Random Tree Rotation

Description
Tested to be working with Industries.

All instances of a tree in Cities: Skyline are rotated in the same way, which looks very unnatural. That is a technical limitation[community.simtropolis.com] 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!

@TheOneRiley: That's because Unlimited Trees and Tree Snapping are incompatible, as is stated in the description of Tree Snapping. ;)

all of what? the trees?

This mod does not modify tree positions, it's only a visual mod that can be disabled at any time.

Agreed! Every time I play a bit without mods I realise how much of a difference this mod makes. It really makes parks or forests feel more real when all the trees don't look the same, simply because they're rotated. So happy you came up with this :D

Glad that you like it. It's also one of my favorites of the mods I made. So simple, yet such an improvement
