Hah, good luck getting actual cattle herds into the game... :(
Hey now, Sega Rally managed animated elephants and zebras 20 years ago. ;)

I'd still put my vote in for Malaysia over Kenya. Love the idea of the Safari Rally, but Malaysia is visually completely unlike anything at all in the game right now.

Kenya/Safari with 7-8 minute stages just doesn't do it for me. It's all about endurance imo.
Depending on the stage, I guess it could be possible to actually make something along the lines of the length of the Finnish stages. I'd think making a Kenyan stage would take less resources engine wise than something like Finland, given the sparse nature of the landscape. Certainly plenty of obstacles in this 10 minutes of onboard! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pinoWOCIwFQ

This looks like it could be fun, and completely different when wet and muddy.  

The more I think about it, it seems this may be one to shelf till the next title.  It would really shine if they implement a mild terrain deformation (not spintires pudding deformation), and maybe a revamped particle system for HUGE dust clouds, etc.  Dust would probably effect the visibility if you are second or third back.  So there are pluses and minuses.  

China was fun in DiRT2, I actually enjoyed most of the rally events in D2, but I could go on and on about the little things that I would like to see in the future, so I will stop here.

Instead of Safari rally I would rather see WRC Rally:

- RallyRACC Catalunya-Costa Daurada ( WIth Gravel and tarmac)
- LOTOS 73rd Rally Poland
- Vodafone Rally de Portugal
- Rally Italia Sardegna

Or

- Brother Rally New Zealand.

Safari rally would only intresting if you got stages from 30min +
But so on, then in that case Dakar rally would be intresting too....

Better focus on the beautiful WRC rallies, but thats my opinion.

The whole stage is awesome, in my opinion, of course. I don't mind if they only do Fafe (full stage), but if they do, I would buy it with my eyes closed (not really - but I trust the DiRT team to make it like it is in real world). :smiley:

Not a fan of too many rough gravel rallies. Poland would be cool though. A bit like Finland, nice gravel stages but much narrower. Reminds of the summer rally roads here in Sweden.

Actually, those roads in Poland are not really fully gravel. That's the state of tarmac that the B roads in Poland respresent. It should be tarmac, but instead half of the road is gravel because... no one could be bothered to fix it properly so the holes got filled with gravel over time. Yeah, I know. We have many jokes about the state of roads in Poland, most common one is if you want to find caves in Poland, you just need to drive on our roads xD

Sure. Have fun.

PS. Can't seem to find the image where a fireman was going down a ladder to a hole in a road. Not joking.

Main roads are nowadays good. But the backroads... well, complete and utter crap. The roads you have in the Rally Poland seem to you guys like gravel, while they are actually tarmac roads. That's how bad they are.

Just pointing it out, so that everyone realise that Rally Poland is not just gravel or just tarmac. It's mixed rally, but in a very mixed way. You're driving on tarmac and gravel at the same time basically, most of the time. Naturally there are full gravel sections and full tarmac sections here and there, but most of the time it's crappy tarmac that has its holes filled with gravel that accumulated over time.

Polish roads sound a bit like my city's roads. Instead of fixing it the right way, they do 1/8 inch patches over the entire road surface that just erode away in 3 weeks. Funny thing is all the surrounding cities around mine have perfect roads. But that goes into politics I won't bring up.

That's not exactly accurate but you have a point.
Rally Poland's based in Mazury region which's very farm-based. The soil is very sandy there which's quite good for any agriculture. The roads between small villages are totally un-asphalted, because it has no sense - there're only residents, tractors and tourists travelling there.

It is true that it's not really full gravel - it's more of a sand but with little bigger pebbles.

The totally destroyed asphalt sections covered with the sandy gravel are based on abandoned agricultural complexes after PGR - as far as I know.  So they're there but it's not most of the surface in the whole rally.

It's only few km's of normal tarmac (which's quite destroyed - thats normal), and few meters of concrete blocks.

The rest is the yellow-sandy-gravel which's most of the surface through the whole rally.
