 QUOTE (NEONPOWER2 @ Tuesday, Jun 11 2013, 21:01) i donīt really care about the size of the map that much , but i do think what rockstar included , by saying the map is 3.5 as big as rdr map , is the whole area of the mountains too , means the whole landmass the huge mountains in 5 have ( because they go vertical they have more landmass as if you look from above ! ) ... what do you think ? could that be a possible explanation for the map being 3.5 as big as rdr ?

Nope, I don't even think they have tools for that. Why should they? Landmass is most likely a 2D measurement, as in map size.

TBH; virtually every coding house, that has anything to do with three dimensional modelling, would have a simple library routine for calculating the surface area of a 3 node polygon. Here's ours from memory:

 CODE float a = Sqr((X1 - X2) * (X1 - X2) + (Y1 - Y2) * (Y1 - Y2) + (Z1 - Z2) * (Z1 - Z2)); // length of each side of the trianglefloat b = Sqr((X2 - X3) * (X2 - X3) + (Y2 - Y3) * (Y2 - Y3) + (Z2 - Z3) * (Z2 - Z3));float c = Sqr((X3 - X1) * (X3 - X1) + (Y3 - Y1) * (Y3 - Y1) + (Z3 - Z1) * (Z3 - Z1));float s = (a + b + c) / 2;return Sqr(Abs(s * (s - A) * (s - b) * (s - c)));

All you need after that is x,y,z coord arrays and your triangle pointers and Bob's your uncle.

Sorry to sound like a pedantic smart arse, but I've just pulled a 12 hour night shift and I'm feeling grumpy.

BTW; You lot have done a fantastic job with these maps.

It's a cut of North America's map.

Ah, ok. Sorry for being a pillock.

The trouble is, once you've seen one shopping centre, you've seen a mall.

Boom Tish.
