Create Trees and Vegetation with the Tree Creator

In this short course we'll go over using the Unity Tree Creator to create a tree. The Tree Creator is a somewhat hidden feature of Unity that is quite useful for creating any type of game optimized vegetation. There are quite a few settings and this course is designed to break it down to understand all the sliders, curves and drop down menus. Things covered in this course include:

  • Creating branches and leaves
  • Utilizing curves to customize trees
  • Using wind zones and adjusting wind settings
  • Example of alternate vegetation that can be created

We'll end the course by providing an example prefab of a bamboo set to give you an idea of the different types of vegetation that can be created with the "tree creator".   This course contains textures from CGtextures.com
