Hey, nice city. It is unique, it isn't too plain and there are lots of cool areas. One thing I would say for improvement is that there is not enough open space. It probably would not suit the style of the map, but the cities are a bit too close together. Overall, very cool city. I wouldn't mind playing that map on another GTA.

About the small islands around, the first one on north-western side is based on the NW side of Boston Allston and Brighton, the second island is based on a part of Charlestown, Bunker Hill and the Neck, and the third island is the east side, joining Orient Heights, Logan Intl. Airport, East Boston and Jeffries Point, as the big island is the mixture of Downtown, Back Bay, Jamaica Plain, Fenway, Seaport District and other neighborhoods, I did not mention it, so all this map is based on the entire city (not includes Brookline and towns around), by the way thanks for your comment and feedback.

  • 2 Rural zones
  • Cities in the "Rich" islands
  • A big tower (not useless :D)
  • A small park
  • Lakes
  • A little, very little surprise

Finished the Industrial zone too

An Update of my Vice City

 

JnHFMkR.png?1

 

 

Since Starlight Island is off the coast, I'm wondering if it should be full of private mansions or private hotels/resorts?

 

EDIT: Yes I spelled scholar wrong, sorry about that.

Might not be too far from VC, private mansions would be nice.

Irishfever1, can I suggest you use a different colour for your Roads? It doesn't offer the best contrast.

Thank you, what do you think? Something darker or lighter? What colours?

Starting to take shape, haven't been working in this sh*t for a while, but is hard to condense a whole city, been working with this huge map i cropped from google maps and basing myself on Liberty City, still missing a lot of details and is not finished.

 

Like...i uploaded this map thousands of times, anyone hasn't seen this by now?

 

EDIT:

 

Added a IV palette version just forgiggles and sh*t :

Darker Colours would be better for the Roads.

Creating yet another map, I am gonna abandon the older maps. I am making a map of San Andreas 2, and this is what i have so far:

 

 

0.01: My tweaked version of Los Santos. There is much more of a city in East LS, as I thought the east side was neglected in GTA 5. I also made the Vinewood hills a bit more neater, and got rid of some of the dock area. Gonna have Las Venturas and San Fierro soon.

Good star, looks a bit too straight though, add some curves on the coast!

 

Update 2:

Made the roads darker (thanks PhilBellic)

Grey - represents major buildings, (skyscrapers, landmarks)

Airport terminals/buildings are a lighter grey

Light black - roads

Dark black and thick - runways and taxi-ways

Yellow - beach

 

 

NEW:

New airport

More roads, beaches and parks

New islands

Pretty sad to see LibertyKing did not win the Best Map award, but sengin did have an awesome map as well. I'm still excited to see what you add to your LC map, LK :^:

Sengin winning was a shocker, i was completly convinced that Liberty King was gonna take the gold home, hopefully we get a finished version of his LC expy next year.

 

Also, much obliged to everyone who voted my much revisited map and gave me the 3rd spot and pretty much only mention on the awards, this year i'll finish that NPG soup of lines and hidden NSFW content and start with my Carcer City and Las Venturas maps, thanks guys and happy holidays!!

I'll be Nominating and Voting for LibertyKing next year for sure. :^:

 

Sengin's Map is great as well.

The problem was that the majority of people voting would be people who basically never come here, and when they see sengin's map they vote for it because it's massive and the texturing is impressive - whereas it seems the people here are more concerned with the quality of the map in terms of an actual map; road layout, detail, and general accuracy to a classical map, which LibertyKing's does amazing at.

 

Note that sengin's was more concerned with texturing, copy/pasting from V's sattelite map and others, meaning there's almost no design put into urban areas (e.g. road/building placement) apart from separating residential from business districts and the like, and there's basically a lack of small details because the point of the map is the general environment layout and motorway placement. It's great, but it essentially doesn't have any detail.

 

This sounds like I'm saying it sucks - it doesn't, it's really, really awesome, but in my (and obviously other people here's) opinion details are very important in a map, which is why LibertyKing's is far better in my view; it's all handcrafted, and it's done well. Obviously my opinion is not shared by the plurality of votes ;)

 

Oh, and other's maps are good - especially Midnight Hitman's and Testarossa's, they're bloody amazing as well - s'just that LibertyKing's is the best imo :p

I didn't expect all of to think I should've won. RedDagger pretty much sums up how I felt about sengin's map. I voted for him too, because I'm not the kind to vote for myself. Big thanks to everybody who voted for me. I was in second place anyway so who would I be to complain? Congrats to sengin for the award!

I will continue to make maps. I haven't done any updates in a while because of school stuff, but I plan to get back to it very soon.
