The Forest for the Trees
This last week I spent a few days reverse engineering some stylized trees and making my own with some of the techniques I learned. At first I thought the leaves were going to look really out of place in the world, but after I finished I fell in love with the way they turned out. I’m excited to have added not only new leafy trees, but bushes, and even some vine-like foliage to the world. And it’s really looking alive now.
Here are some of the original trees:
And here are a ton of shots of the new world with the new foliage:
And then later in the week I decided to update the harvesting mechanic and add some polish. Now the trees actually fall over when chopped and leave stumps behind. They will eventually regrow, but currently they only respawn upon restarting the game.
