This mod will add the Laguna Seca map on your HUD radar and also on the pause-menu map.
It includes the track, adjacent roads, parking lots, buildings and land mass, all of which use original GTA IV patterns/colors.

Thanks! I wanted to do the CEA Speedway, but that map has too many col bugs (dirt acts as tarmac, grass acts as dirt) so I don't know if it's worth it.

If more people request it I might reconsider.

can someone pls help me when i use openIV he dont open any files and i selected the right directory pls help me! (i am using patch 1.0.7 with openIV 0.9)

Posted on May 24, 2011 10:57AM by dietosbambino
First of all you should get the latest OpenIV (0.9.1)

If your GTA IV directory is in C:Program Files, disable UAC.

Double check that you selected the right folder in Tools/Options, and don't forget to enable Edit mode.

@Krimzon unfortunately Spark cannot add files, which is very much needed for radar.img. You should try the latest version of OpenIV, it is much more stable and corrupt archives are not so frequent :D

thanks for the support Chipicao, i had to run openIV as an administrator so that was what i did wrong, i normally use sparkIV :p

But thank you so much for this map :p

pllz video Tutorial how to replace frontend_360.wtd and replace map4.dds with map4.png plzz help i replace fradarxxx.wtd and radarxxx.wtd with OPENIV.

Posted on May 25, 2011 9:00AM by king boy
It works
Posted on May 25, 2011 9:45AM by mrali95
@king boy OK, I'll try to make one. In the mean time, try this simple guide:

1. Run OpenIV and double-click the textures folder

2. Click "Edit mode" on the top-right of the window

3. Open the file frontend_360.wtd and locate the map4.dds texture

4. Click the "Replace" button from the top menu and select map4.png

5. Click Save (bottom right of the window)

I don't know about that...

While the original game icons are "unimpressive" to say the least, they match the GTA IV map in terms of colors and design. Making different icons would spoil the whole look of the game.
Posted on May 25, 2011 11:42AM by Chipicao
maybe you can make a new map but with much brighter colors like in real life and new icons? i know that would be a bunch of work :s

@dietosbambino There is already a Google map available for IV, I'm thinking about making a Laguna Seca map that matches. Of course I would need the author's permission...

Video tutorial added!

where is the google map for IV pls? :D
Posted on May 26, 2011 10:14AM by dietosbambino
@GTAGarage search for GTA IV Google Map Radar
Posted on May 26, 2011 12:08PM by Chipicao

Posted on May 26, 2011 2:25PM by dietosbambino

You are not supposed to just replace, you also have to ADD some files. That's why I recommend using OpenIV, when you insert files it will replace existing ones and add non-existing.

Just follow the video tutorial step by step and you can't fail.

Are you by any chance using an old IV patch? If yes, do you have the File check fix mod?
Posted on May 29, 2011 4:24PM by Chipicao
can someone help me please, i installed this using open IV 9.2 and when i play gta the track is there on the map but when i teleport there there is no track just water, so how can i get the track. thanks
Posted on July 13, 2011 3:12PM by Ashalmighty
@ashalmighty u must download the track first!
Posted on July 28, 2011 10:14AM by Alvin7ZSIS
this map looks amazing, just what i needed. but,you think you could do me a solid? I tried installing it, but i can't for the life of me get openiv 0.9.2 to work on my comp. says no access to msvcrt.dll, so i can only use sparkiv.

anyway my question is, do you think you could put all the needed files in, then save the radar.img file and include that in the download? I would really appreciate it.
Posted on August 11, 2011 6:39PM by HellOnWheels
Does it include the real track or do I have to find that somewerer else either way though its a really good job you should do this with other things like the desert rally map and stuff
Posted on October 15, 2011 6:41AM by exeloar
Could somebody please tell me how i could make a radar map for something that has no map.
