This mod adds The Shady Tree Left to the Cities Skylines.
Authors description: The Shady Tree Left by MrMaison
Update 1/30/2016: I fixed the title issue so the tree should show up in all existing assets in older cities.
Since After Dark, this tree was rendered to look very different from it’s original state. The lighting and shadows of the foliage changed to a lower quality look. It is now updated to look as intended close to the original by tweaking vertex normals.
Also now you can enjoy in game icons with this…finally!
1024 texture for clarity.
I strongly suggest getting Boformer’s Random Tree Rotation mod. With this now you only need one of these trees unless you want to purposely put the trees facing opposite. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=556784825&searchtext=
Also BloodyPenguin’s No Radioactive Mod http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=666425898
And Prop and Tree Anarchy http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=593588108
Sharp Textures mod really makes a difference in how the foliage looks in game http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=793176674
Special thanks to Shroomblaze who not only brougt this technique to my attention, but also helped with fixing the mesh.
This is a tree that will provide your city with more shade in the neighborhoods. This tree is part of a 2 piece set. One for the left and one for the right side of any subject (it’s basically the same tree rotated to mirror itself). I did it this way because we cannot rotate trees in game….at least that’s what I read. If this changes we would only need one such tree to get the mirrored coverage. Feel free to use any one alone for what ever. Great for small roads and walkways and I imagine even parks.
This version is for the left side.
TIP: East/West directional placement will give the most extreme coverage when trying to fully cover a subject in game. So if you especially place them on a road going north/south (or in that general orientation), the branches that cover the street the most would point either west or east.
