Biome vegetation overhaul.

Permissions and credits
Changelogs
Current Version 1.20 BETA
Updated to run with latest client version (9th June 2021)
BETA status, pleanty of issues.

Description
Originally I just wanted to rescale the grass and trees, because I think they are scaled up too much, more fitting the proportions for FPS and taking away from the feeling of piloting a Mech.
Finding lots of unused assets, I ended up reworking all the Biomes which include vegetation.
Why are there only spruces anyway?

While I was working on the assets, I decided to modify LODs and viewing distance as well.
Expect a moderate/big FPS impact! I will keep working on improvements, though.
If needed, you can reduce the density and viewing distance by lowering the foliage and view distance options in your graphics setting.

Feel free to leave a comment.
Don't forget to give all the other awesome mods a try. 

Make sure you use the latest version.

Screenshots are taken with Navid's rescale mod enabled, piloting an Annihilator.
