WIP (low quality)

FoacHzH.png

I wanted to make a realistic countryside for Liberty City. I struggle with this kind of thing, so I'm using The Crew's USA map as a base. The shape of the map will improve as it's updated. Since the two main rivers in GTA 4 are reversed double parodies (Hudson River is West River - play on East River, East River is Humboldt River - play on Hudson), I did the same for the counties. Hudson County, NJ is West County - play on Westchester, and Westchester County is Humboldt County - play on Hudson. There's realistically spaced towns and cities that in real life aren't restricted to the counties they are based on, keeping with the GTA style. I'm still working out a better shape for East Island, eventually it will have wetlands and a bay separating it from East Beach. If I had to guess, I'd say the map is about the same size as GTA 5. Overall, I quite like the shape and realistic game proportions so far, so I figured I'd share it.

Impressive work, dude. Go on. I love GTA IV maps.

Liberty City 2019 - Update 2

wGdGQeO.png

 

paW5uWq.png

 

Update 2 of my fifth Liberty City map. Last one was in June 2019. This is supposed to become the final Liberty City map I'll make. With this one, I tried to merge GTA IV's map with mine, while making it more realistic and videogame-like at the same time.

 

Edit: Oh yeah and I put some pixel art buildings to indicate the location of some landmarks. Not sure if it's good or not.

I extended the GTA 3 map, I added upstate Liberty (Which is mostly Jakota Island, is mostly a countryside, has forests, farms, has villages like in San Andreas, and has a mountain named Mount Rulpio that's located at the eastern end of it, the Portland Prison, Some small Islands (the one southwest of Staunton has the statue of Liberty on it), and more.

Did the same to Vice City, added the Gator Keys and Everglades, some minor islands and a third island aswell, I also added swamps, so you better not go there otherwise you might Shrek yourselves, also added a tunnel system (As seen by the small dark dots) and in my mind there's also a train system.

Looks like you had a lot of fun making curved roads everywhere.

But this one already looks great.  But it would be better if you continue to make the gta 3 map. And Vice City, that's fine.  Do not be offended.  But this is perfect

In you can expand the map, GTA 3. Add the terrain, as it should be similar to New York.

 

Your imagination is the best that can help you.  Give it a try.  This is genius

Speaking as a Poland citizen, I'm suggesting to switch the south city with the one in the center.
That will be more "realistic", size-wise.

No. Katowice is the biggest metro area in poland. I took similar scale screenshot from all of the cities, and I even had to make Katowice urban area smaller to fit it in. The city of Warsaw is the biggest city though.

That's what I was thinking, with the suggestion.
Anyway, do what you got to do, it's your baby.

thanks, and by the way, I couldn't switch them around, since the streets, although just the biggest roads, are from real cities (mostly that is). So switching them around would not be simple.

Good map, dude. Goood

 

Restore places, such as Anger Bay (Pelham Bay), Norfolk (NOHO), Jefferson Heights, Haril (HoFilt) Heights, Acry Bay (South Kerign), Richmond (Richmond Hill), Frogtown (Turtle Bay), Washington Heights. And when the photo will be in high quality. It's a beautiful beautiful map

South Florida has only 2 tunnels!  Really only 2, one in Ft Lauderdale under the New River on US1 and a new one connecting 395 to the Port of Miami.  With all the water we have to cross you would think there would be more.  Everything is a bridge.  Any trains we do have are above ground.  

 

Did you know that In South Florida WE HAVE NO BASEMENTS!  you will not find a single basement or room built below ground level.  Homes, businesses, hotels, no basements!  Water level is too high and were built on unstable ground.

Oh, well, where would I put those 2 tunnels? I also didn't intend for the train to be underground, but I didn't know how to implement it, so I just left my imagination there.

Seemed like a fun thing to do. Wanted to try and do a take on a expanded Vice City map with a connection to a modern Saint Denis

Very early WIP, took a lot more time than I anticipated, wasn't really going to post until I was further. But It might take a while, so here's what I got so far.
