Default If we could only have new trees....

Playing this great sim for 420 hours now and many more are to come.......
but one kept annoying me all the time during these 420 hours....the trees.

Form above 1 km they look fine with different set of colours.
But from close the trees look ugly, the trees are glittering and the shadow of the trees are glittering too. There are also 2d images added amongs the trees to make it look like a forest. And if this is not enough you can fly through them.

New better trees would make this game look so much better!
This is an example from Rise of Flight, if we could have these!

I also like how ROF colors forests from high up, they look great and much more realistic.

Also the trees in ROF make a thrashing sound against your plane when you hit the tops of them. Very cool!

Agreed. The trees we have no are ugly and don't have damage model. Worst case really.

I don't have them on. I never really understood the idea of having the quantity of trees on a landscape as user selectable and having no collision detection. Seems as though the new GFX engine is sticking with what we have.

The console version BOP (and its cousin WOP for the PC) had trees as a fixed part of the landscape. If you flew close to them you could hear the rustle of the leaves - but hit a branch and your wing got ripped off. I expected to see something similar with ClOD - there must have been a reason for MG to have opted for what we have though I don't know what it is or why.

Is this for real?

There are problems 20 times the magnitude that need addressing with the flight models, damage models and AI before we can start to kick back and yarn about trees!!
