Over on the map modding side of the spectrum, new modder l3mmy had his latest offering the form of Rock Island for San Andreas. l3mmy reports the new island to have all-new buildings and interiors; all connected to the main San Andreas map via 5 different locations. Spawn points, pickups and parked vehicles have already been scattered around the new land, and further updates are to come soon. Click below:
