What about the map and the Project Sunrise topic from the Reddit Forum now?
At the moment we still lack almost all information about the new TDU SC.
Once again we can only speculate.

I do not know Brazil and have never been there.
Is there an 1:1 island in Brazil that could be considered for this?

Or is this complete Project Sunrise now Bullshit?

 

What do you think?

I have no idea. I'm looking at it right now and I would assume it's the 'tdu-sc' channel. The discord is a mess. I browsed through some of the tdu-sc channel and it's way off topic. Got a few people in there making suggestions though... Suggestions like having pets in your home🙄 Think the best way to do it would be to pm the mod or a dev.

Yes, it's really a mess. People don't understand that if they make a mess of it, things will be lost and nobody will read it at all.

Only one i can think out of head is Fernando de Noronha, but it's rather small. Beautiful though.

Most likely this is BS. 
I'll hit that it's Europe or Hawaii again.

....

After Milli said there is no suitable island I belive this too.

Hawaii is cool and brings back memories. But I don't want to see Hawaii again in the new TDU.
I'm not completely against it but maybe later on as a map extension.

I want to see something new, something memorable so that you can remember the game later.

Bringing Hawaii back is like comparing crew 1 and crew 2.
That was, in my opinion, the biggest mistake Ivory Tower made back then.
I hope KT Racing doesn't make the same mistake and brings us back a game that reminds us of a "TDU" after a very long time.

If it doesn't have all the usual flaws

Spoiler

(auto-brakes below ~50kph, backwards reflection, glitchy 8-ply only,  No: ... pedestrians, ignition off, turn signals,  proper mirrors,  fuel indicator/gas stations)

to name a few...

Then ... I'd be great with a few (5-10) modern regular "slow" cars -80 -2020 ..(not just 1 antique 2cv).. to enjoy the larger range difference to all the fast cars.. and lets not forget.. fun :).

In short.. low mid AND high .. not JUST high... (and no there's no better place for it) my 2 cents.

I'd really would like to go to Asia (Specially Japan, but in an place like Kyushu or Okinawa for being more coast island style instead of Tokyo and surrounding areas) or Australia this time.

We've overexplored US and Europe in almost all game genres, so we REALLY need something different.

And i doubt they'll bring an Game like TDU3 for the Southern Hemisphere (save for Oceania).

Brazil seems to fit for Forza Horizon, Call of Duty/Battlefield, and Grand Theft Auto (or any OTHER similar open world action-adventure game, like Mafia), but virtually impossible for TDU3's Island and "Quality of Life" Concept.

Okinawa would actually be pretty sweet. Size wise, it's smaller than O'ahu but bigger than Ibiza. It would also bring a good mix of urban and nature. It's truly an amazing peace of paradise. Kyushu would be great also, but it's a damm big island! 

Sadly though I don't think it would work with the whole TDU vibe myself as it doesn't have the pull or amour that Hawaii or Ibiza has. In the same way if I'm thinking of good driving roads, nice scenery, vibrant city life and 'The Highlife'...the French Riviera comes to mind rather than The Highlands of Scotland. 

 

For now All we can do is guess. I mean who'd to say it's even going to be an island?

Hope not. I don't want another game after FH3 and FH4 with a left hand traffic. I would love to see some greek Island, or Corsica.

However the most important stuff is the handling, which ruined TDU2 way back then. Lets hope for the best.

(edit, The Jackal's first post/rant above mine appears to have been removed, so my reply makes less sense now)

Welcome to the forums, Jackal.  I'm also Aussie - I think it's fair to say we don't have to worry about them picking Oz since TDU usually goes for islands (but not gigantic continent-sized ones) at ~ 1:1 scale.

 

USA is overdone imo (NFS are well overdue to feature somewhere different) but I don't think Europe is overdone.  I guess most players just want to go somewhere they can't visit IRL (which right now is just about everywhere beyond the local shops for us in Melbourne, haha).

I'm pretty sure the majority of locations that could be selected have speed limits and slow drivers.  But I haven't visited too much of WA besides Kalgoorlie and Karatha.  

