    I really think about space outside the map. Virtual City? Car Arena for stunts?

    The ramps just off of speed driving lines now. Literally some kind of mess: big empty spaces and too closed stuffs what even hard to drive over at speed and between.

    Little sceneries like "town scene" which would contains some houses (like now the trees and the muddy area)

    Hmm... I’d say we should get the grid texture again .. sorta like Grid, Small, Pure but changed for Gridmap
    Maybe like 0.3 GridMap

    Maybe a new version of the tubes with cubes (heh). Like turn it into a whole vehicle obstacle course with speed bumps and dodging the cubes obviously

    Also I think map must have some standard tools there: crushers, weight pad, angle pad and more...

    Making a drag strip area (with the same features as WCUSA) would be nice for those with lower spec pc's.

    Some sort of short interstate, outside of the outer ring, just to test highway cruising/automatic kickdown times.

    A more strenuous grade test (like automation) but with more ramps/different surfaces.

    I'd suggest adding a few more test-object-variatons, like a rollover-jump tester, which could look something like this:
    BeamNGdrive-0214011370-RELEASE-x641202202117_47_05.png
    Or a maze for cars?

    Maybe even bring back the techdemo "loop"?

    (yes I downloaded the techdemo just to show this)

    maybe sand, mud, ice, drag strips that go uphill like what you have now but curved uphill

    at default spawn there isn't much behind you, maybe a snowy/icy area?

    I think it’d be cool to have a little grid map city somewhere. Maybe even a grid map racetrack of some sorts. Maybe some bigger stunt jumps with landing ramps and you gotta get the speed just right? I love visiting grid map and running a silky frame rate on my lower spec pc so I’m super pumped to hear of gridmap getting some more love. Love you devs so much, beam ng for life!
