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.


Then go outside naked so you stay cool.

When are you going to look more realistic and not just a giant blob with a human texture on it?

Looks like a lighting demo, not a leave demo.


Leaf is singular, leaves are plural.

What have I done.


You'll never live this down. Now make like a tree, and go.

No one does.

I remember playing modded Skyrim, having multiple texture packs installed and such. 120 hours later well after I've forgotten about all the mods I had installed I suddenly stopped in a snowy field and looked at the ground because I dropped some items to lower my weight for a bit before going into a dungeon.

I noticed the 4K snow texture which I'd forgotten I'd installed and I had to get real close down to and just enjoy looking at it with the windy backdrop and light music playing in the background.

I stopped to stare at the ground and I said "Wow, look at that snow."

Snow is more impressive than leaves. I've done that too. I always think "this would be a great place to snowmobile"

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.


For proper leaf physics and better leaf models....Make it happen devs.

Getting tired of AAA games where they look amazing, but the entire game is just one long corridor. I want a game where it looks insane, but you can't even move.
... even on Earth Mode.

Nope, never, just like we won't ever get good looking hair,

PS: I am being sarcastic.


But seriously, why do so many games like Kingdoms of Amalur and Divinity have hair that just looks like colored blobs?