 

Try using paragraphs next time - they're much easier to read than that wall of text  😄

California is well represented in The Crew 1 + 2, plus you mentioned the San Fran is in GTA V and Midnight Club LA.

I think the checklist for the TDU series tends to be:

* An Island that can be recreated in 1:1 scale or close enough.  Being an island means the world has no arbitrary borders and so is by nature "Unlimited"
* Coastal roads (obviously, it's an island)
* Twisty mountain roads with elevation changes
* Long highways for top speed
* Tunnels for sound appreciation
* Cities and built-up residential areas for extra immersion compared to NFS-style open worlds
* A rich/elite environment where supercars might not be too unexpected in real life

I don't see mainland Europe, America, Brasil (or any mainland) being used by TDU given that it traditionally has been based on elite islands.  Either way I can wait to find out more and explore a new location that I've hopefully never seen before.  I don't mind if they include O'ahu as a secondary or even DLC location but I wouldn't expect it to take primary focus.

The checklist you've got there @Ryzza5 is spot on for myslef!

If it was't for TDU aiming for "The High life" idea, you'd be limitless on locations! I mean take  the Isle of Man here in the UK, it's got good roads and a lot of wealth (Not a Tax dodge....) as well as nice scenery. But its hardly a sunny paradise!

What about Puerto Rico? It's a bit poor, but I think it would be a good size tropical island with elevation and a good road system.

Edit: The more I look at Puerto Rico the more I think it would be a perfect island for TDU

I really hope the game is more similar to tdu 1 than tdu 2. This could be huge, and with good car sounds, it will smash forza horizon 4. Im playing tdu 1 and man, what a game. The feel you get in the cockpit of the cars is not even comparable to the bullshit we get on newer games. It feels authentic and realistic. And that combined with car dealers, houses to buy, etc, is what make this game amazing.

      You got your dream car and you're driving on the island with a breathtaking sceneries. Driving on Oahu should be all about making you feel special. But wait... washed out, low quality textures somehow manage to ruin that whole paradise experience? Or you are just plain bored with TDU after spending countless hours driving from one end of the island to another? No more!
       
      Expect a complete overhaul of TDU world... Island Paradise will breathe a new life into (y)our TDU!
       
      Find out why we call it the ultimate environment mod for TDU!
       
      Starting from v0.9, due to the community feedback, IP is going to be ''divided'' into two separate installations - Full Edition and Lite Edition.
       
      While Lite Edition ''only'' got environment overhaul that should satisfy most of the crowd out there and give them countless hours of fun, Full Edition aims a bit higher. In short, added features like TDU2 GPS map, new GPS hud, IP TDU menu, IP car plate... will give this 4 year old game breath of fresh air. General overhaul will most likely keep you entertained long enough till the real deal, TDU2 come out in few months. And that's not all, as we continue to go toward v1.0, Full Edition will get even more features! So stay tuned!

      F.A.Q.
      Q. Do I have to own a legal version of TDU?
      Yes
       
      Q. How do I install the mod / how can I solve my issues?
      See the ReadMe in the archive, it will solve most of your issues 😄
       
      Q. Do I have to own the Megapack to play online?
      No. You need however the latest official version of TDU (1.66A)
       
      Q. Is there any mod incompatibility with the mod?
      Most of your mods should work (unless it implies executable modifications)
       
      Q. Is this completely free?
      This mod is, and will ever be 110% free.
       
      Q. Where can I download the source code or the server binaries to set my own server?
      This isn't possible at the moment (because it would be pointless to setup many TDU servers when the game work in P2P). If the server close, the binaries will be released.

      Q. Can I play with Xfire, Steam, MSi afterburner integrated into my game?
      No, because it will cause conflicts with the mod. You'll have to play without those
       
      Q. I get an error message on connection because of my username
      Read the instructions provided in the archive
       
      Q. Is there more features to come?

      Time to re-discover the island of Oahu.
      TDU Platinum pursue the objective to be more than a collection of many different mods in a pack, the objective is to deliver a whole new experience, a whole new way to play with endless possibilities to choose at your own demand, ready to go.
      The work being done is beyond the gathering of different vehicles, sounds and gauges from different online websites and packing them together, it goes further to new physics, brand new weather, compatible with HDiR, new world textures and also new music for background and radio statios.
       

