Each neighborhood is made from 2 layers. 1st layer is for the border and 2nd one is for the color (notice the 50% transparency).

Awesome. It's great that my Home City gets a Map here. :^:

 

p.s. I'd suggest you change your 'Eastern Sydney City' Name to "The Eastern Suburbs". Also, change 'Sydney Airport' to "Queenbury Jones Airport (Kingsford Smith Airport)".

 

If you need help with any other Names, I offer my Assistance. :)

Rainier, CL (Seattle, WA) v2: Gangs of Rainier

 

 

cNlXLxu.png

 

  • The Fallen Angels M.C. - Outlaw Motorcycle Club
  • Ravelli Family - Mafia
  • North Duwamish Mob - African-American Street Gang
  • Marabunta Grande - Salvadoran Street Gang
  • Rainier Triads - Chinese Crime Syndicate
  • 69 Tacoma Hustlers - African-American Street Gang
  • South Tacoma Crew - African-American Street Gang
Gangs I'm considering:
  • The Kids of Maaskantje - Dutch Street Gang (the idea of a gang based on the guys from "New Kids" TV show is kinda silly. However, it sounds funny)
  • Weller Crime Family - New Zealander Crime Family (a New Zealander criminal organization could make GTA a bit more original, though)
  • an Irish-American Crime Family that could compete with the Weller Crime Family
  • a Russian Street Gang or a German Street Gang
  • a Street Racing-Oriented Gang (something with a few similarities to the Westside Rollerz from Saints Row)
@DOWN: Thanks. Edited by Phnx.

Barely did any changes to it, kinda tired of working on it, want to finish quick but need a better internet connecion to peep stuff in google street.

 

i've also started to work in my Carcer City (Detroit) map:

Probably is gonna be taller than Liberty City if i include a Windsor version, haven't decided yet, remember that this is a VERY early sketch/draft of Carcer, is just to decide the size of it.

Nice, I live in the south of England (WILTSHIRE!) myself, quite familiar with them roads! Also, what program did you use to create this masterpiece?

(Size has been reduced to avoid lag)

Huge version

Huge version

 

So, new update! General map shape edit, a few roads added here and there, and other stuff I can't remember at the moment. Made a labeled version for those interested, and I thought "well, this is going to be for a street racing-related concept, so why not add a couple of easter eggs in the names?" Kudos to whoever can spot them. :p

 

And the map is almost done! Sort of. I've got a few ideas for other maps, one will be a tourist-type of map with shops, landmarks and important road names, and the other one will be for the gangs and criminal organizations. Still not quite sure about countryside for it, I believe this is the size of Los Santos county along with a few streets from Sandy Shores.

 

I hope you enjoy this update, and feedback is appreciated.

 

Oh, and I also had the patience and time to make some state license plates. Why? Because why not.

My one bit of feedback is on your terrain, which I'm fairly certain is the result of using vector editing instead of raster - the coasts could definitely do with some improvement. I think it'd help if you made the large sandy areas less wavy, the "jagged" natural look works for the other bits but it looks out of place on the long stretches of sand - a smoother line with less corners might fare you better, or make a detailed coast on a raster program :)

 

Apart from that, it's really fantastic, I'm loving the minor details!
