For whatever reason I'm having the opposite problem, at least with the newest version of DFU and DREAM installed - trees of daggerfall makes my game lag extensively and go under 15 frames when I enter areas where the mod runs. Anyone have advice? I don't think it's a specs problem, I've got a good PC and trees of daggerfall was running fine before the newest updates.

Hey WMBlast,

I was trying to make a mod that groups plants and trees together to create the look of forests and grasslands instead of randomly and equally distributing them.
How did you manage to replace the billboard plants with actual 3D models? I have trouble replacing the TerrainHelper.LayoutNatureBillboards() with my own function for accessing the placement of those billboard trees. Did you find a way to work with these classes from within your mod?

Enabling modded nature layouts is still on my todo list, but you're the first person who's wanted to do this. For now you could develop by changing the DFU code and then once able to you can move it into a mod.

Replacing the billboards with 3d models is done using the mesh replacement mod features developed by TheLacus. I added some code that only uses 3d models for the map pixels nearest (terrain dist = 1) and billboards are still used beyond that for performance

Hey mate,

You might find my mod interesting in conjunction with yours. I was wondering if you would be in the boat for making this work and improve the world of Tamriel once more.

Yup, all good :)
Only problem I still have is the tile texture limit due them being handled as Byte from the Core but this can later on still be expanded on.
For now I will try to finish all other climate zones (prototyping with temperate climate is pretty much finished now) and publish it to gather first feedback.

Another issue is that the use of Interesting Terrain will be highly recommended, as it is nearly impossible to adjust all algorithms for all the different height mods, so I had to settle for the (in my opinion) most realistic looking one, which is Interesting Terrain, despite it not being supported anymore.