      New Physics Over 880 vehicles Correct color names Dedicated camera for each vehicle New weather - HDiR compatible New map textures New radio stations Easily moddable Easy installation Optional Russian language Toolkit

      -Always remember to make a backup of your game before you perform any modification.
      - For existing profiles, it's recommended to sell your vehicles and stay only with an Alfa Romeo GT BEFORE you install TDU Platinum. 
      - If you're not feeling like selling all vehicles, just drive off the house with an Alfa Romeo GT BEFORE you install TDU Platinum, but this method might crash your game once you check some vehicles in the garage.

        Q. Why does some vehicles display an absurd Top Speed?
      That's because how TDU was codded. Sadly, to get the gear ratios to work as they should, you must set the car's Top Speed as the top gear speed. Which means, the maximum speed that the final gear could achieve, regardless of it's power or drag. Usually, vehicles that have an "Overdrive gear" will display absurd values, since the last gear is really long, with the porpouse of fuel saving.
       
       Q. Ok, but why it is actually the Top Speed value is lower than the final gear speed?
      That's because TDU, by standard, adds around 10% more top speed. So, if a car final gear speed is 330 km/h, if you set as 300 km/h, in-game the car will reach 330 km/h. Now, if you set 330 km/h, the car will actually be faster than it should, and will reach 363 km/h.
      Deducting 10% of the speed makes not only the final gear accurate, but every gear will top at the correct speed, if your gear ratios are correct, which means the speed you need to shift will also be accurate.
       
      Q. Why the car classes are broken and i have overpowered vehicles for it's class?
      Because that was the easiest way i found to get these high-power tunes and keep the game "easily moddable".  TDU will only understand a car class change if it reads a new entry on the database. That being said, i would need 4 entries in the car database, for 1 single vehicle, 1 entry being it stock, and 1 new entry for each tune kit.  That means instead of 880 vehicles, i would need at least 3520.  Not to mention that if someone decides to modify that 1 vehicle, they will need to modify the tuning its aswell.  
      That not only means it would take a long time, but that it would make the game much more complex to be modded, so i used the original upgrade system, that's based on % increase of the base vehicle, but sadly, it doesn't support class changes.
       
       Q. The traffic in my game is being glitchy and invisible, what do i do?
      In the Project Paradise Laucher, make sure to enable V-Sync, to lock your fps to 60. The game won't do well with higher fps.
       
       Q. The game is displaying too much brightness, what i did wrong?
      Usually the dealerships display a higher brightness than the road environment. But also, that could be caused by FX Tweak being enabled in Project Paradise Launcher. TDU Platinum weather system was developed to not require FX Tweak, if you enable it in the launcher, it may override the weather files.
       
       Q. The physics have been changed, but they seem the same?
      That's because the physics engine is the same, but TDU allows each car to have their individual physics worked on, and that's what's been changed. To match real data, because TDU has messed it up even on the original game.
       
       Q. TDUPE is not working?
      Yes it is, but unfortunately i've stumbled across an issue i thought i would have. This issue happens when the database has over a thousand entries, which is the case, since TDU Platinum's database has 1105 entries. So, to use TDUPE, you must follow these steps:
      To run TDUPE, you must open it as admin. Point your TDU database directory in the settings and click load. Once it has loaded the database, search for the Custom Car you replaced in the car list. Modify and Click save. (That is when the problem starts.) Because TDUPE can't deal with more than 1000 entries in the database, it will make the game crash, to fix that issue, you must open TDU Modding Tools File Browser. Extract the CarPhysicsData.db, located inside the DB.bnk. Decrypt CarPhysicsData.db using TDU UT (this tool i did not provided, but it can be found on the forums) Open it using notepad and set the number of "Items" as 1105, save and close. Encrypt the file again, using TDU UT. Replace the new CarPhysicsData.db inside the DB.bnk.  
         Q. Do i need the game or this is a standalone game?
      No! You need the game first, this is a mod and won't work on it's own.
