I would like an edition with hundreds of tiles. Each tile with at least one official clarification written on it.

Yes, this too please!  Or castles of Europe... pull in all the countries where we've seen fan made castles or monastaries expansions as official releases.

…We’ve already had train and prehistoric spin-offs…
Train?

Edit: ok, Gold rush

I would go the other way: Carc für 3, a 40-tile (start tile plus 13 turns per player) travel-tile-size game in a miniature travel bag with scoreboard.  Regular road tile count is reduced to make room for three Inns, two Fliers, two Hills, two Ferries.  Pennants in cities are replaced by a special but subtle “40” banner that scores like trade goods.  Players each get 1 bridge and 6 regular meeples (5 in play plus one to score).

Alternatively, release base game and all expansions in travel-tile size.  Maybe as a “little big box”?

Is it Christmas? Ok my list, in order:
- winter/summer expansion
- base game with wooden tiles
- a solution for a good storage of all expansions

That would be great.
To meeple or not to meeple, that's the question

I use a tackle box(multiple) that fits everything really well with all the tiles I have. Something official would be cooler though

I think a Southern France expansion with 6 Monasteries, 6 Cathedrals, and 6 Castles depicting places in old Languedoc would be amazing.

I couldn't agree more!

the game is still supposed to take place in and around Carcassonne!

Alas, I'm afraid that train left the station the moment they added modern circuses to the map. I mean, I too would like the game to maintain its original "medieval france" canonicity and keep all the weird but interesting scenarios as spin offs but the genuineness was lost forever the very moment they added a ringmaster in a top hat performing a number with a domesticated seal. Since the expansion next to that was, again, something not linked to the original theme, I'm afraid they are not interested anymore to keep the in-game place & time consistent.

start tile plus 13 turns per player [...] two Hills
Two hills would require two other tiles to be placed underneath them so it wouldn't be 13 turns per player anymore  ;)  :D

I don’t think there have been active volcanos in Languedoc for quite a while, either…

Good Catch!  3 Hills!  And a 4th set of meeples, too!  >:D
