Post Speed Tree for UE4

This is interesting. If someone were good at creating trees I think they could get a subscription for a month, make a bunch of trees and then cancel the subscription. From my understanding you get to keep the trees you have already made and do not need to pay royalties. You lose the ability to make new trees without subscription though.

Aside from this there are individual premade trees at their site you can buy for $50 but that seems a bit pricey to me. I haven't had the best luck finding trees on 3d modeling sites because they are usually ugly or don't really fit with the game type. I'm not a fan of super realistic trees that have tiny branches and a ton of leaves. I think the larger branches and more stylized trees work much better in this type of game.

I was going to post some screenshots of scenes I did where I added grass to show how much of a big difference it makes. I'll try to do that when I get home.

Something to look into for sure. $50 per tree is quite pricey, so subscribing probably would be the way to go about it. Food for thought as the project progresses.
