No, they are not 3D. These screens are actually from academic project that's going to show and compare the current and predicted future forest coverage and distribution of tree species in north-western USA. Right now it's using large species maps to compute what trees grow where, but we aim to generate the coverage procedurally using rules for individual species, based on temperature and precipitation ranges. Once that's done, it will be used in OT to get variety in vegetation that also conforms to bioclimatic rules.

I guess some simpler basic rules will be used initially to bring variety into the public version soon.

Amazing,I can't wait to see everything progress!
