    Hello everybody,

    I'm having an issue with my plobbable trees.
    They grow big and shrink everytime i look at some other angle and then back at the same trees.
    I think a mod i've downloaded causes this issue but i really dont know which one and above that i've probably used this mod at several places in my city, and so i cannot just delete it (i have to know for sure which one it is)

    Has anyone had this issue before , and maybe a hint?

    Gr PHPIET,,

    Any chance you can screenshot whats happening?
    I have not had trees shrink on me but do have shadow issues. I think that's due to the camera mod I use. Could be something similar causing your problem

    What he means is the same tree is changing size by itself when the camera is moved away.
    If it's only happening to a few trees I'm wondering if there is some class files with the same name. The game might be using both class files of a same name but different settings of tree size. I know it shouldn't be mine as I always rename my class files.
    Changing the settings in the global settings file regarding rendering might sort it out if there is no class file clash.

    Go to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Focus Home Interactive\Cities XL 2012\Data\Config
    Open GlobalSettings.cfg with a decent editor
    Search for <VisibilityEnabled>2</VisibilityEnabled> and change it to <VisibilityEnabled>0</VisibilityEnabled>

    (These changes will draw your objects once, so it doesn't re-render it every time you change zoom levels)

    Now change <ProcessEnabled>1</ProcessEnabled> to <ProcessEnabled>0</ProcessEnabled>

    (This pre-renders objects in the game, so no real time rendering)

    Glad the config changes worked but it could be like a band aid to cover the issue. Don't think a class file clash would be a game breaker, just a visual nuisance as you discovered.
    I double checked my tree mods and I had changed every class file name. I'm sure Drazic changed all his class file names as well.
    If I find anything I'll post back here.
