Investing over 400 hours of labor into this project, this task was spurred on by the extra free time brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Revealed to Kotaku, Riccobene’s main profession was hindered do the Coronavirus, and as a result, he needed something challenging to occupy his time, which he then landed on the idea of either making a 3D map of GTA V or Red Dead Redemption II.

Using a custom script that scans terrain and buildings, Riccobene comments on the technique with, “It runs in-game and collects ground elevations in a 500-1000 meter radius around the player when you press a hotkey adding up to 1,000,000+ data points per scan.” As the game loads different portions of the map, over 100 hours were required to map out various spawn points.

With 500 million different points on the map scanned, the next step required sections of the map to be 3D printed where printing time varied from a few hours to 12 hours depending on the complexity of the terrain. Having over 200 hours already invested in his next project, Riccobene revealed that a Red Dead Redemption II

Take-Two is working on three more remasters or re-releases

PC Gamer 08 August, 2021 - 11:13am

The releases will join Grand Theft Auto V's expanded edition and Grand Theft Auto Online Standalone in 2022.

Earlier this year, rumors swirled surrounding a remake of Grand Theft Auto 3, as well as its spinoffs Vice City and San Andreas. Those rumors remain unsubstantiated and unconfirmed. Nonetheless, they would fit Take-Two's remaster strategy, which relies on full remakes of older titles and slight updates to newer ones. Last year's Mafia: Definitive Edition is a great example of that in action. They might also fit in with the recent legal actions Take-Two shot out around Grand Theft Auto 3 mods.

Rockstar Games will release Grand Theft Auto V: Expanded and Enhanced for the latest generation of game consoles, as well as the standalone version of Grand Theft Auto Online, on November 11th. Kerbal Space Program from Private Division will also be released for current-gen consoles this year.

Take-Two has had a very aggressive release schedule in the past few years, and has announced plans to release 62 games by 2024. (Follow the link for our guesses on what they are.) They also plan to announce a new franchise "very soon," which some say is going to be the leaked Marvel X-Com game.
