Hello everybody I wanted to get everyones opinions on which video game developers have made the best “virtual palm”, now there are variables such as art style, graphic engine, how old the game is etc that may determine why the palms may look one way or another, but with that being said let’s get started.
First off is a Washingtonia and a Phoniex from the game GTA5 from rockstar games, I quite like these as they look realistic for a game and are easy to identify.
Next from Red Dead Redemption 2 (Also from rockstar games) is Clearly Sabal Minor I think they did a fantastic job recreating it.
Also from Red dead appears to be Washingtonia again, but in my opinion they somehow look worse in this game then gta even though it’s a newer video game.
This is what I believe is supposed to be a sabal palmetto, I don’t think it’s costapalmate simply because that’s probably harder to implement
Next from the game the crew 2 appears to be date palms. Not a big fan because this part of the map is supposed to be in Miami and I feel like they could have added coconuts instead.
Next is from the game Hunt:showdown. Looks like Sabal Minor.
Need for speed. I think these are supposed to be washies but they almost look more like trachycarpus.
next are coconuts from the game Stranded deep, not a big fan of these ones to be honest.
Next is Coconuts from the game dead island. Although not entirely realistic, I quite like the design of them in this game.
Coconut from Battlefield V is not bad either.
I will add more as I screenshot them in games.
The place its kinda small maybe 1-1.5 meter, shady, and low light, the palm must have a small leaf or medium leaf and the mature height 2-3 meters
