Johnson, New Berkshire

 

 

Welcome to Johnson. Pop. 5,021. Elevation 1,002 ft. The town was established by Harris Johnson - a reverend born in Trimont - in 1817 in a clearing between Lake Acquadocton and Gert Lake. The town grew quickly and Harris' original vision of a good Christian drink-and-violence free community was lost. As a result, Harris moved to the site that would become the community of Beck Valley. Today, Johnson is the main centre for outdoor leisure in the area such as fishing, hunting and hiking. The town's numerous motels do good business during the spring, summer and autumn while winter trade is brought by the Johnson Christmas Market.

Points of Interest:

 

1. Bellview Hotel - A former mental asylum built on an isolated hillside. Asylum closed 1921, hotel opened May 1924 and closed September 1924 for unknown reasons. Today is a grand ruin visited only by the occasional urban explorer.

 

2. Lake Acquadocton - The largest lake in the area. Good fishing. Small marina in Johnson for dinghies, canoes and small motor boats

 

3. Gert Lake - Named after a local man who drowned 1789. Originally two separate lakes, in 1807 heavy rain caused the smallest lake to overflow and permanently connect them together

 

4. Harmonic Grove - Hippy commune established by "Willow Wind" (Amanda Yark) in 1966. Located on the largest island in Lake Acquadocton

 

5. The Church of Saint John - Typical New England church located in the south of Johnson. The original center of Johnson

 

6. Belleview Woods - Woodland located on the slopes of Bell Hill south-west of the town

 

7. Beck Valley - The river valley which forms the main approach headed north into Johnson. Heavily wooded. Route 89 runs through the valley

 

8. Beck Valley (Town) - Small community formed of a few houses

 

 

 

 

Is this based on any specific town/city?

 

Not exactly, but I've derived a lot of inspiration from the New Hampshire towns in the area surrounding Lake Winnipesaukee. Places such as Wolfeboro, Meredith, and Plymouth.

So that's why it felt so familiar.

Oh look, an update.

 

kpjVvU1.png

 

One step closer to being done for now at least. I tried experimenting with countryside but it ended up looking awkward and weird, but don't worry, I will try to include it soon™

 

So yeah, a few differences around the map shape, basically. Might add more stuff north of Wrigley Field, something suburban probably, but still ain't sure.

 

Feedback is appreciated.

May I suggest that you darken the Yellow used on the Freeways just slightly?

Just a note - if your updates are within a few hours of each other or less and no one else has posted, please edit your post and add them instead of posting them as new posts :)

 

Thanks!

Reminds me to Los Angeles in L.A Noire.

 

EDIT: Man, hard to think i haven't been working on my map in the last months, not much free time and i have been focusing on other stuff, is still pretty unfinished and looks too big for my taste, i wanted to be smaller than LC, but the Pres. Marshall Airport (Pres. Reagan Airport) demands a bigger frame, whatever, i'm still on this, give me some time and i'll give you the finished version, i'm too picky but i still want to contribute to my favorite thread.

is based on Washington, been using this map as reference (WARNING, massive map of Washington DC)

Back again. I think I'll just abandon my last project because it was just too big and it didn't look too nice for me. So, I'm starting fresh now that I now how paint.net works now. I've made an archipelago map that will be more rural than other GTA maps. Currently I have 2 towns, an airport (referenced from the Perth International Airport), and 1 freeway/highway. This took about 1 hour to make. I will be eventually finishing this. Feedback very much appreciated.
