The map is where you can start to build up different surroundings such as Nightclubs and Buildings. Each location has a map and you cannot access your block from another location but the one you were in when you bought the block. Block's cost £75,000 to buy and then they have a sell value of £37,500. You must decide where you want to locate your block by clicking the squares on the map, this will bring up a menu on the right side of the layout where your quick stats were located. You may already see blocks that have been taken by other people in game. You cannot take someone else's block you must purchase a block that has not been used.
Moving around the map
The map can easily be navigated by using the Up, Down, Left and Right arrows that are positioned around the map itself. There is also a jump to position box directly below the map which can be used for travelling long distances across the map when you don't feel like pressing one of the directional buttons many times. The Go To feature does not take you into a specific block, only to its location on the map. To visit the block simply click on it and view your options on the right hand column.
There are 4 main sizes for blocks, the first is an empty size which will display no image and will have no owner. When buying your first block it will have a Small size as you will have little buildings. As you fill your block up your size will increase from Small to Medium, and then Medium to Large with Large being the highest size possible. You can tell the difference from the sizes by either viewing the image before you enter a block, or by hovering your mouse over the block to display the size and number of buildings in the block. The more buildings that you have in your block, the bigger the block will be.
