Another Update!

 

Like the last update, I've been mostly working on the northern part of my map. I've put Toronto in, which is named Hinchtown (if you're an Indy Car fan you'll get the reference) I haven't came up with a name for Chicago or Detroit yet, so if you have any suggestions I'd gladly take them! :)

I would say for Detroit either Motor City or Mile City, or if you want it just as one word, I would reccomend either Martoit, Meriton or Denton.

 

How about Carcer City as a name for Detriot?

 

Also, START OF PAGE 106 BOIS

I was really thinking Carcer City for Detriot, but people say it's for Atlantic City. but I really want to name it Carcer City.

I've considered naming it Fleetwood as a reference to the car industry in Detroit. Fleetwood is the name of a car by Cadillac.

Update 15 I think?

 

So I've started on Seattle. I've thought of three names so far :

1. Cascadia

2. Emerald

3. Seaton

 

I'm leaning towards Emerald, but any input would be awesome! Also if you have any name suggestions for any of my cities, I still need names for:

 

-Boston

-Chicago

-Denver

-Dallas/Fort Worth

-Seattle (As stated above)

and St. Louis

I'd like to see a very small map. Like say the size of vice city or half of gta III. Fully detailed like a V map. This map would be intended for many interiors and much more deeper story with characters that are persistent and you can visit them or kill them off compared to regular peds. Who will draw that map?

I don't really mean to be rude but, in the very first page I pulled a quote from the creator:

 

"No requests unless a mapper has asked for ideas. Maps take a very long time to make, so unless you're willing to pay, don't waltz in and demand a map for your concept you thought of 30 minutes ago and will abandon tomorrow."

Hey everyone, i'm back! (no one probably even cares) I hope this is enough work on this city so I will move on to another area on the map. Here's what I've been doing all this time.

 

Changes:

-More buildings

-Old buildings on smaller island

-Small road that goes under bridge

 

Here it is:

For Seattle, I've always felt that Sapphire City would be a good name. Emerald is good & all, but Seattle is already known as the Emerald City. In the end, it is still your map & your decision so just go with whatever you feel fits your vision.

 

 

Keep up the good work everyone! Seriously, all these maps are fantastic!

I actually like Sapphire City a lot more than Emerald to be honest. Thanks for the input! :)

Terre World Map (New Haven City Included)

The Small Desert Update #9

 

terre_world_map_by_abovethelawhd-d9zykr2

 

Changes:

  • Overhaul of terrain (terrain changes, expansion, new valleys and rivers).
  • Added a desert town with a airport (Need a name :lol:).
  • Added many new junctions and motorways connecting to the "desert town".
  • New roads and fixed placement of several existing roads.
  • Added a few new islands to the map.

I also like to mention "Terré" is a state located within a archipelago that is located in the Pacific Ocean.

New Haven City, is a city located in the state of Terré. Hope that clears up a few things!

 

Hey everyone! ^ This was a small update to the map but I will continue to expand. The desert may get reworked to be more "deserty" along with other regions around the map. The west of the desert town airport will get a whole rework too, as I think it does not look that good.

 

That's everything from me, keep up the good work, maps are looking stunning!

@AboveTheLawHD: Otherwise looks nice, but identical airports? You should probably change one or the other a little bit.

GTA USA UPDATE: 1.5

So I decided to put all of the states together as well as clean up the borders and edges, just to give you guys a better sense of scope (and how hard it really was to hand draw every individual state, all while, making sure they line up lol)...

I also used all provided R* canon and "thinking" for city names and to map this out (like Yankton being the Canadian border, Bully, stats, etc.. I was even able to include the "Four Corners" landmark) So as much as the states and overall shape may look like actual America, trust me, it looks NOTHING like actual America... Kinda how R* does it (I'd like to believe at least lol).... So here she is:

If you're using Rockstar canon, Florida is still Florida, not Flores, also Alderney is a separate state from Liberty City or the State of Liberty

If you're using Rockstar canon, Florida is still Florida, not Flores, also Alderney is a separate state from Liberty City or the State of Liberty....and there's a South Yankton as well... Fully aware...

 

State of Liberty is the wikia name... Everybody should stop getting their info from GTA wikia... Most of it is wrong and it's just fans adding what they feel is canon, ex: Sasquatch Creek in SA is NOT the name of the river between Back 'o Beyond and Whetstone, it's called Shady Creek but not according to GTA Wikia be cuz fans renamed it due to the Bigfoot conspiracies (which were fake as well)

 

Common knowledge that VC was a reskin of III and quickly made... Most ppl (especially then) attributed the naming of Florida as an oversight/developer neglect.... Nobody holds that as canon... I'm pretty sure R* is going to rename "Florida" to something else if VC was redone... (Not necessarily Flores)

 

As for Alderney... We never got confirmation if whether or not that IS in fact ALL of Alderney or if it's just its LC metropolitan area (like in RL, Newark is part of NY metro... Part of Jersey is called West New York)... Until then, I figured welp, Alderney is just a part of New Liberty...

 

GTA Wikia is the worst... I suggest you play every GTA instead of wikia

Also, if we are looking at Rockstar canon, Texas would still be called Texas as it is mentioned on the internet in GTA 4.

 

Anyways, I have finished most of South San Andreas, just need to work on the rest. I also resized San Fierro to make it more realistic. I also need to change some things around with Sacramento, Fresno and San Jose, but that's about it. Also, if you're asking why I named Nevada "Robada", it is because in GTA San Andreas, Tierra Robada is based on Sierra Nevada in real life. I also reccomend people who are trying to pick a name for Nevada to use Robada, as it is most likely the name for Nevada.

 

EDIT: Image will be up in a sec.
