Tree color and leaf coverage vary to show season – snow accumulates, too!

3D Forests and Vegetation

Large variety of 3D trees with variation of species, size, and seasonal effects. They even sway in the wind.

The entire world now comes to life with FMOD sound – birds in the forest, cars in the cities and of course, ground service vehicles.
