Red Dead Redemption 2 feature 4

Red Dead Redemption 2 gets an unofficial Map Editor

Red Dead Redemption 2 came out in 2019 on PC and since then we haven’t seen any major mods for it. However, that may soon change as Lambda has released an unofficial map editor for it.

According to Lambda, this is the most advanced map editor for Rockstar’s title. This editor will allow you to “create new maps, game modes or anything you like.” And, since Rockstar has not released any modding tools for this game, this may very well be the editor that most modders will start using from now on.

By using this map editor, modders can export to ymaps & import ymaps straight in the editor. Moreover, they can use runtime scripts in their maps to control virtually anything without the annoying compiling and code building. Additionally, they can place pedestrians, vehicles, pickups, objects and more wherever they want.

Speaking of RDR2 maps, modder ‘RedMaxBR‘ has released some custom maps in an attempt to recreate Red Dead Redemption’s locations. These are really cool maps, and we highly recommend checking them out.

Let’s just hope that Rockstar and Take-Two will not take down this unofficial map editor. Lately, Take-Two has been shutting down numerous GTA mods. Take-Two’s CEO stated that while they are flexible, they will take down any mods that threaten its economy or when there is bad behavior. And since this map editor may threaten the game’s economy, Take-Two may very well take it down.

But anyway, you can go ahead and download the map editor from here. You can also find numerous custom maps for RDR2 here.

Have fun!
