Poor trees! They grow into such height - and people want nothing but chop them down :-)

The new trees are great. I like additions to the plantlife. And when the trees will eventually be grouped in forrests and do not appear everywhere, it ought to be possible to find large enough areas without huge trees for larger structures.
A list of my mods can be found here.

For some reason, when I first read your post, the images weren't coming through. But I did like the idea of custom tree generation being faster.

Now that I can see the images though, your trees are beautiful! They sort of remind me of trees from Terasology, although when I try t create a world in that game, it crashes, so I never got a good look at them.

The tree's code was converted from Terasology.

Yes, the idea and initial code comes from Terasology. Now it can get it back, i made lotsa improvements. Update to treegen coming tommorow/

You could add a rail gun like Terasology to basically blow the heck out of any giant trees that grow in unwanted locations.

That would be too good of a tool for vandals to use on people's houses.

Tried it out. Really like it BUT

- Can't change trunk thickness
- No control over the amount of fruit spawned in trees
- No control over the color of the leaves. (would be nice but not really important)

EDIT:
- I'm not sure but does the height vary. I don't think it does.
- The really big trees don't have connected branch but chunks of branch (Maybe because of the huge scale that it skips coordinates, the apple tree however doesn’t have this)

Image

I really want to implement this into the jungletree mod. This is gonna give more variety to the jungletrees.

for thick trunks use thick_trunks=true
chance of spawning fruit is 10-iterations (%)
you can define leaves by setting leaves=node_name
about height: in general more iterations tree will be bigger

Where would I be able to find these new builds? Sfan5 doesn't seem to work on any as of late.

I tried unpacking the .zip file for the latest build there, but I could not do so successfully. I used PeaZip to do so, which is a reliable program.

I wonder if more interesting cacti can be made with this tree generator?

How do you code trees, I only know basic LUA.
Any tips on blender, gimp, or codea?

of course, just use cacti for trunk, air for leaves

Bear in mind that you have get rid of every wood block to make all of the leaves fall, otherwise it laeves you with just a bunch of floating leaves, which is unpleasant. In addition, clearing out a forest is far less practical, taking minutes with even an axe for each tree, which impedes large building projects.
I made leaves climbable for me. It is very easy to cut down big trees this way and makes more fun. Forests you can burn down (this is fun too).

So there are two types of trunk. 1x1 and 3x3 with gaps in the corners. But i want 2x2 and 4x4.
Could it be possible to make thick_trunks an int where one can define the diameter?

with the new update thin_trunks=true/false will be replaced with trunks=single/double/crossed
which will be 1 node trunks, 2x2 node trunks, 3x3 in cross shape

Nice.

Of course, with a lack of a decent "lumber physics" (you know, drop the tree down a block in level when part of the trunk is removed), floating tree-islands will propogate. Still, nothing a good fire flaming arrow can't fix!

Can the runs on an existing tree trunk enlarge the tree, or it will look like a tree placed on a tree? I mean, can I make tree growing by running a treegen on an existing trees?

technically it could be possible, mechanics is here
but it would be too much time consuming.
Thats why i introduced random_level to generate trees on random growth stages

Nice feature! You're pretty good. Could it be possible add vines/ladders with the trees generation?

I want to implement tree growing with l-systems. But I can't generate a tree on a later grow stage cause existing tree is already there. Removing it and re-running treegen is a bit strange.

Those trees are very nice looking, RealBadAngel. I really do hope that they will appear in mapgen v7.
