    Mass Tree Placement works like the "Mass Place Trees" button on the built in "Terrain" component in Unity. But unlike the button it doesn't limit you to just specifying the number of trees you want placed, you can also specify a height range, a slope range, a width scale range and a height scale range. In other words YOU are in control.

    Simply add the "Mass Place Trees" component to your terrain(s), configure the properties and click "Place".

    Features
    • Documented C# source code
    • Free
    • Easy to use
    • Works with Unity 4.6 Free and Pro
    • Example scene included
    • Code classes are placed inside a namespace

    Hello, can you tell me if this package can be run deterministically at runtime? Or does it only work in the editor?

    Thanks!

    Diccon - its only at runtime. It works awesome with unity 5x still. If you can find a procedural runtime tree manager that WORKS and has low overhead for free, let me know.

    @diccon, sorry I missed your question. The algorithm is not deterministic so I advice not to be using it during game play. With a bit of C# effort you should able to modify the code to use a random seed or even perlin noise to make it deterministic but I don't think you would get around some flickering when you're updating the trees.
