    speculation of a new map of the future: i think if there is a new map i think it would be a African country with off road paths because they started adding a lot of off road type of cars into the game so maybe this could become true idk.

    I think an Australian map is more likely because idk it just fits a driving game more

    Would defiantly be interesting to see a left hand drive map, as someone who lives in a left hand drive country. However being that there are only 2 RHD vanilla cars it would be a little bit pointless imo. Still a neat concept

    The current Grid, Small, Pure is still using the ground texture from the original Gridmap.

    Wow! I've somehow missed this completely. Back when the remaster came out I remember I was surprised that there are no residential buildings, not even abandoned ones. I've got to find some time to boot up Beam and find out where this was intended to be located... I wonder if it's remnants of a scrapped concept, or a WIP that will eventually find it's way into the map!

    Ah yes, Toronto, NSW. How could I forget.

    I doubt that we'd see a dedicated off road map, because arguably, Utah/JRI already is one. Every map, more or less, has off-road trails and dirt paths. Frankly, I think we've probably already gotten all of the maps that we could get; I would be in support of an Australian map, perhaps one from Western Australia with the ocean, a decent sized town, and the desert. The only other archetype of map that some complain that we don't have is a dedicated city map, but I doubt this would actually be developed, since WCA's city is perfectly adequate.

    From now on, once the remaining maps are remastered, I'd wager that the only additions will be feature-based, like career mode, progression mechanics, a new garage mode, UI, etc. I think we're just about done for content.

    We still do not have any Central/Eastern European maps, that should be solved by the ETKDEC remaster though. Apart from a large city map, I could see the devs adding a snowy Northern European map along with winter tires.

    They already said that if they would implement these features, they would do it properly, so it will be a long and complicated process. They have other thing planned before this, so I would not bet on seeing this in the near futur

    Yeah, I know haha. Ive followed the game since 2013 and I know they said if they do it they'd do it properly. I just like food for thought :D

    I do not believe that they've ever promised that.

    No, they didnt, thats what we were saying. They said if they were to implement it. They would do it properly. Which is 100% the right thing to do

    So I wonder if they add another european map, whether they might consider a big east coast or southeastern US city map. They have west coast as a large city map, so why not make a big city for the east as well?

    You know, I wouldn't be surprised if the Wendover gets a sedan version (like it was originally planned to be) alongside the coupe as the Buick LeSabre and the Oldsmobile 88 of the same era offered both a coupe and sedan.

    I also did a little bit of research and the LeGran and Wendover (provided there's a sedan) could very well see police versions, as the Chevrolet Celebrity (a platform mate with the Cutlass Ciera, which is the car the LeGran, and especially it's facelift closely resembles) had a factory police package, and the Pontiac Bonneville (the obvious inspiration for the design and name of the original Wendover) saw use with a number of police forces, notably Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
