Alasdair is just showing off the details of our new tree models made by ztree. I told him I thought this was too vague, but he is one stubborn bastard!


Anyway, let's all bow to ztree for his amazing work!

Looks like a proper willow to me. So perhaps this is a shot from the banks of the withywindle? Ofcourse I don't expect you guys are working on that, but if those are not willow leaves, I am a hobbit (and I'm about 6.3 feet tall, so that's not the case I guess :) )

Willows also grow in Rohan, along the Snowbourn in Harrowdale and around Edoras ;)

Eye candy stuff... I'm still in awe of LoZ: Ocarina of time graphics... and here we are, Merp is banging out stuff as realistic as it can possible get.

Wow, I've never seen that type of DoF before. The image size is 3240x1920, so I'm guessing this was taken in a triple monitor setup with all three monitors flipped portrait? Must have a nice rig for that.

I guess when this mod releases we can all easily play Skyrim on maxed settings with just about 50% system capacity. Hopefully the Merp team considers increase in performance over the years. :D

We do, but we also want it to be mostly playable today, even if it can't be super smooth sailing for a large number.

Alisdair, can you now tell the recommended system requirements?...

Wondering if my processor is good enough, have an i3 530 2,93 GHz and 1 MSI 560ti twin frozr II... Is that good enough for this modded mod? xD

Yes, it will be good enough. And if our HD trees turn out to kill performance, we'll give optional low res ones as well.

What is this ztree you're talking about? Made a search but couldn't find anything relevant. Is it a Zbrush feature?
