    Oh yeah like the Prerunner/Crawler D Series. Guessing there were a lot of people who disappointed themselves expecting the update to include it, despite the obvious unfinished texture work, and the vehicle UI needing an overhaul.



    Just because something looks finished enough for a public release doesn't mean that it is.

    So they're working on the JRI refresh right? I think it is completley possible for the developers to add a town. Except, they change the location of JRI to be in Japan, not Hawaii. That would give us a new country. But, they might not. I do think it is plausable for this to happen, like how they added a seaside town on the East Coast refresh.

    That is an interesting idea! I personally doubt JRI would change it's location to Japan, because Japanese drive on the 'wrong side of the road' (like the British, Australian and others), and that requires modifications to the road network, and, more importantly- right-hand drive cars. We currently have two- the Miramar and the Pigeon, but that is not enough IMO to justify a right-hand drive map. Also, IDK if current AI code can deal with right-hand drive. It can probably be adjusted for it, but still...

    However, I believe a small town is a fair guess. Back when the devs first announced the remasters, I posted a lengthy post in the discussion thread, in the hope of highlighting bugs and also giving some of my ideas. One of the things I remember saying is that it makes no sense that JRI has a port, a quarry, and a small industrial site, yet there is no town. So where do the miners, factory workers and crane operators live? So I must agree- a small sea-side town seems quite possible.

    As a side note, JRI has a lot of interesting and unique places, but they are hidden quite well. For example, I remember way back, before I even knew about free-camera, and before the Hopper existed, I was trying for a good 20 minutes to drive into the volcano (with a D-series I believe), and eventually made it- it was awesome! And even though I have over 800 hours on Beam, JRI is still full of places I'm quite unfamiliar with, and that on it's own makes it pretty special, at least for me.

    nah all the existing things are not going to get changed lore wise, only just to be expanded upon.

    They cannot expect from us not to thinking about multiplayer now. So IF this is a multiplayer hint I could imagine Splitscreen support since they are working on the triple screen support.

    Looks like we have some evidence of the re-designed front fascia.

    There is a lot to analyze. New front end, new frame, new uplifts, new mirrors, new door handles, new cab and windshield, new offroad parts like light rack, new bumper, new crawler/prerunner progress.

    I think it's a "late" D35/45 front facia, judging by the indicators
