It was clearly said many times why it won't happen due to various reasons. And one of them is that most tracks aren't designed for large grids. 16 player limit already caused a few startgrid problems on certain tracks. Clockwork Carnage is an exception because of the car size.
Please stop asking about it.

Except by changing the starting grid in 4x5 or 5x4 ...

This wouldn't add much, except for a carnage at the start.

Still the same thing, most tracks are not large enough. Even if you can modify startgrids, you would need to change them on individual track, the game reads specified one from the .inf file, so that's not how you solve the problem. The only way is for the game to automatically switch to another grid when it has more than 16 cars.

But from my point in general, races with 16 players are usually plenty enough, the start gets messy already.
The whole more cars pls idea sounds mostly like a thing just for experimenting stuff or messing around. The game was never designed to be played with so many.

The update occurred at approximately 1 AM UTC today (April 12). If you have downloaded the patch before that, consider re-downloading it.

I'll have to get used to pressing up arrow twice instead of down arrow, to get into Options during a Single Player race, now... :P I wonder how long that will take me! ;)

Yes, it's a trend since v1.2, when there were beta and alpha builds, but nowadays it's used to differentiate between standard and shader ('s') versions.
