Ah yes, soon! I keep obsessing about the acacia, lol... Modeling trees is hard... I'll be sending more huts and stuff very soon!

At least I just finished the first new Acacia variant, I think... I read something about keeping it under 800 tris, so I kept it at 784 :P ... The other variants will be simpler/smaller and have less tris. This is just the mother acacia.

Let's pretend we're coming out of the rainy season :) (the grasses have already dried up, but there's still enough water deep in the ground to keep the trees green)

But yeah, I could still play around with colors and brightness a bit..

I was actually thinking of making dry season variants, with fewer leaves and a more brownish color.

Might want to add some variation to the color still, cause it's looking a bit uniform right now but keep it up :)

yo @Sundiata we need low thorny acacia bushes from the looks of things, u game?

Absolutely! If you're patient enough with me, I'll get all the acacia stuff (and hopefully other things as well) ready before the next alpha... 

The Baobabs and papyrus look marvelous, by the way!

Wow :o Really nice bamboo (y) 

Makes me wish we had a "wow" reaction rather than "just" a like or thanks :) (It's possible to add new reactions, but you need to have a fitting image, and finding one that fits the current ones and is legal to use is probably more work than it would be worth as the current ones are useful enough.)

I've always wanted a heart shaped red "love" button, and a blue thumbs up "like" button, to add some necessary nuance (being able to properly react to LordGood's posts)

Something like this? The smallest acacia variant, 36 tris:

 Small Acacia bush.dae

I tried adding some thorns with mixed results:

ay that can work for the smallest ones. It'd be good to have a few sprawling ones too so we can get a full range of flora

here's to get a bit of perspective on how textures behave in the engine, and what normal edit does to bushes lol

Looking great, my dude.

I think the game needs a few more species of palm trees too. The cretans look awesome, but the date palms are dated. Would be nice to have some more variation for palm trees. Some tropical and desert varieties.

well gee i sure don't we have 6 already. 3 of those are date palms.

but I do find the prospect of making more palm trees appealing

My list?

Spoiler

Wild Date

Betel

Doum

Palmyra

Coconut

Buri

and the one i like the prospect of the best, Nipa palms. mangrove palms
