OSM-like driving game

I was thinking about how cool it would be if there was an open world game that was similar to the OpenStreetMap. Community-contributed 3D buildings, roads, signs, etc (with existing OSM data as a place holder) and openly available terrain and satellite imagery. I don’t know how feasible it is but I just wanted to share this idea.

Like this?

Or like this?

The last one looks interesting but unfortunately it’s focus isn’t driving. The first one seems to be online only and only a few preset cities also.

While it’s not open world, I tried getting OSM data into SuperTuxKart a few years ago: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/SuperTuxKart

It works, and it would probably look much better nowadays due to the progress of both the OSM tools and STK’s engine, but I never got around to polishing it to make it easy to produce your maps of your own city with this process.

There’s no doubt that there’s a lot of potential here. After all, even some commercial games like XPlane use OSM data quite heavily. But making it work well, and actually fun to play, is a lot of work even if one starts by modding an existing game. (I’ve always wondered whether one could build OSM-based maps for ETS2, for example. :))
