Hi everyone, today is not the mod birthday or what but Cherry Forest is like 2 year old now and I've only realised it today... It's still a mod in development even if there's nothing new from a long time and I'll explain here why and... why I'm looking for help, especially.
The last major updates of Cherry Forest started with the Return of Them beta from June to August with nice additions every weeks such as the Hide & Cherries minigame and much more like the trees grow states and petals raining everywhere. At this point, the mod finally looked good to ClaireMya and I with its unique features to be something very enjoyable to play with that gives a second wind to the game exploration and new entertaining attributes to play longer without distracting you from what the original game have to offers.
At the same time, Claire did her best to remake most of the mod arts, this was definitively needed and requested by lot of players cause I've first released the mod with my assets and anyone who played with the mod at this time knows how bad of an artist I am. So we changed everything from the Cherrylings to the crockpot foods, including every single items of the mod to make them looks what we think is nice.
But there are things that we never changed, like the Cherry Trees. Yes, the grow stages have been added later but they're using the same assets than the tall ones that I've made and you just have to look at them to figure they're not... It's not Don't Starve :
I'd love to change those trees to have what you'd like to see when you play this game, unfortunately, Claire don't have that much time to help on Don't Starve mods cause of many other requests and events left and right, and I will never be capable of doing any better than this.
We still really like Cherry Forest but we don't want it to be a tiresome job to make it better, there's also more than the trees to edit, like the turfs and surprise contents that is not included in the mod yet, keep in mind that I'd love to update the mod more often if I could, but at this point, it was very likely for the mod to have no more content if there wasn't this thread.
So that's why I'm here today looking for players that like the mod, artists in seek of Don't Starve artworks to do, or inspired coders.
If anybody on the forums (cause I know some of you but I'm so shy that I'll never bother someone but make a public request in case you're looking to help) is interested you can use this space to share your enthusiasm to join the Cherry Forest team if you want to help us to improve it ! Show us some Cherry Tree designs or something you'd want to see in the mod, we'd get from improvements of what is already here first but then think about future content, maybe yours.
I've also made a Discord group (not a server yet) in case you want to share content massively or chat quickly.
