Yep, IMO GT4 (and LMP3) don't make sense in simracing (but they do in real life) unless you want grid fillers for Nords.I am honestly hoping for TCR. they are just more varied and fun to race imho.
I think you are mixing stuff there. He is talking about cockpits. Stuff like track map stays in the HUD which afaik will have this info since it will also be in htmlWell, that answers at least part of my question as well - so I guess things like proper track map or other things are unlikely to come soon, unless the supposed new plugin system is being worked on and could be therefore added by the community.
About cockpits tho I asked in Discord why not use the game API since it has a lot of info and link it to the cockpit for proper led settings, multi page lcd, etc. Didnt get an answer.
