A plea for the Biodiversity

Recommended Posts

No, I will not tell you about global warming!!

But the possibility of increasing the variety of plants in the game to give a more realistic

This is especially the doodad brush that is the subject of my remarks

Those offered by the game do not please me because they are indefinable.

The undergrowth but also the Norman fields and even the gardens (especially mine) are overgrown with nettle, ferns and brambles

I modified the original of the game but the modification can not relate to only 2 type of bmp

Unlike helmets for example it is not enough to add a number to the bmp to obtain a wider variety

This possibility with the random will offer an improvement of the aspect of the game

nettles and ferns

So you are saying there was more variety of plants available in 1944? Do you mean warmer weather has killed them off since? The color and plant health was probably more vibrant as well.

I've always wanted stinging nettles in the game. 

"Uncle Arthur, I can't go in there it's full of nettles."

"What did he say, Wilson?"

"Mavis, I mean Mrs Pike, won't let Frank go anywhere near stinging nettles, they bring him out in a rather nasty rash you see."

"Stupid boy".

They will simply replace the existing "brush" files, so you can definitely use them with existing maps. 

But as you get the most dense occurance of nettles and ferns in the "heavy forest" ground tiles, a designer might want to change some of the ground tiles to take full advantage of these new possibilites. For instance, in the picture above I had to replace the the original "weed" ground tile to a "heavy forest" tile in order to get enough nettles and ferms in the farmyard.

thanks, umlaut.  i've downloaded and unzipped it, but when i opened up the  'drive on the drei jensweg' ( i didn't even try to spell that, but you know what i mean...) and dont see any change.  what am i missing?  does that map just not have any brush tiles?  please be patient with  a poor noob with his questions, etc.  i love seeing stuff like this that helps the game look its best.

 

cheers,

rob

lol :D Although that stuff is not the worst when I move into local woods with my metal detector. I like the idea though. For some my mission I made a high grass substitute looking like fern and placed in certain woods looks fairly convincing. My vote in any case for more biodiversity. B)

it would probably be simpler to ask if anyone knows of maps with a lot of 'brush'  to try this with- huh?  lol.

Yes, I can be a bit hard to find.

But first make sure that no other mods are overriding these doodads. When I tried them at first yesterday, they didnt show until I had moved Aris’ terrain mods to my z folder and placed these doodads in my zzz folder (It seems that the more z’s in the folder name, the higher priority).

I suggest you go to the editor and make a tiny map with lots of heavy forest ground tiles. Then it should be quite easy to tell if the mod is installed correctly.

cheers
