Okay, I've been lurking around on this website for a while now, but this is actually my very first post as a member ! ^^

 

I've always loved mapmaking (even though I am surely not a pro at it) and I love this thread, you guys are crazy.

 

Allow me to bring my contribution to this thread with this little Vice City/Vice State concept-map. This is a map that I've been working one lately and it is still in progress. The idea was to build Vice City and its surroundings, just like Los Santos in GTA V. Most of my inspiration comes from real-life Miami and Florida, although I tried my best to make it look a bit more "fictional" by making some shortcuts here and there. Most of the coastlines, rivers, lands and islands are pretty much done. I recently started working on the roads of the East side of the city. Now my goal is to extend the roads onto the mainlands.

 

I've also posted updates of that map on a french GTA dedicated forum.

I've also worked with other french people (many years ago, actually before GTA V was realeased) on this map that some of you might have already see :

And finally, a little off-topic I know, I've also worked on a Red Dead Redemption concept map before RDRII was released (it was also a community thing but the project got abandonned quite early so I did pretty much 90% of the map) :

Thank you ! Yes, the West coast (and most of the south, where the marshes/everglades are located) is the wildest part of the map, where there would be only a few human constructions, so it had to be more detailed to look more "natural" I guess. East coast, on the other hand, is more like an artificial coastline, where you would find the Downtown area and all kinds of resorts (Ocean Beach, Washington Beach, Vice Point...), so the shapes had to look more "raw" this time.

Manhattan Island v 2.0:

Hey dude, go back to this map.  She looks like Algonquin from GTA 4, but in a large version. Such maps show how New York would be if Rockstar added, such a Manhattan, it would add realism. That is the same New York.  Well, I think it will be cool if you finish Liberty City. Respect 👌

Ok, little update here. Nothing too fancy, just started to lay out the grey color for the city part, added some water spots on the country club areas and did a bit of terraforming in the upper East side of the map. I guess I'm not ready to go straight onto the mainlands yet (I'm kinda scared to start it to be honest, but I'm gonna have to do it, sooner or later) ! ^^

I like this new layout of Liberty City, its faithful to IV's Liberty City as it it faithful to real life NY ! That's exactly what I am trying to do with my VC map. Keep it up ! 😋

Hi all, so im back after like 3 years, and the other day i got this idea:
since the best thing would be a GTA with multiple cities, and its time we go back to Vice City, why not have the whole east coast? i decided to focus on the south, because having liberty city would make it  too big for a game and not so fun afterall.

So here it is! 3 main cities, all vastly different, 
-in the north is Capital City (real life Washington DC). the capital of America, with its neoclassic architecture and look
-in the south is the metropolis of Duston (Houston), another brand new city to explore in GTA
-and last but not least Vice City is back and better than ever! A modern game would really make Vice City shine, it may not be the 80s, but the super cars and the sunny beaches are still there!
PLUS more little towns and cities along the road

How would the game work? 
with such a huge and diverse world it would only make sense to have 3 characters like in GTA V!

-in Texas we could have a crazy redneck guy similar to Trevor or a sceriff of some sort, doing all sorts of adventures in the desert and cities
-how about having a female character, for the first time in GTA, living in Vice City and getting into dangerous mafia business with some references to GTA Vice City, where you can buy luxurious cars and apartments!
-and finally, a black guy in Capital City, to make him cool he could be a police man, or FIB agent, that would make for some amazing missions and locations, special vehicles and what not.

Just a random idea, imagine becoming the president in GTA xD maybe at the end of the game, you would have all the powers to do anything after you finish the main storyline.
 

This map would offer all kinds of locations and even secrets and easter eggs, from the border wall with Mexico to the bermuda triangle, where you could meet UFOs etc, there could be a military base in the desert and mysteries related to the road pattern of Capital City.

So, since i forgot how to  add the image ill post a link and if it works i hope you will tell me what you think about this (imo) amazing world i created for GTA 6

Ahahahah, "the wall" makes your concept even more realistic!

Nice concept, not only for the map that could be intersting, but also for the storyline you've invented. Personally I don't agree on becoming the USA president, I don't think it fits in the GTA style.

Regarding the 3 stories, did you intend them to be connected in some ways?

Hey, is this based on a subway map? Cause your Staten Island is subway-scale and your Hudson River is a perfect straight line, just like on the subway.

Bit strange how you took two of my maps and merged them without crediting me. Is it map stealing season right now or what? Anyway, since I don't plan on adding anything to those maps, you can use them but please, credit me.

Also, Staten island is way out of scale.

New little update. Most of the major axes are done in the south and Downtown bits. 

 

Oh yeah and now the Keys finally begin to be connected to the mainland with that one bridge I added. 😛 I think the Keys are gonna be an even greater issue, because I plan to connect them all with little bridges like in rela life, but I honeslty don't know if it is gonna look well on this map. 🤔
