It depends on the country. Area plays a big role: if you can't fit more than one, that's it. And I'm not including countries without room for a city. Then there is population thing: If the population is huge, like billion people, there's going to be as many cities that are able to fit into the country. It's definitely not going to be as big as real countries, because there's a limitation on how big a map my computer can handle. Even now it's laggy, when I put all the maps together, and it's not even near half size to the real thing.

I always love to see/make extensions of original maps. ☺️

Alright, I think I'm done with this map now.

 

Since gaining their independence from Spain in the 17th Century, the Dutch maintained a modest outpost on the sleepy Europa islands in the North Sea. Their capital was Zondedam, a tightly-knit canal city in the flat, wet northeast of Europa Major.

 

But when the Germans invaded in 1940, the Dutch had to call in the British navy to retake the islands. Once they defeated the Germans, the British completely took over previously-unsettled Europa Minor, henceforth dubbing it “Wee Britain” and building a naval base there.

 

Around the same time, thousands of displaced French refugees fled to the islands. They were settled on the hillier southern part of Europa Major, away from the both the original Dutch colony and the new British Navy base.

 

After the war, as part of the Marshall Plan, the islands were divided up into an experimental prototype continent of tomorrow, to be shared by all three countries. A neutral capital was declared in the small city of Truffles on Europa major, not far from the original Dutch settlement.

 

Marshall dollars attracted industry, jobs and population to the islands, which quickly came to resemble the metropolitan mainland of Europe. A popular tourist destination, replicas of famous monuments like the Eiffel Tower were even built. Sabris, the primary French settlement, grew into a major cultural center, known for its beauty and art.

 

Meanwhile, due to a tax loophole, Ledbury, the primary English settlement, came to be a significant offshore financial center, attracting enormous sums of wealth and developing a stark class divide. Wee Britain became more conservative than Europa Major—especially liberal Zondedam with it's prostitution & dope—and this dynamic remains pronounced today.

 

Smaller settlements arose as well, such as Monte Paolo, the coastal city known for its casinos and street races, and Cantes, known for its nude beaches and film festival. Mercure is a blue collar port, and Tits is an old walled fortress on the sea, dating back centuries, now a fishing town.

 

In modern times, the Europa Islands are plagued with crime. Waves of immigration are changing the identity of the islands, and that's where we find our three GTA characters: a male muslim immigrant to East Ledbury, a gypsy girl who scams tourists in Sabris, and a Ukranian prostitute who just escaped from sex traffickers in De Ramen, Zondedam's infamous red light district. All social outsiders, all with good reason to be speaking English among themselves.

 

And the missions. Oh, the missions. Regular museum heists, of course. In Ledbury there'd be everyone from MI5/6 to the IRA to the royal family to al Qaeda, and various combinations of one infiltrating another to boot. Zondedam would have all the drugs and prostitution, of course. The diamond bussiness in Truffles, of course the Monte Carlo Grand Prix, the French Connection heroin smuggling in Mercure; this thing basically writes itself.

So, i got inspired by what mikelatham did, so i made an extension to San Andreas, and add a city, Santiago, that is located in Chile, South America.

What do you think? 

 

I know it doesn't have to do anything with San Andreas, but i was bored

Why don't you make one for the real SA independent of GTA's SA? That is to say South America & San Andreas, respectively. The southern cone could be cool, but there would be a lot of rural areas to solve for around Patagonia and the urban areas would be unbalanced & peripheral. Actually, I think a Brazil map based on Rio-SP-Brasillia would be better though. Get the Amazon in there, the iconic Copacabana Beach, all the Jetsons architecture in Brasillia. One could scale-up those three cities pretty easily to fill up the whole of a Brazil-shaped island, with distinctive character for each city and distinctive landscapes in between. Each area of the map would be sufficiently unique. You could be a downtrodden gangbanger from the sprawling slums, the usual GTA shpiel.

Or you could actually do South America at large, but you'd probably have to boil it down to maybe six countries with only one or two cities each, so as not to overwhelm. I don't personally find the maps with excessive cities realistic, from a gameplay standpoint. At a certain point, getting around would be downright inconvenient.

I really like the idea of making the whole South America, but i'm pretty sure that's the job of @killdrivetheftvehicle making the whole world, but maybe i can do that, and now that i have vacations from december 11th and on, i have a lot of time to do it :), thanks for the idea.

@David_Loco  you can do a map of the whole of south america too, it's alright to have differing versions. We might inspire eachother.

So fun fact: the GTAV map is 49 km2, and RDR2 is 75 km2. The island of Bermuda is only 53 km2. So Bermuda, home to both Tommy Vercetti-style mansions and occasional real-world violence between drug gangs (in particular Jamaican gangs), is sort of like a real-world GTA map. It's a proper island, with several sub-sections that could be sequentially unlocked, as in the 3D universe games. Lots of little islands to explore too, some with mansions on them. Shipwrecks to dive to around the coast. Really the only downside is the 40kph speed limit. The roads are all narrow and windy, with no highways to open up on. Check it out:

Hello everyone, I want to show you guys my first map project.

It's Vice City Expanded, I mixed Driv3r Miami and some bits of Vice City and here's the result:

https://i.imgur.com/IsAwXxb.png

 

I used as a base the HD version of the VC Map, so props to whoever made that.

Any opinions?

Yes you're right.

When I was playing Driv3r I was stunned how cool this map was, and I thought, why not combine the cooler parts of Vice City into the Driv3r Miami to have an ultimate Vice City map?

I have also added some bits of "countryside" and the Gator Keys in the map.

 

Here's a new update:
