California Parish Name error

Post by D3adm0nk3y » Tue Jul 16, 2013 11:45 am

Real life California resident here! after the County San Bernadino spawned, I saw something very odd...

Riverside is in two places apparently! Here's a picture:

The top one is correct, which places it relatively east of LA.

the bottom one is Incorrect, Riverside is NOT South of Anaheim, or that close to San Diego.

The Bottom one should be renamed to "Fallbrook" or "Temecula"(Temecula is bigger/more populated) which location wise matches Escondido and Oceanside.
Thanks!

this maps loaded with errors of the like.


such as south carolina having two columbias, one of which is in the upstate area XD and of course SC not being part of the south...so insulting=p




that said, i believe the reasoning is that at some point the game must concede to being a game and not an atlas of the US ;)

actually curious as to how off the euro map is as well, im nowhere near enough familiar with that one to tell...

There are 4 or 5 in the UK world, mostly typos - eg lack of capitalisation for 2 parishes in Scotland, and general spelling mistakes, as well as the rather annoying Holton * Beckering in Lincs being asterisked.

As far as I can see, there are none of these problems in USA world, although it is a very big place.

Also: San Diego should be North of Chula Vista.

Right near where I am on the border between North and South Utah, there are two huntingtons. Right next to each other. I looked it up on bing maps, and Utah only has one huntington in that area.

Mecklenburg Parish / County North Carolina
Same Parish / County right across the Virgina line. Va has no Mecklenburg county

Liberties were taken in the making of the USA map, some fictional themes were created. The map isn't historically accurate.

There is a typo with a parish in North Arizona, Mont Trumbull, should be 'Mount'.

I know many of the parishes and capitals are not accurate in relation to each other nor the states in which they're located, and for a free to play game that's not too bad. But it would still be cool to have the entire map correct. :)
