A comparaison between "beta" map and final map :

Pretty interesting. What I noticed is that, when Rockstar mentioned that they wouldn't make Staten Island because they only would make areas that would be useful for the game, they took that real. What would be that land on northwest Alderney? Beach? Park?

It almost looks like Times Sqaure isnt even there and Middle Park is bigger.

I don't see what would have been so wrong with some extra countryside in Alderney to f*** around in.

In fact nothing. It would make Liberty City look like it's not isolated from the rest of the world.

 

That's the only thing that I don't like in the new Liberty that I liked on GTA3 Liberty: it had a piece of land conected to the country (where that tunnel to god-knows-where-it-goes existed). At least Bohan should be connect to a mainland. It's very strange go to north Bohan (or Bronx, whatever) and see beaches.

Nice find, I wonder why R* took off that northern bit of Alderney. In my opinion, it should have been kept, since Alderney aint that big. However, I'm glad that the 'airport' in Alderney was taken out, as I suspect it'd do just as much as the other airport, and waste some space.. Besides, if people are traveling to Alderney, and arrive in that Dukes airport, it's only, like, an hour or two drive (in real GTA time) to Alderney.

Notice the size of the Beta airport, it seems to have more land. I remember a few months ago someone noticed more land at the airport on Rockstar's website picture of the city.

It looks as if there is more land to the east. Could it be part of the beta airport?

It seems to be just an angle ilusion. Maybe it's just the size of the real thing, but in the angle of this picture it looks bigger. See how Alderney also looks bigger?

It seems to me, that the map on the cover of the telephone directory is flattened a bit.

So it would need to be streched a little .. then it would compare better with the current map.

 

And thus, the Star Junction is there, but because of the small texture, it seems that it is part of the Middle Park.

I know right. Even with helicopters and planes it wouldn't be that hard for R* to just block out the land you can see.

Wouldn't there be a slightest chance that some beta map areas were left behind in the map files on the XBOX version.

Of course I don't mean in-Game, but in the images in the data folders. Maybe they removed map files when it were released as a PC version?

It would mean for someone to check if there are more map files on the XBOX version than the PC version. Even though we can't open the map-files itself.

Cool find, seen that telephone book to but didn't recognized it was the beta map xD icon14.gif

 

EDIT: Anyone seen this map yet?

user posted image

It looks like a underground subway map, but its really much different from the actual subway map. Maybe it's just a zoomed in map and just a part of it.

This was the orginal textures i took this picture of.

Subway Map Final (Removed Water)

I wonder when and why they removed the Ferry Terminal.

The Ferry Terminal was never removed. It's still there in Alderney but no ferries.

That's not the beta subway map of LC. It looks like it's based on the London Underground, maybe just a random filler if it does appear in the game.

This is going to sound retarded, but I totally didn't know that. I thought the whole thing was gone.

But where was the OTHER ferry terminal across the river supposed to be? It's hard to believe Rockstar built a ferry boat just to barely appear in a trailer, and the map never had any place for it to go.

Maybe that airport at Alderney's west was supposedly Newark Airport?

I'm actually not a bit surprised that there was some extra space in Dukes and Alderney. I'd bet it's some countryside.

In fact it reminds of London's Tube, but just because of color schema and lines design.

 

But how the lines go thru the city, it reminds of a modified New York Subway.

Hello i found a beta map of liberty city on the telephonebook at the apartment in bohan:

 

Alderney had a piece of land and the airport looks different to me:

Dude.

MEGA gratz on a very nice find! icon14.gif

cookie.gifcookie.gif for you!

 

Now I am willing to forgive the slightly different Dukes airport, but you're on the money with the completely different Alderney. How cool would it have been to have another airport and mega docks.

Then again, perhaps they ditched the second airport to avoid the inevitable questions of "Oooh, why can't I fly planes then?" I would have for that reason alone if I were them.

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

and that's why the didn't make more than one airport......like this we don't have planes smile.gif and i understand and respect that bored.gif
