A four season tree for the terrain tab:

Code: Select all

[
 {
  "id":"$tree.ab.unq.00",
  "type":"tree",
  "title":"trees for terrain",
  "text":"4",
  "author":"CommanderABab",
  "frames":[
     {"bmp":"4seasonoak.png","w":32,"count":4}
  ],
  "influence pollution":-1,
  "influence noise":-1,
  "influence nature":1,
  "frames per tree":4,
  "influence radioactive":-1
 }
]
"frames per tree" must equal "count" unless you want trees switching spots every month.


And this is 4seasonoak.png:

My seasons are reversed, but it still works ok.

Here is how an oak forest looks in game:

To make the four frame image, start with a 32wx32h image:
  • 1 Draw the trunk(s), branches, and shadows.

    2 When finished with that, save it.
    If you use Pixly, select and copy it also.
    3 Now make a mark on the left or right.
    4 Now resize the image to (w+32)x32h.
    5 Move the mark in the image to the edge.
    6 Erase the mark.
    7 Now paste (and move if necessary) the saved image into the blank spot.
    8 Repeat from 2 until the image is 128wx32h and you have 4 trunks.

    9 Draw the leaves and shadows in each section according to the season.
    10 Save and use it. :)
This is one tree.

Just a tree. You want to change the radioactive, draw your own. :)
