Map Size Thread

The article that mentions the magic number 49 has mistaken KM for MILES!

 

49km = 30 miles.

 

If RDR is around 6m sq...

 

GTAV landmass is 21m sq (roughly RDR x 3.5)

The water is 10m sq (roughly RDR x 1.5)

 

31 miles square converted to km is 49.8. The number 49 is close to accurate - the unit was wrong!

The real map appears to be 5% 3% smaller than my estimate.

 

EDIT: oops, but good oops.

Is it accurate to compare RDR river size with the ones on the GTA V map? RedDeadRedemptionMapa2.jpg

That's unnecessary because we've worked out the exact scale of the RDR map in meters and feet and the BradyGames map helpfully has a scale printed on it.

Just remember that units are not the same measurement from game to game.

SIMPLE AUTOCAD:

LAND MASS: 18.36 sq.mi.
PERIMETER OF LAND MASS: 21.6 miles
ALAMOS SEA: .49 sq.mi.
EXPLORABLE WATER (dark blue ocean + sea, not including rivers): 7.16 sq.mi.

It's really not that hard.

This is the scale using Magic_Als scale, but it seems like LC is WAAY to small. Can someone check me on this

This guy here at reddit made a very detailed analysis of the map. He scaled them correctly and put all 3 maps, IV, SA and RDR, on GTA V map.

The result you guys can see here.

 

Anyone else saying that the map is small? hahaha

Good work Deff. I think the reason why LC looks even smaller now is because of those extra pieces of land below the airport and docks which make it look even longer.

Quit f*cking posting that reddit guys f*ckin' bullsh*t. He's a f*cking idiot who did all his calculations in the incorrect scale. That picture is COMPLETELY wrong.

Sorry to say but that guy on reddit is wrong. He used the wrong scale. The line he used wasn't 5,000 feet but 3,000 feet which makes his map 50 % bigger than it really is.

Isn't there an official scale in the left bottom corner of the map?! The upper line goes to 5000ft, lower to 1609m meaning 1 mile. I remember being told RDR had a ~50km2 map..

 

I copied the scale on the map and this tells tha total length to be ~14mi and width ~10mi

Now that the cat's out of the bag, Rockstar should just post an accurate model of Los Santos, compared to GTA IV, RDR, and San Andreas.
