I've finished the industrial area of Portland. I'm drawing the map on top of GTA Liberty City Stories' map, so you can look for it if you want to compare the two. This is 3D Universe Liberty City in the year 1959.

 

Callahan bridge was not yet built in 1959, there was the ferry system.

 

Oh right, yeah. I had totally forgotten about that, thanks for reminding me. I'll be sure to fix that in the next update. You're giving me flashbacks of Toni shouting "But Callahan Bridge ain't finished yet!".

 

P.S: Here's even more of Portland done. Chinatown, or rather "Lutefisk Boulevard" is finished.

Hi, fellow users!

I decided to return to my concept thread (GTA: State of Jefferson) that was on hold due to lack of time related to my matura exams. Here's something I'm currently working on. It's the same map, but with blips showing what's located in a specific place (like police stations, cafes or music stores). I'm also fixing some roads at Blanche Island (east to Rainier).

More blips coming soon!

From future plans on my map, I'm also going to crop the graphic a bit (aka get rid of unnecessary parts of it where there's nothing but water).

@David_Loco:I make road first and then building and repeats (and sometimes making land to expand the map. I'm using GTA IV and GTA V Next-Gen color scheme).

 

Edit: I'm trying edit HD era Liberty City Map with GTA SA color scheme but it's still unfinished...

Hows the progress of you SA styled LC map? I can mod it in GTA IV if you dont mind.

UPDATED LIBERTY CITY

Hi y'all! It's been a while (7-ish months), but I am back! I kinda ran outta time to work on maps, and had to focus on other things, but now, I'm back!

 

I want to jump right into the action! First, there have been many new cartographers here, and many amazing looking maps. Nice job!

 

If you remember, a while back, I had a Liberty City map. I was never to fond of it. I want to give NYC a justice. Its my favorite major city. So, I revisited it, and made MAJOR changes.

 

Here ya go!

vxJkupl.png

 

 

This is an early model, an in-development stage.

 

I don't know if i'll continue, as its pretty large.

 

Anyway, its nice to be back!

 

Please give any feedback you have, as i desperately need it!

Just an idea I've been working on for some time. My goal is to expand this map to include all of Florida and possibly further.

Wanted to show you guys just a bit on my planned expansion to continue my Vice City map along with the beginnings of my newest map, one that I'm basing off of New Orleans. Any questions, comments or critiques are appreciated.

 

 

Vice City expanded northwards

New Orleans based map, I'm calling it Saint Roche for now.

Vice City Update 2

 

Just another update on the VC map, I spent awhile redoing the land to the north to try and get a more realistic look plus I finished the streets for Orlando (don't have a good parody name yet) plus the airport there. Also added some more good ol' sponsers to my list, lol. Any questions or comments are much appreciated.

The amount of work put into the detailing is absolutely astonishing, brilliant work. How about naming the Orlando-based area "Reeves"?

Thank you so much, and yes there's a lot(a ton lot) of hours put into this map. I had finished the original map, the one from my first post, probably a year ago, I posted it to reddit originally before finding this forum. I'm happy to have found this place though, its really been an inspiration and has given me a boost to continue the VC map. On the name Reeve's, what was your inspiration if you don't mind.

According to local tradition, Orlando is named after a soldier called "Orlando Reeves", I just used the last name instead of the first.

Ahh, I never thought to think of where the name Orlando came from. Its a good idea, I was thinking along the lines of maybe Osceola for the Seminole Native American tribal leader, I like the fact that they both start with O's.

Can any of you tell me which programs you used for making these maps? I'd like to try doing it myself, but I have no idea how.

Vice City Update 3

 

Just another update to the VC map, added a lot of stuff but still lots to go. Finished most of the roadways though and am working my way from east to west on filling everything in. As always comments and critiques are welcome.

Lookin' pretty good. I'd suggest adding a "Shady Acres" which was mentioned in the radio as a condo constructed by Avery Carrington.

VICE CITY UPDATE 4

 

Hey guys, just me back with another update. Lots to talk about this time so I'm going to bullet all the work done this update, as always any questions, comments, critiques or anything really are welcome. 

 

  • Added a "Shady Acres" area per Hendrik498's excellent suggestion, decided to expand on it though seeing as some time has past since the development of the condo complex (to grow it up so to speak) into a town, located in possibly the worst area to build a condo (directly north of an airport) complete with a golf course and home to snobby retiree's and time share suckers.
  • Finished Ramona Beach (Daytona Beach) and added the Ramona International Speedway (based off of Daytona International Speedway), a great place for rednecks to congregate. 
  • Finished Osceola (Orlando), that probably took the longest.
  • Finished Kisoffme (Kissimmee).
  • Added possibly my favorite area of the map, the amusement parks, Interglobal Studios, Rockstar World Resort and Pastor Richards Salvation Land. Based off of the multitude of parks around Orlando, these amusement parks provide ample opportunities for tourists and locals to spend loads of money on cheap beer and horrible rides. 
  • Renamed the town of Daubney to Delmire, sounds more Florida-ish.
  • Finished most of the countryside in the eastern and central regions, along with adding more docks and little things to detail the map.
