I missed this one too. Very good work, lighting is excuisite. Are the large rocks on the edge of the land procedural or imported assets? I really like those, no matter what.
I do however think you need more than one (or two) versions of the trees you're using. If you look careful, you see there's much the same tree. And for a few dead trees, you could add another pop of the same, but set opacity of needles to zero/black. Too bad world opacity still doesn't work, so that would be the only way.

For me it looks perfect now :)

If you really want to add dead trees Ulcos way is the same way I always use: Identify the leaves shaders in the TG object, set the opacity to 0 (and I think you must delete any opacity image image if there is one)

Those are imported assets  :)

There are two different firs. I'll see what I can do and I'm also gonna try making those dead trees. Thanks  :)

Great changes! I really like the new composition, pretty much exactly how I had it in mind.
Some other great advice/suggestions too, very interested to see how far you will take it!

This is a tricky area when tree models are unique. Like wind-swept growth. It's a lot easier with more uniform "generic" trees.

Too much unique time spent on individual branches/etc will show throw and become focal points in populations as repetition. In fact Ulco was just having to work with this awhile back with his Black Forest pine scene, where lower snag branches with too much uniqueness were easily picked up again in the population.

This is a problem with grasses too and I end up using a lot straighter, or less-dense grasses as often people will put in swirls and such into their patches that will be a focal point in pops.

These sort of edits are good when you have 10+ models for a single population, but not when you have constraints to think about with large distances.

Thanks for all the feedback guys  :)

I've added some dead trees and also some more grass by the shoreline, the "Corndog grass" from the NWDA store by Walli
