GTA 5 Map Re-Created in Cities: Skylines
Unfortunately, Los Santos is in debt.
Cities: Skylines launched earlier this week to generally positive reviews and the open arms of the modding community. That city management game already has thousands of user created assets posted to its Steam Workshop, which now includes a recreation of Grand Theft Auto V's Los Santos and surrounding areas.
"Fan of GTA V? Here's the completely built region of South San Andreas including the cities of Los Santos, Palomino, and Sandy Shores," modder Steam user grockefeller says in the item's description. "Ever wanted to challenge and continue the vibrant metropolis of Rockstar Games? Now you could! You'll have to deal with multiple problem like employment, ecology, waste disposal, and water."
The mod will let you oversee the city and watch it go through its cycles, but unfortunately you'll need a couple of mods to make it work. Most importantly, you'll need unlimted money, as Los Santos is in quite a bit of debt and operates at a deficit.
You can find the mod here.
GameSpot's review of Cities: Skylines gave it an 8/10 for its realistic city-building game mechanics based on a sound understanding of zoning. Yesterday, publisher Paradox also revealed that Cities: Motion became its fastest-selling game to date, with 250,000 copies sold in the first 24 hours since it launched.
