Olive (turns out that Nicko2u made one years ago, but well now you have another one )
The plants were made with SpeedTree just like the original trees and plants from the game, which means they have the same advantages and disadvantages. They don't have huge impact on performance, but they can look quite ugly when you zoom out or play in low settings.
Except the vines and olive trees, all of them are planes instead of single modeled plants, I made it this way because it reduces the impact in performance by reducing the triangle count, and reduces the amount of instances for each tree, which is more important. They don't look as nice as a 3d modeled plant would, but they wont make the game lag like hell.
The game has a limit for the number of trees that can be rendered at once, it means if you plop a lot of them next to each other and zoom out, the game will not render the plants in all of them until you zoom in or move around, reducing the amount of trees in sight. It's not a bug, it's just how the game works.
If you play with in low settings or very low settings, they will look pretty ugly. They do look good when you take megascreenshots, so at least you can take nice farm screenshots even if you play in low settings.
Thanks to everyone who tested the beta, and thanks for your feedback. If you downloaded the beta, please delete the beta patch file before installing this one.
