Shecky took over as lead developer right about the time that 1.6 was about to be released and he wanted to get familiar with our code first before tackling v4. So the ExtrabiomesXL team decided that we would do a small content update for v3 first, so that Shecky could get into our code and at the same time give our fans a few new things to play around with while waiting for v4.
Below are some screen shots of the new leaves, logs, slabs, planks, stairs, saplings and flowers. The new trees are the bald cypress tree, rainbow eucalyptus tree, Japanese maple shrub and Japanese maple tree. We have also redone the textures for the autumn forest, acacia, red wood and fir trees. Thanks to Zenth for the awesome new textures.
|Left - Yellow, Red, Orange and Brown Autumn Leaves|
Center (Top - Down) - Cypress, Acacia, Red Wood and Fir Leaves
Right (Top Down) - Rainbow Eucalyptus, Japanese Maple Shrub, Japanese Maple and Bald Cypress Leaves.
|These are the logs that go with the leaves in the image above.|
The 2 blocks in the front will be "roots" for the Rainbow Eucalyptus and the Bald Cypress.
|These are the slabs, planks and stairs to go with the new wood.|
|These are the saplings and flowers to go with the new and re-vamped trees.|
Another exciting new thing that we have added is the ability for tree saplings to self plant. This, of course, will be something that you can turn off in the config if you don't want this option. The chance for a sapling to self plant will be small percent, depending on if it doesn't land on something else and that it lands on the appropriate block for it to grow.
We hope to have the update out by Friday, if everything goes as planned.
Note that not all textures have been redrawn, and some of them may still be edited before the next release (especially leaves and saplings).ReplyDelete
I'm also aware that rainbow eucalyptus trees are beige on the inside, like most other real trees... but I SO wanted to have blue planks. :/
