So I've made another San Andreas Era map, to those who said I should try out paint.net and GIMP, I got those tools quite easily but I don't have the hang of them just yet. :panic:

 

Again guys, this map is really bad when put against everyone else's creations but I just enjoy doing it.

If you want to know the geographical info on this city, please notify me. And any comments on how to improve this map would be appreciated,

as I am still working on it and I plan to expand Ocean City into something much more.

It looks really nice! Although I would move the highway to the right border of the city and also maybe make the airport a bit smaller or remove it at all. Other than this, I really like it!

Not a GTA map, just remake of my favorite game map, Metro City, it's based on Final Fight on the arcade Beat'em Up and I just remake in GTA Styled (It's still WIP)

Edit 1: Added some roads to the Park, Slum and Industrial and Major highway road

After

Yes, I really need to improve on some things, but for now this is what I have as a mapmaker

Nice draw. Middle island reminds me of GTA IV's Algonquin.

Yeah. It's looks pretty similar to Algonquin from GTA IV and EFLC expect the Middle Island of Metro City is a flipped version of Manhattan and doesn't have north tail. Here comparison of Metro City and Algonquin from GTA IV and EFLC

Liberty/ Alderney State Update 4

 

Hola! I finally got back to my liberty city map, and for that I want to thank @Libertyking. Every time he posts a Liberty City map, I think 'wow, that's awesome, I should work on my map so maybe it can be half as good as his...'

 

So here it is:

 

psLWnln.png

 

 

The "major changes"

 

  • I completely re did the color scheme of the land. The really light green DID NOT work with the white roads.
  • I re did the "cliffs" and many of the paths ways in parks, etc.
  • I re did East Hook, make it look better
  • I erased a lot of stuff which I'm in the middle of re making, so it looks better.
  • Added Castle Gardens City
  • Re did Suffolk Island (Long Island)
  • Added draft for the full map (Tri-state area, plus Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.)

 

Please enjoy and leave any comments, questions, complaints, etc!

I may or may not be redoing my entire map twice as big just so I can add more detail. Whoops. Honestly, if my computer could handle it, I would make it even larger...

 

@Digweg: Stop being so hard on yourself. Stop saying your maps aren't half as good as mine, please. Your maps are great! And if my maps inspire you to do some yourself, that's enough to make me happy. I, myself, sometimes feel as if I'll never reach the level of "mapmaking talent" some people have on this topic. Look at Midnight Hitman The Deadite's Washington map. That map is way above my level. I'm not the best. And you're not the worst. I love your road layouts, the fact you aren't afraid of putting roads on an angle and the fact you decided to make a Liberty City map (There aren't many of those around, for some reason). Anyway, keep working hard, you will do great things someday!

Also, the brightness of the land and water on your map are a little too close together and it makes the shores hard to see. If I were you, I'd make the water darker.

 

@Queen Elizabeth II: Yes.

How many pixels x pixels does your computer handle? ( only if you know, of course ) I'm making a map with more than 4000 x 5000 pixels and my computer handles it xd

@Zetkut: It doen't depend on the pixels, but how big is the file. For instance, my normal map is 3500x3500 pixels and it is 6.27 megabytes. It runs fine, but I only have 3 gigabytes of RAM on my computer and I like having the desktop version of Google Earth at the same time and sometimes it freezes. Right now, I have Firefox with a few pages open along with Paint.NET and I apparently use 93% of physical memory. I need a better computer.

@Zetkut: Your San Diego seems a bit too close to LS. I suggest you make California bigger in the south or leave San Diego from the map.

Here's an update on my B&B map of San Fierro + Las Venturas + surrounding areas.

RjQXRGM.png

I've learned since jumping into mapmaking blind over two years ago that doing so is kind of - I don't know - stupid. I've restructured my map quite a bit in the last little while, and the major changes are as follows:

- Finished adding structures to Las Venturas, including McCarthy Airport (McCarran IA).
- Added Lake Monticello (Lake Berryessa) east of LV.
- Began working on Birchwood (Oakland) across the bridge from SF. I had originally intended for it to be southeast of it, but that didn't pan out.
- Mapped out Lincoln Pull (Boulder City) in the southeast corner of the map. Added a mini Lake Mead called Rum Lake.
- Added mountain ranges surrounding the major cities.
- Sprinkled a few motels across the desert highway.

As usual, any suggestions are welcome. :)
