I have created paintable trees to make creating a forest a lot easier.

My problem is the size is not big enough to match the other trees. I went into the .xml (of map) to change it. When I changed the size it does not affect anything.

what did you change exactly?

Note: you can place and duplicate an object very quickly in the GIANTS Editor.

I am sorry I did not mean to say the .xml I MEANT to say map01 file.

<FoliageSubLayer name="treesTanne2" numDensityMapChannels="1" materialId="3060" cellSize="8" viewDistance="2000" terrainOffset="-0.8" objectMask="65520" atlasSize="2" numBlocksPerUnit=".25" width="8" height="8" widthVariance="0.1" heightVariance="3" horizontalPositionVariance="5"/>

I was changing the width and height

you are at the limit [-8, +8] anyhow, so you can't scale it anymore.

You could create a new shape and assign that to as a blockShapeId to that foliageSubLayer.

But I would recommend you to use the default trees ... they look so much nicer than any foliage trees I have seen so far ;)
Again, there is a shortcut which makes it extremly easy to place trees(objects very quickly and efficient.
