Random Tree Rotation

DESCRIPTION
All instances of a tree in Cities: Skyline are rotated in the same way, which looks very unnatural. That is a technical limitation [community.simtropolis.com] which is caused by the technology that is used the render distant trees (LODs).

But it is possible to rotate the detailed tree models which you will see when you zoom in: That’s what this mod does.

This mod applies a random rotation to all trees placed on a map. It applies the rotation just before the rendering, and can safely be enabled or disabled at any time. It also affects trees which were placed before the mod was installed. Your game saves are not touched.

You may notice the switch between the (unrotated) LOD models and the (rotated) detailed tree models. That’s one of the issues of this mod which can not be fixed. But it is still nice for close-up screenshots!
