Rome wasn't built in a day, but I'm starting to get the impression that Cities: Skylines players could've made it happen. The game's only been out for a few days and someone's already made an eerily accurate recreation of Grand Theft Auto V's Los Santos.
Steam user grockefeller created a mod that adds the impressively detailed recreation to Cities. Here's how they describe it:
"Here's the completely built region of South San Andreas including the cities of Los Santos, Palomino, and Sandy Shores. Ever wanted to challenge and continue the vibrant metropolis of Rockstar Games? Now you can! You'll have to deal with multiple problems like employment, ecology, waste disposal, and water [sic] gestion."
Sounds pleasant! I find their failure to mention, you know, CRIME conspicuous, but whatever.
You can download Los Santos into your Cities: Skylines game with a quick click on Steam Workshop. Give it a go, if you're feeling so inclined. And now, more pretty pictures:
And here are a few shots from GTA V, for comparison:
