For near eight years, Grand Theft Auto 5‘s Mile High Club has remained unfinished. The skyscraper’s skeletal construction looms over the Pillbox South Station of Los Santos Transit, and it’ll possible keep that approach for some time longer. While GTA Online has seen the Diamond Casino open its doorways and Cayo Perico turn out to be a far-off vacation spot for robbers, GTA 5’s offline providing has principally remained untouched. It’s a state of affairs that begs the consideration of modders.
One group of gamers have banded collectively to finish the Mile High Club’s construction, and it’s clear they’ve large concepts. The undertaking’s lead architect, Kalit, tells me that it began as a small facet undertaking meant to assist them develop acquainted with modelling environments for videogames. Close to a yr later, although, and a accomplished model of the Mile High Club is now a slice of one thing a lot bigger.
Rags and Riches is a bit of fan-made DLC that fleshes out the Mile High Club and Facade Theatre’s interiors and exteriors.

Plenty is being saved below wraps proper now, although we all know that new weapons and automobiles are additionally in the works. It’s at present out there on Patreon, however a free model might be free when the mod is finished.
Rags and Riches may even have an internet part. Kalit tells us that the group is engaged on a FiveM model that’ll permit folks to make use of Rags and Riches of their GTA RP classes. The group hoped to have this prepared for the finish of February, although it would take some time longer.
Putting Rags and Riches collectively hasn’t been with out its challenges, then. The group behind the mod boasts loads of spirit and ambition, however putting buildings and characters you’ve created alongside Rockstar’s work is a tall order for anybody.
“The hardest half was attempting to make this entire block space match with the remainder of the vanilla map,” Kalit explains. “The high quality has to match the surrounding components, and it ought to feel and look like one thing Rockstar would do.
“We needed to redo numerous stuff to verify our work didn’t really feel misplaced on the map, so it’s not simply modelling and texturing the fashions and the work is finished. Some components nonetheless do really feel misplaced, and that’s one thing we nonetheless must put work into.”
