Did Rockstar create the San Andreas state to its full potential?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Did R* create San Andreas to its full potential or could it of been improved?

For

GTA V might feel just like California, instead of Los Angeles

They included all the important things

This looks like the map of California

They can make a GTA equivalent of Northern California, Central California and Inland Empire, Northern San Andreas, Central San Andreas and England Empire

 

They could of included a part of Southern California, Northern California, Central California and Inland Empire

Against

They should connect to the map of California

Los Santos should of been more detailed

They could compare to the map of California along with cities, counties, deserts, etc.

Los Santos was missing a place, which was Verdant Bluffs, Unity Station, East Beach, Anaheim and Santa Catalina Island

 

They could upgrade Los Santos County and Blaine County

My opinion

I personally think R* never reached full San Andreas potential and they should of included all cities around San Andreas like San Fierro, as well as cities in California like San Jose, San Diego, Fresno, Oakland, Sacramento, Pasadena, as well as areas in California like Anaheim and even more small towns, as well as counties in San Andreas like Red County, Flint County, Whetstone, Tierra Robada, as well as counties in California like Orange County, Santa Barbara County. The size would be around 15 square miles. Los Santos should of been more like Los Angeles should of been made bigger with the Anaheim and Long Beach area.

 

To everyone, we do not leave it out of the full potential. They needed it for that.

 

Map Ideas

If one of the mapmakers can make a map of what it would of been like or what you would like it to be like, please do so.

 

Reminder

 

This thread isn't being used only for Southern San Andreas, but a topic for people discussing whether or not San Andreas was created to its full potential that would make the game complete. We have been asked long enough and feel it is time for our needs to be respected. What we ask, do not expect for free, as our dedication and love of this game can be portrayed in our willingness to pay for such a long delay DLC content update for the online mode. Full potential would be a great map expansion. The full potential will feature San Fierro, San Diego, San Jose, Fresno, Oakland, Sacramento, Pasadena, Anaheim, East Beach, small towns, counties and plenty more. Same mechanics, same graphic quality, new characters, new missions, new cities. This is the next-gen San Andreas.

San Andreas(based on California)

[/td][td]San Andreas is a state in the Pacific Region of the United States of America. With 39.5 million residents, San Andreas is the most populous state in the United States and the third most extensive by area. The state capital is Sacahoe. The Greater Los Santos Area and the San Fierro Bay Area are the nation's second- and fifth-most populous urban regions, with 18.7 million and 8.8 million residents respectively. Los Santos is San Andreas's most populous city, and the country's second-most populous, after Liberty City. San Andreas also has the nation's most populous county, Los Santos County; its largest county by area, Brigham County; and its fifth most densely populated county, San Fierro.[/table]

EDIT: Seems like R* won't create San Andreas to its full potential and apparently, this point has been made MANY times, and I wasn't aware of it. Not sure why I got downvoted for starting a discussion though. The full potential, I ruled out.

It would be so cool to have San Fierro and Las Venturas.

C* wasted made Los Santos as if it was only a suburban town, and the hoods too small and industrial.

 

They made most of San Andreas a wasteland.

It's 2018. Why are people still insisting that the San Andreas we see in V is the WHOLE state? It's just the southern part, the rest is still out there.

No.

 

Los Santos is very well detailed and a map any larger would make the game even worse. I know some will disagree, but opinions.

 

R* isn't curdious enough for that

 

It's called Southern San Andreas for a reason.

Compared to real life LA It was a little smaller but I still think it's cool how smooth the game can run on last-gen and still look good

They said Southern San Andreas for V. Southern San Andreas = Southern California. Southern California is pretty much LA could they have added more like San Diego or Anaheim? Sure but no one really cares about San Diego which is just like LA but without the nastiness and more homeless people and aside from Disneyland Anaheim would get pretty old very fast.

 

 

They can't add San Fierro because like San Francisco it's on the other side of the state and like a 6 hour drive. Not only that San Francisco and the rest of Northern California give off a different vibe than LA and it wouldn't fit.

This. Its hinted throughout the game that only Southern San Andreas is rendered. Not the whole state.

Oy.

 

San Francisco (San Fierro) and the rest of Northern California does not exist in GTA V. Indeed, San Fierro and Las Venturas will return in a map expansion for GTA Online.

There not capable of a map expansion as they have said that simple singleplayer dlc is too hard to make. Map expansion is way more work than a simple dlc. This version of gta online can barely support it self let alone another map. And another map would make loading times and matchmaking even worse than it is already.

While a map that size would be incredible, it would take ten years to make a game that size with todays graphics and the amount of interactivity needed to bring it all to life.

A GTA online map expansion?!!

Me: 😂😂🤔 They would never do such a ridiculous thing. Not with red dead redemption and GTA 6. Plus GTA online is already doing so good and they essentially said they are too lazy to release a single player dlc.

Nope. They would do such a ridiculous thing. It appears that it was a DLC expansion of Liberty City, North Yankton, San Fierro and even Las Venturas.

San Fierro and Las Venturas needs to be redesigned for the HD universe to be more like the real-life San Francisco and Las Vegas, then Las Venturas would become a city in the state of Robada and not San Andreas. Maybe they can make a GTA representation of Nevada, they should call it Robada and start dividing into all of Nevada cities.

To be honest... I don't know why R* just did a big island... if they kill you when you go further than some certain distance flying on the water... why they didn't add some desert or woods up north and kill you in the same way as in the water, just being killed by a cougar or some wild beast, so you can guess that something is further of Paleto

Far from it. Think about this, Los Santos is what we could say is the part of the map that is used well, but its only 30-40% of the map, max. So Blaine County vastly overwhelms Los Santos, yet there is comparably much less variation or activity to be seen in this remaining 60 or so percent of the map.

 

Had there been more urban environments, be it another city or more small towns like Paleto or Chumash (as long as they had things to do in them, which they don't) littered across the map, the ratio would be more even and the "wasted space" would not seem so wasted.

You should play True Crime series or LA Noire to see that the size isnt everything. Although I agree that the area outside LS couldve used some more attention.

Of course not, not even close.

 

V's map is standing at 30 % ONE city and very few small towns, and then 70 % wilderness and countryside. Even with so much wilderness, they hardly made much use of that either, creating very little 'proper' forest. Each time I pay SA, it just reminds me that V's map is indeed a colossal waste. SA's map simply provides that experience of travel, exploration and environmental variety in a big map that no other GTA can rival to this day - V's map does not even hold a candle to it.

 

At the very least, V's map would have been much better with one more main city like San Diego, a slighter bigger LS with more suburbs and a proper "East LS",a proper forest, and a few more small towns.

By when? Give us a map. Otherwise, it might be all of San Andreas in GTA V to be more like California.

L.A.Noires map was amazing and raised my hopes for GTAV, which sadly it didn't live up to.
