This was so helpful for me. I'm hoping to adapt your tutorial to pull off something similar comparing modern satellite imagery with historical maps. No topo, so my steps should be simpler, but I'm a novice with Blender and you've really helped. Thanks!

Even Top Notch Artists will be replaced by AI. You have no idea what you are talking about. If you do, only very superficial. At the end you are only an employee. You dont have any contact or experience to the High End Echelons we worked on. In 20 years, 40% of workforce working today will be out of jobs. First we will get worldwide financial crash, then AI takes over. Admin will remember my words in not distance future.

Former GTA producer forms 5 new businesses
25 January, 2017
Former GTA producer Leslie Benzies has launched multiple studios to get his own piece of the video game industry. A new company, Royal Circus Games Limited, will focus on developing console, PC, and mobile games. It is stated that Mr. Benzies has also applied to the Intellectual Property Office with Royal Circus Games, so it seems that he has some great plans.

The new studio trademarked “Time for a New World,” which could become the name for the studio’s first game or something else.

Benzies has other plans though with his five businesses, all under the umbrella of Royal Circus. Benzies will also dive into VR at his VR-Chitect Limited, creating own line of VR headsets, glasses and software that will try to compete with PSVR, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift.

He also owns Starship Group and Everywhere Game Limited, but little is known about their plans. 

Benzies led the production of the Grand Theft Auto series from GTA III to GTA V, contributing to the beloved franchise eight times in total. 

In January 2016, we found out that Benzies left the studio. Then he filed a $150 million lawsuit against Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive to get unpaid royalties.

Key GTA developer accused Take-Two and Houser brothers of forcing him from company, withholding royalties. Former Rockstar North studio head Leslie Benzies was taking things to the court stating that Rockstar’s official story of how he left the Grand Theft Auto studio was a lie. The studio stated that the former head decided not to return to work.

Leslie Benzies knows a thing or two about dominating the video game industry, so we’ll keep an eye on his new moves.
