Real life equivalents of each state?

Recommended Posts

ghostsoap01

If I had to guess I'd say:

 

- Ambarino - Appalachian mountains

- New Hanover - I have no clue, central or east Texas

- Eastern part of New Hanover - The Carolinas or Virginias

- West Lemoyne - Kentucky (because of Hatfields and Mccoys)

- East Lemoyne - unmistakably Louisianna

- West Elizabeth - West Texas

- New Austin - Arizona and New Mexico

 

What do you think?

I'd say that's about as close as anyone else could get, I've been wondering that myself. I never knew the USA was small enough that I could run across it in a few hours! Wonder if New Hanover or West Elizabeth are real areas

The plantations and mansions in Lemoyne give me some South Carolina vibes.

 

New Austin (at least near Hennigin's Stead) is 100% based on Texas.

I like to think it’s 

New Austin - Texas

Southern West Elizabeth - Oklahoma

Northern West Elizabeth - New Mexico (Ruidoso area)

Ambarino - Colorado 

Lemoyne - Louisiana

West New Hanover - Nebraska

East New Hanover - Virginia

My American geography isn’t all that great, but:

Could West Elizabeth be West Virginia (named after the virgin queen Elizabeth I)?

Hennigan's Stead is definitely Texas, but I think Cholla Springs, Rio Bravo and Gaptooth Ridge must be like Nevada / Arizona / New Mexico (unless there is a desert in Texas, I don't know if there is or not).

 

I don't think West Elizabeth is West Virginia, I really see  more of that "hilbilly" type thing (sorry if I offend anyone) with West Virginia / the Carolinas; and thats the vibe I see more in Murfree Country / Eastern New Hanover, not quite West Elizabeth.

 

I think that map pretty much hits the nail on the head.

Van Horn & Annesberg seem they are modeled after New England.

One of the characters in the game was talking about Ohio, so maybe there are some real states in the RDR universe?

New Austin- Texas, New Mexico. Arizona.

 

West Elizabeth- Colorado, Missouri.

 

West New Hanover- Kansas, Nebraska.

 

Ambarino- Colorado.

 

East New Hanover- Appalachian Mountains.

 

Lemoyne- Louisiana.

The hints are frequently in the names. Amberino is definitely based on Colorado and Wyoming. ‘Amberino’ is the Spanish name for the colour amber, whilst ‘colorado’ is the Spanish name for the colour ruddy red. New Hanover is based primarily on Nebraska with a little bit of South Dakota. Most of the midwest [especially states like Nebraska] had a large amount of German immigration. There’s even a nature preserve in Nebraska named ‘Valentine’. Lemoyne is inarguably Louisiana, with hints of Mississippi. I shouldn’t have to explain the reasoning behind that.

for the Redemption 1 map, West Elizabeth is mostly Kansas with hints of Colorado. New Austin is Texas with some New Mexico and Arizona and a little southern California as well.

California is mentioned too, and there is Kentucky bourbon and tge Tennessee walker horse.  New York gets mentioned several times.

The repeated references to California and New York rather than San Andreas and Liberty City suggests the RDR games are set in a different universe to the GTA games.

To me Van Horn is clearly a port town in Massachusetts, something like Gloucester. the coast is shaped exactly Mass. From there north (Roanoke Ridge) is Maine, with the moose and such; its shaped like it as well. It might not fit the story or world but i believe those were the influence. 

 

looking at it more the map really is the USA. If we say the Florida peninsula is removed and combined with Lemoyne, Rhodes region Alabama/Georgia, Flat Iron Lake is the Gulf of Mexico. Even Grizzlies East has some New Hampshire White Mountains influence, especially with the face in the mountain; and its right next to Roanoke Ridge (Maine)

I am not sure about Roanoke Ridge since there is a Roanoke city in Virginia and Virginia which was famous for its mining including one of the highest quality coal in the States. Also they have a Ridge Province  ( mining area) and Roanoke is located at Blue Ridge Mountains . 

 

Rockstar is definitely using multiple states as inspiration but for some reason I am pretty sure Virginia is one of those states.

Ambarino = (West Grizzlies/Rocky Mountains/Colorado & East Grizzlies are basically the Appalachians

New Hanover = (Heartlands is basically Nebraska all the way down to Arkansas in a nutshell like the real life Heartland region while Roanoke Ridge is Mississippi (Van Horn is based off a real life town in Mississippi not sure about annesburg)

Lemoyne = Louisiana Obviously

West Elizabeth = (Oklahoma , Kansas, central to southern Colorado)

New Austin = (southern Kansas , Texas , Arizona in a nutshell)

Christ, was I off! 

 

I always thought Ambarino was Colorado and the Grizzlies were the Rockies. 

 

I thought West Elizabeth was maybe Kansas. 

 

New Hanover i thought was Nebraska or Arkansas. 

 

Either way, it's such a beautiful world.

Except that you can ride a horse from Van Horn to Blackwater in about 15 minutes, making that about an 8 mile ride. That would make the Map less than 20 miles wide at any point.

So whats the verdict on Roanoke Ridge? Quite an interesting region of the game for me as climate wise it seems to be fairly warm up there.

I don't think any of the grizzlies is in Canada tho that'd be cool. If a separate country was in the game it would have been mentioned.

I think lemoyne is just Louisiana in it's entirety.

I always saw the new parts of the map as the states that are along the Mississippi, but the Serpent Mound is in Ohio in real life so I guess that doesn't really fit.

Obviously with the old part of the map as Texas/New Mexico areas...

Is there red soil in Louisiana? I wouldn't know, but I guess if it does than its possible that Lemoyne is completely based on Louisiana.
