SOMEBODY MAKE THIS STAT!!!! I WANT THIS ON THE RENDERWARE ENGINE THEN THE R.A.G.E. ENGINE FOR FURTHER REFINEMENT. I WANT THE GTA VC HD FOLKS AND THE VICE CRY FOLKS TO DO A COLLABORATION SO THIS BECOMES THE BEST MOST DETAILED VICE CITY EVER!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh man, between this map and all the concepts you have in that forum thread, you've about got me drooling and wishing that GTA V was set in Vice (don't get me wrong, I am PUMPED for Los Santos, but Vice would be glorious)! Oh well, there's always GTA VI.
One of my favorite parts is oddly the marshlands. Man, that could be spooky at night, especially if they pulled a Red Dead Redemption and added animals. Imagine wading through the swamp, only to be attacked by an alligator! Yikes.
Oh, and even though I'm a Saints Row fan*, I loved your parody "Saintz".
* although GTA wins every time, in terms of story, character and atmosphere. If GTA is The Simpsons in its prime, Saints Row is Family Guy.
Umm, No hablo español. Voy a tratar de traducir Google una respuesta. Esto no es un mod, ni nada en la producción, lamentablemente, es sólo un concepto que escribió y diseñó en mi tiempo libre. Me alegro que te haya gustado. Disculpas si esto está muy lejos, no hablo español y utiliza Google Translate - Gracias por ver!
[I'll try to Google translate a response. This isn't a mod or anything in production unfortunately, it was just a concept I wrote and designed in my free time. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Apologies if this is way off, I speak no spanish and used Google Translate - thanks for viewing!]
I read the story in the link and I loved it's very in touch with the GTA Style, but I have to ask when Ray attacked Giacopelli with a crowbar did it leave a scar or something cause that would be a good character design, you know distinguish him a bit?
woah... a comment from Matt Laskowski on my work ...
A theme park is the big thing I'm missing, once I posted the thread with this map in it I realized I needed a theme park - I just never got around to doing it. I should fix that soon and update this map (It's looking pretty ugly in it's old age, I could clean it up a bit).
If you're interested in Vice City you might wanna check out the GTAV: Vice City concept thread that I made, which this map is from: [link] - I think you might enjoy it.
Anyway thanks for the comment and for checking out my stuff!
Why wouldn't Tommy's mansion exist? GTA games always stick to canon... if it was set in the future, I doubt they'd ignore everything that happened in Vice City. I think the biggest flaw in your entire idea is that they got Vice City right the first time. If they did it again, they'd essentially have to remake the entire map like you have... and then it wouldn't be Vice City anymore.
Yeah, due to the lack of roads the police wouldn't be able to drive there; The land also makes it tricky for larger police boats and the trees make good cover from choppers - so being chased by the police into the marsh and losing them is very possible and would be pretty fun and exciting imo.
Now I see you added the minigun. Not that I dont like it but....you know. The thing with realism. That thing has 290kg of recoil and the batery only weighs 40kg. How about putting it on a Patriot and when you reach 6 stars, you have the land version of the Anahilator. Why not add the m16 with m203 nade laucher...you know, Tony Montana style, or should I say Ray Melendez style
The minigun isn't a new addition? It was in the project from the start. Sure, it's unrealistic but you can sacrafice a little bit of realism in return for a fun weapon - it was one of the most fun to rampage with in previous GTAs imo. As fore the M16, I have the M4 which is a lighter version and shares 80% of the parts with it and looks pretty much identical I don't think i'll be making many more revisions to the weapons soon, I've got other features to add first
I must admit I have never felt a need to, and i've never really wanted to have the next GTA in Vice City due to the fact that, like R* said before GTA IV, they redid Liberty City once more because they felt like the city didn't turn out as a very good rendition of New York as they wanted, and that they felt like no other game had done it either...
For them to recreate Vice City would be a bit risky seeing as how everybody loved that game and the map... There's a risk that people instead say "hey this isn't Vice City... R*, I am disappoint!"
...And I've just not felt attracted to the idea... But after seeing this fantastic fan map (with legend) and imagining to possibly be roaming Vice City again (as if new) with the vibe and music that comes with it, I really got the feeling that, damn, I really want this after all...
So, at least now I'm open to the idea... But I still think there's a risk in remaking Vice City and I wont desert to really wishing and hoping that it's Vice City just for that cause...
Whatever R* is doing with the next GTA i'm sure it's going to be awesome though...
Hey man, i am not trying to be funny but you should take little Haiti out of there, because of the earthquake etc. Otherwise, amazing, i also saw your thread on gtaforums, thats the best i have EVER seen, honestly. How can i suggest something to you via message on gta forums? Thanks, and keep up the great work. Nathan.
Oh yeah, that didn't even occur to me when I made this... But it's a rather important location in Vice City, so idk - I'll see if I can maybe work around it or something. Thanks for the comment though man, I'm glad you like it Just send me a personal message on the forum if you have any ideas or suggestions
