    Wonderful environment !!

    Very inspiring work!!

    The terrain is a landscape, static meshes or both?

    Sketchup. It has (at least when I did that a year ago) a feature to capture images and topography from google earth.

    The foliage is dynamic, other stuff baked. Impossible to bake all that foliage with 16gb of RAM only ...

    I mean, it IS a backplate right?
    Thanks!

    There is no backplate there, it's all 3D scenario. 5 square kilometers of landscape with satellite textures and real topography. The details are concentrated on the neighborhood of the houses. You can see the place where those pictures were taken marked in red:

    It's geometry, scattered over the surface with foliage tool.

    updating...

    Now there is 4 leaf variations and a version with flowers. I've also tweaked the tree parameters to improve its structure compared with the real one.

    Yet to do:
    I'm still not happy with the fruit and flowers distribution, the must be organized in clusters and it's not looking like that for now.
    The fruits are too spherical and uniform (looks like mini Christmas balls ) I'm also working on that.
    I'll improve the normal maps to give leaves a "thicker" visual.

    Yeah Speedtree (the build in texture tools) can't do that. It can do puffiness but not thickness. You just need a simple alpha of the leave and make a normalmap out of that so it gives you a nice fat border. Bit off falloff on your white before you make a normalmap and you should be good to go

    Did you use speedtree for this?
    Thanks, man. Yes, it's SpeedTree.

Seems the original is one of those type that has these relatively thick leaves, so typical for a lot of vegetation in more tropical climates. Perhaps a more pronounced normalmap can help here. The fruits could perhaps be a little bigger too but that quickly changes the whole look of such a tree. This is very neutral and I like it.
    Thanks! Yes, that tree has thick leaves indeed. I'm still thinking on how I could achieve that "thick border" effect on closeups. The ordinary normal map just give some imperfections to the surface. I'll probably try a custom paint normal map with extra work on the borders...

    Hey @rabellogp, can you share any of your test work(exteriors) with community so that we can study them
    Thanks, man.
    My studies are always paid works that I sell to someone. So I couldn't just share it for free... Same with the assets, I'm always working on something that I'll probably drop on the marketplace. I'm thinking about a tutorial, but it's very time consuming and I don't know when I'll be able to dedicate some time to this... Meanwhile, you can always ask me about specific stuff or techniques in my topics or via PM and I'll be glad to help if I can
