    Roger that. Something learned today by me. Funny thing is, the trees I place are hybrid. They flower for spring, full canopy for summer, color up for autumn, and strip bare for winter with no snow/ice. Drop the snowline and every tree above goes bare and white. Best of both worlds IMO.

    Exactly. That’s the standard “seasons + snow” system that N3V want creators to adopt for trees that can exhibit all those changes.

    I noticed that one of the examples in the Wiki even allowed for different snowlines at different times of year (if I read it correctly) which is an even more complex configuration. At the other extreme, you can do buildings and vehicles that only need one regular skin and one snowy alternative, no seasons.

    So it’s a very flexible system, but one that can sometimes be misunderstood.

    These do exist too a small degree. Had static trucks that wintered over above the snow line. Can't remember if they changed with the months tough. Tripped over them while trying a winter wonderland route creation once in TANE.

    Default TB trees and missing items...

    I've been playing around with changing the background trees (and there are tons of them) on the BC&SJ route from st_rmm trees to billboard trees for performance reasons.

    In the process I've run into the OP's problem in spades.

    Is there another family of high-performance trees that does come with the library version issues baggage of the tb forest series of trees?

    I'd expect that future sharing of the BC&SJ route would be much smoother if the installee didn't have to mess with tb forest library versions!

    Clam1952 (Malc) made some billboard trees that work well without these issues. They are generically named like Tree53a, etc. but you'll get used to which ones you want and don't want to use. If you are interested, also look at his bushes CL Bush xx, etc.,
