    if they revamped the ETK center, i think they should expand it and make it into a Germany map instead. That would be interesting

    Agreed, but with the old map still available in the repository, for low-specs users

    A Germany map could be really cool. There's tons of potential for Germany as a map because there's so much stuff that would be perfect for a car game. There's the N-Ring, the Autobahn, scenic drives, and more. Definitely could see it coming..

    Would be too similar to East Coast, USA IMHO. Australia would be a much more likely choice for the next map.

    Australia is more similar to Utah than East Coast to Germany.

    If they did hypothetically make an "Australia" map and they wasted its potential by setting it in the "Outback", I would be so annoyed.

    Yeah, really good idea!
    But more like a complete remaster that include the old ETK center in it, instead of a revamp of ETK center map.
    For integrate an autobahn, the map needs to be bigger (between 4km² and 16km², to fit standards map size)

    Not at all.
    The terrain can be have some little similarities, that true.
    But the road (signalisation, road shape and size, authobhan, toll that not exist in usa), city architecture and plan, vegetation, and a lot of other details and atmosphere in general, all is completely different.
    And I don't thinks that ETK center is near of the sea.

    On other side, a second European map would be a nice addition in term of diversity, because there are so many different biomes than can be not shown in Italy map (that which looks a lot like the south of France in my opinion^^)
    Also, Germany can be have some similarity with Poland and some other Eastern Euro countries, and I think that can satisfy a part of Beamng community :)

    It's still not big enough of a difference. Road signs and the appearance of buildings don't really change much gameplay-wise.

    The Forza Horizon 3 map was so amazing at portraying Australia. As someone who travelled around the country, it was crazy being able to know exactly where i was based on scenery alone. Australia has one of the biggest ranges of species in the world, due to our amazing range of habitats and biomes

    So, Hirochi Raceway and Automation are the same map and have the same gameplay because they are both tracks?

    Okay, the road sign don't change the gameplay,
    But the road type change it drastically.
    There is a big difference between EU and US roads, both apparence and driving way.

    And this is not only the type of building that could change, but the whole plan of the town.
    Instead of USA, there is not squared roads, but the allotment of buildings is way different, which inevitably changes the way to get around in cars. (check google maps if you're not convinced)
    Also, the terrain could be drastically different, if they take exemple on the nearby-mountain and high altitude terrain.

    For the similarities with ECUSA, there is some picture from different place in Germany, and for me, any kind of ressemblance with East Coast. (of after 1liter of whisky, maybe..)









    In conclusion, if they decide to remaster the whole "ETK center map" to create et brand new Germany map, they have a lot of choice in term of terrain type to create a totally new terrain, never seen in BeamNG.
    so much that become impossible to speculate on it.
    --- Post updated ---
    Yes, it would be an amazing map, but for have a decent biome transition between outback, jungle, savanna, the map may be bigger than all map ever created on BeamNG, (maybe 8164mx8164m)
    But this is technically possible, so.. why not ✌

    ps: very beautiful pictures! they makes you want to travel it with a big D-series Prerunner ^^

    OK so this is via the Link that was posted last page.

    SO they are working on the sedan.
    so the DEV compered it to a Supra
    SO maybe it will be RWD with a inline 6 ( least inline 6 version )

    And maybe a coupe version who knows.


    ME thinks maybe its a German Chassis

    But with a Japan Body.


    Like what supra and BMW did.


    Or a all new car..


    But UGH cant wait for more info :D

    ( i bet right as GTA remasters comes lol. on my birthday what hype :D )

    Bruno only compared the rear subframe to a Supra, and a lot of cars have a similar type of subframe, even sedans ^^
    Personally, my pronostic for the new car is always a modern muscle (type charger 2015/17)

    However, the devs can made a coupé version of this for the lore model.. a coupé Charger 2015.. hmm.
    IRL, the Challenger do the job really well, but ingame.. with a bit of imagination, all is possible :)

    i've found this, and i'ts really beautiful! imagine this ingame called "Gavril Barstow coupé 2019" (with sedan version and some hellcat/demon lore edition aswell)

    I know we have a "San Amaro" sign, but do we have any proof that it was an actual location accessible in the map?

    There was an unofficial video posted earlier in this thread that had Mitch describing something about level design. WCUSA came up in it and he showed an artist's map of the original level. However, San Amaro was causing major performance issues, so it was kind of haphazardly cut off of the level right before it was released, IIRC. It does explain why the level feels incomplete, as it explains all of the roadblocks and strange other cut offs.

    Now that the map has been optimized they could add it back
