I've made maps before on here and they weren't that great, now that I have some spare time on my hands I decided why not give map making a go again.. So that's what I did and here's what my 30 minuets of map making created, Still a WIP and whether I'll get back to it or I can be motivated again to do so I don't really know but I'm happy with what I've done so far. Note the names are made up but I wanted them to sound "Spanish" like. I'll admit I know nothing about Spanish towns and islands but this is all for fun really. Also note that Presto island is kinda base off Starfish Island from VC, I may need to add another island to make it seem like it's really a Starfish island copy.

I plan on making Lyskentyre heights the main part of the map (As in where the character starts if this map was part of the next GTA) I also plan to add a military base island somewhere in the map.

hey, thats pretty good

he's saying he'll do sandy shores, that's just a shot from the official map ;)

 

I knew that, just that iv'e never seen sandy shores that detailed before. My mistake.

I'm going to put that new map aside for a while while I work on the older "Westland" (working name) map.

 

This is Biltmore, the largest city in Hammerland. I have some of downtown and the residential island filled with building footprints. If you look closely you can see a roller coaster track on the far eastern island. It doesn't show up much in this low quality render though.

Do I have to be Leonardo Da Vinci to draw something like this? btw I'm left handed and I'm not very good at drawing, can I still do something like this with my hand? Because I'm even worse at drawing with a mouse or touchpad.

Maps of all quality and medium are fine, though digital maps will tend to look better than non-digital ones - you don't have to be able to draw to make a map, it's just squiggly lines :p

I tried some amateur/noobie sh*t.

This is State of Miami, It's a state of USA.

Includes a recreated Vice City, Liberty, and some new countries/islands.

It's still "Work in Progress" tough.

Here is the map without place names written on it:

http://i.imgur.com/4S3lGmZ.jpg?1

 

Things about this map and changes made on this map:

 

  • This isn't actually the first version of the map, I made some changes with the country names and all that stuff, and in the first version map had city names too.
  • Vice of Man is actually a real life island named "Isle of Man".
  • and Republic or Garnio is a real life country "Republic of Ireland".
  • Liberty City was actually going to be another country named "Lawnor" in the first version of the map.
  • There was a Mexican Island named "Igarto Island" between Republic of Garnio and Liberty City in the first version, but got removed.
  • In the first version, Docks was actually under the South Bridge in Vice City and not in the South of Mainland.
  • In the first version, there wasn't a South Vice Island.
  • In the first version, there wasn't an Island and a bridge in the middle of Vice City.
  • In the first version, there wasn't an island under the south bridge in Vice City.

Hello one and all, please take a look at my very first custom GTA map I created for you all: (It may look sh*t but at least cut me some slack for my first map please :D)

Hey, it looks very good actually! I you want, I could try and make a more detailed version :D

 

I would like that. Thanks a ton, man! :)

I've nearly recovered completely, so expect some more updates from me. I'm well enough to make this 'beautiful', 'professional' and 'official' map I've managed to create.

 

-A few new buildings

 

Current Version

What I want it to become (lazy version).

Sorry I had to throw in an Illuminati reference in there somewhere. It won't be included in the final product though.

What do you think?

Yeah, I didn't want the islands to become too populated, I wanted some natural areas, forests etc to explore. I hope it'll be good too!

Aight, I spent the last 80-odd minutes going through all the posts in this topic and what I've got to show of it is a list of 18 maps that are a)finished and b)of a decent quality.

 

Considering the replies to my last post on this, does anyone not want me to change the OP to a table showcasing these maps? I can move the original OP into the second post so it won't get lost, but there's a it of faff with a lot of images in a single post so I'd rather do that than have them hog a single post.

 

Also, I was wondering if it would be worthwhile to create a second mapmaking topic for tutorials, tips and general help with making maps - the original idea I had a few months ago was to change the OP to a tutorial but that was a meh idea, and considering all the questions I saw when going through the topic something like that still seems worthwhile. Thoughts?

I think the tutorial could be in the second post, but I would not oppose, if there was a QnA topic for beginner mapmakers.
