Natural Vegetation DATABASE
« on: November 04, 2014, 01:32:05 pm »

Despite the Outerra biome colors & vegetation density, I don't see diversity of trees.


Searching and searching, found this database, really small, but good enough (IMHO)  to achieve the variety needed.

Here is the direct link for the .kml Google Earth file:

Hope it's useful.

Actually it's available in 500m resolution:



It hasn't yet been used to drive the vegetation generator, there were only some tests with smaller maps.
