Random Tree Rotation

All instances of a tree in Cities: Skyline are rotated in the same way, which looks very unnatural. That is a technical limitation[] which is caused by the technology that is used the render distant trees (LODs).

But it is possible to rotate the detailed tree models which you will see when you zoom in: That's what this mod does.

This mod applies a random rotation to all trees placed on a map. It applies the rotation just before the rendering, and can safely be enabled or disabled at any time. It also affects trees which were placed before the mod was installed. Your game saves are not touched.

You may notice the switch between the (unrotated) LOD models and the (rotated) detailed tree models. That's one of the issues of this mod which can not be fixed. But it is still nice for close-up screenshots!

This is broken all of the trees dissappeared when I moved one. Might be an incompatability with Move It though.

I'm having a weird glitch where the mountrain grass trees have a broken looking LOD. Is there any way to disable them from being rotated with the mod?

This one apparently, as it works while the other one doesn't. I've tried both and had good results with this one.

BonBonB really did drive home that I should rate content creators in one of his videos. I have been too lazy for years but I'll do it now. Thank you for making my cities so much prettier!

Subscribing to this INSTEAD of the other "Random Tree Rotation for Natural Disasters by judazzz" actually fixed ALL my tree LOD flickering problems. Didnt disable any of the vanilla trees or anything, funny..
