About This File

Cities XL 2012 compatible

 

This mod contains 9 types of forests with three types of trees declined each of three different soils.

So these are plazas, you'll find them in Environment / Decorations.

 

These places have been configured to accept slopes of 60 °.

To be sure to keep the slopes, draw a route up the slope and a second lower and after, put your area of forest. The trees follow the slope and the ground will respect the roadside.

 

So there are three categories of trees according (approximately) the geographic areas:

- Deciduous trees in temperate regions

- Conifers for cooler regions

- Exotic varieties for the tropics

Low shrubs are planted to enhance the appearence of undergrowth.

Notice that the tree density is high enough to give precisely the impression of forest which is not the case with the textures of the game (or Malaya's).

 

Each category is broken down on three grounds:

- The texture of "waste" of brown color that looks like in this case a forest soil with fallen leaves

- The green grass texture of the Wooded Park Area of the game, allowing transition between textures

- And a splendid set of 3 textures designed expressly by Peluche, approaching more the rich colors of the undergrowth.

 

These plazas seem to be less memory-intensive than individual trees.

I have the same problem as TomBB, I only get the base texture, no trees appear. Am I missing a dependancy?

Ignore this comment, I had downloaded the other tree mods first. I guess they are dependancies?

The Forest plazas mod works well. But you do also need to download and install the single tree packs listed as links in the text above. I guess they are dependencies, needed to get this mod to work in Cities XL 2012.

I just tried it on a Steam installed version of Cities XL. I installed this Forest plaza mod by its own on Cities XL 2012 and you only get the ground floor texture. With the Exotic trees Mod, Deciduous trees Mod, Conifers Mod, Shrubs and bushes, and Spring trees Mod it works perfectly.
* The directory for the .packs files was on my machine D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\cities xl 2012\Paks
