This is a map I've been designing for quite some time.It not based on any island or exact city, but I think it has turned out pretty well, and I wanted to show it. The name of the island is Peroplio, and the three cities are: Casandria (north), Coppertown (east) and Santa Graciela (south).I hope you like :).

I just spent about 40 minutes f*cking around with my map in SumoPaint. I've been working on it on and off for the past few days, and I needed a bit of a break. So, here are some pictures of the "experiments" I've been putting the map through. Real trippy sh*t.

Note: Now that I think about it, if I were to make this in Sketchup (half-ass it, at least), then the effects would be much cooler.

Yeah well, I've mostly been doing planning. The map is starting to get much larger now that I've started Alderney and most of what I've done is just land, so I thought I'd wait before doing a full update. But here's a half size image of what I've done so far:

That's not exactly how it's going to look, especially for Staten Island. I also don't like the north part of the map at all.

 

Edit: Also I did that back in march just to know what the city would look like in-game, but I never posted it. It was made in SketchUp.

@LibertyKing That mock up with the sketchup models reminds me of that project to do total conversion and make a larger LC for GTA IV.

Besides all the other reasons I like this map, I like how one city is split by a river, another has its own separate island, and the last is at the end of a larger landmass. :^:

Well, my turn.
Remember that Lincoln D.C. map?

Well - I decided to turn it into a real thing.
Of course the one on the screen still lacks a few things, some hills here and there, but I'm working on a 3D version for use in game.

that's pretty damn cool, but you need to add the airport ASAP.

I though that was Sim City for a moment. :)

Todomayor - Stage 3.3

the north side mansions and factories placed Lonestar. I also rezoned some of the mills to park space. Additionally, I moved some roads around and moved the moved the airport and air force base.

@Intelo: I think zoningwise it would be good to have the airport in position d.

@Urban adventuring: It's starting to get interesting. I think you could squeez there a third airfield that is not a military base. Perhaps in the northeastern todomayor?

I think that would be the best location as well.

Oh, i get it. Well - i wanted to do it like that, but there's not enough place left there. Or is there? What you guys think?
I can put it on the left from where the rivers join each other. Is that a good idea?

 

Edit:
I mean I can make some place there, put one of the highways underground.

Todomayor - Stage 3.4

 

NgxXSuZ.png

 

Almost all of the buildings are now placed in Lonestar. I also added an airfield in the northeast corner and put some buildings on the bases and airports. The mall in Lonestar is based on the Houston Galleria, the largest mall in the state of Texas. Lonestar Airport's main terminal is missing in this pic. I must have deleted it when doing something else. I copied it back from an older version of the SVG base file.

 

What program you use to make that terrain background?

 

I use GIMP. It has a feature called bump map which is good for contour maps.

Have not used GIMP in years, but if you say so than great.
There's something wrong with that river though.

I am now going to focus on Cottonmouth on my Todomayor map. I have the roads laid out and areas generally planned, but not named yet.

 

Cottonmouth - Stage 1.1

 

X3WyuKH.png

 

It will be based on New Orleans, if this isn't obvious. "Old Town" will be the French Quarter, and "CBD"=Central Business District. I used Zillow for housing costs to get a feel of what income bracket each neighborhood had and will be using Bing Bird's eye views and Google Streetview for architecture ideas for lots. Most of the New Orleans homes are really skinny and long, with very little space between houses. I know what the French Quarter generally looks like off of movies and such, but the rest I will just go off maps. John Cena's movie 12 Rounds featured streetcars and some neighborhoods. I will consider those. JFK also had some scenes in New Orleans.

I really like the ringroad on the city on the left, and the general patterns... can you show a zoomed in version?

Why don't you call it "New Olivet"?

Olivet is a town next to Orlean (in France). Just saying.

@UrbanAdventuring: I think in cottonmouth there should be shacks between the airport and industrial districts. The noise and pollution from both of those areas lowers the price of property.
