Does anyone know if there's any intention of more maps/expansions like the France/Italy one? Obviousy I am biased but I'd like to see a UK map

I was talking to Jay Tummelson at a convention a couple of weeks ago, and while "taking the pulse" of the Power-Grid-playing public, he mentioned that Friedemann Friese was working on maps for Austria and China, but due to the challenges of those maps (lots of hydropower, among other things), he wasn't sure when or how they'd come out.

Jay definitely wants to release more maps, but isn't going to do it until he and Friedemann are both happy with them.

I think a map for Australia would be very easy to complete.

Each state (Western Australia, Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia) become your six regions. Tasmania can be included with Vic, if you like or just have no cities displayed.

Large connection costs across the country, cheap connections along the eastern coast.
Coal oil and garbage begin as normal, uranium starts with 1 less than normal, remove the 11 from the game, Begin with the 12 (instead of 13) on the top, and improve the coal supply by 1 each turn.

It's so easy I'm almost tempted to make one myself...
Finding seven powered locations in the Northern Terrritory might be the only challenge.

Yeah I was torn on that, but ultimately we don't have any nuclear plants anywhere except Lucas Heights which really doesn't supply power. It's more of a research facility.

And since we give it all away, it's not readily available on our market.

(And really, do we need the Australia board to be just like France - I thought it good to take a different angle.)

We use a lot of coal though.

I'd like to see a map for Canada.
Maybe it could be used an "expansion" for the US map, to give even more choices in starting regions?

I've also thought of Canadian maps for Railroad Tycoon and Power Grid. But then I realize that the population mostly lies near the Southern border, and that the useful part of the map would be very short and wide.
