The artist could make them look a lot better if they had the performance budget. I.e. higher plane to leaf ratio

The developers totally could but your game would run at 5fps or everything else would have to look insanely simple to keep a stable playable frame rate.

Leaves will eventually be moved to procedurally generated shader effects.

Looks like a lighting demo, not a leave demo.


Leaf is singular, leaves are plural.

What have I done.


Why don't you make like a tree and get out!

The trouble in simulating trees is with getting the movement of the leaves to look realistic. Nature is very chaotic.

By the time leaves look good in games, they'll be obsolete anyways.

No one cares.
Who ever stops in a game to stare at a tree and go "wow look at those leaves"
No one does.
If you wanted to do that, go outside and look at a tree.

It's hot outside. I would rather have realistic trees in games.
