Las Vegas, officially the City of Las Vegas and often known as simply Vegas, is a city in the United States, the most populous city in the state of Nevada, the county seat of Clark County, and the city proper of the Las Vegas Valley. Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city known primarily for gambling, shopping, fine dining and nightlife and is the leading financial and cultural center for Southern Nevada.
The city bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World, and is famous for its mega casino–hotels and associated entertainment. A growing retirement and family city, Las Vegas is the 29th-most populous city in the United States. The city is one of the top three leading destinations in the United States for conventions, business, and meetings and is one of the wealthiest major cities in the country. In addition, the city's metropolitan area has more AAA Five Diamond hotels than any other city in the world, and is a global leader in the hospitality industry. Today, Las Vegas is one of the top tourist destinations in the world.
Established in 1905, Las Vegas was incorporated as a city in 1911. At the close of the 20th century, Las Vegas was the most populous American city founded in that century (a similar distinction retained by Chicago in the 19th century). The city's tolerance for numerous forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of Sin City, and has made Las Vegas a popular setting for films, television programs, and music videos.

Satellite view of McCarran International Airport. This version is smaller than the real life airport, made due to lack of space available xD..only the runways are close to real life.

This is the first time I've tried to recreate a USA city. Tried as best as possible to recreate all casinos and hotels. It took me nearly 3 months to do this far, as I had to look at references using photos and street maps of Las Vegas.
More Notable hotels not created are the Excalibur, MGM Grand, Caesars Palace, The Mirage, Bally's, Circus Circus. They are hard to create. Instead of these, I placed hotels, other casinos, malls and high-class apartments.
This is possibly an almost accurate rendition of Las Vegas. (NOTE THE MAP IS A MODDED FROM THE ROCKY DESERT)
Let me know what you think... TQ...
Viva Las Vegas!
I will no longer be hosting XLNation as of March 1, 2017. Skullz613 will be taking the reigns of the site in early 2017 and XLNation will be moving to a new web hosting service. During that transition there will be an interruption in service of up to two weeks. Skullz613 is now a full administrator of XLNation. Be kind to him.
