BYR Tree Generator
When I was working on my other project (this one), I had problem with finding good trees, so I decide to make my own Tree Generator. I hope to create good and powerful tool in the future for creating trees and other plants.

This is early alpha footage:

RE: BYR Tree Generator
Great work. thats true, finding good trees is really a difficult task, I had thoughts to write similar tool.
This is a sure purchase for me if you are planning to release it for sale.

Yes, when I will be satisfied with the quality, I will release it in Esenthel Store. In nearby future I'll post free DEMO version so everyone could check it.

That's fantastic! I've also been searching for good tree generation software for ages. Having it straight into the Esenthel Engine is just the best thing imaginable. smile

I'll support this project.

What do you have in mind for customizing the color / texture (realistic vs stylized) and high vs low poly?

I see in the video you have deciduous trees, will you also have coniferous type trees as well?

I'm not sure exactly what you mean with "customizing the color/texture". Program use Esenthels Materials/Textures so you can just customize texture with Esenthel Editor and import it to this tool.

About high and poly, there is a lot of options that allow you to control the quality of tree. I also plan to add automatic lod generator for generated tree.

And yes, you can make a lot of different type of trees - coniferous, palms and deciduous with different type of shape: Round, Irregular, Weeping, Pyramidal and others.

RE: BYR Tree Generator
Thanks Pherael, I'd definitely would need to see it in action so I understand better. Another thing that has come up with tree gen tools is that the trees are not "random-placement" friendly. Basically, the base of the trunk relies on being placed on a fairly flat terrain, and when the tree is placed on a slope, part of the base of the trunk is above terrain, especially trees with wide bases. When a placement tool is used to place trees over a varied terrain, if this isn't put into consideration, the designer often have to go back and inspect trees looking for ones that have part of its base showing above terrain and manually adjust it below the terrain to make sure none of the trunk base/bottom is above terrain.
