FH3 map from what we have is 8x7 miles, we need to see how much we are missing.Also according my own calculations (can be wrong) the airports of both maps are close in lenght, aprox. 1.3 miles.

The 2x world size comparison is accounting for the entire drivable area in the world. As open as FH2's world was compared to the original Horizon, there were still a lot of areas cordoned off.

I completely understand, there's a lot of places inside FH2 map that you can't drive. I'm more than happy with the new map and how much diversity it have.
 Rank: Racing Permit #104 Posted : Friday, July 8, 2016 12:33:05 PM(UTC) I believed I spotted the Radio Telescopes in the leaked map and compared it to the FH3 trailer where it shows the two buggies riding on a dirt road next to the Radio Telescopes. The Radio Telescopes are on top of the map west of the big city. This may rule out that there might not be much left of the map to go. I noticed in the trailer there is a big mountain that may act like a wall where the FH3 world ends. Or, maybe its just a mountain that we travel around and there is more to the map. What do you guys think? I hope there is more to the map going north.

Truly hope you guys used some of that extra space to put in a couple mountain roads! Forza Horizon is by far my favorite video game series but I know I speak for a lot of us when I say we just want to some mountains to conquer!

 Rank: Racing Permit #106 Posted : Friday, July 8, 2016 4:58:57 PM(UTC) I love how the clouds move around and the palm trees swing from side to side in the wind.I also think FM6 hit te nail on the head with the visuals of raining, it looks perfect. But the physics were way over the top to be fair, they shouldn't ruin your experience like FM6 but cause a slight kiss of performance like FH2

At 1:12, the car pass through what look likes a lot of solar panels, i'm trying to find that area on the leaked map, i can't find it. That means there's could be more places on the map... :-)Edited by user Tuesday, August 2, 2016 11:31:25 AM(UTC)  | Reason: Not specified

 Rank: B-Class Racing License #116 Posted : Wednesday, August 3, 2016 3:56:59 PM(UTC) They reckon you can see it from Tasmania sometimes but the odds are pretty low. Maybe there'll be a stormy Tasmania expansion with an aurora Easter egg sometimes visible .

Of course it simply may not be shown on the map but it makes me think that if there really is more map that it will be to the north of what we know.1) The solar panels ground seems to be dusty/dry so it would make sense to have it near the Outback.2) The city does get rather abruptly cut off to the north with the map we have.Pure speculation of course but fingers crossed.

This is from news.com.auI think the north and the west may be where the FH3 map cuts off, like in FH2 where it was north, east and west.

Makes overtaking very dangerous at night as there may be a massive roo or wombat dead in the middle of the road. Though it's mostly roos, wombats, hares and foxes. I have seen deer though. Brumbies (wild horses) are all over this area but there is only a few places they are a danger to cars.So the authentic Australian experience is a gory, splattery and hazardous one :D Click to watch Sim and Realword Driving Videos PC & XB1 Next Level Racing GT Ultimate v2 Fanatec Clubsport: Wheelbase v2.5 | Inverted Pedals v3 | SQ Shifter v1.5 | Universal Hub for XB1
