Imo Carcer City is in totally the wrong place evidence supports this.Its not Detroit it never was.One example Detroit doesnt have a subway system where Carcer City does which matches more to Philly.There is way more signs that say its to Philly/Camden such as distance as an example (50 to 120 miles via GTA IV).That is just a few points but whatever make your way you like weather its accurate or not.

No I'm really taking my time with this 3D era map and I wanna make it as GTAesque as possible. your input is noted!

Sorry this took me almost a year to reply to, but I'm glad somebody listened to my idea to use Bermuda as a template! Looks good!

Hi! Im back with my own version of a Grand Theft Auto: Las Venturas (GTA:LV).

 

Here is the link for the map in higher resolution: https://imgur.com/Nbq2qTk  (if you zoom in every place has its own nametag).

 

In the future I'll keep on making map arts with this same layout and maybe expanding to San Fierro and Tierra Robada later! :) 

 

Nbq2qTk.jpg

 

I started doing for this forum thread but got too excited with the idea so I made a new forum topic with all the artworks, logo, place descriptions and cover so I won't overwhelm this thread.

If you want more information on this map such as description of locations, counties and buildings and some cool fan made artworks check this thread: 

 

Saludos!

wonderful, love this!!

It turns out Imagur limits for maps is 20MB Me and Carmain's shared map is 39.3 MB. I don't want to split it but I have to now.
I added new coastal Islands in the southern half and added the Long Valley Caldera Region and Las Venturas. In the Northern half I made the major river systems and the green circles are place holders for the volcanoes which will be snow covered. Vancouver and Vancouver Island have been improved but the Island still needs work. If anyone can help by adding cities it would be appreciated greatly. I struggle most at making city maps, too many streets and roadways. We just need the major cities first, the smaller towns will come later. Other than that good luck. This took a while to get it this far and my computer has trouble handling any more growth of the map so it will be split into sections, or at least until we get to the other side of the rocky mountains. I plan on at least getting to Yellowstone/ Sulfur Ridge National Park.

I would be honored if I could help with the Las Venturas expansion by letting you use the map I was expanding on, we could have the entire western half of the country beautifully designed if given the chance. After all communities always help each other so why not? I give you permission to use it if you like to speed up the process?

I would send the original files so it doesn't get compressed and lose quality if accepted.

Looks excellent! Is that supposed to be a trailer park in the circle to the top right surrounding that lake thing?

Yes, but compare Los Santos map or Liberty City map to this one and you'll see what's wrong with this one. There's multiple ways to make a city in a grid pattern work well.

And no way a city is built 100% in a grid straight pattern, there's always something different, like Mulholland Intersection in GTA SA or the highways in GTA V, so.

Do you literally not see the non-gridlike highways on his map lmfao

Sorry for the double posting but...

 

Update #1: East Broker

 

nXyTf9S.png

 

New neighborhoods:

  • Algonquin Beach = Manhattan Beach
  • Utrecht Bay = Mill Basin
  • Whitney Park = Marine Park
  • Queens Park = Kaiser Park
  • Gooyer Basin = Old Mill Basin
  • Kongsberg Beach = Bergen Beach
  • Bremen Airfield = Floyd Bennett Field
  • East Liberty = East NY
  • Merrickway = Carnesie

Yeah, I got rid of GTA 3 neighborhood names to give an authentic fresh HD era looking.

Plus... new intersection in Firefly Projects to connect South Broker, East Broker, Dukes, Algonquin and Staunton Island (Staten).

Soon, far beyond that peninsula and Francis International; Schlong Island (Long Island) and the Carraways (Hamptons).

 

Feedbacks, opinions, tips and suggestions are appreciated.

Matsukine, your creation has not been seen for a long time.  And it was so cool.

I took them for comparison, and since the real cities are in the USA and perhaps this map is too, then I found it correct to use them.

I'm still waiting on you telling me a city that's a 100% grid straight pattern. Don't evade that lol

Not even my city is like that. I haven't known any city that's like that. Btw, perhaps using the highway term was wrong, I tried to meant the intersections, and sure as hell I don't see any.

@universetwisters I invite you to take a look at all the maps in this thread and see what I mean by "repetitive city layout". Perhaps you haven't seen the rest.

Look up any city west of the Mississippi River and you’ll see that they’re 70-90% grid pattern. I literally don’t see what the problem you have is?

Thanks, I wanted a 100% one, not a 70% or 90%.

And since a GTA map is scaled down obviously you're not going to use a quarter of it (specifically the part that's a straight grid) and call it a day.

Would you play in a map like this?

@Americana may I ask what real life city your map is based on?

Yes, I would play in a map like this because, knowing how GTA scales down things, it’d be surprising if they made a city that wasn’t all grid if they were going for a midwestern city.

 

>100% grid

 

If you take the time to look, there’s a few streets that aren’t absolute 90% angles, especially around the borders. You’re literally arguing just to argue lmao

Just told what I thought of the map, the one trying to argue with me was you. C'mon, let's end this once and for all, I got more important things to take care of.

I mean I said your argument has no basis in reality and you’re the one still trying to make up arguments to validate your opinion instead of logging off to do the more important things you had to do but yea
