And I wondered just how distorted the map in the game really was. So, I decided to try and figure it out.
First, I stitched together a map in the game:
Then, I took a map of the US and started distorting it to fit the map. I put the areas I knew where they were to the same place on the Crew map. There's some really serious distortion in the mountain states. Like, all of the states between Idaho and Wisconsin are basically gone. Also, Death Valley is nowhere near it's real location which really messed things up.
The East coast seems much less distorted, but I don't know how well I lined up everything. There weren't as many obvious landmarks to work with. Anyway, here's the messed up map with location tags from the game map overlayed.
Figured I'd share this here.
