    Treebuild
    Current status: WIP
    Leader: RubenPieterMark

    As you all know our favorite developer Eriol has added lovely medium and thin logs to our custom inventories. The current stencil list is still from before we had these, so I thought our stencil list could use an update. I have this huge book with a whole bunch of trees which I all plan to build, and about ten to thirty exemplars for each type. So we will probably end up with a thousand or so trees/bushes.

    I have already started with about 50 trees and another 50 shrubs/bushes, some of which still need to be copied over to the grid by a designer. My book starts with conifers, so that's what we'll build first.
    I will be online a lot for the next two weeks, then I should study for my test week. After that, when I have loads of free time, we can hopefully move on from the conifers to the deciduous trees.

    The grid is at /plot warp TreeBuild. Trees are a very tricky thing so I'm still not sure whether I should let anyone spam the plots with trees that might not be near standard, or that I should supervise it closely and only assign people to certain plots. I will mostly build most of the trees by myself, but of course all help is welcome from anyone, building trees is learnt quickly! The current types of trees we're building is junipers, yews and cypresses.

    Why do I write the Latin names under the English names? Names can be really confusing. I myself know the trees best by the Dutch names, and there is often even a difference between the American English and the British English names, for instance the name aspen is British English, but in America they often call it cottonwood tree and in Dutch it's either esp or ratelpopulier. Very confusing all

    So if anyone wants to build some trees just ask me when I'm online or pm me on disco.

    Progress update
    About a hundred trees and another hundred bushes have been been created since the project has started. Thanks to BWO Cre for copying the trees over (about 5 need to be copied still) and to Ryt, lol's, Darktemplier66 and others for building the trees.

    Not much progress this week because I had examsweek. Today and tomorrow @ryttyr and I will be doing an unofficial buildday. We hope to finish all junipers and yews.

    EDIT: We hope to finish most of the conifers. The progress rate is crazy. We've already done about 120 trees last one and a half hours.

    Lots of firs have been created the last weeks, and we revamped/added some junipers, yews and cypresses. Here's my favorite species so far: Abies nordmanniana, Nordmann or Caucasian fir. [​IMG]

    Awesome :D Are you in touch with the Designers of Belfalas and Andrast so that they are actually used?

    Those marked with Sauron's Eye are supposed to be used for Belfalas, like the one in the pic. ^
    For Andrast, I've only spoken @mattlego for a bit and I've got a list of trees that they will use, but they're mostly deciduous (willows, cork oaks etc). Those are quite far from my current focus (conifers), but I might do some of those after the Belfalas conifers. Haven't spoken @jacenpeter yet.
