- 11 different Vegetation Planters with a total of 139 foliage assets to place.
Including Trees, rocks, plants, crystals and so on.


I recommend to watch the overview videos linked above (Thanks to Harv's Corner), but in short.
- Place down a VegetationPlanter and connect with the PlantTool.
- Change the tools mode to "Add vegetation" with RMB and place Vegetation Instances in a set radius around the planter.
- You can see all PlantTool shortcuts on the bottom left corner of the screen.

What's special about Vegetation Planters?
- Every time you place foliage with the PlantTool, it gets added as InstancedMesh to the planter and not as a separate structure.
InstancedMeshes are also used for the default foliage on the map and are designed to be placed hundreds, if not thousands of times.
- The foliage fades away based on the players view distance setting.
If you play on a toaster and have the render distance set to low, they will fade away really early.
- Vegetation Planter foliage can't be harvested.

I'm attempting to use the mod in single player, but when I go to build one of the plant pots, it says "base seeds: 0/10" how do I fix this?

Can I get .ini to allow building on a platform/saddle?

I feel kinda dumb for asking this
How exactly do i choose a different tree from a single planter?
Scroll wheel rotates, r click switches mode, l click places, x toggles view
But its my understanding each planter has several trees within it, i can only access the first (default) tree
Ive tried all my various keyboard buttons - and pulled my pets all over the place by accidentally whistling them - but i cant figure out how to see the other trees

Best of the best plant mod from workshop!

Small request : add aberration :-)

Thanks for your work!

Wonderful mod, but I'm pretty heartbroken to have just accidentally removed HOURS of work, I'm using the Building Helmet mod by Grebog, and picking up one object by accident means picking up every item tied to the same planter. Same goes for the demo gun added by Super Structures or S+. Please add something to prevent this from happening again. Maybe a warning message before pickup? Maybe make them immune to those pickup methods? Otherwise this is easily the best landscaping mod out there.

@reinerSCT sehr tolle Mod, ein wenig mehr Auswahl und vor allem mehr Blümchen wären super. Ein paar Steine,Pflanzen, Blümchen wie in der Eco Garden und Eco Trees Mod wären auch toll. Bessere Gestaltung von Gärten, Altären, Ruinen etc. und nicht nur die wilde Umgebung

Ob das jetzt an SS, oder sonnst einem Mod hängt ist ja schon ein Problem zwischen den Mod Kreatoren. Ich fogende es aber Toll, dass du eventuel etwas daran ändern kannst, damit es Funktioniert, wie Gesagt, denke ich mir, dass es am besten mit einer Einstellmöglichkeit im gus.ini wäre. Aber ansonnsten finde ich es schon Traurig, dass die Modder nicht mehr unter sich Ausmachen, was, wie, wo Einzustellen, dass solche Querschläger möglichst nicht passieren. Ihr habt ja auch einen Modder Discord um solche Probleme Behandeln zu können.

Ok, schaue mir das mal an mit der hotkey änderung.
Das problem ist, dass SS einfach global die taste für sich beansprucht. Das gibt halt probleme mit allen waffen die attachments haben.
Es wäre mmn viel sinnvoller wenn der author eine waffe benutzt wo man dann mit "N" den waffentyp ändern kann. Und schon wären alle probleme gelöst.

Hallo, danke für den hinweis, nur das Klappt nicht, denn, auch wenn ich diese Einstellung in Ark ändere, bleibt für beide Mods die Taste N, also klappt so gar nichts, sorry
