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!


Note: I'm not taking donations, but others do ;)

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..

Is there an option to enable/disable in the mod options menu (while the city is loaded)?

Also use Dynamic Resolution. It makes a huge difference with tree LODs. I use it in all my latest screenshots.
