aside from having to compensate for the buildings still being displayed in their 3-d form)

 

It's scaled down ALOT. the map is actually 1666x1995 pixels large, and takes up over 4mb. so imageshack won't host it. I'll try to find a host when it's finished. I'll take some more pics to smooth out areas, remove all of the water, and either apply a flat background for the map, or re-tile the games water texture, to give it a smoother look. I'll also adjust the colors in the different areas to make it match.

Wow! wow.gif That is a good map! so when are you planing on realising the full version?

 

 

EDIT: you didn't take those pics manually..... did you?

I took all of the pics manually. I made some quick cheats to allow me to jump around the map at certain intervals, and some custom camera work to get it.

 

I originally had clost to 200 pics taken, but with the new version I worked on I was able to get it down to around 50 aerial images.

my shots of the dirtbike track all came out with it not loaded, and only the grass shown. so I only have the small bit of it right now, I'll just take more smaller shots of it to complete it.
