If your like me and, A) Do not live in america B) Have absolutely no idea how big a state is, then do not fear for I am here to show how big a state is.



Evidently some states are bigger than others but there is a clear average of state size.

Lets take the state 'WY' and compare the vice city map to it.



Wow look how big a state is compared to Vice City. This game is going to be massive.


I now notice this no way helps anyone at all get a perspective of the size as no one knows the size of WY in real life and I just resized all the images to a scale that suited me therefore there is no real logic or anything relevant in my size comparison.

Please don't close this thread just yet. It's been so long since I started a thread, and you can see I have no good ideas for new threads.

Ok heres a comparison for those who don't know how big a state can be.

I live in South Carolina, its a relatively small state, I'd say below the average state. Columbia the capital is almost exactly in the middle of the state. It takes an average of about an hour and a half to get there from pretty much anywhere in the state. So that means to go from north to south or west to east or vice versa and in between an average of 3 hours to cross the state in areas that have the most mileage. Now translate that into GTA time add a some more minutes to get it average and thats how long it would take for you to go from one side of San Andreas to the the other.

wot matters the most is how they fill the size of the game. if they just have big stretches of ground or sea, they can claim its 5 or 6 times bigger, but it aint really that gud.

they will fill it tho. rockstar wudnt cheat us. wud they.
Okay lets first start off with wot,then its,aint,gud,tho,wudnt, and don't forget about wud. And don't get me started with all your other posts and i misspelled once and that's because I was typing fast. And also maybe you should use proper grammar as well.

ya know, its always annoyin wen sum1 corrects u for ur spellin.

its even more annoyin (and amusin) wen they cannot spell themselves,

quote graymonkey44
Maybe the won't cheat us if you spell better.

I think it's 6 times the programming than in VC, so all the programming and data that went into VC, there's 6 times as much in SA.

Atleast that's what I thought, I could have sworn. Oh well.
