I was wondering when something like this was going to surface. Awesome find, man! icon14.gif I wonder why R* decided on a smaller Alderney and 2 airports instead of 3 confused.gif

 

edit:

Get a smaller pic of the real map...wayyy to big.

Nice find! Looks like it could of been a boardwalk behind the casino.

 

@sethpenguin: I believe R* said that Staten Island would be too boring in IV. Nevertheless, it would've been cool if they added Staten Island.

HOLY CRAP THIS IS AMAZING BUBBA!

 

Anyway I wish Alderney was bigger and had a larger countryside because Alderney was my favorite part of Libert City! Hey that peace of land could be connected to UPSTATE like in GTA 3

Maybe you were able to fly planes and you were able to fly to the other airport.

Only thing I can think of is time constraints. If I remember correctly R* announced that the game was only a little over half done on it's original release date (Oct. 16, 2007). So maybe they removed planes due to the time consuming difficulty of getting the physics right and, as a result, removed one airport and made the other smaller. Not to mention that removing all that on top of that Alderney peninsula would have/did cut back a lot of time consuming texture and 3D work as well as vehicle paths, pedestrian paths, interiors, etc.

 

That just sounds the most logical to me. That they removed stuff to keep the game from being delayed TO much..

Hey guys DLC #2 is coming up. That little piece of land at the top left of Alderney is something that's not to big to fit in the DLC...

 

I'm going to hope for it. Problably wont happen but you can always hope.

Ok. I think you need to read what I quoted, and then read my question again.

@sethpenguin: I believe R* said that Staten Island would be too boring in IV. Nevertheless, it would've been cool if they added Staten Island.

Any of you guys ever been to Staten Island? Really not missing much... it's pretty much the same as Jersey or Long Island. Although Alderney is most directly based on New Jersey, I think it fulfills the roles that Long Island or Staten Island would fill as they are similar areas. For example, a few years ago there was a biker war on Long Island between the smaller more underground local guys (Pagans MC) and the gigantic worldwide club (Hells Angels MC) that decided they wanted to open chapters in Long Island. Sound familiar? I honestly think this was a direct influence on TLAD, but since there was no Long Island in Liberty City, they just made the Lost based in Alderney.

 

One thing from Staten Island that I would've liked though would be the ferry. It wouldn't be like incredibly exciting for gameplay, but like the sky car it would add some authenticity. They could've had them going between Castle Garden City and Happiness Island (just as the real ferry goes to Battery Park and Liberty Island) in addition to maybe Port Tudor (since there is no Staten Island in the game).
