This isnít really a request but more of a suggestion. There have been many great things created by custom scenery authors (all of which I love :heart: ) but the one thing Iíve never seen created that I think is something everyone loves and would like more of. TREES! :D I always see posts that ask for more trees in the next expansion or to get wild because it has lots of new trees etc. but I havenít seen any created by custom scenery authors. I know someone made a ďspookyĒ tree in one of there dark ride sets but thatís it. I think one thing that might be hard is all the leaves but even then just dead trees (with no leaves) would be cool. I think itís something the community would love just as much as pumperís (great) supports. I do have a few requests of different trees but the rest you could design, or even ignore my ideas. anywayÖ

1. A super tall tree like the red oaks in California. You could make a cool park with those and make some parks a bit more realistic. Something thatís at least twice as tall as the sugar pine.

2. A massive tree like the tree of life at animal kingdom (okay, maybe a little smaller), that could be used as the centerpiece of the park.

3. One that braches way out like the banyan tree except bigger and farther (branches)

Maybe a few bushes too. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone was willing to do this and would support you all the way :) . If you are up to it pm me if you have any ideas or want someone to help with designing or something like that and make sure to provide a link to the thread! (though Iíll be checking this forum regularly). Thanks =)

I have some new trees in the works for the game, but currently using the transparent textures has been hit & miss for me so far. Hopefully I can get them figured out to work every time & then there'll be a bunch of new trees for the game.

That's great news marnetmar! I totally agree with tmb11 on the need for some new ones...especially some that will overhang the paths like the new Wild! ones, and maybe different 1/4 tile ones.

Glad to hear it, I hope you figure it out. Please provide a link if you start a thread about them.

i tried to make forests a few months ago, but gave up becasue it didn't look right. Thought over time i might think of a better way to make them.

The idea was to make covnicing forest blocks, without the game having to render every single tree - so huge forests could be created with little slow down in fps. Problem is, it looks odd becasue the camera can be moved in any direction - textures only look good from one angle.
