The tree are horrible

I was camp "not cartoony" but the more I look at the trees, the more I'm setting up my own camp and inviting the "cartoony" campers over to hear their thoughts.

The trees suck. I cannot seriously call it a "style" when the trees are literally intersecting 2 dimensional objects in an otherwise 3D world. I know that video games and other art often rely on the abiltiy to suggest detail were it doesn't actually exist, but those trees suck. They are almost textureless. I hate them.

I really hope that the art team are happy people and that they are just trying to get everything done on a reasonable work schedule. But I also hope that the trees are not finished.

    I sense the next great debacle forming.

    Could someone add some screenshots, I'm too lazy to search through the video to find what the OP is on about.

    If it's a trade off for better performance and optimization then I'll gladly take it.

    The trees do look a little...'world of warcrafty', but I also think the whole situation is being blown out of proportion.

    In motion camera screenshots from a compressed video on a pre release build are hardly worth screaming 😱 about how the sky is falling.

    Similar doom and gloom was screeched about the Game 2 flyover, which wound up being fine in practice.

    It's not my ideal tree aesthetic but I'm also not majorly concerned.

    Trees are just one part of the issue. The map overall appears more stylized and simplistic. Just look at the bridges.

    Hopefully modders will fix the trees. I already run a mod that makes forests look nicer.

    I'm not going to say this is unimportant since it matters to someone. But this is the very last change that should be made before the game goes into maintenance mode 6 years from now. It affects absolutely nothing about gameplay, so while its fine to be fixed, its gotta go the farthest end of the list possible.
