    Tin foil hat time.

    The map teased in the rally video and the showreel video isn't just a rework of small island like East Coast and Utah, its an entirely new map. I can't find a stretch of road on current small island that resembles the one in the rally video, and the map featured in the showreel video has a scale that just feels too big to be the current small island. No roads or structures are visible in the shot, which is very difficult to do in current small island. I also can't find a similar location in current small island. The timeline makes sense too. B25 mitch finished West Coast back in 2017, and three years for a new map is totally reasonable. They have been using the assets and techniques used in the new map to also update the older maps along the way. It will include elements from Small island, port, and industrial (which will all be depreciated), and will probably still be set in Texas. It will probably take inspiration from an oil town on the Texas gulf coast. Small island has been essentially untouched since release, save for a small rework of the textures a long time ago, so they are most likely unhappy with the state of the map. The roads, layout and general feel of the island are very similar to Dry Rock Island, which was depreciated in favor of a new map, Jungle Rock Island. Why would the devs spend time updating a 7 year old map when they can create an entirely new one and combine three maps into one?

    There's my thoughts on it. I'm still expecting a rework of current small island, but hoping for a brand new map.

    Cool =)

    Do you think Jungle Rock Island will still be around, or do you think that will end up dying just Small Island USA is?

    I doubt JRI will go away, that already a re-imagined Dry Rock Island. It might get a makeover like East Coast did, but I think that it will stick around.

    We have clearly seen pictures of remasters for Port, Industrial Site, Small Island, and Derby Arenas back in 2018, so those maps are here to stay. Also removing maps would break content and such.

    All I want in life is a re-worked inline 6 for the D-15. The current textures remind me of the good ol' Rigs of Rods days.

    And maybe better textures for the underside of the Miramar?

    And for god's sake the V8 engines in the D-15 are too damn modern. Give me Toilet-Bowl Injection and pushrods for my 80's pickup, por favor.

    Make JRI fun to drive on. I've personally never been much of a fan of JRI.

    Charmander Volitile VR6, pl0x.

    Chameleon Variance hybrid maybe? ICE, electric, and CVT transmissions are all in-game. Combine and make a hybrid. Why not?




    What'll actually happen: Re-worked SI-USA (thank god finally), inline engines only for the Chamber of Villains, I cry myself to sleep at the lack of extra official Campaigns... or community-created campaigns...

    Those maps are Texas-based in theory more than in practice. The revamp for Derby Arenas got the level closer to its supposed setting, but there are no public roads, signage, or residential or commercial buildings to give it a sense of place. And you could just as easily replace the license plate design for the other four maps with a Norwegian one and say we've got four Scandinavian maps.

    Italy was in there, too. Plus the map reworks are probably taking up some of that labor.

    Thanks for answering my question =)
    Lol
    Exactly, there are no road signs on Industrial Site, Small Island USA, Port, or Derby Arenas. Now, it does make sense that there are no road signs on Port and Derby Arenas, but I feel like Industrial Site and Small Island USA would benefit from road signs. Also, you make a good point about the license plate thing.
    Agreed, crazikyle sadly forgot to mention that map.

    Anyways, I have 2 questions for users that are on this thread right now.

    1. What would you think of a Russian or any communist car/map in BeamNG.Drive?
    2. What would you think of a traffic light prop that is somewhat similar to the street light prop?

    That would be awesome! The Russian car industry is very diverse ranging from a cheap but reliable sedan (Moskvish) or a very tough utility vehicle (UAZ), and the list goes on.
    A Russian map would be also very fun, crappy roads, forest areas, maybe snow!

    I seriously doubt the Russians would have turned to an emergent manufacturer from Japan to kickstart a licensing plan to motorize the country...

    In real life, FIAT was chosen because it was an automotive giant... in a "friendly" country where the influence of the largest Communist Party in Western Europe was still so strong the Russians even renamed a city after its just deceased secretary.
