Visual overhauls to the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V are nothing new, of course, but this complete overhaul of the Naturalvision mod is something else.
Now called NaturalVision Remastered, its creator promises that despite how good everything looks the actual performance is “similar to vanilla GTA V”.
Here’s a trailer:
As PC Gamer point out, the mod went a little further than just moving some sliders around and changing the lighting. Razed, its creator, spent over 1200 hours on the mod, which included “more than 40 hours of video footage, hundreds of photos and researched a variety of neighboring districts within the Los Angeles and Salton Sea areas” so that he could “produce the most realistic visual experience currently possible with GTAV’s game engine.”
Razed says that there’s also video game inspiration for the mod’s look, which comes from games like Forza Horizon 3, Watch Dogs and, interestingly, Grand Theft Auto IV.
